I am looking for a budget phone. The main thing which matters between these 2 devices in the processor. Both available with 4 GB RAM. Rarely watch Full HD. Gaming performance not important. But normal usage like browsing, audio, video, calls ( & also VoIP voice & video), should be good enough & should not unnecessarily become slow or warm. Which one should I buy?

Redmi 9 Prime (10k) is the superior device any way you look at it:
Compare Xiaomi Redmi 9i vs. Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime - GSMArena.com
For 10k, it is one the rare good device with a FullHD display. Other upgrades like Type C port, ultrawide cam, better performance, fast charging, etc are good upgrades.

I recently was looking for an option for my cousin for 10k, finally settled for Redmi 9 Prime. Poco M2 is the same as 9 Prime but with 6GB RAM. M2 will be on sale for 10.5k in FK during the upcoming sale, so maybe grab that.
