Almost all Xiaomi phones are feature rich and offer the best value for money. The recently launched Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro are also the same. As I had mentioned in the review of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, almost everything about the phone is great. It offers a premium design, great performance, clicks astounding pictures with its cameras, and decent battery life. One of the few areas I felt the Redmi Note 7 Pro could have been better is the software. The Redmi Note 7 Pro runs Android 9 Pie based on MIUI 10.
Xiaomi has often been criticized about its latest custom UI aka MIUI 10. The MIUI 10 comes with several useful and smart features, but then there are some annoying features too. For example, too much bloatware and innumerable ads in almost all apps. Most Xiaomi phone (running on MIUI 10) user complains about only one thing: the presence of ads almost everywhere. However, the presence of ads is also quite understandable considering Xiaomi phones are aggressively priced and the ads help the Chinese smartphone manufacturer compensate for the cost of the hardware.
