The Mi 9 is the latest and greatest flagship phone by Xiaomi. Xiaomi has created a beautiful phone with great specs for a great price.
It is the worlds first phone with the new Snapdragon 855 chip but without any 5G support. It has four 2.84 GHz Kryo 485 Gold & four 1.7 GHz Kryo 485 Silver cores.
Xiaomi has implemented the same gradient finish to the back similar to note 7 creating a beautiful pattern to the back.
The Mi 9 is also the first Xiaomi flagship with triple cameras to the back. A 20 MP selfie camera is housed in a tear-drop shaped notch in the front. The triple cameras are a normal f/1.8, an ultrawide f/2.2 and a telephoto f/2.2 lens.
Xiaomi has used a 1080p display with a Super AMOLED panel which is good considering the small battery used in the Mi 9(3300). An in-display fingerprint scanner is also used with the AMOLED screen.
In terms of performance the MIUI is still one of the best skinned version of android in the market. The apps and games run smoothly and the software optimization is great. The cameras are also great as it provides various photography and videography features to the users. Xiaomi has also included fast wired and wireless charging.
The best and probably the greatest feature of the phone is undoubtedly its price, which is around $400.
