Overview

The Xiaomi Mi 9 has...

A smaller battery than 55% of similarly-priced phones
A larger screen than 77% of similarly-priced phones
A higher-resolution rear camera than 86% of similarly-priced phones
A higher-resolution front camera than 76% of similarly-priced phones

If you're looking for a smartphone that packs premium performance and flagship features but won't cost you a small fortune, the Xiaomi Mi 9 might be the answer.

While it doesn't carry the same brand recognition as phones from the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG, the Mi 9 is no slouch. Along with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM, it features a massive 6.39-inch screen with just a small teardrop notch sacrificed to the front-facing 20MP camera. Around the back, a triple-lens camera array combines a 48MP primary lens with a 12MP telephoto lens and a 16MP ultra-wide lens for some serious photographic capabilities.

Couple all that with an in-screen fingerprint sensor and support for Qi wireless charging, and the Xiaomi Mi 9 makes for one compelling package.
