Anonymous, 09 May 2020..I mean if you wanna Xiaomi (Redmi), just buy Note 9 Pro (global version with 64mp, and 33.5w... morechill bro.. i was pointing out because it seemed that you forgot that redmi is actually xiaomi (well, sub brand). But anyway, I'm not interested in any of these new phones since their build sort of less 'finesse' than brands like samsung, sony, apple or even huaei (but the recent mi phones are actually very nice). Plus I agree that phone now days lack build quality. And I'm very satisfied with my xperia 1, so thanks, but no thank you.
Anonymous, 11 May 2020Plastic is more durable than glass🤭Sure, that's why you use plastic screen (like those first touch screens in last decade), on a smartphone, even today? Capacitive power (:
But, i like more alu back and frame, than glass, it looks better it feels better in the hand, and also, it is durable, and there is no smudgets on the back at all. But, sure plastic can last 500 years. :D
Was hoping this would be an upgrade to the Redmi 4x/4 Prime. A compact 5-inch 16:9 or a 18/19:9 5.6-5.8 incher. Would really like a compact Xiaomi. Don't care if it's SD 439 or 450, too.
silbier.hell, 09 May 2020You do know that redmi is xiaomi right? Right?..I mean if you wanna Xiaomi (Redmi), just buy Note 9 Pro (global version with 64mp, and 33.5w charger), there is a 8nm, new SoC from Qualcomm, more support in updates, more custom roms, more G cam versions, more battey life, even screen resolution is better (it a full hd plus).. and at least back side is not plastic, but GG5, for similar price, also there is a Note 9s, if you wanna better screen, Mi 10 Lite Zoom (with super amoled and 50x digital zoom)..
silbier.hell, 09 May 2020You do know that redmi is xiaomi right? Right?Sure, i'm Xiaomi (Redmi) user, and that's why i say: Plastic is plastic, it looks cheap it feals cheap and it's cheap. MediaTek G70 is made on? 8nm? 10nm? no it is not. Low quality screen is in all Redmi phones with IPS screen in the last 2-3 years (since 18:9 era), add to that, this one have HD plus (only) resolution on 6.6"... Did you remember Xiaomi (Redmi) from 2016? Compact phone, metal build, Redmi 3s, 4000mAh inside, tickness 8.5mm (this one is thicker).. So they goin backwards, also price will be 30-40 higher than it sould be, because they want/need to recover from pandemic situation (and low sales, like others).. So, that, you know, right, stick to youself. Hey, if you wanna plastic Chinese phone with mediaTek, that's ok, but that your problem. We don't want Exynos, here, because is not Qualcomm, imagine what goes for MediaTek. mediaTek is ok in a phone for 100 euros, or less..
Wanted to wait for the Redmi Note 9 pro (it will cost around 310EUR in my country, the 6GB, 64GB variant), but bought instead the Redmi Note 8 Pro (I paid 225EUR for 6GB, 64GB variant). Not too much improvement, only the SD chipset and the 30W charger is what interested me, but not worth almost 100EUR extra for this.
Also, at around 330EUR you could get now the Xiaomi Mi 9 (new), which is a better phone than Redmi Note Pro series.
If you don't care about custom ROMs, Mediatek is just fine, and these 2 big cores are a huge upgrade for Redmi on a tight budget.
stanley77, 08 May 2020But mediatek bleeee not supported cpuNot anymore in 2020 mediatek is better than snapdragon in low/medium price Soc
Anonymous, 08 May 2020The SD439 is an octa-core with 8x A53-cores, not a quad core CPU guys ;)I think the article was referring to the 4x1.95 GHz Cortex-A53 cores of the total 8 cores

Anonymous, 08 May 2020Redmi 9 series is great except for redmi note 9 pro (max for indians)Plastic back, plastic frame, mediocre screen quality, MediaTek SoC, gian dimensions, fat, heavy.. = unknown Chinese phone with price tag of 50$.. So, whats so special in Redmi 9? Color? Haha
Even Xiaomi had/have better phones, for 100-150-200$, with Snapdragon SoC.
