The screen offers HD+ resolution and claims to highlight the color and details during video playback. The display on the Redmi 9 Activ seems pretty basic, but it makes up for it with a powerful processor.

The processor offers up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage, which makes it compatible with gaming titles. Plus, the chip includes HyperEngine Game Technology, making a seamless performance for gamers.

The cameras are paired with a powerful LED flash that assists in photography. Additionally, there’s a 5MP AI camera for selfies and video calling, housed in the waterdrop notch. The cameras are housed in a square module at the rear, making it quite stylish at the rear panel. Overall, the cameras are quite basic but can do a better job than the Redmi 9i Sport. 


Redmi 9 Activ Price-To-Specs Ratio

The Redmi 9 Activ is available in two models of 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, priced at Rs. 9,499 and the high-end model of 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, priced at Rs. 10,999.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
