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 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: 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: You'd be silly not to buy one

 

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.

Xiaomi Mi 9 review

 

No gimmicks, just great hardware - the Mi 9 is Xiaomi all grown up

Versatile triple-lens camera takes great photos ; Snapdragon 855 delivers all the oomph you need ; Flagship features at a sensible price

A few missing features that would have taken it from good to great ; Software still a bit cumbersome

Xiaomi keeps things simple, and the Mi 9 is all the better for it, if not quite perfect. This might not be a UK household name - but phones like this could turn that around

Hands on: Xiaomi Mi 9 review

 

Xiaomi's latest attempt to conquer the West

Great photography ; Lightweight feel ; Reasonable price

Slow user interface ; Camera felt a little slow

The Mi 9's camera felt adaptive and powerful – it's just a shame the rest of the device felt comparatively slow.

Xiaomi Mi 9 review: Waving the flag for the next generation of smartphones

 

Xiaomi's Mi 9 is the first smartphone we've tested that's powered by a Snapdragon 855, but is this a worthwhile upgrade?

Incredibly well-priced ; Snapdragon 855 offers significant performance improvements ; Battery life is superb

None whatsoever

Indeed, Xiaomi’s Mi 9 represents the very pinnacle of smartphone technology, and I’m simply astounded that it does things this well, while costing so little in return. The Mi 9 is yet another five-star smartphone from Xiaomi, and It certainly doesn’t...

The best phone you'll find under £500. Xiaomi's Mi 9 is simply unbeatable at this price, and here's why.
