80% Realme 9i review
Source: Tech Advisor English EN→zh-CN
The Realme 9i is a fantastic value for money Android phone which does the basics in style, offers great battery performance, and the cameras are pretty good too. It’s priced very nicely, looks good, is lightweight and is easy to use. It’s ideal for buyers on a budget, or people who want a reliable back-up phone. That said, the Redmi Note 11 is priced the same, offers a lot of the same features, and if you were to split hairs, you might be tempted by the fact that it has an AMOLED screen, whereas the Realme 9i has an LCD. The older Realme 8 also has AMOLED on offer. It’s also not a 5G phone, and while you shouldn’t necessarily expect 5G support for £200, the Poco M4 Pro 5G does include this, and it’s only about £40 more, so that might sway you. These are relatively small issues, though. The Realme 9i is an excellent budget phone that will more than satisfy most buyers after a cheap ‘n cheerful device.

realme 9i Review Philippines: Budget Battery Warrior
Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
The realme 9i feels more of an iterative upgrade to last year’s 8i. The 9i sacrifices gaming performance for vastly better battery life and small upgrades like stereo speakers and faster charging speeds. Its pricing does put it in a tight spot, especially since there are 5G phones that are available locally for roughly the same SRP.

Okay, so finally let’s talk about the price. The realme 9i is available for PHP 11,990. And on its own, we can say that it’s a good device for casual use, it has a better and updated chipset, namely the Snapdragon 680 in place of the Helio G96 in the 8i. However, the phone becomes harder to justify as a good update given how little it changes things from its predecessor. The realme 8i might still offer a little more value at the same price for many users.

Realme 9i Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The Realme 9i smartphone specs look a lot like the Realme 8i smartphone. Even the 8i has much better offerings than this one at almost the same pricing. In fact, Realme’s 9 & 9 Pro+ were much more price-effective. Although the prism design is alluring, Except for a strong build, battery & appealing layout, everything else is just average or below. So, if you are okay buying a 4G phone with a primary display and camera under the mid-range, you may look for it. Or if you get discount offers, it can be a fair deal. But there are considerably more promising alternatives in the market including a favorable set of specifications such as the Oppo K9x. So choose wisely according to requirements and needs to pick the best option.

Realme 9i hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
So that's it. We've had our brief little hands-on with the Realme 9i, and it felt a lot like a Realme 8i with a slower screen, worse-performing chipset, but nicer build and feel in the hand. What's more important is that if you're in the market for a phone at this price, you have some good alternatives, even from Realme's itself. The 8i is still on sale and it's the same price as the 9i, which might push many towards that phone - 120Hz over 90Hz alone might make the difference. It's not all bad, of course. The Prism design really is nice to look at and lovely to touch. And with a discount or two, the Realme 9i could easily become a great deal.

82% Test realme 9i. Tani smartfon do wszystkiego z zaskakującą słabością
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
Mam pewne wątpliwości, czy realme 9i to opłacalny smartfon. Kosztuje tysiaka, a wydaje się gorszy od poprzednika – nie ma wyświetlacza 120 Hz, jego procesor przegrywa w benchmarkach, wciąż brakuje mu aparatu szerokokątnego, a cena poszybowała w górę. Nie wiem, dlaczego realme 9i odbył swoją premierę w takim stanie technicznym – odpowiedź na to pytanie może być następująca: szybkie tempo wydawania telefonów dało się producentowi we znaki i nie zdołał on zawiesić poprzeczki wyżej. Z drugiej strony realme 9i to dobry średniak, który odpłaca się świetnym czasem pracy, pełnym wyposażeniem oraz wysoką kulturą pracy. Nie obyło się bez wpadek, jednak żadna z nich nie okazała się dla niego dyskwalifikująca podczas moich testów. Osobom chcącym zakupić realme 9i zaleciłbym cierpliwość, albowiem cena telefonu musi spaść – jeśli kwota w promocjach poszybuje w dół o 200 złotych, jego oferta będzie dużo atrakcyjniejsza. A do tego momentu możecie zdecydować się na mocnego poprzednika.

Review – realme 9i
Source: NLT English EN→zh-CN
All in all, for the price of RM869, I think the realme 9i is a rather decent phone overall. Some might say that it’s a bit more expensive than its competitors but I’d argue that the realme 9i is actually a well-balanced phone in all of the 6 aspects that we’ve talked about in this video. The software experience is important and the realme UI 2.0 is actually decent.

Realme 9i Review – Shines Bright In Budget

Every year, Realme’s ‘I’ series introduces a new smartphone to the brand’s lower mid-range lineup. This series has previously offered exceptional value-for-money offerings in terms of specifications, design, and build quality. The Realme 9i is the most recent addition to Realme phones, and it hopes to build on the popularity of its predecessor. However, is it good enough to take over the budget market? Let’s find out.

For those who want a solid budget phone under Rs 15,000, without 5G or gaming requirements, the Realme 9i is an option to consider. But the phone becomes harder to justify as a good update given how little it changes things from its predecessor. The Realme 8i might still offer a little more value at the same price for many users.

70% Realme 9i Review: A Step in the Right Direction?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English EN→zh-CN
The starting price of the Realme 9i in India is Rs. 13,999 and this could make it appealing to those on a budget. However, the more expensive variant competes with other smartphones that offer better performance along with 5G connectivity, which the 9i lacks. This new model offers stereo speakers and faster 33W charging, which are upgrades over its predecessor. However, the 90Hz refresh rate is a downgrade compared to the 120Hz display on the Realme 8i (Review). The Realme 9i's camera performance is also sub-par which makes it all the more difficult to recommend the higher priced variant to those looking for an all-rounder. Surprisingly, the Realme 8i offers better features and camera quality for the same kind of money. If you are looking for a future-proof smartphone with 5G connectivity, you could consider the Moto G51 (Review) or the Redmi Note 11T 5G (Review) instead.

Realme 9i Review: High on Style, low on price
Source: The Times of India English EN→zh-CN
The Realme 9i is a considerable option for people who want to buy a big smartphone with a good feature set and great looks at an affordable price. The large display and dual speaker makes for great multimedia experiences, and the long battery life with fast charging is a boon. If you are looking for these things in your next smartphone, there's nothing better than the Realme 9i at this price. That said, the camera output is sub-par and the lack of an ultra-wide camera is missed. The rest of the lackluster appeal makes it difficult for us to recommend it over other "comparatively exciting" 4G and 5G phones available at this price, especially when value for money is concerned. Those looking for a faster refresh rate of 120Hz, 5G networks and better cameras at a similar price range can go for the Moto G51 5G, Redmi Note 11S, and its predecessor -- the Realme 8i, among others.

80% Realme 9i review: Perfect for binge-watching
Source: India Today English EN→zh-CN
For a Rs 13,999 phone, the Realme 9i comes across as a good deal. It brings features that are rare to find at this price. For instance, the adaptive refresh rate is an efficient way to consume content on display. By deciding the refresh rate, it helps save battery for unnecessary tasks. And the 5000mAh battery itself is a reasonable assurance that the phone will last at least one day. Then, stereo speakers make watching movies enjoyable. The primary camera is mostly good, too, while the processor is capable enough for light users. Realme 9i is good for everyday tasks, using Instagram, chatting on WhatsApp, and, more importantly, binge-watching. And if these are exactly your preferences for buying your next phone, why not take a look at the Realme 9i?

The Realme 9i is not an extraordinary phone but delivers on the basics, offering decent daylight photography, good battery life, a capable screen and rich-sounding stereo speakers. It falters a bit on the gaming aspect, and the cameras aren’t very versatile, but all in all, you should get your money’s worth if you opt for the Realme 9i.

Realme 9i First Impressions: A Worthy Successor?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English EN→zh-CN
The Realme 9i ships with Android 11 and the Realme UI 2.0 skin on top. My unit had the December 2021 Android security patch. This phone has a number of preinstalled apps and most of them can be uninstalled. In the brief time I have spent using the 9i so far, I have not faced any issues while navigating the UI, and everything has worked smoothly. The price of the Realme 9i starts in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, and here it faces some stiff competition from the Redmi Note 10S (Review), its own predecessor the Realme 8i, and its siblings from the Narzo series. The higher variant of the Realme 9i is in the same price range as the base variant of the Redmi Note 11T 5G which boasts of 5G connectivity as well. So should you put your money on the Realme 9i? Or would you be better off with the alternatives? Stay tuned for the full review, coming soon.
