Level up your smartphone photography game in style with the new realme 7i

For the regular readers of my blog, you know I’m not much of a techie, but lately as I have been given the opportunity to try out more smartphones, I’ve been learning a lot and becoming more aware of the differences and nuances of each smartphone.


Because lets face it, all smartphones look good on paper, but once you actually get to use it for quite some time, you realize that the specs aren’t the only details that matter. 


I’m actually proud of myself, as I can now distinguish the differences in screen resolution, build quality, speed and performance and of course the photos taken by its cameras.


For the last few weeks, the phone I’ve been using is the realme 7i. And for those of you who love taking photos, want to try out vlogging or want to level up your IG game, the realme 7i presents a very good option.


As a blogger, we have to take lots and lots of photos we could post on our blogs, Instagram Pinterest  and Facebook page.  It may seem simple, but believe me, it takes a lot of time and practice to edit think of captions before finally deciding which photos to post. Lets just say for every photo I post, I have to take more than 20 photos first. 



It usually takes an hour for me to edit a photo in my Instagram and FB page, just because I couldnt decide on a filter.  Sometimes I’m in the mood for something that is vibrant, sometimes I want some pastel shades, and most of the time I end up undecided because I’m still not satisfied with the final outcome-- especially  when I take photos of urban landscapes and night shots. 


Well it takes me half the time,  thanks to the realme 7i. 


During our realme7i briefing among the key features they talked about were the 3 new filters, cyberpunk, flamingo and modern gold

Modern Gold


Now, I rarely ever use the preset camera filters of the phone, instead relying on third party apps such as SNOW and Snapseed most of the time. But when my partner posted a photo of our last trip to megamall, I asked him what app he used, and he told me it was just the cyberpunk filter of the realme 7i.


So I tried it once, and now i have problems turning it off, because its so much fun to use. It gives of this cool futuristic vibe and when you take photos of buildings and lights its just so trippy, or whatever word millennials use to describe something really cool. 


ON the other hand Modern Gold as its name indicates adds strong golden accents while Flamingo puts vibrant red everywhere and Cyberpunk is more on the pinkish side. The good news is you can also use these filters  in daytime, that is if you want to have a burst of colors to your images. Like for instance, you can use it in plants, trees or leaves to make your photos stand out. They're so cool you could use these filters anytime of the day.

Good thing is these filters are live, you can actually choose any of the filters while taking a picture. 


Just like the realme 6i, what I love about 7i is its design. I got the Polar blue mirror display,  I love that its sleek and smooth with its glossy rear panel. It looks classy. It has a 64-megapixel main camera, 8 megapixel for ultra wide and 2-megapixel sensors. 


realme 7i boasts a 5,000mAh massive battery and 18W fast charge technology. I watched 4-hour episodes of Emily in Paris Netflix series, post in my Instagram stories, FB page, and do my online shopping and it still has its battery the next day.
