Realme X7 Max 5G Review. Realme’s new X7 Max smartphone will compete against previously introduced and forthcoming models from OnePlus, Xiaomi, and Vivo, among others. Less than six months after the Realme X7 and X7 Pro were launched, this new model ups the ante in terms of CPU power and features in order to remain competitive in the highly competitive sub-$420 category. The Realme X7 Max starts at $370, which is much less than the X7 Pro’s initial price of $370, despite featuring a higher-end chipset.
The most significant change is the inclusion of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, which is believed to be more powerful but also more energy efficient than the Dimensity 1000+ found in the Realme X7 Pro (Review). This CPU has eight cores in addition to an integrated Mali-G77 graphics processor. A stainless steel and copper vapour cooling system contributes to the system’s long-term performance.
Realme X7 Max Review – More Features
Additionally, Realme touts the SoC’s extensive 5G compatibility, which includes various bands, dual standby and standalone mode on both SIMs, and 5G carrier aggregation. Although 5G is still a long way from being widespread in India, we’ll be evaluating this SoC’s processing capability in our thorough evaluation.
Another important difference is the Realme X7 Max’s design. The massive ‘Dare to Leap’ motto across the back has been removed, as it was on the more colourful Realme X7 (Review) and X7 Pro models, and was inescapable on the Realme 8 series. Rather than that, we have a scaled-down version enclosed in a box underneath the Realme brand. It’s still rather noticeable and catches the light at certain angles, but it’s considerably less obtrusive than it was before.
The back surface is mostly matte textured plastic, but there is a broad, glossy, off-center stripe that runs through the camera module and includes the new logo arrangement. While the stripe is very fingerprint-prone, the rest of the back is not, and it also feels unexpectedly like one of Realme’s inexpensive C-series phones rather than a luxury one. The back plate even flexes somewhat when pressed with a finger.
With a weight of 179g and a thickness of 8.4mm, it fits well in the hand, however one-handed usage may need some stretching. The body is splash-resistant to IPX4 standards, and Realme utilised Asahi Dragontrail glass on the front. There are three colour options: Asteroid Black, Mercury Silver, and Milky Way, which the firm admits is difficult to explain but seems to be an iridescent light purple hue.
Realme X7 Max Review – Full HD+ Super Amoled Display
You’re getting a 6.43-inch full-HD+ Super Amoled display with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of up to 360Hz, which gamers will love. Although HDR is not mentioned in the phone’s specifications, it boasts a maximum brightness of 1000nits and a claimed 100 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut. In the top left corner, there is an in-display fingerprint sensor and a tiny hole for the front camera. Stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos compatibility should result in an enjoyable overall experience, as we’ll see in the complete review. On the bottom, there is a 3.5mm headset port, which the Realme X7 and X7 Pro lacked. Once again, the corporation cites customer input as the rationale for this move.
Realme has released two variants: one with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at $370, while the other with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is priced at $370. Notably, the Realme X7 Pro was introduced with just 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but at a price of $370. The business has adopted UFS 3.1 storage, which speeds up app loading, but there is no microSD card slot. The battery capacity of 4500mAh is very standard for this class. The X7 Max charges at a maximum of 50W and, like its brothers, comes packaged with a 65W charger.
Realme X7 Max Review – Cameras
Three back cameras are flush with the elevated rear module. You get a main camera with 64 megapixels, an ultra-wide camera with 8 megapixels, and a macro camera with 2 megapixels. Realme highlights many new features made possible by the Dimensity 1200’s capabilities and Realme UI 2.0. The most notable of them is an enhanced Nightscape mode, which collects and analyses full-resolution 64-megapixel images to maximise detail. Additionally, there is a potentially extremely handy AI Passport Photo option that should allow you to capture selfies with the backdrop completely removed.
The new Realme X7 Max will fight against the newly introduced Mi 11X (Review), the OnePlus Nord (Review) and its imminent successor, as well as the Samsung Galaxy A52 (Review). It may also compete with the incoming Poco F3 GT, which is powered by the same Dimensity 1200 SoC.
If you just purchased a Realme X7 Pro, you’re definitely irritated by the X7 Max’s rapid introduction with improved specs at a lesser price. However, we’re currently working on a comprehensive assessment of this new model, which will give you a better picture of how the two models compare in the real world. That will be covered in the near future on CreativBuzz.com, so stay tuned. If you want to see more tech reviews, please check our Reviews section.
