It's okay, but it could be better

Battery

The energy is provided by a 5000 mAh battery. And it can work for a relatively long time away from the charger - in typical use, I easily achieved two days of work. Here are the results of battery benchmarks and own measurements:

  • working time with the screen on (YouTube, 1 SIM card, active Wi-Fi module, 50% screen brightness, minimum sound level) - over 17 hours,
  • PC Mark battery test result - 17 hours and 14 minutes,
  • Geekbench result (full discharge, dim screen) - 12020 points, discharge after 20 hours and 2 minutes,
  • an hour of video streaming (Chrome, 1 SIM card, active Wi-Fi module, 50% screen brightness) - 9% less battery,
  • an hour of playing videos from the phone's memory (airplane mode, pre-installed video player, 50% screen brightness) - 8% less battery,
  • half an hour of using online navigation - 5%,
  • half an hour of playing Real Racing 3 - 7% battery less,
  • 8 hours in standby mode - 2% battery less.


The smartphone supports charging up to 18 W, so it will not use the full potential of the charger added in the set. So what is the point of its presence in the sales kit? But let's abandon this topic, you can finally charge other devices with it. So how long will it take to charge the cell with the included accessories? After 30 minutes it is 28%, after an hour - 66%, and after 90 minutes - 90%. The entire process of charging a flat battery to 100% takes about 2 hours. The smartphone does not support wireless charging.

Summary

Redmi Note 9T is a decent model, but it doesn't get too much excitement. First of all, RAM - models costing less than 200 euros are equipped with 4 GB of RAM, after exceeding this price threshold, I would expect 6 gigabytes. Secondly, the cameras - the 48-megapixel main camera will not disappoint, but the lack of an ultra-wide angle lens is a big disappointment for me. Third, charging that takes a long time. Fourth, the price. The reviewed model costs 269 euros and it is not the most profitable model in its segment. And the competition is awake - I mean, first of all, the Realme brand and the recently reviewed Realme 7 5G model, which offers more RAM, a screen with high refresh rate and a half-shorter loading time - and is much cheaper. Moreover, you can consider other models from the Xiaomi offer here, as well as models from the Moto G series.
