Reviews for the Oppo Realme 3i

Realme 3i Review
Source: The Mobile Indian English version
Realme 3i offers you a good design and the performance is satisfactory. The battery performance is different and the user interface comes loaded with its fair share of hits and misses. The display could have been better and the camera performance is quite average in nature. Overall, if you are looking to buy this smartphone, be sure to check for the rest of the competition.

70% Realme 3i Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English version
The sole purpose of the Realme 3i existing is to plug the gap between the Realme C2 (Review) and the Realme 3 (Review). The base variant at Rs. 7,999 is a decent pick, as it's Rs. 1,000 less expensive than the Redmi 7, with the same amounts of RAM and storage. There's also no reason to buy the top-end variant of the Realme C2 anymore, as it's the exact same price as the 3i.

Realme 3i: Affordable smartphone with smudge free design, good performance
Source: Business Standard English version
Priced at Rs 9,999 (4GB+64GB), the Realme 3i is a cross between the Realme 3 and the Realme C2. It is an excellent performer in its segment with good on-battery time. Consider this phone for its unique design, good performance, decent on-battery time and capable imaging. The phone’s display could have been better and made the phone a complete all-rounder in its segment.

Realme 3i Quick Review
Source: Mobygyaan English version
The Realme 3i comes in Diamond Blue, Diamond Black and Diamond Red colors and it is priced at Rs 7,999 for the base variant 3 GB + 32 GB and Rs 9,999 for 4 GB + 64 GB variant. At this price, the Realme 3i seems convincing, not only it has decent hardware, but a good camera package and a battery enough to last long for the day.

70% Realme 3i review: Good performance, stunning design for Rs 7,999
Source: The Indian Express English version
Realme 3i is a welcome addition to the Realme 3 series and it caters to the users who want something between the Realme C2 and Realme 3, both in terms of performance and price. While the Realme 3i does not offer a commendable screen and camera, it packs a beautiful back panel, above-average performance, and a great battery backup. For users who want a smartphone under Rs 8,000 which can deliver an all-rounder performance, Realme 3i is not a bad deal.

84% Realme 3i Review: A ‘Real’ Headache for Other Budget Phones
Source: Tech PP English version
Priced at Rs. 7,999 for the base variant, there is no doubt that the Realme 3i, is one of the best options present in the market right now at its price point. Yes, there are a few negatives like the slightly dull display and a not so great front-facing camera, but other than that, the phone actually delivers a very good performance for the price, and well, we cannot stop talking of the difference that design makes. Yes, there is competition from Xiaomi and Nokia with Xiaomi Redmi 7 and Nokia 2.2, respectively, but the Realme 3i is able to hold its own against these. Comfortably. And look a darn sight better besides. If that does not tell you how good it is, nothing will. The realme 3i is hands down one of the most complete smartphones at its price tag.

Realme 3i First Impressions: Different design, standard internals!
Source: The Mobile Indian English version
Realme 3i comes with an interesting design language. The Diamond cut finish at the back panel sure looks different from the rest of the competition. However, the rest of the specifications are pretty much standard for this price range. As for its rivals concerned, it will compete with the likes of Redmi Note 7s and more.

The Realme 3i actually falls between the Realme C2 and the Realme 3. Realme C2 comes with Helio P22, the Realme 3 comes with Helio P70 and the Realme 3i with Helio P60. Overall nice handset, pretty powerful, looks great and provides excellent battery life.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
