I got to review the new realme 10 Pro 5G and been using it for a period of a month now. Let us deep dive into the review to find out if this is the smartphone for you.
The realme 10 Pro 5G is a very comfortable and lightweight smartphone. With flat edges and a matte-finish that doesn’t attract fingerprints, the device offers a premium look. The first thing you will probably notice when you put it in your hand is how light it is, which is mainly due to the polycarbonate frame and back body.
Additionally, this smartphone enables decent photography and good enough abilities that let you record precious moments thanks to its 108 MP ProLight Camera and 2MP depth sensor at the rear, and a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. Both the front and rear cameras can shoot videos at 1080p@30fps.
While the rest of the sensors are good, however the realme didn’t optimize them well. Honestly, realme should have added the Ultra-Wide lens and improved the Night Photography feature.
The realme 10 Pro 5G’s Snapdragon 695 5G Chipset makes it a power-efficient phone. Snapdragon 695 is a well-tested processor, so there is nothing much to talk about. It is a good processor for day-to-day usage but it’s not the best option for hardcore gaming. Meanwhile, it’s massive 8 GB + 8 GB Dynamic RAM design makes it simple to switch between apps, play casual games, and access numerous files. Using the unit as my daily driver, I faced no serious heating or lagging issues while doing the usual internet browsing or multitasking.
One of the first smartphones to ship with Android 13 out of the box is the realme 10 Pro 5G, which also has the company’s UI 4.0 on top of it. The updated UI has a clean appearance (but has ads), and some new functions, but nothing significant to set it apart from its predecessor.
Display is the realme 10 Pro+ 5G’s selling point, but the same can’t be said for the realme 10 Pro 5G. Yes, you can enjoy a large screen size with a significantly compact frame, thanks to the 6.72-inch screen and 93.76% screen-to-body ratio. Also, the screen brightness is kind of okay, the 680 nits will ensure that you will see every single text under the sunlight. Overall, the realme 10 Pro 5G has a good panel to watch movies or even play games but, it is not the best display.
The realme 9 Pro 5G’s display boasts a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate for smoother scrolling and swiping. With even 6 different refresh rates, your phone can also conserve battery power.
Speaking of battery, despite the smartphone’s lightweight and slim figure, the phone features a 5,000mAh battery and 33W SuperVOOC rapid charging is supported. Expect the battery to survive for more than a day, thanks to the Snapdragon 695’s power-saving capabilities. But for a heavy user just like me, doing scrolling through social media applications, playing my favorite casual games, making a dozen calls, and binge-watching for a couple of hours –be prepared to charge the gadget almost twice daily. Well, the actual battery life may really vary depending on the user.
Considering its budget range, the device has stereo speakers which are good, loud and clear, too. Also, realme has added secondary noise cancellation microphone and even Carrier Aggregation which helps a lot in calling. And yes, the phone also has a 3.5mm audio jack (but no radio). It’s surprising!
The realme has face-unlock security feature and has added the side-mounted fingerprint sensor which works fine without any problem.
The device also comes with 7 5G Bands, seamlessly keeping up with my day-to-day smartphone activities, may it be for productivity, or leisure.
The realme 10 Pro 5G is a great quality product with a variety of features. Despite some limitations, this smartphone has an impressive appearance, great battery life, decent performance, and even stability. Users can complete their everyday tasks simultaneously, thanks to the device’s large RAM capacity, charging efficiency, and smooth display.
