In a bid to keep up with the competition, brands are continually launching new models with upgraded features. Xiaomi is no different. Its most budget-friendly series, the Redmi, gets a new entry in the form of the recently launched Redmi Note 7S, which is handily available on the MI Store. But does it live up to the expectations set by its sibling Redmi phones this year? And do the new Redmi Note 7S features make it worth the wait so far?
Well, that is exactly what this Redmi Note 7S review hopes to help you find out. So, if you’ve been following up with the Redmi launches this year and are wondering if Redmi 7S is the one worth investing in, let us take you through its prime features.
Design: For a mid-range model, the Redmi Note 7S certainly has a premium design feel to it. It comes covered in a sleek, all-glass design with the front and back fitted with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It also comes with a stunning gradient finish and continues to follow Xiaomi’s “Aura Design” philosophy.
However, it is the phone’s rounded frame that makes for one of the best Redmi Note 7S features, since it makes the phone incredibly comfortable to hold and provides a sleek hand feel. The design also prioritizes convenience and offers a splash-proof body as well as a headphone jack, a feature that many flagship phones skip out on today.
Display: The Redmi Note 7S flaunts a massive, sharp 6.3 inch LCD screen and with a resolution of 1080×2340, it makes consuming visual content a real joy. Also, like its sibling phones this year, the display of Redmi 7S comes clean and unobstructed thanks to the tiny notch, which the brand has termed the “dot notch”.
The display quality itself is outstanding, and offers great brightness levels, even when tested with a variety of viewing angles. One of the Redmi Note 7S features that makes it so unique is that unlike most phones, it also offers adjustments in the display’s colour and screen temperature. This allows the user greater control over their viewing experience and freedom to alter the screen as per the video content being consumed.
Camera: Of course, this Redmi Note 7S review would be incomplete without an overview of the phone’s most highlighted feature – its 48 MP camera. Yes, like the Redmi Note 7 Pro before it, the Redmi 7S offers a high-resolution 48 MP primary sensor coupled with a 5 MP depth sensor to make up a brilliant dual-camera setup in the rear.
The camera performance is truly one of the best Redmi Note 7S features, with daylight shots boasting of vibrant colours, a good amount of detail and just the right levels of contrast. The camera also delivers on its Night Mode performance, with images that contain punchy colours and minimal noise. On the front, the Redmi Note 7S comes packed with a 13 MP selfie camera that delivers sharp images and provides a variety of AI-based beautification features.
Software and Performance: The Redmi Note 7S runs on Xiaomi’s very own custom MIUI 10, which is incredibly clean, minimal and easy to use. Switching between apps, scrolling through menus and multitasking is super smooth and offers no frame drops at any stage. It also has the option of the latest navigation gestures as well as the standard navigation buttons for the more traditional smartphone users.
The Redmi 7S is powered by a 2.2GHz 14nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC processor which guarantees a smooth experience, even while playing graphic-heavy games. It also helps run clear of any heating issues, lags or performance delays.
Coupled with the efficient processor, the Redmi Note 7S features a massive 4000 mAh battery and together, the two can easily guarantee at least a day’s worth of moderate to heavy usage.
All in all, if you were looking for a Redmi Note 7S review that could help you make up your mind about getting this model, this is it. And our review says: go for it. Considering the variety and strength of all of its features, the Redmi Note 7S is a real steal at its price range. With its eye-catching design, the durable battery life, the impressive display and most importantly, the 48 MP camera, the Redmi 7S is more than worth its price of Rs. 10,999.
