Here is our review of the realme 7 5G smartphone.
On top of 5G compatibility, the realme 7 5G provides leap-forward performance with 1200Hz Ultra Smooth Display, 30W Dart Charge, 5000mAh large battery and a MediaTek Dimensity 800U powerful processor, making it a fantastic 5G all-rounder.
Enable Everyone to Leap to 5G Era
Being powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U makes the realme 7 5G the first phone in the price range to break the 340,000 benchmarks in Europe. This processor is made using the 7nm process and is both powerful and efficient. It is also equipped with two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2.4GHz and six high-efficiency Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2GHz, along with a Mali-G57 GPU.
Dimensity 800U also brings excellent network performance to the realme 7 5G. This is yet again another European first: the realme 7 5G is the first phone supporting 5G+5G DSDS in this price range in Europe. The smartphone also supports Dual 5G SIM, which means you can connect to 5G via either SIM card for a high-speed internet experience. It also supports 5G-CA (2CC 5G Carrier Aggregation) for a significant increase in performance and connection stability.
The realme 7 5G gets support for 12 main 5G bands around the world (n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38, n40, n41, n77, n78). This means that the realme 7 5G will deliver the fastest and most comprehensive 5G network experience.
Charge faster with 30W Dart Charge and 5000mAh Massive Battery
In today’s fast-paced world, the last thing we need is to be worrying about running out of battery. The good news is the realme 7 5G has a 5000mAh mega battery built in for ultra-long battery life. It also features 30W Dart Charge, enabling 50% charge in 26 minutes. The realme 30W Dart Charge adopts low-voltage and high-current solution, making it both safe and efficient.
Upgraded 120Hz Ultra Smooth Display
The refresh rate of the realme 7 5G has been upgraded to 120Hz, an increase of 33.3% when compared to the realme 7. A higher refresh rate will bring a smoother visual experience in normal usage as well as during gaming. It features a 6.5” size with punch-hole and achieves a 90.5% high screen-to-body ratio. All this makes it a perfect choice for gaming fans.
For information security, the device adopts the Side-fingerprint sensor, integrating fingerprint recognition with the border button together.
A Closer Look
The phone comes in Baltic Blue, which actually looks very nice. The rear of the phone is plastic, however it does cope well with dust and fingerprints, but realme have actually included a clear case in the box. This may not seem like a big deal, but everyone wants to put their expensive phone in a case to protect it and it’s usually just more money to spend, so well done realme!
The handset weighs around 200g and feels quite comfortable to hold, even for extended periods of either web surfing, social media access, media watching or even gaming!
The power button on the side of the phone also acts as a finger print scanner and is very well placed to use one handed.
The 6.5″ LCD display is good, and produces sharp clear images, which are especially good when watching any sort of media on the device. Another thing that works well is playing games – the games themselves appear from clear and sharp and more importantly very smooth! The overall performance of the device is excellent.
The device also support Dolby Atmos which really packs a punch, and the speakers are pretty good too.
The device uses the realme UI, which is custom built on top of Android 10, and it works very well. There are quite a lot of great easy to use features built into it, including screen recording.
The device has fantastic battery life – realme says you can get up to 2 days of use out of it, which to be honest is doable but only if you are not really pushing the device. That said you can easily get a full days use out of the device and more! There are also two different power save modes that are worth looking at to help you stretch out that all important battery life.
The battery charges very quickly, and i do mean very quickly! This is a really great feature, especially if you dont have a lot of time before needing to go somewhere and you have limited battery left.
The only thing worth mentioning is the camera. Its pretty good, but to be honest it’s not great. If you have the right lighting then the pictures come out well, if the lighting isnt great, then it’s really noticeable.
All in all this is a fantastic 5G capable smartphone, with excellent battery life, only slightly (and I do mean slightly) let down by the camera, but the price is excellent and so you should really take a look at it and see for yourself if it has everything you need.
The realme 7 5G smartphone is available now priced around £279.
