In terms of design, Realme 7 PRO is an upgrade especially with that camera module everyone’s going with this rectangular camera module and I dig it I do like the rectangular camera module.
Now apart from that the in-hand feel of Realme 7 PRO is very good it’s comfortable lightweight and very easy to use the phone. it does not feel big in the hand and the form factor is just perfect so it’s not too big and not too small.
When it comes to the materials it comes with a plastic back panel and I do not mind that like all these brands can avoid glass in the budget series because glass is glass and glass breaks. one design choice that I appreciate is the headphone jack so it’s good to see that real me has not removed the headphone jack and maybe they’ll retain the headphone jack in the next version as well, at this price point the headphone jack is very important.
Now let’s move our attention towards the front side of things with that beautiful display so Realme 7 PRO comes with a full HD plus AMOLED display. here’s where Realme made the right choice instead of going with a higher refresh rate LCD panel they went with a lower refresh rate AMOLED panel. now as much as I love higher refresh 8 panels with the smooth scrolling and swiping around low refresh rate AMOLED screens make sense for most of the people out there like there will be very few people who will pick a higher refresh rate LCD over a lower refresh rate AMOLED panel.
when it comes to the actual quality of the AMOLED screen Realme 7 PRO does not disappoint great viewing angles punchy colors. it gets bright enough to use in outdoor conditions and you do get those deep blacks because of AMOLED, so if you consume a lot of media on your phone like movies on Netflix Hotstar, etc or watching Youtube videos or just scrolling through Instagram and Snapchat those things are going to be excellent because of that beautiful display.
The next point is performance Realme 7 PRO comes with a Snapdragon 720G processor along with that it has a couple of options 6 GB of Ram or 8GB of Ram and both of them come with 128GB of internal storage. now there is a dedicated MicroSD card slot so that is really good if you want to expand the storage you can do that with a MicroSD card.
Snapdragon 720g is a mid-range processor and it is really good for normal tasks so tasks like checking your email, replying to WhatsApp messages, scrolling through Instagram, scrolling through youtube, or playing light games for all these tasks the 720g is more than enough but apart from that if you’re a gamer and if you play games like PUBG then you are not going to have the best experience.
Remember, Realme 7 Pro price in Pakistan is Rs. 54,999, then yes I would say that the performance is good for PUBG as well, but for this price point, the performance for PUBG could have been better.
Now on the software side of things, Realme 7 PRO comes with Realme UI and it is not for everyone it comes with a lot of bloatware and that is a problem for a lot of people.
So, if you’re looking for a clean experience without any bloatware then that’s not what you’re going to get with Realme 7 PRO, Realme UI does have a lot of bloatware and it is far from being called a clean UI.
now bloatware aside performance-wise Realme UI is really good it’s smooth no lags whatsoever and they’ve done a pretty good job in terms of optimizing the software for this phone.
All in all, for the performance aspect I’m going to say the performance is decent enough but it’s nothing impressive for the price of rupees 54,999.
I expected a little more out of it now one of the best features of Realme 7 pro is the 65 watts fast charging it is stupid fast like crazy fast I remember one time my battery was two percent I plugged it in for half an hour and it was like 80 to 90 percent charged which is just crazy. So, 65-watt fast charging is really good at the point where it’s overkill for this phone, I don’t know if 65-watt fast charging will affect the battery health in the long run if you have any information on it then please let me know about that in the comment section down below.
The battery life on Realme 7 PRO is really good I was consistently getting somewhere around 5 and a half to 6 hours of screen on time and that is excellent I could not kill this phone in a day because I am not a heavy user but even if you are a heavy user you will easily get through a day.
All right it is time to talk about my favorite thing in any smartphone and that is them cameras so on the rear side there’s a quad-camera setup a 64-megapixel primary camera which is the Sony imx682 then there’s an ultra-wide-angle camera a 02-megapixel macro camera and a 02-megapixel depth sensor.
So, essentially there are only 02 cameras the main and ultra-wide the macro and depth sensor are just there.
But long story short Realme 7 PRO is an excellent phone, when it comes to the camera experience it is capable of shooting some really good images in daylight conditions, artificial lighting conditions, and also in low lighting conditions.
One of the best things about the Realme 7 PRO is the night mode for the ultra-wide-angle camera. Yes. it does support night mode for the ultra-wide angle camera as well and that is excellent.
So, I would say it’s a job well done by the Realme team in terms of the cameras.
We’ve come to the final point in this review and that is other things first up other things is the in-display fingerprint sensor the in-display fingerprint sensor is possible because of the AMOLED screen, and frankly, it could have been better like it’s not consistent 8 out of 10 times it works and the remaining 02 times it just does not work. I’m hoping that Realme can fix this with a software update so if someone from Realme is watching this please fix the fingerprint sensor.
It’s not the most consistent out there second point is stereo speakers the sound output could have been way better and more clear as well so the stereo speakers are just a marketing gimmick and do not fall for it the sound output from the speakers is just normal nothing impressive over here.
overall Realme 7 PRO is a solid phone and a great competitor to all,
