Our Opinion “Should you buy redmi note 9 pro Or Note 9 Pro Max?”
Well, we are not completely satisfied with today’s product launch by Xiaomi. We had expected a lot more things. To be honest there should have been a higher refresh rate of 90Hz at least for the Pro Max variant or at least an added feature such as AMOLED Display. We feel that the Pro Max variant doesn’t have so many distinct features compared to the normal Pro variant. And we also think that the price difference between the 4gb+64GB variant and 6GB+128GB of the Note 9 Pro could have been a little less keeping in mind many users are going to purchase the 6GB+128GB variant.
But overall we liked the distinct camera design and the upgrades from its younger sibling. That was all for these phones.
