We tested the phone in 4G network and found that it does a good job with the main task of phone calls. Voice quality is not ideal, but the connection is always stable.

What we have waited so long battery capacity of 4000 mAh.

Very nice update a large 4000 mAh battery. Having increased its capacity by 1000 mAh compared to the Redmi 6, the phone easily survives a day and a half of active use. If you do not like to play games or watch videos on your smartphone, then it will easily last you two days. But charging takes longer than you would like the charger for 5V 2A will charge your smartphone to 100% for 130 minutes.

Picture and sound quality are fine. What can not be said about the stabilization is simply not there. So we hold the smartphone firmly, without unnecessary shaking. Below is an example.

Redmi 7 on minimum can be bought for 9,990. For this amount, the future owner will get 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. The internal storage can be expanded by a Micro SD card, but there is nothing that can be done about the RAM. Therefore, if you buy Redmi 7, then only in the average configuration: 3 32 GB for 12 thousand.

Convenient shell, good cameras and confident hardware from Qualcomm are all nice options that make the smartphone comfortable to use. On the downside the company is a stubborn unwillingness to implement the modern USB-C connector and NFC-module, the mass arrival of which in Russia has long been awaited.

Performance and System

The main “brain” Redmi 7A. octa-core processor Snapdragon 439, working in conjunction with a video gas pedal Adreno 505. This chipset can hardly be called a high-performance, but it copes with the basic tasks. You will be able to sit comfortably on the Internet and social networks, use most applications and play simple games. If necessary, the phone can pull up even demanding toys: thanks to the HD resolution on it you can play PUBG and World of Tanks Blitz with small lags on low and medium graphics settings, respectively.

In the Antutu benchmark Redmi 7A scores a little over 75 thousand points, and most importantly, the smartphone does not lose power under load. In a trot-test, overall system performance drops by only 8%.

The redmobile has the latest version of the Android 9 Pie operating system with the branded MIUI 10 user interface. Here I note that just a few years ago, devices over 100 were unbearably slow, even when switching between desktops. But the Redmi 7 confirms that it is now possible to use even an ultra-budget device comfortably: even if there are micro-lags, but in general the system works surprisingly quickly. As already mentioned, the smartphone copes with the tasks of non-demanding users 100%.

Performance and OS

The Redmi 7 is equipped with a Snapdragon 636 chipset, it is a 14-nanometer processor with an Adreno 506 graphics gas pedal that runs at a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. In comparison with the sixth generation of the series, which was built on the basis of Helio P22, the performance increase was quite significant. In AnTuTu and GeekBench tests the phone shows the following results:

It is worth saying right away that you should buy the Xiaomi Redmi 7 in a 32/3GB configuration. The cost difference between it and the 16/2 variant isn’t so significant as to compromise on the amount of RAM, of which 2GB is frankly not enough in 2019. Regardless of which option you choose, permanent memory can be expanded with a microSD card up to 512GB, and there’s a separate slot for it.

Considering the price. this is a fast enough smartphone, the use of which does not cause any negative. Inteace works fast, no special slowdowns or problems in the work of the device are not noticed. In games, thanks to the less demanding to resources HD screen, Redmi 7 performs better than smartphones with similar hardware and FullHD display. Almost all heavy projects it confidently pulls on medium-high graphics settings. In PUBG available by default preset “balance” in which the game runs with a stable comfortable frame rate, and the phone after 30 minutes of gameplay does not heat up more than 38 degrees.

The smartphone runs MIUI version, which is covered by the Android 9 Pie. The pros and cons of Xiaomi branded interface is well known to all, it is a very functional shell, which allows you to fine-tune the appearance of the system and has a lot of additional features, including convenient gesture control. The main drawback. advertising in standard applications and some menu items, but following a simple algorithm it can be completely turned off.

A huge screen

The novelty can be safely attributed to the phablets, as it became the owner of the IPS-display diagonal 6.26 inches. All the frames have become incredibly narrow, due to which the aspect ratio has become equal to 19:9.

The affiliation to the “budget” is evidenced by the low resolution matrix, which is only 1520×720 pixels. Of course, it is impossible to call the screen very bright and high contrast, but it copes with its main duties well. In the sun it practically does not glare, however, brightness in direct sunlight is not always at a good level. NTSC color gamut coverage is 84%.

The control buttons are placed in the on-screen position, which allowed us to significantly reduce the width of the lower frame. On top there is a small drop-shaped cutout, where the front camera is located. It’s almost inconspicuous and doesn’t take up valuable screen space.

Display quality

The diagonal screen is 5.45 inches, so it is convenient to use the device. It does not tend to slip out of your hands, and the size of the display module allows one-handed operation.

Solid display resolution should not be expected, the figure is 1440×720 pixels at a density of 295 ppi. NTSC color gamut is rather modest. 70,8%. In practice, the screen performs decently. It accurately and naturally reproduces colors, no complaints about the level of contrast and clarity. IPS-matrix can not boast of excellent behavior in the sun, the picture does become more faded when exposed to the sunlight.

Aspect ratio is 18:9, which is also a good result. The side frames are thin, but the top and bottom. noticeably wider.

Retained the options of automatic brightness adjustment, blocking of harmful blue radiation, change of color temperature.

The camera is acceptable in this price class

The main camera Xiaomi Redmi 7 12 MP (f/2.2), and an additional 2 megapixel. There’s LED backlighting and automatic HDR mode.

The camera does great in most conditions and automatically selects settings, so you get pretty good photos. In the case of night photography lens aperture is not enough, it is simply too dark, photos are of average quality. In low light, the detail of the pictures decreases, as well as sharpness.

Thanks to the optional lens and artificial intelligence, you can create photos with blurry backgrounds. However, cheap Huawei smartphones handle this feature better.

8 megapixel selfie camera (f/2.0). It can also record FullHD video (1080p). There’s even automatic HDR, Beautify 4.0. Self-portraits look really good. The work of the front camera does not cause criticism from users.

The photo app offers several filters as well as additional capture modes, including panoramic, portrait or manual modes.
