It is certainly a combination of shape and function for design, but a few things are lacking. It’s quite a heavy smartphone. It has a large display, which is relatively large, so expect your pants to have a bulge. The rear panel, however, has 3D curved gradient glass which, of course, looks cool.
Xiaomi also offers the Carbon Black and Pearl White models in addition to the Flame Red and Glacier Blue. Also, note that there is no fingerprint scanner here since it’s equipped with an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
Compared to last year’s Poco F1, Xiaomi has notched up its game. Super AMOLED 6.39-inches edge screen has a screen-to-body ratio of around 86% and is far better than the old flagships offered by Xiaomi. With Full HD+ resolution, Mi 9T Pro’s display is loaded with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
It theoretically provides endless contrast as an AMOLED panel that makes the dark mode look attractive on a smartphone. The display is bright and shiny and sharp as much as the best available options in this price range. The panel under the direct sunlight works perfect, and it’s comfortably legible. The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro supports HDR and DC Dimming contents as well.
On paper, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is pretty loaded – following the modern flagship trends, sporting a triple camera on its rear. Out of the three, there is a 48MP primary camera, partnered with a 13MP ultra-wide one and an 8MP telephoto camera. And on the front, on the other hand, it’s boasting a 20MP pop-up selfie snapper to assist you in videos and images.
The primary 48MP camera is as impressive as on Redmi Note 7 Pro with a dedicated mode just for a print on a billboard. Unfortunately, it lacks an Optical Image Stabilization or any form of electronic stabilization, but overall, it’s up to snuff in terms of performance as it captures bright and good images in most conditions.
Performance and Software:
In terms of performance, the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is hardly a matter of the complaint. The Snapdragon 855 which operates the handset is currently the best Qualcomm chipset and has a three-clusters architecture for anyone who doesn’t know yet. There is a 2.84GHz clocked extremely powerful cores with a tick of 2.41GHz followed by the four most powerful cores at 1.78GHz. With the best of Qualcomm SoC, up to 8GB of RAM and fast UFS 2.1 storage (up to 256 GB), it is super-fast and can handle any app or game.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is equipped with a 4000mAh non-removable battery. With casual use, it can easily last throughout a day without even running short on power. But with more demanding use such as playing games and working on multiple apps simultaneously, it depletes fast.
All in all, you will be happy with the power and in case you run out of juice, Quick Charge 4+ feature has got you covered.
