5G is no longer the preserve of the most high-end phones, as the recent Redmi Note 9T proves. Its purchase price drops to one euro (after ODR) with a 5G 100 GB package from SFR.
Marketed in France since the end of 2020, 5G continues to democratize. On the one hand, because almost all operators like SFR now offer 5G compatible mobile plans. On the other hand, because more and more smartphones are compatible with the new generation of mobile networks. And this no longer only concerns high-end devices, since some affordable references benefit from this compatibility.
The latest one is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T. It is one of the most affordable 5G compatible smartphones that can be found. It is available from SFR at the price of one euro (after ODR) only and without additional monthly payment when subscribing to a 5G 100 GB plan.
A powerful 5G compatible processor
The main asset of the Redmi Note 9T is its chip. Here, Xiaomi trusts MediaTek and its SoC Dimensity 800U. Less known than equivalent chips from Qualcomm, the Dimensity 800U nevertheless has serious arguments in its favor. Indeed, its power is equivalent to that of Snapdragon chips found in much more expensive phones.
In fact, the Dimensity 800U and the 4 GB of RAM allow all types of use: navigation between applications is fluid, and greedy 3D games run smoothly after slightly lowering the quality of graphics. Above all, it offers 5G compatibility on sub-6Ghz networks, that is to say those which are already available in France. It is very rare for this price range, and this allows it to avoid a certain obsolescence when the use of 5G will allow new uses of our smartphones.
A champion’s autonomy
In addition to raw power, Xiaomi emphasizes autonomy with its Redmi Note 9T, which is two of the most important criteria when choosing a new phone. Thanks to its 5000 mAh battery, it is easily able to withstand several days of use before dropping to 0. It’s simple, it is one of the most enduring phones of the moment.
On the recharging side, the 18-watt charger allows you to go from 8 to 39% battery in 30 minutes. It doesn’t seem like much, but it’s still enough to last a day of use if you pay a little attention. The full recharge is done in just under 2 hours.
The rest of the technical sheet
The Redmi Note 9T does not rely entirely on its processor and battery. The rest of its technical sheet offers a balanced experience:
- a 6.53-inch LCD screen with a definition of 2340 x 1080 pixels
- a triple photo sensor including a main one of 48 megapixels
- the very complete MIUI 12 interface
- a jack, a dual SIM slot and a microSD
