  • Everything is okay except for gaming.

    When playing PUBG or COD, I always need to clear my ram when it lagging.

  • This is the best phone I've ever had, and it's not even expensive!

    I think the design is very modern and stylish, especially the Polar White version (that's what I have). The battery is okay but it doesn't last VERY long, but I use my phone a lot and maybe that's why. The speaker quality and volume is outstanding at this price, I literally thought it was a stereo speaker when I first heard it. The GPS is very accurate and well calibrated out of the box. MIUI 11 is very stylish as well and it doesn't lag at all. I do not play games, so I can't say anything about performance in games, but in social media, youtube, google etc. the phone is very snappy and fast, it never lags for me. I like the fullscreen gestures. The cameras, at this price point, are outstanding too. You can take macro shots, bokeh (and it's good), slow-mo videos, wide-angle pictures. It also has NFC and an IR blaster, which is good.

    A little disappointed in performance

    Laguea clash royale sometimes I get "blocked" when I play 4 games on some occasions For the rest it is quite good if you do not want to demand a lot, although there are phones like realme 6.7 or a little X3 that surpass this in everything. If you want something more economical I recommend a Realme C3 although the camera of this is a bit shit in general it has not met my expectations in performance but they have exceeded in camera, battery and screen

    Ok but there are better options for a little more price

    In fact, the variations of the redmi note 9 series itself (that is, rn 9s or pro) are better, MUCH better than the plain rn9.In fact, in many places the difference is very small, so go for the variations.

    Good but can be improved by updates

    I start with the camera, I consider it to be good, in stock but it can be improved a lot at night, the quality increases with the Google Cam, in terms of daily use I think it lacks optimization, the battery is good

    If you are looking for a cheap and balanced cell phone this is your option

    Many complain about the camera but if you install the Google camera, the photos improve radically.

    Sadness

    The camera has poor color reproduction, few settings, it’s probably better not to use it at night. Phone management generally leaves much to be desired for another company, malfunctions, you have to reboot. Ads and standard applications are annoying and cannot be simply disabled

    Despair

    If you are playing in a heavy app, the others will restart ... for example if I open real racing3 and open facebook or some app that doesn't need too much ram ... the game restarts. I thought it was the game because it is somewhat heavy but I checked it with other very light apps and the same thing happens. I can't have two apps open ... the processes stay open but when I go to the other one, it starts again ... in short, the phone is nice ... BUT IT'S GARBAGE !!!

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
