Xiaomi Mi 9T/Redmi K20 review

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hey what's up guys the red make a twenty is part of a brand new mid-range lineup by Xiaomi and globally is called the me ninety they'll get it confused with the me nine which came out just a few months ago as a mid-range rather than a flagship what does this one bring to the table and will for GSM marina and let's find out in our four of you like many premium phones these days the shell me me 90 is made from glass with an aluminum frame we light our carbon black model which has a striped pattern lurking beneath the surface but the dazzling glacier blue is also quite

Striking the glass back is curved and this tapered edges give the phone an elegant look the accents on the camera and the power button are a nice touch too the phone is big and slippery and like the regular me 9 there is no waterproofing here be careful when you're out by the pool this summer one of the mean 90 is special features this is motorized pop-up selfie cam unlike other similar pop-up modules we've seen this one is accented with eye catching LED strips as if we needed more reasons to play around with it

We're always wary of movable parts as these may be easier to break but Xiaomi promises that the mechanism will survive at least 300,000 actuations and if you drop the phone with a selfie cam out it'll automatically retract to try and protect itself as a result of the hideaway selfie camera the mean 90 has a notch free edge to edge display it's a brilliant six point four inch AMOLED with a tall aspect ratio and a 1080p resolution content looks great on this screen with this deep AMOLED blacks and a sharp 403 PPI it supports HDR content too and colors can be quite

Accurate based on your color settings lik most amyloids this one has support for an always-on display for your time and notifications and it has various themes you can choose from too beneath the screen is one of the fastest under display fingerprint readers I've ever used unlocking is a breeze a lot more responsive than plenty of other phones we've seen lately if you want face unlock is another option though it does require you to swipe on the screen so it's not as fast and this feature may not be available in all regions alongside all the cutting-edge features

The me 90 still brings a regular 3.5 millimeter Jack and FM radio audio through headphones has very good loudness but we wish the stereo separation was better the loudspeaker is on the bottom next to the USBC port is scored a very good mark and a loudness tests sound quality is also very good though there is some distortion in the higher registers at max volume the me 90 runs the latest me you i over entered 9 pi it brings quite a few customizations over vanilla Android one of the biggest differences is that there's no app drawer here all

Of your apps will be kept on the home screen and the test switcher is organized vertically in two rows we feel lucky that the apps that came pre-installed didn't have any ads or banners in them some regions will get these by default and you'll have to turn them off manually you can customize your home screen with different themes but they're only available if you set your phone to a supported region like India for storage you can opt for 64 or 128 gigs built-in and sadly that's it there is no way to expand it via microSD at the heart of the Xiaomi me 90 is the

Most powerful mid-range chipset from Qualcomm the Snapdragon 730 along with 6 gigs of ram in benchmarks had tops the charts against the competition and we didn't encounter any overheating or throttling the flagship Snapdragon a 55 will still beat it in graphics performance but you won't have any problems playing the latest games here the mid-nineties 4000 million power battery is about 20% larger than the one inside the me 9 and a posted an excellent endurance rating of a hundred hours and our proprietary tests it charges really fast – with this 18 watt

Charger we were able to go from 0 to 45 percent charge in half an hour on the back of the me 90 there's a triple camera setup we have a 48 megapixel main camera the quad bear filter an 8 megapixel telephoto cam and a 13 megapixel ultra wide cam none of these have oh is the main cameras images are 12 megapixels by default we were really impressed by the quality they have excellent detail great contrast true to life colors and a wide dynamic range if you want you can also shoot in 48 megapixel resolution it isn't really worth the extra storage space to take up

There isn't that much more detail when using the telephoto camera zoomed images look great with plenty of detail somewhere a bit noisier than the photos from the main cast but this is one of the better telephoto shooters out there portraits are taken with a telephoto cam – and taking the best shot requires plenty of light if you get it right the portraits are quite nice and detailed with excellent subject separation and convincing D focusing now onto the ultra wide-angle camera quality is a bit lower than the other two but the colors are still nice and noise

Levels are low if you turn off the automatic distortion correction you get a sharper image at the expense of some curvature at the edges of the frame now let's move on to low-light photography regular shots from the main camera turn out just okay the lack of all is restricts the shutter speed so exposure is darker than we'd like the phone must use higher ISO and then reduces the noise with aggressive noise reduction which takes its toll on the level of detail if you turn on the dedicated night mode shots take a bit longer but it is worth it you get a proper exposure

And subjects look a bit more detailed they are still rather soft though if you want to zoom at night you won't be shooting through the telephoto cam instead you get a digitally cropped and zoomed photo from the main camp nighttime photos from the ultra wide-angle camera aren't very good due to the aggressive noise reduction dark exposure overall softness and lack of detail and you can't use night mode with this camera let's talk about the selfies the motorized camera has fixed focus but if you get the focus distance right shots turn out excellent they have more

Than enough detail nice colors and good sharpness dynamic range isn't impressive but auto HDR does improve things the me 90 can capture videos in up to 4k at 30fps and they have electronic stabilization 4k videos from the main camera are sharp and detailed there's low noise nice color rendition and wide dynamic range the ultra wide-angle 4k videos are softer than the regular ones and less detailed their colour rendition is oversaturated and the dynamic range is narrower if you wanted to take a video with the telephoto cam sadly it is impossible zoomed videos are just a

Digital crop from the output of the main cam overall the cameras of the me 90 are surprisingly excellent during the day at night don't expect a lot and better stick to night mode so that's the Xiaomi me 90 or red make a 20 almost every feature is a win here from the knotch free AMOLED screen is a lightning-fast under display fingerprint reader the solid battery life fast charging great cameras killer chipset and of course that pop-up selfie cam you can show off to your friends as far as downsides the cameras aren't that great at nighttime

Shooting but they're all right and your storage is an expandable here but to be honest there isn't a lot to complain about so overall the mean 90 is a feature pack upper mid-range device that a lot of people would be happy with it brings great value and definitely earns our recommendation thanks for watching guys and see you on the next one
