Please make sure to use it in the description from banggood and gearbest anyway. Let'S see here. What do we have in the box and then we're gon na move to the uh test review? Well. I'M. Just here we go so we have a eu adapter, uh, microusb, cable, yes, ninjas, still the micro usb port with the a series redmi a series. Unfortunately, uh we have a pin top in our sim tray, which is has a two plus one sd card and two sim card, so you can use three uh three options in the same time and we have some manuals in just in different languages. Since this, this is a global version, i don't even know do they have even chinese version of the redmi 9a. I don't, i think they don't, have it bro anyway. I will also leave the buying links for the redmi 9c ninjas, which is selling around 20 dollars. More expensive, you can buy also that smartphone with my links in the description that smartphone offers more features like uh, slightly, better chipset it's, like more cameras and, of course, what else. What else has there? The rhyming knights here, of course, also has an uh, of course, fingerprint sensor. I think so yeah and we here we have the redmi note 8 check this out what a large display, what a large display. This is basically by the way or maximum graphics, and you can immediately see this color shifting here, basically that the viewing angles are not that amazing and that's fine.
That is fun. This is super cheap phone that i don't expect to have an amoled, uh or oled. Here, technology for 100, this is a decent screen for the price tag: bro, okay, so hardware, wise uh. Basically, the structure structure itself, the design and materials for the redmi, 9a uh it's thin, just it's, still, nine millimeters. This device is really thin. It has a really massive battery, but it's thin, nine millimeters it's, not that bad. Of course, if we calculated the the pump the camera bump, then that is more thicker, but this without the camera bump, it's nine millimeters uh heavy around 194 grams for again it's, not even heavy, for this screen size, 6.53, inches 6.53 inches for 100 bucks and, like I said here the screen itself it's decent uh. It is better than from the redmi 7 and redmi 8. I can immediately tell you this: it is slightly brighter uh, better color production, just love it it's, just like i said, there's a slightly more improvement, uh slight small improvements in the display quality and you cannotice that if you have those series uh anyway, so first, what We'Re gon na do is show you here that i did update it to the latest version and remember that this one fresh out of the box, it runs mui 12. miui 12.0.3. This is the miui global, stable version, and this is the update. We can go here to the update version and we can see what is new and what is new here.
Uh noise could be heard when the screen was turned off in some cases. I don't know what is that and updated android security patch to july, so it's, only one and a half months old, that is impressive, isn't it that is very, very impressive, uh. This version, which i'm having is of course, two gigs of ram and 32 gigs of storage ninjas. You do have also a different storage of the redmi 9a. You have uh, of course, four gigs of ram and 64 gigs of storage and selling for 140 uh and be beware: beware about two gigs of ram it's enough bro it's enough here: you're not gon na! If you're gon na buy the smartphone uh. Yes, we do have also umidigi a7 and udg a5 pro. I will leave the buying links for those two uh devices and firstly, what we're going to do is here check, especially with the miui 12. Here i don't have the pull up notification window to adjust the screen. Brightness. Like you see myself, i don't say that i love this with the miui 12.. You have to go to the display and from here we have brightness level reading mode color scheme. You can even enable scroller screen, saturated or after recommendation yeah and from here you can go to the cool. I love the cool sidebar just put an outer and put the cool side dark mode. We also have a dark mode with the redmi 9a.
This is very, very hard difficult to find in a cheap phones to have a dark mode in a cheap phone under 100 bucks, full screen mode outer rotation, screen, lock, screen and full screen display. Of course, you're going to go to the full screen gestures not now, and we can use them double check for notifications and gestures for the caches i'm, not going to use that it's going to just go back check this out so far it is fluid. It is fluid for 100. I can't say that it's the fastest there uh, if you add, maybe of course, if you buy the redmi 9c you're gon na, probably feel uh some small uh improvements in the speed here. But again this is decent. This is just decent and now we're gon na go to uh. Yes, let's check here. The screen we're gon na do some screen test again, just this is on uh. Basically, this is on maximum uh maximum brightness, which i'm having right now the redmi 9a. So this is a 6.53 inch lcd ips screen uh. We have 29 aspect ratio and this is a 720p screen. Just this is not full hd. This is 720p. This is the redmi 9a. If you want to have a higher resolution, then you're going to buy yourself. The redmi 9. 269 ppi medium density screen density. We have a brightness around 400 luxes, 1501 contrast ratio; it has a two tuv railroad rain land icon for certification.
Seventy percent of ntsc uh covered screen, uh scotch resistance, but so far we don't have information. What kind of uh screen protection it has by the way ninjas fresh out of the box? You'Re, not gon na receive a pre installed screen protector. Just have that in mind for this price tag, you will have to buy it additionally, so uh again, just you're gon na this is a decent screen. I can't complain uh also regarding the notch here. I'M gon na just show you. This is beautiful. This is very beautiful here. I always love uh, this video to show it in my reviews, but what i'm gon na do is show you here, i'm gon na go to the settings and show you around the notch. Do we have uh the ghosting and do we have that black shadow? We don't have any just sorry for that. Come on. You can see myself uh, we don't have it. So this is a decent screen. I don't see any problems with it also a leak. I don't see any leak whatsoever. I will just show you right now here light leak, nothing, nothing ninjas! I don't see anything. Let me just show you here turn on, like that i'm going to go to just a minute. Let me just find some black uh wallpaper again just so. This is uh the screen itself. So, like you see myself, we don't have any high heavy uh screen light bleeding or something like that bleed light.
I don't. Do you see it? I don't see anything here whatsoever in jazz, so maybe on the bottom here, but kind of it's, honestly it's not successful at all, maybe here here we go uh here this here over here we have just a small one again. This is what you find in these cheap china; phones that sometimes that's not having this there's, not a big problem like i said here, it's, not a big problem, it's not over the big screen, uh huge screen and maybe isn't this going to be different from uh. For the different units – but i just can report you that small small screen uh bleed light something like that happening here on the corner like silva stuff, i just turned the lights off. This is right now, the black wallpaper. What is this? This only means for the people who are gon na watch movies and suddenly, when you have dark, uh images. Dark scenarios in the in your movie you're gon na, maybe and it's gon na bother you but it's, not a big problem. Bro for 100 it's, not a big problem. If the smartphone will was one thousand dollars, then this would be unacceptable, completely unacceptable, uh anyway, so let's go now continue. We talk about the screen. Uh completely love it. We check. We checked here also uh. Basically, the screen brightness at the max and let's go now check it at the low we're gon na go also, you can use the sunlight mode which adjust brightness to strong ambient light when automatic outer brightness, when automatic brightness is off let's go to minimum now.
This is the minimum which is super cool for the knight to use. This is 50, and this is maximum now i'm, using it as maximum for just review as a review here, oh wait. A minute wait a minute. We have here the control center notification, shade hide the notch notch. Individual apps show connection speed, show carriers edit battery indicator. Also, we can enable that, so we got that we got that nothing else. We don't, we don't have anything else here. No lock screen let's see what do we have here: sonification notifications, home screen, okay, google discover swipe up on the home screen to open search, okay, global show memory, blur apps, show suggestions, okay, password security. Remember with this one. Doesn'T have a fingerprint sensor, but it has a face unlock which we're going to test it just in a minute now what we're going to do, we're going to go with the sound speaker test let's, see here how the sound speakers sound the redmi 9a. For now the screen test pad it has a passive amiibo, one speaker on the bottom Music who raps without music instruments he's using beatbox vocals nearly there. His songs, sm3wu check him out subscribe him, and let him know that you found about him on my youtube channel. Techutopia think in advance – and just we have here – a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. We have type a micro, usb port, one microphone and one speaker, volume, rocker and power power buttons will be marketing power buttons and on the left side we have the sim dual sim, which i told you also it accepts sd card on the back.
We have one single camera and flashlight, plus this redmi logo, with this really nice liner finish here plus. This is kind of scratchy scratchy surface, which is nice it's, plaid from plastic. I can't expect that much. It is from plastic. All this build is from plastic. Nothing here is from method, except probably the buttons are maybe from aluminium here. Maybe anyway, let's move on with now we're gon na do some speed tests and some benchmarks stay tuned. Okay and just tips with the miui 12, which you didn't have with the miui 11. Before – and this is the first time i'm – even seeing it – oh, i remember with the android tablets before basically from the left side, you can access the notification uh window and from the right side or from the window from the middle. You can access, basically the control center or you can just immediately check it out here, even anywhere in the screen just on the right or left. This is really cool. I have to admit this is very cool uh at the beginning, i had some troubles, but after that, or after just few times of use here, this is getting super super smooth and you can see myself. This is the control center. This is similar to the is have to admit, like you see by self, and also the brightness bar is there, which is also really cool. So in the finish you can also go out.
The brightness is on turn it back and, of course, you can hear, select and add different options. If you want to go with the different options, you can add them from here. You just tap done and from here you can also access the notification. The system settings. You can go immediately to the system. Settings like see. That'S up beautiful let's go next now: okay, checking here the headphones, the volume output max volume, okay, okay, let's, go with the holistic deer; also, okay, and just of course you can't see it. You have to buy the smartphone and check the volume by yourself, but from one to ten ninjas, the loudness and the quality for the price tag. I can give it six and a half nothing impressive, nothing even good. This is just average, and just just have that in mind that you're going to have an average volume output by the way i'm using really cheap, but again i've been using the same headphones with the different smartphones and this by far this was the lowest uh sound Volume that was coming with these headphones with this uh phone, but again you're, probably going to get a better sound with more expensive headphones. But again, of course, if you have only money to buy redmi 9a you're not going to have money to buy 30 or 40 headphones. Of course, you're going to probably spend these moneys to this money to buy a better phone and not better headphones, probably going to have a budget for seven eight dollars headphones to have earphones yeah everyone let's go now with the voice recorder, okay, voice recorder.
I just want to show you first uh yeah yep it works. I can use go to switch to the speaker. Like you see pasta, it works. Have the fm radio works let's go now to voice recorder. Now, okay let's play it. I'Ve recorded something already one two one two: this is the mic check: uh mic quality test with the redmi nine. A my mouth is forty seven feet away check, check, check, check it out, check it out, let's check here the noise cancellation in the background. Okay, now, my mouth is just a few centimeters away check check, check, mic quality, redmi 9a. Thank you, youtube channel let's check here the noise cancellation or the noise in the background, when i'm just silent, oh nice, bro. This is amazing, by the way, when i had this test when i'm just silent, the window is open, a lot of noise coming from the from the back from the outside. Again, just when you put your uh mouth closer to the phone you're gon na get loud and really clear, uh voice for this price tag, not that this is very cool anyway. Let'S move now next, next next and just we are back uh redmi 9a in my hands so ninjas this is uh. Basically we're gon na do some small speed tests, but before that we're gon na do some benchmarks. Uh let's go back here to okay. Bluetooth is disabled, i don't need it display. Brightness level is at max okay, we got that and let's go now here to the gallery.
We'Re gon na go to the screenshots albums and screenshots let's hear begin from. Of course i had this update, which i showed you we're gon na go to antutu. This is done to to score by the ninjas. This is the helio g25 it's an octa core chip clocked at two gigahertz, so it has an img power, vr gpu, two gigs of ram 32 gigs of storage. Remember this is a ddr4 xm and we have e double 5.1 storage. As an sd card expansion. Let'S go to the geekbench file. This is the geekbench 5 for this halo g25. You just and here we have it's interesting, it's, interesting, very, very interesting, mediatek chipset, mediatek smartphone. The hardware support level for the gcam is unlocked check. This out. Bro it's unlocked unbelievable uh, of course, l3 security level for the netflix white one l3 and yeah that's. It simple basic basic stuff: we're gon na go a little bit here through the ada 64. To show you some information. Some people do love when i'm sure the ida show daida 64. uh, i think i'm. The only the first commercial reviewer to even uh include all these apps in review. So far that i know anyway, they are very interesting. They are very interesting full of information. So you can check here the course uh a lot of different uh informations. This chip is built on 12 meter chip technology. We have here the display settings 720p. Like you see myself power vr watch ge8320.
Here we have some networks. We can go also to the thermals checking here. The normal temperatures uh under the normal use 37.8 celsius. I can see that's that's, i don't know i would say that it does heat up a little bit just more. This is i'm, not even playing any games. This kind of should be lower. This temperature should be lower bro again, i don't think. I think this is something critical it's, not critical. Sensors, like you, see the accelerator orientation light proximity sensor, yeah i'm gon na go just to the information just for that we're gon na we're gon na soon do the speed test and go again sad news. Uh we don't have magnemite and we don't have a gyroscope. It seems so we have i'm using i'm right now different application and i trust it and unfortunately there is no gyroscope. Can you believe that if i move the sensor like see, but if i move the phone there is no sensor inside of this phone. What can i do, what we can do bro? This is super super bad, no data from the sensor, and you see you save myself: hey bad bad, redmi, 9a. Why not? Why not having a gyroscope flame verily anyway? Now we can exit everything now we're going to exit everything and i'm going to start to do this speed testing just remember this device. Doesn'T have a fingerprint sensor. Uh it doesn't have an identification bar.
All these stuffs are removed, everything is removed, it has only face unlock, which i'm going to test in a minute. Regarding the of course, 4g lte. This is a 4g lte smartphone and this is a global version and it does have a b20, so it's usable in a uni js. You can use it in eu without any problems. Let'S check here. The first launch of the facebook let's check here the first launch of the youtube for the halo: g25: hey it's, okay ninjas, i can't say there's something really impressive, something good. I remember redmi 7. This is ninjas from redmi 7. redmi, 7 uh, okay, 7a. Then the redmi 8a and redmi 9a yeah it's, not a big difference, it's, not a big difference in this here. G25 there's, not a big improvements in the low end world and just in the mid range world there's a lot of improvements there, but in the low end world, unfortunately, there's no improvements. I can't say that i'm really sad about it. This is a cheap, cheap, uh market. For this price tags. Uh i mean what we also can see. It has a bluetooth 5, which is really interesting for the halo g25 100. This is very rare that a phone has a bluetooth, 5. uh. It has otg ota. It has audio jack radio, fm ota, sync tethering and volte let's. Just here check the tools and we have uh let's, see here the fm radio is it there fm radio is here.
We have screen recorder, also recorder with voice recorder and screen recorder, all together, yeah. So, like you see myself here, uh two gigabyte ram, smartphone opening the youtube opening play store and it closes and just it can't keep hold it like that. This is so stupid, bro, stick data, app permission full screen or blur app. This is so stupid. Oh my god, this new ui 12., i don't, know why people are praising it. So much honestly, i don't like it that much. I don't like it that much sorry for that ninjas, but a lot of cool stuff are removed from the from the miui 12 from the miui 12 from ui 11.. I don't know why they've done this example. I can't look now the apps in from the recent task. Maybe i can do it in the settings, but from here i can't do it or am i doing something wrong? I don't think i'm doing something i'm, not doing anything wrong, bro the option i was. I would usually just hold it and it will appear, but nothing now. It goes immediately to the said. This is bad. This is bad. In my opinion, this is very bad bro and, like you, see what's up i'm, not impressed by the performance of this a g25 again for 2020 standards. This is going to be slow for unit just it's going to be slow for you. I can even say that the hero p23 is a better option: it's a better option, a p23 even scores better and two to score.
I think so. I need to recheck that, but so far what i noticed from the omg a5 pro, which i reviewed seven eight months ago, it um five pro was faster smoother than this device hey there. You go check this out again play store closed and this is only for application. Bro two gigs of ram anyway uh let's, move on okay let's go now and test the face id. Okay again. What can i say normal it's average ninjas average for 100. This is it you're, not gon na get anything better with different smartphones, maybe slightly a little bit better with the umidigi, but hey ho that's. It that's it just anyway. If you want to get the fingerprint sensor, just spend 20 dollars more. If you need it, then you're going to get it with the redmi 9c and let's move next now. Okay, so also important aspect of the smartphone is the battery life ninjas. The redmi 9a has a 5000 image battery inside of it with a 10 watts fast charge included. If i can call it fast charging uh the non removable battery and remember uh top it off with android 10 qmui 12. uh. This device in charge is charging at charging speeds from zero to 100, takes two hours and for around two hours and 40 minutes screen on time can get impressive around 10 hours, ninjas around 10 hours. So this is a smartphone, for i don't know for kids, for students for old people who want to have a smartphone with a beast, and of course this is a smartphone smartphone for a backup for a backup as a backup smartphone for the different users.
I don't know different ages, etc, etc, and i love it love it completely. Love it here to have a 10 hours skin on time for 100 bucks that is crazy, crazy, good, two hours and 40 minutes to fully charge it from zero to 100. This gets a really great score and, in my opinion, in the top three best reasons to buy this device is the battery life. Okay, now we're gon na move with the camera department before showing you the camera, samples and uh pictures camera videos. Please i have to basically let you know and advise you please make sure to check my full camera review on my youtube channel it's. There make sure to check it out because i'm going to show you a lot of show you a lot of different uh options and a lot of different video samples and video and picture samples with this device uh anyway. What i love about the miui 12. It is this approach with the camera stock new, basically the miui's skin. Here with the camera itself. I love how they've done this with the photo and i have to go back, but here this option is this is just so cool the aspect ratio the seconds for the shutter. You can also go to the settings from here and can use still shit and tilt shift and show red lines, and from here you can add time, stamps focus and shoot customize, so they had added more stuff here, save the sd card.
Everything is here and anti binding cool, very cool, the video sample. This one can go maximum 1080p and one option more: 720p, 30 fps. The back camera is 30 megapixel, uh, of course, high high resolution. I can call in that high resolution for 100 bucks. What you can expect not 64 megapixel anyway, uh yeah, that's it it has manual, focus and autofocus autofocus needs some updates improvements, uh pictures and low light pictures are not bad bro, not bad. Here. I will show you that in a minute check this out. This is not bad for 100. Honestly. This is not bad at all, loving it. I will show you pictures right now. The pictures at the day that makes really cool pictures and clarity is there high res. Is there a lot of details, video samples so so on? I can't say that i'm really impressed the front selfie camera video samples are really good, very, very sharp. I was surprised by the selfie camera, with the sharpness and overall it's a better device in the camera than the humidity smartphone. You have that in mind. Maybe umidigi. Obviously, will give you three cameras with the macros macro lens and everything ultra wide. If you care for those sensors, then you're gon na go with the humidity. But if you don't care, if you care for one good, good single camera sensor there, you should go with the redmi 9a. The phone selfie chemin engines is basic.
Uh five megapixel sensor, we're going to show you right now all the samples and after that we're gon na go with the gaming samples uh use my links below to purchase this uh low end cheap, cheap budget phone from xiaomi, slash redmi. Thank you. Redmi 9a. 1080P. 30Fps video test with my friend riding a bike: handheld footage working, say: marikomi, just peace be upon you. This is a camera review, full camera view of the redmi 9a after the updates, this 100 smartphone from china from xiaomi. So you can basically judge myself. Is it worth buying for this price tag and, of course, again, xiaomi does attack okay, let's test it out of focus? Okay, not bad, it could be faster, it could be faster. Optimization is needed, optimization is needed. Bro, Music, Music, not bad it's playable, just as playable it's, not surrounding 60 fps, but it is playable, not bad for 100 phone Music, okay, Music, not bad though this is very playable. This is very playable here, asphalt 8, which is crazy, there's no asphalt, 9. On the playstore – oh, my god, a bit slow this little mud, it's, playable bro. You have to admit this is playable somebody with a sniper shooting okay. So my conclusions on the end, should you buy the redmi 9a for 95 100 with a discount coupon? You can even buy for 95, so this is really a good good price tag. You got. Ta get miui 12 android, 10q 5000 mah battery a really good camera on the back it's, maybe a single camera, but it does make very sharp and clean pictures at the day.
Beautiful colors, beautiful details, video samples are okay, it's passable, but what i love about? The video sample of the front selfie camera is better than with the umidigi lfo neurophone and other brands under 100. So if you care about the selfie camera, you should buy the redmi 9a huge display, 6.56.5 inches, bro, that's, amazing, amazing, maybe 720p, but but again what you get can get for this price tag. It'S fine umidigi does offer full hd resolution, which is insane insane gaming experience, it's decent battery life, around 10 hours screen time, 2 hours and 40 minutes to fully charge it good good good, basically results. What else we can mention here, the fluidity uh kind of i can say that they should work more. They should work more on the fluidity regarding opening in the apps and management i'm. Not that satisfied with that, but probably going to add and improve this speed in the future, insha allah so ninjas. Yes, i do recommend redmi 9a uh. Also you can wait maybe a month for the umidigi a7. You can go. Maybe with that one that the device will also be under 100 and it's going to be very, very interesting for now, redmi 9a is one of the best deals on the market. The buying links in the description support my channel.
