Realme X7 Max 5G: Dare To Leap, But Do You Dare To Buy?

If you’re wondering why there is a ‘Max’ in the smartphone’s name, Realme uses it to honor the flagship MediaTek chipset. The X7 Max uses the newest and very powerful Dimensity 1200 chipset, one that guarantees a lot of performance overhead, and this is one of my favourite things about this phone.

The Realme X7 Max is one of those phones that leave a lasting impression, especially for what the entire package offers and costs. Although it is largely a derivative of the Realme X7 Pro but despite all the alterations, it delivers a great smartphone experience.

The 64MP primary camera on this phone can retain natural colours and most details of the shot. Daylight photos are mostly impressive and highly detailed. The night mode also works fine, but it could have been a bit better. The 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and the 2-megapixel macro camera on the phone just do the job.

The 16MP in-display front camera clicks good selfies but there is lil too much smoothing that happens, which you can lower to a good extent by turning off the AI Beauty feature. The Dimensity 1200 chipset inside really optimizes the whole process and the phone won’t heat up or lag while clicking photos.

Every feature of this phone is an upgrade over the previous models in the X7 series PLUS at a cheaper cost. The Realme X7 Max 5G even goes up against the likes of the OnePlus Nord and Google Pixel 4a and comes out unscathed. Some points to note:

  • The phone uses the Dimensity 1200 processor, which is the top-most chipset in MediaTek’s line and you’ll finally be free of stutters and lags while playing games.
  • Displays on Realme phones are usually quite on par with what industry standards. The X7 Max has a 120Hz Super AMOLED display for under 30K which is a good thing.
  • Cameras aren’t as great as the Google Pixel 4a but they’re pretty good nonetheless. The 64 MP primary camera can retain natural colours and most details especially during daylight.
  • It comes with a 4,500 mAh battery inside and with 50w fast charging on top. Pretty sweet!

So, do you dare to buy?
