2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Charming, fresh rear design - the Realme 7 features a mirror-split design, which creates some interesting patterns when light hits it
  • The front is identical to the Realme 6 with a hole-punch and thin bezels all around
  • Even though it uses plastic for the frame and back panel, the Realme 7 feels well-built and sturdy
  • Face unlock and the side-mounted fingerprint sensor are quick
  • The Realme 7 is actually thicker (9.4mm) and heavier (196.5g) than the 6, and this is very noticeable in daily usage - one-handed texting or photography can get fatiguing really quickly due to the additional weight

Display

  • The Realme 7 gets the same large 6.5 inches IPS LCD as the 6 - it can get very bright, and colours are nicely saturated
  • The display supports up to 90Hz refresh rate which makes for a smooth experience - games that support 90Hz displays, like Alto's Odyssey, are particularly enjoyable to play

Software

  • 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)

Performance

  • Rapid performance from the new MediaTek Helio G95 chipset - the SOC performs similar to the Helio G90T with an updated GPU, so apart from smooth regular usage, you would be getting a boost in your gaming sessions

Camera

  • 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 2MP macro camera is not great, and even photos taken in broad daylight look quite poor

Battery

  • Excellent battery life from the 5000 mAh battery, which is a big upgrade the Realme 6 - even with medium to heavy usage, it will get you a day and half of runtime on one charge
  • 30W Dart Charge fast charging is very good and takes just about an hour to fill up the phone - it also supports 15W USB-C Power Delivery fast charging, which is handy

Verdict

  • The Realme 7 isn't a major update over the Realme 6, but it's a good enough refresh with its larger battery and better primary camera sensor - overall performance is very good, battery life is excellent, and the 90Hz display makes general usage feel smooth and fluid - the Realme 7 also looks great, it offers good value for your money
