Realme X7 Pro was recently launched in India after months from the first release in China. Despite several months passed, it is still one of the most impressive flagship killers out there. But at the end of the last year, even OPPO decided to release an amazing flagship killer: the Reno5 Pro 5G. Unlike the Reno4 Pro, the new handset is not a mid-ranger but it comes with a high-end chipset, one of the best by MediaTek. Is it better to spend a bit more and grab a unit of the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G or Realme X7 Pro is a smarter purchase? This comparison will clear your ideas in regards.

If you prefer having the most beautiful and gorgeous phone, then you should go for the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G without thinking twice. First of all, it has a display with curved edges making it way more elegant. Further, it is a thinner and lighter device. Even the build quality is better: the phone is a glass sandwich protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and it has an aluminum frame. Even the screen-to-body ratio is higher compared to the Realme X7 Pro. The latter still comes with a good design and build quality, but the Reno5 Pro has flagship-like aesthetics which can be considered objectively superior.
Do you need the best display in terms of image quality or for gaming? If you are a gamer, then you may prefer the Realme X7 Pro due to its higher 120 Hz refresh rate. But for all the other activities, the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is actually better: unlike the Realme X7 Pro, it features the HDR10+ certification and it even comes with a higher peak brightness (up to 1100 nits just like expensive flagships). Both the handsets come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a punch-hole design.
Specs & Software
OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G and Realme X7 Pro are powered by the same flagship-class chipset: the Dimensity 1000+ by MediaTek. But there is a difference when it comes to the memory configurations. The OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G packs up to 12 GB of RAM, while you can get a max of 8 GB RAM with the Realme X7 Pro. Even when it comes to the software there is an important difference: Realme X7 Pro is still based on Android 10, while OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G ships with Android 11 out of the box.
If we talk about the camera setup, OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G and Realme X7 Pro are more or less at the same level, but the OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G is slightly better. It has a brighter focal aperture for both the main rear camera and the front camera, which should allow for better photo quality, especially in low light conditions. For the rest, they have the same secondary sensors including an 8 MP ultrawide lens and a pair of 2 MP sensors for macros and depth.
The Realme X7 Pro is a slightly better battery phone because it has a slightly bigger battery: its capacity is 4500 mAh against the 4350 mAh offered by the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G. Both feature 65W fast charging (SuperVOOC and Dart, different names for the same technology), but the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is faster to reach 100 percent because of its smaller battery. According to Realme, the X7 Pro needs about 35 minutes to go from 0 to 100 percent of the battery charge. However, you should note that OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G ships with Android 11 out of the box which provides further battery optimizations which could help you in a few scenarios.
You can grab a unit of the Realme X7 Pro in India for Rs. 29,999 / $415 (for the configuration with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage), while you need Rs. 35,990 / $497 to get an OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G (for the 8/128 GB configuration). We believe there is no doubt about the fact that OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G is a better device: it provides a better display quality, cameras, and design. But you can save money by choosing the X7 Pro and, despite that, you do not have to face big compromises.
