  • No ultra-wide-angle camera

The Realme 9 5G and the Realme 9 5G Speed Edition are new additions to the 9 series. These launches are a little surprising since the company has launched three other smartphones in the same series over the past two months. The Realme 9 Series spans a wider price range than previous generations, with a lot more options to choose from. This is good but it could also cause some confusion for prospective buyers. I will be focussing primarily on the vanilla, Realme 9 5G in this review to see how it compares to other smartphones in the same price range.

Realme 9 5G Summary

The Realme 9 5G sports a 6.5-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate and full-HD+ resolution. It has a hole punch in the top-left corner for the 16-megapixel selfie camera. The Realme 9 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC and is capable of handling light to medium usage without any issues.

The Realme 9 5G packs in a 5,000mAh battery that was capable of delivering about a day and a half worth of battery life. It has support for 18W fast charging and the phone comes with a compatible charger in the box. In terms of software, the Realme 9 5G runs Realme UI 2.0 on top of Android 11 and had a fair amount of bloatware onboard. 

At the back, the Realme 9 5G sports a triple camera setup consisting of a 48-megapixel primary camera, a black and white portrait camera and a macro camera. Photos clicked in daylight were decent but lacked details. Closeup, portraits and macros were a lot better. Lowlight camera performance was strictly average.
