Xiaomi Redmi 9A Review

Budget smartphones for many users are a practical solution, not a matter of heartbreak. To choose the right model, they take into account the characteristics, design and price. Do not expect advanced flagship features as they are an unjustified expense. One of the new offerings in the low price range is Redmi 9A. What impressions he leaves, you can learn from the following lines.


If in the more expensive smartphones we get screens through slots, then in the cheaper ones there will be a slot, here the frames will be wider, the display will be slightly blue. Therefore, the choice of model is different. The priorities are different.

Among the important indicators are the presence of a sensor for automatic adjustment of the brightness of the backlight and at least the average quality of the oleophobic coating. The display should be flat. This is exactly what the Redmi 9A offers. In addition, the brightness margin is good. Even in cloudy weather you will be able to read the information from the screen.

Redmi 9A is quality made. The hull does not emit creaks. It is made of matte plastic. The models in black, blue or green look great.

In itself, this smartphone is great. Fits in the description "shovel" (dimensions 164.9 x 77 x 9 mm at a weight of 196 grams). It will definitely appeal to users who like to have a large screen from which to watch their favorite content.


And speaking of display, its diagonal in the Redmi 9A is 6.53 inches. The matrix is ​​based on IPS LCD technology. The resolution is 1600 x 720 pixels, and the pixel density per inch is 269. Compared to the total area of ​​the front panel, the screen occupies 81.1%. This is a decent indicator of the budget class. The aspect ratio of the Redmi 9A screen is 20: 9.


This budget model will not impress you with superb performance. Its power is typical of the price range, which makes it suitable for playing lighter games and using less resource-intensive applications. To enjoy comfortable interaction, lower the settings. They should not be maximum.

Redmi 9A is based on the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset (8 cores 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53). It has 2/3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. You can expand the latter with the help of a microSDXC card, for which a separate slot is provided. The graphics are assigned to the PowerVR GE8320. The operating system is Android 10.


Redmi 9A has a single 13 MP rear camera with aperture f / 2.2. Can record videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second. For higher quality, the manufacturer has offered LED flash and HDR. The front camera is also single. It is a 5 MP module with f / 2.2 aperture and HDR function.

It can't be said that the Redmi 9A is called to take exciting photos. One thing is clear - the smartphone can be used to capture and capture exciting moments in video.

Autonomous work.

The impressive Redmi 9A is a phone with a large battery capacity - 5000 mAh. You can enjoy it for up to three days before you have to recharge. Since fast charging technology is not provided, you need to take a few hours to have 100% charge. For convenience, you can leave the smartphone to recharge at night.


Redmi 9A is a smartphone that will appeal to anyone who wants to have a large screen and a lot of battery for a minimum of money. It is not designed to meet the expectations of gamers or fans of mobile photography. At the same time, it provides access to basic functionalities that will make you feel ready to meet everyday challenges. You can surf the web, read, view photos and enjoy videos.

This Xiaomi model is suitable for people of all ages. It is perfect as a first device and can be defined as a super practical investment that you will not regret. As it is a representative of the ultra-budget class, you will not find surpluses in Redmi 9A. There is no fingerprint scanner, no notification indicator or NFC, but there is support for dual SIM cards.
