reviews Redmi Note 7 – For a week tried the Redmi Note 7 mobile phone with 3 gigabytes (GB) of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, a variety of features installed in the smartphone.
Design and display
REDMI Note 7 has a design with a body that is quite heavy 186 grams. REDMI first Smartphone after a split from Xiaomi had dimensions of 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1 millimeters. Every corner of the phone has an arch making it comfortable when gripped. The rear is designed with a gradient glass back cover, making the phone look shiny like a glass. It is prone to dirty fingerprints, if not diligently cleaned, the phone will look scourge.
With a screen size of 6.3 inches FHD +, screen-to-body ratio of 81.4 percent, resolution 1080×2340 pixels and aspect ratio 19.5:9. The screen is quite sturdy because it is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, but it should be coated with anti-scratch or additional impact protectors, to make it safer.
In the box, REDMI provides a softcase, so users no longer have to buy it. With the softcase the user will not feel slippery when using the smartphone and enough to protect the body. However, users are advised to choose a more secure phone.
The screen section includes a small notch called a dot drip display as the front camera, on top of which is a speaker for listening to phone communication, and a bit to the right side of the screen is the message marker LED.
At the bottom there are three buttons when your phone is on or open lock, like the middle ‘ home ‘ button, ‘ Back ‘ button on the right and left side of the button to see the apps you have opened.
The right side of the body of REDMI Note 7, not installed button, there is only one slot for dual SIM card and microSD. However, do not be surprised when you find two places in the slot, because the SIM card 2 and microSD are in one place, so just choose the needs of the user.
On the left side, there is a volume and power button or a key booster. Meanwhile, on the lower body side, there is a USB Type C hole in the middle and accompanied by a voice speaker message and phone ringing in the left-right. On the top side there is a jack hole with a diameter of 3.5 millimeters and a sensor circle that can be used to make the smartphone as a remote control for TV, AC and others.
On the back, Redmi Note 7 puts two cameras and a flash light on top left, and just below a little to the center there is a circle for the fingerprint scanner. The bottom is written Redmi by Xiaomi.
For color options, REDMI Note 7 comes with color gradations on the back side namely Neptune Blue, Nebula Red and Space Black. Incidentally Tempo gets the variant Neptune Blue.
Overall, the settings of the buttons and body shape are the same as smartphones in general, but REDMI undertakes the left side of the body, as it is not well utilized. Also the smartphone is quite heavy, probably because it installs a large battery, making the smartphone more heavy.

Download two games namely Aspalt 8 and Mobile Legend to explore the performance of mobile phones. Both games present a rich color graphics, when playing games with Redmi Note 7, the graphical display is quite bright and the image motion is quite smooth.
However, there are some annoying things, namely the location of the speakers on the bottom side and the cable Jack earphones when playing games, because it hinders the hand. So if you don’t want to get distracted, we recommend using Bluetooth earphones. To watch a video with Redmi Note 7 is quite convenient, because the screen is big, although if viewed in more detail the image somewhat broke, but still good enough to enjoy the content.
REDMI Note 7 installed dual main camera with 48MP main sensor and 5MP depth sensor. The camera with a large sensor is the most striking thing on the REDMI Note 7, its reason, for smartphones with a low price on other brands, did not get a smartphone with a camera sensor that big.
The 48MP camera is powered by the 0.8 μm-pixel Samsung GM1 with a bright CMOS sensor on the back, which has 48 million physical pixels. The camera offers a very high resolution for outstanding detail. When shooting, the sensor uses the Tetracell technology from Samsung which combines four pixels into one large pixel of 1.6 μm. It enhances light sensitivity and makes 12MP image results brighter and clearer even in low-light conditions.
The final result is a 48MP image if it is divided into 4, each with a size of 12MP. Thus, the final result of the image is clearer and results in less noise after using a combination of four pixels into one.
To maximize the photography experience, REDMI Note 7 provides a Night Mode feature commonly found only on flagship smartphones. This feature allows users to capture HDR photos at night clearly despite the low light conditions.
With, using a combination of 1.6 um superpixel, multi-exposure HDR, large aperture at f/1.8, and AI-based automatic calibration, makes the image result clearer. And the bokeh effect is very pronounced with 5MP camera and f/2.2 aperture.
REDMI Note 7 ‘s rear camera also features AI Scene Detection that can identify 27 different atmosphere categories. This feature makes it easy for users to create stunningly bright image results for every diverse atmosphere without the need for a lot of photo editing.
For the front camera, the 13 MP sensor is supported, equipped with the latest AI features, such as AI scene detection, AI beautify and AI portraits that allow easy for users to take pictures easily.
In terms of the camera, Redmi seems to spoil users with high-quality camera features in the middle class. Overall, the camera can produce clear images, less noise, and is suitable for novice creators.
