Xiaomi Mi 9 review: A worthy OnePlus rival


Xiaomi's latest flagship offers tremendous value for €449. It has the latest Snapdragon processor, a modern design with a teardrop-shaped notch, and a better-than-expected camera system. The company's Android skin, MIUI, is much-improved but still a...

Xiaomi Mi 9 Review


The Xiaomi Mi 9 is the company's first phone with the latest Snapdragon 855 and it's ready to go head to head with the big-name flagships of 2019. Xiaomi is upping the ante in almost every aspect, but it still had to make compromises to keep the price...

Premium build quality; A good combination of rear cameras; Fast performance; Super-competitive price

The fingerprint sensor is a bit unreliable; No IP water resistance rating; No face unlock; Subpar speakers; Battery life could be better

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: Fast processor, high-resolution camera, speedy wireless charging and more Review | ZDNet


This 6.39-inch Snapdragon 855-based smartphone delivers a great combination of features and performance, and is probably the best mid-priced handset available right now.

Excellent Snapdragon 855 performance ; 48MP main camera ; Fast 20W wireless charging ; Superb AMOLED screen ; IR blaster ; Plenty of on-board storage ; Great value for money

Average speaker ; Slippery glass back ; No MicroSD card slot

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: The latest flagship tech at a reasonable price


While it's lacking one or two premium features, the Xiaomi Mi 9 basically picks the best qualities of a 2019 flagship and sticks them into a well-made, affordable package. While it's lacking one or two premium features, the Xiaomi Mi 9 basically picks...

Solid camera with three lenses ; Snapdragon 855 is blazingly quick ; Great design ; Useful shortcut, gestures, and added button ; 20W charging

No expandable storage ; Concerning battery size (though it's not as bad as you might think) ; So-so display resolution

Xiaomi Mi 9: will you be mine? | AndroidPIT


The new star of the Chinese brand is a powerful mobile with an unbeatable price-to-performance ratio and a spectacular camera.

The real rival of the stars of Samsung, Apple and Huawei is here. No, it's no joke. For half the price (or even less) the Chinese brand once again proves that it is possible to make a smartphone with everything you need and a little more. And...

A top-range smartphone at a mid-range price — if you can find a way to buy it.

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: A bargain at £499 | Trusted Reviews


The Xiaomi Mi 9 is a high-end smartphone with a price that's half the competition. And it's up easily one of the smartphone bargains of 2019...

Versatile camera experience ; Superb value for money ; Fantastic performance ; Excellent screen

Slightly temperamental fingerprint sensor ; No IP certification

The price, performance and camera offered up by the Mi 9 should have purveyors of more costly rivals such as Apple, Huawei and Samsung worried.

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: a high performance flagship ready to take on the world


With top specs, a decent camera, and fine looks, the Mi 9 ticks a lot of boxes

Polished, premium design ; Stacks of power under the hood ; Camera quality impresses

Software isn't the best ; Screen sticks with 1080p ; No IP68 waterproofing

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: Still a super phone at a bargain price


Offering powerful hardware and a good camera experience, the Mi 9 is let down by the software, but at this price it's a compelling flagship phone

Value for money ; Great display with minimal notch ; Compelling camera experience ; Plenty of power

MIUI isn't a great experience ; Mono speaker ; No microSD card slot ; No IP rating

Offering, powerful hardware and a good camera experience, the Mi 9 is let down by the software experience, but at this price, it's one of the most compelling phones of 2019.
