The Realme X7 is a refreshing change in a sea of cumbersome mid-range tablets. After using the Xiaomi Mi 10i and the Samsung Galaxy F62, the Realme X7 looks so much more relaxed thanks to its smaller and more ergonomic build. In this analysis, we’ll hear more about the Realme X7.

First and foremost, the construction of this phone is excellent. It’s one of the lightest phones on the market, as I described earlier. In comparison to the Mi 10i and the F62, it is still very slim at just 8.1mm.
The back plate, on the other hand, is made of plastic. As a result, as we saw with our Realme 7 Pro, bruises and stains will appear over time. As a result, I prefer using a skin rather than a case here.
The Realme X7 has the same 6.4-inch touchscreen as the Realme 7 Pro on the front. A very nice AMOLED panel has been mounted by the company. The colours are pleasing to the eye, and the contact sensitivity is excellent. I wish it was a little brighter in terms of brightness, particularly when used outdoors, but it’s not disturbing.
However, given the recent announcement of the Redmi Note 10 Pro series, which features a 120Hz AMOLED screen, this one now feels like a concession with its 60Hz refresh rate. If not 120Hz, I believe Realme should have included a 90Hz panel.
But, again, the show on the Realme X7 is also excellent. A super-fast in-display fingerprint sensor is also included. So far, the unlocking experience has been fantastic, particularly given the device’s limited size. As compared to the newly released Galaxy A32, the fingerprint sensor is significantly faster here, which adds to the premium experience in my opinion.
Similarly, I was pleased with the device’s overall efficiency. In terms of benchmarks, the Dimensity 800U chip-set inside is on par with the Snapdragon 750G, and it’s finally awesome to see MediaTek and Qualcomm competing in the mid-range market.
In terms of real-world success, I’m very pleased with it so far. The UI seems to be well-designed, and applications load quickly.
Realme puts unused software to sleep on occasion to extend battery life. As a result, if you want to relaunch an app for a long period of time, it will reboot. Aside from that, the efficiency is adequate for the price, and it is unquestionably superior to Snapdragon 720G or 732G-powered phones.
- At the back, there are three cameras (64MP primary, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro)
- Within the punch-hole cutout is a 16MP selfie sensor
The mono speaker and vibration motor are both on the average side. Unlike the Realme 7 Pro and the Note 10 Pro, it lacks a dual speaker. As a consequence, the immersive auditory effect is missing. The audio quality, on the other hand, isn’t poor, and it doesn’t blur at high levels like the 7 Pro did.
In either case, this takes us to the subject of battery life. I was able to get a full day of stamina nearly every day with its 4300mAh cell, which isn’t considered a large battery by today’s standards. And you already know how much I depend on my cell. So, with its smaller battery size, I’m shocked by how long it can last.
Realme includes a 65W quick charger with the handset, which charges it from 0 to 100% in around 50 minutes. However, the charging access is reduced to 50W, which is slower than the Realme X7 Pro, which charges the 4500mAh battery in 35 minutes using the maximum potential of the 65W adapter.
