For me, who seldom takes photos and games A LOT, realme x7 max is the ultimate choice. The Dimensity 1200 never fails to give 60 fps at ultra graphics on many games (like PUBG: New State, BGMI, COD mobile, Free Fire, Free Fire MAX, Naruto: Slugfest, Shadow Fight 3, Shadow Fight Arena, Asphalt 9, and Real Racing 3). You will need to reduce shadows in MARVEL:- Future revolution to medium (from the advanced graphics settings) to get a constant 60 though. otherwise, it might get down to around 47 at times. [NOTE:- Performance mode was NOT enabled in these 'benchmarks', enabling it will give it a nice boost at the sacrifice of battery life, perhaps] I got the 12 GB ram version, and in an idle state, around 7 GB RAM is free (i got some apps running in the background, mind). the 120Hz screen seems very fluid to touch, piled with the 360Hz touch response rate, it's super responsive. Superdart is faaaaaast. Had some fun recording a woodpecker (the bird, not the gun) in slo-mo, was fun, the camera is crisp enough for pics too, no need for four lenses. The 4500 mAh battery lasts easily for a day if you don't game through the day, while the duration of a comparatively large battery seems small, it's mostly due to the higher refresh rate, switching it to 60 Hz via settings will definitely increase it's life. 5G isn't in India yet, so can't say anything about that, however, 4G (Airtel) is good enough for okay to moderate (80-170 ms) ping in most Battle Royale. 256GB of storage is more than enough for storing all the things you want.
