Realme 5 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

You're not short of options if you're seeking a £150 (ish) phone, but a certain Chinese brand has begun to flex its budget phone muscles with the Realme 5.

Strong battery life;Solid performance;Decent specs for the price

720p display;Weighty handset;ColorOS is way too busy

Realme 5 review: A new face among the affordable crowd

 

A brand found under the Oppo umbrella, is the Realme 5 a successful affordable phone, or does it make a few too many mistakes? Here's our review...

Brilliant battery life lasts for ages ; Large screen with little bezel interruption ; Ample processing power for tasks and light games alike ; 128GB storage and microSD expansion

Slow Wi-Fi for downloads ; Micro-USB used for charging ; Quad camera a massive oversell - wide-angle doesn't work for stills ; ColorOS software will divide opinion

Exceptional battery life, a large screen and small price are all appealing factors about the Realme 5. Even if you don't know the brand name, if you're after a budget handset and can accept the low-resolution, camera oversell, and Micro-USB charging,...

Realme 5 - Review Part 1. The Unboxing. - Coolsmartphone

 

I've been wanting to take a look at the Realme 5 Pro since getting a hands-on with it last October. That phone is available to buy for €199, which works

Over the next couple of days I’ll be adding a look at the user interface and the images from the camera, but right now, here’s my unboxing….

RealMe 5 (2019) review

 

Even at the best of times, it feels like the RealMe 5 is making do with limited resources and while I was sometimes pleasantly surprised by how it fared, it rarely excited or delighted me in the way that other budget phones this year have.

Cheap ; Big battery

Iffy performance ; Inconsistent camera

Review: realme XT and realme 5 Pro are standout value

 

Forgive the joint review of the realme XT and realme 5 Pro – they are brothers from the same mother. For the most part, the only significant difference is

OPPO quality at realme online pricing;XT: 64MP camera/AMOLED is class-leading;5 Pro: 48MP camera/IPS is class-leading;8/128/microSD is class-leading

Australians may be hesitant to adopt a purely online model

Realme 5 review: Quad camera on a budget, but how does it perform?

 

Realme 5 review: The highlight of Realme 5 is quad-camera setup at the back in the under Rs 10,000 price range. The phone has also been upgraded to pack a big 5,000mAh battery from 4,230mAh in Realme 3 and a Snapdragon 665 processor. But how does the...
