The device is quite lightweight and comfortable to hold in one hand. It features a matte textured finish, which offers a more solid grip on the phone, even with slightly greasy or wet hands. The glossy stripe tends to retain smudges and fingerprints.
Realme finally decided to remove the large and flashy “Dare to Leap” logo. But, it is not completely gone and you will now see it in a smaller version on the lower side of the phone. The logo is not as prominent, but when the light hits the rear panel from different angles, it somewhat gleams. You will have to use a case if you want a neat rear panel with no logo.
Realme is offering the phone in either black or silver variants. There is a Milky Way colour as well, which you can consider if you want a more flashy look. Those who prefer wired earphones will be happy to know that the headphone jack is there at the bottom as it was missing on the X7 Pro model. The overall feel of the phone is just fine and not very premium. But, the addition of the IPX4 rating is a welcome improvement.
The Realme X7 Max is powered by MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1200 processor. The smartphone can handle every task with ease; multitasking is a breeze and there were no signs of stutters or slow performance.
Games such as Call of Duty, Asphalt 9, and Genshin Impact, among others. During my usage, I didn’t encounter any frame drop or laggy performance. The device’s panel supports 120Hz and 360Hz touch sampling rate. This did make the gameplay feel very smooth.
The battery of the Realme X7 Max lasted one day, but results may vary depending on your usage pattern. A usage consisting of social networking, a few hours of YouTube, and an hour or so of gaming can run without any hinderance. The fact that Realme ships a 50W charger in the box as you will rarely get it with other mid-range phones is great. The fast charger can top up the phone’s battery in about 45 minutes. The X7 Max has a 4,500mAh battery.
