Realme 6i is the best selling phone on Flipkart according to recent reports. Realme 7i has been launched today. Does the realme 7i continue the legacy of the superhit realme 6i? Let’s learn more in this article.
Realme 7i overview
Realme 7i aims to bring the 90Hz smoothness and the flagship 64MP camera experience to the masses. The company has claimed this phone to be the cheapest one with these features. It features a large 5000maH battery. The charging however is capped at 18 watts. It is a decent offering for its price trading the FHD+ resolution for a 90Hz refresh rate.
Design and Display
Design of this phone is very unique in its price range. The back, though plastic, rocks a beautiful two-tone finish. A diagonal line separates the two surfaces. The top surface is a shiny one and the bottom one is matte for contrast. Camera cutout, however, is a familiar rectangular one. The fingerprint scanner sits on the rear. It is fairly ergonomic at 8.9mm thick and 188g heavy.
The display is a sizeable 6.5″ 90Hz AMOLED with a neat punch-hole cutout. The refresh rate is 90Hz which is the USP of this device. You will be losing out on the resolution, however for that smooth experience. Realme should have gone for an FHD+ panel at this price range but in vain. It is a regular 720p display. The bezels are quite thin but the chin is a little thick.
Realme has launched this new phone with an above-average chip from Qualcomm itself, the Snapdragon 662. It is basically a rebatched Snapdragon 665 with the difference being their launch dates. Snapdragon 662 supports a slightly low bandwidth and is a more recent version. It is based on Adreno 610 GPU for graphic-intensive tasks. This chipset is fine for day-to-day use and occasional gaming at the lowest settings only. A better chipset would be a welcome addition.
The camera is the main highlighting feature of this device. On paper, it brings a flagship 64Mp camera to this price range but unfortunately is not the same in reality. It still features worthless 2MP depth and macro lenses. So, only the 64MP main and 8MP are of some use. It features a 16MP sensor on the front.
Like every other device in its price range, it features a 5000maH battery. This phone can offer 9-10 hours of screen-on-time. The battery is coupled with an 18w fast charging. Realme certainly could do better in the charging department. A 30-watt dart charger at least would have been worth it.
The phone runs Android 10 out-of-the-box with realme UI on-top.
Realme 7i is a pretty decent phone at its price. The highlighting features are the 90Hz display and 64MP numbers, Realme should however stop playing with numbers and focus on the user experience. The step-up in the refresh rate is barely noticeable while the 720p screen is greatly noticeable. An HD+ screen at this price is downright unacceptable. Similarly, realme could do better in the charging department. This phone can be a viable option for the 64MP maniacs! I would personally NOT recommend this phone.
