Hi Dimers,

Currently using Redmi Note 3. Need to change the phone.

My usage is lot of apps, occasional weekend photography, mails, etc.

No games, no entertainment apps usage.

SAR Value should be possibly low.

Please suggest me from :

Redmi Note 9 pro / Realme 7 / Poco M2 pro / ?

Thanks in advance.

Redmi note 9 pro and Poco m2 pro are exactly same devices in every aspects hardware,looks etc.
But Poco m2 pro is available in 6gb,64gb variant while rn9 pro have 6gb with128 gb storage only.
So you can get one of above two out depending on your spec preference else haven’t seen any other difference.

33w charger in poco, 18w charger in RN 9 pro.
No ads in poco (claimed by Xiaomi), but ads in RN 9 pro.
Poco launcher ofcourse in poco m2 pro, no poco launcher in RN 9 pro.
Everything else is same.

Great didn’t looked that so that makes poco m2 better.
These phones are really good for the price but really sucks in UI & over that MIUI filled with private data sucking bloatwares which makes rethink before choosing them.

Poco m2 pro will be available at 13k with 10% card extra, may be, that will be the best choice out of these three.

Poco launcher is supposedly not as good as mi launcher especially for latest miui 12 based on android 10 but yes poco devices definitely have less ads than redmi note devices.

My realme narzo 20a silicone cover arrived before the phone. The damn thing is about 40% larger than my redmi 4.

My present screen is good enough but narzo 20a looks way too bigger and heavier to handle.

I travel a lot on bike and also mount phone inside car stearing when in new city. Might stick keeping my redmi 4 .

God knows why the race for huge screen, huge battery and 3-4 useless cameras.

My friend got his redmi note 9 pro recently.
Man it’s really massive in size plus too heavy also now almost all new ones are this big so not really good size options out there.
I also don’t like this much big phones.

Rooting is not an option for everyone especially if you use many financial apps & keep them updated(I know there is magisk but it is always a cat & mouse game between magisk & apps needing non-rooted phones).

Poco launcher has that app vault, wallpaper carousel & the Mi app store get apps recommendations. There is also full screen recommendations in mi Music & Video player. Make sure to thoroughly research custom rom before trying by asking at xda forums as there are many Indian users there. Many banking/financial apps don’t work nicely on some custom roms.

Nah. MiUI is way better than Realme’s.
Blocking ads permanently on MiUI is 15-20mins job.

I have heard a lot of good things about Oxygen OS but as far as realme OS is concerned last time I checked it didn’t even show detailed battery stats which in my opinion is one of the most basic functions any android os must have. Maybe now they have incl it(not sure) but it shows that other than ads miui is better than realmeOS.
