Lorenzo5, 23 Jul 2020Hi everyone. Which smartphone is better and which one should I choose, I have an Nokia 7 Plus ... moreHere's a comparison of the pro max and the a51 regarding camera:
Really I didn't see much difference except in low light, the 9 seems to do better in those ones.
On the display no doubt the AMOLED screen is superior by far specially when you look at video in low ambient light.
I bought the phone after watching many gaming tests in YouTube and all I can say is this is the best purchase I ever had after less than 1 week of use! My previous phone Huawei p9 lite 2017 could get 10 fps in Citra in 1x resolution while this note 9 pro runs Pokemon games full speed even at higher resolutions with minor lag here and there which might be fixed on future Citra updates since the emulator is quite new. Beware that Pokemon X/Y, Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire and the Sun and Moon games run fullspeed in the official Citra but lag in the MMJ edition. GameCube games run at full speeds in 1x or higher resolution depending on the game while my old phone lagged hard at 1x resolution in 95% of games I tried. Wii games are a weird case, some play fullspeed at high resolutions while others have minor lag even in 1x, maybe using hack combinations or future dolphin or system updates will improve this. Vulkan is slower than OpenGL, custom Dolphin builds run faster and I don't have graphical glitches like in my older phone, possibly because Snapdragon has better drivers and GPU and dolphin got updated many times since my old tests. Damonps2 obviously runs way faster than my old phone and while speed depends on the game, some run fullspeed while others have lag and many graphical glitches. As for PSP most games already ran good in my old phone but now I can play higher resolutions at full speed, and some games like Silent Hills Shattered Memories which lagged even in 1x now run fullspeed unless I open the flashlight which brings the FPS down a lot and is only working in Vulkan for whatever reasons. Silent Hills Origin works perfect though so maybe future ppsspp updates will fix Shattered Memories.
Now for Android games I only tried Call of Duty Mobile and my jaw dropped, it plays on very high graphic setting even in Battle Royale while my old phone had the low setting available and would freeze for a second in random moments but this redmi plays so smooth at very high!. As for the framerate option it can go up to very high only in the low/medium/high graphics but at very high graphics the max framerate available is high, however I don't notice any difference between high and very high framerate. For some reason I don't have the option to watch advertisements in the redmi phone so this is the only downside and I don't know how to fix this.
Sorry for the long post I just wanted to share my findings and help those who want a good gaming phone, I wanted to buy my first flagship phone but this redmi 9 pro can emulate everything we can so far in Android at full/near full speeds depending on the game and there is potential for higher speeds after future system and emulator updates so I saved a lot of money and won't need another upgrade for years! And when the time comes for upgrading, there's a high chance we will have many mid-range phones with 5nm Snapdragons with even higher speeds! Nintendo Switch might be emulated next on Android and honestly after seeing how fast Citra is I won't be surprised if mid-range phones like mine run games fast (and the the same time I doubt this will happen but let's have hope ;)) I will make another small mini review for non gaming features of this phone's next because this is getting too long xD
Vinay, 22 Jul 2020Why is it taking more than 8 hours to charge the phoneTry turn off the phone before recharge and connect the charger directly to the wall and check connectors are clean and firmly connected.
If that fails you probably have a bad charger, cable or even the phone, hope it's not the case.
Hi everyone. Which smartphone is better and which one should I choose, I have an Nokia 7 Plus and I want to upgrade. So Im choosing between Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Samsung Galaxy A51. So which smartphone has the best camera quality(ultrawide, night mode), battery usage(im a average user, but watch a lot of youtube videos) and good screen to watch youtube, netflix, ect( I know the a51 has super amoled, but is the 9 pro screen not to bad).
Slater1133, 22 Jul 20201. Redmi doesn't have the option to transfer some apps to SD?
I bought a SanDisk 64 GB p... moreI don't have problem with Photos, Videos & Music on the SD Card. You can change that in the settings by putting most of it by default to SD Card.
Regarding the Apps, Xiaomi has always a stand against putting apps in SD Card.
They said they do not support that feature cause they don't want the apps to be corrupted. A removable storage has a high chance of getting corrupted.

For gallery photos, I think that you can install ES explorer and move all the photos to SD card easily without considering 'rooting' your device.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2020im just buy the "made in Indonesia" version of this phone because its where i living... more8 GB RAM......?? 8 /128 GB.....
I thought its only 6/128 GB. Maybe in your country special edition.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2020yea Samsung have fiture to move some application to sd card, but from my experience using Xiao... moreTrue, I agree. Flash, Root and custom recovery.

im just buy the "made in Indonesia" version of this phone because its where i living.. its great value of money i think, in here i buy 8gb ram and 128gb rom for 3.799.000 rupiah.. its like 259.48 USD ❤.... get phone and the 33watt max fast charger support including in bag... i have no complaints.. i hope it will last like my old redmi note 4 (4/64) that still running good even stuck on Android 6 (mediatek version)... thanks
1. Redmi doesn't have the option to transfer some apps to SD?
I bought a SanDisk 64 GB pro, but none apps would get transferred unlike some Samsung phone where FB, Gallery would get transferred.
2. Only music, vids, pics from pc would get installed via pc.
3. The stock Gallery images taken using camera wont either but stay in internal storage?
4. Stock Gallery won't get transferred?
5. Is the stock launcher better vs Nova Prime?
