Hello guys, it’s George from the detechtor.com team and today we are going to be reviewing the Redmi Note 9s. Again, Redmi has done what they do best with this one. This is a very solid phone at an incredibly budget-friendly price.
I’ve been using this phone on and off for the last few months, so I’m going to give you my first initial impressions of this phone and a review of all the amazing features that it has.
On the box, there’s a picture of the phone on the top, the Phone name and a bit of the phone info and specs on the side, and nothing at the bottom.
