The absolute best buy among mobile phones in 2020

index finger

How does a mobile phone become best buy?

Based on several aspects listed below:

  • Display: bright screens, with good viewing angles and at an optimal resolution for the diagonal of the screen
  • Hardware: CPU, GPU, and RAM in enough quantity to deliver excellent performance
  • Range: fairly large batteries or particularly efficient energy saving systems
  • Camera: cameras (especially the main one) capable of making sharp, bright shots and with apps capable of opening and focusing quickly
  • Software: software can be more diverse types but must maintain a good balance between simplicity, fluidity and number of functions
  • Updates: We also take into account how much software is updated and whether or not the news is relevant

Mid-range Best Buy: Redmi Note 9 PRO

The Redmi Note 9 Pro, a good-quality Android smartphone, strongly dedicated to imaging, is awarded the best buy of mid-range 2020, able to satisfy even the most demanding user.

Surprising is the 6.67-inch Touchscreen display that puts this Redmi at the top of the category with a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels. On the functionality side, this Redmi Note 9 Pro is really not lacking, starting with the LTE 4G module that allows excellent data transfer and internet browsing, passing through Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS.

This Redmi Note 9 Pro is a product with few competitors in terms of multimedia thanks to the 64 megapixel camera that allows the Redmi Note 9 Pro to take high-quality photos with a resolution of 9238 x6928 pixels and to record 4K videos at the resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. The thickness of 8.8mm is contained and makes this Redmi Note 9 Pro very interesting.


Why is the best buy of 2020?

The 9th generation of Redmi Note smartphones arrives and as every year you are ready to declare them ''best buy'' not only for their technical characteristics but also and above all for their sale price. Precisely because of the vastness of the smartphones that Xiaomi is introducing on the market, Redmi Note 9 Pro can initially be a little difficult to decipher even if day after day the qualities come out and the phone shows all the potential with clearly some ''ma'' that remains for a mid-range that is not always easily digested by users for some shortcomings. 

Anyway, the Redmi Note 9 Pro comes at a really overbearing price and that's not why it wins the best buy. It impresses with the glass design, a large screen, a good quality chipset and a valuable quad-camera as well as a huge battery capable of dizziering numbers. Having already examined the competition we can immediately find a lack in this Redmi Note 9 Pro that is a screen with a high refresh rate that instead we find for example in realmes. Nothing bad but it now seems that this type of screen is becoming a prerogative even in the mid-range to the benefit of users who can favor a higher quality panel in this.
