Xiaomi has yet again managed to send ripples throughout the Indian smartphone industry with the launch of the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
The more feature-packed offering of the duo the Redmi note 7 pro packs some impressive Hardware.
At this price point, there is hardly any other smartphone that can match the on paper hardware promise of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. But does that translate to an equally impressive smartphone experience?
Let’s find out in our in-depth Redmi Note 7 Pro Review:
The Redmi series of budget smartphones have traditionally stuck with a generic design language that hardly stands out from the crowd.
But the Redmi Note 7 Pro marks a stark departure from the boarding design philosophy but opting for a more premium Gorilla Glass 5 sandwich design with a plastic ring that runs around the edges.
The glossy rear panel blends seamlessly with the curved edge profile and provides a nice in hand feel.
But the device attracts smudges and dust particles easily. In addition to the exterior strength Xiaomi claims that the internals is also protected to some extent from liquid damage facts to the watertight seals and the p2i hydrophobic nano coating that is claimed to protect the smartphone against accidental liquid spills.
It is worth mentioning here that the redmi note 7 pro can only handle liquidy splashes and it is not water resistant neither does it come with an IP certification so it would be wise to not done by smartphone in water.
Up front is the 6.3 inches full HD plus LTPS insel display that has a 19.5 esta 9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 409 PPI.
There is a small water drop notch at the top or dot not in Xiaomi’s words. The color reproduction of the display is good and so are the viewing angles.
However, we notice that the display is quite reflective and the sunlight legibility is also a bit on the lower side.
Overall the redmi note 7 throw is the best-looking smartphone in the segment and it also has a durability run to go with the elegant design.
Realme introduces the third generation of its main series that is Realme 3 just about a month ago and during the launch event, the company also teased the arrival of the Realme 3 Pro which seems to have gotten fans pretty excited and rightfully so the Realme 2 pro was a pretty good phone.
So, the Realme 3 Pro which I have here has some pretty big shoes to fill now this one is going to go up directly against the xiaomi redmi note 7 pro so it’s time to see if this can make the cut.
Now first glance one could easily mistake the Realme 3 pro for just a Realme 2 pro since it looks pretty similar from the front.
You have a notch on the top, you have slim bezels on three sides by relatively fat chin at the bottom and that’s pretty much it now on the back. If you remember the Realme 3 again the design should be very familiar to you, in fact, we have the realme 3 here and as you can see apart from the new color and the new pattern at the back it’s really hard to tell the difference between the 3 and the 3 pro.
Now Realme has made some subtle differences from three pros design compared to the three. For instance, there’s no unibody back so you have this plastic the panel over here the tapers along the edges and blends pretty well with the plastic sides.
It looks good and you don’t really feel any sharp edges when you hold it which is a nice thing. however, you do get brand new color options, for instance, the one that we have here is called nitro blue or it looks pretty good there’s a blend of blue and purple gradients and you have this little wavy design that you get that’s visible when light hits.
