Informr score
The Realme 9 Pro currently has an Informr score of 8.1 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 2 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

Coming out of India, Realme has released two new phones to its line-up, the Realme 9 Pro and the 9 Pro Plus. You can find the information on the 9 Pro Plus here.

The two varieties have some things in common while others differ, and it doesn’t come down to the 9 Pro Plus being better in every circumstance.

What’s the Same

  • Android 12 with Realme UI
  • The same amount of storage and RAM
  • 16MP selfie camera
  • Headphone jack
  • Available in Midnight Black, Aurora Green, Sunrise Blue

What’s Different

  • 6.6-inch IPS LCD
  • Qualcomm SM6375 Snapdragon 695 5G processor
  • MicroSD slot available
  • Side-mounted fingerprint scanner
  • 64MP camera

The Realme 9 Pro’s processor clocked in faster than the 9 Pro Plus so that Plus on the end of the name doesn’t always mean better.

Small details like a slightly larger display and a MicroSD slot make the 9 Pro marginally better than the Plus.

However, the two phones show a lot of similarities at the same time with capabilities that added up to good reviews. Most of the changes are more of a small step ahead than a vast differential.

Business Insider India says, “The Realme 9 Pro+ 5G can be considered for its faster-charging speed, better processor, and more storage capacity. But if a better display and slightly better camera is a priority then the Realme 9 Pro 5G is recommended.”

The Realme 9 Pro arguably has a misleading name, given that its camera and performance don’t always operate at a professional standard. Still, it earns its place among other affordable mid-range Androids for a number of reasons, with its enduring battery, enjoyable display and easy software arguably...

- Simon Chandler, Tech Advisor

The realme 9 Pro has a few highlights: the battery life is good, the casing looks nice, and the processor has a lot of power. However, it is never really enough for realme's mid-range phone to achieve top rates in the class, and thus it remains a solid phone that cannot inspire. The somewhat inaccur...
