Review

DESIGN

Dazzling design, with a beautiful gradient color finish, the sort of design that you can really brag about. Fast, effective fingerprint sensor. Fast, effective face unlock, but The Realme 3's glossy back, of course, attracts plenty of smudges very easily.

DISPLAY

Large, modern, bright, 6.22 inch, dewdrop notch screen, with good viewing angles. But it's Screen resolution is on the low side and Sunlight legibility also could have been better.

SOFTWARE

The new and improved ColorOS 6.0 is now lighter and more refined. Isn't strewn with ads like Redmi phones (which are going to be the main competition here) now tend to be.

PERFORMANCE

Excellent, unmatched performance for this price bracket with a powerful Helio P70 chipset at the core (similar to the Snapdragon 660) - it will steamroll through anything you throw at it, including high-end games like PUBG (which easily runs at 30fps).

CAMERA

Decent dual camera setup on the rear, with AI features (can recognize 16 independent scenes and 100 scene combinations). Does reasonably well in good lighting conditions with decent resolved detail, decent contrast, and accurate colors. New modes like Chroma Boost and Night mode, can be handy at times.

Decent portrait mode too - subject separation works well, there aren't many abrupt transitions from sharp to blurred, and the bokeh is nice. Decent selfie camera too, with good detail, nice colors and sharp enough images. The selfie cam also offers simulated bokeh, and it does a ok job. But, Average video recording performance, there's no stabilisation, so footage is shaky if you move about too much and low light photography is nothing to write home about.

BATTERY

Impressive battery backup with a large 4230mAh battery, you will end a full use day with a comfortable 35 - 40% left in the tank.

CONCLUSION

Realme 3 is very likely another big hit from the Realme brand, especially for the exceptional (and unmatched) performance it brings to this price bracket. But, honestly there are some very good competitors in a slightly higher bracket though like the Redmi Note 7, and Realme U1, which have similar hardware but higher resolution displays, so you might want to look at these especially if display quality is key for you.
