  • 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.

    It's very good

    It is an excellent device, good design, a battery that lasts until the next day, the only thing is that the processing needs to be optimized in some games but if you can play well the cameras are decent for the price range if I recommend it

    Good phone at an affordable price but in performance leaves to be desired

    I have the redmi note 9 global version with 3 GB of ram and 64 GB of storage, the camera is good, but not excellent, the screen I like although with a little shading on the sides and in the perforated camera but I do not know much notice If it is not seen carefully, I do not like the plastic construction since as it squeaks a little in the fingerprint reader, the battery that is satisfied, as for the audio, the truth is that it lacks more power and improved audio, in performance if that I am not satisfied since at the time of playing pubg there is no point in giving you higher graphics if at the time of playing it is going to be lapping with each movement and the phone gets quite hot during the games, the telephone connectivity and wifi are very good , I would have liked the cell phone, the back was glass like the redmi note 8, the connectivity is fine and for the basics except for facebook that lags a bit. I like the cell phone more, I'm not completely satisfied with it.

    Good but lage

    In all the time that I have had the device I have tried it with different games and I have seen that with some the tactile response begins to fail, With pubg it starts well but after 5 min of starting the game the tactile response begins to fail, in COD Mobile fails to start but it is something that is fixed by lowering the notification bar

    Good mobile for the price

    A mobile for everyday use, with a good battery and good system performance. I expected more from the battery, it seems that this Mediatek consumes more than a Qualcomm with similar characteristics. You need a case to protect the camera well, which protrudes a lot, underneath is the fingerprint reader that works very well. I was surprised by the gaming performance, even with Fornite, although I miss a little more contrast in the automatic mode, I had to force the saturation. The screen sins a bit of that lack of brightness and contrast in broad daylight. The sound from the speaker is the worst, it has no force whatsoever, and it distorts a little when you turn up the volume. On the other hand, through headphones, you can hear it very well. The wifi reception is strong, the 4g reception is also good. The camera is normal shooting bad, although it is saved in daytime photos, and for the macro mode.

    Good but buggy

    It is a good phone and it fulfills in many ways but its personalization layer gets too stuck and gives a bad experience of use

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.
