Inside the Box
When you unravel the Redmi Note 7 box, you will find a USB-C cable, a wall plug, a Redmi Note 7 case protector and the Redmi Note 7 phone.
Design and Display
The first thing I noticed about the phone when I opened it was the design. The Redmi Note 7’ gradient finish is super catchy looking and one of the better looking phones out there. If you are tired of the old-school plain finish, then the Redmi Note 7 is a breath of fresh air.
The display also has a notch for the camera, which we will get to later. The back of the phone has a fingerprint sensor and two powerful cameras.
The right side of the phone has an on and off button and the volume rocker. It has a 3.5mm jack on the top. For those of you who were worried about this, then you can breathe a sigh of relief.
Features and Specifications
The processor that powers this phone is the very reliable Snapdragon 660 Octa-core Processor. It also has a dual-sim card slot for those of you who are particular about that.
It also has a nifty IR blaster located on top that makes this phone a remote control that can control your TV and other devices.
The OS that powers this phone is the MIUI 10 which is Xiaomi’s latest Android based OS that looks pretty nifty. It has some awesome basic setups like three finger gesture control and button setup at the bottom. It’s all completely under your control.
You can use split screen to simultaneously run two apps (Multitasking much?). Most of the apps that are preloaded on this phone are useful ones like Google Play Store among others.
The speaker on the phone is something to write about as it is very loud and great to listen to.
The front facing selfie camera is a 13-megapixel shooter that sits nicely on the drop notch. It has a f/2.0 aperture that can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. But the camera that needs to be spoken about is the one in the back.
The primary camera is a dual camera setup with a 48-megapixel shooter with a f/1.8 aperture and a 5MP f/2.2 aperture. The 5MP camera is a depth sensor lens. It has a 2X zoom lens which can capture farther objects with relative ease.
So how is Xiaomi able to make this one of the best smartphone cameras going around? The Note 7 has a technology that captures 4 pixels and makes one super pixel to give the picture a very high quality.
The battery on the Redmi Note 7 is a 4000 mAh whopper that supports quick charge.
If you are looking for a phone with great allround performance, then the Redmi Note 7 delivers and delivers pretty good.
It has a super awesome processor that ensures super quick speed and seamless movements across apps. It enables multi tasking and also numerous other gestures which wouldn’t be possible without the processor.
The display is big and sizeable enough to enjoy the games and watch TV shows and stuff like that. The massive battery will ensure that you have enough juice for about a day and slightly more. It’s enabled with the Quick Charge 4 feature that ensures you can charge your battery quickly without any fuss.
The camera is what will make you take this phone home. Its the tipping point. The camera is fantastic and it might not be as good as the iPhone 11 Pro, but it’s right up there competing with the best of the best.
Lastly and the most important aspect of this phone is the price. The price to specs ratio is off the charts. For the amount you pay, you get so much more in terms of value.
Will the Redmi Note 7 be a hit? No, it’s going to be a blockbuster hit!
- Big screen size
- Great cameras (Front and Back)
- Solid processor
- Great battery with Quick Charge
- Beautiful design
- Difficult to keep clean because of the fingerprints on the back
- The display has a very slight purple-ish hue.
