MIUI is probably the culprit regarding the smoothness, as it is one of the most heavy android skins. Realme UI is much better, as it mimics stock android. Good thing I was able to sell the Redmi, I am now rocking a Realme 8i and very pleased.

            One of the worst of Redmi. I bought three devices at once for me, my wife and daughter. Two of them totally crashed within 5-6 months time , and as per the explanations of the service center , its a software failiure and to them beyond rescue, and has to be replaced, which may perhaps would take months .
            I went for this because I have been using a Xiaomi Note4 from 2016 which so far operates quite well. In comparison Redmi 9 is an utter failure , rather a total bullshit , which even the authorised agents fail to attend to after sales services ,even within the warranty period. Don't allow even a worst enemy to buy this device.

              I'm using the 3/32 It can handle games well most of the time. The picture quality is fine for me but I don't use camera too often so read other comments if photography is your thing. It is very smooth but it has a limit(maybe because I only have the 3gb ram) Playing heavy games like PUBG is like impossible for me. SKY children of light is still playable but crashes every once in a while and I think it runs in a low fps while heating badly. but when it comes to moderate games its performance is superb. games like minecraft, mobile legends and GTA its stable 50-60fps. It will perform well if you do the correct settings gamedriver should be NOT default because it will limit its performance. unused system apps must be deleted. I don't recommend using the Game turbo. but overall its a great phone it meet my expectations. also it might not be perfect but don't complain too much afterall its just a budget phone.

                          After some testing with games with this phone, i have discovered that playing games without game turbo is MUCH better, i tested it out on a demanding open world game where all the visual effects cannot be set lower than high called sky: children of light and some other games like honkai impact and genshin.

                          So during my test i concluded:
                          Sky with game turbo: around 22fps, total 2 hrs of gameplay, throttled and heavy lag at 15 min.

                          Sky without game turbo: 24fps cap due to all settings high, total 1.5 hrs of gameplay, didn't throttled nor heavy lag but heat up to 37°C during the whole time.

                          Honkai with game turbo: 35 - 60fps with custom settings(mid res, all effects high except reflection and anti aliasing), 1 hour of gameplay, throttled during the last 15 minutes.

                          Honkai without game turbo: stable 42 - 58 with same settings, 2 hours of gameplay, did not throttle.

                          All the game booster does is just managing your background apps and throttles your CPU aggressively, it saves battery but sacrifice performance.

                          Ok i'm tired of typing

                          So in conclusion the game booster saves your battery but not the performance.

                          Also I'm using the 3/32 model

                                    Recording video is such a pain. The audio is missing every time. No plans to fix bug by the manufacturer. Go find other product.
