Amazon is taking advantage of the “Mi Fan Festival”, a commercial operation supposed to speak to the faithful of the Chinese brand, to offer great discounts on Xiaomi smartphones, often already very well placed in terms of price. On this 2021 edition of the Xiaomi Mi Fan Festival, Amazon is playing the game well and presenting part of the manufacturer’s smartphone range with promotions of up to 30%. If you’ve been intending to buy a Xiaomi smartphone from the Redmi Note, Mi or Mi Note range, it’s probably a good time to take a look at Amazon’s offerings. This Xiaomi feat Amazon event will take place from April 6 to 16.
The top Xiaomi promos (and products)
As usual, not all promotions are created equal and this event dedicated to Xiaomi is no different from other shopping events already well established that usually punctuate the year. Used to scrutinizing products, promotions and other discounts, we have selected the real good deals that we really believe to be considered at Amazon for this Mi Fan Festival.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro 64 GB at 165.90 € instead of 249.90 (-34%)
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro 128GB at € 189.90 instead of 279.90 (-32%)
New reference on the entry level, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro perfectly represents the DNA of the Chinese firm. Offered at a very aggressive price, the Redmi Note 8 Pro makes very few concessions and combines premium technologies under its neatly finished chassis.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro is a good smartphone and without a doubt one of the best phones under $ 250. It displays very good performance and superb autonomy, criteria which often condition a purchase. Its photo part does it a lot of harm, however, especially since the problem is largely software. Nevertheless, the Redmi Note 8 Pro has no trouble facing the competition thanks to its mountain of qualities that make it a benchmark in the market.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T 5G at € 199.90 instead of 229.99 (-13%)
This version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T is compatible with 5G. And yet, it is displayed at less than 300 €. This was possible thanks to the integration of a MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor, an SoC engraved in 7 nm. Its technical sheet is completed by 4 GB of RAM, a 5000 mAh battery and a 6.53-inch Full HD + screen.
Drowned by an already extensive range, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 9T 5G has one strong argument against other models of the same price: it supports 5G for less than € 250. Although this is not yet standardized in our country, many users are already looking for such equipment. And let’s not forget that it can accommodate two 5G SIM cards. Overall satisfactory in several areas, the Redmi Note 9T is therefore aimed more at users focused on office use of their device (emails, internet, social networks). It will not satisfy fans of photography or video games who will have to turn to more suitable models, or even revise their budget upwards.
Xiaomi Redmi 9C NFC at € 99.90 instead of 129.90 (-23%)
Xiaomi redmi 9
Just in its price positioning on the entry level, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 has a new version including an NFC chip. An entry level that does “the job” as often with the Chinese manufacturer with an LCD screen, performance and correct finishes, autonomy slightly greater than direct competition and a fingerprint reader always appreciable in this price segment . At less than 130 euros, difficult to find better now.
The Redmi 9 offers a 6.53-inch LCD and Full HD + screen. An 8-megapixel selfie camera fits into a teardrop-shaped notch. At the rear, there is a quadruple sensor consisting of a 13-megapixel wide-angle (f / 2.2), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (118 °; f / 2.2), a macro of 5 megapixels (f / 2.4) and a 2 megapixel depth sensor (f / 2.4). Xiaomi turns to MediaTek and its SoC Helio G80 to liven up its new entry-level smartphone. This configuration is completed by 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of expandable internal memory. Like the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro, the Redmi 9 houses a 5020 mAh battery compatible with 18W fast charging. On the connectivity side, the Xiaomi terminal has a USB-C port and a 3.5 mm audio jack output. Finally, it supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro at 219 € instead of 239 (-8%)
Xiaomi masters its proposal on the entry-level market from start to finish. The Redmi Note 9 Pro shines with its neat and original design, its record autonomy and its very fast charging system. We appreciate its photo part which has improved since the last iteration of the Chinese firm.
With the Redmi Note 9 Pro Xiaomi once again demonstrates that consumers will find smartphones at the best techno-price ratio in its stores. Although imposing, the new kid shines with its neat and original design, its record autonomy and its very fast charging system. Above all, the photographic quality improves compared to its predecessor and the integration of NFC makes the daily experience (transport, payments) even more pleasant.
