Xiaomi is back with another special mid-range phone, and I’m telling you this one has got me just about as excited as I was for the Xiaomi Pocophone F1, we are nasphones.com and this is our Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Full Review .
the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 looks quite similar to other mid-range phones we’ve seen recently, but its specs pretty much blow out any of the competition in his price range .
there’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, but this frame is made of plastic, don’t let that put you off though, it doesn’t feel cheap and since it’s a bit glossy it blends in quite well .
overall it’s comfortable in the hand though since there is no curvature in the glass, the whole design feels a bit thick, and it definitely has some weight to it .
we have the tone down black model here but there are some snazzier color options available, Xiaomi has big claims for the durability of this phone and they’ve posted videos of them using it to smash things like walnuts, not sure how that translates to real life though .
the screen of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 is a 6.3 inch IPS LCD with a 1080p resolution, it features fairly thin side bezels but both the chin and the upper bezel are a bit on the thick side as expected of this price point .
the water-drop notch cutout at the top is quite minimal though I didn’t see any options to mask it with a black bar, we did notice a bit of backlight bleed around the notch and upper bezel too, but it’s only really visible if there’s a white screen .
when watching content we were surprised by how good this display looks, at 409 PPI content looks nice and sharp, and the blacks are quite decent, the color accuracy isn’t the best, but is OK . Read More : Huawei Mate 20 X Unboxing And Key Features
the panel is plenty bright, at 479 nits at the maximum, however it’s a bit reflective and leaves more to be desired as far as sunlight legibility goes .
as an LCD there’s no option for an always-on display but there is a notification LED, it’s actually located on the chin a bit confusing at first but you get used to it .
for audio the redmi note has a single bottom firing loudspeaker, next to the USB C port, it’s actually impressive it’s quite loud and sounds clean at those high volumes as well .
the 3.5 millimeter jack is located at the top and with headphones plugged in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has some of the loudest output in the market .
there is some distortion but all in all it’s very good, and you get FM radio here as well, if you want you can expand the storage beyond the standard 64 gigs via micro sd .
so you can keep more media on your phone however this will take up the second SIM slot, the rear mounted fingerprint reader is lightning fast to recognize you and unlock the phone as we’ve come to expect from Xiaomi . Read More : Realme 3 Full Review
there’s also will face unlock option it’s a bit less secure though some people find it more convenient, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 runs Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 10 interface over the latest android 9 pi .
there’s no app drawer in MIUI 10, all of the apps are on the home-screen, the task switcher has been revamped, now showing all of your open apps in a vertical stack for at a time .
going left takes you to the app vault, that gives you quick access to commonly use apps, notes and news, since there’s an IR blaster you can control appliances through the me remote app, if you want to .
and of course you can opt use gesture navigation as well, the style is similar to the one made popular on Apple’s iOS, performance-wise we weren’t disappointed by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, it has a snapdragon 616 chipset along with 4 gigs of ram .
we didn’t notice any lag or hiccups,and there were no throttling issues when benchmarking or gaming, overall it has some of the best performance in the current mid-range category .
the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7’s battery is quite large at 4000 milliamp hours, and we expected some pretty good battery life here, again we weren’t disappointed, it scores an excellent endurance rating of a hundred and eight hours in our proprietary tests .Read More : Is the Samsung Galaxy S10 Worth It
as far as charging goes the included 10 watt charger was able to charge from 0 to 30% in half an hour, not too impressive, but there is a bright side, the phone supports quick charge for so if you can find one of those charges you’ll be in good shape .
the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has a pretty stacked spec sheets, and on top of the list is the camera at 48 megapixels and F1.8, is paired with a 5 megapixel depth sensing camera for portrait mode .
although the sensor is 48 megapixels because of his quad Bayer arrangement in pixel binning the output of the camera is actually 12 megapixels, but you can opt for the full 48 in pro mode .
however these end up noisier so better stick to the defaults, in broad daylight 12 megapixel photos are consistently quite good, there’s plenty of detail, good contrast and almost no noise . Read More : Full Samsung Galaxy S10 And S10 Plus Review
the colours might not be to everyone’s tastes though, they’re quite punchy, and not really true to life, we also do have some complaints about the exposure, the auto mode returns somewhat darker images than we would prefer .
luckily the HDR does fix this when turned on images come out noticeably brighter, but may start to look washed out, in portrait mode the results are surprisingly good, in fact we’ve seen worse portraits on way more expensive phones .
the detail is nice while the edge detection is stellar, the D focusing effect isn’t as strong as we’ve seen on other phones though, we were also quite impressed by the image quality during nighttime shooting .
there’s no prominent noise, details are good and light sources appear to be rather well preserved, the pixel bending technology a lesson notes having to snap brighter exposures, with higher ISO than previous Xiaomi phones, without increasing noise .
there is a dedicated night mode too, it really makes a difference where we’re storing the highlights and bringing out the shadows, but you can get most of these benefits from just using HDR in normal mode, and that’s more convenient too .
the front-facing camera is 13 megapixels with fixed focus, if you hit the focus sweet spot in about an arm’s length some fees come out quite nice, with good detail .
the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7’s video options are quite limited just 1080p at either 30 or 60 FPS, dynamic range is a bit narrow, the contrast is nice . Read More : Moto G7 And G7 Plus key Features
videos do appear to be a bit noisy though, even when there’s sufficient light, however we were disappointed to see that there is no 4k option here, as a snapdragon 616 is perfectly capable of handling it .
we found that you can shoot with no problems if you download a third-party app like open camera, this means Xiaomi probably disabled 4k video on purpose .
so the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, with this guy xiaomi is new red mesa brand is off to a nice start, it really checks all of the boxes, you got the great build, the performance, a camera, the battery life and a low price .
basically all of the ingredients you need for a killer mid-range phone, now as far as downsize go, there is no quick charger in the box, and there’s no 4k video recording option, although the chipset does support it .
and there’s no NFC in case you needed that for mobile payments, but regardless we haven’t been this excited about a mid-range phone in a while .
for around 150 euros you get a device and not only meet your expectations for a budget phone, but goes above and beyond, in some ways even approaching flagship level quality .
