redmi from about a month it is detached by Mom Xiaomi but he did it by releasing his first "independent" device. The first born in the RedMi house is just the RedMi Note 7 and we tried it with extreme curiosity. Here is the review of the RedMi Note 7.
I want to thank before starting Grossoshop for giving us the device. Remember that you can use the XTGS5 discount code in your cart to get an additional discount of 5 euros on your purchases.
The news always like, new air, change, curiosity to 1000 etc .. and, as the RedMi Note 7 is simply the seventh model of a well-known series of Xiaomi midrange for years now, this time something has changed.
RedMi takes off the wheels from the bike and starts pedaling, churning out the bike first device marked RedMi instead of Xiaomi and, instead of being content to follow the series with small hardware upgrades, it does so by inserting in what can be defined the RedMi flagship very interesting features.
RedMi Note 7 - Design
The RedMi Note 7 certainly does not stand out for originality and innovation, but the lines are definitely pleasing.
Standing out in the front is the Notch to drop which not only limits the typical damages of the notch but also confers a certainty elegance to the display.
The frames of the device are not very thin, they are harmonic, the upper frame is almost identical to the side ones, leaving only the lower line more “thick”.
The RedMi Note 7 is not exactly a cheese slice (8.1 mm) and, to increase its thickness, there is the photographic sensor that protrudes a lot of the body. Not even the silicone cover can hide or at least level the thickness of the camera.
Infrared port superior (iRda) e headphone jack they will make more happy and gripping USB Type C it begins to be the bare minimum to think of placing itself in the middle market.
Il weight of 186 grams it is certainly not feather but for a device from 6.3 inches of display we could not have expected much less.
RedMi Note 7 - Display
As already said the display is very wide, well 6.3 inches. It is not a Super AMOLED unit but the IPS technology used in this display is decidedly advanced.
Blacks do not regret the Super AMOLED much and the colors are brilliant.
The display resolution is FHD + (Full HD Plus) 1080 x 2340 pixels. It's not 4K but honestly in smartphones I haven't understood its usefulness yet unless you want to use them with CardBoard VR.
RedMi Note 7 - Performances
Le performances of the RedMi 7 Notes are in line with those of other Mid-Range. To make a comparison in the family does practically the same AnTuTu score of the Xiaomi Mi8 Lite. Too bad for the fact that the Sample arrived was the version from 3GB of RAM that, in the usus begin to be a little bit.
Here is a video of the AnTuTu performances of the RedMi 7 Notes.
RedMi Note 7 - Battery
La well battery 4000mah is one of the aspects that most satisfied me with this RedMi Note 7. With the passage of time I always appreciate more capacious batteries but not always software optimization is able to make the ampere of the battery in a worthy way.
In this case the battery is behaved very well. Already the first uses I noticed that I could get to the evening very comfortable and I wanted to try the battery life of the RedMi Note 7 with a "long" day without carrying the battery charger with me ... I know ... I know ... I'm a daredevil!
Well, the result was very good bringing me from 4: 30 to 22: 30 without problems with about 6 hours and a half of display lit., download of several applications from the Play Store, two connected SIM, download and installation of a MIUI update from 1.8GB and, icing on the cake also a couple of AnTuTu tests.
And if we add to this, the phone has begun to last even longer since the next reloads… well… .battery promoted with full marks.
RedMi Note 7 - Camera
In the RedMi Note 7 the main feature is definitely the camera. The main camera block (the back one) is formed by two cameras from 48mpx and 5mpx.
Yes, you got it right, 48 megapixel of camera with one focal F1.8 to capture maximum brightness and one camera from 5mpx to gain depth.
How are the photos taken by RedMi Note 7? I leave you to judge and then I will give you my opinion.
Here are the pictures.
How do you think the photos?
I liked them a lot, a short will be published soon photoconference with the Xiaomi Mi8, a little to see if this "mid-range" can compete with an effective top of the range in the photographic sector.
What struck me most about the camera is not so much the resolution (among other things, to access the resolution from 48mpx it is necessary to activate the option in camera settings in the PRO mode) but the light that manages to capture and the low noise on the photos at night.
I get a nice "Well done Xiaom ... .. RedMi !!!"
RedMi Note 7 - Software
The RedMi Note 7 it's not perfect. Unfortunately he has some magagna too. But in this case I would like to justify RedMi because the main shortcomings are not found as much on the phone hardware as on the software.
La MIUI 10.2 Stable for RedMi 7 Notes it is not exactly lightning. Despite the overall performances are definitely good every now and then we are faced with some stumbling software.
To this we must add the fact that, not being the GLOBAL version optimized for the Extra China market, also some features like GPS optimization for the Fix the satellites and a little' disappointing.
I tried unsuccessfully to browse with Google Map but the Fix of the satellites was, to say the least, fluctuating in fact navigation software unusable.
I am aware that these problems depend on the software and I hope that for the international launch, proceed to a nice rundown of FIX and optimizations.
RedMi Note 7 - Conclusions
What to say in conclusion, I loved the RedMi Note 7. I did not expect such a departure for the newly posted RedMi. But you know ... whoever stops is lost so I hope that soon RedMi will start pulling out devices that can be RIPE (someone said RedMi X?) as he did, he did and we hope will still be the mother Xiaomi.
And you? What do you think about this RedMi Note 7?
Please let us know in the comments.
Meanwhile, I leave you the video of our review ... make yourself comfortable ... it's long ... ...
The RedMi Note 7 is the first device of the neo-detached RedMi from mom Xiaomi. Part with a nice device. Important smartphone with its thumbs but balanced 6.3. Great battery and very good camera from 48mpx. But not everything is gold ...
