2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 19+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Gorgeous design, with some eye-catching color combinations for the (plastic) back panel
  • Very good build quality and finish
  • Fast fingerprint sensor, and face unlock

Display

  • Good 6.3inch IPS panel, with a small dewdrop notch, and minimal bezels - it's sharp, decently bright, has high contrast, and accurate colors
  • Media playback is handled well, and videos are rendered with punchy colours

Software

  • ColorOS 6 UI has a new, cleaner look, and is quite feature packed, including plenty of motion and screen gestures
  • Thankfully, unlike, its main competitor, the Redmi Note 7 Pro, there are no spammy ads in the UI
  • Realme continues to pre-install quite a few third-party apps such as a Webnovel, NewsPoint, ShareChat, etc (though most of them can be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Class leading performance (especially in terms of GPU) with a Snapdragon 710 at the core - everything from daily use to complex games like PUBG is a breeze
  • The phone also doesn't heat too much even after prolonged gaming sessions

Camera

  • Excellent camera package - mostly on par with the leading camera phone of this price bracket, the Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Packs the 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor with an f/1.7 aperture - this is the same sensor used in some premium phones such as the OnePlus 6T - there's also a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor for the phone's Portrait mode
  • In daylight, the the Realme 3 Pro captures very good details in landscape shots
  • Macros are sharp and well detailed too
  • The phone's AI scene recognition is quick to recognise most common objects such as flowers
  • Night photography is pretty decent too - and the the phone's Nightscape mode comes in handy here - it takes a second or two longer than usual to capture your shot, but the end result is a sharper image with much better detail
  • The depth sensor does a very good job with edge detection, and even in low light, you can get a very pleasing bokeh effect
  • Good 25-megapixel selfie camera too - selfies from the Realme 3 Pro pack a lot of detail and noise is kept in check - colors are excellent as well
  • Selfie portraits are quite good too, even though they don't get the benefit of a dedicated depth sensing camera - subject separation is very competent, there are no clipped ears and blur is natural-looking as well
  • Good video recording performance too - with good overall footage quality, and nice color reproduction
  • Video stabilization at 1080p could have been better though

Audio

  • The single speaker gets loud enough for media playback

Connectivity

  • Uses the old microUSB port, instead of the modern USB Type-C port

Battery

  • Excellent battery life - the combination of a large 4045mAh battery pack, an efficient processor, and Realme's optimizations means that this an easy 2-days battery life phone, even beating out (slightly) the excellent Redmi Note 7 Pro in battery life tests
  • Super fast VOOC fast charging using the bundled charger is again class-leading - it can top up the battery from zero all the way to 90 percent in about an hour

Verdict

  • Overall, the Realme 3 Pro is absolutely great bang-for-the-buck, and is pretty neck-to-neck with the other top phone in this price bracket - the Redmi Note 7 Pro - while the Redmi Note 7 has a more premium glass build, and the modern USB Type-C port, the Realme 3 Pro has an edge in terms of a bundled fast charger, a slightly better processor, and cleaner (ad-free) software
