Xiaomi has been able to successfully woo the budget-conscious Indian buyers and this time, the Chinese handset maker has forayed into the entry-level segment with its new launch — the Redmi 7A — that comes in two variants.

The 2GB RAM and 16GB storage version was launched at an introductory price of Rs 5,799 while the 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variant was launched for Rs 5,999, in matte blue, black and gold colours.

We used the 2GB RAM+16GB storage variant for around two weeks. Here’s our review.

With a 5.45-inch HD screen, the device looks decent; the polycarbonate body is covered with a layer to protect from accidental splashes.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor and fuelled by a 4000mAh battery, the smartphone lasted almost two days on a single charge.

There’s a 12MP primary camera and a 5MP front camera that make it a value buy for first time smartphone users.

The power and volume buttons are placed on the right side of the device while the SIM tray and SD cards slot is housed on the left.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Friday announced that it was permanently cutting the prices of five of its handsets in India.

The storage capacity of the handset can be increased up to 256GB via a microSD card slot.

A standard headphone jack is placed at the top while a micro-USB charging point is placed at the bottom.

The capacity of the speakers was good enough to alert amid mild disturbance.

Talking about the downsides of the device, we experienced some delay while switching between apps, especially when some of them were running in the background.

Low-light imaging is likely to disappoint most users.
