And This is Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20 review

Body and Display Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20

Like many premium phones these days the Mi 9T is made from glass with an aluminum frame we light our carbon black model which has a striped pattern lurking beneath the surface but the dazzling glacier blue is also quite striking the glass back is curved and this tapered edges give the phone an elegant look the accents on the camera and the power button are a nice touch too the phone is big and slippery and like the regular Mi 9 there is no waterproofing here be careful when You're out by the pool this summer one.

AMOLED with a tall aspect ratio and a 1080p resolution content looks great on this screen with this deep AMOLED blacks and a sharp 403 PPI it supports HDR content too and colors can be quite accurate based on Your color settings lik most AMOLED this one has support
for an always-on display for Your time and notifications and it has various themes You can choose from too beneath the screen is one of the fastest under display fingerprint readers I've ever used unlocking is a breeze a lot more responsive than plenty of other phones we've seen lately.

If You want face unlock is another option though it does require You to swipe on the screen, so it's not as fast and this feature may not be available in all regions alongside all the cutting-edge features, 

Audio of the Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20

The Mi9T still brings a regular 3.5 millimeter Jack and FM radio audio through headphones has very good loudness, But we wish the stereo separation was better the loudspeaker is on the bottom next to the USB type C port is scored a very good mark.

And a loudness tests sound quality is also very good though there is some distortion in the higher registers at max volume The Mi 9T runs the latest me You i over entered 9 pi it brings quite a few customizations over vanilla Android, One of the biggest differences.
Is that there's no app drawer here all of Your apps will be kept on the home screen and the test switcher is organized vertically in two rows we feel lucky that the apps that came pre-installed didn't have any ads or banners in them, Some regions will get these by default and You'll have to turn them off manually. 

Customization And Storage of the Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20

You can customize Your home screen with different themes but they're only available if You set Your phone to a supported region like India for storage You can opt for 64 or 128 Gb built-in and sadly that's it there is no way to expand it via microSD.

Battery And Performance Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20

At the heart of the Xiaomi Mi 9T is the most powerful mid-range chipset from Qualcomm the Snapdragon 730 along with 6 Gb of ram in benchmarks had tops the charts against the competition and we didn't encounter any overheating or throttling the flagship Snapdragon a 55 will still beat it in graphics.

Performance but You won't have any problems playing the latest games here The Mi9T 4000 MaH power battery is about 20% larger than the one inside the Mi 9 and a posted an excellent endurance rating of a hundred hours and our proprietary tests it charges really fast - with this 18 watt charger we were able to go from 0 to 45 percent charge in half an hour.

Camera And Videos Xiaomi Mi 9T Redmi K20

On the back of theMi9 there's a triple camera setup we have a 48 megapixel main camera the quad bear filter an 8 megapixel telephoto cam, And a 13 megapixel ultra wide cam, none of these have oh is the main cameras images are 12 megapixels by default we were.
Really impressed by the quality they have excellent detail great contrast true to life colors and a wide dynamic range if You want You can also shoot in 48 megapixel resolution it isn't really worth the extra storage space to take up there isn't that much.

Now let's move on to low-light photography regular shots from the main camera turn out just okay the lack of all is restricts the shutter speed so exposure is darker than we'd like the phone must use higher ISO and then reduces the noise with aggressive noise reduction which takes its toll on the level of detail if You turn on the dedicated night mode shots take a bit longer but it is worth it You get a proper exposure and subjects look a bit more detailed.

They are still rather soft though if You want to zoom at night You won't be shooting through the telephoto cam instead You get a digitally cropped and zoomed photo from the main camp nighttime photos from the ultra wide-angle camera aren't very good due to the aggressive noise reduction dark exposure overall softness and lack of detail and You can't use night mode with this camera.
Let's talk about the selfies the motorized camera has fixed focus but if You get the focus distance right shots turn out excellent they have more than enough detail nice colors and good sharpness dynamic range isn't impressive but auto HDR does improve things The Mi 9T can capture videos in up to 4k at 30fps and they have electronic stabilization 4k videos from the main camera are sharp and detailed.

Overall the cameras of The Mi 9T are surprisingly excellent during the day at night don't expect a lot and better stick to night mode, so that's the Xiaomi Mi 9T or Redmi K20 almost every feature is a win, From the knotch free, AMOLED screen is a lightning-fast under display fingerprint reader the solid battery life fast charging great cameras killer chipset and of course that pop-up selfie cam You can show off to Your friends as far as downsides the cameras aren't that great at nighttime shooting but they're all right and Your storage is an expandable here but to be honest there isn't a lot to complain about.

So overall the Mi 9T is a feature pack upper mid-range device that a lot of people would be happy with it brings great value and definitely earns our recommendation thanks for watching guys and see You on the next one.
