Overview

Redmi’s flagship series is the Note series. First launched back in 2014 as the third phone by Xiaomi in India, the Note series has come a long way, branching out into different directions in order to cater to more and more different customers. The Note 7s is another attempt in the same direction, combining above-average performance with flagship features. The Note 7s has a superb build quality, thanks to the Gorilla Glass 5 panels on its front and back that offer a unique minimalistic look to the phone. Sporting a 6.3″ IPS panel, the Note 7s has a pixel density of 409 PPI, giving it superb clarity at a mindblowing body to screen ratio of 81.4%.

Featuring Xiaomi’s waterdrop display, the Note 7 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor that is coupled with an Adreno 512 graphics chip. This offers the Note 7s a much-needed edge over its competition in this list in terms of performance and gaming capabilities. But the fun doesn’t stop there, Xiaomi has included a rear 48mp flagship sensor with an aperture of f1.8 that offers unmatched image capturing capabilities in all lighting conditions. On the front, the phone sports a 13mp camera for taking the perfect selfie for all your social media needs.

Additional Features

  • Splash Resistant: The Note 7s is rated IPX3 which means that it can withstand splashes of water and gentle rain easily without affecting its function. But this does not mean that you can go swimming with it or get drenched with it in heavy rain.
  • Front And Back Gorilla Glass 5: Gorilla Glass 5 is the 5th iteration of hardened smartphone glass from the house of Corning. Having them on the front and back of your Note 7s instead of just normal glass ensures that it can withstand more than just a few bumps and is durable enough for years to come.
  • 48+5mp f1.8 Rear Camera: The 48mp camera on the back is coupled with a 5mp depth sensor for superior low light capability. The Note 7s features gyro EIS allowing you to stabilize your camera footage as it is being captured. This means a smooth and steady motion, even while running or cycling.
  • Likely To Get Android 10: With the release of Android 10 just around the corner and many older Xiaomi phones slated for an update, it is only a matter of time before the Note 7s gets its own Android 10 upgrade. This will ensure future security updates allowing you to use the phone securely for a few years to come.

Verdict

The Redmi Note 7s is a great futureproof choice if you are looking for a phone that performs well and has good image capturing abilities. The Note 7s has the Snapdragon 660 along with the Adreno 512 to handle most of the AAA game titles with ease. Games like fortnite are known to support the same hardware and should be compatible with the Note 7s very soon. Its 48mp camera along with its 5mp depth sensor and EIS will help you capture memories without fail for years to come. All in all, if you can go to the limit of your budget, then you should definitely go for the Redmi Note 7s.

Overview

Xiaomi's A series is a tad different from its Redmi phones in the same price range. Unlike its counterparts that run on Xiaomi's proprietary MIUI, the A-series offers its users stock android experience by running Google's Android One UI. The stock android experience is something that was usually available only in flagship devices but thanks to ventures like A series by Xiaomi, lower-end markets can experience the stock android experience as well.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is a 5.99" smartphone sporting an IPS LCD panel that has a pixel density of 403 PPI. This allows for deeper blacks and vibrant hues owing to a much better overall multimedia experience on the device. The A2 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset that is coupled with an Adreno 512 GPU for optimum performance all throughout the device. Unlike the Note 7s on this list, the A2 features a 77.4% body to screen ratio which means that slimmer bezels are visible at the top and bottom of this device. This might be a deal-breaker for some but the device comes with a Type C connector and is officially eligible for an Android 10 update. This makes it extremely relevant in today's smartphone market despite being launched more than a year ago.

Additional Features

  • Aluminium Body: Unlike most smartphones in this range, the A2 has an aluminum body and is available in 3 attractive colors. This not only improves its overall look and design but also increases its durability against bumps, falls, scratches and time.
  • Type C Port: The type C port has been the talk of the town since its launch and if rumors are to be believed, then. O most manufacturers will be pushing its use over the years eventually making ports like micro USB and USB obsolete. Having USB C not only makes the A2 futureproof but also gives you access to the plethora of otg adaptors currently flooding the markets.
  • Quick Charge 4: The addition of quick charge 4 is great for people that are always on the go as the A2 can be fully charged in under 2 hours with a QC compatible charger.
  • Upgradable To Android 10: The sure shot upgrade to android 10 not only promises better performance and security but also opens up a whole new world of apps and features that come along with Android 10.

Verdict

The MI A2 is the go-to choice for you if you are looking for a stock android experience. It has the same chipset and GPU as the Note 7s, making it equally powerful and the upgrade to Android 10 will give you access to new and exciting features

Overview

The Redmi 7 is the seventh iteration by Xiaomi in its medium-range of smartphones. Affordably priced, the Redmi 7 comes with a 6.2" Waterdrop IPS LCD infinity display that has a pixel density of 269 PPI for all your media consumption needs. The screen is made using Gorilla Glass 5 for extra durability and the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 632 coupled with an Adreno 506 graphics chip. This allows the Redmi 7 to handle most daily tasks without a single hiccup. In terms of its image capturing capabilities, the Redmi 7 has the same 12+2 mp sensor on its rear that can be found in most budget smartphones today. It offers great image capturing abilities for its specs and even supports different camera modes like portrait, panorama, HDR and much more. On its front, the Redmi 7 sports an 8mp camera that supports 1080p recording at 30fps.

Additional Features

  • Splash resistant: Like the Note 7s, the Redmi 7 is IPX3 certified which makes it more than capable of withstanding a couple of splashes and light rain.
  • Dedicated SD card slot: Most Redmi phones are infamous for using the second sim slot as an SD card slot. This forces you to choose between a second sim or extra memory, which many people don't want to do. Thankfully the Redmi 7 has a dedicated SD card slot, allowing you to do both.

Verdict

The Redmi 7 is a great new affordable option that is bound to keep getting updates from Xiaomi in the near future. Its newer waterdrop infinity display might appeal to many users and the Snapdragon 632 offers decent performance for daily usage and light to medium gaming. If you are looking for a budget phone with great features and more than decent performance then the Redmi 7 is a great choice for the price of Rs. 8,999.

Naturally, the device has a PowerVR GE8320 chipset for all its graphics processing speed. Although older, the Redmi 6 offers surprisingly great performance even by today's standards, offering a great gaming experience on many popular titles.

Verdict

All in all, the Redmi 6 is a great affordable option that offers an amazing price to performance ratio thanks to its affordable price of Rs. 7,909 in 2019. The phone will perform all daily tasks including social media and instant messaging without ever running out of memory, thanks to its battery efficient Mediatek Helio P22 chip that offers great performance, even in terms of gaming.

Overview

Our last addition to this list is the Redmi 6 Pro. Slated aa the 'Pro' version of the previously discussed model, this iteration of the 6th series by Redmi features a 5.8" IPS LCD screen that has a pixel density of 432ppi. This allows for much deeper blacks and more vibrant colors, owing to an excellent media consumption experience on the Redmi 6 Pro. Apart from the screen, the Redmi 6 pro also differs in terms of build quality from the Redmi 6 as it has an aluminum body adding to the overall durability of the device. The Redmi 6 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor that clocks in at 2.0 GHz for superior processing speed. The chipset is accompanied by an Adreno 506 graphics chip for all its graphically intensive needs. This setup allows the Redmi 6 to handle most popular games with ease, with the exception of some AAA titles mainly due to lack of optimization with Xiaomi's in house android experience, MIUI.

For capturing images, the Redmi 6 Pro is fitted with a 12mp camera on its rear that is assisted by a 5mp depth sensor for exceptional image capturing abilities. On its front, the Redmi 6 Pro sports a 5mp sensor that offers great low light performance for excellent selfies.

Additional Features

  • Aluminum body: The Redmi 6 pro has a unibody aluminum frame that not only lends to its overall appeal but also offers superior durability over plastic bodies. If you are somebody that drops their phone a lot or is generally aloof about its whereabouts, then Redmi 6 Pro might be the phone for you.
  • Dedicated SD card slot: Most Redmi phones offer the capability to expand your storage but that is often at the cost of a second sim card slot. If you are used to using two sims then this choice might create a big conundrum for you. Thankfully, the Redmi 6 Pro features a dedicated SD card slot which will allow you to expand your storage without sacrificing any sim slot.

Verdict

The Redmi 6 Pro is a better and more affordable choice if you are a person that does a lot of media consumption on their mobile device. Its superior screen with a pixel density of 432ppi offers great color reproduction and excellent clarity for an immersive media consumption experience. So if you are looking for a great multimedia device that can handle everyday tasks as well, then the Redmi 6 Pro is the answer to all your prayers. Its Snapdragon 625 processor will not only handle everyday tasks but even allow you to do some light to heavy gaming from time to time.
