With the Redmi Note 9S, Xiaomi retains the same value for money as its big brother, but in a lower bracket: less than 250 euros. To keep up with this price, the brand had to make some technical concessions, but they were carefully chosen to keep a smooth smartphone that can meet most uses.

In the photo, the Redmi Note 9S uses the same four-sensor configuration. On the other hand, the main sensor is a little less well defined with 48 megapixels instead of 64. It will therefore be a little less good, but in use the difference remains slim. Finally, you keep the same 5020 mAh battery and therefore the same autonomy. Fast charging, on the other hand, is a little less lively, with 18W instead of 30.
