Redmi Note 9 is powered by MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, comes with 6.53 inches FHD+ display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, whopping 5,020 mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support, the phone has plastic build which is a downgrade from Redmi Note 8, and Redmi Note 9 is priced at Rs 11,999 for 4GB of Ram and 64GB storage.
As you can tell from the specification, the phone is well priced because right now, we don’t have any other good smartphone at 12k in India. You can buy POCO M2 Pro but it will cost you around Rs 13,999 while RealMe 6 is priced at Rs 14,999. Now, let’s see whether you should buy Redmi Note 9 or not?
Is it Worth buying Redmi Note 9?
Yes, Redmi Note 9 is worth buying Rs 11,999 because it’s powered by MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, FHD+ display, whopping 5,020 battery with 22.5W fast charging support. Also, at 12k, we don’t have any other good options. Of course, you can buy POCO M2 Pro but that will cost you Rs 13,999 which is two thousand more than Redmi Note 9.
By the way, if you want the best smartphone and if you can add two thousand more then just go with POCO M2 Pro, you will get the best processor and there won’t be any ads in the OS.
Redmi Note 9 is for those people who don’t want to spend more than Rs 12,000. I can also understand, not many people want to spend more money on mobiles because they are getting what they want at a budget price range.
So bottom line, Redmi Note 9 is worth buying at Rs 11,999 but keep in mind, if Xiaomi increases the price to 12,999 then I would say, just skip Redmi Note 9 and go with POCO M2 Pro or even RealMe 6.

What other smartphones you’re getting at Rs 11,999?
Only one smartphone and that is, RealMe Narzo 10 but this phone has MediaTek Helio G80 SoC. There is no point in buying Narzo 10.
One more thing, this is a budget smartphone, so don’t expect too much. Also, the phone can run games like PUGB Mobile, COD Mobile and many others but it won’t be very good because the phone is powered by MediaTek Helio G80 SoC.
That said, you will able to play games but if you play for hours then you will see some lags and frame drop. In short, if you want best gaming experience then take a look at RealMe 6 but if don’t want to pay 15k then POCO M2 Pro will also provide better gaming experience then Redmi Note 9.
That’s it, I hope you got the answer but still if you have any question then do let me know in the comment box below
