Redmi Note 9 Pro review: not a budget competitive smartphone

The Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone is focused on the best value for money. The new Note 9 Pro follows a familiar formula for high performance and quality, albeit at a markedly increased price. The final new device has everything that Xiaomi promises us, but it looks a bit boring.

Review Redmi Note 9 Pro

The importance of the Note line for Redmi can hardly be overestimated – it was it that allowed Xiaomi to become one of the leading phone manufacturers in the world. The Redmi Note 4 has sold over 10 million units, and the Note 7 Pro is the top-seller of all mid-range smartphones in some countries. In general, it is important for the company not to lose face with the release of a new model.

Of course, competitors are on the alert. Realme has already managed to release a lot of great devices that are not inferior in functionality to Xiaomi smartphones and in some ways even surpass them. Therefore, it is not easy for a Chinese company to keep the bar high, but to do something even better. Is this Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro? Find out in my review.
