Both have Android 9 Pie, but My A2 chas Android One, which gives us a practically pure Android experience and guarantees us system updates for 2 years (in fact, updated to Android 9 Pie from Android 8 Oreo) and 3 years of security patch update. For its part, the Redmi Note 7 has the cape MIUI 10 from Xiaomi. much more intrusive and with more bootloader. Therefore, we are facing a differentiating element when choosing one or the other.

So, by way of conclusion, we could say that the Redmi Note 7 is superior to the Xiaomi Mi A2, since for just 20 euros more, we get a device with a more optimized screen size, much better battery and better camera.
