Xiaongươi Redngươi chú ý 7 Pro detailed review

The Redngươi cảnh báo series from Xiaomi has been one of the most successful lineup from the company. Every new iteration has seen stocks getting sold out in seconds. But more than that, every new successor of the phone (save sầu perhaps, the Redngươi chú ý 6 Pro) has been disruptive sầu for the market. So much so, that ever since I’ve been reviewing phones, I would look forward khổng lồ Xiaomi’s invite lớn the launch event. Last year, it was the SnapLong 636 và the dual-camera thiết lập that propelled the Redmày chú ý 5 Pro và later, the Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro to the top. This year, Xiaongươi plans khổng lồ outbởi vì its previous offering with the Redngươi cảnh báo 7 Pro, a phone with a 48MP.. camera on the baông xã.

Among peers offering cameras with 12MP and 16MPhường resolution, a 48MP.. camera sounds lượt thích an effortless win. But even though the new camera brings big improvements, it’s not everything that the Redmi chú ý 7 Pro should be known for. It’s also notable for bringing the Qualcomilimet SnapLong 675 SoC down lớn the mid-range segment, after the Vivo V15 Pro debuted it in the high-over segment. But is a 48MP camera & a brvà new processor enough lớn make the Redmi Note 7 Pro the best mid-range smartphone to lớn buy? Let’s find out —

Design: A glassy affair

*

Apart from the hi-res camera và the new processor, another important thing one should know before buying the Xiaomày Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro is that it’s made out of glass. This is the first time Xiaomi has used a glass-based thiết kế on a Redngươi cảnh báo điện thoại thông minh, & it comes with some tall promises. For one, Xiaomi claimed you can crack walnuts using the phone’s rear panel without shattering the glass casing. Not that anyone would want khổng lồ vì chưng that with a phone, but the point is that despite having glass on both sides, the phone is durable và won’t craông chồng open if its falls. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides.

While the phone certainly didn’t break when dropped from near my pocket, it did register a whole lot of scratches for being in the pocket along with my keys. It’s better khổng lồ put the phone inside a case immediately after unboxing it.

Having said that, the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro looks much more premium than any other Redngươi cảnh báo phone before. Xiaomày experimented with gradient colours for the first time & came out with two variants — Nebula Red & Neptune Blue. Both variants change colour when light reflects on it, similar to the design you will often find in Honor & Huawei smartphones. There’s also the Space Black variant for the conservative buyer, which we received for đánh giá.

The Space Blaông chồng variant attracts a lot of fingerprints & we had lớn keep using a micro-fiber cloth to keep the toàn thân miễn phí of smudges. There’s also a exorbitantly large camera bump that makes the phone wobbly when put on a surface. The edges of the camera bump also attracts a lot of dust, something that even with a case on, you won’t be able to lớn avoid.

The rear panel is kept minimal with the Redmi logo in the bottom, the camera module on the top left arranged vertically, and the fingerprint sensor mounted in the top center where it’s reached easily. On the front, the Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro is all screen, almost. There’s a small U-shaped notch that Redmày calls the Dot Notch which houses the front camera. It’s a welcome tăng cấp over the ugly, rectangular notch that the Redmày Note 6 Pro came with. There is bezels around the display, especially at the bottom, but it’s much less invasive and becomes invisible when watching something on screen.

The cảnh báo 7 Pro is also notable for introducing the USB-C port for charging & retaining the 3.5mm tai nghe jack despite Xiaongươi announcing a new pair of wireless earbuds. Lastly, it maintains Xiaomi legacy by offering the IR blaster on top.

Display: Better, but not the best

*

With the notch shrunk down khổng lồ a dot (well, almost), the focus is now all on the display. And it’s distinctly better than what the Xiaongươi Redmi lưu ý 5 Pro & the chú ý 6 Pro offered last year. While the lưu ý 7 Pro is using an LCD panel, Xiaomày claimed it’s a LTPS In-Cell LCD panel. LTPS is more sophisticated & it’s cheaper to produce than an IPS display. It also saves power và offers a more consistent viewing experience.

The Redmày Note 7 Pro offers a 6.3-inch display with FullHD+ resolution. We registered peak brightness of 537 lux in our lab, which is slightly more than the Redngươi lưu ý 6 Pro. The display doesn’t look all that extraordinary though. The contrast ratio is not that high và the colours don’t look as dynamic as you would find on an AMOLED panel which the Samsung Galaxy M30 offers. The panel is just about sufficient for daily use. The sunlight legibility has been improved và there’s less colour washing seen when the phone is used outdoors.

You bởi get the option khổng lồ tweak the colours and contrast levels using preloaded presets, but we suggest you keep it unchanged unless you know what you’re doing. There’s also the usual blue-light filter that promises lớn protect the eyes from harmful radiations. Xiaongươi even offers the much-required Widevine L1 certification that allows one to stream nội dung on Netflix và Amazon Prime Video in HD.

The Xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro’s display is perfectly usable, but we wouldn’t Hotline it the best since there are AMOLED panels now being offered by Samsung in that price range.

Performance: Sets a new mid-range benchmark

*

What’s a Redmày lưu ý device without introducing a new processor? While the Redngươi chú ý 6 Pro received a lot of flak for not offering a generation upgrade in performance, the lưu ý 7 Pro more than makes up for it. It brings the Qualcomm SnapLong 675 down to the mid-range segment, ensuring the lưu ý 7 Pro’s performance is unmatched in the price segment it’s offered at.

The SnapLong 675 is notable for using the same Cortex A76 cores as the flagship Snaprồng 855. It has two high performance Kryo 460 Gold cores clocked at 2.0GHz along with six Kryo 460 Silver cores clocked at 1.7GHz for power efficient tasks. These are Ccoupled with twhat is either 4GB or 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM và 64GB or 128GB of storage. We received the 4GB variant for nhận xét, và the benchmark tests we performed on the phone pegged the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro on top of the danh sách, in almost all tests.

On AnTuTu, the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro scored an all-time high of 179186 in the mid-range segment while on Geekbench Single Vi xử lý Core & Multi-core tests, it scored 2397 & 6382 respectively, both consistently higher than the scores we have sầu seen on mid-range phones before. The Kirin 710-powered Honor 10 Lite does come close lớn beating it in terms of CPU performance, but it’s the Snaprồng 675’s Adreno 612 GPU that cputs itthe Redngươi above sầu the rest. Graphics benchmark lượt thích the 3DMark Slingshot test also pegged the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro on top with a score of 1836 while on the AI Benchmark kiểm tra, the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro performed well enough scoring 5908, much higher than phones with Snapdragon 660 và Kirin 710 performed in the thử nghiệm. The MediaTek Helio P60 came cthất bại khổng lồ beating it in terms of AI performance though when we tested the Redmi lưu ý 7 Pro against the Oppo F11 Pro.

The Snapdragon 675 on the Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro is also quite adept at handling games. We played PUBG điện thoại & Asphalt 9 on the phone và recorded the numbers on Gamebench. PUBG di động registered a high frame rate of 39fps with 93 percent frame rate stability while on Asphalternative text 9, the phone clocked a poor 22 FPS with 52 percent stability. Xiaomi did announce the Redngươi Note 7 Pro is particularly tuned to lớn handle PUBG thiết bị di động better, and it shows in the results. If you’re planning to buy a phone simply to lớn play the game in high settings, this is the phone lớn go for in the mid-range segment.

The Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. The interface is the same as the Redngươi cảnh báo 6 Pro with gesture navigation và the usual MIUI suite of features like a personalised minus-1 screen, no app drawer & a theme engine.

The lưu ý series has maintained a pattern of setting benchmarks in performance in the mid-range segment, & the Redmi lưu ý 7 Pro is no different.

Camera: Flaunt the 48MP, shoot in 12MP

*

While the performance boost is more or less expected from a new Redmày cảnh báo device, the camera on the Redngươi chú ý 7 Pro took us by surprise. The Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro offers a 48MPhường rear camera coupled with a 5MPhường. depth sensor. On the front is a 13MP. shooter for selfies. The chú ý 7 Pro has the same camera that’s there on the Honor View trăng tròn — The Sony IMX586 sensor. It’s a 1/2-inch sensor that packs 48 million 0.8 micron pixels. By mặc định, the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro delivers 12MP. photos which is achieved by binning four pixels into one lớn create a large 1.6um super px that captures more information. The 48MP. mode has to be manually turned on, either from the camera thực đơn, or in the Pro Mode.

We did a detailed chạy thử of the 48MPhường. camera on the Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro,comparing it against the 48MPhường Samsung GM-1 sensor on the Vivo V15 Proas well ascomparing the default 12MP.. photos against the 48MPhường version of the same phokhổng lồ.

For the native 48MP output, Wwe found that the 48MPhường Samsung GM-1 sensor on the Vivo V15 Pro was far ahead of the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro’s Sony IMX586 sensor in terms of detail reproduction & sharpness. The only place where the 48MPhường Sony IMX586 outshined its Samsung counterpart was in dynamic range, & that too only by a hair. That could be the fault of Xiaomi’s aggressive softening or the use of lenses of inferior quality. Whatever be the case, the 48MP resolution images results certainly weren’t quite usable, especially if you plan to take a large print of the 8000x6000 pixels photo lớn. The camera also takes a noticeable amount of time to process the image. During that time, the camera app freezes và you won’t be able khổng lồ shoot another image till the one you shot is processed. That’s weird because Qualcomm’s spec-các mục for the Snaprồng 675 which powers the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro specifies that the chipset supports zero-shutter-lag when shooting a 48MP snapshot. Xiaongươi must have opted out of it.

Having said that, the 12MP.. photos that the Redngươi Note 7 Pro produces by default, are far richer và vibrant. The company suggests users lớn shoot more in the default resolution since it takes up much less space. Indeed, 48MPhường photos taken from the phone took up an average 18MB to 22MB, while the 12MP images ranged from 5MB khổng lồ 7MB. Using the AI mode also increased the file size lớn around 11MB to lớn 12MB. But saving space is not the only reason to shoot at 12MP.. The 12MPhường images that the phone produces are far superior to lớn any other mid-range smartphone camera right now. In its price range, the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro is rivalled by the Realme 2 Pro, Honor 10 Lite, Samsung Galaxy M30 & more. None of the devices manage to lớn produce the details the Redmày chú ý 7 Pro offers in its 12MP photos, be it macro shots, or landscape shots with lots of lights & shadows. Even the dynamic range has been improved by a long mile. The photos do come out really good.

In fact, the Redmày lưu ý 7 Pro punches far above sầu its weight. We compared the photos taken by the phone with ones taken by the OnePlus 6T, and the Redmày Note 7 Pro is just as good, if not a little better. Xiaomi even drew comparisons against the iPhone XS, but we didn’t go that far as the comparison will be pointless for the over user considering the two phones operate in opposite ends of the price spectrum.

What we did like about the Redmày chú ý 7 Pro’s camera was not its ability to lớn take 48MP photos, but the camera’s AI mode & the Night Mode. The former is able lớn recognise the comtháng scenes you are shooting and apply the relevant filters & effects. We took an image in mặc định 12MPhường and then with the AI mode turned on. The colour was definitely more realistic with AI mode turned on. Even the trắng balance was adjusted khổng lồ make the image appear warmer, which went well with the overall aesthetics of the photo.

The night mode on the Redngươi chú ý 7 Pro also proved quite helpful. The phone takes 7 rapid shots when you tap the shutter button in the Night mode. These seven images are then fused together lớn achieve sầu higher detail, sharpness and a better exposure & to lớn remove blur & noise. The results bởi offer a lot more light in the pholớn than the mặc định mode, however, the sharpness is a little too much. More often than not, the image appeared overprocessed. However, it did manage lớn offer far better low-light shots than most other mid-range phones we have sầu tested so far.

The Redngươi chú ý 7 Pro is also quite adept at taking well-lit selfies. The front camera can automatically detect when you need HDR. You can also add beauty effects and turn on scene-recognition. It does have sầu a tendency lớn blow up the highlights, but the facial tones & details are well-preserved.

Both the front và rear cameras offer portrait mode. Xiaongươi even went a step ahead khổng lồ offer a variety of portrait lighting effects. While the edge separation is more or less perfect, the blurring itself looks artificial. A shallow depth of field from a DSLR will have sầu a gradient bokeh which increases as you go further from the subject. In case of the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro, it’s all the same.

Overall, the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro is the best camera phone you can buy right now for under Rs 15,000. It may not use the full potential of the large Sony sensor, but the little it does is enough khổng lồ make the chú ý 7 Pro one of the best mid-range phone for photography.

Battery: Lasts long, really long

*

The Redmi lưu ý series have never shied away from offering a long battery life. But for the past few years, Redngươi has capped the battery capathành phố lớn 4,000mAh. Combined with a glass body toàn thân, the battery does add to the weight of the device, but it also offers more than a day's worth of charge. The Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro managed to lớn last over 10 hours in our Geekbench Battery Test. The battery percent went down from 67 percent to 63 percent after 15 minutes of PUBG sản phẩm điện thoại, while a 30 minute binge of Mad Men on Netflix drained the battery by 6 percent. This is much lesser than what we have noticed in other mid-range phones lượt thích the Samsung Galaxy Mtrăng tròn and the Honor 10 Lite.

Xiaomi even offers tư vấn for Quick Charge 4.0 in the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro. Using a QC4.0 certified charger, you can fast charge the phone with 18W charging. Tragically, however, the Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro only comes with a 10W fast charger that tops up the phone in around two hours. Xiaongươi doesn’t even have sầu a QC 4.0 charger that you can separately buy. There are a handful of options, but we can’t guarantee it will be safe to lớn use.

Bottomline

Having used the phone for well over a fortnight, I am now sure the 48MP camera is what the Redmi chú ý 7 Pro will be remembered for. It will go down in history khổng lồ become the first điện thoại thông minh under Rs 15,000 lớn offer an ultra high-resolution camera. Ironically however, the phone is weakest when shooting photos in 48MPhường. More importantly, the Redngươi lưu ý 7 Pro’s hardware will put a lot of pressure on its rival to lớn either match or come out with something even better. Either way, it’s the buyer who ultimately wins. If you are in the market for an affordable performer, look no further than the Xiaongươi Redmày cảnh báo 7 Pro. Good luông chồng getting your hands on one right now, though.
