Brings many meaningful upgrades over its predecessor without a price hike

The Redmi 7A is a major upgrade over the Redmi 6A (Review) with improvements in almost all areas. The design is fresh and the build quality is better too. The display is also decent for the asking price, and the rear camera performs well under daylight.

An entry-level smartphone

from The Mobile Indian

Redmi 7A is a standard-looking smartphone from Xiaomi. There is nothing new in terms of design or display. The chipset is an upgrade from its predecessor and so is the battery capacity. As for the competition is concerned, it sure has some tough competition including Realme C2, Infinix Smart 3 Plus, Nokia 2.2 and more.
