As can be seen in the table and despite the fact that both terminals share many characteristics, the POCO X3 NFC seems to be above the Redmi Note 9T in many aspects such as its RAM memory , its IP53 certification or the refresh rate of its screen.
Instead, the Redmi Note 9T improves on the POCO X3 NFC in 5G connectivity and storage technology (UFS 2.1). In addition, in performance it improves slightly to the POCO terminal although this is relative ... many will prefer a Qualcomm processor to a MediaTek, more than anything for its development and Custom ROMs .
Which one do we recommend you buy, Redmi Note 9T or POCO X3 NFC?
The truth is that choosing a winner is quite difficult if we take into account the "5G" factor and the vision of the future that we may have . Still, we have chosen several important factors for each terminal so that you can choose one or the other.
We recommend buying the Redmi Note 9T if:
- You care about 5G technology.
- You will need a lot of storage space via microSD.
- You care about the weight of the terminal.
- You need to have as much power as possible.
Instead, we recommend buying the POCO X3 NFC if:
- You often shoot in wide-angle mode.
- You need the longest possible autonomy and also a more advanced fast charging system.
- You care about updates beyond 2 years old.
- You are prone to spilling liquids near or on your smartphone.
- You play often and want to experience the benefits of having a 120Hz screen.
