Design And Screen :

The Realme X7 Pro came to bridge the gap between the leading and the middle class, where we can call it – the killer of the leading phones – due to the advantages it offers for its price.

The multi-color version or Multi Color contains a good visual impression with differences in colors when exposed to light from different angles and the phrase DARE TO LEAP placed on the back of the phone, the phone is also available in black and white colors, and has a glass back with a polycarbonate frame, The quadruple camera shape resembles the letter L.

First, there’s a 6.55-inch flat Super AMOLED screen, with FHD + resolution and a 20: 9 aspect ratio.

The screen also offers a refresh rate of 120Hz, which is a feature you haven’t heard much about on an OLED panel in this price range. Even in a previous short period of time, I can say that Realme offers one of the best, if not the best visual experience among all of its phones.

The vibrancy of the AMOLED display is fully influenced with excellent color accuracy, deep blacks that pop across the panel, and delightful viewing angles. You’ll also get 100 percent DCI P3 color gamut coverage and 240Hz touch response rate. One detail I forgot to mention is that there is a hole on the far left side to house the selfie camera but it becomes invisible to your eye after a period of use.

Realme obtained HDR certification from a number of OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hotstar to take advantage of the full range of display capabilities in the X7 Pro. WideVine L1 certification exists for HD content as HDR is not available.

There is a plethora of customization options out there to set the screen according to your preferences. This includes standard color temperature settings, OSIE Visual Effect toggle, permanent display customization, refresh rate adjustment, and dark mode switching with eye comfort.

I was particularly impressed with the consistency of the 120Hz panel and not once did I see frame rate dropping or stuttering while scrolling, scrolling, or browsing in general. Yes, not all apps support a high refresh rate, but the apps do the job well.

The screen is incredibly bright which can achieve a peak of 1200 nits – there were no problems even when the harsh sunlight was shining directly on the screen. I’ve rarely liked the mid-range smartphone panel as I did the X7 Pro. It is fair to say that Realme didn’t skimp to provide a premium visual experience.

Camera :

Camera X7 PRO

Another area of distinction from Realme is the camera department of the X7 Pro. Basically, you get the new 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor as the primary camera with f/1.8 aperture.

Besides, there is an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP black and white sensor.

From the start, shots from the primary sensor are very detailed and crisp in daylight conditions, which is also likely due to the image processing of the new Density 1000+ processor. Aside from that, the dynamic range is adequate enough to pull in detail in extremely bright areas of the shot while exposure is handled well across all scenarios. The colors are mixed, to some extent besides being oversaturated, but in most cases, the subtlety is preserved. Shutter lag is negligible and PDAF works very well.

The camera user interface makes it easy to switch between standard pixel shots and high-resolution 64MP mode. The latter actually produces more detail allowing you to crop even more in a shot, but the colors and exposure remain pretty much the same. Sony’s large sensor size gives a very natural depth of field while taking photos, which often negates the need for portrait mode. The macro lens is available for close-up shots but only up to 4cm. Although I wasn’t a fan of macro sensors in general, the Realme app doesn’t leave a bad taste. Expectations have to be verified with a 2MP lens, but I was happy with the color accuracy and fast focusing speeds.

You also get an ultra-wide sensor with a decent field of view of 119 degrees, I like how the color temperatures of the primary sensor are replicated so well on the ultra-wide sensor. Understandably, the shots don’t have a lot of detail and focus is smoother, but overall, I was satisfied with the photos. However, when the lighting is dim, the sensor loses a lot of its capabilities which is typical given that it has a small f / 2.25 aperture.

Speaking of low-light photography, the prime lens does a great job even without the aid of dedicated Nightscape 4.0. The viewfinder shows a decently exposed frame and with some help from near street lighting combined with post-processing you can get a good picture. Details, highlights, and focus are impressive while the colors are pretty much touch-and-go.

The dedicated Nightscape 4.0 Night Mode actually overexposes the footage and does not reduce noise. This is something that I hope will resolve in future software updates. You can get some funky night filters like Cyberpunk, Flamingo, and Modern Gold to give your low-light shots a special feel.

The last of the four sensors is the 2MP black and white lens that does more for stuffing the camera array rather than having a useful function. It adds a monochromatic look to portraits and portraits.

Night Mode on the Realme X7 Pro camera

On the front, there is a 32MP selfie camera that has been a standard problem with a lot of phones over the past two months.

I liked the ability of the camera to keep facial details intact in shots even though you only have the AI ​​Beautify mode but it softens the complexion greatly. Forward Portrait has a nice soft blur background but it gets stuck during edge detection sometimes. NightScape is average and you’ll get more detail with the regular screen flash.

In terms of video recording, the phone can record 4K, 1080p and 720p videos at 60 frames per second from the rear camera. Super slow motion can reach 240fps but at 720p resolution, while 1080p can reach 120fps. The way I see it, if Nightscape 4.0 could be improved via an update, the X7 Pro would have one of the best optics in its class.

Performance And OS :

Realme comes with MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, 7nm, supports 5G,

Realme X7 Pro performed very well, with no real lags or interruptions. Using the Realme X7 Pro was a similar experience to OnePlus 8 Pro across everyday applications, with the only difference being the faster and faster animation on OxygenOS that gives a “faster” impression. If you are a regular consumer with little regard for benchmarks, Realme X7 Pro will serve you well.

AnTuTu score for the phone is 515025 points, a really impressive score and located right under the Snapdragon 865 processor Mi 10T Pro which is 567 321 points, it is clear during use that the Dimensity 1000+ packages have the same power of task as the flagship chipset.

There is no gap between heavy app switching and multiple tabs can stay open on Chrome without any problems.

While browsing a video on YouTube at the same time as I’m texting on WhatsApp. The 8GB RAM helps in this regard, along with the quad-core Cortex A77 chipset CPUs make any labor-intensive task easy.

You can run high-end games like Call of Duty: Mobile at the highest settings without a problem. There are additional features that add to the overall user experience of Realme X7 Pro. Aspects like the in-screen fingerprint scanner which works excellently and is irreproachable and also has a larger surface area than previous Realme phones.

You also have Dolby Atmos support on the stereo speakers for an immersive audio experience. The phone is certified for High-Resolution Audio if you have high-quality headphones. The phone has 5G + 5G Dual-SIM Dual Standby with 360-degree antenna support along the frame of the phone, the device has Wi-Fi 6 support if you have a compatible router with it.

In terms of the operating system, there is a disappointment with this thing, because the phone is running Android 10 with the first operation out of the box, while the competition has moved to the next number, we mean here Android 11, I am not a particular fan of Realme’s icon packs, this is not You have tons of customization options available for the Home and Lock screen.

The settings menu has become more precise making it easy to select the various options available. There are also several unique features like three-finger swipe to enable split screen display, one-click app cloning, smart sidebar, and more …

Battery :

The battery of Realme X7 Pro is 4,500 mAh, divided into two parts to facilitate fast charging by SuperDart, which has a capacity of 65 watts. This is not the first time that we have seen a fast charging from Realme, but you will be surprised by this amount of speed, the phone is fully charged From 0 to 100% in 35 minutes.

Also, charging 5 minutes of charging will provide you with video playback for a full hour, and the battery will not last. The battery will not last with you for more than a day in 120Hz screen update mode, but the phone contains some tricks to save energy, such as sleep mode, ultra power saving mode, … it can be enabled from settings.

Realme has also implemented various measures to protect the battery from overheating or any damage that occurs when it is supplied with a large amount of wattage,

In moderate use, at 60Hz, you are waiting for a day and a half usage scenario, the battery test, which includes video repeat, showed 23 hours and is in the very acceptable range, especially with fast charging.

In Short :

Realme X7 Pro is a device that provides perfection in its class. It is in a modern design, is rugged, backed by a good battery, takes great pictures, and has a leading screen in its class.
It might have come with an Android 11 version out of the box but that’s pretty much all you can say against the phone.
As for its price, it would be difficult to find a better phone. The phone has an excellent hardware package, including a 120Hz Super AMOLED display, a 64MP Sony IMX686 camera, not to mention 65W fast charging.

  • Positives :

  1. Super AMOLED display with 120 Hz refresh
  2. Daylight photography is perfect
  3. The performance is excellent
  4. Fast charging 65 watts
  • Negatives :

  1. The camera’s night mode needs some improvement
