Redmi Note 7 in analysis, the new "flagship killer" of the mid-range

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 or "Redmi Note 7" to dry. It does not matter, it does not matter. From now on, Xiaomi's mid-range is considered a totally independent brand. Something like Huawei "Honor" phones. And it is not for less, since we are facing a smartphone that shines with its own light, as we commented in this recent post about the best Chinese mobiles of 2019.

In today's review we analyze Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7, the new flagship in which the rest of the range competitors will be seen from now on. It is at the height?

Redmi Note 7 in review, premium mid-range with Snapdragon 660, 48MP camera and 4,000mAh battery

As is usual, the greatest attraction of this terminal lies in its price. For 200 scratched euros or less, we have a really consistent phone that delivers both in performance as well as in camera and autonomy. But let's go by parts ...

Design and display

The Redmi Note 7 mounts a screen of 6.3 inches with Full HD + resolution (2340 x 1080p) and a pixel density of 409ppi. It mounts a body with a metallic casing and glass that give it a quite premium touch for a mid-range, and in general it can be determined that its appearance is the most attractive. Partly thanks to a nearly bezel-less screen that takes up most of the front. Panel that is also enhanced by the now usual notch shaped like a drop of water.

At the design level there are not many drawbacks that we can put to the terminal: it looks elegant and its weight is adequate. With 186 grams, in the case of a 6.3-inch mobile, we can say that we are facing a light terminal - and a bit large - that does not bother in the pocket.

It has dimensions of 75.2 x 159.2 x 8.1mm and is available in black, fuchsia and metallic blue.

Power and performance

If we delve into the guts of the Note 7 we find a very sweet hardware. We have a SoC Snapdragon 660 Octa Core at 2.2GHz with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable via SD. A combo that is hard to beat when it comes to affordable mobiles. It should be mentioned, of course, that there are also variants with 3GB + 32GB and another with 128GB of internal space (with its corresponding price increase or decrease). The operating system is Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 customization layer.

For performance purposes against well-oiled machinery with more than enough power to pull on a day-to-day basis and offer a smooth experience. To give us an idea, it has a benchmarking result in Antutu of 144,599 points. A figure that slightly exceeds in performance the Xiaomi Mi A2, the other great mid-range of the Asian giant. It's not bad at all.

Camera and battery

While the performance of the Redmi Note 7 is quite equal to that of the Mi A2, where they are not at all alike is in the camera. There the Note 7 gives a sovereign beating to the A2. On the one hand, it features a rear camera with a 48MP main lens with f / 1.8 aperture and a pixel size of 0.800 µm, accompanied by a 5MP secondary lens with 1.120 µm. The selfie camera for its part has a resolution of 13MP with aperture f / 2.2 and a pixel size of 1,120 µm.

As far as autonomy is concerned, the terminal mounts a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 fast charge via USB type C connector. A battery that offers a duration of use of between 1 and 2 days.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has a dual SIM slot (nano + nano), a 3.5mm minijack for headphones and a Bluetooth 5.0 connection. It also has dual band WiFi (2.4G / 5G), WiFi AC and USB OTG, FM radio. In addition to infrared and VoLTE sensor.

Price and availability

As of this writing, the Redmi Note 7 is priced at approximately € 199.00 on sites like Amazon, in its standard 4GB + 64GB version. You can also find cheaper models in its light version of 3GB + 32GB around 170 euros (about 190 USD to change) in other sites such as AliExpress.

In general, a terminal with an excellent value for money and specifications that, although they invite to focus the interest in the photographic section, are not left behind in what really matters, which is the performance and the duration of the battery. Therefore, if to all this we add a good screen and a modern and elegant design, we have one of the most important proposals of the year within the mid-range of mobile telephony.
