so i wanna get a new phone but I'm stuck between too options a Samsung Note 9 and a Redmi note 10, which would be better to buy? only unbiased answers please
I live in Jamaica, it is refurbished phone the thing is the note 9 is the 128gb version and the Redmi note 10 is the 64gb I jus need a phone with a good camera and speed that will hold me off for the next 5 yearsWhere did you see them for sale and in what country?
Would the Note 9 be refurbished or used.
Xiaomi have daily and weekly discounts on their Redmi, Mi and Poco brands. (I have a Mi and a Poco).
The Redmi 10 in the UK is 5G but for me it's not the best value phone they do in that range. Redmi 10 Pro (4G) is better for a little more, but the Poco X3 Pro is better and discounted, while the Poco F3 is outstanding.
What features do you like in a phone?

The battery and screen was replacedOne thought, if you do consider a refurbished or used Note 9. This phone could be up to three years old, and so the sealed battery might need replacing sooner or later. So check if the refurbished phone includes a new battery.
This came to mind because as I have a Huawei Mate 10 I've had for just over three years, and that's now showing messages about battery health deteriorating, and I think it could even start puffing up if I kept on charging and using it.
I understand thatIt's tough to get five years out of a phone these days even if you buy it new. A three-year-old phone that will be eight years old five years from now, nope.
You're far better off with something new or at most one model/year back.
Remember too that an older device may not be receiving any updates, especially if it's not a higher-end flagship model.
Ahhh ok I see what u meanI just saw a different version of a Redmi Note 10 selling very cheaply (£119 - 129) on a slightly dodgy website.
This is apparently a variant for India and other markets which has vastly different specs so I would check it out thoroughly before buying, although according to GSM Arena this model exists and is not necessarily a fake.
It has Amoled not IPS, Snapdragon 678 not Mediatek 700U, 4/64GB minimum but an SD card slot (check this) and may only be 3G/HSPA network capable
It all depends on your budget and what you saw it for. I can see the appeal of the Samsung at similar money but would only recommend the Redmi hesitantly.
See if you can visit and buy from www.mi.com but I don't think they would be in Jamaica if they are not afaik in the US. They do have great devices discounted to that price band even with 128GB but this is in Europe.
