Say hello to the Xiaomi Redmi 7 — one of the newest additions to the Redmi series coming with a more powerful processor, larger screen, brand-new plastic body featuring optional trendy gradient designs, among other nifty offerings. This smartphone, which was announced some weeks ago in March, is an all-rounder that does not dazzle fans and customers with just a single headlining feature. It offers you quality and top performance at nearly everything.
The Redmi 7 HD+ screen, of 6.26 inches, provides an immersive experience making games and media look good. The new device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC that works with either 2GB/3GB RAM and 16GB/32GB built-in storage. Its cameras are remarkable as the rear 12-MP main shooter helps you capture impressive daylight shots. Its low-light performance, however, was iffy.
You would find the 4000mAh non-removable battery more than enough to see you through the entire 24 hours in a day.
