Realme 7 full review, what to expect
The Realme 6 was released about six months ago, the more reason it isn’t full-fledged, generational upgrade. However, few new aspect are there to elevate the user experience more. Take for example, the new Realme 7 arrives with a bumper 5,000 mAh battery instead of the 4,300 mAh found on Realme 6 in addition to the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone Reliability Verification.
The Realme 7 remains the first ever smartphone to have it, but it’s unknown what this certification serves to confirm.
The added MediaTek Helio G95 gaming-centric chipset is among the new features, and as MediaTek detailed, it can lightly be termed an upgrade compred to the G90. More like a refresh – just like the Realme 7 itself. Oh, do not forget, there are new paint jobs as well.

Software And Hardware
Hardware-wise, remains only differences compared to the Realme 6. However, the fast growing smartphone manufacturers has a couple of new features in store users. The camera comes with a Starry Mode and even though this hardly constitutes an upgrade, Realme insists that the shift from Samsung’s 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor to Sony’s IMX682 has offered them an opportunity to add an upgrade to the 64MP mode.
Shifting away from the specs. After few days if usage personally, it already felt pretty familiar. It’s a refreshed and upgraded Realme 6, after all.
