Although Realme 6 and Realme 7 did not have much major changes, but Realme 7 Pro does bring some major changes compared to its previous model Realme 6 Pro, of which direct noticeable changes are Amoled display, stereo speakers and 65 W Fast charging support.
After reviewing Realme 7, now is the time to test Realme 7 Pro, the premium model of this new series. It is an upgrade to Realme 6 Pro and is very similar to Realme 7, but obviously with some upgrades. Although Realme 6 and Realme 7 did not have much major changes, but Realme 7 Pro does bring some major changes compared to its previous model Realme 6 Pro, of which direct noticeable changes are AMOLED display, stereo speakers and 65W Fast charging support.
The price of Realme 7 Pro in India starts at Rs 19,999, which is much higher than the launch price of 6 Pro. The big rivals of the new phones currently include Redmi Note 9 Pro Max (review) and Poco X2 (review) and to some extent, Redmi K20 (review) and Oppo F17 Pro can also compete with it. Now it’s time to find out if the new Realme 7 Pro is worth buying.
Realme 7 Pro: design and display
The Realme 7 Pro gets the same mirror-split design as the Realme 7, but is much thinner (8.7mm) and lighter (182g) than the Realme 6 Pro. Because of this you will have a good grip on the phone and it is much more comfortable to use. The frame and back panel are still made of plastic, but the quality is very good and the phone feels strong. The matte finish in the back means that it does not easily catch fingerprints and we like the Mirror Blue unit. The phone is also available in white color.
The placement of the buttons is good, and at the bottom you get a headphone jack, USB Type-C port and speakers. Realme 7 Pro with 6.4-inch screen size is smaller than the 6 Pro in terms of display, but it is accompanied by a Super AMOLED panel with full-HD + resolution. Reality has also claimed the use of Gorilla Glass in the series, although in which version, there is no explanation about it. The display is bright, colors are good, all the credit goes to the panel.
Sadly, this phone leaves a big feature present in Realme 6 Pro, which is a high refresh rate screen. The Realme 7 Pro offers a standard refresh rate of 60Hz, which is a bit disappointing. We can’t even call it a deal breaker, but given that the 90Hz display panel is available in its previous model and in the cheaper model Realme 7 of the same series, it is disappointing. Apart from this, the display does not come with HDR10 certification, which once again disappoints a bit, given that this feature is available in the cheap phone Motorola One Fusion + (Review).।
Realme 7 Pro: performance and features
Realme 7 Pro performed well in our time together and I was not surprised, as it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset similar to the 6 Pro. It is still a good chip. It performs its job well and does not get too hot even if it is over stressed. The base variant of Reality 7 Pro offers 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and is priced at 19,999, while the higher priced variants have 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, which will put a load of Rs 21,999 on your pocket.
The Realme UI ran very smoothly on this top-end variant. Launching apps, switching between multiple apps or playing a heavy game, the phone was able to withstand every task comfortably. There was a bit of high refresh rate, but this may be because we have recently tested many phones with 90Hz screen.
The Super Amoled display was great for watching videos and this experience was enhanced by stereo speakers. The stereo effect is good and Dolby Atmos helps boost volume and audio fidelity. The games also did very well.
