In recent days we have been at our table for new analysis realme 5i, the inexpensive cheap we are trying to show you everything the company & # 39; spin-off & # 39; which should offer only 159 euros.
At this point we should be much clearer than water a real arrival in Europe It has not been in vain, and that the young Chinese manufacturer-firm spin-off at OPPO as Honor is from Huawei- it seems like he wants to come and play, and he wants to compete with Xiaomi at very cheap prices.
In fact, it is possible it happens that Redmi and realme are the same even in the name, but I do not believe in association and the only fact is that realme is undoubtedly the biggest contender for Xiaomi's cheap brand, with a growing four a killed by crime booklet like the realme X50 Pro fits well with the mid range like realme 6 and realme 6i, realme 5 and its brother realme 5i that today we analyze during a realme C3 that acts as an entry point to the exciting maritime range.
In the near future, that of the realme 5i, because it talks about a middle-level signal with some definitions, look for that perfect comparison between price and performance before specifying the first one to be more attractive, as well as a stylish and modern design that will please everyone you want a basic cell phone that doesn't cost your face, but at least it works well and brings you positive experiences.
Realme wants to keep playing, and introduce us to the new realme 5i that will make those looking for a basic and affordable phone enjoyable, but that works well and offers a positive and informal experience.

Good for realme 5i
Well-used plastic and offers quality designs
How often have we complained about those high-end phones polycarbonate housing, and in part I have to admit that I miss them a bit because plastic had some of the best things we have ever had, not least with these classic glass and steel sandals now taking over the market and already accepting as de facto standard.
First, plastic it's very easy and not too cold that the glass, and in its view also allows for a much better playing with the designs and textures, allowing realme to in this order Attractive design provided when the light reaches the back case.
Not only that, and the fact that the plastic injection allows the formation of that hunt in a simple way, so in this case we have kind of design unibody including device components to set up the front glass for Gorilla Glass to find a really nice finish, it's almost amazing.
And something else, no fingerprints on the backWritten plastic avoids them, and this is something I really miss on the Nexus One and its Teflon. I agree that yes, probably Do not be insulted because of the chassis and the metal frame
I doubt that plastic is best used in realme 5i neither is it disability if not profitable in my opinion, assuming that we have otherwise a well-made front panel panel in 20: 9 format very curved and protected by Gorilla Glass, small notch** front camera in the form of a waterfall.
At this limited time the audio-jack is not lost on headphones, and the realme 5i also has it all Slots independent, to know install two nano-SIMs and one Micro-SD at the same time enjoying dual SIM expansion and unlimited memory expansion.
Obviously there are moles, and if you're wondering where they are, the first one is right about the frame below, where it sits. the microUSB v2.0 connector that should have been replaced by Type-C USB, but that is kept alive in other post-recessionary economic sectors.
Realme 5i is a well-made, powerful, hands-free handset with no fingerprint protection, so you'll be lucky and won't have the eye to clean it all the time.
The standard experience is amazing with a 159 euro cellphone
If the finish was surprisingly good for the cell in this price range, and all this despite being a polycarbonate, the fact is yes I was a little skeptical about the performance that locked me up mouth, and that it really made the experience great with Restricted hardware but with compensation straightforward.
If you buy an inexpensive cellphone you already expect it in advance that its performance is not very good, and that's true this realme 5i is not exactly compatible with spread and power, though it comes as a surprise to user information. In fact, for me, the basics are set for an ever-expanding economic model, which no longer allows the installation of Qualcomm 400 Series chipset, but rather the 600 Series.
From this we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, specifically for the SDM665 model, which has a basic circular processor for good LITTLE construction up to 2.0 GHz and Adreno 610 GPUs. This electrical heart is compatible 4 GB of RAM and another 64 GB of expandable internal storage, a sufficient number of both cases have been assigned to the direction of the actual structure we analyze.
As always, we've donated a good portion of the analysis time to tests to be performed again to measure, because they do not provide reliability with regard to end-user information but they do when talking about high power levels:
It is clear that in this data for optimum performance and to improve the robustness of the set, it helps that your 6.52-inch IPS panel doesn't mount on the FullHD + matrix, staying in HD + resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels size 269 pixels per inch in my opinion it is enough of a good daily experience.
Communication is good, no glitches visible, as is the sound, it's very common, too the only thing missing here is the NFC connection is important for mobile payments that cannot be used with this 5i refund. Bad business by 2020 …
We have an FM radio, which you will need headphones to use as an antenna, too at its 164.4 x 75 x 9.3 meters maximum battery capacity is 5,000 mAh, which can be removable and has a load of up to 10W that provides brutal autonomy for more than 16 hours on screen is on, something that every user of a basic phone like this will receive, that won't need to be charged daily as we usually do:
It's amazing, as you'll see, because The PCMark app stores energy generated, measured by the panel during half-light and continuously perform regular tasks such as photo retrieval, video playback or Internet browsing. From my daily experience, I can confirm that access to two days of use is not a chimera but a normal one with this realme 5i, and maybe here are some of its powerful points.
You don't need much if what you need is a basic cell phone, and if what you need is a basic cell phone, what you want is that it works well in normal tasks, without overdosing but never changing.
Not so good with realme 5i
Operations, software and data: Color OS OS connector and microUSB connector
There is always something wrong to comment, there is no doubt about it, and in this case I am clear the worst comes with the details, since it's impossible to care for them without the cost of production causing Hardware or failure to work is understandable.
In any case we start with the unadjusted part, since Color OS will be a disability to people like me who don't like it customization is excessive like most Chinese women. If I wanted iOS, I'd buy an iPhone, and at the moment I don't understand why in China they emphasize that Android is similar to the iOS experience of its interface.
A non-unique Color OS however it works fineIt shows that we are not dealing with a highly functional cell phone, but often information is sufficient. At least if you're not looking a large number of bloatware pre-installed that will have to be manually removed, includes folders on the desktop that contain games and apps you don't really want:
In addition, it is worth mentioning an outstanding presence in the App Market, another store in the Google Play Store that truly advertises shamelessly even in the initial configuration of the call
Some of the unpleasant details are obviously their hardware performance, because they are portable in a day does not mean we will not complain about limited power, move the terminal without problems but it is the same for making many changes, or for games that charge graphics and frame rate.
This is welcome, at any time, because we no longer expect high performance on a 159 euros mobile, or at least it is acceptable over USB Type-C connector which offers a traditional and almost classic version of microUSB v2.0, something that looks to me unacceptable by 2020.
We also won't have mobile payments because no NFC chip, and it should be noted that Wi-Fi is not for a band-band as well can only connect to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi networks to remove 5 GHz networks at high speed. At least it has LTE with dual SIM, as well as independent memory expansion.
Obviously it's just details, and lots of it will not affect the daily needs of users that require a basic mobile, but it is true that it is a data mark and should be marked. In my opinion, ** the worst is the NFC and the USB Type-C USB connector, since both components are a you must be in these rushing days.
If the details make a difference, on a basic mobile we can't expect careful attention, so it's understandable that things are lacking: here, for example, the NFC or the Type-C connector is missing
The same is true for the realme 5i cameras
We always talk about the topic of mobile photography, fashion and so much difference, and here's a special mention mobile 159 euros wishing to have a quad system on its back to control its use, with good performance and full benefit.
Obviously not the most capable mobile when taking pictures, but it probably will one of the best in the mid and wide range of Android base, with more advanced skills, and more variety. In fact, this is the main camera of the realme 5i for angle, wide angle, macro and the depth sensor:
- 12 MP angle sensor with f / 1.8 aperture, PDAF autofocus
- 8MP wide sensor with f / 2.3 aperture, 13mm
- 2 MP macro sensor with f / 2.4 aperture
- 2-megapixel depth sensors with f / 2.4 aperture
No shortage of auto-HDR, LED flash, or 4K video recording power at 30 frames per second, left front is another 8 megapixel sensor with angular lenses, f / 2.0 aperture, HDR and video recording with FHD resolution.
You don't have to be good at giving good skills, and you don't have to be good at taking great pictures a smartphone that offers acceptable quality at a price rather than content. In this case, I couldn't ask for more, frankly, so let's take a look at its exact results.
A realme 5i camera, where the light fits …
As you would expect, it's at a time when the realme 5i quad camera works best, which in a positive light it can be between a beautiful and wonderful offering that is also transformative, because with its angular sensors, wide angle and large macro sensors you can get great results in exceptional situations no need to exit automatic modeWhich you will do more often.
The end natural colors, beautiful range and you are able, thanks to HDR, to compensate for the exposure and do not burn the pieces with great difference in lighting. It's not the high end and it's definitely noticeable at the detail and quality of the shots, but when in doubt the benefit of a smartphone is in the photography category. the result is very welcome:
And it has 10x hybrid zoom, but don't expect too much in this case because there is no periscope lens or anything to help you take pictures with good sharpness. Results are less available, as you'll see:
Sensor 2 megapixel macro It lets you focus on the closest things, and here's an example of what you can do three inches from these buses:
In any case, and since we know that one image – or more – is worth more than a thousand words, here we leave you with several photos taken with this realme 5i gallery:
… and at night
At night the result is above or below expected. While that is true having multiple sensors helps gather a lot of information to complete the usable images, the truth is the terminal imports grain in some cases and not enough sharpness.
In any case, it is not no cheap phone like this achieves such acceptable results overnight and in unfavorable conditions, so we won't risk 159 euros, at least in the photo category, is more than that number.
realme work a night panorama mode which involves keeping the signal focused for several seconds, and trying to take advantage of the long shutter light. As you will see, it is true that it improves results and gets more visible colors by improving sharpness, but it's not easy to stay 10 seconds focused if we want to add details that happened to a specific moment in the night:
To show the various buttons, because here we leave you a few photos taken at night or in illuminated areas so you can check the result:
Realme 5i: conclusions and ideas
It is becoming increasingly difficult to analyze mid- and low-end smartphones, because the gap between the input range and the internal width is blurred with a multitude of very similar options in doing that they make the choice their own and subjential.
Own realme is a good example, with terminals up to 5 medium cuts: realme 5, realme 5i, realme 6, realme 6i and realme 6 Pro. It's a bit tricky to separate, and in fact some real ones like the 6 Pro are already mounted to excellent specifications such as a panel with 90 Hz of refreshment.
The case of the realme 5i is easy to conclude, because it is considered wide perhaps it is what removes the best user experience at a low cost, to keep the program at a higher level than acceptable though reduce the cost of approximately a single entry.
Having a real 5i costs just 159 euros, too the terminal does everything to please those users who want a basic phone, not forcibly moving forward, however with the upper middle camera that allows them to get a good game in different situations without having to pick a choice, size of sensor or anything else.
To get this you have to make some agreements, but for sure If you're learning about Realme 5i, appreciate the experience that's more common than a USB Type-C connector, Wi-Fi 5GHz or NFC chip.. The finish also comes with this although it's plastic, which has worked well to offer a strong and attractive finish.
It is clear that in order to have a basic mobile phone that offers a good experience even with a quad camera, you have to make some concessions. In any case, this realme 5i is probably the most costly to the user and the experience compared to the lowest price in the universal catalog…
