2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Beautiful, sleek design with a silver finish that switches colours as per angled light
  • The front is sharp and trendy with a pill-shaped punch-hole on the top-right that has the two front-facing cameras
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner is quick
  • Vivid, crisp 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution - the display looks punchy and you can tweak the display colour mode as well as the colour temperature
  • Vivo claims the peak brightness of 1200 nits, which makes it a comfortable screen to look at even in direct sunlight
  • Decent performance from the Snapdragon 712 SOC - casual and day-to-day applications run fine without any issues
  • Good quad-camera setup - a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the primary camera manages good shots with ample detail, objects at a distance are visible on zooming in
  • The ultra-wide-angle gives a fun, wider perspective to images (though, the details aren't as good as the primary camera)
  • The portrait mode works well and it lets you select the level of blur before taking a shot - edge detection is good in well-lit conditions
  • In low light, the phone takes decent photos - the night mode makes the scene brighter and objects in the shadows more recognisable (though, it's a little slow and forces you to hold the camera still)
  • The 32MP selfie camera is capable of delivering some very good selfies that are sharp and detailed - There is also an 8MP ultra-wide sensor that lets you take wide selfies and fit more subjects or people into one shot
  • Very good battery life with the 4500 mAh battery - it can manage about a day and a half worth of use out of the battery in one charging cycle
  • Charging is quick, and the phone manages to charge to 83 per cent in an hour
  • The Vivo V19 is a good camera phone which nails the basics with a trendy design, crisp AMOLED display and very good battery with fast charging
  • Charming, fresh rear design - the Realme 7 Pro features a mirror-split design, which creates some interesting patterns when light hits it
  • The front now has a single camera which sits to the top-left of the phone and looks sleek
  • Even though it uses plastic for the frame, the Realme 7 Pro feels well-built and sturdy
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor works well, and face recognition is equally quick
  • The Realme 7 Pro is slimmer (8.7mm) and lighter (182g), compared to the Realme 6 Pro - makes it a lot more comfortable to hold and use
  • Punchy, vivid AMOLED 6.4 inches panel - it is bright, colours are rich, and thanks to this type of panel, the 7 Pro has an always-on display mode
  • Software on the Realme phones is much improved since the company switched to Realme UI, it is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some exciting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • There are still several pre-loaded apps however (though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled)
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Realme 7 Pro gets to keep the same SOC as the 6 Pro, the Snapdragon 720G is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG mobile with ease
  • Good quad cameras at the back - the main unit boasts a 64MP sensor, with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP micro and a 2MP depth sensor - Realme has upgraded the main sensor with a Sony sensor instead of a Samsung sensor on the Realme 6, everything else remains the same
  • The daylight photos from the main sensor preserve the natural colour and have good exposure - it exhibits improved dynamic range, with better details compared to the Realme 6 - the new sensor is slightly better than the old one in the Realme 6
  • The ultra-wide camera captures a wider perspective but details and colours are weaker compared to the main sensor as expected
  • Portrait shots generally look good, and you get the option to adjust the background blur before shooting
  • Low light photos look cleaner too, with less grain - shots captured using Night mode look more pleasing, compared to what the Realme 6 can produce
  • The 16MP camera can take decent selfies - The selfie portrait mode is useful as it manages to correctly crop out the background, and there's also Night mode for bright selfies even in the dark
  • Video rec. is decent, you have the option to rec. up to 4K without stabilisation - there's also Ultra Steady mode which offers great stabilisation but videos look a bit soft - ultra-wide camera videos are stabilised but less detailed, the resolution is limited to 1080p
  • Overall, the cameras on the Realme 7 are a bit improved than the previous gen, which always a good thing
  • The Realme 7 Pro boasts a stereo speaker setup - 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 fidelity
  • Very good battery life from the 4500 mAh battery - even with medium to heavy usage, it will get you a day and half of runtime on one charge
  • 65W SuperDart Charge fast charging is best in class and takes just about 40 mins to fill up the phone
  • Realme has done a fairly good job in crafting the 7 Pro - it brings some meaningful upgrades to the Realme 6 Pro in the form of an AMOLED screen, stereo speakers, and much faster charging
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Software continues to be a relatively weak point for Vivo, with a cluttered Funtouch UI - there's also plenty of bloatware (though it is quite feature-packed)
  • However, this processor is commonly found in smartphones priced at around Rs. 15, 000 and phones such as the Realme X2 Pro feel faster because of the better processor
  • The macro camera is just average and the output is restricted to 2-megapixels only
  • However, this is not the best all-rounder and the choice of processor for this price is a bit disappointing, when phones like the Realme X2 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro offer very good performance for the price and are better all-round phones
  • Realme downgraded the display in terms of refresh rate and it's a 60 Hz display
  • The 2MP macro camera is not great, and even photos taken in broad daylight look quite poor

  1. The Vivo V19 does pack in good cameras, a big battery and the display is vivid... but doesn't have a very powerful processor, and that might be the deal-breaker for potential buyers
