The Xiaomi Mi 9 is one of our favorite telephones for a number of reasons. Though it straddles the mid-range to finances price bracket, it’s still quicker than flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and comes packed with top-rate features. You can assume an in-display fingerprint scanner, super-fast wireless charging (20W wireless, 27W wired), a triple-lens rear camera setup with a hefty 48Mp sensor, and a top-end Snapdragon 855 processor. Plus, you get a beautiful 6.39in AMOLED display.
Despite these beastly specs, the Mi 9 expenses a modest £329, to start, for 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. At this price, it is no shock that the Mi 9 has bought out on Xiaomi’s web page (at the time of writing).
