What the Critics Are Saying...


Business Standard

Redmi 7 has the feel of a phone that costs way above its price. If you are looking for a great camera, this is not a buy for you. However, if you seek a phone that can last long on one charge and endure falls, this Redmi phone is the right choice.

The Redmi 7 does offer better features and performance as compared to its predecessors. The design is refreshing, while the performance is quite satisfactory. The daylight performance of the camera is good, though, in low light, it shimmers. The battery is impressive in our opinion. That said, you c...

The Redmi 7 experience wasn’t very different than what we had anticipated going in this review. The 2GB RAM variant is strictly meant only for basic users who need to dabble with light apps. If you can’t go beyond the budget of Rs. 8000 and if you are a light user, you may go ahead with the Redmi 7....

For its price, Redmi 7 is certainly an excellent package. What stood out was the battery and the overall device performance, which is above average in this price segment. Yes, the phone’s camera performance could be better, both on the front and back.

The Redmi 7 does offer better features and performance as compared to its predecessors. The design is refreshing, while the performance is quite satisfactory. The daylight performance of the camera is good, though, in low light, it shimmers. The battery is impressive in our opinion. That said, you can actually buy Redmi Note 7 by adding just Rs 1,000. So, if you are ready to tolerate its misses and especially the advertisement, then you can think of this phone as your next budget smartphone.

If you can’t go beyond the budget of Rs. 8000 and if you are a light user, you may go ahead with the Redmi 7. Otherwise, we’d recommend you extend your budget and choose from phones like Redmi Note 7 or Realme 3.

A beautiful designed handset with a powerful battery in a budget price

from Deccan Chronicle

The Redmi 7 has a lot going for it in terms of specs and an added advantage is the 4000mAh battery and the way it has been optimized. Apart from this, the Redmi 7 features a great design and speedy performances all across the board. So if your budget lies in the sub Rs 8K price range, then this handset is your best bet, no quests asked.

A reliable, value for money offering

from BGR

The Redmi 7 is a good example where you get a good design, long lasting battery and decent camera, three important things that most people look in a smartphone. The performance is also better, and in its price point, there isn’t much to complain.

A great smartphone at an affordable price

from Notebookcheck

Despite the competition trying to catch up, Xiaomi continues to offer the best price-to-performance ratio. The Redmi 7 offers good performance, decent cameras, very long battery runtimes, a flashy design, a stable case, a decent speaker, a fast fingerprint reader and more-or-less up-to-date software for under $150.

The Redmi 7 is a good phone for its price. The Redmi 7 looks stunning for its price. The gradient finish is a highlight of the phone. And in other aspects, the Redmi 7 is a mixed bag. The phone manages to click pretty good pictures in good light, offers great battery life - possibly one the best under Rs 10,000 -- has decent performance, and comes in several funky colours. I wish the display could have brighter. But regardless, the value that Redmi 7 offers for the price is great.

Battery life is great, but the cameras are just about okay

from NDTV

Xiaomi has done a lot to improve the Redmi series, and the new Redmi 7 offers better features and specifications as well as more up-to-date looks than the Redmi 6. There are a few steps backwards though – we don't like the reduction in RAM on the base model and lack of a 64GB storage variant.
