I don't see why you're even comparing it to the Redmi Note 7, even the Redmi Note 5 beats it.

You blame it on hype?
Wow, people are never happy.
Shadocx, 06 May 2019That's quite high mate, certainly not pocket height. The 3 GB/32 GB is 199.9 Euros in France,... morein europe pricing this model at such a mark-up defeats the whole point of this phone. It was supposed to be the new budget king. they did it only for this model because of hype. The redmi s2 sold at proper price (about140 euros)
No more need to promote redmi note 7. People prefers the Pro version.
This is one of the drawbacks of having a high tech generation, you cant tell whether its edited or not ! HAHAHA :D
Marco M, 06 May 2019But it's not Xiaomi, it is Redmi. They're standing on their own legs now, even though they're ... moreI see, didn't know they're so separated.
Still though, the resistance to rapid change in atmospheric pressure has very questionable use for most users. Resistance to extreme cold is... Fine I guess, but my issue is that what absolute majority of users care is first and foremost drop/physical pressure resistance and somewhat a water resistance.
As shown by multiple testers, Redmi absolutely failed with the absolutely most vital part of durability - the physical one (by combining large size, glass back and dubious internal structure) - yet still advertises the phone as "durable".
The problem here is that they realize that people want their phones durable so they aim at the 'weak spot' of customers by beguiling them with the questionable durability claims when they have virtually nothing serious to support it with.
I wouldn't mind at if they did some serious testing, but literally everything they do is this sly, shifty, subtle claims that lure you in but promise nothing because they know they can't deliver. It's exactly the kind of behaviour you expect from the shady small chinese manufacturers who photoshop the phone on their aliexpress page with thinner bezels than they actualy are. It's dirty and pathetic in my eyes.
JV, 06 May 2019Where are those Flat Earthers when you need them??Flat earthers will say its a fake and the videos and photos are took with AI turned on which is programmed to adjust a straight line to make a curvature LoL

They do the same with flagship phones. They don't have micro SD support or headphone jacks but cheaper phones do. These days the less you pay for a phone the more useful features it has
If they can put "TRIPLE Card Slot in the smaller Redmi 7, Redmi 6, etc etc,,,,why in Heavens name do they ship Note series with JUST 2 slots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember when the CEO smashed the phone on all sorts of fruits but then failed miserably in an actual durability test?
JV, 06 May 2019Where are those Flat Earthers when you need them??The photos are fake there is no stars
Well its true that the phone failed at jerryrigeverything tests although the reszult were very impresive for a 170 euros phone.
But guys please understand taht at 31KM height the atmospheric pressure and the cold of -60 degrees even a 1000 euros phone would have problems to survive.
Yeaah, the biggest BULLSH*T EVER
Cant even survive on Jerryrig's !!!!
BrokenLawShaw, 06 May 2019Explain that, flat earthers.The photos are obviously CGIs because the Earth has no curvature and the GoPros must be having fish-eye lenses.
4chan, 06 May 2019meanwhile in my country this phone is sold at 250 euros for the 3gb version. also i saw youtub... moreYeah, Xiaomi's entry into the Western markets has been disappointing. It still works out cheaper to import one yourself from a reseller
It already got tested by JerryRigEverything. That's the only durability test that matters
BrokenLawShaw, 06 May 2019Explain that, flat earthers.wow, I can't see the curve from 165 meter tall building viewing terrace, yet on the video the curve is so massive already at only 84 meters? :D :D (1:18)
