- Page 9: Wrapping up the Xiaomi Mi 9 review
Xiaomi is using a really interesting design this time around. The entire back of the Mi 9 is curved a la a handful of the smartphones that we have tried over the years. This subtle curvature makes the Mi 9 superbly comfortable to hold in the hands
We have the Mi 9 with us in the Piano Black color. It is also available in blue color as well, though I wonder if the violet colored Mi 9 will ever make its way to Malaysia.
The Piano Black here looks a little more grey, and in a way, it’s somewhat like gunmetal grey. It’s also highly reflective and I’d recommend getting a protective case for this since the back of the Mi 9 isn’t entirely flat – and has a humongous camera bulge too.
The included TPU case is adequate to provide enough protection for day-to-day use, but lacks a lip around the camera bulge to prevent direct contact with whatever surface you put the Mi 9 on. Though, Xiaomi uses sapphire glass to protect all of the 3 camera lenses.
