In my opinion, most people should buy the Redmi Note 9 Pro instead of the Max variant of the smartphone. The Max is only in the name and doesn’t translate...

There are no fancy shenanigans like an in-display fingerprint scanner, a pop-up camera, a 120Hz display, or a spectacular design. But, it gets the basics right. The design is flawless, the cameras are excellent, and the battery life is unmatchable. Performance is average, and we’ve got nothing negat...

In my opinion, most people should buy the Redmi Note 9 Pro instead of the Max variant of the smartphone. The Max is only in the name and doesn’t translate into maximum performance or efficiency.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max does not do anything special and it is okay to be that way. The only issue that I could think of is the low refresh rate display. This formula has worked from Redmi India for the last few years, where a device with a balancing set of features is something that people prefer over a device with one key highlight and many compromises. If you want a device to game on, take pictures, listen to music, and watch movies and also require trending features like fast charging and higher megapixel count cameras, go for the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.

A great all-rounder phone

from India Today

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max offer a considerable improvement over the Note 9 Pro. The main camera is much better than the regular model while the selfie camera makes selfies look more colourful. The faster charging does help when you need a quick top-up. Starting at Rs 16,499, the Note 9 Pro Max is highly impressive.

This Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and the non-Max model do share a lot of hardware. The primary and selfie cameras are the main distinguishing factors between the two models. Also, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max supports faster 33W charging and comes with a suitable charger in the box, while the non-Max model has to do with 18W. Camera performance could very well be the only parameter that sets the two models apart. The variants of these two models also overlap in price, so the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max isn't that much more expensive.
