The Realme 9i comes with a distinctive camera island. It is available in colors Black, and Blue. Maybe that’s because the back and frame are made of plastic (Dragontrail Pro) are not very slippery. The phone sides are flat all around which makes the 9i feel sharp along the edges. The power and volume keys are easy to reach and the power key doubles as a side-mounted fingerprint reader. It’s fast and reliable. You can use a firm touch, which means you’ll need to press the key, release it, and then touch the scanner again. The 9i has a headphones jack and stereo speakers next to it. It scores very good loudness on tests. Overall, the music sounds quite impressive.
On the front, you’ll find a punch hole in the upper left corner and not-so-slim bezzles. Especially the one on the bottom. Then Realme 9i has a 6.6 inch IPS LCD panel with a 90 Hertz refresh rate. You can set the refresh rate to 60 Hertz or choose the granular auto-refresh rate. Unfortunately, games will be stuck at 60 Hertz. This LCD has a Full HD resolution, nice contrast, and good levels of brightness with a max of 480 nits. You can comfortably (kinda) use this phone outside. Color accuracy isn’t the best though since whites and grays have a bluish tint. There is Dragontrail Pro Glass protection present on this display.
