What the Critics Are Saying...


Notebookcheck

The Note 7 has a clear advantage over the P20 Lite. It outdoes it not only in terms of raw performance, but in other areas such as Wi-Fi performance and running times as well. The Qualcomm competition is fairly evenly matched. At between 200 Euros and 250 Euros (~$227 - ~$284) depending on the stora...

The Redmi Note 7 Pro has a lot working in its favour. With its eye-catching design, smooth performance, impressive cameras and long battery life, it has all the makings of a solid smartphone. Add to that a highly competitive price point, and Xiaomi has another champion on its hands.

This phone has a lot of positives. The design has improved drastically and so has the camera. The performance is smooth, and the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a big battery. The negatives were the device heating up while gaming, the user interface being heavily customised, which leaves out some key An...

The Redmi Note 7 Pro is a really nice phone that offers some of the best hardware you can get at this price point. Unfortunately, software glitches mar an otherwise excellent phone. Ads strewn across the interface make for an intrusive user experience.

The Note 7 has a clear advantage over the P20 Lite. It outdoes it not only in terms of raw performance, but in other areas such as Wi-Fi performance and running times as well. The Qualcomm competition is fairly evenly matched. At between 200 Euros and 250 Euros (~$227 - ~$284) depending on the storage configuration, the prices are similar to those of the Note 7. Due to this, the choice comes down to details such as extra features and aesthetics, although not one of the three other candidates is able to rival the Note in terms of camera resolution.

This phone has a lot of positives. The design has improved drastically and so has the camera. The performance is smooth, and the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a big battery. The negatives were the device heating up while gaming, the user interface being heavily customised, which leaves out some key Android Pie features. The selfie camera could also be better. For its price, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a complete package, with very little flaws.

A stylish smartphone with a great display

The killer feature of this smartphone is the price and, until a real competitor shows up at my desk, the Redmi Note 7 will remain the low-budget smartphone that I heartily recommend.

Unless you nitpick and try hard to find faults with the phone, there's really very little room to complain here. I still feel Xiaomi could have worked on how grippy the phone feels or how a dedicated Gaming mode could have been thrown into the software mix for gamers, but then again, this a budget device and it would be unfair to pull Xiaomi out for the minor misses.

The smartphone offers everything a premium model does; except with the heavy price tag.

from Deccan Chronicle

The Note 7 Pro is a testament to the brand’s understanding of the current smartphone market. And as of now and probably till the next Note Pro handset from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, this is the model we recommend you buy eyes closed.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro is not only better than the Realme 2 Pro, Nokia 7.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Honor 8X and dare we say the Samsung Galaxy M20 too, but is in fact better by a significant margin. The performance, the camera and the battery stamina are the secret ingredients, it seems. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is now in a different league altogether. Buying this, really, is not even up for debate.
