Hey Everyone, we are reviewing the latest smartphone from Xiaomi i.e Redmi 7A. We are reviewing this phone after some days of usage and we will guide whether you should consider buying this phone or not. 

Let's Begin...

Xiaomi has launched this smartphone on July 4 in India at a base price of 5,799 Rs (Probably Rs 5,800 😄) for 2GB RAM and 16 GB storage and Rs 5,999 for again 2GB RAM but 32GB storage. The price is pretty much affordable than other brands giving the same kind of specifications. 

Overall looks:

Redmi 7A comes with an 18:9 5.45-inch 
(720 × 1440 pixels) HD+ display, Considering the price you cannot ask for Full HD+ display. The 5.45-inch display makes this phone small in size. The budget-friendly phone comes in three colour options Black, Blue and Gold. Though the phone is made up of plastic body like other xiaomi phones in this price segment. While holding this phone it does not feels that we are holding a phone made up of plastic and because of its small size, the phone also fits in hands perfectly. Xiaomi has moved the speaker from the rear to the bottom side which is good as when the phone is lying it doesn't affect its sound volume. 

Xiaomi says the smartphone is splash resistance with P2i coating but however, it does not have an IP rating for water and dust resistance and Xiaomi also says in their terms and conditions page that 👇.

* Dust and splash resistance is only applicable to everyday dust and splashing. The phone is not protected from pouring or immersion in water or from extremely dusty or sandy environments. Redmi 7A has not been tested for waterproof or dust proof capabilities and is not eligible for repair under warranty if damaged by water, dust or dropping. Moreover, daily dust and splashing may wear down protection over time. Avoid charging the phone in moist and humid environments.

 So don't dip Redmi 7A into a glass of water (for testing purpose) as it is not waterproof and not eligible for repair if damaged by water as mentioned above. 

Redmi 7A Performance:

The Redmi 7A comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 Octa-core processor and includes the Adreno 505GPU. This chipset is manufactured on a 12nm FinFET process. Notably, the phone's predecessor i.e Redmi 6A packs a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC with Quad-core CPU. Comparatively the Redmi 7A should deliver more power and higher efficiency as Snapdragon 439 is made with four extra cores than Helio A22. You can play high graphics game like Asphalt 9 Legends, PUBG (in low graphics mode) but not for too long. We recommend playing these games in low graphics to avoid heating and battery drainage.

Redmi 7A Battery and Camera:

Talking about the battery capacity, the Redmi 7A features a large 4,000mAh battery capacity with 10W charging support which is extremely good 👍. Xiaomi says it gives nearly 2 days of battery life but if you charge in the morning and using constantly or playing high-end games it won't last till midnight😅. 

Talking about the camera then Redmi 7A is equipped with a single 12-megapixel rear camera (vertically aligned) which is assisted by an LED flash. The front camera consists of a 5-megapixel AI selfie camera. The camera quality of the rear camera is pretty good than its predecessor Redmi 6A while the front camera is average considering in this price segment. 


The Redmi 7A does not feature a fingerprint sensor. However, the phone comes with face unlock feature along with the standard PIN, Passcode and pattern unlocked. Though the face unlocks is not that fast it takes minimum 1.5 seconds to get unlocked. I think Xiaomi here missed the trick by not providing fingerprint sensor, still you can't complain in this price point. 

Other Features:

Another feature of this smartphone which I personally love is a feature of Wireless FM Radio. Yes in this modern era also many people listen to the radio and in Redmi 7A you can listen to the radio without inserting earphone/headphone in the 3.5mm audio jack which is a plus point 👍. 

Redmi 7A is also splash resistance due to P2i coating, which reduces the corrosion due to water, sweat, oils, beverages etc.
