Looks like the Realme 3 Pro dominates the comparison over the Redmi Note 7 when it comes to the advantages it can offer. For one, it has a newer and more powerful chipset. We haven’t benchmarked the unit itself, but if we look at the results of the R17 Pro which also sport the Snapdragon 710, it scored higher than the Redmi Note 7.

OPPO R17 Pro (SD710) Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (SD660)
AnTuTu 167110 141733
3D Mark 1,831 (SSE – OpenGL ES 3.1) 1,334 (SSE – OpenGL ES 3.1)
1,269 (SSE – Vulkan)
PC Mark 8,598 (Work 2.0) 6,166 (Work 2.0)
Geekbench 1,846 (Single-Core) 1,643 (Single-Core)
5,980 (Multi-Core) 5,385 (Multi-Core)
7,251 (RenderScript) 5,420 (RenderScript)

The Realme 3 Pro also wins when it comes to RAM capacity and storage expandability for having up to 6GB of RAM (the Redmi Note 7 maxes at 4GB) and a dedicated microSD card slot which is a big advantage to those who don’t like sacrificing the second SIM card slot. However, the Redmi Note 7 has three configurations to cater to consumers with varying budgets.

When it comes to the cameras, the Redmi Note 7 has the upper hand in terms of main camera resolution. But for selfies, the Realme 3 Pro has a higher front camera resolution. The number of pixels only tell half of the story so we can only tell which device can produce the best photos once we have both units on hand.

The Redmi Note 7 again has the advantage when it comes to other features like the IR blaster, which is a feature commonly found in Xiaomi devices, but really handy as you can control appliances at home with it. It also has a USB Type-C port which is more convenient compared to micro USB.

As for the battery, the two are close but the Realme 3 Pro has a slightly larger battery capacity, but we’ll know which device can provide a longer battery life once we have the Realme 3 Pro for review.

The Redmi Note 7 is already available in the Philippines and has the following price tags:
• 3GB + 32GB – PHP 7,990
• 4GB + 64GB – PHP 9,990
• 4GB + 128GB – PHP 11,490

The Realme 3 Pro, on the other hand, is yet to arrive in the country and has the following Indian price tags:
• 4GB + 64GB – RS 13,999 (~PHP 10,439)
• 6GB + 128GB – RS 16,999 (~PHP 12,676)
