FIRST LOOK

First Look: realme 7 – quality 5G phone $499

Published

on

There’s a competitive market building for sub $500 5G smartphones in Australia.

The realme 7 5G will cost $499 and is available for pre-order today – 4th of February 2021 – on sale on 11th February.

It comes in two colours – Mist Blue or Flash Silver.

So what do you get for that price?

  • 5G

  • 120hz 6.5 inch display

  • 30W dart charger

  • 5000mAh battery

  • And AI Quadcamera – including a 48MP Primary camera

  • 16MP Selfie Camera

I’ll look deeper into the camera capabilities later in my full review but this is one of the better setups for $500.

The 30W Dart charger, using low-voltage / high-current solution gets that big 5000mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 65 minutes, or 60% in 30 minutes.

The phone is pretty snappy. This section of the market often suffers but I can confidently say the processor is up to task.

Some other key things I like:

  • Headphone Jack 

  • Fingerprint reader on the side.

  • 5G Dual SIM.

  • Or expandable storage .. up to 256GB… the phone comes with 128GB.

If you’re one of the first 4000 to order you get a bonus pair of realme Buds worth $79.

Realme is a real success story. Created less than 3 years ago and in Australia since only 2019.

The branding is bold.

No one is going mistake it with another Android phone.

Accessories include the realme buds Air Pro for $199 and realme Watch S for $169.

Stay tuned for review videos on the accessories and an in-depth review on realme 7 5G soon.
