Please do not take this harshly, as it is a well-thought-out compilation for you. In this article, we will discuss the issues that are currently plaguing budget range smartphone manufacturer Realme. The company has been busy launching its new smartphone, the Realme 10 Pro Series 5G, which we have reviewed based on the information we were able to gather.

While Realme has been successful with its aggressive pricing strategy, there are some instances of cost cutting that we will discuss later. With all the buzz surrounding the company, some of you may be considering purchasing a Realme device during this festive season. That is why we have created this informative article to assist you in making a purchasing decision. We will not be focusing on any specific device in this article, as we have already covered that in a separate review. We are simply here to share our thoughts and process with you, and not to dissuade you from purchasing a Realme device.

Price cut or a Price reduction

Realme introduces their devices with great pricing, but they often drop the price within 15 days or less after the launch. Many users are disappointed to learn that they could have saved a significant amount by waiting just a month for a better deal. This can lead to a loss of trust between the brand and its customers.

Resale value

If you decide that you do not like the device and want to resell it, keep in mind that if the device is already available at a low price, it may be difficult to find a buyer. In such a case, potential buyers may choose to purchase a new device instead. It is important to consider the resale value of a device before making a purchase, as it can help to determine the potential return on investment.

Confusing Smartphone Series 

In addition to the Realme Number series, such as Narzo and C-Series, the GT-Series smartphones are difficult to remember. It is challenging to keep track of the devices that are being launched and which ones are the successors to other models. There is no clear pattern to follow, as with the Realme C30S, C31, C33, and C35, there is no Realme C32 or C34. They further complicate matters by adding suffixes like I, S, XT, Y, PRO, and 5G to the end of the device names.

Sucessor don’t recive any major upgrades

Since Realme has launched many smartphones, even within the same series, users often do not see any major upgrades in the new models. Aside from a few changes here and there, the smartphones remain largely the same. This can be frustrating for users who were expecting to see significant improvements in the new models.

In some cases, even important features may be downgraded, as we saw with the Realme 10 Pro+ which, aside from a slightly improved display, offered no major upgrades over the Realme 9 Pro+. It is important for companies to regularly update and improve their products in order to maintain customer satisfaction and loyalty.

In some cases, companies may attempt to boost the clock speed by 100 MHz or make other minor improvements, but these changes do not always translate into a better user experience. For example, upgrading the megapixel count of a camera does not necessarily improve its quality, and in some cases, important features may be downgraded.

This was the case with the Realme 9 Pro+ and 10 Pro+, where the 9 Pro+ had OIS but the 10 Pro+ did not. Additionally, the 9 Pro+ had a glass build while the 10 Pro+ had a plastic build, which was also a downgrade. We have also noticed this pattern with the Realme 7 Pro and 8 Pro. It is important for companies to focus on making meaningful improvements to their products in order to maintain customer satisfaction.

Before purchasing a Realme smartphone, it is important to avoid making common mistakes that could lead to regret. One such mistake is buying the device when it is not on sale. To avoid this, try to wait for the device to go on sale before making a purchase.

Additionally, Realme should consider making their strategy more transparent and easy for consumers to understand. This can help to prevent misunderstandings and ensure that consumers are able to make informed decisions about which Realme device to buy.

We also advise skipping one generation of the device. For example, if you own a Realme 9 Pro+, you may want to skip the current Realme 10 Pro+ and wait for the successor. There is no harm in sticking with one brand, but it is important to be aware of how well the brand treats its customers. By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision about which Realme device to purchase.
