Cyberchum, 14 Jun 2020It's okay for you to talk-up the phone you like, and exaggerate it's qualities. Those who wish... moreYou agreed with me on almost every problem I pointed out in Xiaomi phones. Yet you also say I'm making "cheap attempt" to discredit Xiaomi?
You're just on ego-trip at this point, agreeing with me while making an attempt to mock me.
Do you think wasting people's money is a joke? It's NOT okay to over exaggerate any phone's qualities!
I don't want people to take my word for it. That's the entire reason I went out of my way to give examples, point out tests by Gsmarena and gave material like FPS difference of G85 vs G70 to research about. So readers can CONFIRM whether what I say is true or not themselves.
Don't try word manipulation.
I made no attempt to discredit any other phone. I only made an attempt to help OP get best value for his money, doesn't matter which phone or which brand. If that bothers you, good. Keep hurting yourself over your loyalty to Xiaomi.
FYI: Snapdragon 660 Xiaomi phone giving lower FPS than a under-clocked Snapdragon 636 Asus phone is not "SLIGHTLY" lower performance. That's a mind-boggling HUGE drop in performance!! Same for other comparisons I listed.
Why do you even have a opinion on phones when don't even know what performance to expect from their chipset, or that phone in general?
Cyberchum, 14 Jun 2020Are you done with leaving replies? Have your temper calmed, or you still fuming?
ONLY a tec... more1. You're the one who couldn't handle me pointing out flaws of Xiaomi phones. Don't try to turn it round on me. My comment wasn't in favour of any brand.
2. If you can't read English, why even argue here? OP asked which phone is better & I told him aspects of both Infinix Note 7 & Redmi Note 9. How is that "drifting off the question"?
Is it because I suggested a phone that's way better than Redmi Note 9 but is in same price? Is that seriously what you're angry about?
Who made the rule that I can't suggest better phones to people? You? Or in your words, you aren't smart enough to do that?
It's clear to me you're a Xiaomi fan boy. Or in your own words, you're paid by them or doing free publicity?
3. I've same human eyes and I've seen what Infinix Note 7 display looks like. I already said if you're obsessed with display sharpness, maybe then you won't like its display. If you scroll down here, you'll see many ACTUAL users of Infinix Note 7 saying its display doesn't look bad.
- Are you trying to say they're lying, blind and stupid? And we should listen to a Xiaomi fan boy instead? No thanks.
You're more than just tech-dumb if you're still arguing about it.
4. "Some RN7 users"? You'll find complaint for weak signal reception on almost every other page of Xiaomi phones. Same for many others, including performance, heating, battery etc.
Eh, "Nigeria". Why do you all Nigerians suck up to Xiaomi so much? I must research how Xiaomi market itself to Nigeria.
Or are you same Nigerian guy from before, who coincidentally, also bought RN7?
PS: Naming lower priced phones with almost half of your phone's specs doesn't help your argument. It only makes your phone look worse for competing with cheap phones.

Those who wish to take your word for it would. Your cheap and ludicrous attempt to discredit other phones, just to do that, however, is what it is: Cheap and ludicrous.

Compare R... moreAre you done with leaving replies? Have your temper calmed, or you still fuming?
ONLY a tech noob would say that HD looks good on a 7 incher. Since it looks so good, why do Tecno use FHD on some other phones, when they could outfit them with your good-looking HD? Oh, ltps compensates the detail? Other top manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei are yet to realize that, then. They have a lot of catch up to do to get to Tecno's standard. LMAO.
Yes, chipset performance on budget Xiaomi phones are SLIGHTLY worse than they are on some other phones using the same chipset. Admitted!
Yes, some users have complained of not-so-stellar reception on RN7. Maybe it has to do with country/location, because I've never had reception issue on my unit here in Nigeria. Actually, on occasions when my two closest friends using Tecno Pouvoir 3 plus and Infinix Hot 8 respectively complain of poor connectivity, mine works fine. Same service provider, Same location. All 3 phones on LTE. Please, remind me again; LTE Cat what is Infinix Note 7 on? Measly Cat 4; two generations old RN7 has LTE Cat12.
Someone asked for which is better between phone "A" and phone "B", what did you do? Drift and swerve. Instead of rationally answering the question, you introduced phones he didn't ask you of. Aren't you super smart?
Man, if you're intelligent enough, you'd know that I meant that you are doing free publicity, just like the other fellow that said that this phone is better than iPhone 11. With poo logic that it's all about Camera and battery. Camera wise, this phone is light years behind iPhone 11. And budget phones, like this one, are known for big battery. Tecno wouldn't pay you a dime!
My note battery is always running down fast even when am not using is it normal or there is factory error or what?
An external stylus would be nice given the new update. Thanks

Compare Redmi Note 8 Pro with Realme 6 on Gsmarena & see FPS difference. Or any MIUI phone of your choice with Realme/Nokia/other phones having same chipset.

Me: I explained to OP what he can expect from both phones.
Me: I told OP to go for Redmi Note 9 if they're in same price, because of better display. Just know its battery & performance is not better than Infinix Note 7.
Mr. Cyberchum: TeCnO bEtTer be pAyInG yOu well. I swear the intellect of some people here..........
That's why I always advise, if you want real user reviews, go to Telegram/Facebook groups of that specific phone or maybe XDA. Gsmarena is full of wanna be tech experts like you.
Cyberchum, 13 Jun 2020You really do like blowing silent horns. To even imply that G70 could have equal performance a... more1. Start by telling me how much more FPS can Helio G85 pull compared to Helio G70?
If you can't, back off with your wanna-be-tech-expert attitude.
2. I implied MIUI phones having lower performance than their chipsets, NOT that Helio G70 has equal performance as Helio G85.
Big difference. MIUI decreases superior chipsets performance to that of weaker chipsets or even lower. Same reason a 660c engine would give crappy performance on a loading truck.
But it's too complicated for you, isn't it?
3. I mentioned Redmi Note 7 as an example so OP can research what I said easily, as it's the most discussed Xiaomi phone. And yes, I've used RN7. You can compare any MIUI phone of your choice with any phone from brands like Realme/Nokia that have same chipsets.
- I didn't mention Redmi Note 8 because it's worse than Redmi Note 7 in almost every way. What I said about MIUI & chipsets is true for all MIUI phones, including RN8, RN8 Pro, RN9 etc.
And yes, Redmi Note 9s, RN8 & RN8 Pro also have complaint for weak signal reception. Read user reviews. I can't recall any MIUI phone that doesn't have complaint for weak signal reception from many users.
Or you can find me some that don't?
4. My comparison is valid because both phones are from Xiaomi and both phones have MIUI.
It's a trend in Xiaomi phones and there has never been an exception as far as I've seen, and I've checked over 20 Xiaomi phones in detail.
5. Your prefer smaller & sharper display. That's fine. But you try to push it on others that bigger size is a Con? Don't be stupid now.
Try watching a video on 6.2inch display. A large portion from both sides will not be covered by Video & appear as black/blank. You're basically actually only watching on a 5-5.5inch screen on those phones.
Infinix Note 7 size reduces that problem.
Secondly, Infinix Note 7 display is LTPS IPS LCD - not IPS LCD. It makes up for some of its low resolution with better viewing angles than IPS LCD/AMOLED/Super AMOLED displays. Many brands, including Xiaomi tried similar thing with AMOLED display on big size phones as well.
- Yes, it's still a low resolution display but it doesn't look bad at all. That's what I'm saying. I would only not recommend this phone to someone obsessed with display sharpness like you are. For 80-90% of the users, its display is perfectly good.
If you disagree, I'll repeat your statement to you: "Have you tried it for yourself to say its display is as bad as you claim?"
6. Lastly, LMFAO. You aren't very smart if you think people get paid to write fake reviews on sites like Gsmarena.
Question for you : If I'm paid by Infinix, why am I saying all previous Infinix phones were overpriced and useless in this very forum while people who don't like this phone are saying those were better?
I'm a marketing student and let me tell you guy this, it would be a very expensive and useless strategy to do this sort of thing. Only place where it would be a little effective would be on blogs directly managed by Infinix - where they also directly speak to customers.
I've mostly seen this done by Vivo on Facebook pages & groups.
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2020Isn't Redmi Note 9 in price range of Realme 5 Pro? You should never buy Redmi Note 9 over Real... moreYou really do like blowing silent horns. To even imply that G70 could have equal performance as the G85 invalidates everything you're to say. He asked about the Redmi Note 9, and you brought up the Redmi Note 7. One question: Are both of them the same phones? You know that there's Redmi Note 8, right? Why refer back to 2 generation old phone?
Bigger display as pro? No tech knowledgeable person would pick a pixelated ~7 incher over a FHD ~6.5 incher. Infinix Note 7 pro's size is already a con on its own. The Redmi Note 9 has weak signal? Oh, you've used it to know? Mind pointing to collaborative sources? Tecno (Transsion) better be paying you well for the job you're doing. Even the Redmi 9 would represent a better buy than this crap.
I have check mobile harware with "Deroid Info"
It Shows back camera 12mp
And front 16 mp
So how its 48mp works
If hardware i 12 Mp
Noir, 13 Jun 2020I'll advise you to get Redmi note 9 because it has more components than note 7 like the Cornin... moreOnly thing you're right about is infrared port and reverse charging. But only real advantage is in its display, in my opinion.
Never trust Gorilla Glass 5 vs 3 kind of specs. *All* of these brands often use low quality gorilla glass, making even Gorilla Glass 6 scratch and break as easily as Gorilla Glass 3 or lower.
Only way to compare Gorilla Glass is to test it yourself or watch somebody else test it, like Gupta guy from YouTube.
Secondly, G85 GPU is only marginally more powerful than G70. If it was Helio G90T, then we could say it was better. In practice, its performance is same or lower than Infinix Note 7.
Problem with MIUI phones is that they always give lower performance & battery than other phones with same chipsets. So you need a much more powerful MIUI phone to consider it more powerful than Infinix Note 7.
Here's how they compare:
- RN7 with SD660 has similar/lower performance than SD636 phones like Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.
- Pocofone F1 with SD845 has similar performance to some SD835 phones like Nokia 8.
- Redmi Note 8 Pro gives lower FPS in games than Realme 6 despite having same chipset.
The same is in case of battery of MIUI phones. Redmi Note 9 battery would last 10-15% less than Infinix Note 7. Also account for more ideal battery drain.

Details, highlights, shadows, colours, contrast, skin tones etc are what makes camera better. All of which you can easily see in this phone's LTPS display.
2. Infinix Note 4 and other phones you mentioned are so bad I don't understand why you would buy them - let alone compare with this much better phone.
3. Hell no. You don't know anything about games (or performance), either. Do you know how much power it would take to play PUBG on 1080p/FHD resolution?
It seems you've no idea about chipsets either.
PUBGM runs on 720p by default on all phones. It doesn't matter whether your display is 720p, 1080p or even 4K resolution - it'll be played on 720p resolution.
SD660/665, Helio P60/70, Helio G70/80, Kirin 710/710F would give you 10-24FPS if you played PUBGM on 1080p resolution.
It would take Snapdragon 845 phones to play PUBG with 30-35FPS on FHD resolution, which is still too low to play games.
4. There is an upgrade in charging. The upgrade is in quality of parts and actually charging your phone fast.
These days, all phones claim to have 18watt charging. In reality, they only charge as fast as 10watt charging phones or even slower. Like Redmi Note 7, which charges slower than Realme 3 & Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.
Infinix Note 7 is one of the few phones that actually charges fast. 100% 5000mAh battery in around 2 hours.
While phones like Redmi Note 7 charges its 4000mAh battery in close to 2.5 hours.
5. It comes with Android 10 with features from latest XOS, which even lets you uninstall bloatwares and you still complain about OS?
I think you're half drunk, brother.
ChovuGates, 07 Jun 2020Do you understand the meaning of upgrade n downgrade. Fast we start with Chipset Helio G70 is ... moreI said note 7 is a downgrade because of secren and Android system. You can't have a G70 processor, quad camera and take a 720p screen on it. Since note 4 all infinx note's have a 1080p screen. With the note 5 I'm in Android 10, when it was launch it came with oreo (8.0) and I still receive Android security patch. Before and after note 5, there is not infinix phone that can do it. Fast charging technology (FCT) is in infinix note's since note 3 pro. Note 5 have FCT. UPGRADING is improving by addind or replacing some equipments and raise to a higher standard. I still saying note 7 is a downgrade phone because it's haven't the 1080p scren that last note have. You can't see the beauty of your quad camera pictures in it. You can't enjoy full graphics of your game's. Person who playing games in 1080p screen or plus will be agree with me.
Junaid ch, 11 Jun 2020Please help me which one should I buy? Infinix note 7 or Redmi note 9.I'll advise you to get Redmi note 9 because it has more components than note 7 like the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 against the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the Infinix also Redmi is also splash proof and has a higher chipset than note 7 which is MediaTek G85 vs MediaTek G70 on the note 7 another feature is that it supports infrared while note 7 don't and it has a higher battery capacity than the note 7 with reverse charging.
This is a very good phone from Infinix but I don't know why Infinix still continue to use a cat4 LTE network for their phone...at least they should upgrade it a little...it's one of the best phones I have used especially in the performance aspects but Infinix could do more on their network aspects.
please guys, its June already, has the phone been lunch in the Nigeria market if yes ,how much does it cost? i am in Madalla Niger state. waiting to hear from you guys
I don't like the fact that it has a low ppi cos what's the point of having a large screen size and having a low ppi when other phones with lesser screen size have better screen resolutions eg phones like s5 pro beats note 7 in this area. This reason alone is very discouraging to me
The phone is nice looking. But some features are not what I expected from this phone. The screen resolution is very low( FHD should have gone well with the cameras), there is no sensor to lock the screen while the phone is on the ear, highlighting - copy part of sms is not supported etc. I'm really disappointed. Infinix zero 4plus served me well
