One of the better budget phones with a newer water drop style notch is Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7. It has a 48MP sensor that downsamples and by default takes 12MP pictures. The battery is a large 4000Mah and for most a 2-day phone. It’s now just $189 at Banggood with coupon 4BGRN7. It’s a pre-order for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB model. And the 128GB model is $225.99 with coupon 4BGN7128. It has the Global ROM so a multilanguage one with all Android 9 languages you can think of.
While the main camera (Like so many) is I feel overhyped by Xiaomi and not a true 48MP. It still takes great shots and then if you install Google Cameras port it will really step up images and video quality as seen below in my Redmi Note 7 stock camera Vs Redmi Note 7 Google Camera App comparison below
The screen isn’t perfect, but the new trend notch, 6.3″ 2340 x 1080 IPS with a bit of edge shadowing. Still great phone for this price especially. And the SD 660 chipset power it isn’t a bad one at all. Plus this phone retains the 3.5mm jack, MicroSD flagships are missing and it has dual sim support.
I’ve ordered one myself so look for a re-review but this time the global version and it will be interesting to see if the screen shadowing around the notch has improved and any other chances since my Chinese model review? Make sure you watch my full review below for the full ins and outs of the Redmi Note 7 but for $189 I don’t think you can really find better.
