When it comes to comparing Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy J7, there seems to be no contest considering that Samsung is well ahead of the game. It has also dominated the smartphone market for some time now.

But if you look at the specs, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 actually has an edge over the Samsung Galaxy J7.


It has a faster CPU that offers smartphone users a smoother experience. With a 2GB RAM over Samsung’s 1.5 GB, it also has better capabilities of running multiple applications at the same time. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 also has a better screen resolution at 1080 x 1920px compared to Samsung Galaxy J7’s 720 x 128px. Moreover, it has a better camera resolution and a bigger storage capacity at 32GB on-board storage.

As if these aren’t enough, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 also beats Samsung in terms of battery life. In a battery testing performed by PhoneArena, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 toppled the toughest competition by a couple of hours. During the test, the mobile phone screen was kept on all the time, and the display was set at a brightness of 200 nits.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 lasted for 12 hours and 36 minutes. With a 4,000mAh battery, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
