Reviews for the realme 9 4G

80% realme 9 4G review: Midranger with 108MP camera and 90Hz screen
Source: Root Nation English EN→zh-CN
The realme 9 4G fits perfectly into the series and is not much inferior to the more advanced Pro versions. It has the same quality Super AMOLED with a 90Hz refresh rate as the realme 9 Pro+. A good main camera that can compete with the 9 Pro. In addition, it boasts excellent battery life. But the performance of the smartphone is average for its class, and this is probably its main drawback. There is also no stereo sound and very limited video recording capabilities.

72% Realme 9 review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
Arguably, the Realme 9 is one of the sensible options in the family as it runs overall balanced hardware while being one of the cheapest of the bunch. It's only about €20 more expensive than the Realme 9 5G and 9 Pro. Its bright OLED panel, long battery life and somewhat decent camera performance, thanks to the 108MP main sensor, make a pretty strong case. However, the lack of NFC, 5G connectivity and the underpowered Snapdragon 680 will most likely steer away some potential buyers, and the competition can accommodate those needs while matching the Realme 9 4G's feature set and adding a set of stereo speakers as well as some sort of ingress protection.

The Realme 9 delivers in many key areas, offering good photography results for the price, great battery life, and an excellent screen, too. That may well be enough to satisfy many potential buyers, but don’t ignore the downsides to this device. The first is the lack of 5G, and related to that, the handset’s generally underwhelming performance. What’s more, the design of this handset is also a bit on the lurid side. Still, if you can live with these flaws (for instance, if you’re not a keen mobile gamer), and you’re short on bundles of cash to fling around, then this phone is certainly worthy of your consideration.

Realme 9 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
Both Realme 9 5G and Realme 9 5G India are pretty average smartphones in the mid-range segment. Moreover, there are tons of devices that overshadow this phone. But, if you are looking for an adequate deal, the Realme 9 5G can be considered a good choice as you get a bigger battery, decent performance, and features. But if you look at the downsides, the phone lacks an AMOLED panel, Glass protection, and an average camera. In that situation, if you desire an AMOLED display experience, you can check out the recent release of the Poco M4 Pro smartphone. But if you are in search of something that gives all-rounder features and specs, you should definitely check the Samsung Galaxy F23, however, the final decision depends on your requirement.

Realme 9 4G Gaming Review - A Camera Phone That Can Game
Source: Manila Shaker English
Having a 4G smartphone in 2022 is quite rare, especially for well-known brands, since 5G is starting to become the standard of smartphones. Well, realme a few months back announced the realme 9 series, and put out some impressive smartphones like the realme 9 Pro, 9 Pro Plus, and the 9i. Each one of them sports 5G connectivity. Well, the realme 9 doesn't; it still carries the 4G connectivity, but in exchange are jam-packed features. It is a camera phone, but can it handle the games that we usually play?

70% Realme 9 4G review
Source: Techradar English EN→zh-CN
At this stage in the Realme story, we pretty much know what to expect from the brand: solid, unspectacular, good value smartphones, and quite a lot of them. The Realme 9 is one of the latest to arrive, and it offers some appealing features for the very reasonable price of £249 in the UK. It's interesting to compare the phone we're reviewing here directly with the Realme 9 5G – which, as the name suggests, adds 5G. The standard Realme 9 sticks with 4G, although it does have a faster wired charging rate and an OLED rather than an LCD screen. It seems that Realme is trying to cover as many bases as possible. Even just within the current Realme range, the Realme 9 risks getting lost in the noise, and that's before you've weighed it against other smartphones around this price point, like the Oppo A74 5G and the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G. It's a tough section of the market to carve out space in and you could argue that the Realme 9 doesn't quite do enough.

realme 9 4G Review Philippines: In a Tight Spot
Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
Among all of the realme 9 variants available in the Philippines, the realme 9 4G is the strangest variant in the lineup. Despite offering a 90hz AMOLED display and a 108-megapixel main rear camera, the realme 9 Pro 5G is a better deal for only a few thousand pesos more with 5G connectivity.

Despite the Realme 9 4G’s lacklustre performance, the rest of the package goes a long way to make up for these shortcomings. The AMOLED display is sharp and suitably slick, the main camera is astonishing for the price and the battery life is very nearly unbeatable. Sure, there are some handsets that are better suited to mobile gaming, with some that support 5G, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a phone that offers quite as many positives as the Realme 9 4G squeezes in for this price.

Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
The arrival of the realme 9 4G in the Philippines is interesting, as it aims to make up for some of the realme 9i’s shortcomings with the rear cameras and display. Given that it slots in between the realme 9i and 9 Pro, it remains to be seen how the brand will price the 9 4G to make it competitive against a stacked budget mid-range segment here in the Philippines.

79% Realme 9 Review: Premium Looks, Affordable Price
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English EN→zh-CN
Okay, that brings to me the end of this review. So… do I love the Realme 9? Well, I really appreciate what the company has done with the look and feel of the phone. Despite being a budget device, it has a touch of elegance that you won’t find in many of the competition. It feels good on hand and then you get this beautiful Super AMOLED screen with a built-in fingerprint reader too. And other aspects like cameras and gaming could’ve been a lot better too. So if you don’t care about aesthetics, you can find better all-rounder phones like the POCO X4 Pro 5G (or Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G in Nepal) by extending your budget a little. It offers a much better multimedia experience, as well as superior performance and everything else. However, if raw power is all you crave, then last year’s POCO X3 Pro is still well worth the money.

80% Realme 9 review: Feature-packed but no 5G
Source: Stuff TV English EN→zh-CN
The Realme 9 is a good £249 phone that’s held back from real greatness by a lack of 5G, mediocre performance, and fairly weak low light camera capability. What makes the phone good? Its screen is pretty much best in class for a compact, low-cost phone. The under-display fingerprint scanner is responsive, and it’s loaded with storage and RAM. The main camera is also great when lighting is on its side. It also adds some standout style choices – you can be the judge of whether they’re good or bad – and excellent battery life to the mix. Movie watchers, file hoarders, and anyone after good battery life or a standout screen can confidently pick one up. The Realme 9 definitely isn’t for gamers or low light photographers. If you can justify spending a bit more, check out the pricier Realme 9 Pro+ if you want a near-flagship camera experience on a budget. Last year’s Realme 8 may be a less feature-rich phone, but its lower price and superior gaming performance could woo gamers. Alternatively, the Poco X4 5G is chunkier and a bit pricier, but offers better gaming performance and packs faster charging,

An impressive display, battery life and cameras make the Realme 9 a solid budget option. But if great performance is a priority for you, your money will be better spent elsewhere.

75% Realme 9 review: Good enough doesn’t make the cut
Source: Android Police English EN→zh-CN
Maybe. Compared to its 5G sibling, the Realme 9 4G adds a nice OLED panel, an in-display fingerprint reader, Android 12, and a faster 33W charger. These are some solid reasons to get the 4G model, especially considering it costs just ₹500 (~$7) more and 5G connectivity is nowhere near fruition in India. However, all the other aspects of the phone are holding it back. The lack of a stereo speaker pair already puts it behind the competition, and Realme’s decision to use a middling processor (when its own 9 Pro uses a beefier chip for the same price) doesn’t seem right. While giving buyers a lot of options makes sense, Realme has to draw the line somewhere. In the current state, there are multiple phones from the company in the sub-₹20,000 segment, and the Realme 9 4G is probably the most confused of them all. It’s neither fully meant for entertainment (without stereo speakers) nor is it good for gaming (thanks to the processor), and above all, the low-light camera performance is among the weakest on any phone of this price.

Other than the above, the realme 9 comes with other useful features. This includes the under-display fingerprint sensor, 33W fast charging, microSD card support (up to 256GB), and more. Overall, it's a pretty good deal at RM899 for the 6GB variant or RM999 for the 8GB variant. If you need an affordable mid-ranger that looks good and has a high pixel count camera, you might want to check this one out. If you want to know more, do visit the official realme website.

Realme 9 Review: Good "All-in-One" recipe but lacks excitement
Source: The Times of India English EN→zh-CN
Verizon has come up with an exciting offer for iPhone 13. At present, the iPhone 13 costs $699. Verizon is offering a flat discount of $439 on the smartphone to bring the price down to $260. That in itself is a great offer but Verizon takes it to the next level by including a zero down payment EMI (easy monthly installment) where the user only needs to pay $10 per month for the 128GB variant. There are only two rules to avail the Green iPhone 13 price cut offer. The interested shopper will have to buy a new line of Verizon and get an unlimited plan on it. Under this offer, users will have to stay with the Verizon plan starting $10 for 36 months straight. If you want a higher storage variant, they are also available in the iPhone 13 price cut offer. You can get the 256GB variant at a cost of $12.77 per month and the 512GB variant is available at $18.33 per month. If the green color does not fascinate you, all the other colorways are also available in this limited time deal.

70% Realme 9 4G review: a reasonably good choice in the affordable segment
Source: 91mobiles English EN→zh-CN
I really think that the Realme 9 would have made more sense if the 5G version’s Dimensity 810 SoC could have made its way to the former and removed the need for the latter entirely. Everything that the Realme 9 5G lacks is fulfilled by the regular Realme 9’s specs. There is a much better camera involved, an AMOLED panel that has a jittery 90Hz refresh rate but much better colour reproduction. The charging speeds are faster and authentication is done with a trusty in-display fingerprint sensor. Even on the software side, the Realme 9 comes with Android 12 out of the box while the 5G model is still on the previous version. If only the Realme 9’s performance was better, the device would have been surely a top recommendation in my book. Users looking for a good gaming experience on a budget can certainly do with better devices in the same price range like the Samsung Galaxy F23 (review) or the iQOO Z6 (review). That said, the new Realme 9 does come across as a compelling option that gets a lot of things right.

realme 9 Hands-On and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English EN→zh-CN
Surprisingly, it runs on the Android 12 operating system with realme’s latest UI, the realme UI 3.0. The realme UI 3.0 was released a few months ago and a handful of realme smartphones have already received the update, thankfully realme has put the latest UI on the realme 9 whilst the realme 9 5G variants are still on the older 2.0 version. Moving to its battery, the smartphone packs a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging support. The price for the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant starts at ₹17,999 and the price for its 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant is ₹18,999. What we like about the phone is its 90 Hz Super AMOLED, its light-weight and slim form factor, 108 MP camera, and a decent performing Snapdragon chip. You can grab the realme 9 using an ongoing discount of a flat ₹2,000, the sale starts on 12th April 2022 on Flipkart and realme.com.
