The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi 7A

The Xiaomi Redmi 7A is not a very recent model, having been launched at the end 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 test results

The Xiaomi Redmi 7A arrived on the market with Android 9. In the meantime it has received updates and Android 10 is now available. Although a new version of Android has just been released, this version is still fairly recent.
This mobile phone is the new version of the Xiaomi Redmi 6a, already tested. This version has a higher camera resolution and faster processor.
The 5.5″ screen with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels has an appearance in line with that of its competitors, but is very quick to react to commands.
The Xiaomi Redmi 7A battery is standard: in our usage scenario, its 4000 mAh allow it to reach 31 hours, which is on average.
The 7.2 GB of actual available internal memory (16 GB declared) may not be enough to store our data, but we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It has suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite 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 has no problems with daily activities.
It is a dual SIM model, so it is possible to insert and use two SIMs at the same time.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Xiaomi Redmi 7A has a 12 Mp rear camera, which allows you to get just enough quality photos, unless in low light situations where they are even poor.
This mobile phone has a 5 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so you can’t get good selfies.
