Realme seems to have adopted a strategy to release the same phone in a hundred different iterations, changing a couple of things and rebranding it to appear new. At least that seems the case when you look at the sheer amount of new phones the brand has launched in 2019. When each of its devices offers value for money, it gets tricky to buy the right phone. Well, phone buyers are definitely in trouble because Realme shows no sign of slowing down. The latest offering from the Oppo sub-brand is the Realme 5i, which, as the name indicates, is a toned-down variant of the Realme 5. The phone comes with a Snapdragon 665 chipset under the hood and packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. The phone’s display is a 6.52-inch LCD panel offering a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. On the back, you get a 12MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-camera setup. The phone also has an 8MP front camera built into the notch on the display. The phone comes with a 5000mAh battery which is great news as that’s a good two days of use. Some of the popular Realme mobile phones include the Realme 7iRealme X50 Pro, and the Realme X50.

Realme 5i: Pros & Cons

out of 10
  • Good Stuff
  • 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
  • Bad Stuff
  • 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
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.
