After months of waiting, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 is finally official in Nepal. The Redmi Note 7 is one phone Nepalese had been waiting for quite a while now. The Redmi Note 7 sits above the Redmi 7 and is offered in 3 variants. The 3/32GB is priced at Rs. 21,999, the 4/64GB variant is priced at Rs. 24,999 and the 4/128GB variant is priced at 26,999.
The 4/64GB variant is the one we recommend to buyers. The 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage is going to be sufficient for most users. And in case, after months of usage, if you find that 64GB isn’t going to be sufficient for you, there’s always the option of expanding the storage capacity by using Micro-SD card.
Xiaomi has really stepped up their game by the new Redmi Note 7. Instead of the aluminum back on the earlier Redmi phones, the Note 7 uses glass on both the back and front of the glass. And to make sure that the glass doesn’t easily break, Xiaomi has put Gorilla glass 5 on both the front and back of the phone. However, we still advise you to put a phone case as glass is glass and glass breaks.

The Redmi Note 7 has an excellent 6.3-inch FUll HD+ IPS panel. As you would expect, the texts on the display are sharp and the viewing angles are just as good. As with most of the other mid-range phones, there’s a notch on the top. However, it’s small and not too intrusive. The notch is small enough to not distract you while watching video content.
The Note 7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC which performs very well, especially for a mid-range smartphone. Coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, you should be able to play all kinds of games that are currently available in the Play Store. Like I mentioned before, it’s advised to get the Redmi Note 7 with 4GB of RAM, especially if you are planning to keep the phone for a long while.
Then, there’s the camera which is the selling feature of the phone. With a 48MP Samsung Isocell GM1 sensor, you can expect really good quality images out of the Note 7. Although you will get 12MP image as your output (thanks to pixel binning), trust me, it’s for your good. The 12MP images that come out of the phone are sharp and the phone performs well even in low-lit environments. It’s not at the same level as the Samsung Galaxy S10 but it’s darn good for its class.
To top things off, the Redmi Note 7 comes with a 4000mAh battery which also supports 18W fast charging. And for the first time ever, we also get a USB-C port on a Redmi Note phone. All in all, the Redmi Note 7 is an excellent phone and one worth your money.
