The new realme 7 maintains the essence of its predecessor but stands out for having an elegant design inspired by the space of mirrors in nature. A terminal that presents a brilliant mirror design and that, thanks to its design division, manages to generate a new visual impact, with light effects that reveal “a balanced natural beauty,” according to the company.

Also, AG processing with classic CD textures makes realme’s new smartphone look more premium. It is a smartphone with a considerable size and a weight that almost reaches 200 grams. The realme 7 features a 6.5-inch FHD + IPS screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a hole in the upper left corner. In the rear area, a clean format is maintained, and a side strip is seen in which the silkscreen with the company logo appears, and the vertical camera module is made up of four sensors.

In the upper area is the main speaker, while in the lower part of the terminal is the USB Type-C port, accompanied by the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, the microphone, and other speakers. On the left side, there are both the controls for raising and lowering the volume and the tray for the SIM card.

On the other hand, the screen color temperature adjustment function is also available, increasing it to reduce the blue radiation of the screen and thus avoid visual fatigue.

Among its features, the MediaTek Helio G95 is manufactured at 12nm, which makes it the most powerful and efficient processor. It is also equipped with two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores up to 2.05GHz and six high-performance Cortex-A55 cores up to 2GHz, along with the Mali-G76 900MHz GPU. A combination that manages to offer a smooth experience for lovers of mobile games. From the company itself, they told us that the realme 7 is the gaming device of the new mid-range series, and that is why this terminal, and not the Pro model, incorporates a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.

In addition, in just 26 minutes, it can be charged almost half.

During these weeks, with regular use for calls and consulting the different social networks, the battery has lasted a little more than a day and a half.

The least good about realme 7

realme UI progresses but needs improvement

realme UI progresses but needs improvement

The realme 7 arrives with Android 10 as the operating system and the realme UI as the interface. A customization layer that evolves favorably over time but still has some features to improve. The company has made it clear that the user interface has been designed within mind the preferences and aesthetics of young consumers. However, the customization layer becomes somewhat tedious and has inherited some of the problems from ColorOS, the OPPO software on which this layer is based.

It should be noted that realme UI is not a bad interface. On the contrary, it offers a fluid and fast performance and an excellent design, although some things could be improved. One of the aspects to improve for the future is everything related to the organization of the settings menus or solving the problems that we are already used to with smartphones from China, such as those related to notifications. However, it should be noted that these improvements do not tarnish the experience of using the realme 7.

These are the cameras of the realme 7

This is the cameras of the realme 7

In terms of photography, the brand’s new mid-range phone offers a total of five cameras. There is a configuration of four rear cameras in the back area formed by a 48-megapixel primary sensor Samsung GM1, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel portrait sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. It should be noted that the Samsung GM1 sensor has the tremendous light-sensing ability, and it comes with an aperture of f / 1.8. In the same way, there is a camera on the front for selfies with 16 megapixels of resolution, located in a hole in the screen located in the upper left part.

The camera application of this terminal includes from video recording to photography, panoramic or portrait mode, among others. When taking a photograph, several options are possible thanks to Artificial Intelligence, such as reducing the subject’s face, making a series of retouching, refining the look, enlarging the eyes, reducing the nose or sharpening the chin, among others. . Some options that make taking photos more fun and even help when taking a photo with which to show off on social networks.

Some options are in addition to those available when editing an image with Beauty mode, even whiten the teeth of the subject of an image, eliminate dark circles, or remove imperfections. Similar to the functions of the camera app of OPPO devices. In general, the primary cameras of the realme 7 offer good images, with a correct dynamic range, sharpness, quality, and saturation, and with little noise in any situation, even indoors.

The images also show a good level of detail, and the interpretation of colors is relatively neutral. As a point to improve, in some pictures with very illuminated areas, the device has not been able to process them well, and the macro sensor offers a result that does not stand out. The portrait mode offers high-level image quality, resulting in images with a more natural and better-achieved blur, although the front camera overexposes light backgrounds. For its part, the night mode improves the details of the shadows and brightness. As for the video, the device offers high-quality videos.
