So which device would be your choice when it comes to the screen? You decide.
On the software front, both phones come with Android 9.0 Pie. From indication, the company revealed that the Realme 3 Pro would be able to upgrade to the latest Android 10 OS. If that is the case, then the Realme 3 Pro might have some more offerings for users when it comes to the operating system.
Away from the OS, the Realme 3 Pro comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, and a faster Adreno 616 GPU, plus coming in two variants of 4GB and 6GB, so you get to enjoy speed and the very best of gaming and performances as a whole.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with two powerful Kryo 460 Gold cores that are clocked at 2.0GHz and six Kryo 460 Silver cores at 1.7GHz, which makes it a device that doesn’t only offer you great performance, it’s also a very power-efficient option.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro is a device that offers the very best when it comes to performances, and it’s one of the best in this range when it comes to gaming.
The battery is another subject that everyone is concerned about, and if a device seems to come packed with a lot of power, but there isn’t a quality battery to go along, everything is as good as useless. Our Realme 3 Pro vs Redmi Note 7 Pro comparison examined the battery on both phones, and here is our take.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a powerful 4000mAh battery, and it seems it’s in keeping with a threshold that the company has managed to have in the last few years. The battery seems to be weighty, and a contributing factor to the weight of the phone. We were able to squeeze around a day’s worth of work out of the battery on constant use, and that is a pass for me, at this battery capacity.
Our battery test included playing PUBG Mobile and other high-graphic games, watching YouTube videos, and streaming music. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro also comes with the Quick Charge 4.0 feature and an 18W charging.
The Realme 3 Pro comes with a 4045mAh battery capacity, which is a little higher than the Redmi Note 7 Pro numerically, but we can’t conclude yet if it beats it when it comes to actual performance. The Realme 3 Pro lasted for close to 16hrs on constant use, extensive high graphics gaming, movies, and music streaming. The Realme 3 Pro comes with the VOOC Fast Charging feature, so we noticed the battery charges to 50 percent in just a little over 40 minutes, and 100 percent in 1 hour 25 minutes.
We can’t do a Realme 3 Pro vs Redmi Note 7 Pro comparison without making a mention of the camera, I mean, that’s the one reason why many of us are dying to get our hands on these smartphones.
The Realme 3 Pro comes with a dual-camera of 16MP + 5MP on the rear. You get an aperture of f/1.7 and great shots in both daylight and lowlight conditions. The Realme 3 Pro also comes with AI recognition, a Chroma Boost feature that helps to improve the color of the saturation and contrast, making them more endearing. The Realme 3 Pro also sports an UltraHD feature, which is a combination of four 16MP images to create one large-format 64MP picture quality, and then Nightscape and a couple of other features that are meant to challenge smartphones coming with the 48MP lenses without having to break our pocket.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro sports a 48MP camera on the rear and a 5MP depth sensor. A dual-camera like the Realme 3 Pro. The smartphone also wears a 13MP camera on the front, for selfies, a top-quality Sony IMX586 sensor. The Redmi Note 7 Pro’s 12MP pictures are gotten by combining four pixels into one, creating a 1.6um superpixel, which means you’d be getting more depth and cover more area per shot.
