Mobile Brands Review, an independent review site that takes a look at consumer reviews of all kinds of phones. And, the company does not put much stock in technology news as a source of information. I understand that from experience. They do have some very good sources in mobile phones and of course technology news, though they don’t really subscribe to many tech news sites.
The Pros & Cons of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro are short and to the point. I didn’t even bother getting into the many other aspects of the review, so I guess this will do? They spend more time on the advantages than the disadvantages. Yes, they do briefly go into some of the cons, but you really have to read that section for it. It’s not necessary to read it.
Just the points they made about the benefits were quite interesting, although I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the most obvious advantages are the excellent camera and the nice finish. No surprises there.
If you want to know the cons, the criticisms are quite sharp. Some of them are serious. These are:
We see these kinds of reviews all the time. That’s the nature of Consumer Reports. That’s how the word “cons” is used in their name. Or, better said, it’s what they write. The rest of the web isn’t quite as big as Consumer Reports, but I think the general sentiment holds true.
The pros are well done. They cover the things you would expect from an objective opinion and are pretty accurate.
We see the same thing from Consumer Reports. This just shows the validity of those opinions. From Consumer Reports’ point of view, they aren’t making any claims that you can’t make with your own knowledge and research.
There was one complaint that I read, but that might be because of the personality of the author, so I won’t get into it. But the pro is generally positive, and the one negative is the downside is not really that much to complain about.
It looks like the Pro has a lot going for it. It’s a premium smartphone, the better thing that they’ve done in a while. They also have that great display, and the multi-touch capability that will allow more functions to be done without touching the screen.
And of course, the pros of the Pros of the Pros are pretty impressive. As with most things, it’s about what you pay for.
