Wait till 15th August, you’ll find a better deal biggrin

1-2 months back, Redmi 6 Pro was on sale for Rs.7999
With bank discount, it was around Rs.7199 biggrin
That was a much better deal than these budget devices.

3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and Snapdragon 625
Full HD+ Display biggrin

If you don’t find any deal then go with Redmi 7A.
Don’t forget to buy Flipkart Complete Mobile Protection for just Rs.199 biggrin

I have watched most of the reviews available on Youtube.
Build quality looks good but 16:9 and 3000 mAh battery are few cons.

Well, I was saying if a better deal comes around 7k, better grab that one instead of buying a budget phone.

this doesn’t prove anything you have to see this following
interference
long term
durability
trust
and so called #boycott China thing
for 100 RS product we easily say that this is from China blah blah blah but that will remain same if you are buying Chinese thing I hope you got my point

Crap comparison. SD 636 is in a completely different league when it comes to CPU perf. nearly 2x in single-threaded thanks to the 2 big cores (A73) while all the others only have little cores (A53) GPU should be noticeably faster as well. Then the intangibles like LTE CA, higher LTE CAT., ISP, HVX etc. SD 625 is marginally ahead of SD 439.
Edit: Qualcomm’s naming policy is very consistent and clear-cut.

i agree but even an advanced processor with less ram outperforms an outdated processor with more ram.
fyi all mobiles even asus is manufactured in china only.

I have 2 Redmi mobiles that are still going strong after ~3 years. To be fair I had ditched MIUI ASAP. No HW issues. Friend has one that’s just shy of 4 years and on MIUI even. Is it a case of one bad experience?
