Glass vs Plastic

There’s an interesting difference when it comes to design quality. Realme X has a gorgeous fullscreen display, however, the build is made out of polycarbonate material. As for Redmi Note 7 Pro, it does sport a notch but the back is made out of glass material, thus providing a more premium feel in the hand.

Another notable difference is the fingerprint scanner — much faster performance is found on the Note 7 Pro while an advanced but slightly less reliable on the X (unless you’re OnePlus 7 Pro).

For those who want closer to Samsung-like display quality, X can deliver that with its AMOLED panel. Just don’t expect it to be on par, of course.

Realme X Dominates Redmi Note 7 Pro the Spec Sheet

As for chipsets, X has a more efficient and updated Snapdragon 710. So, it should provide better performance than the older Snapdragon 675 of Note 7 Pro. But if you want expandable storage, you can only find that from the Redmi device.

On paper, camera specs are nearly identical. Both devices sport 48MP + 5MP main sensors. But X edges out the Note 7 Pro by a hair due to a wider field-of-view and wider f1.7 aperture for better low-light photos. Its advantage continues to the selfie camera — thanks to a slightly larger 16MP wide sensor.

Both devices use USB Type-C ports, so that’s a good thing. But there’s a larger 4000mAh battery on the Note 7 Pro with 18W Quick Charge 4.0.

Good Phones at Different Price Points

Redmi Note 7 Pro’s highest variant (4GB/128GB) costs only P11,490. While the base model of Realme X could start at P14,990 (4GB/64GB) and go up to P16,990 (6GB/128GB).

The Redmi device continues to be a killer budget phone at its price range. But should you wish to have a phone with the better and latest features, Realme X is sitting at a good price point.
