Realme 5i Review: Budget Smartphone With A Large Battery But Nothing Compelling Beyond That
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Should you go for it? Realme 5i is a fine option for you IF you are just looking for a phone for regular use and all these specifications like an average camera or slow charge don't really make a difference to you. Realme 5i will get the job done and for many people, that will be enough.

84% Realme 5i Review – The Budget King Is Back
Source: Manila Shaker English
To cap off this review, coming from a flagship phone, I can finally see myself using a budget phone. Realme 5i has its share of downsides but its upsides are more relevant to users who are looking for the best budget phone today. The cameras are decent, the battery life is solid, and the build choice is a no-brainer. If you’re fond of watching high-quality videos like me, this may not be the right one for you. But if not, I think Realme 5i is almost the best phone you can buy for under P7,000. Just imagine if Realme included FHD+ here.

Realme 5i Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Realme 5i is basically a Realme 5 but with a lower front-camera resolution, different design, and a lower price tag. Priced at PHP 6,990 with 3GB + 64GB configuration, it’s just PHP 1,000 less compared to the Realme 5 with the same configuration. Realme basically wants to further strengthen their foothold in the budget segment. The question is, should you buy this one instead of the base model Realme 5?

Realme 5i Hands-on, Quick Review: The New Budget Battery King?
Source: Unbox English
All in all, it looks like the Realme 5i is another solid choice for budget buyers looking for a phone that has a good mix of looks, performance, and price. Speaking of price, Realme Philippines hasn’t announced pricing for the phone yet but if we go with Vietnam and India pricing, it’ll be retailing around the 8-9K mark when it lands here next week.

79% Realme 5i Review — Third Time’S The Charm?
Source: Pokde English
All in all, the realme 5i is quite similar to the standard realme 5, albeit having a single band connectivity (2.4GHz), a lower resolution front camera, as well as the different design at the back. It’s a decent offering from realme to give consumers more choice, although it was most probably unnecessary given that the realme 5 already covered the exact same price segment, and with a better selfie camera to boot. But then again… The back is too hard to ignore…

Over the last few months, realme released the realme 5 family of smartphones. Last month, realme added the 5s into the family. And recently, realme added yet another entry into the family – the realme 5i. But what are the differences between the realme 5, realme 5s, and the realme 5i?

82% Realme 5i review – Realme 5 vs Realme 5s vs Realme 5i which one to buy?
Source: Gogi.in English
Since 5i is a Realme 5 replacement, makes sense to go either with the Realme 5s or the Realme 5i. A good handset for the price.

80% Realme 5i Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme 5i is a watered-down Realme 5 at a more aggressive price. For Rs. 8,999 the 5i does pack quite a punch thanks to the Snapdragon 665 SoC and 4GB of RAM. The 5,000mAh battery also delivers very good battery life. However, camera performance is a bit of a letdown. The main purpose of the Realme 5i aims at offering powerful hardware at a more affordable price, and it succeeds at that to an extent. If you want a phone primarily for gaming, the Realme 5i should keep you happy. However, if you are willing to stretch your budget, the Realme 5s (Review) and the Redmi Note 8 (Review) are better all-rounders.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 665: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.52":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.195 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
