Gotta love all these ret4rded sinophobic garbage comments. They probably didn't know that 90+% electronic parts all over the world come from locations like Shenzhen. Go live in your cave forever.

Redmi 9's biggest advantage is the 1080p display. Realme 5 has a 720p and that aside it's very dull and low brightness.

No doubt that redmi 9 has Good desplay but you can't say that realme 5 has low brightness issues... Although realme has 720p display but brightness is enough to use in day light and color saturation is also amazing

My vote goes to Snapdragon's 665 because GPS has always been better with the Snapdragons that I have owned. GPS connection has been much quicker and more stable. Don't know if the Helio G80 has finally caught up, but I'm not willing to try anymore.
