Hi there this is Ranchi then in this video let's do the full review of this redmi note 9 pro and now i've used this device for quite some time for example in March I used it off for almost 3-4 days and now in April I have been now using it for almost about two weeks over two and a half weeks of usage and I've also got one ot update during that time so let me share my experience what do I feel about this budget oriented mid-range Android device by Xiaomi I'll talk about the pros and some of the unique cons that I have noticed with this device so let's get on with this and guys I won't get into everything

Personal mobility posted the unboxing video watch that if you want to get a general overview about this device and also in fact I already posted the camera review of this one again I leave those links in the description so let's talk about this one and the thing with this device is that it starts at 13,000 rupees and for the specs it is actually having some very good specs so in terms of hardware I would say they have packed a lot of hardware on this one in fact it comes with the Snapdragon 720 GSoC it is actually not bad and it also has this massive almost six point seven inch

Screen it's a Full HD screen IPS LCD but let's talk about what are the things that I like first thing if I talk about this one is that it looks very stylish it does not look like a what do you say value oriented device in terms of looks it looks very cool in fact the back is also glass it's not plastic or anything I haven't put out what do you say that cover and some fingerprints but if you wipe them it actually looks very sleek so in terms of looks and the feel it gives you a feeling of a phone that is actually a lot more expensive in terms of looks and also in terms of build

Quality for the price I would say they have done a good job it doesn't have any creaking noise or anything like that so it's good yes but the external frame is hard plastic but it doesn't give you that feeling of cheapness so that's nice and I also like the fact that this one still retains the I got blaster so you can use it to control devices like television air conditioner use it like a remote so that functionality is there on this one and also it still retains a 3.5 mm head on Jan now let's move on and again I said totally it has that six point six

Seven inch IPS LCD screen and it's a good quality screen that you are getting you have auto brightness and all these things and the terms of viewing angles also it was not bad even an outdoor situation when I left it on auto brightness it was any quickly brighter so again in terms of display I didn't have a problem many of you keep asking me about display again as you can see I didn't have any hot spots also on the display so the display is fine on this one now let's talk about the what do you say your piece on this from the earpieces over here and here I have to

Say I took a lot of calls and I'm happy to say that the year piece quality is actually good on this one the it was actually very clear and loud and even the microphone quality was good because other people did not complain about something muddy or anything like that so in terms of earpiece and the microphone mr. Goodwin I would rate it almost as high as nine out of ten because this is one area where some of the earlier Xiaomi mid-range force I didn't have a really good here place but here I didn't have that issue now let's also talk about network reception this

Is different from a gear piece this is actual cellular network reception and I did test this one with eight and Gio here in Hyderabad and here guys if you recall this is my office where the signal is actually pretty low right now it's still on my what do you say it'll sell and here it is actually getting me slightly one more extra bar than many of the other mid-range phones that I test and in fact I can take cellular calls in this room without getting disconnected all the time which is a great deal so in terms of network reception I would say this one is actually better than many of

The mid-range phones I would say slightly better about 15 percent of their time so that's actually a nice thing and also it does support if I switch on Wi-Fi this is with a tenth it does support Wi-Fi colleague also so that is supported so in terms of earpiece and network reception I'm actually pretty happy in terms of network reception I was surprised as many of the mid-range phones here if I take the call in this room that I do care disconnected now if we talk about the UI it is having that me who I have which is

Again you'll hate it or you love it so that's the same thing on this one and you don't get an offer like this by default if you swipe it is to open up this stupid me browser and I need as you notice this it's this is one thing I hate on this as you can see sherry stuff it tries to push you so this is something that I really do not like you can disable it but this is switched on by default so again be a little bit careful about that that is a thing that I do not like about this that me who I implement Asian I'll talk about this in the concession but that is there but

Apart from that the UI is fine but one a place where I know the slides that does is that I'm using the full navigation guys and as you can see if you do like this it goes to the multitasking and it has all the gestures but I noticed that I noticed minor animation lag sometimes when I'm just going back to the home screen like this you might not notice this this but I as I tested a lot of devices I noticed that but apart from that in general day-to-day performance it's fine it works fine this is the higher-end variant that comes with 6k bytes of RAM and in this one the RAM

Management is also fine I would say it keeps many of the apps if you have used in memory for a couple of hours but again has it's me why done really mean why is very aggressive in RAM management that's why it gets actually very good battery life so if you haven't used an app for a couple of hours it will actually put it out of the memory so that is also something you have to note I didn't face a problem but yeah with true color sometimes I noticed that but there is a setting inside you can go it and manually enabled at to keep it in memory but again in terms of ROM manager

It is fine but again on the aggressive side so if you leave an app if you haven't used it for couple hours it might put it out of the memory now in terms of what do you say in hand feel as I've told you I like it but if you notice the fingerprint scanner is here on this side on this but I'm happy to say that the fingerprint scanner is very responsive and in fact though this is a power button also power on and off button you don't have to actually press it for the fingerprint if you just pop in it unlocks and as can see it is very faster I don't have

Any issues with this fingerprint scanner and you get used to this very quickly so the fingerprint scanner is not an issue I thought this would be an issue and also like the tactile feel of the buttons as I told you I'm on the bed though it's costing just about 13,000 the build quality that is one area where I feel Xiaomi has done a good job now let's also talk about the snapdragon 720 GSoC and this is a very good chip site again as i've told you i didn't face any issues of lag enos or anything apart from that UI lag or something that because of the mean UI and this

Processor handles everything you throw on it in day to day usage I didn't have a problem with this one it's fine and it's actually I would say this is slightly under clawed version of the Snapdragon 730 GSoC so it is actually even more power efficient and because of that the battery life on this handset it has a actually pretty big battery of five thousand milliamp hour battery and the battery life that I was getting was actually really good easily about eight nine hours of SOP with about almost two to three days between charges for example let's look at the current

Battery stats on this one if I go over here battery start but right now still about 28% battery life is left if I go to the battery usage start and if you notice let it slow and you can see it's off the charger for three days to watch but again guys this is with the single cell I remove the second SEM so if it's duals and remove about half a day worth of battery life but still as you can see the standby time is really good still has 28% and if you look at the screen I'm having about 6 hours 18 minutes of screen on time by the time it goes it's it's 28 so I should get about 8 or arts

In fact I'll shader as some of the screenshots that I have taken during last two weeks regarding the battery life and as you can see outstanding the battery life that I am getting on this one so in terms of battery life Xiaomi has done a great job again that mean Y is very aggressive in terms of battery optimization and that shows on this one so if a heavy user it will easily give you about one and a half days worth of battery life and if you're sort of a casual user expect about two to about two and a half days worth of battery

Life on this one regarding charging it has USB type C and D what charger is supplied on this one in fact Xiaomi has one more variant that is called the pro max that comes with a slightly faster char in fact guys I don't have the pro max with me and never got that unit because of this lock dance Korea issues it's exactly the same handset same chipset that same screen that one actually has slightly what do you say better faster charging 33 what faster stunning this one is restricted to 18 watt and the big difference is the camera setup is slightly different on

That would he say higher end of variant that has a 64 megapixel camera sensor whereas this one is having that forty eight megapixel camera sensor I won't get in into too much about the camera because I've already posted a dedicated video that a lot of camera samples I can watch that for more info and leave a card over here I would say camera is actually pretty decent considering the price point of 13,000 I won't complain too much but and so video I would say if the lighting is not good the video performance was a little bit disappointing again regarding gaming

Also I didn't do a lot of gaming I don't do a lot of gaming I but I did play Call of Duty for about 15 minutes to matches approximately and it played fine if you want to know more about gaming continuous gaming for hours and asked again check out other youtube rivers who play and run of games i just don't play a lot of gameplay dead test Call of Duty and it played fine the Snapdragon 720 G will handle gaming without any issues now let's move to the cons of this one and again I found something peculiar cons and the first thing is that regarding the proximity sensor while you

Are taking calls the proximity sensor is there on this handset but what I noticed is that about 15 to 20 percent of the time when you're taking calls like this the proximity sensor was a little bit here and it when I was taking calls the flashlight was getting activated other icons the quick icons were getting activated on that so that is something that I've noticed Allen even when I gave this phone for some calls for death that my wife had to take I again noticed that issue so I feel the proximity sensor is not well calibrated on this and even after the latest OTA update I'm still

Having the issue so I don't know if it's a hardware issue or the calibration has not done well but about 15 to 20 percent of the time I did have an issue with the proximity sensor now moving to another thing is that again it runs on me wife and you'll get the latest version of me why that's not a problem with this one as I've probably again I did finally get ot update what's running on me while 11 on this one and I did get it update which is the latest one I got it later in fact I got it many users got this earlier about 20 days ago but I just got it about 4 days

Ago and after updating this device the very next day I actually don't have any issues prior to that update on this way this device completely froze after about seven eight hours of the update just randomly I was just using a regular app and it completely forced and I had to force restart so again there are some bugs so again you got to be careful but again this happened about three days ago but again from the past three days I'm using this device it ain't freeze so I couldn't recreate that issue so might be a bug so again be careful with that and again I would say as it's me you I don't

Jump with the latest update just wait for the update and see what other users are saying if it's stable then only update and again I don't like the fact that the version of me UI that Xiaomi is using on this one as this is sort of their value oriented phone you tend to get shitty stuff like this a lot unnecessary notifications unnecessary stuff like this shady videos and the stuff like this again you can disable a lot of things aren't disabled a lot of things because I was also getting a lot of notifications here for videos and stuff and if you're using this device I

Would say stay away from the me as for example like the me browser me video and stuff if you use that you will get unnecessary notifications quite a bit stick to Google Apps but again the thing I have noticed to start in the cheaper variants of the xiaomi phone redmi phones they tend to push out a lot of unnecessary shady stuff which is irritating in fact because I saw like this if I go you get some random stuff right not showing it was showing some very shitty stuff initially just out of the blue and this is the reason I'm reluctant to actually recommend this

Device to elders or young people because my mistake if you just set up the phone also you can get some really shady stuff so that is something that me really needs to stop because what I have notices in xiaomi redmi higher-end phones you simply don't get this for example about one and a half months ago I reviewed even the poco x2 that I never got shady stuff or a shady video recommendation so like this what I'm seeing on this device and even the slightly higher redmi variant so it looks like if the redmi phone is on the budget range you have to accept the

Shady stuff like this shady ads shady videos so that is something that i really do not like and xiaomi really needs to stop this that is the only thing and that because of that I simply personally can't recommend this device to elders or youngsters because I'm not sure they might see some shady stuff like this so that is the big problem that I have the distance apart from that in terms of hardware I really love what Xiaomi is doing apart from that proximity sensor issue that I'm facing the hardware is good you're getting a lot of hardware the Snapdragon 720 GSoC

The camera is also pretty decent apart from the video so overall and the phone is also very stylish yes it's a fingerprint magnet if you don't use the case but most of you will be using it to the case so that's fine and a small thing that I've noticed is that if you notice the back the camera just Jets out and actually it is resting on that camera so again if you are a person who likes you type like this you have to be careful so the back is completely resting on it the samurais I would say I like what Xiaomi has done in terms of hardware the hardware that you're

Getting for 13,000 is actually really good the Snapdragon 720 G processor is very very capable the battery life is amazing so overall I am liking the for the price one but the thing that I do not like is the version of me why that is being used on this one and specifically the kind of content it tries to push it to you if that can be stopped or if you are a sort of advance user who knows how to disable these things inside the settings or it's sort of advanced user who can install custom ROM then I would say this is a device anyways guys that's it for now for the
