2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Fresh, sophisticated and premium-looking rear design - it features a pattern of vertical pinstripes down the rear that seem to shift from side to side when you move the phone around under the light
  • Front looks slick with a dewdrop notch at the top
  • It's relatively easy to use and live with because of its tall and narrow footprint
  • The fingerprint reader is on the back and performs well
  • A bit thick at 9mm and relatively hefty at 199g

Display

  • Large 6.5-inch HD+ display - it's crisp enough for gaming and video streaming
  • Competition offers better displays with FHD+ resolution
  • The display isn't particularly bright and could be a problem to use in direct sunlight

Software

  • 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 Game Space, Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others
  • There are still a number of pre-loaded apps however - though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled

Performance

  • Good performance from the new MediaTek G80 chipset (similar to the Snapdragon 712) - the phone smoothly handles day-to-day task with ease and heavy games like PUBG Mobile run reasonably well

Camera

  • Decent quad-camera setup at the back - a 48MP primary camera, a 8MP ultra-wide, a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor
  • Shots with primary camera, under bright sunlight have lots of detail and exposures are well balanced - it works well for casual photography
  • The ultra-wide-angle camera delivers fairly decent shots and captures more of the scene in the frame, as long as there is good lighting
  • The portrait mode works well with well defined subjects and natural looking bokeh
  • The selfie camera is decent - it also takes quite good portraits
  • Low-light photography is just average, as expected from a budget phone
  • Macros are blotchy and rough, with the limited resolution, this camera should be used more for fun than anything else

Battery

  • Excellent battery life with the 5000 mAh battery - it easily lasts for 2 days of moderate use
  • Decent fast charging with the supplied 18W charger - it fills the phone's battery to the brim in about 2 hours

Verdict

  • The Narzo 10 is a very strong contender if your priority is performance and battery life, and for its target audience, which are gamers, these are the things that matter
  • However, if you can spend a little more, you might want to consider the Realme 6 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro instead, as they offer much better performance and cameras
