Redmi Note 7 Pro Design
Budget Smartphones of the Redmi Series are generally known for standard design languages. But the Redmi Note 7 Pro is very different. Xiaomi has used premium glass sandwich designs for this phone. It is very beautiful to look at, strong in addition. At first glance, this phone of Redmi all-brand is more expensive than its price which is good Redmi Note 7 Pro has the protection of Gorilla Glass 5 on either side. The plastic rim is used on the edges. The glass is curved along the rear panel. For this reason, the phone gives a good feeling in the hands. We reviewed the phone’s space black variant. In its praise, we will say so much, it is spectacular in appearance. We came with Reflective Finnish favorites. There is also a small Redmi logo on the back.
Now talk about shortcomings. Fingerprints fall easily on the phone. Stains are clearly visible in the black color variants. Rear cameras are rising. In recent days, there is no such a wide camera bulge. Users of the Redmi Note 7 Pro will have to compromise with these two shortcomings. Good thing is that these deficiencies can be removed from the protective cover. Redmi Note 7 Pro will also be available in Neptune Blue and Nebula Red Color. Both of these phones are with Metallic Gradient Design. Protection of Gorilla Glass 5 produces a great deal of trust. Xiaomi has reported that the side of Redmi Note 7 Pro is such that the screen gets protection from breakdown.
he company says that the existing parts inside Redmi Note 7 Pro come with some degree of protection of liquid damages. Such water tight seals and sim trays, volume rockers and power buttons have been possible due to rubber insulation. The company has used P2i hydrophobic nanotechno-coating.
It is worth noting that the Redmi Note 7 Pro has protection from water chunks. This is not a water or dust resistant.
The fingerprint sensor is on the back part. According to us, the volume buttons on the right side are slightly away. There is a problem reaching it with one hand. Power and volume button feedback is great.
On left is a hybrid dual sim tray. That is, users should choose one of the other SIM cards and MicroSD card. The phone support for up to 256 GB MicroSD card. 3.5mm headphone jack is on top. It also has an IR blaster. Speaker and USB Type-C port have got place on the lower part.
The forward-facing 6.3-inch Full-HD + (1080×2340 pixels) LTPS in-cell display is equipped with 19.5: 9 aspect ratios and 409 ppi pixel density. In the words of Shaomi, the top is ‘dot knock’.
The color reproduction of the display is fine. Viewing angles will also be a date. The contents appear on the screen sharp. However, we found that reflection on the screen is easily done. To get read on the screen in direct sunlight, we had to keep the brightness level at 90 percent. You can control the display color contrast and contrast of the display. There is also a reading mode that warms down the color of the screen, so that it can be easily read.
Due to the 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1 mm dimension Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro can not be called a small smartphone. Despite this we liked the design and build quality. It is not easy to reach every part of the screen with one hand.
Overall, it will be said that Redmi Note 7 Pro is one of the most beautiful handsets in its price segment. And it’s also strong. In the retail box, you will also find smartphones, protective cover, USB Type C cable, 10 W charger, SIM eject tool and some papers.
Redmi Note 7 Pro Specifications and Software
Xiaomi is always known for giving powerful hardware in affordable handsets. Redmi Note 7 Pro is also no different. This type of hardware will be available to you in a more expensive device. The smartphone uses the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor.
Based on the RAM and storage, this phone has two variants – 64 GB storage with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage with 6 GB of RAM. The cost of expensive variants is Rs. 16,999. Inbuilt storage can be increased by up to 256 GB of microSD card. But hybrid SIM design means you have to sacrifice the second SIM to increase the storage. The phone comes with Widevine L1 certification.
This means that users will be able to watch HD content on Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Redmi Note 7 Pro is equipped with USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, IR emitter, 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.
Redmi Note 7 Pro will run on the MUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. There is security patches in February. According to us, MIUI is a matter of their own choice. The experience for people upgrading from Xiaomi smartphone will be the same as before. But users using Stock Android or any other skin can be confused with the MUI.
Personalization options appear on the screen for long periods of time. Here, the wallpapers, apps, widgets, screen layouts and transition effects can be personalized. Redmi Note 7 Pro’s user interface is extremely smoother. You can enable gesture navigation if you wish. But it was not so smoother.
MIUI comes with many unwanted apps. Redmi Note 7 Pro also suffers from this lack. Mi Browser, Mi Video, Mi Community and Mi Pay apps are already installed in the phone. Many third-party apps are also available.
Third party applications can be uninstalled. But it is possible to do a Force Stop in-house application. But it is also important to know about the biggest shortage of the MUI. You will be troubled by many unsolicited commercials.
By the way, MIUI also has many work features. You can decide the gestures for many functions. With the help of adapter battery, users can choose the apps they do not want to run in the background. This will reduce battery consumption. The Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor has been used in Radmi Note Pro 7. This processor is used in expensive Vivo V15 Pro. We have no complaints about the performance. Whether it is web browsing, or multi-tasking. Phone Smooth runs. Even though 10-12 apps are open in the background, but switching between them is smoother.
Redmi Note 7 Pro also proved itself as a capable performer in gaming. Game Smooth with low power graphics can be played. Game with powerful graphics such as PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends were also smoother. Both games run on high graphics and default performance settings. But we got complaints about frame drop. This reduction was overcome when the graphics settings were made medium. After that our gaming experience was great.
Regardless of whether Redmi Note 7 Pro plays with ease in common usage. But there is a complaint about it being hot. The phone became very hot after nearly hours of PUBG Mobile or Modern Combat 5. Especially in the fingerprint sensor part. The temperature of the phone was very high. Because of this, we had to keep idle for some time to keep the phone cool. We hope Xiaomi will overcome this shortcoming in the future through OTA updates.
