2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Very good build quality
  • Nice looking plastic design, with a matte finish (though it's not quite as stylish and modern as the Realme C2, with the company's trademark diamond design and dewdrop notch)
  • Matte finish means it's easier to keep the phone's body clean and also doesn't highlight scratches
  • It is also a pretty compact phone - if you like smaller phones, you will like the Redmi 7A - it fits well in hands
  • Splash proof
  • Fast face unlock
  • While the design is pretty decent, it does looks a bit old-school with the large bezels

Display

  • Decent 5.45-inch IPS display with good viewing angles
  • Sunlight legibility could have been better

Software

  • MIUI is one of the more refined Android UIs, and packs many features like 'dark mode', 'reading mode' etc - this time the ads are relatively less intrusive too, compared to recent Redmi phones (although they are still there)

Performance

  • Pretty decent performance with the new Snapdragon 439 processor - day-to-day use is fairly smooth, and simple games run well
  • Overall processor performance is pretty similar compared to its main competitor, the Realme C2
  • 2GB RAM is somewhat limiting in terms of multitasking performance

Camera

  • Decent set of rear (12MP) and front cameras (5MP), for the price bracket
  • In outdoor situations specially, the cameras deliver good results with pretty good details and colours
  • Overall, the camera performance is similar to the other "relatively good" camera phone for the ultra-budget category, the Realme C2
  • Low light performance is expectedly average though

Battery

  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAH battery - you can easily get up to 1.5 days of use

Extended Warranty

  • The Xiaomi Redmi 7A is the first Xiaomi phone to come with two years of warranty

Verdict

  • Overall, the Redmi 7A is a pretty solid ultra-budget option from the Xiaomi camp - if you don't care much for having a stylish design, and your performance requirements are basic, it's a good, reliable option to go for
