The display is a 6.13-inch bezel less screen that makes for a crisp and immersive viewing experience. As for the chipset, the phone runs on a Snapdragon 845, which is a well performing chipset no matter what task you throw at it.

On to the flagship phone by Xiaomi, this phone is a serious contender to the Galaxy S10e, the OnePlus 7 Pro and the new Pixel 3a and 3a XL. The phone comes with a latest and fastest Snapdragon 855, up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Since this is Xiaomi's flagship smartphone, they haven't left any of the features out. However, the phone does sport a notch display, but that does not take away from the fact that the Mi 9 is a serious allrounder that can give Samsung and Pixel phones a run for their money.

Though Xiaomi has a slew of well performing phones under its belt, these are some of the best selling and most user appealing phones that you can get right now. They combine premium build quality with powerful specifications and a low price tag, which is why the phones sell like hot cakes. Xiaomi's lineup has truly expanded over the years and its title of the 'budget king' is for good reason.
