Redmi 9 Activ was launched in India the last week and this smartphone is supposed to attract budget buyers with the kind of specifications and price it has. And looking at the features of the smartphone, you can make it out that the smartphone is actually worth the money it takes in budget.
The very first concern that a person has while spending money on a smartphone is the chipset in the device. Tell you what, the smartphone has a MediaTek Helio G35 octa-core gaming processor that is clocked at 2.35GHz. This is certainly not the best option at the cost it takes, however, while you consider it a budget device, you can rest assured that the smartphone would do well for the basic users.
For instance, if you want a smartphone just to operate the social media apps or click photos and videos or watch videos and movies online, the smartphone would do really well. And this is where the Mediatek processor should be offered the credit.
In fact, you ought to know that the chipset has Mediatek HyperEngine support as well which assists the gamers. So if you wish to play games at low settings, this smartphone is not a bad option at all.
When you look at its camera, you again get an impression that the smartphone is meant for budget buyers. It contains a 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera and a 5MP front camera. I think the camera section could have been a little better for the cost it takes, but again, not so bad at the low cost.
In fact, you can get as much as 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with the device and a 5000mAh battery as well. With all these features, I don’t think Redmi 9 Activ is a bad device at 11k. In fact, it can serve basic purposes really well.
