Realme 7 Review
Here’s my Realme 7 review which is now out in the market with retail price of Php14,990 and features a 2nd gen Sony 64MP quad camera and 16MP in-display selfie camera plus a Helio G95 processor.
You can check out the unboxing and first impressions too!
If there’s any significant changes to the Realme 7, it would have to be the weight. The realme 7 is heavier than the realme 6. The 7 weighs 196.5g versus the 6 which weighs 191 g. Design-wise there’s nothing that’s been changed between the new smartphone and the previous version.
Still pulling in some weight in terms of design, we have a new back design for the realme 7 which they refer to as the AG split design. Definitely helped make the smartphone feel “premium” despite the wallet-friendly price tag.

There’s still that slight bump that makes up the quad camera system aka the main camera.
Meanwhile, like the realme 6, we still have a punch hole main camera. Just one though unlike other smartphones out in the market.
The realme 7’s main selling point would have to be the Sony 64MP Quad Camera which is a HUGE upgrade from the already great mid-range cameras. Like the 6, we have the usual suspects for shooting modes including:
- Night mode
- Google Lens
- Pano or Panorama
- Ultra Macro
- Expert Mode
- Time Lapse
- Slo Mo
There’s a smarter base AI also in the camera which detects what you are focusing on, making it easier to use the best settings. Point it to a series of text and it will highlight the text and focus on food and it will make the output sharper and crisper than your average cameras.

Battery and Charging
I love the battery for the Realme 7. It takes a whole day of usage to go from 100 to 5% and it takes less than an hour to fill up (as advertised). This is achieved thanks to the Dart30 charging system realme uses on their latest products.
Also major points for using Type C. Thank you realme for pushing the acceptance of type-c ports and chargers.
Like it’s predecessor, the 7 also doesn’t heat up even if you crank your game to ultra settings.
We know also that processor is different from the Realme 7 Pro but given the chance, the Helio G95 processor still packs a pinch when playing “heavier” games like Mobile Legends, COD Mobile and even Genshin Impact.
Here’s a sample of the fluidity and zero lag for the 7.
Also happy to report in this Realme 7 review that the phone doesn’t heat up which is a really good thing. No wonder Moonton picked realme as a main partner locally.
Realme 7 review Verdict
For its price, this phone is definitely powerful.
The biggest pull for me to own this phone is the 2nd generation 64MP camera which helps me even in this pandemic as I continue mobile toy photography and vlogging. Video and photo is good and just like the 6, playing games like “Mobile Legends” is such a breeze. And it doesn’t strain the eye too thanks to the 90hz screen refresh rate.
Audio is also good and solid and the battery life is INSANE!
