The strengths of the Redmi Note 9 Pro
A great processor
The Redmi Note 9 Pro has all the credentials to become the best mobile phone for 200 euros, and much of the fault lies with its processor, since this device is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, a mid-range processor, but which has excellent performance. . I had the opportunity to test its operation in combination with MIUI 11 when I tested the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, and the truth is that you can't put any of it, but it is one of the best mid-range processors.
In terms of performance, is a terminal superior to its competitors with the Snapdragon 660, or the usual mid-range MediaTek, and will allow you to run all kinds of games and applications. Performance isn't that of a high-end Qualcomm, but it's close enough, so if power is one of your concerns, you can rest easy with this device.
Furthermore, this processor is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM, which, together with this processor, automatically implies that it will be longer than its predecessor with Snapdragon 660 and 3 or 4 GB of RAM. In two years, this Redmi Note 9 Pro will continue to be a competent terminal.
A battery that aims very high
Historically, one of the characteristic features of this family of terminals is to have a fairly large battery, which ensures users a good autonomy which, at least, can last a whole day's work.
This terminal has one 5.020 mAh battery, that, taking into account that its screen is 6,67 inches, it should have no problem when it comes to powering the device for more than a day. In addition, having compatibility with fast charging at 30W, with a recharge time, the device will offer hours of autonomy
As always, the duration area of battery will depend to some extent on how we use the device, but even so, it would be normal for the battery to be more than enough for a whole day without having to go through the charger.
A good main camera and interesting additions
Xiaomi maintains its commitment to the terminal in terms of the camera and has equipped it with a 64 megapixel main sensor from Samsung, an 8-megapixel wide angle, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 5-megapixel macro lens. And the truth is, this camera looks very good.
In addition to this, the terminal has some interesting additions, such as the presence of the NFC connectivity, which will allow you to install Google Pay and pay with your smartphone in a good number of stores, as well as easily connect your mobile with a Bluetooth device.
Additionally, the terminal includes a fingerprint reader on the side and an infrared sensor in so that you can control your devices as if this terminal were a remote control.
