Redmi Note 7 review

The motto of the Redmi line (and now a separate brand) is simple - high technology should be affordable. Redmi smartphones usually cost up to 20 thousand rubles and have the characteristics of devices for a higher price. Redmi focuses on an advanced audience that knows how to compare different models and then, after a long search, choose the best one.

If we talk about Redmi Note, then these devices have always had three important qualities for which buyers loved them: a capacious battery, a good screen and an affordable price. These advantages are also valid for Note 7, Xiaomi also tried to add a good camera and an interesting design to them.

Design, dimensions, controls

Usually, there is not much to say about the design of Redmi Note, smartphones of this line used to look like most other faceless devices. In Redmi Note 7, they tried to work on the design to make the device look more interesting: for example, they made the back cover glass, added a beautiful gradient, finally got rid of the terrible vertical camera stylized as iPhones, and, in general, they did well. Yes, you won’t surprise anyone with a glass case now, but at least it looks more original than another plastic back cover.

In addition, in addition to boring black, there will be blue and red versions on sale. The latter looks amazing at all, at the presentation they separately noticed that this is just a bright body, and not a color oriented towards girls.

On the bottom you can see the Type-C port, a microphone and an external speaker, on the top you can see a mini-jack for headphones and an infrared port.

Pay attention to how neatly placed the speaker, it looks like a thin, barely noticeable slot and takes up almost no space on the case. The front camera is inscribed in the display, as Xiaomi noted at the presentation, the season of bangs is over.

Smartphone dimensions - 160 x 76 x 8.1 mm, weight - 186 grams. I was pleasantly surprised by how the device lies in the hand, after all, you expect more thickness and heaviness from a smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery. There are no complaints about the assembly, there are no creaks, gaps and backlashes.

Of the differences between the display and the previous generation, the transition to a teardrop notch immediately catches the eye, as a result, the total screen area has slightly increased. However, the screen itself has also become better: they raised the maximum brightness, viewing angles, and improved color reproduction. In general, the impressions from the display are only positive.

In bright sunlight, the image fades, but at night it is quite comfortable to use the minimum brightness. In the settings, you can enable a separate reading mode and adjust the color rendering of the screen. Both modes have very fine detailed settings with an adjustment slider, so those who like to customize the display will be satisfied.

I really love the Redmi Note line for a long time. Note 7 in daily use mode easily provides you with 5 hours of display on. This includes mail, social networks, instant messengers, mobile Internet and enabled synchronization. I have about 2.5 hours of screen on per day, so in my mode, Note 7 needs to be charged every two days. By the way, the smartphone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging, you get 60% in the first half hour of a charge and a full charge in about an hour and a half.

Also let me remind you that MIUI has a huge number of power saving settings, you can configure activity and individual permissions for specific applications, which will save a few extra percent of the battery charge.

Memory, chipset, performance

It's nice that at a price of 14 thousand in Redmi Note 7 they did not save on the chipset and put SD660 in it, and not SD632, as larger manufacturers did in more expensive models. However, to be honest, I didn’t feel much difference in performance, with the exception of numbers in benchmarks. The device is nimble, the interface works smoothly, scrolling in applications is also without jamming. You can run most games at maximum settings.

Camera

< /table>

Before describing the capabilities of the camera, let me quote a piece from the article from the Redmi Note 7 presentation:

In December, Samsung and Sony announced their new 48-megapixel camera modules. The size of the sensors themselves was quite large - 1/2 inch, but the pixel size was only 0.8 microns. But the pixels in the modules of both companies are able to read information from neighboring pixels and thus create a 12-megapixel image with large 1.6 micron pixels. By the way, the iPhone XS and Pixel 3 have a pixel size of 1.4 microns. In theory, such an adaptation will allow the smartphone to take good quality pictures in low light conditions, and AI, which is already in the MIUI proprietary camera, will immediately come to the rescue.

Redmi Note 7

Basically, we have two modes in which we need to shoot on Redmi Note 7. In one, we shoot in low light to get a brighter picture at 12 megapixels. The second one is used for clear shots with high detail at a resolution of 48 megapixels.

In practice, night and evening shots using AI seemed to me very overexposed. However, you can evaluate them yourself.

But in low light, the device did a good job.

На презентации много говорили о хорошей детализации с большим разрешением, но найти режим съемки камеры в 48-мегапиксельном режиме оказалось не так-то просто. Он был спрятан в настройках Pro-режима. В целом, днем кадры и правда получаются неплохими.

А вот три примера дневной съемки с включенным ИИ.

I was surprised to see that the video camera only records in FHD, but at 60 fps. In general, the picture is not bad, considering the price of the smartphone. Below are two examples of videos, in the afternoon and in the evening.

The camera interface is standard, familiar to MIUI. Switching between modes is done using horizontal gestures, the settings call is in the upper right corner.

Multimedia Features

The voice quality of the smartphone is good. You and your interlocutor hear each other perfectly. Let me remind you that Redmi Note 7 still has a standard headphone minijack, so you don’t need to buy special adapters or adapters. The sound in the headphones is standard, typical for all devices in this price segment. There is only one external speaker, it is located to the right of the Type-C port. It has an average volume, in my opinion, it sounds a little quieter than the closest competitors.

Program features

The smartphone runs on Android 9.0 and MIUI 10.2. We talked about MIUI 10 in a separate article, if you haven’t read it yet, I recommend clicking on the link below.

I generally like MIUI, it's a fancy and functional shell. However, certain settings are required before using it. For example, pop-up notifications and notifications on the lock screen are disabled by default for messengers. Therefore, after installing the same Telegram, do not forget to enable them in the application settings. Also, MIUI 10 checks each application after installation with its own antivirus and shows an additional notification. This is also disabled in the settings.

Impressions

Smartphone sales in Russia begin on March 28. The cost of the younger version 3 + 32 GB will be 14 thousand rubles. At first, when buying in Xiaomi branded stores, you will receive Mi Band 3 as a gift for your smartphone. And from 10 am to 1 pm on March 28, Redmi Note 7 can be bought for 11 thousand on Tmall and mi.com, however, it is not known how many such smartphones are. will, or they will be sold out in the first minute. Of the additional benefits, I would like to note an extended warranty for 1.5 years.

Redmi Note 7

For my money, Redmi Note 7 turned out to be excellent. We worked on the appearance, added an interesting solution in the camera, did not raise the price (I remember that Redmi Note 5 cost 18 thousand rubles at the start of sales), retained a good display and a capacious battery. Unless NFC was added.

Competitors

Samsung Galaxy A30. A competitor from Samsung costs 2,000 more, but it has an NFC module and a more interesting AMOLED display.

Redmi Note 7

Huawei P Smart 2019. It also has an NFC module, but a smaller battery capacity (3400 mAh), and the camera here is not 48-megapixel. At the same time, it costs 800 rubles more.

Redmi Note 7

Honor 10 Lite. Another similar competitor, now from Honor. It is very reminiscent of the same P Smart 2019: less battery capacity, but there is NFC. It costs 15 thousand.

As you can see, all worthy competitors are a bit more expensive, but they have NFC modules. And this, it seems to me, will be decisive in the choice. If you want a cheaper and 48-megapixel camera - take Redmi Note 7. Ready to pay extra for NFC and not so sensitive to the number of megapixels - look at competitors.

I generally like MIUI, it's a fancy and functional shell. However, certain settings are required before using it. For example, pop-up notifications and notifications on the lock screen are disabled by default for messengers. Therefore, after installing the same Telegram, do not forget to enable them in the application settings. Also, MIUI 10 checks each application after installation with its own antivirus and shows an additional notification. This is also disabled in the settings.

Smartphone sales in Russia begin on March 28. The cost of the younger version 3 + 32 GB will be 14 thousand rubles. At first, when buying in Xiaomi branded stores, you will receive Mi Band 3 as a gift for your smartphone. And from 10 am to 1 pm on March 28, Redmi Note 7 can be bought for 11 thousand on Tmall and mi.com, however, it is not known how many such smartphones are. will, or they will be sold out in the first minute. Of the additional benefits, I would like to note an extended warranty for 1.5 years.

Redmi Note 7

For my money, Redmi Note 7 turned out to be excellent. We worked on the appearance, added an interesting solution in the camera, did not raise the price (I remember that Redmi Note 5 cost 18 thousand rubles at the start of sales), retained a good display and a capacious battery. Unless NFC was added.

Competitors

Samsung Galaxy A30. A competitor from Samsung costs 2,000 more, but it has an NFC module and a more interesting AMOLED display.

Redmi Note 7

Huawei P Smart 2019. It also has an NFC module, but a smaller battery capacity (3400 mAh), and the camera here is not 48-megapixel. At the same time, it costs 800 rubles more.

Redmi Note 7

Honor 10 Lite. Another similar competitor, now from Honor. It is very reminiscent of the same P Smart 2019: less battery capacity, but there is NFC. It costs 15 thousand.

As you can see, all worthy competitors are a bit more expensive, but they have NFC modules. And this, it seems to me, will be decisive in the choice. If you want a cheaper and 48-megapixel camera - take Redmi Note 7. Ready to pay extra for NFC and not so sensitive to the number of megapixels - look at competitors.

Redmi Note 7 review

The motto of the Redmi line (and now a separate brand) is simple - high technology should be affordable. Redmi smartphones usually cost up to 20 thousand rubles and have the characteristics of devices for a higher price. Redmi focuses on an advanced audience that knows how to compare different models and then, after a long search, choose the best one.

If we talk about Redmi Note, then these devices have always had three important qualities for which buyers loved them: a capacious battery, a good screen and an affordable price. These advantages are also valid for Note 7, Xiaomi also tried to add a good camera and an interesting design to them.

Design, dimensions, controls

Usually, there is not much to say about the design of Redmi Note, smartphones of this line used to look like most other faceless devices. In Redmi Note 7, they tried to work on the design to make the device look more interesting: for example, they made the back cover glass, added a beautiful gradient, finally got rid of the terrible vertical camera stylized as iPhones, and, in general, they did well. Yes, you won’t surprise anyone with a glass case now, but at least it looks more original than another plastic back cover.

In addition, in addition to boring black, there will be blue and red versions on sale. The latter looks amazing at all, at the presentation they separately noticed that this is just a bright body, and not a color oriented towards girls.

On the right side there is a power button and a volume rocker, on the left side there is a tray for two nanoSIM cards and a memory card.

On the bottom you can see the Type-C port, a microphone and an external speaker, on the top you can see a mini-jack for headphones and an infrared port.

Pay attention to how neatly placed the speaker, it looks like a thin, barely noticeable slot and takes up almost no space on the case. The front camera is inscribed in the display, as Xiaomi noted at the presentation, the season of bangs is over.

Smartphone dimensions - 160 x 76 x 8.1 mm, weight - 186 grams. I was pleasantly surprised by how the device lies in the hand, after all, you expect more thickness and heaviness from a smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery. There are no complaints about the assembly, there are no creaks, gaps and backlashes.

Screen

Specifications Value Screen diagonal 6.3 inches Display resolution 2340 x 1080 pixels PPI value 409 Matrix type IPS Protective coating Corning Gorilla Glass 5 Oleophobic coating Yes Automatic brightness control Yes Multi-touch support Present, up to ten simultaneous touches

Of the differences between the display and the previous generation, the transition to a teardrop notch immediately catches the eye, as a result, the total screen area has slightly increased. However, the screen itself has also become better: they raised the maximum brightness, viewing angles, and improved color reproduction. In general, the impressions of the display are only positive.

In bright sunlight, the image fades, but at night it is quite comfortable to use the minimum brightness. In the settings, you can enable a separate reading mode and adjust the color rendering of the screen. Both modes have very fine detailed settings with an adjustment slider, so those who like to adjust the display to themselves will be satisfied.

Battery

Specifications Value Battery capacity 4000 mAh Battery type Non-removable, Li-Ion Battery life in HD video mode at maximum brightness (Airplane mode on) 17 hours Discharge in sleep mode (12 hours, display off, Wi-Fi on) 2 %

I really love the Redmi Note line for a long time. Note 7 in daily use mode easily provides you with 5 hours of display on. This includes mail, social networks, instant messengers, mobile Internet and enabled synchronization. I have about 2.5 hours of screen on per day, so in my mode, Note 7 needs to be charged every two days. By the way, the smartphone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging, you get 60% in the first half hour of a charge and a full charge in about an hour and a half.

Also let me remind you that MIUI has a huge number of power saving settings, you can configure activity and individual permissions for specific applications, which will save a few extra percent of the battery charge.

Memory, chipset, performance

Specifications Value Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Processor Octa-core, 2.2 GHz Video accelerator Adreno 512 RAM 3 or 4 GB Internal storage capacity 32, 64 or 128 GB Memory card slot Yes, hybrid

It's nice that at a price of 14 thousand in Redmi Note 7 they did not save on the chipset and put SD660 in it, and not SD632, as larger manufacturers did in more expensive models. However, to be honest, I didn’t feel much difference in performance, with the exception of numbers in benchmarks. The device is nimble, the interface works smoothly, scrolling in applications is also without jamming. You can run most games at maximum settings.

The body heats up only during gaming and benchmarking, the rest of the time it is either slightly warm or cool https://cars45.com/listing/peugeot/505/1995.

Communications

Interfaces Wi-Fi available Yes, b/g/n/ac, dual band Bluetooth Yes, 5.0, A2DP GPS Cold start takes about 3 seconds Mobile data 2G: 850/900/1800/1900 3G: 850/900/1700 /1900/2100 4G: b3/b7/b20/b38 Dual SIM, one USB On-The-Go radio Yes NFC No Infrared Yes FM radio Yes, only works with headphones

Let's start with the good: the smartphone supports dual-band Wi-Fi and the .ac standard, retained support for infrared, and the application for emulating remote controls is already preinstalled. The GPS is also fast and the Bluetooth version is 5.0. But there is no NFC in this model, although some competitors have it for the same price.

Camera

Specifications Value Main camera 48 + 5 megapixels, f/1.8, 1.6µm, electronic stabilization Front camera 13 megapixels, background blur

Before describing the capabilities of the camera, let me quote a piece from the article from the Redmi Note 7 presentation:

In December, Samsung and Sony announced their new 48-megapixel camera modules. The size of the sensors themselves was quite large - 1/2 inch, but the pixel size was only 0.8 microns. But the pixels in the modules of both companies are able to read information from neighboring pixels and thus create a 12-megapixel image with large 1.6 micron pixels. By the way, the iPhone XS and Pixel 3 have a pixel size of 1.4 microns. In theory, such an adaptation will allow the smartphone to take good quality pictures in low light conditions, and AI, which is already in the MIUI proprietary camera, will immediately come to the rescue.

Basically, we have two modes in which we need to shoot on Redmi Note 7. In one, we shoot in low light to get a brighter picture at 12 megapixels. The second one is used for clear shots with high detail at a resolution of 48 megapixels.

In practice, night and evening shots using AI seemed to me very overexposed. However, you can evaluate them yourself.

But in low light, the device did a good job.

At the presentation, there was a lot of talk about good detail at high resolution, but finding the camera's shooting mode in 48-megapixel mode was not so easy. It was hidden in the Pro mode settings. In general, during the day, the shots really turn out to be quite good.

Here are three examples of AI-enabled daytime photography.

And an example of a selfie on the front camera.

I was surprised to see that the video camera only records in FHD, but at 60 fps. In general, the picture is not bad, considering the price of the smartphone. Below are two examples of videos, in the afternoon and in the evening.

The camera interface is standard, familiar to MIUI. Switching between modes is done using horizontal gestures, the settings call is in the upper right corner.

Multimedia Features

The voice quality of the smartphone is good. You and your interlocutor hear each other perfectly. Let me remind you that Redmi Note 7 still has a standard headphone minijack, so you don’t need to buy special adapters or adapters. The sound in the headphones is standard, typical for all devices in this price segment. There is only one external speaker, it is located to the right of the Type-C port. It has an average volume, in my opinion, it sounds a little quieter than the closest competitors.

Program features

The smartphone runs on Android 9.0 and MIUI 10.2. We talked about MIUI 10 in a separate article, if you haven’t read it yet, I recommend clicking on the link below.
