Realme X7 Review | A Competitively Priced Smartphone Or A Claptrap

The Realme X7 arrangement originally made its introduction right off the bat in December, getting two new 5G devices the mid-range. While the Realme X7 Pro centered on the top notch mid-range fragment, the vanilla X7 was intended for more budget-friendly consumer base. The Realme X7 shows up with every one of the extravagant accessories of a financial plan 5G phone, including an adaptable camera arrangement, a solid chipset, a lively display, and a fair battery joined by super-quick charging. Along these lines, with no further deferrals, we should take an inside and out walk-through of the Realme X7.

Attractive Design And Build

As far as the design is concerned, the Realme X7 is moderately minimal, light (weighing 176g), and thin (estimating 8.1mm). One justification the light and minimized form is the phone's polycarbonate edge and body, albeit the screen is ensured by a vague glass. Realme additionally asserts that the phone can oppose light sprinkles of water. The vanilla Realme X7 is accessible in a Nebula and Space Silver completion, with the previous highlighting the ‘Dare To Leap’ marking extended across the back.

Nonetheless, the silver completion draws an ideal harmony among style and unpretentiously. Thinking about its weight, size, and thickness, the Realme X7 is very agreeable to grasp, in spite of the fact that it comes at the expense of that exceptional allure. One drawback here was that the back surface pulled in such a large number of fingerprints, in spite of the fact that there's a straightforward silicone cover in the case that may help tackle the issue.

Not at all like the Realme X 7 Pro, have the camera focal points here distended out of the module. The catches on the gadget are quite simple to get to, while the USB-C to 3.5mm connector makes up for the absence of an earphone jack. The smartphone has a solitary speaker that conveys very great sound quality, while the-Res Audio affirmation upgrades the listening experience with a couple of earphones.


For the screen, the Realme X7 selects a 6.4-inch FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels) Super AMOLED panel. There's no extravagant high refresh rate here, however the device has a touch inspecting pace of 180Hz. The pinnacle splendor of 600 nits misses the mark regarding the thousand imprints, yet that isn't unexpected at this cost.

The DC Dimming can lessen flashing to ease eye strain, while the in-show finger impression scanner is quick and responsive. This may not be the best AMOLED board around, however it is hopefully acceptable in the sub-20K fragment, and it is without a doubt better compared to the best LCDs utilized in the portion.

Ah-mazing Performance

With regards to execution, the Realme X7 utilizes a MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC, a section level 7nm 5G chip. The chip is matched with the Mali-G57 GPU and 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage – the performance is great during data transfers. In our Geekbench 5 test, which incidentally turns out to be CPU-situated, the MediaTek Dimensity 800U chip apparently was a little more slow than the Snapdragon 750G portable stages.

Saying this doesn't imply that that this is a terrible chip as it handles most assignments absent a lot of exertion, despite the fact that it has a few constraints while gaming and you will not have the option to go all out in additional requesting titles. Nonetheless, it is significant that it can stay up with, and as a rule dominates, any cell phone in the section, while offering 5G availability.


The Realme X7 chooses a triple-camera arrangement, with a 64 MP, f/1.8 sensor in charge. In any case, Realme isn't promoting a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor here and is content with the Samsung ISOCELL GW2 sensor. The principle sensor is matched with a 8 MP ultra-wide shooter and a 2 MP full scale camera. On the front, the opening punch camera pattern houses a 16 MP selfie shooter with a f/2.5 aperture.

The essential camera handles dynamic reach and openness, while photographs look clear with a huge load of detail. Moreover, representation shots additionally fall off looking very great. Notwithstanding, the entirety of this is dependent upon the lighting in the scene. We additionally saw a touch of over-honing and loss of detail of removed articles. In low light, there's a genuinely pleasant evening mode. With adequate surrounding light, night mode works really hard of catching subtlety with less clamor, in spite of the fact that photographs can get foggy without a consistent hand. Generally speaking, Nightscape mode can be a hit or a miss, contingent upon how consistent your hand and items in the edge are.

The Realme X7 likewise has an ultra-wide camera that siphons out great outcomes in the correct light, despite the fact that you'll see a decent measure of bending. Night mode is accessible on the ultra-wide camera too; however the outcomes were quite terrible. The large scale camera can be a hit or a miss, as a rule it was a miss, battling to catch anything beneficial in something besides splendid open air light.

The primary camera on the Realme X7 can record 4K video at 30fps with genuinely great outcomes in the correct light. You can possibly switch among fundamental and ultra-wide cameras when shooting in 1080p goal. Nonetheless, changing to 1080p inside or in helpless light comes at the expense of detail with obviously more commotion. Generally, video quality is comparable to most cell phones at this cost. Selfies on the 16 MP sensors additionally look great in sunshine. There is some forceful beautification, yet you do prepare web-based media results.

Battery – A One-Day Phone

Battery limit is somewhat lower on the Realme X7 when contrasted with its 'Expert' kin. Notwithstanding, 4,310 mAh was all that anyone could need to get past an entire day, particularly when you consider the display maximizes at 60Hz. Additionally, assuming you're not dazzled with the battery limit, look no farther than the 50W charging block remembered for the container. It took me under 30 minutes to get a 50 percent charge while going from 0 to 100% requires about 60 minutes. Entire day battery existence with super-quick energizing to back it is really cool at this cost.

Software – As Good As It Gets

The Realme X7 runs Android 10 with the Realme UI skin on top. While Realme’s custom skin is suggestive of stock, there's a lot of bloatware to advise you that you're not running stock Android. All things considered, a great deal of it tends to be uninstalled, yet irritating message pop-ups should be handicapped in the settings. Aside from that, there are some clever customizations like discretionary route motions, a Smart Sidebar for alternate ways to applications and devices, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. Generally, Realme UI has a moderate vibe and makes a respectable showing of imitating stock Android.

Final Verdict – Should You Buy This Or Not?

At a beginning cost of Rs 19,999, the Realme X7 is a brilliant cell phone. There is a ton on proposal here, with a decent OLED board, a skilled mid-range chipset, a decent camera in light, throughout the day battery life, super-quick charging, and in particular, 5G. It can surely clash with any cell phone in the sub-20K portion and is significantly better compared to a great deal of them.

Nonetheless, Realme's secret weapon here is 5G. In the event that you remove the MediaTek Dimensity chipset, the Realme X7 is any not the same as the Realme 7 Pro. Realme's large play is moderate 5G, an organization that isn't accessible in India yet. Take, for instance, the Mi 10i, whose huge play is 108 MP camera just as 5G, the previous of which is really available. What we're attempting to get at here is that the Realme X7 is where 5G is promptly accessible is a phenomenal smartphone, however in India, it is simply one more great sub-20K cell phone, something that isn't rare.
