Although both the smartphones have the same price range, the specifications do matter the most to the customers. But now focusing on the wide differences, Realme 5 Pro might be a better catch for the customers as it has an advanced chipset, powered by more RAM, and has double the storage of Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Realme hosting the AMOLED display will have better viewing angles than the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The battery plays a major role in any smartphone as multiple features need a lot of juice and Realme provides more juice than Redmi with better battery capacity and faster charging.
