Design and Appearance

Finally, it happened. Now Redmi Note 7 Pro is completely made of Gorilla Glass 5 glass. Elegant features and deep color – this is the real flagship. Although most may like the Nebula Red gradient overflow.

But because of the glass case, the smartphone has become a little thicker. During the test, we even accidentally dropped the device in the office. What were we surprise when Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro remained unharmed. Micro-scratches appeared, but otherwise, he withstood a hard fall. Still, we advise you not to risk it and wear a smartphone in a case.

The new Note 7 Pro also received an internal waterproof P2i coating. All ports and buttons are secured from the inside with rubber pads. Although the smartphone does not have full protection against water, it will survive random rain or high humidity. There are other changes here. Xiaomi took a long time to get the Redmi Note series to get a USB-C port. The power button and volume rocker are on the right side. Both keys have a fairly clear click and will withstand a huge number of clicks. Phone Redmi Note 7 Pro has no stereo speakers. The only speaker is on the bottom. It sounds satisfactory, and the sound is not distorted even at high volume.

The slot for SIM-cards and microSD are on the left side of the phone and, unfortunately, this is a hybrid tray. At the top, next to the 3.5 mm headphone jack, there is an infrared port, which has become an important feature of the Redmi-series.

In the center of the upper part of the display is a drop-shaped cut-out of the camera, it looks quite familiar. The dotted cut, as it is called in Xiaomi, crashes heavily into the display. The ratio of the screen to the body here is 81.4%. The frames on the top and sides of the front panel turned out to be thin, but the “chin” remained too large. Even the notification indicator set here.

The fingerprint scanner remains capacitive, it is still on the back panel. It works clearly and quickly. Redmi Note 7 Pro weighs a lot – 186 grams, but it is almost not felt due to balanced weight distribution. This is a premium phone and the Chinese company has done a really good job.

Smartphone display

Screen Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is a 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel with Full HD + resolution and 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. There is support for Widevine L1 DRM, which theoretically relieves us of problems when viewing HD-content. White balance, like color, is very accurate. If necessary, the color can be made warmer or colder. The glossy surface can interfere with the use of the smartphone in the open air, but there is no problem at maximum brightness.
409PPI is a different indicator for general use, especially considering the fact that the LCD uses an RGB matrix. The text is clear, and, as a rule, in Quad HD + there is no point for this price segment.

The screen of Redmi Note 7 Pro can give out brightness up to 450 nits. It is equipped with Xiaomi Sunlight Display technology, which increases the contrast in the sun for better readability. Although readability in sunlight is good, but not outstanding. The display of Note 7 Pro also received a nominal contrast of 1500: 1. Subjectively, black levels are in order. The contrast is still slightly better than the Mi A2.

Cameras Redmi Note 7 Pro

In addition to the updated design, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro received another major change. The smartphone boasts a 48-megapixel Sony IMX568 lens. There is also an additional 5-megapixel lens for depth.

Let Xiaomi and offers a full 48-megapixel mode in the camera interface, most do not need it. The basic idea is to increase the sensitivity and dynamic range using pixel binning. In this case, four adjacent pixels are combined here so that we get a clearer 12-megapixel image.

Redmi note 7 Pro Performance

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro runs on a Snapdragon 675 processor with 4/6 GB of RAM. This eight-core Qualcomm chipset has received 6 high-performance cores Cortex A55 and two high-performance Cortex A76. As a result, it can produce almost the same performance as the flagship Snapdragon 835, released two years ago.

Redmi Note 7 Pro chip have Adreno 612, which gives an excilent performance. The device is supported by two versions of the ROM – 64/128 GB of memory, expandable through the slot for microSD. But since the tray of the combined type will have to sacrifice the second SIM, if you need additional memory.
The Overall Performance of Redmi Note 7 Pro on PUBG Mobile is good. However, we face lags in the game but the game runs smoothly.
