Reviews for the realme Narzo 30A

Realme Narzo 30A Review: Inexpensive Smartphone Helio G85 and 6000mAh
Source: Awaqua English
After in-depth testing of the new budget model of the Realme Narzo 30A device, I was left with a good impression. On the positive side, I can highlight the presence of a large 6.5-inch IPS screen with good color reproduction. I also liked the performance thanks to the decent Helio G85 processor. In addition, there were some drawbacks. But do not be surprised, since this is a budget smartphone model and negative points will be present here. For example, the screen resolution of the device was only HD+, and I also did not like the presence of an outdated Android 10 OS. Well, the last drawback for me is not the best image quality of the main and front cameras.The device also stands out for its good functionality of features. For example, there is a separate slot for a memory card and a 3.5 mm headphone jack on board the device. But the most important advantage of the device is its large battery capacity of 6000 mAh with fast charging.

realme Narzo 30A review - A basic phone for basic usage
Source: Tech Nave English
All in all, the Narzo 30A is excellent for those on a budget with its RM599 price tag. The battery performance is good too, as it can last up to two days if you don't push it too much. However, it's best not to have any high expectations at all, as it's just a phone that's designed to be affordable. Even if it's advertised for having a gaming chipset, its performance failed to impress us. Camera performance is also borderline basic. In our opinion, this phone is best suited for students who are first-time mobile phone users.

Narzo 30A Review – Can it really satisfy the Budget Gamers?
Source: Manila Shaker English
If you are eyeing some budget gaming, you might be confused with other Realme offerings because if we will compare it to the Narzo 20 and Realme C3–which has an entry-level gaming chipset. The Narzo 20 has the same specs but with a better camera and with a higher price while Realme C3 has a lower chipset model but with a triple cam and lower price. Yes a bit confusing but to make it simple, if you’re going to buy the Realme Narzo 30A you’ll get most of the price to the performance and other aspects rather than its camera. 6000mAh battery and gaming chipset is the main attraction for budget phone gamers. So yes, Realme Narzo 30A is a gaming-focused budget phone that is made to focus and satisfy your gaming experience.

realme narzo 30A Review: Deja Vu
Source: Unbox English
With the strong positive feedback on the narzo 20 last year that led it to be sold out in Lazada quickly, our review of the realme narzo 30A shows that the brand is giving a second chance to those who missed on their budget wonder last year. While the cameras are not as stellar, the narzo 30A sticks to its budget gaming phone reputation by having the same set of internals found on the narzo 20–from the processing package, RAM/storage combo, down to the huge 6000mAh battery with a decent 18w wired charging solution.

So if you’re on a strict budget under 7k, but still want a phone that can handle daily multitasking and casual gaming; plus the presence of a headphone port and expandable storage, then the narzo 30A is a very good option. Just remember that this is a Lazada-exclusive deal for the Philippine market, so it will only retail through realme’s official flagship store on Lazada.

80% Realme Narzo 30A Review: Battery Marathoner
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Realme has priced the Narzo 30A under Rs. 10,000 which should make it accessible to a lot of people looking for a decent device on a tight budget. The smartphone offers good overall performance for the price which is more than adequate for general use and a bit of occasional gaming. I found the battery performance to be excellent which is one of the biggest highlights of this smartphone.

80% Realme Narzo 30A review: a capable budget performer
Source: 91mobiles English
For a starting price of Rs 8,999, not too many phones can deliver the kind of performance I have seen on the Narzo 30A. The device also packs in a big battery and can easily last you a while before you need a top-up. You also get a reasonably bright display and the transition to a USB-C port is most welcome. The only aspect where it misses out is the camera performance, especially at night. Design-wise too, the Narzo 30A won’t be turning any heads. Even so, if you are looking for a performance-oriented smartphone with great battery life on a budget, then the Narzo 30A should be at the top of your consideration list.

75% Realme Narzo 30A review: Good budget phone with great battery backup
Source: India Today English
Realme Narzo 30A brings run-of-the-mill specifications that we have seen on several phones before. But this does not mean the hardware on this phone is bad. You have a large display, a decent processor, typically good cameras, and a mammoth battery that will last longer than most other phones would. And all of this is available to you for Rs 8,999, which makes it a good phone. You can check out the Poco M3 for a little extra in the ballpark.

68% Realme Narzo 30A Review: Offers Good Value For Money
Source: Think Digit English
The Narzo 30A is by no means a stand-out phone that changes the game with the sheer value it offers in terms of its hardware or aesthetics. A quick look at the spec sheet will tell you that the device is heavily inspired by last year's Narzo 20 as it shares not only some hardware but is also similar to the previous generation Narzo device when it comes to the display and to an extent even the design. Yet, this does not make the Narzo 30A a bad phone. In fact, in isolation, the device manages to impress both with its overall performance and design. Its cameras do leave a little to be desired, but that's something that is a fair trade-off for the low price point that Realme has launched the Narzo 30A at.
