Reviews for the Oppo Realme 5s

60% Realme 5s review: Meets the expectations
Source: Gadgets Now English version
With a 48MP quad camera, 6.5-inch large screen and a 5000mAh battery, Realme 5s has some of the top features available in its price segment. With decent looks (although not new), it may attract quite a few takers. This price segment is already flooded with tons of options from Xiaomi, Vivo and Realme itself. Some of its competition include Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, Realme 5 and Vivo U10. Overall, Realme 5s is a good choice for those looking for a phone with general/average expectation like decent camera, good battery life and performance.

60% Realme 5s review: Does the 48MP camera and new colour make a difference?
Source: The Indian Express English version
The Realme 5s is just the Realme 5 repackaged with a new camera and coated with a new paint layer. But at a time when the competition is much more fierce in this price bracket, I would say that you are better off getting the Redmi Note 8, instead of the Realme 5s. However, if you want to only buy a Realme smartphone, I would recommend that you wait for the Realme 6, and seeing the company’s launch pattern I would say, the launch is not that far off.

Review – realme 5s: With a few differences
Source: NLT English version
As for the price, RM799 is logical. It’s literally the higher spec version of the realme 5. Is it a good phone? Well, depends on you. If you like a wider field of view on that 48MP camera plus a little more RAM, then get the realme 5s.

72% Realme 5s review
Source: GSM Arena English version
Our opinion on the Realme 5, or in this case Realme 5s, hasn't changed and it's an easy recommendation once again. For the same asking price, Realme is giving you a hardware refresh of the original Realme 5 with a better main camera and more adequate storage variants, now starting at 4GB/64GB. And aside from the dated microUSB connector, the Realme 5s would probably remain mostly uncontested in this price range. Then again, if you can get a hold of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, you should consider it as well - pretty much the only real rival to Realme's 5-series.

70% Realme 5s review: 48MP camera on budget
Source: India Today English version
After going through all the parameters, it appears that the Realme 5s is a confusing option. Why confusing? Well, as an upgrade, the Realme 5s brings a very good camera setup for its price and a design that commands a second look. The massive 5000mAh battery along with a power-efficient ColorOS 6 goes on to offer two-day stamina on an average. And with the Snapdragon 665 chipset, performance is on par with what you expect from a phone at this price.

80% Realme 5s Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English version
The Realme 5s is a very minor refresh of the Realme 5. The new main camera delivers slightly better results in daylight but still struggles in low-light situations for stills and videos. Other than this and the new body colour, there really isn't anything to distinguish this device from its predecessor. Since this phone has launched at the same price as its predecessor, we can't complain. It doesn't make sense to buy the Realme 5 now, unless you're on a tight budget and don't mind missing out on the new camera.

84% Realme 5S review – Redmi Note 8 vs Realme 5S which one is the best?
Source: English version
Both handsets come with finger print sensor, face unlock, dual VoLTE support and triple SIM slot with a dedicated micro SD card slot. So when you compare both the handsets the Redmi Note 8 seems a better option for Rs. 9,999.

When we reviewed the Realme 5, it was among the few smartphones to sport a macro camera, but things have changed now. Competitors such as the Redmi Note 8 have one too, which could have prompted Realme to bump up the primary sensor. Apart from their performance in low light, we had found the Realme 5's cameras to be acceptable for the price. Will the Realme 5s set a new benchmark in this price segment? We will be putting this smartphone through all our tests soon! Do stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for our full review of the Realme 5s, dropping soon.

Realme 5s hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English version
The Realme 5s is a highly-competitive low-end device with a few great standout features like the humongous 5,000 mAh battery, versatile camera setup including the trendy 48MP sensor and the competent Snapdragon 665 SoC, which is an excellent alternative to some other rivals still running the older Snapdragon 600-series chips.

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.


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.

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

72.29%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
