    Realme 7 hands-on review

     33     

    The Realme 6 is a phone released about six months ago, so it's easy to see that this isn't a full-fledged, generational upgrade. However, there are a couple of new things that should elevate the user experience quite a bit. For instance, the new Realme 7 comes with a generous 5,000 mAh battery instead of the 4,300 mAh found on Realme 6 and there's also the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone Reliability Verification. The Realme 7 is the first smartphone to have it, but it's still unclear what this certification serves to confirm.

    The new MediaTek Helio G95 gaming-centric chipset is also on the list of new features, and as MediaTek detailed, it can hardly be called an upgrade compred to the G90. More like a refresh - just like the Realme 7 itself. There should be a slight increase in GPU performance due to the higher clocks, but that's pretty much it. Oh, and there are new paint jobs as well.
