Realme 7 Unlocked: New Standards for Budget Phone
Realme first appeared in China in 2010 with the name "OPPO Real". It was a sub-brand of Oppo (which itself is a subsidiary of BBK Electronics) until its formation as a spinoff in spring of 2018. In May of that year, the newly formed company released their first ever smartphone, the Realme 1.
At the end of July 2018, former Oppo Vice President and Head of Oppo's Overseas Department, Sky Li, announced his official resignation from Oppo and his intention to establish Realme as an independent brand on Weibo. With the company slogan "Dare to Leap", he declared that in the future, the Realme brand would focus on providing mobile phones with solid performance and stylish design, offering young people a joyful life with affordable "technology" and "beauty".
Fast forward to 2020, and they released Realme 7. The company is pumping out new handsets at an incredible rate, this being the 21st in the 29 months the firm has existed, and they have the 22nd released too, the Realme 7 Pro.
Let’s take a closer look at the Realme 7 Unlocked specs.
Realme continues to rely on its tried and tested formula of offering great specs for the price. With the Realme 7, we get a 6.5 inch 90Hz refresh rate display, a decent mid-range gaming processor, a huge 5000 mAh battery, 30W Dart charging via USB-C port, Sony quad-camera array, and a headphone jack. On paper, this is a lot of smartphone for the money.
One thing Realme did well was to equip this phone with a 6.5-inch FHD+ (2400 x 1080) IPS display screen. This 405 ppi density panel is capable of a refresh rate of 90Hz, which is a rarity at this price range. Realme also offers the option of switching the refresh rate down to 60Hz to increase the battery life.
According to MediaTek, the Helio G95 with MediaTek HyperEngine Gaming Technology gives you fast and smooth action in your favorite titles through whole-device enhancements through four areas of enhancement that ensure your smartphone always keeps up with you. It's a 12nm FinFET processor from the Taiwan Semiconductor. The G95 features an Octa-Core CPU with two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores at 2.05GHz and six energy-efficient Corext-A55 cores at 2.0GHz.
Realme 7 is given the newer Sony IMX 682 sensor for the main 48MP camera. Its primary sensor is matched with an f/1.8 lens, and is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera with an f/2.3 lens. There’s also a fixed-focus macro camera and a depth sensor - both clocking in at 2MP. Realme ramps up the brightness in well-lit scenes and contrasts a fair bit, so the images look super zingy. They're social media ready and packing nice depth-a it's decent start, but any savvy photo enthusiast who wants to get the most out of the phone will need to fire up Expert mode every now and then. Noise is treated respectably and clarity is on the spot, making the camera very competitive.
Stable video is a recurring trend for the new Realme 7 and 7 Pro. Just like the Poco X3 NFC, the Realme 7 footage is smooth by default, which means that despite grain creeping in quite quickly, the results are still both stable and competitive. Video is captured at up to 4K (30fps) or Full HD (60fps) resolution, with Super Steady capture capped at 1080p.
The Realme 7 is loaded with one of the largest batteries in the world, at 5,000mAh, it’s a power-bank. Better still, Realme's Dart Charging returns, with 30W peaks providing a maximum charge in just over an hour, and 50 percent in less than 30 minutes. There really is very little to say about the battery, since it is so reliable. 90 minutes of video playback at peak brightness has depleted Realme 7 by just 11 per cent, and in regular use, one can stretch to two days if used sparingly. Slide the power-saving modes on in the settings, and it wouldn't be a surprise if it could extend it to the third day.
The Realme 7 comes with Android 10 preinstalled (rather than the latest Android 11), with Realme's own Realme UI on top. But the
The Realme 7 ticks pretty much all the boxes in terms of what defines a good smartphone – great hardware design, a 90Hz refresh rate screen, snappy performance, and excellent battery life. Add other great features such as a fingerprint scanner, NFC, 30W fast charging and a headphone jack, and this phone becomes even more attractive for a sub $250 smartphone.
