2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Inherits the beautiful, striking, diamond-back design of the Realme C2 - making it easily one of the best looking budget phones
  • The front is sharp and modern too, with a dew-drop notch design
  • Quick and accurate fingerprint sensor, at the back
  • Super fast face unlock

Display

  • Nice, modern dewdrop notch display with good colours and wide viewing angles
  • Sunlight legibility could be better

Software

  • ColorOS is now leaner, and more streamlined compared to before and has some useful add-on features like Quiet Time (to schedule a time when you do not want to receive notifications and calls or receive messages/calls from only selected contacts), Night Shield screen, etc

Performance

  • Very good performance for the price bracket with a relatively powerful MediaTek Helio P60 (similar to Snapdragon 653) - day-to-day use, as well as high-end games in low/medium graphics settings, are smooth

Camera

  • Reasonably ok camera setup for the price
  • The dual rear camera setup is capable of taking good pictures in bright outdoors with accurate colours reproduction
  • The 13MP front camera also does decently well - in ideal lighting conditions
  • Portrait mode on the front camera is pretty good too
  • Overall detail levels, exposure, and dynamic range though are just average though
  • Indoor shots under artificial lighting carry a lot of noise and low light shots are not that good

Audio

  • The speaker on Realme 3i is very loud (though of course, as expected, it lacks depth)

Battery

  • Excellent battery life - you will get about 1.5 days of use, with moderate usage

Verdict

  • Realme 3i is another welcome addition to the Realme 3 series and it caters to the users who want something between the Realme C2 and Realme 3, both in terms of performance and price - it's a good option at this price point
