Redmi seems to be on the mission of making its mark in the Indian market with back to back launches catering to buyers of all kinds. Before the advent of Redmi, there were other brands around us such as Google, Samsung, Motorola etc. after the invention of mobile phones. But unfortunately, did not have models for all types of buyers.
On the other hand, Redmi has a cell phone for almost budget ranges, and the best part, it has features that are best in class. For example, the Redmi 7A is an entry-level budget phone with features better than usual.
Redmi already had some budget phones costing under 10,000 but the Redmi 7A is a new addition to the budget smartphones. However, it has been designed keeping in mind teenagers or people using a smartphone for the first time and has specifications and upgrades better than the previous models.
Here are some of the key specifications for the mobile phone which will give you an idea of what can be expected from the Redmi 7A review.
|Screen size||5.45- inches HD+ display|
|Internal memory||16GB 2GB RAM, 32GB 2GB RAM and a 32GB 3GB RAM variant|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor|
|Rear camera||12 megapixels|
|Front camera||5 megapixels|
Features And Specifications Of The Redmi 7A
In this section of the Redmi 7A review, we will be discussing the features and aspects of the device which will help you in comparing it to different options in the same price range.
The Redmi 7A appears in a different design than the previous Redmi phones. It has a 9.55 mm thickness with rounded corners and an appropriate dimension which makes it comfortable to hold and use. At the front, there are not so thick bezels and a camera that doesn’t have a notch for a change. The rear is made up of poly-carbonate and has a matte finish. However, it looks quite basic even from the back and does not have a fingerprint scanner. You can choose from three color options which are matte black, blue, and gold. All in all, there is nothing fancy or out of the box about its design but a good phone for the price you are paying.
It has a 5.45-inch HD + display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1440. The specifications are not impressive but when you see the screen in action you will not be disappointed. The brightness is good in both sunlight and dim lighting with auto-brightness being not so helpful. The colors are also not that vibrant. At least as much as I would want them to but they have a screen- adjustment utility to resolve that problem.
Redmi 7A is the first smartphone from the Redmi series to have an octa-core processor and this makes it a worthy successor of the Redmi 6A. Based on Android 9.0 it has a good user interface which android users are used to by now. It runs on the MIUI 10, the latest version which gives me a standard impression of the entry-level smartphone.
Memory And Storage
The phone comes in various variants concerning memory and storage. With up to 3 GB RAM and 16 GB as well as 32 GB internal memory there are three options in total. The 2 GB variant doesn’t have enough storage even if you are a user who has important apps installed and a few games here and there. One needs to buy a separate micro-SD card while buying this.
The camera is one of the features we care the most about. With Redmi 7A you get photos that have good sharpness and close to natural colors. This is when the pictures are clicked in broad daylight. However, in dim lighting, you get what you pay for. The pictures aren’t that great and lack of quality. As far as the macro lens is concerned, the sharpness is good but don’t expect much from it. However, you do get more than basic features in the camera app like portrait mode, beauty mode etc.
The most important point of this Redmi 7A review has to be this one. After all, if the phone does not perform well you will not be able to use other features of the phone. So, when you compare it to others in the same price range it gives a tough competition and stands true to my expectations. With the price tag, you would not expect a high-end type performance and you should not. Multitasking can be a bit difficult with even the basic and simpler apps taking more than usual to start. If you are a gamer expect only to be able to switch between small-sized common games and not something like PUBG.
It comes with a 4,000 mAh battery and considered the performance, software and screen of the handset this will surely last you for two days if you are a light user. On workdays where you tend to switch between a search engine, social media apps, and a little music or video streaming you can go for the whole day without worrying about the battery running out.
Pros And Cons
So, now that the Redmi 7A review has told you about everything that you needed to know about the mobile phone it is time to analyze the features and see if it is worth your time and money.
|The plastic build makes it tough and reliable.||2 GB RAM is not enough.|
|No issues with one-hand usage.||The camera does not focus properly.|
|Amazing battery life.||Heavy games cannot be played.|
|The screen has good brightness and quality.|
|Comes with a two-year warranty.|
So, is the Redmi 7A value for money?
Redmi as a brand is known for making smartphones that are durable and also within a budget. The 7A model is an entry-level smartphone but still, you do get some more than basic features which is great.
By the looks of it, you will not feel that the phone is so inexpensive and the screen is amazing as well.
The best part is its pricing starts with just 4,999.
However, the camera and memory have some cons which can be adjusted if you are restricted under a budget.
In a nutshell, you can surely go for the Redmi 7A if you do not want to waste more than 5,000.
