Though there are loads of preinstalled bloatware which is not necessary at all. The wallpapers are quite intriguing which you can watch and select all by yourself.
While you are setting up the device through the installation process, make sure you go through with the series of options and applications which are checked through default. This will further help you to prevent the spams from getting in your device.
How is the performance?
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max comes easy for use for all daily activities and does not run slow. Till the time, we have been using the phone, we have not come across any sort of difficulty with the phone. Rather it is good for multitasking. It does not feature a high screen refresh rate though.
The phone is pretty useful but it is not keeping up well to create a set space in the real world performance. For different review counters, it has been reviewed as 564 and 1759 respectively for single-core and multi-core tests conducted by Geekbench.
As long as it comes to playing online and real HD games on the phone, the load taken is pretty off. When you are opting for games like PUBG or COD, you will have to change the defaults to high settings. The phone does get warm after a constant 20 minutes of usage.
Watching videos is pretty well because of the display and size of the screen. Coming to the HD loop testing, the phone has lasted for more than 18 hours. As soon as the battery runs out, the fast charges come to the rescue which takes nearly up to 50 minutes when charged right from zero.
Camera Review –
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max comes with a 64 MP primary sensor with an f/1.89 aperture. The secondary sensor features 8 MP wide-angle-camera with a 119-degree field-of-view, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The macro camera is caught a little off guard due to the resolution when compared with other premium handsets of the same pricing.
The camera application comes in different modes to shoot on. The photo mode captures through 16 MP pixel-binned shots making use of the 64 MP by default. Also, you can cover the full resolution in the same MP. The Pro Colour model will help you clicking pictures in contrast.
The 64 MP camera does have to flash some changes. During daylight, the camera features dynamic range and sharpness. Pictures clicked from Pro Max has much more vibrancy than its successor without having to put into the AI model. Their warm tinge to the pictures gives it more of a life-like look.
Not just restricted to the colours, the sharpness level in the pictures have also increased. You will not have to pixel into the extra details with the phone. When the light falls, the bigger camera sensor tends to capture more details maintaining the colour accuracy. Coming to the streetlight conditions, the Max focuses on the struggles and it hides the grain with too much smoothness. Switching to the night mode, the photos does showcase much more light but the sharpness is not handled well.
For the close-up shots, the AI does understand the subject and set the camera accordingly. The phone manages soft bokeh effect while clicking the subjects. The wide-angle camera on Pro Max offers a wide field of view, there is a certain drop in the detailing though. Xiaomi has incorporated wide-angle correction preventing barrel distortion for a beautiful result.
The macro camera of the phone is good for too many close-ups which have a 2cm for focus distance. It captures minute details that have enough light hitting the subject. The resolution is higher than 5MP acquiring well from other smartphones.
Portrait mode has good edge functioning and the phone can easily distinguish between a subject and a background. It cannot assess the gap between a person’s arm and body while blurring the areas.
Coming to the video section, short videos are restricted to 15 seconds offering a kaleidoscope effect. The main idea is for Instagrammers and TikTokers. Slow Motion video could be taken in 120fps, 240fps and 960fps.
Main video recording comes at 4K 30fps right at the rear and 1080p 30fps for the selfie. During daylight, shooting at 1080p camera meters focuses well on the light and stabilises the output. On the other hand, the shimmer effect is also there.
What’s our take?
The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is better than its successor on different levels. The phone is much powerful and does come with different enhancements like battery life, good cameras and functions on the latest version of Android. The pricing of the phone is nearly higher. So, people with a tight budget, cannot tend to opt for this one. But if you are okay with spending well, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is indeed a better option. In comparison to its successor, the functionality and the result is way better.
