2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The design of the Realme X3 SuperZoom 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)
  • The Realme X3 SuperZoom is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g

Display

  • 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 SuperZoom makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • 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

Camera

  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, an 8MP periscope telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Daylight photos from the SuperZoom'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 of the Realme is the real standout feature - it can zoom up to 5x optically and captures sharp and detailed images with high contrast - colours and dynamic range are praiseworthy as well
  • Portraits are good too, the blur quality is nice and the intensity is just right
  • Very good dual selfie cameras, 32MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - 32MP camera of the Realme X3 SuperZoom takes really good selfies with a ton of detail and the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie
  • Low-light photos from the Realme X3 SuperZoom 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 SuperZoom offer versatile cameras, but they are inconsistent and a bit unreliable to be the go-to shooter in your pocket

Audio

  • No headphone jack

Battery

  • Very good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - the SuperZoom 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

Verdict

  • The X3 Superzoom 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
