Before You Buy - Complete Review/Guide to Redmi 9A (Global) PROS & CONS

The new Redmi 9A was released and available in July 2020. It is one of the Redmi Note 9 Series which Include Redmi 9C, Redmi 9, Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9S and the almighty Redmi Note 9 Pro.

The Redmi 9A which is our main focus today is a lower end phone. As we all know with the trend of Xaiomi Redmi Series, they try their best is targeting the Low end users, Mid-range users and even the mid-range flagship users but the xaiomi MI series target mostly the Flagship users.

What’s it with this phone? And how does this device relates and performs when it is compared with others? That is yet to be seen.



Xiaomi recently has been using large screens on this display since the advent of redmi Note 7 series and the trend still continues with this device. It carries a huge 6.53 inch display the same screen size found in Redmi Note 8 Pro. It is an HD IPS LCD capacitive display with a 720 by 1600 pixels. This device as advertised carries almost 400 nits typ. Brightness, meaning you should not worry using this device in the sun as it would be able to light up enough for efficient tasking. Another feature you will find on the screen is a dot drop notch cut out for the front facing camera.  

Personally I think this display isn’t bad especially those who are large screen freaks. Meaning your screen should be large enough to conveniently watch movies and whatever on your screen.



Most importantly I guess you would be curious to know what kind of chipset is imbedded into this device. Well it is a Mediatek Helio G25 (12nm) octa-core processor. This processor is good enough for light usage such as browsing the web, using social media apps like facebook, whatsapp, instagram, twitter etc. this device would also be able to play light games which are less graphics demanding such as temple run, Wott, Zuma Revenge, Snooker, Light football or racing games like FTS football games, Temple Run games etc. the point am making here is , if you decided to go for this device it should be for normal tasking and if you are a heavy user, you can opt for higher brands like Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9S, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8 etc.



The OS preinstalled on this device out of the box is the Android 10 with the all New MIUI 12. In fact this device was launched with this OS preinstalled. You should know that MIUI OS is one of the best OS globally due to its perfect optimization and intuitiveness. As a user MIUI is one of its kind.


This device functionality is attached with a 32GB ROM 3GB RAM and a 32GB ROM 2GB RAM variant. With this memory configuration there should not be lagging issues with this device as it has enough to function with in terms of Ram and Storage capability. Another thing you would enjoy with this device is an option for a dedicated SD card slot. So in case you are not comfortable with the storage you can get for yourself an SD card.



The main camera of this device is a single 13Mp camera with a 5MP front facing camera. I was able to use this device for some camera light actions and really it did not disappoint. It might interest you to know that the main camera performance really outperforms other devices of different brands using this same camera mega pixels.



This device has a Bluetooth 5.0 out of the box with a proximity sensor and FM radio with the normal micro USB port. Although it has no finger print sensor but there are other security measures such as password, pattern and pin.

The protection on this device is a shiny colourful glassy looking device with a premium feel on the hand. Impressive is the only language to be ascribe to this device’s design language.



I am really impress with all Redmi Note 9 Series as they all carries a battery capacity of nothing less a 5000mAh battery which this device is carrying. This device supports a 10W charging speed. Meaning it could take about 2 hours to fully charge from 0-100% not bad right?

The battery found on this device should be sufficient enough for at least a 3-4 days standby, I really don’t think anyone would complain of battery because of the huge battery capacity placed into this device.



The list of this device pricing in Nigeria is a s follows:

The 32GB ROM 2GB RAM variant is currently selling at N40, 000

 The 32GB ROM 3GB RAM variant is currently selling at N44, 000

To be honest I think this price is alright considering the build quality, battery capacity, storage, camera and most importantly the processor of this device. Other devices with a lesser processors on infinix, tecno and Itel are selling way more than this.

You can purchase it from reliable online platform like from Jumia Here and Konga Here   those are the places WHERE TO BUY In Nigeria.

In all this device is a good buy for light users, wives, kids etc because it will serve in its capacity perfectly.
