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
  • 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
  • Elegant and understated design - the frosted glass back gives it a premium feel and the double punch hole in the front looks classy
  • Both the in-display fingerprint and face unlock work pretty fast
  • Large, vibrant and beautiful 6.4-inch sAMOLED panel - it's a treat to watch content and play games with the cool 90Hz refresh rate
  • The 90Hz refresh rate means everything feels super snappy on the phone - from UI animations & webpage scrolling to games
  • The screen also delivers HDR10+ support and a bunch of colour modes too, there is a dark mode as well to take advantage of the OLED’s inky blacks
  • Realme UI is one of the better takes on a custom OS from Realme - it's less cluttered, has some very neat touches, like being able to record screen activity with internal audio, change app icons and so on
  • Excellent performance with the best processor of the Android world, the Snapdragon 865 - it fly through routine tasks, like messaging, social networking, photography, and casual gaming sessions - the phone manages to run graphic-heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 with amazing smoothness
  • Good, versatile quad camera setup: 64MP primary + 12MP telephoto + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor
  • The pictures shot with the main photo mode look great with lots of details and accurate colours in good lighting conditions
  • Ultra-wide photos from the phone have good details and also capture colours well (though, they aren’t as detailed as pictures clicked with the main camera)
  • The 13MP telephoto camera can achieve 5X optical hybrid zoom and 20X digital zoom - the zoomed-in pictures look surprisingly clear and show a good amount of detail
  • The Realme X50 Pro clicks good selfies in good lighting - selfies clicked with the main 32MP camera sensor look sharp and with a good amount of detail - the portrait selfies also look great with sharp edges and the background properly blurred out
  • The ultra-wide selfie camera is sufficient for clicking group selfies (though, misses out on some details)
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support
  • The Realme X50 Pro also supports 5G and it future proofs the phone to use the feature when it will be available in India (though, don't buy this phone for 5G, there's practically no use for 5G in India right now, as it will take 2 or more years for 5G to come to India)
  • The Realme X50 Pro offers great battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - it will easily last one and a half days with a single charge
  • Insanely fast 65W Super Dart charging - the included 65W charger in the box takes just around 30 minutes to fully charge the phone, which is mind boggling
  • On the whole, the Realme X50 Pro is an excellent, top-grade addition to Realme's tradition of providing surprisingly reasonable priced phones - the best in class Snapdragon 865 with 90Hz smooth display and excellent stereo speaker make this phone one of the best bang for the buck phones at this price
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Realme downgraded the display in terms of refresh rate and it's a 60 Hz display
  • There are still several pre-loaded apps however (though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled)
  • The 2MP macro camera is not great, and even photos taken in broad daylight look quite poor
  • The design is very similar to every other Realme phone out there and the repetition of design is getting boring
  • On the heavy and chunkier side, weighing 207g and having 9.4mm thickness
  • The screen isn't very bright and using it in direct sunlight is difficult
  • Pictures clicked in low-light scenarios miss out on details, colours also look dull and hazy, the camera struggles to focus - the situation remains the same in selfie night mode, the dedicated Night mode resolves the problem slightly but not too much, the OnePlus 7T clicks much better low-light shots while being cheaper
  • Overall, the cameras on the Realme X50 Pro gives you a lot of perspective to play with but quality wise, they aren't the best and phones like OnePlus 7T produce better photos
  • No standard headphone jack - you will need to use either USB-C or wireless headphones (none of those are included in the retail package)
  • On the other hand, OnePlus 7T offers similar features (except 5G and SD865) and better cameras with one of the best software experiences in lesser money and comes out as a solid competitor
