I don’t know if it was the best strategy to launch two (2) mobile phones with the same size and camera, with a different SoC and a close price range at the same time. But realme is unstoppable, they launched realme 7 and 7 Pro in the Philippines, simultaneously.
We had the realme 7 Pro’s article ahead, so may I please direct you to the following articles about it in the list below:
realme 7 Quick unboxing
Now, let me show you my quick unboxing of the realme 7.
realme 7 vs realme 7 Pro
Like the realme 7 Pro, this one has the essential accessories — high-end USB Type-C, fast charger (30W SuperDart Charge), a free jelly case, and the paper documentation.
Offhand, you’ll see a closely-similar device. The size’s display is almost the same — 6.5 inches for the 7 and 6.4 for the Pro.
The fingerprint scanner on the 7 Pro is in-display while on 7, it is side-mounted in conjunction with the power button.
In terms of the weight, the 7 weighs 196.5 g, while the Pro weighs 182 g. Both use dual-Nano SIM slots with a dedicated microSD card slot.
Both have 3.5mm audio jack but ships with no earphones.
Both have quad-camera setup but different camera modules. See the picture below.
The front cameras of both phones are also different, the 7Pro has a 32 MP, f/2.5, 24mm while the 7 has 16 MP, f/2.1, 26mm. Both can record 1080p video.
In terms of battery capacity, the 7 comes with a 5,00mAH, while the Pro has 4,500mAH. For you to decide which one to buy, consider the 65W SuperDart charger on the 7 Pro and the 30W charger on the 7.
On the cameras, I haven’t fully tested the realme 7. You can expect them in my full review, but here are some initial captures.
Which one to buy?
Personally, I can’t say 7 or 7 Pro. Because it will depend on a few different things — among them is the budget, are you willing to spend P17,990 or the more affordable P14,990? Another thing to consider is the SoC, are you the kind of user who is loyal to Snapdragon or you don’t mind using Mediatek.
Realme 7 has Mediatek Helio G95 while the 7 Pro has Snapdragon 720G.
