Realme X7 Pro 5G review: The best pick under Rs 30,000?

Realme X7 Pro Specifications: 6.5-inch full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate | MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ 5G processor | 64MP+8MP+2MP+2MP quad rear camera setup | 32MP selfie camera | 4,500mAh battery with 65W fast-charging
Realme X7 Pro: What is good and bad?
The Realme X7 Pro offers a premium design and feels very good to hold. The device has a matte surface with a frosted glass finish, just like the OnePlus 7T. The Mystic Black color model of the X7 Pro looks beautiful and classy. The color of the back panel shifts from bluish-grey to pink and yellow when you look at it from different angles in the light. The phone also has a massive placement for Realme’s ‘Dare to leap’ branding, adjacent to the camera module.
The back panel didn’t attract fingerprints, though, the device is a bit slippery. The bundled case should offer relief to users. Just like OnePlus Nord, there is no headphone jack here. So, if you haven’t yet upgraded to wireless earphones, now is the time to do that as the mid-range segment is gradually getting rid of the audio jack.
The phone has a USB Type-C port and stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos. The speakers sound great while gaming. One will also enjoy binge-watching content on this device as sound output is impressive for the price. It is clear and loud enough with some depth.
The Realme X7 Pro has a 6.5-inch FHD+ display. The device features slim borders around the display and the circular notch on the top left corner is not as small as seen on some of the smartphones. There is no support for HDR 10+, unlike OnePlus Nord.

The display renders vibrant colours and deep blacks. We had no issues in viewing the device’s screen in harsh sunlight. The 120Hz refresh rate did make browsing or navigating around the interface smoother.
The day-to-day performance of the smartphone was a breeze and the multi-tasking experience was also smooth. The Realme X7 Pro packs MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1000+ processor. We played Genshin Impact open-world game with graphics set to Medium and the performance was very pleasing. However, when graphics and other settings were set to High, we saw noticeable lag and stutter. The back panel of the device got warm after 60 minutes of gameplay.
The in-display fingerprint sensor is very fast to unlock the X7 Pro. The new handset from Realme comes with support for 5G. While India is yet to get this feature, it is good to have a future-ready device at an affordable price.
The company is shipping the device with Android 10, just like Xiaomi Mi 10i. Realme is one of the brands that never fail to offer the latest Android OS, which is why it is quite surprising. Nevertheless, you get features like Always-on-Display (AOD) with several Digital and Analog styles.
Realme should introduce the Insight clock style-like feature found on OnePlus phones. It gives you an insight into how much you have used your phone and unlocked it. You also have the Digital Wellbeing feature on the device. I would like to mention that Realme’s native apps take a certain amount of space and you can’t even uninstall those, which is quite annoying. Realme X7 Pro 5G review: The best pick under Rs 30,000
