The new Narzo 30 series recently hitten the Indian shelves with three variants: the most powerful of them is the Narzo 30 Pro 5G, which is also the only 5G phone from the series. It belongs to the midrange segment and offers a very high value for money, but is it actually the highest? In order to understand this, we decided to compare it to two other amazing mid-rangers, one of which is equipped with 5G connectivity: the POCO X3 by Xiaomi and the Realme X7, both available in the Indian market.

If you mind having a beautiful phone with an attractive design, go for the Realme X7. You should go for it because it is actually thinner, lighter, and more compact than Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and POCO X3. The aesthetics are very similar to the Realme Narzo 30 Pro but given that the Narzo is thicker and bigger, it is also less attractive. The POCO X3 does not come with an amazing design, but it offers a great build quality. Its frame is made of aluminum and the phone has the IP53 certification which makes it dust resistant and splash resistant. Further, its front glass is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
Despite it comes with a standard refresh rate, the best display belongs to the Realme X7 for a simple reason: it has an AMOLED panel. AMOLED displays are able to show more brilliant colors and deeper blacks. The phone is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader allowing for a more comfortable unlock. The Realme Narzo 30 Pro has a 120 Hz display just like the POCO X3, but a higher refresh rate does not stand for better image quality. You can get a smoother viewing experience, but the quality of these IPS displays is actually lower if you compare them to the Realme X7.
Specs & Software
The POCO X3 NFC is inferior when it comes to the hardware department because its chipset, the Snapdragon 732G, is actually less powerful than the Mediatek Dimensity 800U found on the Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and the Realme X7. But the most important difference between the two chipsets is 5G: with the Snapdragon 732G, you do not get 5G connectivity, while you do with the Dimensity 800U. All the phones are based on Android 10 and run a highly-customized user interface. Further, they all pack up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage.
On the paper, the Realme X7 looks like the device with the best camera setup. On the rear side, it has a 64 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor, and a pair of 2 MP sensors for macros and depth. Last but not least, a great 32 MP selfie snapper.
The POCO X3 has the biggest battery and, given that the components are similar to the Realme Narzo 30 Pro in terms of energy consumption, it should provide a longer battery life. The Realme X7 has a smaller 4300 mAh battery, but it charges faster with its 65W fast charging technology.
Realme Narzo 30 Pro is priced Rs. 18,799 / $257, POCO X3 costs Rs. 16,999 / $232, and Realme X7 starts from Rs. 19,999 / $273. Given that it does not support 5G, the POCO X3 is not the smartest choice for everyone. The Realme X7 is for those who love the camera and display quality, while Realme Narzo 30 Pro provides a longer battery life. Overall, the Realme X7 is more interesting (but also costlier) and it wins the comparison.
