Redmi Note 7 is the first smartphone of the recently separated ‘Redmi’ subbrand of the Chinese giant Xiaomi. Apart from the magnificent dual rear camera, premium color gradient metal design, and promising performance, there’s another aspect which adds to its stupendously low budget. It is the ‘durability’ of the smartphone. To check the robustness of this underdog, let’s see whether its screen survives a drill test or not.
Redmi Note 7 Drill Test – Incredible Results
A drilling test was conducted on the screen because the glass display is the most fragile part of the phone.
As seen in the video, the Redmi Note 7 survived the drill test. More interestingly, there’s no crack, not even a scratch on the screen after drilling. The credit here goes to the Gorilla Glas Protection 5 coating on the screen. Lei Jun, founder/CEO of Xiaomi Technology said :
The fifth-generation Gorilla Glass used by Redmi Note 7 is a product that many manufacturers are not allowed to use for a two to three thousand yuan smartphone.
Moreover, this is the first time, that Xiaomi has used the latest Gorilla Glass Protection in its flagship. Most of their phones don’t have such coating (or maybe they never mentioned), but recently, they have started featuring it in the recent launches.
