The Redmi 9A is undeniably one of the most popular entry-level phones locally due to its features and price point. We give you reasons why this is a good device to get this season.
Despite being a phone released last year, the Redmi 9A is still a top choice for many who want a good Android experience without shelling out much. Here are some of its best features.
Redmi 9A specs:
- 6.53-inch HD+ IPS dot-drop display, 720 x 1600px, 400 nits

Up to 512GB via MicroSD

- 5MP front camera
- Dual SIM, 4G Dual standby
- WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 5, GPS
- Micro USB, 3.5mm audio jack

The 6.53-inch Dot Drop display enables you to view multimedia content with ease as it’s larger than most phones in this price range. A dewdrop notch may look dated, but it feels useful if you’re looking onto using MIUI 12 — swiping down from the upper left reveals the notifications while swiping from the upper right has the control center in tow.
It also features a low blue light mode — the phone emits warmer whites to help you read well especially in dark environments, like before sleeping or out in the city at night.
This phone features a MediaTek Helio G25 chip along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (with an option to expand via microSD), and it’s a decent everyday phone for those who need just one for moderate tasks such as social media browsing, calls, texts, or even taking quick photos with its 13-megapixel rear or 5-megapixel front camera.
This phone is also okay for video conferencing in case of remote learning for at-home students, or as a device specifically for your workplace.
Huge battery capacity
There’s also the huge 5000mAh battery capcity than can get you more than two days of battery life if you’re using it only for light to moderate tasks such as WiFi browsing, SMS, and calls. It’s also handy to have a phone that can keep up with your activities the whole day.
A price you’ll love
Finally, the price. The Redmi 9A is available at the Xiaomi Global store for PHP 4,289 (for the 2GB+32GB model) online at Shopee, which makes it a good starter phone for those who are new to smartphones, or a backup phone for those who need one.
