Among the cheap models we also find the very recent REDM Note 9T 5G, which in addition to the new connection standard is all about reliability and concreteness, so let's find out more closely in ours complete review.

Il design it is in full style with what the modern market offers us at the moment, therefore nothing innovative from this point of view but nevertheless well cared for well assembled. Laterally on the right we find the traditional volume adjustment and power buttons, where the latter has also been integrated biometric sensor to unlock the device. This works wonderfully, with fingerprint recognition 10 times out of 10 but above all the positioning was really perfect, which is easy both with right and left hand.

Mirror then we find the SIM cart which offers us well 3 slot, including two dedicated to SIM in nano format that allow 5G connectivity on both slots at the same time, currently a unique function in the world. My tests were performed with a Very Mobile operator that does not push too much with the band but I have always obtained the maximum during navigation, without ever losing signals or jamming that forced me to switch the signal. However, we can expand the integrated memory by means of a micro SD card with support up to 512 GB without giving up the Dual SIM Dual Standby functionality.

The telephone sector is really excellent and the sound fidelity in conversation returned in the ear capsule is definitely excellent. On the lower profile we find it system speaker that gives powerful and distortion-free sounds both when listening to music and in hands-free conversation, but above all it is the stereo sound in combination with the ear capsule one of the strengths of this Redmi Note 9T 5G, offering a truly unique multimedia immersion in this price range. Also in the lower part there is also the main microphone and the input Type-C for recharging the device including the support OTG, as well as the jack from 3,5 mm to take advantage of your favorite headphones.

The top profile houses the second microphone for ambient noise reduction, the infrared transmitter which will allow you to control TVs, DVD players, etc. using your smartphone as a remote control and a small slot used as a vent for the ear capsule during stereo sound.

The back of the Redmi Note 9T 5G is a single body in opaque polycarbonate with a slightly embossed processing (knurling) that increases the grip with the device. Excellent construction that is not at all "Cheap" and the fact that fingerprints on the back are almost not retained at all thanks to the processing texture, thus allowing, if necessary, to use the smartphone even without a back cover, Here on the back we find the photographic compartment, with a decidedly iconic shape, a sort of porthole formed by a circle and a sort of sectioned ellipse, in which they have been inserted 3 optics and a single tone LED flash.

Redmi Note 9T 5G is a smartphone that does not adapt to one-handed uses, although I reiterate the good grip given by the body, but we have decidedly imported dimensions and weight, that is 161,9 x 77,3 x 9,05 mm with a weight of 199 grams, very well balanced along the entire axis of the smartphone and in any case justified by a battery from 5000 mAh with support to quick charge to 18W and guaranteed for over 800 charge cycles by the company, before this degenerates in performance, which are a further strength of this terminal, managing to take home safely even 8 hours of active display on a single charge without ever making use of WiFi.

On the front of the smartphone we find in the upper frame of the display the brightness and proximity sensors which are always reactive and reliable, as well as a large ear capsule while a notification LED is absent. The frames are well optimized and pleasing to the eye, in fact even the chin of the device is poco pronounced than the competition, offering 3 virtual function keys that can be eliminated if necessary to take advantage of the on-screen navigation gesture. But the display is the highlight of this banquet offered by Redmi Note 9T 5G, as we are in the presence of a panel from 6,53 inches diagonal which offers resolution Full HD + (2340 x 1080 pixels) in technology IPS, but wait to judge it badly, because we have to support the DRM Widevine L1 as well as the 'HDR10, thus allowing the viewing of streaming content in high definition.

But above all, what is amazing is the color rendering, really faithful to the original and well calibrated, albeit at the software level we have the possibility to further adjust the color temperature and white point. We are talking about a display protected by a glass Corning Gorilla Glass 5, with 1500: 1 contrast ratio, 395 ppi, form factor in 19,5: 9 and peak brightness of 450 nits, more than enough for an excellent view even in direct sunlight. Also present the Reading mode, the Night mode and the filter for the reduction of blue light certified by TUV Rheinland.

Finally, the design is decidedly modern and pleasant, as we find the punch hole moved to the left profile, in which the selfie camera is inserted, which will also allow the phone to be unlocked by means of face recognition, with very short times and above all reliability in recognition even in adverse environmental lighting conditions. The oleophobic treatment of the display is a little less convincing, unlike the general fluidity of the touch, which will allow us, for example, to wake up or turn off the display with a double tap or by lifting the smartphone.

As already mentioned, the Redmi Note 9T has full support for the 20 band, almost obvious to say but it is good to remember it, offering connectivity Dual 5G Standby but also the rest of the specifications appear complete, considering the presence of the module Dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS with quick fixes even on satellites Galileo but also the FM radio, which we often do not find in the top of the range from over 800 euros and full support for mobile payments through the NFC sensor.

But the excellent hardware is also composed of the performing processor MediaTek Dimension 800U, octa-core solution clocked up to 2.4 GHz  and production process a 7nm,  Mali G57 GPU supported by internal memory type UFS 2.1 for 64GB cutting or UFS 2.2 with Write Booster and HPB for 128GB cutting, while the quantity of RAM, or 4 GB of size LPDDR4X. All this allows the Redmi Note 9T 5G to always run smoothly and without slowdowns, offering decidedly comfortable user experiences even with demanding games from a graphic point of view, obtaining respectable performance without ever undergoing particular overheating.

The excellent Dimensity 800U processor in addition to offering good performance is also convincing for the optimization of consumption as we have already seen a few lines above, surprising also from the system management point of view, by means of MIUI 12 with security patches updated to December 2020 and soul based on Android 10 which translates into full support for the Play Store and all Google services already pre-installed on the ROM and excellent RAM management. I will not go into this aspect as now MIUI is a known interface and soon we should see the launch of MIUI 12.5 as well as there are already numerous rumors about the arrival of MIUI 13.

The photographic compartment on the rear relies on the sensor from 48 megapixel with opening f / 1.79, a 1/2 "sensor, 0.8μm Pixel, 4μm 1-in-1.6 Super Pixel and autofocus that allows you to shoot videos up to 4K is 30 fps, but only with the Full HD resolution at 30 fps, we can enjoy the digital stabilization. The step forward as regards the photographic rendering was remarkable by the Asian brand, which on this terminal offers truly outstanding performance, with results rich in detail and very natural colors, even without the aid of artificial intelligence AI , while good support for automatic HDR which works very well when asked by the software. Even the photos at night, with a good calibration of the settings, allows photos of a good standard.

The primary sensor is flanked by two further optics from 2 MP each, with opening f / 2.4, 1.75μm pixels, which only perform a photography function macro and data collection for the shallow depth of field. La selfie camera is instead a drive from 13 MP f / 2.25, also with shots of good quality and in any case superior to direct competitors. However, it is the software goodies that make the difference, because for example we have the possibility of embellishing a trivial photo of a building with the background of a sky, with very particular filters, functions increasingly sought after by young people, which in my opinion is the target main target that Redmi Note 9T 5G is aimed at.

CONCLUSIONS

Undoubtedly I liked this Redmi Note 9T 5G, both for the build quality that transmits the feeling of having a higher-end smartphone in your hands, and for the excellent display, but the presence of a super complete connectivity is not negligible either. boasts to FM Radio and NFC, as well as to a Dual 5G. Autonomy is a workhorse of the brand's devices and even in this case it does not disappoint. If we also add the excellent launch price, or € 229,90, well I would say that we are in the presence of a smartphone of sure interest and that I would recommend to anyone. On the same price range we find many other smartphones but which always suffer from some lack or uncertainty, while Redmi Note 9T 5G never disappoints and therefore if we do not want to call it Best Buy, it is certainly the best device that you can buy at this moment. figure.

Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.
