2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Bold, stunning design thanks to the diamond-like reflective body - this is a device that certainly stands out - it is housed inside a fibre-glass casing that has been cut at different angles such that each section of the glass back turns to a different shade of black when light is reflecting off it!
  • Lightweight and well built
  • No fingerprint sensor, so you have to rely on the face unlock for quick unlocking (which does work quite well)

Display

  • Decent, modern 18:9 display with minimal bezels - which means that despite the large screen size, the phone will fit nicely into your hand

Software

  • Oppo's Color OS UI is not the most refined Android UI, and looks cluttered at places

Performance

  • Good all-round performance, similar to Snapdragon 636 phones, like the Redmi Note 5 Pro

Camera

  • Decent rear and front cameras - both the cameras support depth of field or Portrait effect, and Augmented Reality (AR) stickers
  • The rear camera pictures are reasonably crisp, and have decent color reproduction
  • The front camera relies heavily on Oppo’s AI algorithms to fine-tune the photos which results in good (if slightly artificial looking) photos
  • Overall, cameras are decent, but not quite up to the high benchmark of the Redmi Note 5 Pro

Battery

  • Good battery life - easily gives over a day’s usage for an average user
  • No support for fast charging - the phones take a little over two hours to charge from zero to full

More

  • Dedicated dual SIM card slots and microSD slot
  • Supports VoLTE on both the dual sim slots
  • On the whole, the Realme 1 offers a very solid option in spite of being in a super competitive price segment having some great phones by the likes of Xiaomi and Asus - if an interesting design, fast performance and good battery life are your primary concerns, then it should definitely be towards the top of your shortlist
  • The display is decent on the whole, but outdoor visibility is pretty ordinary
