I believe that the performance can be good if the collaboration between the software and the hardware unit is strong. So let us see what is under the hood of these two phones and what runs them so smoothly.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro has a chipset of Qualcomm which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675. This 11 Nano meter Octa Core processor is clocked at 2.0 GHz for the first 2 Cores as Kryo 460 Gold and the other 6 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz Kryo 460 Silver. The GPU is Adreno 612. The RAM comes in two variants; 4 GB and 6 GB. And the internal storage comes in 2 Variants; 64 GB and 128 GB. So the phone comes in 3 combinations; 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, 6 GB and 64 GB and 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
The Realme 3 Pro runs with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. This 10 Nano meter chipset is slightly faster which is clocked at 2.2 GHz Kryo 360 Gold on the first 2 cores and 1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver on the remaining 6 cores. The GPU is Adreno 616.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro runs with an Android version of Android 9 which is commonly known as Pie. But it is upgradable to Android version 11. The UI is the all time choice of Xiaomi’s in house UI the MIUI. In this particular phone, Xiaomi has powered with the latest MIUI 11.
The Realme 3 Pro is also the proud runner of Android 9.0 Pie. However, it is upgradable up to Android Version 10. The UI which is used in this particular smartphone is the famous Color OS. The Color OS 6 runs pretty smoothly and has a better app management facilities than the MIUI. But there is not much of a difference when you use the phone simultaneously.
Yet another hiccup for me as the phones are again pretty close as far as the performance is concerned. But the Xiaomi has a slightly (0.2 GHz Slower) less powerful chipset than Realme. But on the other hand, Xiaomi can be upgraded up to Android Version 11 which is a bonus point for Xiaomi.
Judging by the facts and aspects, I have come to the decision that both the phones are equal in performance and heavy multitasking. So a point will be shared each.
So as we move on. The score is still on the same position. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro 3 points and Realme 3 Pro also 3 points. Now let’s move on to an exciting segment which is the camera section.
