    Temperature reached

    The temperature measurement is made on the outside of the device, just so you know if you can hold the phone in your hand for a long time. After playing the games, I leave the device with the games open for longer to precisely have a better temperature measurement.

    The Redmi Note 9s reached 35ºC in most of its tests. It was one of, if not the coldest we tested.


    After having analyzed everything in the reports, we can confirm that the Redmi Note 9s is an intermediate smartphone with great performance for games, mainly because it does not have a high-end processor. Xiaomi optimized it well, always using GameBoost. If you want a cool smartphone to play, the Redmi Note 9S will provide you with good matches, even more because it has a very large screen.

    Our official seal for him is RODA LISO.

    How are the tests done?
