Build, Design and Display

Both phone was built with same material (front glass, plastic back and plastic frame). The pop up selfie camera of the Camon 15 premier does makes it look more premium. But that is not to say the dew drop design of the Redmi Note 9s is old fashioned (at least not yet).

We said earlier that Redmi Note are popular for having gaming SOC. This is also true of the Redmi Note 9s that comes with an SOC from Qualcomm the Qualcomm SM7125 Snapdragon 720G (8 nm). Which is a better performing SOC than the Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 (12nm) of the Tecno Camon 15 Premier.

To be honest, Tecno Mobile could have powered the Camon 15 premier with a better performing SOC from MediaTek. I mean, using an SOC built on (12nm) is not the best of ideas. But then again they also have to keep the phone within price range. So its a case of bringing something new ad downgrading some features.

For a better gaming and graphics experience, the Redmi Note 9s is your phone. Don’t get it wrong here. Its not like the MediaTek Helio P35 of the Camon 15 premier is a bad SOC but compared with the Snapdragon 720G, it has no chance of beating it when it comes to performance.
