The Oppo Realme 9i has the best specs for a mid-range smartphone. 50Mp camera with snapdragon 680 is pretty much the same combination with the snapdragon 720G. The snapdragon 680 has the better cores architecture when it comes to performance snapdragon 680 also outperforms some of the best mid-range processors like Mediatek helio G90t, Mediateak G95, MediaTek Helio g80, Snapdragon 710, Exynos 850, and Kirin 710.

The Realme 9i also have a better display. It’s using IPS LCD with 90 Hz so, that means phone screen will be snappier and more fast. With HD PLUS resolution and screen size is 6.6inches.

Realme is offering top best specs. With this Realme 9i comes with the 5000mah battery and with 33 watt of fast charging. This battery can be charged in just 70 minutes. Now let’s talk about its design the Realme 9i have the same design as the Realme gt 2 pro. It uses the plastic frame with plastic back and the screen is protected by gorilla glass 5 so, this phone have light weight and is tougher.

Now let’s talk about the cameras. Realme 9i uses the Sony imx 766 50 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/2.76″, 0.64µm, PDAF. Camera sensor it’s pretty big sensor capable of capturing some high details shots of indoors and outdoors. The default camera output is just 12.5Mp pictures contains rich high tones with a little saturated pictures. There is also 2Mp macro camera and 2Mp depth sensor.

Now let’s talk about the video capabilities of Realme 9i. The video is kept on 1080 up to 30 fps. I am so disappointed to see that this phone have amazing chipset with amazing camera sensor but still video is kept on 1080p at 30fps. There is no 4k support on this Realme 9i.

Now let’s talk about Selfie camera. It’s 16Mp f/2.1. Which is very capable of taking nice shots in the daytime but contains a little noise in the night time but it’s a good camera. Now let’s talk about its video this camera also supports 1080p up to 30fps. There is no optical image stabilization on both of these cameras but it has electronic image stabilization, which is still useful.


OS Android 11, Realme UI 2.0
Chipset Qualcomm SM6225 Snapdragon 680 4G (6 nm)
CPU Octa-core (4×2.4 GHz Kryo 265 Gold & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo 265 Silver)
GPU Adreno 610

AnTuTu Benchmark 9

GPU 38425
CPU 81097
Memory 68438
UX 63600
Total score 251642

Now let’s talk about its gaming performance starting with the AnTuTu benchmark. Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 gains 229009 in AnTuTu 9 benchmarks scoring best results at mid-range chipset. Realme 9i support PUBG Mobile at 40fps low. And with the gfx tool activated you can get high fps up to 60 and in freefire graphics is also at maximum, because it’s a snapdragon processor so the gaming experience will also be great and there’s no worries of getting hot during the gaming session because, snapdragon chipsets is always been the best when it comes to chipsets temperatures off course it will gain some but it will be stable.

Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth 5.0
Radio No
Usb type Type-C 2.0

Now let’s talk about the OS. The Realme 9i will be lunching with androids 12 with their own custom operation system Realme ui 3.0. Which is a lot smoother and a lot faster than other UI`s. The Realme 9i will also support Wi-Fi 6 with the Bluetooth version of 5.0. Which have better coverage and better speeds. The Realme 9i also supports headphone jack and with stereo speakers.

Sensors Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, proximity, compass
Type Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable
Charging Fast charging 33W, 100% in 70 min

Now let’s talk about the fingerprint sensor. So, it’s located on the power button of the Realme 9i. There is no in display fingerprint sensor. I always recommend the side mounted fingerprint sensor because it’s much faster and accurate than the in display fingerprint sensor. Now let’s talk about its battery. The Realme 9i have a 5000mah battery with 33watts of fast charging which is quite good when you want to charge your phone. Now let’s talk about its price because it’s most important. The starting price of this Realme 9i is 180 dollars and seeing these specs on just 180 Dollars makes this phone a lot cheaper and a good choice for those who want a good budget smartphone.
