To add finishing touches to an already good phone, the Mi 10T is fitted with a stereo speaker setup on it, and powering the whole thing is a 5000mAh battery tank that can be refilled through a 33W superfast charging system via a USB Type-C port.

So in conclusion, if you want all the best things that Xiaomi can currently offer among all its phones that are exclusively sold in Nigeria, then the Mi 10T should definitely be the first phone on your list of best Xiaomi phones in Nigeria right now.

  • Price: 116,000 – 135,000 NGN.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro is the pack leader among Xiaomi’s newly launched Redmi Note 10 lineup, and it is actually what Xiaomi is bringing to the fight to contest Samsung’s similarly spec Galaxy A52 and A72 series for the crown of the best mid-range phone of the year, just the same way they did last year.

The phone is currently priced at 116,000 NGN for the base configuration model which comprises of 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, and it is available in all major Xiaomi phone outlets like Slot, Pointek, Jumia, etc.

And for that price, here is all you’ll get with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro.

First is a 6.67 Inches 120Hz HDR10 complaint AMOLED display, with a maximum brightness rating of 1100 nits, and protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back.

All the processes that will be going on or taking place on this phone are being handled by an 8nm Snapdragon 732G processor that is paired to 6 or 8GB of RAM capacity, which in turn, is channeled to a 64 or 128GB of fast UFS 2.2 storage system.

There is a stereo speaker setup on board here too, and as expected for most phones launched in 2021, the phone boosts Android version 11 out of the box, with a makeover of Xiaomi’s own MIUI 12 version on it.

Keeping the lights on is a 5020mAh that is wired down to a 33W superfast charging system, which Xiaomi claims can bag you up to 59% of the depleted battery amount in just 30mins of charging.

Now that sounds cool right?

Yea, I know too.

Best Xiaomi Phones in Nigeria – Xiaomi Mi Note 10

  • 6.47 Inches 1080p (Full HD+) AMOLED display.
  • 398 PPI density, HDR10 compliant.
  • 60Hz screen refresh rate.
  • Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

  • Android™ 11+ MIUI 12.
  • 5260mAh battery + 30W fast charging.
  • Price: 218,000 NGN.

Buy Now: Xiaomi Mi Note 10 (6GB + 128GB) @ 218,000 NGN, Slot NG.

Even though this phone has been around for quite a long time now, as it was launched in late 2019, it still easily falls among the best Xiaomi phones in Nigeria at the moment, and for 218,000 NGN, here is all you’ll get with the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 smartphone.

First of all, you’re entitled to a fairly compact 6.47 Inches curved AMOLED display, this one doesn’t come with any high refresh rate levels of any sort, because during its time, the high refresh rate thing was still a feature that was reserved only for flagship smartphones.

A Snapdragon 730G processor is sitting inside of it to make sure that every process is handled as it should. On top of that, you get 6 Gigabytes of RAM capacity that is traced down to a 128 or 256GB of UFS 2.0 storage system.

Where things begin to get really interesting is on the camera department, and trust me, this one is a mouthful, so get ready.

We’re looking at a 108MP main snapper that is equipped with OIS and Laser autofocus. You get two separate telephoto lens here, the first is a 12MP sensor with up to 2x optical zoom, while the second one is an 8MP sensor with a 3.7x optical zooming capability, and it is fitted with OIS too.

Aside those, you’re still entitled to a 20MP ultrawide sensor, and lastly, a 2MP macro sensor and lens. And that’s for the back alone. On the front, you’ll get a lone-shooter 32MP sensor, and that is all you’ll get for cameras.

The phone launched with Android 9.0 Pie during its peak time, and since then, it has gotten two major android version updates, so if you should get it now, you’ll be getting the notification to upgrade to Android version 11 with MIUI 12 makeover on top of it.

Keeping the lights on is a 5260 mAh battery with a 30W superfast charging system, and with this, Xiaomi claims you can get this phone from 0 to 100% in just 65 mins of charging, which equates to an hour and five more minutes.

Sounds cool to me.

So if you’re in the market for a new Xiaomi phone, and you have up to 218,000 NGN on you to spend on a smartphone, then the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 should definitely be included in your list of best Xiaomi phones to buy in Nigeria right now.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10

  • 6.43 Inches 1080p (Full HD+) AMOLED display.
  • 409 PPI density, HDR10 compliant.
  • 60Hz screen refresh rate.
  • Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
  • 48MP Quad rear camera setup ([email protected]).
  • 13MP front-facing camera.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 (11 nm) processor.
  • 4GB RAM + 64/128GB storage (UFS 2.2).
  • Android™ 11+ MIUI 12.
  • 5000mAh battery + 33W fast charging.
  • Stereo speaker setup.
  • Price: 88,500 – 97,900 NGN.

The vanilla Redmi Note 10 is the immediate younger brother to the Redmi Note 10 Pro that we just spoke about a few minutes ago, and because these two phones are carrying the same DNA in them, you should be expecting similar spec and features across both phones.

So, for a starting price of 88,500 NGN for 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage configuration of the Redmi Note 10 phone, here’s everything that you stand to get.

Firstly, you’ll be staring at a 6.43 Inches Full HD+ AMOLED display with up to 409 PPI of pixel density, and just like its elder brother, the Redmi Note 10 Pro, this phone’s display can also reach a peak brightness level of 1100 nits, but it doesn’t come with a high refresh rate feature like the Pro version.

You’re getting a Snapdragon 678 chipset, which on paper, doesn’t seem like it comes anywhere close to the SD732G chipset that was used on the Pro version, but when you compare it side-by-side to the Mediatek Helio G85 chipset that was used on the Redmi Note 9 phone from last year, then you’ll see that it is actually an upgrade.

On top of that, you can get this phone in either its 4GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration, or you can decide to go gangster and go instead for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option.

In the camera department, you’ll be getting a 48MP main shooter, alongside an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP macro lens, and a second 2MP depth sensor.

While on the front, and tucked neatly inside a centred hole punch cutout is a 13MP wide sensor.

Like its elder sibling, the phone boosts Android 11 with MIUI version 12 out of the box, also comes with a stereo speaker setup and a 5000mAh battery that is also capable of doing 33W superfast charging.

So the conclusion here is, if you’re on the lookout for a nice Xiaomi phone with a great display, a good processor that won’t lag, an “okay” camera system, stereo speakers, a large battery and a fast charging system, then you should include the Redmi Note 10 in your list of best Xiaomi phones to buy in Nigeria in 2021.

Best Xiaomi phones in Nigeria

Buy Now: Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S (4GB + 64GB) @ 96,500 NGN, Slot NG.
Buy Now: Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro (4GB + 64GB) @ 112,500 NGN, Slot NG.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9S are basically and exactly the same phones on the outside, with just some little differentiating touches on the inside;

And even though these phones have been around for a year now, and have even been replaced by the new Redmi Note 10 series, they still have what it takes to be included in the list of best Xiaomi phones that one can buy in Nigeria right now.

First is that you’re getting a large 6.67 Inches Full HD+ panel, although these ones aren’t of the OLED type like the ones on the Note 10 series, and even less so, they don’t support high refresh rate levels of any sort, but you’ll be getting a Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both their fronts and backs, which is something that is lacking on the Vanilla Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 phone.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro comes equipped with a 64MP main camera shooter which is accompanied closely by three other auxiliary sensors, an 8MP ultrawide, a 5MP macro with autofocus, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The Note 9S comes with a similar setup too, but this time, the 64MP main sensor on the Pro version has been swapped for a 48MP sensor on the Note 9S.

You’ll be getting a 16MP front facing camera on both models.

In terms of performance, we’re looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset on both phones, which sits comfortably somewhere in the middle between the Redmi Note 10 Snapdragon 678 chipset and the Note 10 Pro’s Snapdragon 732G chipset.

During their launch, both phones came with Android 10 + MIUI 11 custom UI out of the box, though only the 9S model has been updated to Android 11 version since then, but, as it is with Xiaomi’s tradition, we’re pretty sure that the 9 Pro model will be getting its own share of Android 11 update as well.

Both phones are fitted with a 5000mAh battery, and while the Redmi Note 9S is rocking an 18W fast charging system, the Redmi Note 9 pro comes flexing an even faster 30W superfast charging system.

In terms of pricing, the Redmi Note 9S will set your wallet back to 96,500 NGN for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration, while the Note 9 Pro can be had in two different configurations, and at two different price points.

You can either have it in its 4GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration just like on the Note 9S, and that one goes for 112,500 NGN, while the beefier 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version will set your wallet back to 120,000 NGN.

So, if you have such amounts to throw on a phone, and you’re on the hunt for some nice Xiaomi smartphones with large displays, above-average cameras, great processors, and solid battery life, then the Redmi Note 9 Pro and 9S smartphone should definitely be included in your list of best Xiaomi phones in Nigeria.

Once again, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a phone that has been around for an even longer time than the rest Xiaomi phones on this list, but it still manages to find a place in the list of best Xiaomi phones in Nigeria.

The phone comes equipped with a fairly large 6.53 Full HD+ LCD panel with no high refresh rate levels, but it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back.

The Helio G90T processor that this phone comes with is still a solid performer even by today’s standards, and you can get the phone in its 64GB or 128GB storage variants, they both come equipped with the same amount of RAM, which is 6GB.

The 64MP main camera sensor on this thing has come a long way, as it is still the same sensor that was used on the Redmi Note 9 Pro model from last year.

Aside from that, you’re still entitled to an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP macro, and a second 2MP depth sensor, while on the front is a 20MP lone-shooter.

Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, and since then the phone has gotten one major update to Android 10 with MIUI version 11 on it, and who knows, it might still get updated to Android 11 with MIUI version 12.

Keeping the lights on is a 4500mAh battery tank which I still think is pretty large even by today’s standards, and this tank can be refilled using an 18W fast charging system, via a USB-C charging port.

This one is for people who don’t have up to 90,000 NGN to spend on a smartphone, but still wants something that can offer them an unmatched performance in everyday usage.

So first thing first, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 comes ladened with a 6.53 Inches Full HD+ LCD display, and like its elder sibling, the Redmi Note 9 Pro, this one too doesn’t come with a high refresh rate level of any sort., though the display is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 sheet.

You’ll be getting a 48MP quad-camera setup that comprises an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro lens with autofocus, and a second 2MP sensor for depth sensing. On the front is a 13MP lone-shooter.

Aside from cameras, the phone comes fitted with a Mediatek Helio G85 chipset, which has proven to be no slouch in terms of performance after going through various rigorous tests by tech reviewers and even in day-to-day usage.

The phone comes rocking Android 10 with MIUI version 11 out of the box, but we’re pretty confident that Xiaomi will be updating it soon to the new Android 11 version, with MIUI 12 proprietary UI on top of it.

You get a 5020mAh battery tank inside of it, and this tank is regularly being refilled by an 18W fast charging system, via a USB-C charging port.

So, like I said earlier, if you don’t have up to 90,000 NGN to throw on a smartphone at this time, but at the same time, you still need a pretty solid Xiaomi smartphone that will serve you well and wouldn’t feel any less expensive, then the vanilla Redmi Note 9 phone should do just the trick.

So, make sure you add it to your list of best Xiaomi phones to buy in Nigeria.
