Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max Review


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is a good option if you’re looking for a decent mid-range device. It has a big screen and the latest Snapdragon 720G processor.

On the camera front, it sports a quad set of cameras at the back. It includes a 64-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has a 6.67-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution and 2.5D curved glass. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio, 450 nits brightness, and a 1242:1 contrast ratio.

The IPS LCD panel does an excellent job of displaying sharp, vivid colors in most circumstances. However, it doesn’t offer a high refresh rate like the POCO X2 and realme 6 Pro.

Overall, the display is quite decent for the price and will get the job done for most users, but the lack of a high refresh rate will likely put it on the back foot compared to its stablemate and competitor. It will also limit the phone’s gaming performance.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max features a powerful 64-megapixel camera. This is a big step from the 48-megapixel primary camera on the regular Note 9 Pro.

It also gets a new 32-megapixel selfie cam. The new sensor can see more details, resulting in better selfies.

Regarding the video, the Max also captures better colors and details than the Note 9 Pro. The dynamic range is much more comprehensive, which helps capture more vibrant colors and better-defined detail.

Both the phones sport a 6.67-inch LCD DotDisplay and are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G processor. They’re splash-proof and feature a fingerprint scanner on the back. They can be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max offers excellent performance thanks to the powerful Octa-Core Snapdragon 720G processor. It is also packed with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

It packs in a 6.67-inch display on the front with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen has a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera and delivers punchy colors.

It has a quad set of rear cameras and a dedicated 5MP macro sensor to capture fine details in close-up shots. It also features AI scene detection, panorama mode, and night mode.


The battery of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is the biggest in the company’s history, a massive 5020mAh unit that lasts for days on average use. It’s also the first phone in its price range to offer 33W fast charging.

While there’s no denying that this is an excellent value device with its premium design, snazzy build, and class-leading cameras, other devices can offer better value for money in this category. The Realme 6 offers a higher refresh rate display, 5G support, and a 4500mAh battery for Rs 13,999, while the POCO M3 Pro delivers similar features at a lower price point.


The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max focuses more on value for money. It combines a Snapdragon 720G chipset with an excellent design and good optics to create a compelling package for anyone who doesn’t want to spend too much.

It costs Rs 13,999 ($190) for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and goes up to Rs 16,999 ($232) for the 6GB/128GB version. It’s not the cheapest phone in its class, but it’s still much more affordable than the similarly specced realme 6.
