Realme Narzo 50A Review – Is it the Best Choice for Budget Gamers?
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Realme Narzo 50A is an excellent choice for nonstop gaming due to its large 6000mAh battery. It costs P7,990 for 4GB/64GB, but the storage capacity is insufficient for those who want to install more than six heavy games. The Realme Narzo lineup hasn’t seen much improvement over the course of the year, but when compared to its predecessor, it has improved in terms of design and primary rear camera. It now has a 50MP primary camera, a macro lens, and increased brightness. The Helio G85 gaming processor and a massive 6000mAh battery are still present. This means upgrading to the Narzo 50A will result in sharper images. If you’re on a tight budget but still want to play competitive games, the Realme Narzo 50A is one of the best options.

realme Narzo 50a – Longest Battery Life in a Smartphone under P8k
Source: Manila Shaker English
Overall, the price of the realme Narzo 50A is 7,990 for 4GB and 64GB. Albeit the storage is kinda inadequate for some who want to install more than 6 heavy games. However, if you are a budget gamer looking for a phone that can play MOBA and FPS games smoothly, the realme Narzo 50A takes a different approach than other entry-level smartphones in its price range. The 6000mAh battery provides significantly more playtime than the average smartphone, and the camera is an added bonus. It can be used for hiking and other outdoor activities and will still provide enough juice after about a day or so. realme Narzo 50A has the longest battery life when compared to other phones in its price range, consider it one of your options.

Realme Narzo 50A Review: Not Bad Mid-Range Smartphone in 2021
Source: Awaqua English
After several days of active testing of the Realme Narzo 50A smartphone, I have positive, but also negative impressions. I understand that this is not a flagship device, so there is no need to expect great features. First of all, I can highlight a good design in appearance, and especially the corrugated plastic used. During my testing, there were no finger marks or any other annoyances on its surface. I also liked the good performance for everyday use. Yes, the device is capable of running even complex games like Genshin Impact, but it’s better to play simpler games like PUBG Mobile. As for the camera, the main 50 megapixel module showed itself from a good side. I also liked the battery life. That is, the device can easily work for two days with active use. Of the minuses, I can single out this lack of an ultra wide camera module. I also didn’t like the time it takes to fully charge the battery, and the 720p screen resolution may cause some discomfort for some people. Although during my test, even the HD resolution was not very different from the Full HD resolution.

Alright, so let’s talk about the price. The realme narzo 50A is available for PHP 7,990. With a few extra bucks, comparing it to its cheaper, turned down sibling, the 30A, we think that the narzo 50A is a better deal considering that you’ll get a larger 6,000mAh battery, a much decent processor, and a much more versatile camera. Thus, making this device recommendable to those consumers whose eyeing a smartphone under PHP 10k. And by the way, if you are planning on getting this device, it will be exclusively available on Lazada on their 11.11 event and will have a PHP 1,000 discount with free shipping when purchased on that date.

realme narzo 50A Review Philippines: Entry-Level Gaming Challenger
Source: Unbox English
While it is let down by a very dated display, our review of the realme narzo 50A shows that the brand is sticking to what works when it comes to the highly competitive budget gaming segment in the Philippines. The 50-megapixel main rear camera upgrade is very much welcome, though we hope realme optimizes the software to make the most out of it.

70% Realme Narzo 50A Review: Big on Battery Life, but Is That Enough?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Despite its issues, the Realme Narzo 50A could still be a good smartphone if all you need is top-tier battery life, and you only run basic apps. However, it's hard to ignore the competition, most of which deliver better performance and hardware at similar prices. The Infinix Hot 11S offers a full-HD+ 90Hz refresh rate display, smooth software, and dual speakers at Rs. 10,999. There's also the Redmi 10 Prime (Review), which offers a better video streaming experience with support for Widevine L1, stereo speakers, four rear cameras, and a 6,000mAh battery, and costs Rs. 11,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant.

Now, the question is whether the Realme Narzo 50A is worth buying or not. From a general point of view, the camera quality and battery keep the standards, while the processing section looks a little underwhelming. But this factor can be overlooked considering that the phone is a budget phone. Overall the Narzo 50A is a decent choice of general uses. In short, if you are looking for an entry-level phone that offers a great worth of money, you can go with the Realme Narzo 50A. But if you are looking for an alternative option, you can consider the TCL 20R smartphone while the final decision is up to you.

The Realme Narzo 50A is a good phone for its price. And it ticks most of the right boxes. Big display? Check. Good processor? Check. Long-lasting battery? Check. All of that is reasonable enough to make the Narzo 50A a compelling option on the market. And for Rs 11,499, I think it is the right investment.

realme Narzo 50A Hands-on and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme Narzo 50A offers a large battery, a good camera on-board, and decent performance. For Narzo 30A owners, you will mainly get a better camera upgrade while most things remain the same, but the good thing is it now comes in a 128 GB storage variant and the base one starts with 64 GB storage. The RAM is no longer 3 GB, but 4 GB and lastly, the realme UI 2.0 with Android 11 out-of-the-box.

70% Realme Narzo 50a review: all about that camera?
Source: 91mobiles English
The Realme Narzo 50a relies on its camera as a driving point in the face of intense competition from the likes of Xiaomi and Infinix. You do get pretty decent shots from the device but the other aspects of the Narzo 50a are not exceptional in any way. As a matter of fact, the lack of a higher refresh rate panel and absence of WideVine L1 certification can be deal-breakers for some. That said, it deserves a recommendation for its rather good camera performance in daylight scenarios, satisfactory performance, and long battery life…. and that, for many, should suffice anyway,

Model:

The latest to join the Realme’s super affordable Narzo range of smartphones is the Narzo 50A. This is the successor to the Narzo 30A, which was released in February this year. In terms of its design and build, this phone features a design that is both familiar and unique. However, it does come with a waterdrop notch, slightly thick bezels, and a noticeable broad chin on the front, all of which were normally seen on smartphones of this kind before. The back part of the Narzo 50A is made of matte polycarbonate with a diagonal stripe design underneath the camera bump. There is a huge rectangular camera module that lies on the top left. Interestingly, the fingerprint scanner on the back has been merged with the camera module, which increases its overall size. On the other hand, the power button and volume rocker are both located on the right side of the device. However, it is worth noting that the power button is comfortably accessible with both hands while the volume rockers need some fiddling. Even though the overall device design is fairly robust and strong, the volume rocker button does feel slightly weak. While the smartphone may appear solid to some, the device is definitely bulky and does not offer very comfortable grip at times.

As for its display, Narzo 50A has been incorporated with a 6.5-inch display with a tear-drop notch which houses the selfie camera. The refresh rate is the standard 60Hz which might become quite apparent while playing the game. The overall brightness output seems to be average with an inconsistent ambient light sensor. It does seem like a drawback for the device. Despite that, the screen display is bright enough to be used outside though. In terms of its performance, this smartphone has been equipped with a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC which runs on Realme UI 2.0 that is based on Android 11. It has been paired with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to 256GB with the use of a microSD card. The processor does support daily activities and playing games without lag. However, the gaming performance might be affected though. As for its camera, the phone comes in with a 50MP primary sensor accompanied by 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro sensor followed by an 8MP selfie camera. The image quality captured by the main camera is quite good. The lens definitely offers fine details with a wide dynamic range when it is used in daytime photography. The colours too do appear to be rather natural. In terms of its battery, this Realme model carries a 6,000Mah battery which can be expected to give around 10 hours of screen time while gaming, streaming or even when surfing social media applications. In a nutshell, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

ARM Mali-G52 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
