2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Pristine design - the Realme 6 has a gradient finish with multiple streaks running down the back, converging at the bottom centre - it shines when light hits it, giving the phone a premium look
  • Trendy, modern hole-punch design at the front, which isn't very common at this price point
  • Compared to the Realme 5, the Realme 6 has a rounded, curvier back that makes it more ergonomic to hold
  • The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is quick and accurate
  • Face unlock is super quick and combined with raise-to-wake feature, makes for a seamless unlocking experience
  • Good, large 6.5 inches full-HD+ IPS display with thin bezels and new punch-hole camera - the colours and peak brightness of the screen are good
  • The display has a 90Hz refresh rate which helps the smartphone deliver a smooth experience - games that support 90Hz displays, like Alto's Odyssey, are particularly enjoyable to play
  • Software is one area where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some 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
  • Super snappy performance with the powerful MediaTek Helio G90T - day to day tasks are a breeze on this phone, applications open quickly, RAM management is quite good and multitasking is also handled well - the phone breezes through medium and high-level graphic-intensive games like PUBG, which runs smoothly
  • Good quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP Ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP monochrome camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • In daylight, primary camera captures some fine-looking shots with a good amount of detail and dynamic range, it is quick to focus and meter light properly in most scenarios - image processing does a good job at adding punchy-ness to the colours
  • The wide-angle camera is decent and offer a wide field of view which comes handy in tight places and capturing more area - warping on the edges is taken care of decently through software (though, the quality isn't as good as the primary sensor)
  • In low light, the camera takes good-looking shot - the Night Mode does a much better job in low light by stitching together multiple frames delivering a brighter overall result, shots taken with Night Mode have significantly better details (however, quality dips slightly in low-light)
  • Selfies shot with the Realme 6 have good detail, and beautification is enabled by default, photos are good enough to be shared on social media - you can take portrait shots, panoramas and even time-lapse videos with the front camera
  • The new black and white monochrome lens helps take great monochrome portraits - this lens helps the main sensor grab a wider spectrum of greys, hence adding more richness and texture to portrait shots
  • Battery life on the Realme 6 is quite good with the 4300 mAh cell, manages to go on for over a day and a half before needing to be plugged in
  • The 30W fast charging is unheard of at this price and that too with bundled charger in the box - the phone gets to 65 percent in 30 minutes and took a little over an hour to charge completely
  • The Realme 6 is a power-packed phone that's definitely one of the most interesting offerings in its price segment - with segment-first features like a 90Hz display and 30W fast charging, it is one of the best smartphones money can buy in this price segment - the Helio G90T is a great performer, the quad-camera setup offers versatility, and Realme's UI is quite good too
  • The Narzo 10A has identical shape and size as the Realme C3, with the only changes being at the back - Realme added a stark flat back panel with a gigantic Realme logo splashed across the entire length of the device
  • Trendy, tear-drop notch front design - the bezels on the sides are impressively thin for smartphones at this price
  • The 20:9 aspect ratio makes the smartphone tall and slim, so it's relatively comfortable to hold and use
  • The fingerprint sensor and face recognition both works quickly and seamlessly
  • Large, 6.5 inch IPS display with HD+ resolution - the colours are vibrant with a decent amount of sharpness
  • Sunlight legibility is also good - the display gets bright enough for comfortable outdoor use
  • The Narzo 10A comes with Realme UI based on Android 10 which is much more streamlined and clean compared to previous Realme phones - it still packs a lot of useful features like Dark mode, Focus mode, Game Space and Personal Information Protection
  • Excellent performance for the price - the MediaTek Helio G70 throws the competition out of the park and scores even higher at benchmarks than the much pricier Galaxy A51 and the Oppo F15 - there's no noticeable lag in regular use and PUBG Mobile on the Narzo 10A defaults to High presets and runs fairly smooth
  • Decent triple camera setup for the price - a 12MP primary, 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the Narzo 10A is quick to lock focus and does a fair job of metering light, photos look good and the quality is better than what some of the other smartphones at this price point can produce
  • Realme has added a decent macro camera, which gives you Instagram worthy macros
  • Decent portrait mode, with good edge detection (though, the quality could have been better)
  • Decent video recording quality, with a option to shoot slow motion videos
  • Impressive battery life with a big 5000 mAh battery - it lasts for two full days on a single charge with moderate usage
  • Realme has made some design changes at the back, added a fingerprint sensor and a macro camera and everything else is same as the Realme C3 and all that at a very nominal price increase - which makes the Realme Narzo 10A a steal
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A bit thick at 9.6mm
  • The rear panel isn't glass, and could pick up minor scuffs and scratches (though, it's more durable and light-weight)
  • There are still a number of pre-loaded apps however - though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled
  • 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)
  • A bit heavy, at 195g
  • There is no Widevine L1 certification which means that you cannot enjoy HD content on Netflix and Amazon Prime
  • There's still some bloatware that comes pre-installed
  • Low light photos are average, as expected, they lack detail and aren't very sharp
  • Selfies are average too with inaccurate colour tone and low sharpness and details
  • Still offers the old MicroUSB, while the competition has started offering USB Type-C in the budget segment
  • Charging is on the slower side with the 10W charger - it takes over 3 hours to charge the smartphone completely
