Should You Buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro Anymore
Xiaomi India has changed a lot after the current competitive business of its products in India, and the value that they provide with their smartphones pricing is merely commendable.
Redmi Note 7 Pro will undoubtedly cite the first place again for Xiaomi in the budget section of the Indian smartphone market. And there isn’t any doubt that Redmi Note 7 Pro is a genuinely worthy product in the note segment.
All units are facing bizarre video lagging issue, and the problem hasn’t been resolved yet by the MIUI team. The question here arises that is it worth spending 14k INR for Redmi Note 7 Pro which has a significant camera bug while the main USP of the product is the camera itself.

- Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Processor
- 48 Megapixel + 5 Megapixel dual Rear Camera Sensors
- 13 Megapixel Front Camera Sensor

Earlier, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro design was not that appealing and had a dull metal back used from its previous generation. Along with the Redmi Note 6 Pro was only a quick launch with a few small improvements to counter Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2.
While looking at the Redmi Note 7 Pro, we can notice the fabulous new design, especially the Nebula Red variant, which gives a premium feel to this budget segment device. The disadvantage of this premium feature is that the back is made up of glass, which might give minor scratches or break upon irregular use and lead you to shell out extra cash on the replacement.
In addition to the front and back glass display comprising of Corning Corning Glass 5 is feasible at 14k INR but an exception towards the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 which has Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
The display is 6.3 inches using a Full HD Plus resolution that has vibrant colours falls behind the Samsung Galaxy M30’s screen which has AMOLED technology that provides more deeper black colours compared to the Redmi Note 7 Pro screen.
Xiaomi just nailed the build quality match with their Note 7 Pro as the device will not seem premium for the price point it has delivered.
Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi’s most current offering packs some terrific hardware and no additional smartphone in this price range comes close. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 processor that’s capable of providing decent functionality. There is no problem in daily tasks such as messaging, calls, browsing, watching some youtube videos and the list continues.
The chipset is capable of enjoying high-end games effortlessly like PUBGM and Asphalt 9. Lowering down the settings to moderate, it was a fun experience.
It will readily supply you with a one day of moderate to heavy use. Xiaomi has done quite well in optimizing the battery life of Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Redmi’s Note 7 Pro includes a dual-camera setup on the back comprising of 48 Megapixel sensor combined with a 5 Megapixel depth sensor. There’s a front camera of 13-megapixels too for selfies.
The images turned out to be ideal with both front and rear camera of 13 Megapixel. The edge detection algorithm of Xiaomi is just outstanding even with more than one individual in the framework, and it defines the objects nicely.
To our surprise, the 48-megapixel quality is simply a gimmick to attract clients into falling for this and purchase the smartphone. The 48 MP photographs take a processing delay of 5 seconds, but even with that amount of time, the results are slightly flattened.
While we took many photos on the Note 7 Pro, we found that the 12-megapixel photos looked far better than the overhyped 48-megapixel sensor. Xiaomi might be solving this issue in the future via OTA update. Providing optimized applications is as important as delivering great hardware. There’s a weird problem from the camera of Redmi Note 7 pro. Still, photography is fair, but when it comes to recording videos, the system isn’t able to perform as anticipated.
Xiaomi is known as a software company should have been fixed with OTA, but it appears Xiaomi is lazy or incompetent to correct this through an OTA update.
The only speaker on the Redmi Note7 pro is convincingly louder and clear. The RAM management retains only some programs in memory and closes the programs that are inactive over 20 minutes.
There’s a hybrid slot in which you can use both sim cards or one sim card with SD Card. The fingerprint sensor in the back, and it senses quickly.
Redmi Note 7 Pro supports Quick Charging, but Xiaomi didn’t provide a quick charger in the box, due to which you will have to spend additionally for it.
The one problem with the unit is that the video is lagging continuously, and at times even the camera application freezes. If Xiaomi can repair the camera problems and make the Redmi Note 7 Pro available in an Open sale, it will be great.
Redmi Note 7 Pro has the finest in class build quality with the glass rear, gradient design. But when the camera is the priority, then I’d suggest going for Realme 3 Pro.
