RealMe 9i 5G review: Delete, if you can

Written by Rahul Makwana


RealMe 9i 5G price in India starts from Rs 14,999 for 4GB RAM + 64GBGB storage in India.


It comes with 50MP primary sensor, 2MP Depth, and 2MP macro lens while there is a 8MP selfie shooter on the front

Now, first of all, those 2MP+2MP sensors won’t do much, so if you can ignore them, these sensors will look good on the rear side but they’re useless.

RealMe needs to work because the sensor has some kind of dynamic range issue, it overexposes the background for no reason. Now, it doesn’t happen every single time but when it happens, you will get angry with the phone.

The colors are also not that great, there is softness when you click images under low lights while under good lighting, the images come out a bit saturated.

Overall, RealMe should have added Ultra-Wide instant of 2MP+MP sensor or they should have worked on the primary sensor.


The phone comes with a 6.60-inches 90Hz LCD display with a resolution of 2408 x 1080 pixels and 400nits brightness.

The 400 nits brightness is not that great, RealMe should have at least gone with 600 nits. The screen is visible under the sunlight but sometimes, it gets hard to see the texts if you’re standing in the SUN direction.

Overall, for the price of Rs 14999, the display could have been better.


The RealMe 9i 5G is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 810 6nm processor and its runs on RealMe UI 3.0 based on Android 12

Overall, you will be more than happy with its performance. You can also buy this device for gaming too but don’t expect heavy gaming as the processor is not made for especially gaming.


RealMe has only added a single speaker which works well but hey, it can’t match the stereo speaker quality, so yes, RealMe has done cost-cutting in the speakers.


We’re seeing 50W and even 33W fast charging at Rs 15000 price tag but RealMe went with only 187W charging support which is not acceptable at all.

By the way, the phone has a 5000mAh battery along with 18W charging support and yes, the charger is supplied in the box.


The RealMe 9i 5G doesn’t provide RealMe Value, it’s a bit pricey compared to what we’re getting under Rs 15000 while RealMe has made tons of compromises which is hard to digest.
