Before I blabber out the Redmi 7 specs, let me tell you the price of the device in various countries. So that you will know if the device is really worth the money it’s asking for.

Redmi 7 Price in India (Approx.): INR 7,999 (3/32GB)

Now since I’ve told you the price, let’s head into the Redmi 7 features. And I would like to begin the things with the Redmi 7 display. The phone comes with 6.26-inch IPS LCD display featuring HD+ resolution. Since Redmi 7 and Redmi Note 7 features the same screen size, they are barely distinguishable when looked together. But if you do Redmi 7 vs Redmi Note 7 comparison on the display front while viewing the contents, you can find the differences. Since the Redmi Note 7 comes with Full-HD+ resolution, the contents look really sharp on the Note. Although the resolution may not be particularly pleasing, it’s quite commendable to see Corning gorilla glass 5 on the top of the Redmi 7 display.
Atop the display lies a tiny notch. Because of the size of the notch, Xiaomi likes to call it a dot notch display. And on the notch resides an 8MP selfie shooter. Apart from taking selfies, the Redmi 7 front camera also comes into action while unlocking the device using Face Unlock feature. And talking about the accuracy, Redmi 7 Face Unlock feature isn’t quite accurate but it’s decently fast. If you want a better accuracy, you can also use the fingerprint sensor on the device. Redmi 7 fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate so unlocking the device won’t be a problem afterall.
Heading on to the rear camera, the phone has been equipped with a pair of shooters at the back. The camera duo on this device comprises of 12MP main shooter backed by a 2MP depth sensor. Although the dual camera sounds interesting, it’s nothing much to go on about it. On our Redmi 7 camera review, the phone captured images with inaccurate color tones and some pathetic portrait images. So this phone is by no means a camera phone.
But when it comes to performance, the phone shows its true potential. The phone flaunts Snapdragon 632 chipset with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM alongside. In terms of storage, you can get two options: one with 16GB and another with 32GB. With this setup on the board, the handset performs decent on the regular use. Normal apps and games run without any hiccup and multitasking between them is also not a matter of concern. We also tried to play some high end games on our Redmi 7 gaming review and most of them ran at low setting with some frame drops. My Redmi 7 PUBG experience was decent. I noticed some stutters and frame drops but that’s usually the case with the budget phones. So that was understandable.
The phone is fueled by a whopping 4000mAh battery. And on my Redmi 7 battery test, the phone lasted for two days on the normal use. Since the battery has to fuel the low-res HD display and a power efficient chipset, that was more or less expected. But charging the device was quite a pain in the neck. On my Redmi 7 charging test, the device took around two and half hours to get its battery full charged. With the big battery and capable battery, the device looks impressive. But the Redmi 7 durability is quite a concern since the device has a cheap plastic back, which gets scratches easily and cracks on the bend tests.
