With the funding smartphone warfare constantly escalating, the company would like to interrupt the market once more with its new Realme 5 series and Realme is making the jump from dual to quad cameras onto the backs of its phones, over the board.
The Realme 5 is still a big upgrade within the Realme 3 across the board, for example its processing power, cameras, and battery capacity — that the company hopes will set a new bar for what buyers could expect from the phone inside this segment. Equipped with an impressive resume of features, it is the right time to determine whether that the Realme 5 could deliver an equally striking Android experience.
Realme has updated its design language a little using the Realme 5. The telephone uses a polycarbonate body with a laminated plastic spine, however it’s taller than the Realme 3 and features a larger display. The design of the diamond pattern on the trunk was upgraded to a more crystalline layout, which seems to be neat and helps the device stick out. The Crystal Blue finish that we now have is very impressive, but if you’re searching for subtlety, the Crystal Purple option is a better pick. Additionally, little scuffs from everyday use are likely to be less visible on the purple variant than they will be available on the blue Realme 5.
The magnitude of this phone does make one-handed use quite cumbersome, and even with large hands, we struggled to tap anywhere close to the top of the display. Thankfully, ColorOS delivers a one-handed manner to help handle this issue. The Realme 5 is a bit thick also, at nearly 200g. Button placement and tactile feedback of the amount and power buttons are both good and at the bottom, we have the speaker, headphone socket, and also a Micro-USB charging port. The top notch is slightly smaller on the Realme 5, even though it’s maybe not readily evident at first glance. The display also has a pre-applied screen protector, which got annoying for all of us pretty quickly however, your mileage will likely vary. We found the brightness to be more than adequate, and also colours had good saturation. The sharpness of text and icons isn’t the very best but this is barely noticeable if you use this phone side by side using the one with a FullHD (or more ) display )
The Realme 5 might be the first mobile to be announced in India with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC. This SoC is constructed within an 11nm fabrication process, so it’s more power efficient than the Snapdragon 660 and it even uses the same Kryo 260 cores. The incorporated GPU was updated to the Adreno 610, which should enable better gaming functionality. Other Realme 5 specifications consist of dualband Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, slots for just two Nano-SIMs plus a microSD card of up to 256GB in capacity, service for four satellite navigation systems, USB-OTG, FM radio, and also the standard suite of sensors.
Despite heavy day to day activities, it is possible to get the Realme 5’s battery life to easily last beyond per day of frequent usage. During our inspection, with light to moderate use, we were able to manage not quite two weeks of usage per charge.Read More
