Redmi 9i Sport Design 

Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has launched several smartphones that cater to budget-conscious buyers. With premium features and all-round performance, we have several powerful phones from Redmi. One such phone is the Redmi 9i Sport. The phone flaunts a 6.53-inch IPS LCD panel with an HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch. The phone is protected with a P2i coating that makes it splash-proof. It also includes rubberized seals that prevent water ingression and also packs corrosion-proof ports. 


Redmi 9i Sport Hardware Performance

Under the hood, the Redmi 9i Sport draws power from the Helio G25 chipset that includes HyperGame Engines Technology. The processor is paired with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB default storage. The Redmi 9i Sport with its powerful processor can handle your routine smartphone tasks. At the same time, it’s designed to handle gaming titles, making it a good buy for gamers. 


Redmi 9i Sport Camera Performance

The Redmi 9i Sport packs a dual-camera setup with a 13MP primary shooter and a supporting AI lens. Also, there’s a 5MP AI camera for selfies and video calling. The overall camera setup on the Redmi 9i Sport is basic, giving you just two lenses at the rear. If you’re looking for pre-specs in the camera department, the Redmi 9i Sport disappoints a bit. 


Redmi 9i Sport Price-To-Specs Ratio

The Redmi 9i Sport is available in two models, where the 4GB + 64GB model costs Rs. 8,799 and the 4GB + 128GB model is priced at Rs. 9,299. These prices are part of the initial sale discount, making it an attractive purchase under Rs. 10K. At the same time, the Redmi 9i Sport is up against several other budget phones from Realme, Infinix, and others under Rs. 10K budget. 


Redmi 9i Sport Important Features/Highlights

There are a couple of other features that make the Redmi 9i Sport stand out from the crowd. It includes a big 5,000 mAh battery that claims to deliver up to 11 hours of gaming. There doesn’t seem to be any fast charging support, however. The phone, like all other Xiaomi-branded phones, runs MIUI custom OS, which might include bloatware. The phone is also available in three colors, making it a stylish option to choose from. 


Redmi 9i Sport Verdict

Overall, the Redmi 9i Sport is a good buy for the budget-conscious audience. It disappoints a bit in the camera department but makes up for it under the hood with its processor performance. If you’re looking for a gaming phone with a budget price tag, the Redmi 9i Sport is the right phone for you!

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.
