Under the hood, the OPPO F19 Pro and Realme X7 are powered by the MediaTek Helio P95 and MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipsets, respectively. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max gets the Snapdragon 732G. This gives the Realme X7 a significant advantage over its rivals as it is the only 5G-ready handset of the lot. The Helio P95 is a dated chipset based on an older 12nm process. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G, on the other hand, does manage to keep up with the MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC but it lacks 5G connectivity.

All three smartphones come with an FHD+ AMOLED display. The OPPO F19 Pro and Realme X7 feature a 6.4-inch screen, while the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a slightly larger 6.6-inch screen. However, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max display has a refresh rate of 120Hz, while the other two are set at 60Hz.

The Realme X7 and OPPO F19 Pro both feature 4,310mAh batteries that support 50W and 30W speeds, respectively. One could argue that the Realme X7 wins this segment as it supports faster charging speeds. It is also the only phone that comes with a 65W fast charger in the box.
