realme has made its name in the East Asian market as one of the go-to budget and mid-range smartphone brands. The company has maintained its value-for-money proposition and always brought something unique for the users. In line with their innovative lineup, realme recently launched the 11x 5G in India on 30th August 2023. The device brings a revamped design with a new processor. Let’s have a detailed look at realme 11x 5G and see what else has changed from the previous iteration. Key Specifications of realme 11x 5G Design and Build Quality realme launched the 11 and 11x as the direct successor to their highly popular realme 10. It seems this year, the brand is trying to bring unison in all their lineups ranging from the GT, Narzo as well as the C series. The overarching design element brings a flat design which realme is calling their S-curve Gradient Design with a large camera housing on the back. The 11x comes with a plastic back, aluminum frame, and glass front protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The back panel has a distinct refractive frosted finish that gives it a glass-like look. From the looks of it, the device exudes premium quality all around. There’s nothing to worry about accidental smudges or scratches as the device comes with a clear case on the box.

All the ports and buttons are standard on the 11x with the power button which doubles as the physical fingerprint scanner, volume rocker, Type-C charging port, and the ever-important headphone jack. There’s a dedicated slot for the micro SDXC which is another useful addition as the user can now have dual stand-by sims. Overall the design and the build quality of the 11x is impressive. It doesn’t quite feel like a sub-250 USD device by the looks and that’s probably one of its strong suits. The Display The display on the realme 11x is an IPS LCD one with 6 level refresh rate. The choice of an LCD panel might be a deterrent for many but the panel itself doesn’t fall very short of AMOLED competitors. The 6.72-inch Dynamic Ultra Smooth panel has an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. This brings the pixel density on the 20:9 aspect ratio to 392 ppi. As the specs suggest, the panel is a sharp and crisp one that will suffice for most users. Read more: Walton Xanon X20 Review: Is it a value-for-money gaming phone? Additionally, the display has a 120 Hz refresh rate, 550 nits of typical brightness, and 680 nits of HBM. The HBM allows for perfect legibility under direct sunlight even though it is an LCD panel. Like other entry-level budget smartphones, the display unfortunately doesn’t have a symmetrical design. The lower chin reduces the screen-to-body ratio to 86.6%. Regardless, it doesn’t look out of place thanks to the sleek colors and the updated center punch hole design. Overall, the display won’t compete with an AMOLED panel. But in effect, users would be hard-pressed to find faults or lacking in day-to-day use. The Camera The large circular camera housing on the back holds the dual sensors of the 11x. The sensors and the LED flashlight have been placed in such a way that it looks like an emoji face up close. The main sensor is a 64 MP f/1.79 wide-angle shooter with 25.1 mm focal length. The supporting sensor is a 2 MP depth sensor which aids in portrait shots. Read more: Benco S1 Pro Review: Elegance within Budget Smartphones under 250 USD these days tend to skip the ultrawide shooter in favor of an “unnecessary” depth/portrait sensor. While on paper the 11x is a dual camera device, in effect, users will be using the single main sensor only. Coming to the picture quality, the performance of the main sensor in daylight was excellent. There was decent clarity in each frame with good dynamic range and details. The edge detection was also pretty good. However, pictures taken in portrait mode sometimes appeared to be a bit softer than the standard 1x shots. But in most cases, the camera did an excellent job of capturing perfect daylight pictures. The picture quality also maintains consistency in low light or artificial lighting conditions. The camera captures the exposures well depending on the lighting scenario. There were not any noticeable grains or softness except for photos taken in extreme dark conditions. Read more: Vivo V27 5G Review: Is it worth buying? The front camera is an 8 MP AI shooter with an f/2.05 aperture. It produces passable results for social media and casual selfies, nothing beyond that. The videography on the realme 11x is limited to 1080P at 30 fps. realme could’ve easily pushed the videography to at least up to 4K. But the lack of EIS or OIS somewhat ties down the prospect of stable higher-resolution videos. Overall, the camera is easily the star of the device here as it packs a punch above the rest in its price range. Read more: Oppo Reno10 5G Review: Is it a balanced phone? Processor and Performance The realme 11x boasts an all-new chipset from MediaTek. The Dimensity 6100+ based on the 6 Nm architecture is the latest lower mid-range processor from MediaTek which they introduced in their flagship Dimensity lineup. It’s like how Snapdragon moved to the 7 Gen series to streamline its processors. In comparison, the Dimensity 6100+ can be considered slightly below the Snapdragon 695 and slightly above the Snapdragon 680. The octa-core processor has 2 2.2 GHz Cortex-A76 & 6 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 chip design with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. The performance of the processor was just as expected from an entry-level or lower mid-range processor. It's hard to categorize the processor in a single group as the performance level is thinning at each level with each new processor iteration. Read more: Infinix GT 10 Pro 5G Review: Is it a capable gaming phone? The processor performed well in 3D titles like Genshin Impact, PUBG, COD, and Asphalt 9. Genshin Impact and PUBG were producing constant frames in mid-settings. A higher setting caused occasional frame drops here and there. But for day-to-day casual use, the device breezes through everything much in part due to the smooth animations and the 120 Hz display. The 6/8 GB of onboard RAM can be coupled with another 8GB of dynamic RAM converted from the ROM space. The processor is coupled with the realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13. The UI has its share of bloatware but they can always be uninstalled at the user’s discretion. Overall, the performance of the device is exactly what you’d expect from a utilitarian smartphone. Battery and Charge Time The realme 11x has a 4880 mAh battery on board. The battery is coupled with 33W SUPERVOOC charging. It can take the device from 1 to 50% in just 29 minutes. In the test, the device was consistently churning out around 6 to 7 hours of SoT with normal use.

Read more: realme C51 Review: Stylish Phone Under BDT 16000 Price of realme 11X The realme 11x is available in two variants – the 6/128 GB one and an 8/128 GB one. The base variant comes in at 14,999 INR whereas the 8/128 GB comes in at 15,999 INR. The price roughly translates to about 19,822 BDT and 21,143 BDT respectively. However, due to tax and other issues the price may differ once it becomes officially available in Bangladesh. Verdict The realme 11x is another budget-friendly smartphone aimed at budget buyers. The device brings a great battery, excellent camera, a capable processor, and a revamped design that looks premium and sleek beyond its price point. On the flip side, the video performance could’ve been a bit better considering the 64 MP main shooter on board. So who is this device for? The device is aimed at anyone looking for a device that brings an amalgamation of performance and price. The realme 11x 5G is not a high-performance device by any means, but it can be a good choice as a daily driver smartphone.

Read more: Honor 90 Review: A New Standard in Midrange Aesthetics In terms of specifications, the realme C51 offers a user-friendly and stylish package.

Read more: September 2023 New Smartphone Release: Top 10 Most Anticipated Phones in Bangladesh The IPS LCD technology ensures accurate color reproduction, while the 90Hz refresh rate offers smoother scrolling and improved responsiveness. With a peak brightness of 560 nits, the screen remains visible even in well-lit environments. Additionally, the multi-touch capability adds to the device's usability, enabling precise interaction with apps and content. The realme C51's 85.5% screen-to-body ratio minimizes bezels.
The narzo line of smartphones from realme offers the perfect basic to mid-range smartphones in the Android platform. The line has brought incredible value-for-money deals in the budget-friendly category. Similar to last year, realme launched the narzo 60 on July 15, 2023 in India. Since the launch, the narzo 60 has created a hype. Let’s find out whether the specs, features and price of realme narzo 60 can fulfill the expectations of tech enthusiasts. Key Features of realme narzo 60 Design and Build Quality Like every other narzo iteration, the narzo 60 also brings a completely new design this year. The new design somewhat resembles the Huawei Mate series with a flat back and circular camera housing. The phone itself is plastic all around. The frame has a chrome finish which looks like metal until it is held in hand. The back panel has an inner gradient texture that reflects and refracts light. There is also a version with an eco-leather back. The front glass is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 for added safety against drops and scratches. Dimension wise the phone is completely flat with flat edges. It helps a lot in holding or using the phone on a surface. Read more: Walton Walpad 8G Review: Worth buying? narzo 60 comes in at 159.8 x 72.9 x 7.9 mm with 182 gm weight. The dimension and weight make it an easily manageable device. It isn’t quite a one-handed phone but it's sufficiently small by today’s standards. The ports and button choices are fairly standard. There’s a power and volume button on the right and a hybrid sim slot on the left. The top houses the secondary noise cancellation mic. The Type C port, primary mic, and headphone jack are located at the bottom. The choice of a hybrid sim slot means users will either have to forego the second sim or add micro SDXC. This shouldn’t be a problem considering the base variant comes in at 128 GB storage. Overall, the design of the narzo 60 is new and refreshing. The build quality is also on par with the industry standards of this budget. But the lack of IP rating might be a deal breaker for some users. Read more: iQOO Neo 7 Pro Review: Is it worth its price tag? The Display The display on the narzo 60 is a Super AMOLED panel with 1080P resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. Surprisingly, realme was able to pack in a high refresh rate AMOLED panel at this price point. The display itself is a 6.43-inch panel with an 85.7% screen-to-body ratio. The 20:9 aspect ratio on the screen is good enough for 409 ppi. The panel itself looks crisp and sharp without noticeable color shifts at extreme angles. Though the brightness could have been a bit better, especially for outdoor usage. There is also a large chin at the bottom which might be off-putting for many. But considering the price and the actual performance of the panel, this display is a very good bargain. Read more: TECNO CAMON 20 Review: Is it worth buying? The Camera There is a dual camera setup on the large circular camera housing on the back. The main sensor is a 64 MP one with f/1.8 aperture and a 25 mm wide lens. There is only PDAF support on the camera module. No OIS or EIS is present. The secondary sensor is a 2 MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The main camera does all the heavy lifting with the depth sensor aiding in the portrait shots. Pictures from the main camera came out pretty well under direct sunlight. The wide lens allows for better light and dynamic range capture.
realme C53 is another budget-friendly device from the youth-focused smartphone brand. The phone was officially released in the Bangladesh market on July 23, 2023. This smartphone stands out from its competitors with its segment's first 108 MP camera, offering users an incredible photography experience. Let’s find out more on C53 key specs, pros, cons, and price in Bangladesh. Key features and Specs of realme C53 Design The realme C53 sports a design that may look familiar to those who have followed the brand's smartphone releases. The overall dimension of the phone is 167.3 x 76.7 x 7.5 mm. The phone weighs only 182g. Constructed with plastic material, the phone features a dual-tone design at the back, with the top portion boasting a glossy finish and the bottom has a matte texture. The device comes in various colors, and while the Champion Gold variant may be too glittery for some, the Champion Black variant would have been a preferred choice for many due to its more subdued appearance. Although the camera rings for the 108MP+B&W sensors and LED flash add a distinct look to the device, they protrude significantly from the surface, causing some instability when typing on a flat surface. Despite this, the realme C53 feels ergonomic to hold with its flat edges and lightweight design. Read more: Nothing Phone 2 Review: Can it outperform its predecessor? Display The realme C53 boasts a 6.74-inch IPS LCD LCD screen, offering a resolution of 1080 x 2400. The display features a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a teardrop notch at the top. The C53's screen exhibits brightness and vividness, but this holds true only when viewed head-on. Upon tilting or observing it from different angles, there is an apparent decline in color reproduction and overall quality. The 1080 x 2400 IPS LCD resolution results in a mere 390 ppi density. In 2023, it has almost become customary for smartphones to have, at the very least, a 1080p display. It becomes even more perplexing to consider that the C53's sibling, the realme C55, offers a higher FHD+ resolution. In real-world usage, pixels are more discernible on the C55's lower-resolution screen. One does become accustomed to both the slightly less sharp display and the less-than-stellar viewing angles over time, but in all honesty, it is an oversight on realme's part.

This imparts a smoother and more responsive experience when navigating the phone and the UI, exceeding expectations.
Marques Brownlee, more commonly known as MKBHD, the famous tech YouTuber once said, “Cheap phones are getting good and good phones are getting cheaper”. A look into the current market of smartphones also reveals the same. Among the mid-range releases this year, the Samsung Galaxy A54 and the realme 11 Pro+ stand out as great phones that are surprisingly inexpensive. So which is the better buy? Let’s find out. Samsung Galaxy A54 vs realme 11 Pro+: Key Differences Design and Build Quality The design of the two phones couldn’t be more different than they are. Both of them have a plastic frame but the A54 edges out in the sense that it has a glass back. However, the 11 Pro+ is not slack as there’s a choice of faux leather back to bring flagship-like premium looks. The A54 looks minimalistic with a frosted back, vertical camera housing, and a simple Samsung engraving. On the other hand, the 11 Pro+ has a very busy back with a vertical stripe, rounded camera housing, and contrasting colors. The 11 Pro+ is a clear winner here when it comes to design. Read more: Infinix Note 30 Pro 5G Review: Powerful camera at an affordable price The 11 Pro+ comes in at 161.6 x 73.9 x 8.2 mm with the A54 coming in at 158.2 x 76.7 x 8.2 mm. Even though the A54 is a bit smaller than the 11 Pro Plus it is slightly heavier at 202 gm compared to 183 gm or 189 gm (leather) of the 11 Pro+. The Gorilla Glass protection on the A54 is complemented by IP67 water and dust resistance. None of these are present on the 11 Pro+. The external features on both devices are more or less the same. Except the A54 comes with micro SDXC support on the shared sim slot. When it comes to design, things are pretty much subjective. But as for the build quality and protection, the A54 slightly edges out the 11 Pro+. The Display It’s often difficult to beat Samsung in the display category. But the 11 Pro+ comes pretty close. Both devices come with an AMOLED panel with 1B color, 120 Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and HBM. Read more: Walton NEXG N70 Review: Unlocking the Budget-Friendly Phone The display on the 11 Pro+ is slightly taller at 6.7 inches compared to the 6.4 inches on the A54. The taller display also accounts for a peculiar 20:9 aspect ratio. That brings the 1080P display ppi to 394 compared to the 403 ppi on the A54. But the curved panel on the 11 Pro+ accounts for a 90.5% screen-to-body ratio. Compared to the 11 Pro+, the bezel might look larger on the A54 with an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio. Ultimately, the display of the A54 prevails over the 11 Pro+ with crisper color, better sharpness, and a slightly better HBM. The Camera The camera module on the A54 and 11 Pro+ has very contrasting specs and even more contrasting performance in an unexpected way. Let’s clarify. Both devices come with a triple camera module. The A54 has a 50 MP main sensor, 12 MP ultrawide, and 5 MP macro shooter. On the other hand, the 11 Pro Plus has a whooping 200 MP main sensor, 8 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP macro. Read more: TECNO CAMON 20 Review: Is it worth buying? Performance-wise, both devices are on par. Pictures look crisp and detailed in daylight with decent dynamic range. Not to mention, in many cases megapixel counts mean nothing. Both the cameras performed well in low light but the Samsung takes an edge with more consistent exposures. The videography of the 11 Pro+ has the highest capacity of 4K at 30 fps with the slo-mo being pushed up to 960 fps at 720P. The A54 can really match the ultra slo-mo of the 11 Pro+ as it maxes out at 480 fps. However, 4K at 30 fps is also present on the A54. The front camera is the same 32 MP shooter in both devices which is good enough for casual selfies and reels. Processor and Performance The processor on the Galaxy A54 is the proprietary Exynos 1380 based on a 5 Nm architecture with a chip design of 4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A55. On the other hand, the 11 Pro+ comes with MediaTek Dimensity 7050 based on a 6 Nm architecture with a chip design of 2x2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 & 6x2.0 GHz Cortex-A55. Read more: Tecno Camon 20 Pro Review: Can it fulfill the users’ expectations? Both the devices are powered by Mali G68 GPU with the A54 having the MP5 variant and the 11 Pro+ with the MC4 variant respectively. In real-life performance, both devices are on par with each other. Both are based on Android 13 with a snappy interface. But in terms of UI, the One UI takes an edge over the Realme UI. The high refresh rate on both devices makes it a treat to interact with the device. For casual use, any of these two would more than suffice. In terms of high-end gaming, the story is also somewhat similar. Both the devices can run graphics-intensive games like PUBG, COD, Asphalt 9, and Genshin Impact perfectly in mid settings and with some occasional frame drops here and there at max settings. The devices don’t do a very good job of heat dissipating as they tend to heat up after 30-odd minutes of continued gaming. The heating is more apparent on the A54 as it has a glass back. Read more: Top 10 Smartphones Coming to Bangladesh in July 2023 Overall, both devices are capable performers when it comes to the performance side of things. Battery and Charge Time Perhaps the biggest difference between the two devices is in the battery department. The Galaxy A54 has a 5000 mAh battery and so does the 11 Pro+. So where is the difference? It has an impressive charge speed of 100W on 11 Pro+. Compared to that, the A54 falls way short with just 25W fast charging.

realme 11 series smartphones have already got popularity for combining latest features and smart looks under affordable price ranges. realme 11 Pro Plus is the latest addition to this series. It was launched on May 10 in China. Though being a mid-range smartphone, realme 11 Pro+ offers some exclusive features like the flagship devices. Let’s see what's special about this phone. Key Features of realme 11 Pro+ Design and Display Featuring a front-panel punch-hole cutout and a quad-camera setup on the rear, the realme 11 Pro Plus is a fully-loaded device.

The device features a glass front, providing a smooth and polished appearance, while the back is available in options of either leather or plastic. Additionally, the realme 11 Pro Plus comes with a durable plastic frame, ensuring sturdiness and protection. Read more: Motorola Edge 40 Review: Is it a flagship killer? The phone will be available in three color variations, Black, Green, and Gold. Camera It comes with a triple camera setup on the back 200 MP wide camera, 8 MP ultra-wide, and 2 MP macro lens. But the star of the show is the 200 MP main camera, which utilizes Samsung’s ISOCELL HP3 sensor. Despite realme and Samsung being direct competitors in the mid-range phone market, the two companies collaborated closely to enhance the camera performance specifically for the realme device, as per their marketing claims. The realme 11 Pro Plus attaches the power of its 200MP camera to deliver impressive capabilities. One notable feature is the utilization of 16-in-1 pixel binning, which enables the device to generate a 12.5MP image that contains 16 times more information than a typical 12MP photo. This innovative technology allows the camera to capture significantly brighter images, surpassing what would typically be expected from a sensor of its compact size. Read more: Xiaomi Poco F5 Pro 5G Review: What’s new? Another notable capability of the realme 11 Pro Plus is its ability to leverage all 200 million pixels and employ in-sensor cropping to create “zoom” photos that maintain a remarkable level of detail and sharpness. realme takes pride in highlighting that its phone is the sole device within its price range to offer true in-sensor crop functionality, a feature previously exclusive to more expensive smartphones like the iPhone 14 Pro and Xiaomi’s flagship models. Despite all those impressive features, the realme 11 Pro Plus doesn’t have a dedicated zoom lens. But you can zoom up to 4x with the regular lens, and it is quite notable. In addition, the realme 11 Pro Plus is equipped with a 32 MP front camera. Overall the camera system provides a wide array of features, including AI capabilities, Night Mode, Slow-motion, Portrait Mode, Panorama, Burst mode, Face Beauty, QR Code scanning, Display Flash, HDR, Flashlight, as well as hybrid zoom, optical image stabilization, and support for up to 1080P video recording.

The phone is available in three storage variations 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB. However, all the variations come with 12 GB RAM.

The phone was officially launched in Bangladesh on April 2, 2023. Let's take a look at key specifications, pros, cons, and prices of relame C55 in Bangladesh. Key Features of realme C55 Design The realme C55 is a smartphone that boasts a 6.7-inch display with a screen protector applied during manufacturing, which is a nice added feature considering its affordable price range. It measures 165.6 x 75.9 x 7.89 mm or 6.51 x 2.98 x 0.31 inches and weighs 189.5 grams or 0.41 pounds, making it less ideal for individuals with small hands. The ‘Rainy Night’ or black version has an elegant appearance, especially with the design of the camera system. The back of the phone is made of plastic, which tends to accumulate dust quickly and feels slippery. The phone's left side has only the SIM tray and the punching hole, while the right side has the Power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner and the Volume rocker.

Although it lacks Gorilla Glass for display protection and dust or water resistance, the realme C55's design gives an impression of a more expensive smartphone. Display The display of the realme smartphone is an economy model and uses a conventional IPS LCD. However, the 6.72-inch display is average, and the colors are easy on the eye. The IPS screen is even better than some newer models in 2023, except for the white color slightly darkening when tilted. The screen's peak brightness is 680 nits, which is enough to use the phone outdoors on a sunny day. Interestingly, the minimum brightness is only 2 nits, making it perfect for nighttime use without disturbing others. The screen offers several color display modes, including Vivid, Natural mode, and Pro, with two more modes available in the latter for finer color reproduction.

However, the auto mode tends to use 60Hz more often, conserving battery life. The screen options include light/dark themes, screen color mode selection, vision protection, auto-rotate, auto-off, refresh rate selection, display/hide front camera cutout, and full-screen mode for non-optimized apps. Camera The realme C55 smartphone, despite being a budget device, manages to exceed expectations with its camera setup. It features a 64-megapixel primary rear camera and a 2-megapixel sensor. It also offers an 8MP selfie camera. Both the primary rear sensor and the front sensor perform well under broad daylight. Switching to the 64 MP mode, there is a slight improvement in capturing details, which may not be noticeable at first glance but is apparent upon closer inspection. The Bokeh Flare Portrait mode and AI Color Portrait mode, however, tend to mess up the edges of the focused objects. Read More: Vivo V27e Review: Worth its price tag?

If you’re buying the device from China, it’ll come in a large commemorative box complete with a realme memento made in collaboration with the signature Coca-Cola red theme. If you’re getting the retail box, you’ll still get a great deal of stuff inside other than the device itself.

However, the entire Coca-Cola collaboration is evident on the back. There is a half-cut Coca-Cola signature on the back in the traditional white-on-red drape. The other third of the back is matte black vertical to the camera housing. The camera module also gets two distinct red bands around the sensors to make the collaboration even more prominent. All the ports and buttons are standard from the realme 10 Pro 5G. The 3.5 mm headphone jack stays on for another generation, being placed right beside the USB Type C port. The power button which also doubles as the fingerprint scanner is placed on the right side of the device along with the volume rockers. Overall, the unique appeal of the limited edition is on full display on the back. If you’re planning to flaunt the device, we suggest you go caseless or go for a clear case option.

Even though it is an LCD panel, realme has done an amazing job at tweaking the panel for vibrancy. The high peak brightness and the 120 Hz refresh rate also enhance the display quality further. We tested the normal brightness to be around 600 nits with the HBM kicking it up to 680 nits under direct sunlight. The high refresh rate and the vivid colors make the 10 Pro an ideal media consumption device. We can guarantee you, the display interaction with this device would be top-notch for the budget.

This necessitates the use of a protective cover to prevent smudges from appearing on the phone. With its curved display, realme outperforms all of its rivals in the same price range. The device's very small bezels were one of its distinguishing features. Combining the ultra-symmetrical curvy front and back layout with side bezels as tiny as 1.41mm and a bottom bezel as small as 2.33mm produces a bezel-free viewing experience.

In addition, 800 nits of peak brightness are offered, which significantly improves the viewing experience even in direct sunlight. The curved display makes multimedia consumption on the device more enjoyable. The panel is very well-tuned since it displays beautiful colors with a wide dynamic range and excellent contrast.

Obviously, it also increases power consumption. Camera The rear of the realme 10 Pro Plus has three cameras. The main rear camera of the realme 10 Pro+ is a 108MP (f/1.8) Samsung (S5K) HM6 1/1.67′′ sensor with 0.64m pixels and a Nona-Pixel color filter. While the number of megapixels has increased since the previous model, realme has eliminated Optical Image Stabilization, which affects handheld photos taken in low light.

Read More: 10 Top Budget Smartphones Released in 2022 The main back camera captures 12MP images that are adequate out of the box. The camera has captured acceptable levels of contrast, color, and detail. If you're curious about the dynamic range, it is neither poor nor exceptional. Surprisingly, the 16MP (f/2.5) front sensor performs well in both low-light and bright-light environments. It captures well-exposed selfies with precise color reproduction. The information are rather vague, but still sufficient for social media sharing. Performance The realme 10 Pro Plus is powered by a MediaTek MT6877V Diminutive 1080 CPU 6nm with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 2.2 storage.

However, increasing the parameters to high has a noticeable impact on the performance. In addition, the device boots the realme UI 4.0 operating system based on the Android 13 operating system. It is one of the few non-Google phones that launch Android 13 out of the box. The software has several features, such as always-on-display, fingerprint, themes, scanning animations, media technology controls, and dynamic widgets. There are choices such as Dual Mode audio, Heart Rate, Sleep Capsule Measurement, etc. The prevalence of bloatware on the realme gadget is one of the biggest software downsides to be aware of, despite the fact that the device's feature set is flawless. Battery The realme 10 Pro+ is powered by a battery that has a capacity of 5000 mAh and allows rapid charging at 67 watts. The amount of power that it used from the battery was pretty optimal. The gadget lost between 8% and 10% of its battery life when viewing YouTube videos at the maximum quality setting for an hour. While running intense games, the usage increased to 14% per hour.
