Realme 5i: Pros & Cons

7.8
out of 10
MSP Score
  • Pros
  • Fast performance for price, thanks to Snapdragon 665 SoC
  • 12MP main camera has an excellent image quality; 8MP ultrawide camera on board as well
  • Massive, 5000mAhbattery
  • Cons
  • Display looks pixelated due to HD+ resolution
  • Mediocre front camera performance
  • No USB Type-C
  • 10W charging takes a serious amount of time to fill up 5000mAh battery
Verdict
The Realme 5i misses out on a few basics features such as the USB Type-C port and a Full HD resolution display. If there wasn t any other smartphone that offered a better set of features for the same price, I d have definitely recommended the Realme 5i. That, fortunately, isn t the case. For the same price as the Realme 5i, you could get the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which offers all the features that the former lacks.

realme 5i Details

6.5 inch LCD Screen, Waterdrop Notch
The Realme 5i packs a 6.52-inch IPS LCD panel and there is a waterdrop notch at the top. The screen offers an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and it has a density of 270 ppi.
Helio P65 Chipset, Rear Quad Camera Setup
Quad camera setups seem to be the norm with Realme phones these days and it is the case with the Realme 5i as well. On the back, you get a 12MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP configuration of sensors that you can shoot some interesting shots with. For selfies, the phone is equipped with an 8MP front camera. All the processing power of the Realme 5i comes from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, which is fairly decent in terms of performance at this price point. You also get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Additionally, you can add up to 256GB of expandable memory thanks to the micro SD card slot. The phone runs ColorOS which is currently offering Android Pie.
5000mAh Battery, Connectivity
While the battery is quite large at 5000mAh, it will take a while to charge it to max capacity as it does not support fast charging. Connectivity-wise, you get Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and A-GPS. The phone features a micro USB port for charging and Realme has retained the 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint sensor is on the back.
