realme 5: Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
A stylish diamond-cut pattern and water splash-resistant design. The phone performs fast and the battery lasts more than a day, thanks to 5000mAh capacity. The camera setup on the rear. There's 4K video recording on this phone, a rare feature in this price segment. Android 10 update for the phone will appear sometime in the year 2020. There's also a triple card slot (microSD + nano SIM + nano SIM).
The screen looks low-res and UI needs improvements. The 2MP macro camera is kind of useless. No USB Type-C port and only 10W fast charging.
Realme 5 brings a quad-camera setup under the Rs 10,000 price segment, a first in its category. It also has a big screen, a fast processor, an extremely long battery life (thanks to a 5000mAh battery), and a planned upgrade to Android 10. It has an attractive design as well as a water splash-resistant design. However, we can't help but notice is lower than required screen resolution and the good old microUSB port is still lingering around.
