Realme 7 Pro: Quick Review

The realme company has presented on the market two new smartphones of its numbered line - realme 7 and 7 Pro. At the same time, the manufacturer continued the trend with unobvious and at times not immediately understandable solutions regarding device positioning. So it happened with new products.

It is worth looking at the technical characteristics of the devices, and even if you do not know their names, it will become obvious that at some stage the manufacturer decided to change something in its approach to smartphones and their filling. The nominal older model that came for the review is far from being better than the base model in everything on paper.

It seems that both smartphones have processors with a hint of games, however, in the hero of the review from the gaming spirit, perhaps, only the processor remained. During the first acquaintance with the full characteristics of the devices, there was a feeling that somewhere there was an error, a typo, but I was wrong. After a short search on the net, the answer to my dumb question was found. The fact is that realme has a habit of conducting polls in its social networks in the style of "which of these technologies would you like to see in a smartphone for XX thousand dollars, underline the necessary", and at the same time the results of the survey are communicated to decision makers. Apparently, this is how these two smartphones appeared, whose positioning is definitely different from the clear distinction between devices in the 6th generation. In this article, we will give you a quick review regarding the Realme 7 Pro.

 

Realme 7 Pro: Quick Review

 Design & Display.

  In terms of dimensions, the realme 7 Pro is slightly smaller and more compact than its nominal predecessor, the 6 Pro. In the assets of the novelty, and a lighter case (182 versus 202 grams), apparently, played a role here reduced in size case, as well as the use of plastic instead of glass on the back surface. Perhaps this move is due to the desire not to raise the cost. In my subjective opinion, glass feels more premium, even if plastic is more practical.

The material of the back is matte, while its texture catches and refracts light, beautifully reflecting it at different angles and slightly changing the color of the panel, this effect is noticeable in the photo with a smartphone. The back is visually divided into two panels with different treatment of the case, the review was given a silver color, a blue version will be on sale, both colors are calm and not flashy, the last generation looked brighter. The surface of the backrest readily collects fingerprints and external dirt, so you either had to have a lint-free cloth on hand or use the complete cover. It will also smooth out the protruding camera module, which has become thinner and rectangular compared to the 6 Pro. However, for now, it still creates a certain discomfort when entering text on a flat-lying device. The assembly is reliable, monolithic.

When it comes to water resistance, to quote my review of the realme X3 Superzoom, it uses the same approach:

“.... Still, certification according to the IPxx standard is not declared, but there is still water protection: the adhesive layer around the perimeter of the case, silicone glue-sealed connectors and foam rings that protect the gaps of the SIM card slot and the battery are responsible for this parameter ".

At the bottom, there are the usual connectors for charging and connecting headphones. As for the controls, everything is familiar: on the left - the volume control keys and the SIM tray, on the right - the power button. The fingerprint sensor has moved into the display, a solution for many may seem controversial because the side scanner has come to the liking of users. There are no complaints about the scanner, it works quickly and flawlessly, you can select an animation effect for it, as well as turn on the sound. It will not play in silent or vibration mode. The use of an optical scanner in the case of the realme 7 Pro is another way to emphasize (and maybe justify) the use of an AMOLED display.

As far as the display is concerned, as is often the case in the company's devices, a factory-made film is glued to the display, it traditionally holds firmly and can do a good job for those who are not quite careful in handling gadgets. The absence of any oleophobic coating is found under it, which does not interfere with the work with the screen, the finger glides confidently. The frames are medium in thickness, I would not call them thin.

In the presented smartphones, the manufacturer did not abandon the cutout in the screen, however, the number of front cameras was reduced to one. And this is where AMOLED also comes to the rescue: the combination of deep black and dark wallpaper allows you to better hide the notorious cutout, in comparison with IPS it looks more advantageous. We will not give up the thought of the camera under the display, Realme, just be sure.

With the resolution, everything is clear, justified and logical, FHD + is becoming an increasingly popular parameter for smartphones of different price segments. But with the refresh rate, everything is not so rosy. The display used in Realme 7 Pro does not have an increased hertz range, but there is an analog of the Always-On functionality. Looking at the two new smartphones in this regard, I thought hard about what is more important for me - a high refresh rate or Always-On with a suitable black color. Probably, for each smartphone in different ways, it all depends on its positioning. It will be interesting to read your opinion on this in the comments. And my final verdict will be formed after testing realme 7.

I liked the screen in the tested smartphone, first of all, in the context of the dark theme, here it looks definitely better than on IPS. Of course, from the screen settings, I will highlight the always-on display mode, you can select the displayed items and set the work schedule. The display style is one, the option to customize it is not yet included in the assembly, and it is unclear whether there will be. Three color modes are also available in the settings: simplified color (sRGB), rich (DCI-P3) and extended (DCI-P3 with brighter reds and greens). The AMOLED color reproduction is closer to me, probably because most of my personal smartphones had such a screen. For those whose eyes are sensitive to PWM, the DC Dimming mode is provided, it is available in the settings, item "Realme laboratory". There is also an option for smooth scrolling (compensation for the absence of 90 Hz?) And "night super standby",

The peak brightness is declared at 600 nits, which is very good for the money. It is clear that it cannot be achieved in manual mode, but in adaptive mode it is possible. There is support for HDR10 + content, when viewed on YouTube, brightness and contrast are automatically improved. Of course, not every video is shot in this format, so you need to search.

After testing the device, I personally had no complaints about the display, if you do not repeat the moment about the notch. Once again, I was convinced that AMOLED is closer to me, although at this stage IPS-screens no longer cause those complaints that before, the second smartphone was just with this technology, and there is no rejection.

Realme 7 Pro: Quick Review

  Operating System and Process.

 The phone offers extremely fast and powerful processor.  Realme 7 Pro offers a good processor for daily use. The Realme 7 Pro powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. The phone generally offers sufficient performance for daily work. It is a kind of hardware that can guarantee good, smooth, and flexible daily use. Even if you are like 720G, my advice is not to overuse it to make CoD Mobile plays with maximum graphic details. The graphics settings are very obvious due to overheating of the device.

 Regarding the GPU, TCL 10 Plus has the Adreno 618.

  In Geekbench 5, the CPU scored 509 for single-core and 1796 for multicores.

According to the operating system, Realme 7 Pro obviously comes with a manufacturer's custom Realme UI 1.0 software that is a slightly redesigned version of OPPO's interface. Everything is based on Android 10 currently updated with the patches of August 2020. The software is quite different aesthetically from Android stock, but it is not even among the most "radical" in this sense. Among the additional features, we have the programmable dark mode , the gesture to lower all the icons on the home screen at your fingertips, the ability to enable or disable the drawerof applications and navigation gestures (but not only). The power button can then act as a button for Google Assistant and you can start the two-app mode by swiping with three fingers on the screen. Also present the private space and the sidebar. A complete software that will make many users happy. In our test then we did not run into bugs or problems of any kind.

Security and Ports.

  On the security side, the Realme 7 Pro also offers an in-screen fingerprint reader. Adding fingerprints is fast. However, the first time the hit rate is slightly below average during use. In order for the fingerprint to be recognized, you need to press your finger lightly for at least 2 seconds and hold it. It may take some time to learn this. If you want, we can also use facial recognition. As we always say, although this increases practicality, it will lower the level of security. The phone also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode.

  As of ports, the device supports Bluetooth 5 and NFC. It supports VoLTE and WiFi Calling. It also has support for a 3.5mm headphone jack like the Realme 6 Pro.

 Battery and charging.

 Realme 7 Pro provides a powerful Li-Po 2250 mAh battery. It. And the phone offers fast charging.

Probably one of the most significant "tricks" of a smartphone is the 65W SuperDart fast charging. It is able to fully charge the smartphone in 34 minutes, on the lock screen you can see how the percentages run, the speed at first is amazing. In my scenario, the full charge was reached in 37 minutes, the indicator declared at the presentation was obtained when the airplane mode was turned on. A few more figures: 3 minutes of charging - 13% of the charge, 12 minutes - 50%, during the game - 43% in 30 minutes. The indicators are flagship, the same power, for example, in the recently presented OnePlus 8T.

Additional technologies provide power regulation to avoid overheating, surge protection and short circuits. In general, everything that we saw in the flagship realme X2 Pro, only in a more budgetary smartphone, good functionality. The sensations are the same as from the increased hertzovka: it seems to be an optional thing, but smartphones with slower charging begin to be perceived as something from the past generation. There is also reverse charging over the wire, not the fastest.

The looping test showed 25 hours, which corresponds to the performance of the realme 6 Pro on the same processor in 60 Hz mode and a slightly increased battery capacity. The mixed mode will give one and a half to two days of work, depending on the time the screen is on. Honestly, with such a charging speed, it's easy to forget about your previous scenarios for replenishing the battery capacity, let alone an energy-saving mode. Yes, it will definitely come in handy if you have to be away from the outlet, in normal scenarios SuperDart fast charging is very helpful. It is worth noting that the power supply is rather big, for the sake of such speed, you can free up space for it in your bag or pockets of outerwear.

 Camera.

  Realme 7 Pro has Quad rear cameras, 8MP( utrawide with f\2.2), 64MP ( wide with f\1.8), 2MP ( macro with f\2.4) and 2MP ( depth with f\2.4). On the front you see a 32MP camera with f\2.5.

The quality of shooting in automatic mode on the main module, as expected, depends on the quality of lighting, if it is enough, then detailed shots with a small amount of noise are obtained, the dynamic range is at a decent level, if desired, it can be slightly corrected with the option "Vivid AI the case there are misses with the color rendition. So it is better to turn it on when, according to the sensations, one or another shade needs to add saturation. If you shoot in full resolution mode, the detail becomes richer, and the amount of noise increases. If you do not strive for the number of pixels, then the auto mode with 16 megapixel frames will also suit. Portrait shooting is also on the level, with high-quality bokeh and good contrast.

The 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens has replaced the telephoto lens in both. This fact is likely to confuse some users, for example, those who often do subject photography. There are no questions about the quality of frames, except that at times the white balance "dances", well, there are usually questions about the dynamic range. But visual artifacts and noise are minimal. The auxiliary lenses are unremarkable, the depth sensor works flawlessly.

The front camera of the realme 7 Pro received a resolution of 32 megapixels, the ultra-wide angle was abandoned here, apparently, the users also decided this when voting. I do not exclude the moment with the price, they could have decided to leave one camera for a more adequate price tag. The module produces quite adequate quality frames, especially if you look at colors and contrast. The dynamic range is also pleasing, but the detailing fails in places. Face unlocking is fast, but the print on the screen is a little faster and, of course, more reliable.

Several filters for night photography ("Cyberpunk", "Flamingo" and "Modern Gold") have been added to the camera software, they change the color scheme, it turns out in a peculiar way, it is interesting for social networks and similar creativity. Video shooting received a new AI Color Portrait mode, it allows you to select red, blue or green when shooting, and leave other objects in black and white. In the process of shooting, you can take a photo, which I did not fail to use. In general, you can indulge, the idea on the market is not new, I have encountered a similar option in Moto devices. Support for two modes of stabilization when shooting video is also in place, as well as fast and slow motion. There are also modes for night shooting: normal and tripod mode with a shutter speed of about 40 seconds.

Conclusion.

 New items can be safely called ambiguous in terms of positioning. Nominally, the older model retained the hardware platform of its predecessor, having received a number of top-end "chips" from the flagship models and at the same time yielding to the "younger" model with an increased refresh rate. Realme 7 Pro stands out for its very fast charging, AMOLED display and stereo speakers, and there are a number of interesting shooting modes. The visual part of the new products is to my liking, there will definitely be those who prefer a brighter design.

I would rate realme 7 Pro as a good smartphone for AMOLED lovers, however, when choosing between the presented realme novelties, I would advise you to choose your preferred scenarios and build on them. The competitors are not far behind, in comparison with which realme 7 Pro looks advantageous in some aspects, but only at a cost of 24,990. The step with new smartphones is at least unusual.  What do you think? Have you used the smartphone? Do you recommend it? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
