realme has launched its first phone realme 9i of 2022 and today we’ll do the unboxing And there are a lot of confusing things about the phone that I just did not understand If you compare it to realme 8i it might be a downgrade, & this costs around Rs 14K And when you compare it to its competition, they are way ahead And when we look at realme we know that they provide us with good phones It comes with a different yellow & black box.
Let’s check whether it is actually a great story, I feel doubtful about it The case quality is good
The 33W charger was an upgrade, the 8i was 18W If you like shiny & glossy phones, this phone is great It’s a dust magnet!
So make sure you use it only with the case, case fits snuggly Let’s drop it The in-hand feel is different, I cannot say it feel great as I typically say about realme phones It comes with all the ports & buttons It has a 5000mAh battery, so let’s check the weight. It’s 193 gms The sim card tray at the left has a dedicated sim card slot, so you can fit 2 sim cards & an SD card
Let’s check from the inside, the display is the same as realme 8i, 6.6’’ 90Hz refresh rate with IPS LCD screen But the realme 8i had a 120Hz refresh rate The bezels & chin are average size, the selfie cutout is slightly bigger It has a Qualcomm SD 680 4G processor which can only support up to 90Hz But the good about the 90Hz refresh rate is the adaptive refresh rate which adapts to the activity you’re doing
The processor is a 6nm based processor so it means it is power efficient The 8i had G96, a 12nm based which was not so power-efficient The antutu score was 276201 of 9i, but the 8i(G96) had 340965 And you notice the difference while gaming as G96 was a better performer.
The base variant is 4GB+64GB & the top variant is 6GB+128GB, the 4GB variant comes at Rs 13,999 The 8i had UFS 2.1 this comes in UFS 2.2 with LPDDR4X RAM The gaming experience was good, but you can play BGMI at medium-high settings only It has a 90% screen to body ratio so the video viewing is great, because of the LCD screen,
the viewing angles are average The quality of the stereo speakers is good and quite loud, you can binge watch for 7-8 hrs without facing problems Because of the 6nm based processor, it has a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging The camera module looks like it has two big primary cameras But if you look at the setup the primary camera is 50MP, 2MP secondary and 2MP tertiary sensor I am showing some samples of the 50MP camera, & I was disappointed because I’ve always said that
The dynamic range of realme phones is good, so when I compare there are much better Rs 15K phones Also the ultrawide was a big miss, at Rs 15K there should’ve been an ultra-wide sensor But the selfie sensor is much better with 16MP,
Realme 9i Price in India
₹13,999 Not available in any online store
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 Processor
- 4 GB RAM
- 50 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP Triple Rear Camera
- 64 GB Storage
- 16 MP Front Camera
- 5000 mAh Battery
- 6.6 inches IPS LCD Display

which provides good skin tones and colours I am showing some sample photos of the camera It is a 4G phone, there are already 2-3 under Rs 15K which provide 5G And in our recent poll, 70% of the people said they won’t be buying 4G phones anymore Rest all the connectivity and sensors are available that you expect in a Rs 15K phone You can also add up to 5GB of virtual RAM,
which is debatable when it comes to the actual usage The realme 9 series should’ve had Android 12 out of the box, you get Android 11 on realmeUI 2.0, which is upgradeable
There are still a lot of bloatware,
there are around 15-17 preinstalled apps on the phone The realme 9i is a downgrade compared to the realme 8i, the UFS 2.2 & the 6nm processor Are the only new things that are added, also the 2MP cameras were a disappointment & the performance was a slight downgrade Also,
the display is 90Hz not 120Hz, that is why in the beginning I said some of the things are not that great If you disagree with my thoughts do drop them in the comment section, feedbacks are appreciated as well That’s all for Post today until the next one Keep cessind & Stay Safe.
