No 3.5mm Audio Jack

I know, most of the people will say, I have TWS earphone, so I don’t see a huge problem here but I’m talking about those people who don’t want to spend 2k or 5k on TWS earbuds. For those, people, this is a huge letdown.

That said, if you can live without 3.5mm Audio Jack then there is no point talking about audio jack but if you want to use wired earphones then you can buy Type-C to 3.5mm dongle or just go with Mi 10i 5G or any other phone that has Audio Jack.

No SD Card Slot

These days, most of the budget smartphone comes with dedicated SD card slot or option to use SD card but RealMe has just cut out SD card slot. This means you can only use TWO SIM cards.

60Hz Refresh Rate

Now, it looks like RealMe is moving to AMOLED display but they just cut down high refresh rate display. RealMe X7 comes with 60Hz AMOLED display which I don’t have any problem with but for those who want to use 120Hz, this is deal-breaker.

There is an option, LCD with 120Hz or AMOLED with 60Hz. Here RealMe used AMOLED with 60Hz, now, I can talk as much as you want about these two options but I won’t. So you decide, what you want on your next smartphone, LCD or AMOLED.

Apart from those missing stuff, I didn’t see any other problem with cameras, display, battery life or about anything else. RealMe has also, enabled camera2api, so you can use Gcam on RealMe X7 without any issue.


Of course, I will say more about RealMe X7 in full review but till then, if you want to buy a new budget smartphone then you can considering buying RealMe X7 as this phone has almost everything that you’re looking for.

In short, RealMe X7 is good smartphone and it’s not overpriced like RealMe X7 Pro. Also, the phone has support for Wide vide L1 that means you can stream FHD+ content on Netflix and Prime video.
