As every year around this time, Xiaomi has put on the market the mobile phone with which it hopes to sweep the competition throughout the year. This is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S, the heir to the best-selling Redmi Note 8.
Its technical specifications are quite cutting-edge, especially if we consider that Redmi Note 9S launch price is € 229, the country where you can already buy it.
Practically copies almost all the features of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, although in this case, the launch price is lower, a price that will surely go down little by little, as usually happens.
There are many reasons why this model of Xiaomi will be considered one of the best cheap mobile phones of 2020, starting with the power of the features and the components it equips.
Below we review the reasons why you should value your purchase if you are looking for a mobile and do not handle a lot of budgets.
Very tight price of Redmi Note 9S compared to similar alternatives
First of all, we must assess what is undoubtedly the main reason to buy the Redmi Note 9S: its price. If we compare it for example with the one that has the Redmi Note 8 Pro, of € 209 right now, it clearly wins.
It is a more recent launch mobile, with the latest version of Android already installed and that has, among other things, more battery capacity. Let’s say that in general terms it is one step up compared to the Redmi Note 8.
It is evident that over the months its price will go down, probably staying at the € 160 that the Redmi Note 8 costs now, although for that there is still a long way to go and if you need a mobile for now, surely you will not regret paying the 229 € that it costs.
It is for sale on Amazon, although AliExpress Plaza is currently selling the 128GB version in Spain, and it does so at a price of US $250.80.
Snapdragon 712G as a processor: more midrange than input range
In this year 2020, it seems that Xiaomi will make the definitive leap in terms of processing power in the Redmi range. The appetizer is that this phone is no longer comes with a Snapdragon 600 but with one from the 700 lines.
Specifically, it is the Snapdragon 712G, a chip that is well ahead of those we saw in the last generation, although without considering it as high-end. Without a doubt, fluency is one of its strengths, and it is that you can run any Android app without too many problems.
You can even play most Android games since the GPU is also much better.
Another aspect in which the improvement of the processor affects is in battery consumption, which will surely be more efficient this year.
5,020 mAh battery and with fast charge
We have already mentioned several times that one of the advantages of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S is its battery, which slightly exceeds 5,000 mAh of capacity, something that will surely become habitual in the coming years.
For now, almost all brands prefer to stay at 4,000 mAh, which is quite a respectable figure. The jump that Xiaomi has taken will result in greater autonomy.
In addition, this 5,020 mAh of capacity and charger with fast charging. Which reaches 18W of power thanks to the charger that already included in the pack.
Almost everything essential in connectivity
The connectivity of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S is another key point. And that is in the previous generation you had to pay a plus to get the Redmi Note 8T. If you want mobile payments, something more expensive than its younger brother.
This time history repeats itself again, and it is that the Note 9S does not have an NFC chip, but they do have Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi AC, things that little by little are becoming essential even in the cheapest mobiles.
The quad rear camera of Redmi Note 9S
If we compare the phones that have a price similar to the € 229 that it costs in Spain, there are few that offer the photographic quality of this level, at least on paper.
This smartphone comes with a set of four cameras, although as always happens. Each lens will be dedicated to a specific function: the main lens, a depth sensor, one for the macro, and a wide-angle.
All this with up to 48 Mpx resolution, although we already know that the size of the photo does not have to mean a higher quality since this largely depends on the processing done through software.
