Realme 5

Its quite a time that you all are familiar with the name “Realme”. Realme is now back with two new devices Realme 5 & 5 Pro. Lets discuss Realme 5 first.

he Realme 5 is a big upgrade over the Realme 3 across the board, including its processing power, cameras, and battery capacity — which the company hopes will set a new bar for what buyers can expect from a phone in this segment. Armed with an impressive resume of features, it’s time to see if the Realme 5 can deliver an equally impressive Android experience.


Realme 5 flaunts a 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with 720 x 1,520 pixels screen resolution and a pixel density of 258 PPI. The phone has a completely bezel-less design and a pop-up selfie camera which is becoming the latest trend.


The Realme 5 has a quad rear camera setup with 16MP, 8MP, 2MP and 2MP rear camera and 13MP front lens. The camera will have an f/1.8 aperture and a pixel size of 1.25-micron. The phone can capture amazing pictures with the help of inbuilt features and is a perfect option for photography lovers looking for a budget device.


The Realme 5 is the first phone to be announced in India with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC. As its name indicates, this processor sits between the Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 675. This SoC is built on an 11nm fabrication process, so it’s more power efficient than the Snapdragon 660 and it even uses the same Kryo 260 cores. The integrated GPU has been upgraded to the Adreno 610, which should enable better gaming performance.

The Realme 5 is available in three variants — 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage (Rs. 9,999); 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage (Rs. 10,999); and the one we have, which has 4GB RAM with 128GB of storage (Rs. 11,999). Other Realme 5 specifications include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, slots for two Nano-SIMs plus a microSD card of up to 256GB in capacity, support for four satellite navigation systems, USB-OTG, FM radio, and the usual suite of sensors.


The phone has a powerful 5000 mAh Li-ion battery which can easily last for a day even with heavy usage. It comes with Fast Charging technology which can juice up your phone in just a few minutes.

Overall Verdict

The Realme 5 is a big improvement over the Realme 3 and is a good deal for gamers as SD665 is more efficient. You may consider this if you don’t have any problem with the ColorOS. You might also consider the Realme 5 Pro. The other alternatives are Redmi Note 7 Pro and Mi A3
