DESIGN AND DISPLAY

The Realme 7 Pro comes with the same mirror-split design on its back as we have seen in the Realme 7, but it’s a lot slimmer and lighter, even compared to the Realme 6 Pro. This feature makes it more comfortable to hold and use. The frame and back panel are made of plastic, even it is plastic the quality is very good and the phone feels sturdy. The matte finish means it doesn’t pick up fingerprints easily. Realme offers two colors Mirror Blue and Mirror White.

The buttons are well placed around the phone. At the bottom of the device, you get the standard headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and speaker. The big feature to note on the Realme 7 Pro is the display. It’s smaller as compared to the 6 Pro at 6.4 inches, but it’s a Super AMOLED panel with a Full-HD+ resolution. Realme also mentions the use of Corning Gorilla Glass but doesn’t specify the version. The display is bright, colors are rich, all thanks goes to the type of panel, You can get an always-on display mode, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The latter worked well, and face recognition was quick.

Sadly the phone lacks a high refresh rate. The Realme 7 Pro comes with a 60Hz display, which is a little disappointing. I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker, but if you compare it with its predecessor which had a 90Hz display and so does its lower-priced sibling, the Realme 7, it feels a little incomplete. You won’t get any HDR10 certification, which is a big bummer.

PERFORMANCE

The Realme 7 Pro performed well thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC as the 6 Pro. It’s still a good chip; it’s power-efficient and doesn’t heat up even when stressed. Realme offers two variants. The starting variant of the phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and is priced at Rs. 19,999, while the top-end variant has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which is priced at. 21,999. The RAM and storage of Realme 7 Pro are LPDDR4X and UFS 2.1. Realme claims that it is the first smartphone that passed TUV Rheinland’s Smartphone Reliability Verification tests.

Realme UI ran pretty smoothly. The phone never disappointed me, whether I was launching an app, switching between multiple apps, or playing a heavy game. The high refresh rate is missing here.
The Super AMOLED display is great for watching videos, and this experience was improved by the stereo speakers. The stereo effect is good, as the earpiece gets almost as loud as the bottom-firing speaker, and Dolby Atmos helps boost the volume and audio. Games ran pretty well on the device without any lag.

Realme 7 Pro Battery Life

Realme offers a 4,500mAh battery in its latest Realme 7 Pro, which on average easily lasted for more than one day. It shows promising results in the HD video loop test with the phone lasting a little over 22 hours. Charging is very fast. It takes barely any time to fully charge it too, thanks to the 65W fast supercharging adapter. The phone goes up to 87 percent in half an hour and took only 10 minutes or so to reach 100 percent. Really it is very quick.

FINAL WORDS OF REALME 7 PRO REVIEW

After all the tests I think Realme has done a fairly good job in making the 7 Pro. It comes with some meaningful upgrades to the Realme 6 Pro in the form of an AMOLED screen, stereo speakers, and 65 watts faster charging. The primary rear camera has improved, thanks to the new sensor, but overall, I think all the cameras could still do better in low light. Don’t know ditching the ultra-wide-angle selfie camera was the best move, as unlike a depth camera,

Looking at the competitors in this segment, the Realme 7 Pro is not a clear-cut winner. It’s hard to ignore the good value offered by the Motorola One Fusion+, which has a pop-up selfie camera, a slightly faster SoC, and an HDR10-certified display. Poco is also gearing up to launch the Poco X3, and Samsung will soon launch the Galaxy M51₹ 22,499, both of which should fall in the Realme 7 Pro’s price category and make things a lot more interesting.
