Conclusion: Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro (6 GB) vs Realme 3 Pro (6/128 GB)

There is no doubt that both the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro (6/128 GB) and the Realme 3 Pro (6/128 GB) are excellent smartphones and both the phones come with excellent performance, rear camera, display and big battery and are very very close to each other in these departments so, let’s not talk about it. The main differentiating factors in the two smartphones are the build quality, front camera and fast charging. While the Redmi Note 7 Pro has a much better build and premium feel with its glass back, the Realme 3 Pro is a clear winner in terms of the front camera and has amazing 20W fast charging, which is unmatched in this price range.

But the differences don’t end here, the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a USB Type-C port and Infrared sensor whereas, the Realme 3 Pro lacks both. In terms of software, Xiaomi’s MIUI is infamous for ads in the UI, Realme’s ColorOS still needs more polishing so, despite the ads more points go in Redmi Note 7 Pro’s favour. Finally, let’s cut it short by seeing both the phones as a package, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a clear winner and a better smartphone out of the two and unless you are more inclined towards selfies or fast charging, you should go with the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
