Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 review

01 February 2019
Redmi Note 7 lineup is the first one branded only as “Redmi” and the sub-brand company wants to come in strong. It advertises flagship-worthy build quality, great 48MP main camera on the back and powerful enough SoC no matter which Redmi 7 device you choose - the vanilla Redmi 7, the bigger Note 7 or the Pro. The one we have with us is the Redmi Note 7 - perhaps the most sought after model due to its low price and big screen.

It's awful. I have music on this device and it gets deleted without my permission, chrome sucks, and the thing has an own will

I'm surprised people think the day photos are good. They lack detail and look computer generated like from a video game. The snail pics look 2-dimensional.

I moved to this model from previously owning an old/cheaper LG Nexus 5X.The phone is good In almost everything BUT I am very disappointed with the camera to be honest.... I really miss the camera on the Nexus even for it being an older phone, it was amazing and I only changed it due to space capacity and other old specs.

Had this phone since it was locally released in our country and I loved it. It was very good and adequate for everything that I do daily, camera is superb and improves even more upon installing GCam. It has become a bit sluggish overtime with different updates and bloatwares. But slapping a new ROM gave it a new breath of life, it's snappy and good as new.

I've owned this phone close to 18 months! I have no problem with it! It's fantastic, but my problem is, we've waited for so long to get the MIUI 12, considering the fact that, millions of people are using this phone globally, than any Xiaomi phone!

This phone is JVC about video chat via WhatsApp, imo, Google Duo, Viber, etc., etc., etc.
JVC = Just Very Crap

I love the phone but I have one MAJOR problem. The camera is VERY BLURRY when in a video call on Messenger. The camera is clear when using the default app and even third party camera apps. It's just Messenger... I have never encountered something like this on my old phone, which is also Xiaomi but Redmi 4X. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger and cleared camera cache. Is anyone having the same problem? :(

Honestly, I think this phone is really GREAT. IF not fantastic. For this price, it has been my favourite phone of all the ones I have owned. Screen is Good, speed is Good. Size is Great. Sound is OK. I paid 150 for this phone in Bao Loc City. It's so reliably. Battery is excellent. This price-quality balance is so good you want to keep it for a very long time.

This mobile should not have made qr code.scanning feature for wifi. Others performance is very good..
Only wifi qr code scanning feature is worst and it is an unexpected result from Xiaomi. If possible plz remove this feature from thia phone.

Big fan of Xiaomi Note 7 but I only face one issue and couldn't find a solution, the notification on the lock screen will go if you in in locked the device for the first time, it will show on the status bar after I unlock it though.
Good thing there is the LED indicator.
Other than that I'm happy with the device, it's a big bargin against what I paid for it a year ago around $ 190

Being using for a year, and got some problem.the camera stopped working after used for a while.You have to restart the phone to make it functional again.Also when i used WhatsApp call it screen start to black .i dont know why it keeps doing that but you still can call but you can't end call or anything

More than a year n happy, no issues no problems

Our mobile has not worked even for 2 months during warranty period despite repairing by them multiple times.
Never buy any product, especially mobile from Xaomi. They are big cheater and their whole customer service organization works as a con team. I have never come across such an un-ethical company in technology domain. Save your money and also blood...they will suck both.

vey very goooooood mobile

  • bobh

@shana campbell when your phone fell in the water just immediately take out from the water and submerged immediately in a sack of rice.... i already made it 2 times, one fell from aquarium and second from a splash of one full glass of water...that was happened 3 years ago and luckily my phone still working until now... the phone was iphone 4s but
i think that is applicable to all phones

Get a Redmi Note 7 instead of Redmi Note 8. Then unlock your bootloader, install a custom recovery like OrangeFox and flash the latest build of Pixel Experience ROM (Android 10) which comes with Google Camera Port.
Forget to sell your phone for at least 2 years.
