Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 review

Expert review

A quad rear camera on a sub-£200 phone? Yes, that’s the hook that might make you consider the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 as your next smartphone purchase. Xiaomi is never prudent with the specs on its smartphones, but is its camera quality really up to scratch at such a forgiving price? We sent it to our test lab to find out.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • What’s it like to use?
  • How long does the battery last?
  • How good are the cameras?
  • Is there anything I should watch out for?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Should I buy it?
