2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • The design of the Realme X3 is identical to the Realme 6 Pro - it looks elegant and beautiful (though, the plastic frame and overused design might not be of everyone's taste)
  • The dual hole-punch cutout at the front gives the phone a modern appearance
  • Fingerprint Sensor is embedded in the unlock button and it is quick (though, it is a bit unreliable)
  • Good 6.6-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display - it gives off quite punchy, and vivid colours (though, an AMOLED display would be appreciated at this price)
  • The 120Hz refresh rate on the Realme X3 makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use
  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as app cloning, Google Assistant, a gaming mode, digital wellbeing, and contactless payments among others - there are some more interesting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Snapdragon 855 Plus is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG at the highest settings with ease
  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, an 12MP telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Daylight photos from the X3's main cam are very good - it captures a lot of fine detail and processes it in a natural manner, so it doesn't have an artificial look
  • The 8MP ultra-wide angle cam turns in a solid performance too, with good detail and wide dynamic range
  • The telephoto camera can zoom up to 20x hybrid shots and capture good images
  • Portraits are good too, the blur quality is nice and the intensity is just right
  • Good dual selfie cameras, 16MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - 16MP camera of the Realme X3 takes decent selfies with a good of detail and the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie
  • Very good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - the X3 delivers a solid day and a half of battery life, even with heavy usage
  • The bundled 30W fast charger is very quick and manages to charge the battery from zero to about 90 per cent in an hour
  • The Realme X3 is a pretty good buy for its price - the display is great for an LCD, performance is solid, and battery life is excellent and the cameras are good enough
2-minute Review [Negatives] N/A
  • The Realme X3 is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g
  • Low-light photos from the Realme X3 aren't quite as good, images from the main cam are on the soft side and quite noisy too - Night mode improves things a bit but the quality of the shots is still not exciting
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)
  • Overall, the Realme X3 offer versatile cameras, but they are inconsistent and a bit unreliable to be the go-to shooter in your pocket
  • No headphone jack
