As for me Xiaomi MI 9T Pro looks very good, though not as good as OnePlus 7 Pro or OPPO Reno 10x zoom, because the housing is shiny. However, what is very important, the glass on the back panel does not get dirty too much, as in the Galaxy Note 10+. Additionally, keeping it clean is not particularly difficult.

The gradient is the only one of its kind. The blue color version provided for testing can definitely be enjoyed. It is a pity that the cameras protrude above the face, but a plus for the use of LEDs under the glass pane. Gorilla Glass 5 was used for the productionwhich is present on the front as well as the back panel. It has been joined with a metal body, which is in the same color as the housing. The elements have been properly fitted together.

If you are wondering if the Xiaomi MI 9T Pro can be operated with one hand, the answer is yes, but it certainly will not be comfortable and safe. We are dealing with a structure with dimensions of 156.7 x 74.3 x 8.8 mm. However, if you insist, then know that to reach the notification bar with your thumb or system buttons you need to gently move the smartphone in your hand. However, this may end in a fall that the glass panes may not withstand. To absorb an accidental fall and save plecki Before scratching, it's worth using a dedicated case that is matte and pleasant to the touch.

The modified design of the front panel compared to the standard Xiaomi MI 9 forced the manufacturer to move the Selfie camera to the center of the housing. We are dealing with a pop-up camerawhich is extended by means of engines. It was placed on the left side of the upper frame and its extension is accompanied by a blue backlight visible from the front, as well as a sound signal. However, you can disable these goodies in the settings. What is important the camera is protected against falling – the camera retracts during free fall.

As you already know from the first impressions, Xiaomi is known for the rather unusual placement of the notification LED, which is why it is located in the retractable camera element. During more than two weeks spent with this model, I happened to look at her several times. For me, therefore, it is useless, precisely because of the strange location.

The red power button is located on the right side of the phone, as is the volume control bar. The bottom edge is occupied by a multimedia speaker, USB type C port and a microphone. It is also here drawer for two SIM cards in the nano standard. The upper frame is an additional microphone with noise reduction, and therefore a secondary and also a 3.5 mm mini-jack connector.

On the delicate frame above the screen there is a speaker for conversations, which does not know why it is not a multimedia speaker at the same time.

The front panel has been filled to the brim with a display. Relative to Xaomi MI 9, the frame has significantly reduced, and the so-called chin is only slightly wider than the upper frame.

The battery offers good working times

Energy is supplied by a smartphone 4000 mAh battery with support for 27W fast charging technology. So, in relation to Xiaomi Mi 9, the capacity was increased by 700 mAh, while maintaining the screen diagonal. However, this is at the expense of wireless charging.

Initially, I charged the smartphone every day, but when instead of intensive battery charging I started normal use, it turned out that enough energy for a maximum of 1.5 days, which is the most acceptable result. The time when the display turned on in mixed mode (with a predominance of active LTE connections) was a maximum of five and a half hours. However, the average SoT is four and a half hours. By default, backlight management is automatically adjusted by the ambient light sensor.

Of course, this time can be easily extended to two days without any special limitation. The results of bacterial tests, however, are phenomenal and leave the flagship far behind.

It takes about 90 minutes to replenish energy to 100% with the included charger, and 30 minutes is enough to get close to 50%. This is the only way to charge, because the equipment lacked an induction coil enabling wireless energy recovery.

Super AMOLED display with HDR support

Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro has a display that has a diagonal of almost 6.4 "(6.39") and FullHD + resolution, more specifically 2340 x 1080 pixels. With this characteristic, a panel with 19.5: 9 aspect ratio made in Super AMOLED technology has appropriate pixel density per inch and offers a sharp image.

In the case of an OLED screen, the maximum luminance does not matter in manual mode, because it is always lower than when the backlight is controlled by the existing light sensor. The readability itself is very good – there is none problem reading the content even in full sun. Of course, in dark rooms or at night, there is also no problem with reading the content. I have absolutely no reservations about the color reproduction, because they are juicy enough.

Xiaomi enables us control of contrast and color temperature – three values ​​are available (cold, warm, default and self-adaptation). And although theoretically the screen should be set to an intermediate value by default, it is clearly closer to the warm color, although white is actually white, not yellow.

The software also includes several other useful features, including: eye protection, dark mode, or delayed flickering. I appreciate the presence of the dark theme, but I missed my schedule.

Xiaomi also gives us a screen compatible with the environment (Always on Display), thanks to which the clock with date and graphics, battery charge status and notification icons can be displayed on the dimmed screen. We have several graphic designs that are pleasing to the eye, although the default one is the most interesting.

The smartphone also received optical fingerprint reader in the display. Over the months, there has been considerable technological progress and significant development of this technology. Throughout the test period, I used only the sensor as a form of biometric security and I can count incorrect readings on the fingers of one hand. It is therefore sensational, and the unlocking is accompanied by animation.

I would like such fast and precise readers in Samsung smartphones, and certainly in the flagship Galaxy Note 10+.
