To celebrate my 12 minute retirement extension trip and the money I saved not having moving to some god forsaken spot on the globe I bought me a new phone.  Redmi Note 7.  Love it.  Fast, great big display, 128G memory and dual sim, 4000 mAh battery, quick charging, Snapdragon 660.  I was using two phones and forwarding the calls and messages from one to the mobile that I carry but now with the dual sims don't have to do that.  Says it has a 48 mp camera but I find that hard to believe but it is a beautiful shade of iridescent blue.  I keep it in the middle of the house and I can hear it all over.  Bluetooth 5.0 and the range is no better than the 4. which I had kinda figured.  So I still have to slip it in my pocket when I walk the dog.  I was thinking about a Galaxy S10+ but it's 4 times the price.  So if I drop this one I'm not gonna cry.

The RN-7 is really a great phone for the money. The rear camera of the RN-7 is essentially a 12 mp that is somehow interpolated into into what they claim is effectively 48 mp.

Check out "G-Cam"  It's a sideload that significantly improves the standard camera in certain situations, especially low light.

Tons of RN-7 vids on YT.

Noticed AIS was selling the RN-7 4/64 for B4999. Great price but the deal probably requires one year AIS contract.

You got yourself a really good phone. We have the 5 and the 7. I can't imagine what people are getting from their top end phones, but I don't believe they are having a 4 times better experience. And it's nice to get a new one every 2 years or so. At this price it is painless.

Display not amoled and no NFC but looks fine to me.  I used my Samsung Note 4 seems like forever.  Nothing wrong with it just got bored.

I have the same experience , but with a Note 6 Pro , in August last year my Galaxy Note 5 died so I bought the 6 at about AUD$350 as a temporary measure , however nearly 1 year on and I'm still using it because it does all I want at a third of the price.

I guess it's so cheap because the Chinese want to take over the market in India and I almost bought a Redmi Note 7 pro from India but changed my mind as I don't know if it is supported in Thailand.

Call 1175 and ask.  They have so many plans I would hesitate to comment.

I just set up my remote controls on the Redmi Note 7.  The TV and sound bar use wifi but the True-vision satellite box uses IR.  I use "Sure" remote app and since the Redmi Note 7 has IR this is no problem.

The case that came with the phone does not protect the back camera lens so I bought one at Lazada.  Good protection but the side buttons are made a bit stiff.  I figured out how to tap on the lock screen twice to open it and the phone recognizes my face and opens in a second - no danger as the banking apps and anything I want secure are only accessible with my fingerprint.  I can turn it off by a long press and when placed in a pocket automatically goes to lock screen.  It is really has been a good buy.

Bluetooth 5 has much better range than 4 but both items need to have it, ie Bluetooth 5 on phone and headphones.

I have bluetooth 5 on my phone and my Jabra elite 65t and my Bluedio headphones.  No better range that Blue tooth 4.2.  If you had tried it you would know.
