Realme 5 Specifications, Price, and Release Date

Realme 5 Summary

Realme has had a big impact on the Indian smartphone market. The Realme 5 Pro is both stylish and reasonably priced. The devices rear sports a geometric metallic pattern. This phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 and comes in three different RAM and storage variants. There is a 6.3-inch full-HD+ screen and a 4035mAh battery with VOOC quick charging. Realme makes use of the ColorOS Android skin from Oppo, a sister company.

This skin includes a variety of features and modifications, as well as a selection of preloaded apps. Performance varies depending on the model, although it is normally adequate. The 48-megapixel primary back camera delivers high-quality photographs during the day, but not at night. A 2-megapixel macro lens, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a depth sensor are included. The most advanced model we tested comes with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. App and game performance is adequate, and the phone does not overheat.

The Realme 5 is the first smartphone with four cameras on the back. In addition to the primary camera and depth sensor, Realme also included handy wide-angle and macro lenses. Additionally, the 13-megapixel selfie camera offers electronic video stabilization. The cameras function well overall in ideal lighting, but they struggle to capture decent detail in dim lighting. The 5000mAh battery of the Realme 5 comfortably lasts a day and a half or even longer on a single charge. Fast charging is not supported, which is unfortunate. Overall, the Realme 5 base model is good (3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage).
