So..hi, I'm owning Xiaomi Redmi 7A 2 years now and.. this phone it's getting worse and worse, I'm editor of videos and I'm using my phone for it..and it's really laggy..this phone doesn't turn on some games because of GB RAM..for this price is this phone horrible.. I'm sorry, but.. that's my opinion, i wish i had money for better phone so.. that's why I'm using this phone now.
I bought it in April 2020 and it's a good phone for the price of 110 euros that I've paid. Has a good battery capacity and life, the processor is octa-core, fast for normal usage, the RAM is only adequate at 2GB, has a good set of hardware features, Android es upgraded to 10 and MIUI, now upgraded to version 12.5 has a lot of useful functions.
Have had this phone since Jan 2020. It is an absolute battery beast with the huge battery, small screen, and slower processor. If I use battery saver mode and put it on airplane mode, it can standby for ~20 days. I find the speed to be fine and the MIUI to be better than stock android. The only bad thing about this phone is the camera is pretty horrible, it has lots of bloatware, and it doesn't work on verizon. Otherwise, it's a very solid phone for the price.
By using XiaomiADBFastbootTools on my laptop I have removed all the bloatwares.
This phone is good for its price. Captures good photos with Gcam (processing is slow with HDR+). Good phone for its price. I am using it since 2 years.
2GB Ram Is not sufficient... It has BloatWare that kills the Phone after a year or so...! Had to sell it for 2K...!
Had to update to miui 12 because like so many times before the phone would just restart suddenly when it is not updated. After updating yes the battery drains so damn fast like i could watch youtube for a whole day straight but now i can only do it for less than half day before it requires charging
For this price you can get much better. The cameras suck, same with the storage and RAM. The battery is ok for the price though. I understand you can't expect much from a 100 dollar phone, but like I said, you can get better phones for this price. I bought it and I regret it.
However, the size is small and there is a headphone jack and FM radio, so it's a good phone for people that just want to use it for facebook or whatsapp and for capturing important moments once in a while.
Also, it's cool to see that it recieved MIUI 12
i'm not a geek, but i had not major problem with it
the idea of two spaces in one phone is awesome, only that it's not well protected at all, you can literally see the code to change spaces
besides, not the very bets but it does the job rather well and is reliable

Just keep it updated through Google Play Store.. that will be more than enough.
Why my Google app is not working in my phone how can I use my account if the application is not working... On my phone

Stop being an android shill, this phone is already discontinued.
I own both a Redmi 7 and a Redmi 7A (both global versions). The smaller, less powerful Redmi 7A has a prompt to update to MIUI 12, but the bigger, more powerful Redmi 7 is forever stuck in MIUI 11.
Really tought that only the chinese versions of both phones would receive MIUI 12 + Android 10, since these have more RAM and more attention from Xiaomi.

A small phone for basic use with 64-bit on, is, amongst other things, what i'm looking for my next phone. This one has been a good candidate so far.
