Is it Worth Buying RealMe 9 4G?

RealMe 9 Review

RealMe 9 4G is not worth buying because the phone is overpriced while the phone is powered by Snapdragon 680 which doesn’t justify the Rs 17999 price tag, we’re getting the same SoC in a 13k smartphone and also, RealMe is laying about that 108MP sensor too, all in all, don’t waste your money on RealMe 9 4G…

As I have said, don’t expect much from the camera department. 108MP label does help to market the smartphone and some users will buy this phone because of the 108MP sensor but in Real life, it should be either 64MP or 32MP sensor because Snapdragon 680 is not cable to use 108MP sensor.

The display is not that smooth, there are some frame drops and lag while using smartphones because of the Snapdragon 680 processor.

The processor is not powerful enough to handle the 90hz refresh rate, so that’s the reason, why you will see frame drop here and there.

Overall, RealMe should have gone with Snapdragon 695 processor but they didn’t because they already have RealMe 9 Pro 5G at an 18k price, so they can’t add the same processor at the same price.

RealMe needs to optimize that 108MP sensor along with others, so this can be called an 18k smartphone otherwise, this is just another smartphone that is launched at 18k that happens to come from RealMe and not from Samsung.

The RealMe 9 Pro 5G comes with a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. The 33W charger will take about 59 minutes to charge from 0 to 100%.

Overall, the battery will last for a day, the Snapdragon 680 SoC is power-efficient SoC and it will give better battery life.


I think you already know what to do but still, I would recommend you to skip the RealMe 9 4G and consider the POCO X4 Pro 5G (review) or even RealMe 9 Pro 5G (review)
