Our Redmi 9T video review is up
The Redmi 9T is the latest addition to the line of budget-friendly devices from Xiaomi. Now that our written review shows how we draw attention to the video division to find out if it’s worth considering.
Just outside of bats, the 9T is almost identical to another recent budget offering – the Poco M3. The specifications are the same everywhere, although you get a more toned design with the Redmi 9T and a slightly higher price of € 140 compared to € 120 on the Poco M3. You get an extra 8MP ultra-wide cam on 9T as well as splash-proof protection (though not IP-rated). Another important addition is NFC, although it is market dependent.
As for the rest of the package, you get the familiar 6.53-inch IPS LCD with FHD + resolution and a water drop hook for 8MP selfie cam. The panel scored decent brightness levels for its price. More importantly, though, the massive 6,000 mAh battery delivered a 150-hour endurance rating in our test – it’s among the highest we’ve seen to date.
The main 48MP camera delivered quite good images in daylight with slightly warmer colors, while ultrawide and macro sensors were less impressive. The Snapdragon 662 handled testing and use in the real world fine, though there is a drop in consistency with more demanding games.
Overall, the Redmi 9T is a practical and quite capable starter phone with excellent battery life that deserves our recommendation.
