Reviews for the Realme P1 5G

72% Realme P1 5G Review: Unrivalled performance in its price segment
Source: Think Digit English
The Realme P1 has carved a niche for itself – it is the single, most powerful phone money can buy under ₹16,000 (₹15K if you have specific bank cards). The Realme P1 will be my default recommendation for gamers and pro-users who want a powerful phone without breaking the bank (for now). While power is its top priority, it’s not a slouch in several other areas as well. The battery life is long-lasting, the AMOLED display and stereo speakers offer an immersive viewing experience, and the design is eye-catching. With the Redmi Note and Realme ‘number’ lineup’s recent uptick in price, the ₹15-20K smartphone segment is ripe for some healthy competition. These phones were once the defacto choice in the sub-₹20,000 price segment, however, given these phones are now a more premium proposition, we need fresh new alternatives in this segment.

Realme P1 5G Review: Pocket Friendly Performer
Source: Cashify English
Realme has taken the fight head-on with Poco with its new P1 series of smartphones. The Realme P1 offers excellent performance, unique design and decent cameras for its price range. However, you will still need to deal with the pre-installed apps apart from the infamous Hot Apps and Hot Games folder. The lack of an ultrawide-angle sensor and average low-light performance can also be potential deal breakers for some. But, if you can look past them, the Realme P1 is a solid performer that offers great value for money. Other options in this segment include the Poco X6 Neo 5G, Samsung Galaxy M15 5G, Lava Blaze Curve 5G, and Vivo T3x 5G.

70% Realme P1 5G Review: Not Your Average Midrange Performer
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme P1 5G aims to be an affordable midrange phone that focuses on performance and reliable battery life. It has a decent AMOLED screen. On these three fronts, the phone offers good value for money, possibly undercutting the company's own Realme 12+ 5G, which features the same chipset and battery capacity, albeit with faster charging. The company has marketed this phone as a fast performer around the Rs. 16,000 mark, and if you're looking for a handset that delivers great day-to-day performance, then the Realme P1 5G is easy to recommend. It's also good for playing games like BGMI and Call of Duty: Mobile, and it can also handle most applications with ease. However, the cameras on the Realme P1 5G leave much to be desired and are not the phone's strongest suit.

Realme P1 5G Review – The all-rounder in its class
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme P1 5G has a lot to offer, based on the features and specs, we can say, this is an all-rounder smartphone in the segment. You get a compressive package including a 120 Hz super bright AMOLED display, a fast processor (Dimensity 7050), 45W charging, and a bunch of other stuff such as RainWater Smart Touch, IP54 water-resistant design, stereo speakers, and realme UI 5.0 perks. For those looking for a smartphone in the ₹15,000 to ₹20,000 price bracket, the realme P1 5G is indeed a great pick in the midrange segment, the price starts at ₹15,999 which can be grabbed at a flat ₹1,000 discount using the launch offers.

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.

71%: 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.
