📱Xiaomi Redmi 7 – The ultimate 2021 Review – Best price in UAE

The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi 7

The Xiaomi Redmi 7 is an older model, having been launched in the middle of 2019. The overall quality of this smartphone is average; as it is very affordable it can be a good choice just to save a little.

Main results

The Xiaomi Redmi 7 arrived on the market with Android 9 and in all this time it has not received any updates and is unlikely to receive one. Although it is 2 steps behind the last Android released, for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices, it is still fairly recent.
The 6.2″ screen with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels has an appearance in line with that of its competitors, but is very quick to react to commands.
The Xiaomi Redmi 7 battery is standard: in our usage scenario, its 4000 mAh allow it to reach 33 hours, which is on average.
The 20.6 GB of actual available internal memory (32 GB declared) may not be enough to store our data, but we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered rather robust.
Like most models in this price range, it is not a very powerful phone: it is therefore not suitable for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games, but still does not have problems with everyday activities.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Camera

Xiaomi Redmi 7 has two rear cameras (the main one is 12 Mp) which allow you to get just enough quality photos, unless in situations with little light where they are even poor.
This mobile phone has an 8 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so it is not possible to get good selfies.

  • It is one of the most affordable models
  • You can insert two SIMs at the same time
  • It is one of the best models for the price range
