These days, everyone seems to be either sporting a Mi smartphone or gearing up to buy one. We see endless lines stretching around the block eagerly awaiting the launch of a new model. Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has acquired considerable popularity in a highly contentious and fast-growing market. According to recent industry estimates, over 30% of smartphone sales in India are dominated by Xiaomi. Although they owe most of the credit to their competitive pricing strategy, there are still other reasons Xiaomi was able to break Samsung’s six-year dominance as the most popular smartphone brand in 2018.
With the launch of the Redmi Note series, the budget smartphone trend sparked. Much like the iconic Redmi note 3 and Redmi note 5, the Redmi Note 7 followed suit.
Attractive and strong built
The Redmi Note 7 is available in three vibrant colours. The glass back gives a premium edge to the plastic body. Boasting Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both sides and offering splash protection with the P2i nano-coating, this Redmi Note is a relief to the 28% of smartphone users who tend to damage their phones frequently. The stats may come across as surprising but are quite true. The thick sides are an added advantage allowing stronger grip. For all the butter-fingered smartphone users out there, the Redmi Note 7 will come as a boon.
The features of Redmi Note 7 include good placement of power and volume buttons as well as the headphone socket and the USB Type-C port while that of the notification LED at the bottom of the screen is not so good. The placement of the headphone socket at the top, the infrared blaster compatible with the Mi remote app and the Type-C port introduction in the Redmi series are highly appreciated. The loudspeaker is fairly good. The selfie camera is housed in the dewdrop notch. The integration of the Nano-Sim and the microSD card in a single tray is debatable. The dissatisfaction is largely due to the absence of a dedicated slot for each as available in the previous smartphones in the series as well as the lack of aesthetic appeal. The 6.3-inch full HD display is equipped with 450nits for comfortable viewing in daylight.
The Redmi Note 7 specifications have been fairly good at the offered price. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC does its work quite well in terms of performance. While the processor is efficient, the MIUI 10 software system is tedious to deal with. The promotional spam and frequent advertisements can become a nuisance. Though there is a little relief since it is possible to disable most of them. The Redmi Note 7 features a plethora of sensors, namely, face unlock, fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and gyroscope. There is also a swipe gesture to activate single-hand operation mode. Other Redmi Note 7 specifications are dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5, multiple satellite navigation systems, dual-band Wi-F and FM radio.
Camera and Battery
The Redmi Note 7 camera features a 13-megapixel front camera and a 12+2 megapixel rear camera. The camera AI, the depth sensor and the edge detector add to a great photographic experience. The front camera is commendable owing to adequate beautification effects and bokeh effect. Despite impeccable picture quality while using both the rear and front camera, the Redmi Note 7 camera review is that it could not keep up in the video quality. The Redmi Note 7 boasts a 4000mAh battery equipped with a Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 fast-charging standard. It is safe to say that the smartphone will work efficiently for an entire day on a single charge cycle. It is dismaying that the bundled charger available with the smartphone is a 10W charger which is not suitable for the fast charging feature.
The Redmi Note 7 is priced at Rs. 9,999 with the highest variant being priced at Rs. 11,999. The smartphone is a reasonably fine deal considering the plethora of features offered by other smartphones priced under Rs. 15,000.
