I've being using the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S for ten months.
Battery that lasts days even when I use an Amazfit Tracker Band 5 at all times, the only thing that I don't like is the lack of reading when I'm in the sun but I knew about that when I bought the cellphone.
Bought another for my son and he is happy with it.
Doea someone know how to make the navigation bar in black? Thanks
Have had this phone more a month now, upgraded MUI... no issues, ZERO for me. Battery performance is on point, tethered for whole day while WFH it was 72% by EOD.
Cant ask for more but let me keep observing

As in the "most users will face the issue" were also not my words but from one of the sites doing reviews ... and judging by the amount of comments under the threads that are discussing this failure there are not just few users facing this. Don't get me wrong, if you are one of the lucky people that don't face the problem good for you - but this issue is known to Xiaomi since last year and there is stillno solution ATM.

That's exactly what I meant - there is a portion of users who are experiencing certain issues with the phone, as with ANY phone, but a vast majority is happy with how the phone works.
I haven't experienced any of the problems you mentioned, and neither have any of my friends who own this model.
Simply put, and generally speaking - this is an excellent phone.

Well ... Feel free to look up with Google. Just type "Redmi Note 9s receiver problem". Below is a copy/paste of some of the threads (also from the Xiaomi official page).
Today, it is coming to light that a section of Redmi Note 9S users is facing an issue with their device’s earpiece. This, according to reports, resulted from updating the device to firmware version V220.127.116.11 (QDWMIXM). The issue seems to be a little widespread and here are some of the complaints we came across (1, 2, 3).
Let's not forget that in the case of the Redmi Note 9S, not even restoring the terminal itself could solve this problem with the volume level of the call speaker. Something that is also happening in the Redmi Note 9 Pro and to a lesser extent in the Redmi Note 9.
YOU MAY BE INTERESTED: Some units of the Redmi Note 9, 9S and 9 Pro have a serious problem with their camera For its part, Xiaomi has already reported that it is aware of the problem and that the development team is working on it in order to launch, as soon as possible, a solution that avoids this annoying failure.
I think, this is a good phone . i am using this phone since many time and its going good everything is good

Went through all the updates, never a problem. Still think this is the best value-for-money phone. The issue you described definitely does NOT affect 'most users'.
Run from this phone. I bought the phone, had it for a month or so and the receiver went mute (so basically one can do everything with the phone except ... CALL!). Thought this was something that could be fixed by factory reset - NOT. Since I was away for work and couldn't take it to the dealer I googled a bit to try and find a solution ... what I found is that this error is normal for this phone, that most users will encounter this error and that the solution provided by Xiaomi (since they don't even think on fixing this) is just to use all the time a headset (that btw. is not included).
Sadly stuttering UI has not been fixed. When system uptime reaches some days, system animations start look less smooth and only reboot helps. Still the same issue as before on 12.0.1.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2021The reality is that battery is draining faster after the updateI guess i'll never update this device then
Leo, 21 Oct 2021What about the battery condition and cameras?? Any suggestions...The reality is that battery is draining faster after the update

Bit faster, battery sam... moreOk, I understand there are different opinions, this update made me stay with this phone for now... And with previous updates I almost ordered other phone... Maybe there are some regional difference that affects update
Leo, 21 Oct 2021What about the battery condition and cameras?? Any suggestions...Very good.
Leo, 18 Oct 2021A bit confused about upgrading my 9S to V18.104.22.168 Global. Because I'm seeing totally oppo... moreupdate on miui 12.5 as far as cameras and batteries are concerned is very bad, if these are important items for you then don't update, and if they aren't then feel free to update, if floating windows are important to you, and the response to gestures that was good on miui 12 .They ruined my phone so much that I sell it and never buy xiaomi again ...
