About Xiaomi Mi 9 - Review, Specs + more

The Xiaomi Mi 9 has 3 cameras, feels pretty responsive and fast and is dual SIM capable. You can even charge it wirelessly. This flagship from the lesser-known Chinese manfacturer is one of the 'new dawn' of smartphones from China - gone are the days when the Chinese made cheapy, nasty handsets; nowadays these can roll with the likes of Apple and Samsung with ease.

So has Xiaomi made a quality handset here, or is it worth plumping for a more premium, high-end smartphone from Samsung? Let's find out...

  5. Xiaomi Mi 9 Price in UK

A versatile, quality smartphone

The Mi 9 is quite a desirable package when you look at the specs, and the price. Its display is 6.39" in length, borderless and resolves to 2340 × 1080 pixels, the pixel density is 403 ppi. Not exactly understated, this actually beats the iPhone Xr or similar range in terms of specs.

With Xiaomi firmly planting its flag on UK shores lately, its arrival has since been met in the tech community  with thunderous applause. The Chinese smartphone giant has made great strides in the West in little over a year, offering handsets with flagship features at far more palatable prices. It's scored super highly in pretty much all reviews, and this one will be no different

So what's the difference between the Mi 9 and the Xiamo Mi 9 SE? The only real difference worthy of your consideration is the size, and the slightly higher price of course - the SE is smaller, with a few other compromises, to reduce the price further. Ultimately they're both wonderful handsets and which ever you choose you can't go wrong.

The regular Mi 9 is a well-rounded package, it sits in the premium bracket in terms of features but not of price. For example, durable Gorilla Glass 6 protects against scratches and other damage, at the time of writing this is the most recent and up to date Gorilla Glass available in the UK.

Worthy of note also is that integrated dual SIM function: this allows you to use 2 SIM cards and thus 2 mobile phone connections at the same time. For example you may want to use your Sim only deal for one, and a contract for the other.

Xiaomi Mi 9: battery

The battery is 3300 mAh which is reasonbly big and given this, you can charge it wired as well as wirelessly. The operating system is Android 9.0 Pie, although oneCompare is told that Android One will be available as  free upgrade.

Future-proof , fast chip

The Mi 9 has a Snapdragon 855 with 8 cores and 6 GB of RAM. With the Adreno 640 GPU, most games should be smooth enough - even with uprated graphics settings enabled. The internal memory is not expandable but make sure that you decide which capacity suits your needs before buying: it's not expandable, so ii you need a lot of storage space,  buy the 128 GB version.

The Mi 9 naturally has a triple camera on the back. The main sensor resolves to 48 megapixels, and there is a telephoto lens for an optical zoom and selfie-style photography with the much-vaunted bokeh effect. The 3rd lens, at 20MP, is a wide-angle lens, perfect for scenery shots. 

Verdict

An LED flash and additional functions such as autofocus and HDR are also included as standard, showing that Xiaomi have really pitched this phone for those who are looking at the camera high on their list of priorities.  Plus, you can  record videos in Ultra HD - at up to 60 fps.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 has a large, almost borderless display and a fast processor. In the hand it feels great, and looks the part too - you wouldn't know this phone didn't cost twice what it should have. Indeed, Xiaomi’s Mi 9 represents the very pinnacle of smartphone technology, and I’m simply astounded that it does things this well, while costing so little in return.

The Mi 9 is yet another five-star smartphone from Xiaomi, and It certainly doesn’t get any better than this. The only negative is that name, and having to tell people how brilliant this phone is, while saying the tongue-twister brand name... but I'm sure you can overcome this.

Just as practical is the triple camera setup, plus additional features such as wireless charging and dual SIM support. Alternatives are the OnePlus 6T and the Huawei Mate 20. Both of these models are similar in size and received similar ratings in tests. Where the Xiaomi really has the edge is that it's cheaper than both of those models.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Price in UK

In the UK at launch the Xiamo Mi 9 costs £399. It's now available for about 100 notes less than this, as the price has fallen. So that really makes it a steal and definitely a 5/5 from us.

Mi 9 deals: How long does delivery take?

Is SIM Only better for Mi 9?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Xiaomi Mi 9, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Xiaomi Mi 9 ee contract or a Xiaomi Mi 9 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Xiaomi Mi 9 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 1660 Xiaomi Mi 9 deals, our cheapest Xiaomi Mi 9 deal over the entire life of the contract is £697.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Xiaomi Mi 9 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Xiaomi Mi 9 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Xiaomi Mi 9 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Xiaomi Mi 9 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
