    ------

    Here is my review of the redmi 9 color red sunset
    Bought on BG flash sale for 127 euro incl fast shipping with tracking and glass/shipping warrenty

    The unit came with EU to UK dongle and took 10days to arrive

    This is my first MIUI based phone.. It looks nice with lots of theme options
    MIUI settings has some quite advanced settings.. but there are hard to find
    Game Turbo, powersave on night times, startup apps manager
    Allow location if app is running is nice for example

    MIUI Apps seem to have a lot of ad/analystics incl, but you can disable them under settings of the app
    https://www.androidauthority.com/rem...-miui-1019139/
    - there is one more under settings/sim/data

    testing hardware.. with 2 sims and 128gb sdcard
    Screen looks good (have seen better )
    Camera looks good for a cheap phone
    IR - this is wierd you can use the phone as a remote.. for my TV , For my Amp, For my blu ray
    -It has a app, where you can search brand/model..then downloads remote profile
    Gps.. started G-maps.. and 2sec later it new where I lived ( my othere cheap phones where slow, like 5min+ )
    -GPS test shows : 35 in view / 16 sats in use / accuracy 2m
    Radio works.. good
    Audio from speaker.. its jus 1 speaker and it sounds abit dull shalow
    audio from 3.5.. sounds good but lacks surround feel
    battery life... for 5000mah bit dispointing ( vs my old phone ) must tweak it... it seems
    meizu hifi pro.. this is dac.. makes the music more dts surround like working great
    sim's.. you can choose what sim is data/internet and for phone calls
    support.. i got 2 updates and looking at xda forum MIUI 12 is coming: (device name : lancelot)
    https://www.xda-developers.com/downl...-poco-devices/
    Cpu throttling test : 94% of its max performance

    A1 Benchmark :
    internal = read 277 mb / write 0
    ram copy = 11344 mb's
    sdcard - 27mb's / 11mb's
    DRM info : clearkey 1.2 / L1
    3d mark :
    sling shot ex : opengl es v3.1 = 1340 / vulkan = 1326

    system
    https://www.imageupload.net/image/qN8d2

    Note unit supports 18w fast charging, but the given charger is only 10w
    - 5v x 2amp = 10w
    from 20% to 80 takes about 1h
    Most sites report NFC support.. but BG store and aida64 say No NFC

    I bought this phone to replace my old phone.. where the micro usb port came lose

    I mainly use.. my phone for:
    Music Flac player with meizu hifi pro
    Whatsapp messages
    Generic phone call's
    Gaming/videos..only if im stuck waiting for something

    I have one pre-paid sim and one ISP Internet only sim with 2gb fullspeed.. then 56k at no charge

    Note:
    I use Netguard to stop most apps from connecting to web..
    -Under Settings/advanced/system apps... you can block Google play ect
    The apps that are allowed.. are filtered/forced to use DNS adblock
    -netguard / settings / advanced /traffic filter : then add DNS blocker IP'S
    For youtube.. Youtube Vanced
    Website.. firefox with no-scripd and Ublock origin
    So, I rarly see any ads..

    Pros
    • Beautiful more blue the purple.. grippy plastic body
    • Large, sharp IPS screen
    • Good battery life with lots of options to tweak it even more
    • Good photo and video quality for this price class
    • Android 10 with updates.. and android 11 coming in aug
    • Wireless FM radio, 3.5mm jack, Dual Sim, microSD, IR blaster
    • Supports external Dac's
    • Cons
    • Not waterproof
    • Comes with analistic/ads


    If you have any questions...

    Interesting found a hidden menu under system info...tab Kernel Version buch of times
    You get a message : out of CIT
    You can test hardware..and create/view logs

    After watching lots of youtube vides about tweaking/hidden functions/themes customizing
    -This phone is looking really amazing ( eye candy ) / got a batt standby almost a week
    The updates made the system more responsive
    Taking part of many themes / enabling Apps drawer.. made life alot better
    Looks like this phone is worth the money.. just for the learning fun/exp alone

    Cheers

    I am quite excited by the arrival of the Redmi K30 Ultra with the Snapdragon chasing MTK Dimensity 1000+ SOC.

    With phones at around half the price of the equivalent Snapdragon it brings them more into the available budgets of more people and when combined with a USB-C hub, can be not only a pretty powerful Mini PC but also something that would make all the TV boxes (including the Shield) currently available look like tortoises in comparison to the hare when it comes to power.

    So if you ever get your hands on one, or something with the Dimensity 1000/800 series it would be interesting to see just how far performance goes when used in a PC/Media Centre style way.

      So, I bought a buch ''rugged cases'' for my phone
      -I bought four differend versions.. but recieved 3.. but got 2 of same.. anyway
      -------------
      1. Xiaomi Redmi 9 Case, Rugged Shockproof Dual Layer Heavy Duty Protective Kickstand Cover
      https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....AC_SL1000_.jpg
      -Picture upload seems to fail ( error 500 ) on freaktab

      Pro:
      I like the Ring for easy holding and as stand..
      It feels quite sturdy and if placed on glass side..the cover protects the glass using its ridge

      the bad
      There is no protection for the ports /usb-c and headphone ( dust/water)
      Its hard platic shell ( it makes phone stirdy, but will it protect a phone )

      ---------------
      2.
      Xiaomi Redmi 9 Case, TPU +PC Iron Armor Shockproof Designed Case?Full Body Dual Layer Rugged Cover for Xiaomi Redmi
      https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....AC_SL1500_.jpg

      Pro
      Its has a rubber based inside layer 1mm
      The corners are covert by thicker rubber about 3mm
      It feels quite sturdy and if placed on glass side..the cover protects the glass using its ridge

      the bad
      Black plate Iron.. it just platic and comes off really easy ( 4 rubber pins are holding it in place )
      There is no protection for the ports /usb-c and headphone ( dust/water)
      Looks like fabrication error.. the microfoon ports are coverd
      -------
      Conlusion.. Whille the covers look good.. I don't think the will do much protection from water/dust/falling
      Note : On youtube there a buch of redmi 9 durabilty reviews.. and it performs quite good
