However, The The device is a Splash-Proof Means in Normal Daily Usage but Not for the Extreme Situation also Found in Realme 5.

Software, Privacy and Security
The Device Run on Android 9 Pie-based Custom Skin ColorOS 6 on top out of the Box. We Know that the UI Is a lot Mature But on Realme Device Doesn’t Feel the Same on What We Experience on Oppo Devices. While it the Same Offering on Other Realme Devices Just Same Experience. We are waiting for the Realme OS With and Android 10 Updates on future as Well at Q1 of 2020.
There is also a Dedicated Game Booster, Which Frees the Resources to Focus on your Gaming. It also offers you a Night Mode With a lot of Options to Play. There are Some Pre-Installed apps from third part But you can uninstall it, there are no ads on their UI and Privacy Sharing is Negligible.
It having a Both Rear Mounted Fingerprint Sensor and Face-Unlock Which Work Preety Find Fast. Most of the time it accurate and You can use Both at Same Time. Which you have to Enable from Setting By default it Doesn’t, Face-Unlock is Fast but Still, it Use a Selfie Camera I Prefer to Use Physical Fingerprint Sensor.
This is the First Time When the Realme Feature a Quad Camera Setup. Which is Harrilous that they Didn’t think of a Triple Camera Setup they Jump Straight from Dual to Quad Camera. Anyway, the Rear 48MP Quad Camera Setup With and Ultra Wide-angle Macro lens.
The Rear Quad Cmera Equipped With a 48MP Primary Sony IMX 586 Sensor With an f/1.79 aperture + 8MP 119° Wide-angle + 2MP Depth + 2MP Macro Lens 4CM Shooting Distance. The Rear Primary Sensor is the Same Found on Realme X, Which Bring a Great Sharpness, Nice Detailed yet Not Oversaturated. If you Need More Vibrant Images then you can Turn on Chroma Boost.

Selfies are Also Same With Both portraits and Norman Selfe.
Moving Forward to Wide-angle Lens, This is the First Device from Realme to Packed a Wide-angle Lens. The Primary and the Wide-angle Doesn’t Suffer Much and Color Shifting. Similarly, We Can Expect a Lesser Details on Wide-angle Images but there is Nothing to Worrying. The Depth Sensor is Great as Well, The Edge Detection for 2MP is Slightly Pleasing and Social Media Friendly.
The Macro Lens is Not Good at all But done the Job. Similarly to Realme 5 pro it a Gimmick Because taking the Same image from a Distance Using Macro for Normal it Just a Same Most of the Time. We Can Expect Realm Could Provide a Better than Current, Nightscape Feature is There Just for Compensate Which is Just Balance the Lighting Condition by Adjusting Exposure.
The Video Recording on the Device is Nice, It having a 4K Video Recording at 30fps, 1080 HD Video Recoding at 30fps/60fps and 720 HD Video Recoding at 30fps/60fps. While the Slow Motion in 1080 and 720p at 120fps/960fps Respectively. Which is Great and the Video stabilisation is Okay in this Price But you Can use a Gimbal to Record in 4K.

The Battery Life is Good because of Having a 10nm Soc Power Efficient Means you can Easily get a ~7-8 Hours of battery life for General use.
Cons about the Device
The Device Support up to 3 Multiple Touch But 4th Touch is Having an Issue. It Just Shows Ghost Touches over the Device but again We Can Expect Realme Could Fix via an Update in Future. Again in Day to Day uses I Don’t Feel any of it But ya it’s There. Almost Every Single Realme Device We Didn’t get Physical LED Notification Light, I Guess you are Going to Miss if you are a Redmi Users.
We Suggest you Go With a 6GB Ram variant, Which is Just ₹1,000 more But you Will be Future Proof if you are going to buy it for long Terms Usage. We all Known that the Device Will be Getting Updates about Android 10 in Q1 of 2020 along Apps are Getting More Heavier Than Previous.
