Yes, you read the title correctly, you can have a phone that is quite good for the price tag of 100$! But what is this sorcery?!
Xiaomi, a Chinese mobile phone company, is trying to get a bigger chunk of the cellphone buying pie as offering a vast inventory of product that will satisfy every phone user.
Their freshly new phone is the Redmi 7. The design has a lot of resemblance with the Redmi Note 7 which is a bit pricier than this one but still deliver an awesome value for your bucks.
Can a good phone really be only 100$?
Here is the specs of the phone, if you want to compare.
Display Size: 6.26 inches
Resolution: 720 x 1520 pixels
OS: Android 9
Chipset: Qualcomm SDM632 Snapdragon 632
SIM: Dual SIM
Internal memory: 64GB, 4GB RAM, 32GB, 3GB RAM or 16GB, 2GB RAM
Card slot: microSD, up to 512GB
Front camera: 12MP
Selfi camera: 8MP, HDR
The phone is actually sold in three different formats of space and memory and the price change for each. The cheapest will be sold for 699 Yuans in China, which is a bit more than 100$ USD. The best version will be sold at a price tag of 999 Yuans, which is roughly 150$ USD.
If you compare this device with another cellphone that is getting the same chipset and roughly the same specs, such as the Moto G 7 Play, the 32GB and 2GB RAM is sold at 200$ USD and the Asus Zenfone Max M2 which is sold over 200$ USD for the 64GB and 4GB RAM.
Quality on a budget
At this price, you will obviously not be getting a device like the new Google Pixel 3, which cost 799$ USD for the 64GB and 4GB RAM, but you will get a mid-range phone. And for a lot of people, this is everything you will ever need. Browse your favorite apps, take selfies, send text messages and, yes, make phone calls.
Although the phone is currently not available in Canada, we hope that it will be sold to North Americans soon!
There is actually no better mid-range phone at this price so you will absolutely need to buy this if you’re in need of a new mobile phone.
You’re in need of a somewhat better phone? You might want to check his big brother, the Redmi Note 7, which was launched in January!
