The mid-range of Xiaomi is full of devices with good features at a really affordable price. Among them are the Xiaomi Redmi 7, Note 7 and Note 6 Pro, three terminals that are available to buy in Spain through the official Xiaomi store and that differ in some characteristics. The simplest of the three is the Redmi 7, a device with double 12 + 2 megapixel sensor, Snapdragon 632 processor and 2 or 3 GB of RAM.
This would be followed by Redmi Note 6 Pro, which already has four cameras (two for selfies and two in the main one), better performance thanks to a Snapdragon 636 SoC and up to 4 GB of RAM. Of the three, the Redmi Note 7 is the one that stands out, although we can say that it is very close to the Note 6 Pro. This model has a photographic section with a 48 + 5 megapixel sensor, Snapdragon 660 processor and up to 4 GB of RAM. For the rest, they are practically on par, but if you want to know everything about them and know which one is better for you when buying, do not stop reading. Then we leave you all the details.

Design and screen
Although it is true that all three follow the same design line, the Xiaomi Redmi 7 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 are the ones that most resemble aesthetically. In fact, they are almost identical when placed next to each other. Both have a front protagonist, with a water drop shaped notch, and a backside where there is the presence of a fingerprint reader right in the center. The double chamber is in the upper left located in an upright position. Both models wear a glass chassis, with a fairly noticeable shine on the back. A very elegant detail, but that will leave us the back full of footprints if we are not cleaning it continuously with a chamois.
For its part, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro includes a notch or notch, although in its case not in the form of a water drop. This is something more prominent, which gives the panel a not-so-relevant role. In any case, we are talking about an infinite screen, of large dimensions, as we will see below, with which we will not have any problem when viewing content when browsing or using Netflix. For this mobile Xiaomi has used aluminum. Its rear part looks very similar to that of its brothers, with the fingerprint reader in the center and the double camera in the upper left in an upright position.
Regarding the size of the screens, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Redmi 7 arrive with a 6.26 inch. Of course, with Full HD + resolution (2,246 x 1,080 pixels) in the case of the first and HD + (1,440 x 720 pixels) in the second. Its ratio is 19: 9. The Redmi panel Note 7 is slightly higher: 6.3 inches with Full HD + resolution (2,340 x 1,080 pixels), 19.5: 9 format and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection against drops or bumps.
Processor and memory
The three mobiles are prepared to work with current applications, not too heavy, and work with several processes at once, but without going over. Let's not forget that they fall within the mid-range. Of them, the Redmi 7 is the simplest. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, accompanied by 2 or 3 GB of RAM and a storage of 16, 32 or 64 GB. This is followed by Note 6 Pro with a Snapdragon 636, 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal space.
If you are looking for more power, then the Redmi Note 7 is the device you are looking for. This includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and a storage of 32, 64 or 128 GB. In any case, any of them can be expanded through microSD type cards.
If you are not yet decided on which one to choose, you may leave doubts now, by reading this section. If your idea is to have a mid-range model with a photographic section that does not disappoint you, then opt for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. This terminal has a double sensor formed by a first 48 megapixel lens with 1.8 focal aperture, accompanied by a more modest 5 megapixel, in charge of bokeh photos.
It should be noted that the captures will not be made by default to such a large size. It will be the user himself who will have to activate the 48 megapixel option by clicking on the settings menu and an icon that appears at the top. Also, in this mode we will not be able to use the zoom, although it will not take much, since we can trim the part of the image we want without losing much quality thanks to the wide resolution. During our tests we check that the camera quality is very decent, with realistic and natural details, which surprise to be an economic mobile.
The photographic section of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is not bad either. The device includes a double main sensor of 12 +5 megapixels with aperture f / 1.9 and f / 2.2, respectively, as well as another double sensor for selfies in its front. This has a resolution of 20 + 2 megapixels with aperture f / 2.0 and f / 2.2. For its part, the Xiaomi Redmi 7 also arrives with a double sensor in the rear (12 + 2 megapixels), although a single lens hidden under its notch, which in this case is 8 megapixels and focal aperture f / 2.0.
Battery and connections
These three Xiaomi models are equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery, perfect for intensive use of the device without being pulled at the first exchange. We can say that making normal use (navigation, social network update, check email, write WhatsApp, take some photos …) we will have for a couple of days without problems. In addition, all three include fast charging system, which will allow us to load them in more than half in just a few minutes. This always comes in handy for when we are in a hurry or traveling.
With regard to connections, the three Xiaomi offer a wide range of options: WiFi, LTE, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type C and fingerprint reader to make payments or reinforce security when logging in.
