Having Realme breathing down Xiaomi's neck has turned out for the better - while they fight - we all win. And the Redmi K30 is an obvious winner even if it's limited to China for now. With that screen, performance, camera, battery, and $300 or so price - it's impossible to lose. Until non-5G Realme X50 arrives, that is. Then it could be a tie. But that's a topic for this one future article.

Redmi K30 review: Immense value in a difficult ecosystem
Source: Android Authority English
The Redmi K30 comes with a side-mounted fingerprint reader, which shares space with the power button. This is nice in some regards because it’s a natural place for you to rest your thumb, but if you pick up the phone differently and a different finger touches the sensor, the phone will vibrate to deny you entry. Rear-mounted has always been my placement of choice, but this is subjective based on the user.
