Realme 7 Pro Announced at Budget Price | Best Budget Phone of 2020 ?

 Realme has announced their new 7 series lineup and is available for order on flipkart exclusively. Today we are reviewing the Realme 7 Pro phone. The biggest feature on the 7 Pro is the 65W Superfast Dart Charging that's available on very few phones so far and could soon become a norm by the end of the year. It has a battery capacity of 4500 Mah which is pretty decent to last longer than a day on daily usage basis. The 65W charger claims to charge from 0 to 100% in 34 Minutes! That's actually super fast. Personally speaking, not a big fan of these "Super" Fast chargers which wear off the batteries quickly , but man is that quick!

Coming to the hardware, it is powered by a relatively older processor - Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G . The 720 G is pretty good but at this point of time, the Snapdragon 765G is doing the round in most mid premium , so atleast a 730G would have made more sense. Then again the pricing for the 7 Pro balances the performance to cost debate. Moving ahead, we have 6.4" AMOLED display compared to the 6.6" LCD display on the Realme 6 Pro released last earlier in the year. The refresh rate chosen for the 7 Pro is interestingly disappointing of 60Hz. I mean in 2020, 90Hz is the minimum and I don't understand the reason behind shipping out 60Hz phone in the price bracket of 20K INR when other smartphone products offer 90Hz and more. Though Realme states that it was based on user choice between 90Hz LCD and 60Hz AMOLED , they chose 60Hz AMOLED. The choice should have been 90Hz AMOLED vs 120Hz AMOLED. Somehow, I feel the Realme 7 Pro was intended to release close to the end of the first half of the year and the pandemic situation pushed it further. The Realme 7 on the other hand has 90 Hz LCD display which I would prefer any day over 60Hz panel.

Speaking of cameras, again Realme has made interesting choices. The camera setup on the back is latest 64MP Sony IMX 682 + 8MP Ultra Wide + 2MP Macro and that's it! They don't have a fourth camera in place of 2 MP depth sensor. They have dropped the 12MP Telephoto from the Realme 6 Pro in the 7 Pro. The 64MP camera is a good performer,but going in favor of the depth sensor and retaining the Macro lens is not a wise choice. Instead, a combo of 64MP+8MP Ultra Wide + 8MP Telephoto + 2 MP Macro would have been better choice. On the front, they have a single 32MP Selfie shooter which is not wide enough with f/2.5 aperture. The camera segment has been fairly disappointing and the 64MP Sony IMX sensor is the only positive thing in the setup.

The other features include the 3.5 mm headphone jack (thumbs for that) ,USB-C Port, NAVIC Support (Indian Satellite based Navigation) , dual frequency GPS support and has passed the TUV splash test and reliability tests (not sure if it really adds to the value :P). Out of the box, it comes with Android 10 and should continue to have updates until Android 12 .

Coming finally to the pricing, the 6GB/128GB  model would cost Rs.19,999 and the 8GB/128GB model would cost Rs.21,999 on Flipakart and Realme websites. The sale would be starting from September 14th,2020, so mark the calendar if you found the Realme 7 Pro exciting! I personally would wait for the X series to launch :P

Don't think about Buying Tablet in 2020! They are going to be Dead!

Remember the time when the "mobile" phones were not "smart" yet and had this really compact form factor with durability such that they can only be destroyed by some natural calamity ? Yep, those times were not far from today ..just a decade ago and we didn't have to think about the phone falling off a cliff, or catching fire or trampled under a car or drowned into a sea! Then there was this highly delicate and expensive loner phone called the "iPhone" which required such extreme care, for you wouldn't be able to afford its maintenance! This phone was one of the first ones to start a trend of increasing the display size over the year and that led to hilarious memes as below Being mocked by their competition only strengthened their move and Apple went onto release the iPhone 11 Pro Max or Max Pro (whatever!) which was 6.5 inch long and was close enough to the prediction in the memes. This time it wasn't getting mocked but was

How to Pair Huawei Watch GT2 with Any Headphones within 1 min - the Perfect Hack

The Smartwatch and wearables industry has seen the biggest spike in 2019-2020 time frame. Starting off with Apple Airpods to may other brands trying to mimic the design and provide low cost alternatives the users have graciously welcomed each and every product in the line. There is a fan base for the neckband type, another base for the "TWS" (Truly Wireless) Earbuds and there's altogether separate base for the Wireless Headphones category. Then we saw an upsurge in the health monitoring wearable devices which was popularized by Fitbit and then in the last couple of years by Apple and Xiaomi. The current market has many players and there's no clear winner in terms of market share for the smartwatches / health monitoring wearables. Huawei has somehow missed the train and joined in late for the party. But as they say in Hindi - " Der aaye Durust Aaye .. "  which means - Came in Later But in a mint condition .. Huawei launched its first smartwatch the

Sony Xperia 1 II - the Lazarus of Smartphones

Well, well, well... Look who's back on the Street ! He's tall ..he's strong..he's Loaded ! That's exactly what the Xperia 1 II is all about ! Sony can well be termed as the "Lazarus"  for coming back from the dead - quite literally. It was standing against all the odds with likes of Samsung, Apple, One Plus in Premium and Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Huawei in the Mid Segments, Sony had no where to land and with this particular model they have reaffirmed their faith in their Premium segment and its definitely Working ! I know the naming is weird (seriously who names their product "one" "two" ) Check out their official Video: Credits : Sony Youtube Channel Credits : NDTV Mind you , this is the first smartphone with a 21:9 4K HDR OLED 6.5" Display with 90 Hz Refresh Rate - let that sink in. Sony has used its experience in its Television Display tech and dropped it straight up on the Xperia 1 II. With the notch nicely hid
