Why the realme 7 Pro is a good buy in 2021

The realme 7 Pro is one of the best smartphones of 2020. It’s offering a large screen, powerful CPU, great cameras, and a large battery with fast charging. But how about in 2021? Is it still a good buy? We think so. Read on to find out why.

It’s a great multimedia device

Multimedia consumption is still on the rise in 2021. We still download and stream movies, TV series, and music on our mobile devices. And most of the time, we don’t have to do it on the big screen as our mobile devices are good enough. The realme 7 Pro is one of those devices that is great for multimedia consumption because of its 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2400) Super AMOLED display at 409ppi. You can expect a vibrant screen with punchy colors and deep blacks. You can also turn on OSIE Vision Effect, which uses Artificial Intelligence to enhance colors and picture quality for supported apps.

For audio, you’re getting dual stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos. This means that you’re getting a loud and immersive experience with a clear and crisp sound, which is perfect for binge-watching on Netflix or YouTube. If you have TWS earbuds, you can connect them via Bluetooth or use your favorite wired headphones using its 3.5mm audio port.

It’s powerful enough for gaming

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with its Adreno 618 GPU and 8GB of RAM will breeze through anything you throw at it. From our experience, it’s snappy, apps launch fast, and multitasking is a breeze. Everything is just responsive, even with its in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock. In terms of gaming, it can handle the most popular titles out there in mid to high settings. And you don’t have to worry about storage as it has 128GB with a dedicated slot for a microSD card.

It’s a versatile shooter

The realme 7 Pro is equipped with a wide range of shooters. It’s got a 64MP Sony IMX682 F1.8 main, 8MP F2.3 ultra-wide, 2MP F2.4 macro, and 2MP F2.4 B&W for depth sensing.

Shots taken from the rear cameras have accurate colors, good dynamic range, and sharp details, especially when you take advantage of the 64MP lens. It also has effects like the Dazzle AI color button to get boosted colors. It’s also good for night photography thanks to its Night Mode.

The front camera has a high-resolution 32MP shooter with portrait and beauty effects for selfies that’s clear, clean, sharp, and bright.

It can keep up with heavy usage

Given the realme 7 Pro’s power and features, it certainly begs to be used all the time. Good thing realme equipped it with a 4,500mAh battery, which can last a whole day of heavy usage. Our video loop test even yielded 24 hours and 32 minutes of playback.

And when it’s time to replenish the battery, you don’t have to wait that long as the 65W SuperDart fast charging can bring it back to 100% capacity in under an hour.

It’s more affordable now


When the realme 7 Pro launched in the Philippines last year, it is offered at a competitive price of PHP 17,990. Now, realme is making it even more competitive by slashing PHP 2,000 off of its current SRP, allowing you to get this mid-ranger at just PHP 15,990.

So, if you’re on a hunt for a powerful smartphone under PHP 16K, better check out the realme 7 Pro. It’s a feature-packed device at a low price.
