The Redmi 9T doesn’t really stand out on the front. The phone has a 6.53” FHD+ Dot Drop display, which looks just like any other device at that price range. But things get a lot better with the colorful back cover of the phone. All four color options are bright and are a change from the usual gray, black, or dark blue color options we see on phones today. 

The phone also has the Redmi branding on the bottom left. The branding is quite large but subtle since there is a lighter tone. It’s kind of like the Poco branding on the Poco X3 but the branding here is instead located a little bit to the left.


The Redmi 9T sits on the budget category at around 150 euros. This isn’t the cheapest phone ever but it sits at a very low price. What’s really good is that it features things such as a 48 MP main camera and a 6000mAh high-capacity battery.
