2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • The design of the Realme X3 SuperZoom is identical to the Realme 6 Pro - it looks elegant and beautiful (though, the plastic frame and overused design might not be of everyone's taste)
  • The dual hole-punch cutout at the front gives the phone a modern appearance
  • Fingerprint Sensor is embedded in the unlock button and it is quick (though, it is a bit unreliable)
  • Good 6.6-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display - it gives off quite punchy, and vivid colours (though, an AMOLED display would be appreciated at this price)
  • The 120Hz refresh rate on the Realme X3 SuperZoom makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use
  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as app cloning, Google Assistant, a gaming mode, digital wellbeing, and contactless payments among others - there are some more interesting 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
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Snapdragon 855 Plus 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 at the highest settings with ease
  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, an 8MP periscope telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Daylight photos from the SuperZoom's main cam are very good - it captures a lot of fine detail and processes it in a natural manner, so it doesn't have an artificial look
  • The 8MP ultra-wide angle cam turns in a solid performance too, with good detail and wide dynamic range
  • The telephoto camera of the Realme is the real standout feature - it can zoom up to 5x optically and captures sharp and detailed images with high contrast - colours and dynamic range are praiseworthy as well
  • Portraits are good too, the blur quality is nice and the intensity is just right
  • Very good dual selfie cameras, 32MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - 32MP camera of the Realme X3 SuperZoom takes really good selfies with a ton of detail and the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie
  • Very good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - the SuperZoom delivers a solid day and a half of battery life, even with heavy usage
  • The bundled 30W fast charger is very quick and manages to charge the battery from zero to about 90 per cent in an hour
  • The X3 Superzoom is a pretty good buy for its price - the display is great for an LCD, performance is solid, and battery life is excellent and the cameras are good enough
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • The Realme X3 SuperZoom is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g
  • Low-light photos from the Realme X3 SuperZoom aren't quite as good, images from the main cam are on the soft side and quite noisy too - Night mode improves things a bit but the quality of the shots is still not exciting
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)
  • Overall, the Realme X3 SuperZoom offer versatile cameras, but they are inconsistent and a bit unreliable to be the go-to shooter in your pocket
  • No headphone jack
