With Redmi Note 7 Pro, Xiaomi reentered the marketplace with something to prove after the not so great reviews cast on the phone’s predecessors. Wanting to make a splash back into the market and flex its muscle, the company changed up a lot of what was formerly criticized about its products and made a push for producing a beast of a device. While pushing up the level of positives, as with every product, there are some negatives to consider. Let’s take a look at some of the Pros and Cons of the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Pros of the Redmi Note 7 Pro
● Cameras. The front camera is 13 megapixels, while the rear has dual cameras where one is an impressive 48 megapixel, which takes spectacularly crisp, detailed, and clear photos. The other is a 15-megapixel camera, geared for sharp autofocus shots. Additionally, the camera is fantastic for night shots, lighting up the darker areas accordingly, for an excellent clear final picture.
● Elegant look. The phone has a premium look with a sleek front and back glass outing, surrounded by a plastic rim around the perimeter, making it look beautiful and feel good in your hands. It comes with three different color options: Nebula Red, Neptune Blue, and Space Black. The screen is reviewed to have decent durability as well. There is a water-drop notch on the front of the phone to make more room for the camera.
● Good battery backup. The battery lasts for over a day, holds up even when you’re gaming and streaming. Of course, those activities do deplete it faster, it still holds up. The battery is non-removable but is compatible with fast charging 4.0 adapters.
● Good for gaming. Casual games run very smoothly, and even more intense and resource depleting games hold up well with this device.
● Good storage capacity. The variations of devices come with a respectable 128 GB of storage and can be expanded further to 256GB with the use of a microSD card.
Cons of the Redmi Note 7 Pro
● Delicate rear glass. The glassy design looks nice, but, especially on the back of the phone, it seems to be a bit fragile. It also collects dust and fingerprints quickly.
● No fast charger bundled. Though the device is compatible with fast charging, it does not come packaged with one. The prepackaged charger has been found to take upwards of 2 and a half hours to achieve a full charge, which is really on the longer side of most modern phones‘ charging capabilities.
● Ads in the UI. The interface is pretty generously laden with advertisements, which can be bothersome. Most of them can be turned off in the settings, but it is still annoying to have to go through the process of doing so. A lot of these come from pre-installed third-party apps, most of which cannot be removed from the phone, force stopped.
● Hot when gaming. Though the phone’s battery holds up well while gaming, the battery does heat up in the process, making extended gaming uncomfortable, and a bit worrisome to the users
