Redmi Note 10 Pro Max vs. RealMe X7 Camera Comparison

Xiaomi last week announced an update to its most popular smartphone lineup in India, which comes in the form of the Redmi Note 10 series. Apart from adding many features and enhancing the specs, Xiaomi has focused a lot on the camera performance of its devices. Top-end model in the series, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, Actually has a 108MP camera, making it the first phone in the segment to offer a high-resolution sensor.

Starting at Rs 18,999, the Note 10 Pro will be square against the Max (pictured above) Realme X7 (Review) It has a 64MP primary sensor. Both devices have multiple sensors in their camera range, while the Note 10 Pro Max has four offers to compete with the Realme X7 triple camera setup. In this comparison let’s see how the two phones in the camera segment interact with each other and how well they fix different lighting conditions.

Realme X7 Camera Review

During the day

The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max packs in a new 108MP Samsung Isocel HM2 sensor that uses nine-in-one pixel binning to combine 0.7μm pixels into a larger 2.1μm pixel. The RealMe X7, on the other hand, features the popular Samsung Isocell GW2 sensor, which uses quad-pixel binning and has a smaller 1.4μm sensor size. Compared to the slightly contrasting look on the Realmy X7, in normal mode, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max keeps the colors more natural. The dynamic range is constant throughout both shots, but the conditions are not too bright to bring out the color of the sky.

Winner: Redmi Note 10 Pro Max


Both devices have 8MP ultra-wide shooters that are slightly different in their field-view. The Note 10 Pro Max pulls at 118-degrees, while the RealMe X7 has a bit of a shadow at 119-degrees. To the human eye, this change is more or less negligible. As can be clearly seen on the grass at the bottom of the frame, the Redmi Realm does not make the details as smooth as the X7. The dynamic range on the Redmi phone is also a bit better, but I like the color temperature of the RealMe X7, which more accurately describes cloudy weather. Overall, I still give this round to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

Winner: Redmi Note 10 Pro Max

2x zoom

An important difference in the camera layout of the two devices is that the 5MP macro shooter of the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max also doubles as a 2x telephoto lens, relying on the realm X7 digital zoom. Therefore, it basically cuts into the primary sensor shot so that it loses subsequent quality. As a result, the X7’s picture details are smooth (like the pillars in a hut) and there is nothing to write home about, even the dynamic range, and the colors are a little dull. It’s a close call, but overall, it looks like Redmi has stepped forward here.

Winner: Redmi Note 10 Pro Max


With a higher resolution sensor, the Redmi packs in a better macro shooter and is 2cm closer to the subject at 4cm compared to the Realme X7. The output of the latter looks bright, but the sharp focus on real-to-life colors and pollen grains on the flower becomes the winner as captured by the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

Winner: Redmi Note 10 Pro Max


Since the RealMe X7, like the RealMe Note 10 Pro Max, does not have a dedicated depth sensor, the front end must rely on computational photography to distinguish it from the background. In that sense, the X7 actually does a good job. The Note 10 Pro Max, to its credit, shows a neat and smooth opacity, but makes the colors a little more in the background. I call it a tie.

Winner: Tie

Full resolution shot

Since both Redmi and RealMe phones have different resolution primary sensors, this can make a difference in the final quality of the shot. In the case of the Note 10 Pro Max, the maximum resolution is 108 MP while in the RealMe X7 you get a 64 MP shot. It is immediately clear that Realme prefers more exposure to its shots, which comes at a cost of dynamic range and the colors are more saturated. This is in stark contrast to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, which keeps the shot low to get more detail around the leaves and does not blow up the sky. The colors have a more realistic tone and you can cut even more with the shot. The Redmi Note 10 Pro is hands-on.

Winner: Redmi Note 10 Pro Max

Low light

Under normal low-light conditions with the help of nearby street lights, both phones bring good details. I wrote about the low-light capabilities on the device in my RealMe X7 review. However, since then the software update seems to have solved many problems. However, there is green on the whole photo, which looks a little odd. The focus is sharply on objects in the pool of light directly from the street lights, but the building still remains in the dark. Redmi actually does a good job of dimming the lights, but the noise is mostly visible in the night sky above. The details on the building are delicate here but more properly exposed. Both phones score different angles of photography here and also show some issues, so this is a tie for me too.

Winner: Tie

Night mode

Dedicated night mode comes to the rescue, but is only effective when the light is very low. In the photo above, there is considerable external lighting in the scene. The green color in the shot of the RealMe X7 is somewhat reduced and the color temperatures are higher according to real-life conditions. The details looked better with better reflections visible in the water gutter in the alley and the colors were also more accurately indicated. Exposure is still a minor issue with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and the color scheme is minimal. However, the phone was able to learn more detail than the real X7. It also looks like a tie.

Winner: Tie


Both devices have 16MP selfie shooters that work on their own. I personally like the dynamic range of the Note 10 Pro Max along with the representation of skin tones. However, the colors in the sky look better on the RealMe X7. Again, this seems to be one phone scoring high in some aspects, rival scoring high in others. Therefore, the tie means I will fix.

Winner: Tie

Final judgment

It is clear from Get-Go that the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max will eventually be the winner in this competition. The new ISOCELL HM2 sensor with high resolution and large sensor size is a recipe for great photos combined with improved computational photography. That being said, the RealMe X7 is not too bad, especially in low-light conditions, and it is clear how much RealMe has improved its night photography algorithms in recent times. Overall, the phone won five of the nine scenes with the Redmi Note 10 Pro for a better camera experience. However, I’m very excited that RealMe is going to introduce its new RealMe 8 series, expecting at least one phone to have a 108MP IsoSel HM2 sensor.
