Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 7A

82.6% Xiaomi Redmi 7A Smartphone Review – the cut-price phone | Notebookcheck
The Xiaomi Redmi 7A is available for $100. Its predecessor already had quite a lot to offer considering its low price. The Redmi 7A, at first glance, does not seem to offer a lot of changes. Can it keep up its great price-to-performance ratio?

With a relatively petite frame, great battery life, a sturdy design and an attractive price point, the Redmi 7A is quite a steal. But with limited RAM, divisive software and an iffy camera, it isn’t an instant recommendation.

Hands on: Xiaomi Redmi 7A Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Xiaomi Redmi 7A has all the hallmarks of an affordable Android phone; the thick, heavy polycarbonate build, the sub-Full HD resolution screen, the use of microUSB connectivity and the limited memory and storage options. However, the collective impression is that the Redmi 7A looks, feels and handles like a phone at the very least double what it actually costs; with premium components, features typically reserved for far more advanced and higher-end handsets, and a few talents that help it stand out.

Xiaomi Redmi 7A Unboxing, Quick Review: Should You Buy The Most Affordable Redmi?
Source: Unbox English
Xiaomi’s budget offerings have had free reign in the lower end of the market for quite a while now, with very few worthy opponents in terms of both price and performance. That’s changed this year, and the Redmi 7A will be doing battle with a lot of other really good smartphones in the same price range this year. Let’s take a look at what you’ll get when you do decide to pick up the phone:

To summarize, the Redmi 7A has few positives like the bigger battery, better camera and a Snapdragon processor. The device manages to capture satisfactory images that are shareable on Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms.

Priced at Rs 5,999, the Redmi 7A is a well-packaged product in the entry-level smartphone segment. For first-time smartphone users, the Redmi 7A is excellent! Consider this phone for its splash resistant build, minimal design, capable cameras, and decent performance. Besides, the phone comes with two years’ warranty, which makes it a good investment.

The Redmi 7A is a major upgrade over the Redmi 6A (Review) with improvements in almost all areas. The design is fresh and the build quality is better too. The display is also decent for the asking price, and the rear camera performs well under daylight.

Xiaomi Redmi 7A Hands-On And First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Xiaomi Redmi 7A starts at ₹5,999 for its 16 GB storage variant and ₹5,999 for its 32 GB storage variant. However, for the month of July, both models will be available for ₹5,799 and ₹5,999 respectively. What we missed? The Redmi 7A lacks a fingerprint scanner, a secondary camera (preferably a dual camera setup on the back), an IR Blaster, but these can be ignored for what it’s been offered, considering the price, there’s nothing much to ask. On the positive side, the Redmi 7A has a dedicated microSD slot, a huge 4,000 mAh battery, 2.0 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 439 CPU, Face Unlock, and comes with a 2-year long warranty.

Redmi 7A First Impressions: Does it have power to take on Competition?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Redmi 7A is a standard-looking smartphone from Xiaomi. There is nothing new in terms of design or display. The chipset is an upgrade from its predecessor and so is the battery capacity. The camera performance is yet to be tested out and the software optimisation is one area to look forward. As for the competition is concerned, it sure has some tough competition including Realme C2, Infinix Smart 3 Plus, Nokia 2.2 and more.

The Redmi 7A comes at a time when Xiaomi’s competitors are wising up. It isn’t the only company selling quality hardware at an affordable price. With that in mind, Xiaomi will have to focus on broader aspects of the phone like the software experience that is increasingly becoming irksome to users.

The Redmi 7A isn't for everyone. The phone is targeted at consumers looking for an affordable phone that is decent enough to handle basic usage with ease.

Comment

Model: Xiaomi has garnered much beloved attention and positive reception from the Southern Asian community due to a variety of relatable reasons. Not only are Xiaomi smartphones and gadgets fairly priced in accordance to the third world currency exchange rate, but also anything that has been released by the China-based technological brand is never the least even remotely subpar. Such is also the case for the Xiaomi Redmi 7A, which is one of the brand’s latest releases, being the smaller palm-sized rendition of its sibling, the Xiaomi Redmi 7. The Xiaomi Redmi 7A carries a HD+ Full Screen Display size of approximately 5.45 inch. This creates the stunning aspect ratio of 18:9 and makes the Xiaomi Redmi 7A the perfect tool of convenience to be carried around with. Not only its palm-sized dimensions render it handy and comfortable to the grip, the HP+ Full Screen Display ensures that users get to experience the most captivating of visuals without compromising on screen quality or color resolution.

On top of that, the Xiaomi Redmi 7A utilizes core components that are rather promising when it comes to the deliverance of performance. For instance, the Xiaomi Redmi 7A taps into the innermost reserves of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 Octa-core processor to power the entirety of the device. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octa-core processor has been tested to achieve up to 2.0 GHz of clock speed, which in itself is an applaudable achievement considering that the modern generation of processors that are used for current laptop models can achieve up to 2.6 GHz, which is not that far off in terms of performance. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 Octa-core processor enables users to simultaneously perform more tasks throughout the day while also providing substantial support in the promotion of battery efficiency. On the subject of battery efficiency, Xiaomi does its best in making sure to incorporate a pack of battery which works seamlessly in tandem with the chosen processor unit of their choice. The Xiaomi Redmi 7A now comes with a high-capacity 4000 mAh battery, which guarantees an ultra-long battery life. The MIUI’s system optimization feature integrated inside of the Xiaomi Redmi 7A plays a significantly important role in helping the device to save more power thus prolonging the battery life to an overreaching extent. The Xiaomi Redmi 7A also supports 10W charging to ensure that charging the smartphone is never a chore nor a long wait in line.

Qualcomm Adreno 505:

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

5.45":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Xiaomi:

Xiaomi Tech was founded as a Chinese smartphone producer in 2010 and soon reached high market shares in its home market. Although Xiaomi is not one of the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide in 2016, it is nevertheless one of the big global players in this market segment.

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.


75.51%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
