Xiaomi Redmi 9C User Reviews and Opinions


  1. I do not see a phonebook on the phone. I use the sim cards and google account to store contacts. Is there a way to open the phonebook – if it exists?

      1. I know about the contacts in the right bottom corner. There is a contacts sign on the phone, but when I open any of these, it take me to simcard contacts and Google contacts as the accounts on my phone. No phone contacts.

  2. Please between the redmi 9c and Infinix hot 8, which is better overall, and which is better in terms of gaming?
