Both smartphones have very solid processors, offer 4G internet transfer speeds, boast strong, long-lasting batteries and offer cameras with solid specifications. The Redmi Note 9 Pro does not just offer a cheaper option, it also brings better battery power (with incredible quick charging), adequate storage space (same as its rival) and a processor that gamers would love.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro should be your pick if you love mobile games, as its big battery coupled with its chipset will make sure you get the best gaming experience possible.
