Xiaomi surprised us last June with the launch of its Xiaomi Mi 9T, a proposal that came to put on the table a premium mid-range alternative with advantages over their own older brothers, like the Xiaomi Mi 9.
The terminal went on the market for a price close to 330 euros, but today, with Amazon Prime Day 2019, its price has dropped from 300 euros And, being clear, we can guarantee that it is one of the best, if not the best mobile in value for money today.
The essence of Pocophone, taken to the premium world
Xiaomi has always stood out for offering a lot for little money, but in the case of the Mi 9T, the proposal brings us even more than we could expect. The terminal sits on the basis of its Pro version (with a Snapdragon 855), so the rest of the components remain just as premium. No cuts, there is no plastic or details that denote that the mobile is not high-end, Xiaomi has not spared with the Mi 9T, and it shows.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T ‘smells’ high-end. AMOLED technology, fingerprint reader under the screen, glass finish, great performance. All this, below 300 euros
It is finished in glass, has no notch, part of 6 GB of RAM as a base, and it has certain advantages over its older brother, the Xiaomi Mi 9. The first one is its 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging. In our experience, the terminal reaches two days of use without minor problem, while the Mi 9 sins mainly due to its autonomy.
Despite this large amperage, the Mi 9T retains the headphone jack, which allows us to connect our headphones without minor problem, a whole Rare avis in these times. By last, we don’t have notch, something that is due to the inclusion of a retractable mechanism that works quite well, and that ensures years of durability.

The great unknown of this terminal resides in its Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, a platform that, due to its nomenclature, is usually directly related to the mid-range. Although the 730 does not reach the performance levels of the 855, at the CPU level it surpasses the Snapdragon 835 (being below in GPU).
A hard-to-find value for 299 euros
With the Xiaomi Mi 9T, in short, you have a terminal that lacks nothing, which not afraid to compete with the high end, and that offers us a user experience very similar to what we see in the Chinese high-end of 500 euros (OnePlus 6, Xiaomi Mi 9, OPPO Reno …), with the main benefits that we list.
- 4,000mAh battery
- Triple camera with 48MP main sensor and wide angle
- Notch-free design
- Headphone jack
- AMOLED FHD + screen
- Fingerprint reader under the screen
- Gaming-oriented processor with higher CPU than the Snapdragon 835
- Future update to Android Q
As we anticipate, during Amazon Prime Day 2019, the terminal will be reduced to 299 euros, a good reduction compared to its original price of 329, which allows us get a near high-end experience for less than 300 euros.
