It has a screen dimension of 158.7 X 75.6 X 8.5mm. The back of the phone looks very attractive, thanks to the gradient design. Due to its curved edges, it is easy to grip. Redmi 7 isn't as heavy as it is on paper. It weighs 180g and a density of 8.5mm.

The back panel has the same problem with its predecessors, even with the aluminum rear it still shows signs of scratch. You have to be mindful of where you drop your phone, if you're the careless type we would recommend you make use of a pouch or case.

Xiaomi Redmi 7 back consists of the flash, fingerprint scanner and camera. The camera is placed at the top left with the flash below it. The fingerprint scanner isn't very high, it is easy to reach even with a mere stretch of your finger. The fingerprint sensor is fast, it unlocks your phone within a twinkle of an eye. We are highly impressed that Xiaomi hasn't written off 3.5mm headphone jack. The headphone jack is placed at the top. On the left side, you'll find the SIM tray and a microSD CARD slot that supports expandable storage, while on the right side you'll see the power button and volume keys. The micro-USB port and the speaker grilles are found at the bottom of Redmi 7.

Dual Camera Setup 
Average Photo Quality 

Xiaomi Redmi comes with a dual camera setup which you'll find at the back. The dual camera is made up of the main sensor having 12 megapixel and aperture of f/2.2 while the depth sensor has 2 megapixels. The selfie camera has a megapixel of 8 and an aperture of f/2.0. It records video at a resolution of 1080p@3fps. The camera isn't as good as we expected but it's quite decent,  the images captured in daylight look were detailed, bright and vibrant. The AI enhances the camera ability, it also gives you the ability to adjust saturation and contrast to your own taste. The AI camera Briggs about the AI Scene Defection which can automatically up-to 33 scene optimization on images.

The Focus is pretty good in daylight but opposite in low light, the camera can't even focus in a subject and after you tap on the shutter button to look at your picture, you'll see lacks brightness, sharpness, and texture. The zoom in feature is quite poor, the photos look washed out.

During our test, we tried capturing Portrait Shots in daylight, the images were far better than that of Redmi 6. The edge detection was pretty good also.

Pictures captured with the selfie camera were quite bright, vibrant and well detailed. It still has the same problem with the rear camera, poor low light images. Looking at the price tag, we can say the camera is good.

Low RAM  Capacity 
Expandable Storage

The storage capacity was discouraging, we expect far much better storage specs than this. Redmi 7 comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Maybe Xiaomi wanted its users to purchase the microSD card looking at the storage specs, who knows?  We are impressed that Redmi added expandable storage of about 512GB, we recommend if you have the money to purchase it, you should get it immediately you're leaving the store.

Large Battery Capacity 

As we expected, Redmi 7 comes with a whopping 4,000mAh. The battery can last two days under moderate use, under intensive usage it can last a whole day. The battery is non-removable, it doesn't come with fast charging. The charger takes two and a half hour to completely charge your phone from 0percent to 100percent.

Interface & Performance 
Android 9 Pie
Lag When Heavily Used 

It runs on Android 9 Pie which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset which an octa-core CPU. It comes with GPS connectivity and Bluetooth v4.2. It supports 4G VolLTE network.  The SIM configuration is dual and accepts Nano-SIM. Graphics are enhanced by Adreno 506.

During our test, we tried multitasking multiple apps and also running large apps we notice lagging at some point, we expect this to happen due to the low RAM ability. Moreover, we were surprised that large Games like PUGB was running at its lowest resolution when Redmi 7 rivals can even load the app. Redmi 7 sensors include Fingerprint, Proximity, and Compass.


Redmi 7 being one of the most affordable smartphones, we didn't expect premium features. It comes with a very vibrant display, decent camera, large battery capacity that can last a whole day even under heavy usage and average performance due to its low RAM. Out of the newly produced affordable smartphone, Redmi 7 has a better display. The Redmi 7 is really worth the money due to its modern look and features.
