Anyone got a Xiaomi smartphone?

I'm looking at either the Redmi 7a (c£78) or Redmi 7 (£124). Are either of these any good performance wise for running 4/5 chrome browser tabs simultaneously?

even my 3 year old huawei can handle multiple chrome tabs just make sure your storage space is more then 16GB cos it's literally tiny.

Anyone on TMS actually own a Xiaomi Redmi 7 or 7A ?
I don’t but just had a look online about it and that’s a hell of a good price for the spec of it!!

They must time these things (Death of a Salesman ;)), I have a Sony Xperia Z3 too, it stopped working about 2 months ago (broken mini USB port - can no longer charge the battery)!

I'm not sure yet. I use a Kardiamobile to monitor atrial fibrillation and I need a phone which is compatible with it. I don't want to rush into buying a 'cheap' machine then have to replace it in 1-2 years' time!

Hello. I'm still here lurking around :)
Hello.
I know I have been gone for a while and many of you will be wondering why I've been so quiet.

Some of you are aware, due to circumstances of what has been going on, but now it's time to let everyone know.

Back at the end of September I was diagnosed with metaplastic breast cancer. I've had such a whirlwind that I haven't really been able to take it all in. I was told I would need surgery, then Chemo and the
74 days till Christmas!
