I used Samsung galaxy s+ and Redmi note 9 pro indoors. While signal strength of Samsung galaxy s+ is -80dBm (good signal strength), that of Redmi note 9 pro is -100dBm (poor signal strength). At -100dBm, you could hardly browse internet with your phone. Hope tweak in miui 12 will improve signal strength reception of this phone? We keep our fingers crossed.
Having used this phone for 2 months now. This is my honest review. The phone is ok in other aspects except for the mobile data network reception quality. The phone performs poorly in a weak network area and sometimes indoors due to probably cheap mobile data network antenna Xiaomi used or bugs in the miui 11. Time will tell by the time miui 12 is released.

Some Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro users have complained that the camera module on their units has gathered dust particles, making the rear camera pretty much useless.
Mi Forum is flooded with such posts where users have shared their ordeal and even shared live photos of the dust sitting on the camera. So far, Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro units seem to have been largely affected. Some Redmi Note 9 Pro Max users have also complained about facing such issues.

Global version - just forget it. Google for it and 99% say they will return it it seems

Phone Settings button is missing, I think it's a bug. Therefore, I can't activate call recording. Also there's no recording button. Every other phone I know, including my older Xiaomi's have it
jamnana, 01 Sep 2020Redmi 9 Pro or Samsung galaxy a50? Must choose one help me plzzOf course note 9 pro. It's so much better!
I live in London and we have the global version. Full of bugs and essential things do not work. My WLAN disconnects when the phone is sleeping and there is virtually no GPS reception. My A40 got GPS signal in a few sec, my note Pro 9 is not able to detect Galileo nor any number of satellites within minutes. Phone will be returned after waiting for a fix for 2 months. Really useless. Will go back to a brand who knows what they do.
How is the sunlight visibility and how loud is the speaker for listening to radio/voice if this is in your jeans pocket?
Also how useful is the macro Camera, how much better is is for small things compared to the standard lens? (or a typical smartphone non-macro lens?) i.e. if you zoom in on a standard lens is it similar?
