Realme 7 is an affordable smartphone –θήκες κινητών– that covers the basics that a user needs. With the large 6.5-inch screen, the 90Hz refresh rate and the glamorous new MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, it shows good features, beating the competition with other phones at comparable prices such as the Samsung Galaxy A21S and the Honor 20e.
Turn it on and the 90Hz display is a great introduction to the Realme 7 experience, even if combined with LCD technology. No, it is not the best screen we have seen and it loses when we put it next to the screen of Realme 7 Pro. However, for the asking price of € 219, the mobile has everything it needs.
Add to the mix a huge 5000mAh battery and 30W fast charge and you will not find many phones at this price and build quality. Realme 7 is a phone that breaks them and could be the best in its class for a certain type of user. Here it is worth noting that Realme is so confident in its mobiles that it gives us 3 Years … Yes 3 year warranty and extends the free replacement policy from 1 month to 2 months for DOA mobiles.
There is a matte finish around the back that looks rich and feels less sticky than that of the Realme 6 and X50 Pro. The vertical stripe that penetrates the camera environment looks impressive and leads the eye to the brand logo on the back of the phone and yes when you look at the back of the phone you feel that this glossy phone has a premium feel.
Yes, there is a camera frame on the back of the Realme 7. It is tall and slim and while it is not very visible, when you place the Realme 7 in the included case, it disappears completely. Realme typically uses a non-metallic material in mid-range devices. Realme 7 is no different. The back is polycarbonate, shiny and elegant. I have no problem with the polycarbonate back, although a metallic finish would not be bad in any case as long as there is no wireless charging.
On the right of the device we find the Power button which also works as a fingerprint sensor and of course is very fast and quite accurate. On the left are the volume buttons and the tray for SIM and microSD cards.
Finally at the bottom of the device we find the 3.5mm socket for the headphone jack, the USB-C port and a speaker which we can not say has a very good or loud sound, but it sounds ok despite the dolby digital sound.
The Realme 7 and Realme 6 have the same 6.5-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400, so there is nothing revolutionary here. But here Realme maintains the refresh rate of 90Hz, and of course helps it outperform the 60Hz competition from other manufacturers.
The screen comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection to keep the Realme 7 screen free of scratches and on the top left there is a selfie camera in a small hole in the screen. All of these combine to create an exciting, competitive on-screen experience, even if it’s the one we’ve seen in the previous model.
With the support of the new MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, the power of the Realme 7 is actually very comparable to that of its more expensive brother, the Realme 7 Pro (REVIEW) powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G. With a Geekbench 515 rating of single-core and 1625 multi-core, the Realme 7 is in the same category as the Poco X3 NFC, which starts at € 269, so it is quite competitive with all other phone brands.
We were able to play Genshin Impact for an hour at 60fps with just a few stutters – and that’s quite impressive given the scale of the game. Increase the graphics settings to the maximum and the game is still playing, but it gets a little slower. The Realme 7 also keeps its temperatures low, with the phone’s carbon fiber cooling system seem to be doing a good job.
The main difference between the Realme 7 versions in Europe and India is the phone that was released in India and has a 64MP camera, while the European Realme 7 comes with a 48MP sensor – an analysis that we see in everything from the Honor View 20 of 2019, to OnePlus 8 in 2020. Not all implementations of a 48MP sensor are the same and there is no OIS, of course we do not expect the performance of the OnePlus 8 camera here.
Fortunately, the Realme 7 camera is at least quite good. Its primary sensor is combined with an f / 1.8 lens and comes with an 8MP ultrawide camera with an f / 2.3 lens. There’s also a fixed focus macro camera and a depth sensor – both at 2MP.
The Realme 7 comes with one of the largest batteries in its class, a 5,000 mAh cell. Also, Realme Dart charging makes its comeback, with 30W speeds that provide full charge in just over an hour and 50% in less than 30 minutes.
There is really a lot to be said for the battery as it is so reliable. With 90 minutes of video playback at maximum brightness, the Realme 7 lost just 11 percent and in normal use, the phone lasts a comfortable day and can be extended to two if used sparingly. Dive into the energy-saving modes in the settings and you will not be surprised if you could stretch it to a third day of use for sure with fairly moderate use.
