Xiaomi Redmi 7A Review
The 3-Minute Xiaomi Redmi 7A Review
Bigger, Better, Faster
The Xiaomi Redmi 7A was released in June this year, as Xiaomi’s entry-level phone. The Xiaomi brand has wowed us with the release of this device as not many devices come with a snapdragon chipset and high-quality camera for such a low cost.
The look and feel of this device are simple and compact yet very premium in feel, with a 5.45-inch HD+ LCD screen with camera bezel, with curved edges and plastic back. The device comes in four colors, matte blue, gem blue, matte black, gem red all powered by the 4000mAh battery.
The Redmi 7A is powered by Snapdragon 439 Chipset, 2GB/3GB RAM,16GB/32GB onboard storage and space to fit an extra MicroSD Card, this is all run by Android 9.0 (Pie) with the latest MIUI 10 overlay.
The Redmi 7A shocked us with its a duel 13MP and12MP rear camera and one 5MP front camera which we did not expect from an entry-level phone.

The Xiaomi Redmi 7A boasts a large 4000mAh battery that is on par with some of the flagship devices out there. It is splash protected but would like a more solid IRP rating but with the cost of this device we really can’t complain.
The device even accommodates fast charge with its 10W micro USB block. Which we have seen other brands charge extra for, this is just another reason why we find Xiaomi so affordable.
Xiaomi uses its operating system called the MIUI 10 which is placed on top of the android soft where so if you are not used to this OS it may be hard to pick up at first but it's quick to learn.
We found that this device is a little slow in comparison to flagship devices but this is an entry-level device so we can’t complain, but 4GB of ram would not hurt.
Is it for you?
This device comes with a 4000mAh battery giving you more battery life to last the whole day, and due to the Snapdragon processor, the device runs a lot smoother than other entry-level devices. The combination of the battery, processor, and camera gives you a long-lasting device good for selfies and everyday use.
What we like
The Redmi 7A comes with an amazing 4000mAh battery which Xiaomi claims will last up to 19 days.
The device also comes with face unlock and a fingerprint sensor making for easy and safe unlocking capabilities.
The option for larger text size and high-volume receiver makes this phone even easier to use and hear. The device comes with a built-in FM Radio making it handset free.
What we don’t like
Some people may feel that the 7A could have done with a larger internal storage and larger ram to improve the performance. The issue of the 7A is that it still has no IRP rating, but this is to save on production cost giving you a cheaper device.
Should you buy it?
The Redmi 7A is some of the best value for money we have seen out there on the market and we would strongly recommend this device is you are looking for an entry-level device.
