Dual camera system. We kinda miss the ultrawide, even if it’s a gimmick.
Companies finally realized how useless 2MP macros are, about time really. It wasn’t until content creator pressure that they were finally ditching it. The Realme 10 is an example of that. It is an attractive phone that is deceptively expensive.
It features a punch-hole at the front housing the 16MP camera. Some of our colleagues told us that the camera software of this is pretty similar to the Realme 9 Pro+. Considering the price of that handset, seeing it on a much more budget-friendly phone is a pretty nice touch.
It does not have the same camera system though. The rear camera features a 50MP sensor without any stabilization features. There is also a 2MP depth camera that also should be removed in the future.
The display is also something to note, it’s actually a 6.43in. SAMOLED protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, something you would not find on a budget phone, and if you do, that’s a rare thing unless it’s an older flagship. In addition, it comes with a 90Hz refresh rate.
When people talk about price, they always look at a chipset. And it’s sad to see that. While yes, the phone can be pricey because it uses a Helio G99 chipset instead of something like the Dimensity 810 with 5G, it’s still is priced okay considering other factors. We don’t want to forget this but this phone has 8GB RAM and 128GB storage that are expandable. RAM virtually and ROM through a MicroSD card. If you’re a gamer, then the 256GB option might be a better deal for you.
It comes with a typical 5000mAh battery with Oppo’s 33W SuperVOOC fast charging because Realme is just yellow Oppo at this point, like how OnePlus is a red Oppo. It runs Realme UI 3.0 layered on top of Android 12.
It has a 3.5mm jack, 4G LTE services, and USB-C port. Despite being SAMOLED, the phone uses a side-mounted fingerprint reader, probably for cost cutting measures.
Clash White and Rush Black are its colours. It starts at Php 12,999 and can go all the way to Php 14,999. The phone will be discounted on 11.11 so if you’re planning to buy it, better wait til then, you also get up to Php 2,000 discount.
This can be a little conflicting with its pre-order date as it starts much later, November 26th. This means the phone’s availability on 11.11 is for flash sale purposes, and also for marketing. The company is IDC’s number one in terms of shipments and they definitely do not want to lose that ranking.
