Realme 9 5G is a good option if you are looking for a balanced value-for-money budget mid-range phone. Speaking of getting your money’s worth, the phone comes at a starting price of around €180 or around $198. It comes in Stargaze White and Meteor Black and has two variants. The base variant has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM, while the higher-priced one has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM. The RAM and memory type used here is LPDDR4X and UFS 2.1 respectively. If you need more RAM, you can use up to 5 GB of the phone’s internal memory for this purpose.

In case you require more storage, Realme 9 5G supports an SD card as well. The phone has a dedicated slot, meaning you can use up to two Nano-SIM cards besides an SD card. The gadget can handle connections from 2G to 5G, which is evident from the device’s name itself. While it does have a plastic back, its build quality is good nonetheless. Apart from being sturdy, the device has a manageable weight of 188 grams. Similarly, Realme 9 5G measures 6.40 by 2.94 by 0.33 inches. It has a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.

Its screen-to-body ratio is 83.9% but its PPI density of 405 is impressive. Furthermore, it can go up to 600 nits of brightness. It delivers a decent multimedia experience. Realme 9 5G has high-resolution audio and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, but it misses out on stereo speakers. The MediaTek Dimensity 810 5G processor delivers an acceptable overall performance. The phone’s gaming requirements are looked after by the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. Coming to the software, the device runs Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.

Needless to say, the phone isn’t free from bloatware. The device doesn’t run Android 12 out-of-the-box, which is undoubtedly a downside. In the communication department, the phone has dual-band Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.1, USB Type-C 2.0, USB On-The-Go, and GPS. NFC is absent on Realme 9 5G, which is shocking. Coming to cameras, their overall performance is satisfactory in proper lighting conditions. However, their performance in low-lighting conditions isn’t up to the mark. The phone has a 48 MP wide-angle, 2 MP macro, and depth sensor camera on the back.

For selfies, the phone has a 16 MP wide-angle camera on the front. The device’s camera features include LED flash, HDR, and panorama. When it comes to video recording, both the front and the rear camera setup can do so in 1080p@30fps. The phone’s battery is awesome, which is often the case with mid-range phones. The gadget has a 5000 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery that supports 18W fast charging. With average use, the phone should last around one and a half days. Its 18W fast charging pales in comparison to what most of its competitors offer, though. This is another disadvantage of owning Realme 9 5G. The phone has all the usual sensors.
