Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T 5G Review

Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g is an affordable smartphone that gives users access to the latest generation mobile connectivity technology. Its key features are the chipset, the three-camera system with a 48 MP main module, the satisfyingly large display and the sound quality. We should not forget the battery capacity!


The smartphone has standard dimensions. It will lie comfortably in your hand. The manufacturer has provided several colors that will appeal to a wide range of users. The colors are calm and balanced. In terms of workmanship there is no criticism. The casing is sturdy and the bezels around the display are thin enough. The edges of the Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g are nicely rounded.

From other budget smartphones on the market, this one is distinguished by the coating on the rear panel. It is made of plastic, frosted, but without gradient decoration. The fingerprint scanner is positioned in the power button of the device.


Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g features a 6.53-inch IPS LCD matrix display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The picture refresh rate is 60 Hz, which is normal for this price class, but competitors with 90 Hz and even 120 Hz are already found.

A standard screen is used in the smartphone. Its brightness is 450 nits. Such brightness is enough to comfortably use the phone even when you are on the street on a clear day. 

An interesting point is the certification of the display by the German laboratory TUV Rheinland. That is, it has a low level of blue light emission. It is suitable for use before bedtime.


In terms of performance, the Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g offers standard benchmarks for this class. It relies on a good chipset and fast memory and storage. When playing games and running various apps, you won't experience any slowdown in responsiveness. Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g has a pretty fast RAM, at the flagship level.


The smartphone is equipped with a camera system - 48 MP + 2 MP (which measures the depth of the frame) + 2 MP for macro photos. The appearance of the camera application is standard for all devices of the Chinese company. The only thing to pay attention to is the HDR feature - it turns off every time you exit the app.

The main camera supports 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. Optical stabilization is absent, and the electronic one only supports 720 pixels or 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second.

The depth-of-frame sensor is only triggered during portrait shooting. It works great and you will enjoy using it.

The front camera of Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g is 13-megapixel. It also deserves praise as it is capable of taking pictures in good light. It records 1080 pixel video at 30 frames per second and electronic stabilization.

Autonomous operation

The battery of Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g has a capacity of 5000 mAh. It is among the key advantages of the model. According to the manufacturer, it can withstand up to 800 recharge cycles without noticing a reduction in its capacity. For this, it is important to follow the battery care recommendations. These are: preventing overheating or overcooling.

You get a 22.5 W charger with your smartphone. It is standard for Xiaomi. Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g itself supports 18 W fast charging technology.

The autonomous operation of the smartphone will satisfy you. Tests show that with typical daily use - surfing the web, watching videos and taking photos, you can count on almost 9 hours. On lighter workloads - a day, a day and a half.


Xiaomi redmi note 9t 5g is a budget device with good specs, which will appeal especially to those users who are looking for a cheap model with 5G support. At this stage, its competitors on the market are close in price, but in some indicators it is inferior. Even if you don't need 5G, this model deserves your attention because of: the powerful battery with fast charging technology support, the quality IPS display, the Mediatek chipset with good performance for this class of devices, and also VoLTE/VoWiFi support.

You'll also love this Xiaomi model for its infrared port, quality and loud sound, and audio jack. It is an excellent choice for budget smartphone fans. It comes in black and purple and weighs almost 200 grams.
