Realme 10 Review
Here’s my realme 10 review which is now out in the market featuring a Helio G99 Chipset, 50MP Color AI Camera, 5000mAh Massive Battery, 90Hz Super AMOLED Display, 33W SUPERVOOC Charge, Up to 8GB+8GB Dynamic RAM and priced at Php12,999!
You can check out my initial post and first impressions HERE and then there’s the realme 10 unboxing:
The plastic body has the same type of problems as past units of smartphones from other brands. They tend to be magnets for fingerprints and this one is pretty much the same. But you can get a nice jelly case or protector to solve that little bit of problem. Another issue though that either needs to be accepted is the protruding cameras.
The realme 10 comes with a 6.4 inch screen with a 2400 x 1080P FHD+ (Full HD+) resolution and a 90.8% screen to body ratio. This is perfect specs for running games that requires higher hardware such as Asphalt Legends and Genshin Impact.
And I also want to point out that this smartphone also features a 90hz refresh rate making it smooth when it comes to scrolling down or up. Just like the previous realme model that came before this, it makes it a perfect smartphone. It also features 16.7 Million Colors for its color depth.
In terms of protection, the realme 10 features Corning Gorilla Glass 5, making it quite durable especially when you’ve got butterfingers or slippery hands.
The realme 10 features a 50MP Color AI Camera and a second camera which we’ll discuss later. The primary camera features:
- Focal Length: 26.9mm
- FOV: 77°
- Aperture: f/1.8
- Lens: 5P
- Sensor size: 1/2.76”
The main rear camera features:
- 50MP Mode
- Ultra Steady Video
- Ultra Steady Max Video
- Night Mode
- Panoramic view
- Portrait Mode
- AI Scene Recognition
- AI Beauty, Filter
- Chroma Boost
- Slow Motion
- Bokeh Effect Control
The 2nd camera features a 2MP B&W Camera which features:
- Focal Length: 22.02 mm
- FOV: 88°
- Aperture: f/2.4
- Lens: 3P
- Sensor size: 1/5
Here’s a sample for Street Mode 2.0 for the realme 10.
The phone’s night mode is for me a pain point. It kinda looks good but when you do a closer inspection, not so much.
I kinda look like an AI generated image when using the front camera on Night mode too.
One of the key features for the realme 10 is its ultraboom system which kicks up the sound volume to 200%. This comes in handy when your playing music or going mythical in MOBA games or even first person shooter. Honestly though, not a fan of the volume and sound quality for this phone especially compared to previous model, realme 9 Pro+.
The realme 10 comes equipped with a 5000mAh battery which can really last you an entire day. And when you have the cable and wall charger with you, you can also experience fast charging with the 33W SUPERVOOC Charging. 33 watts is a great number and you can get to full bar of juice in under 30 minutes.
UI and UX
I love how smooth and fresh it operates and that’s thanks to to Helio G99, running on the realme UI version 3, Android 12, 8GB RAM. Its fairly easy to work with and operate.
The realme 10 was a competent smartphone with good quality processor, camera and battery life and quality. The sound needs a bit of working on but it’s serviceable. The camera has a lot of options. Video output quality is also OK but I would have expected. But nothing really to be scared about because these thing can be dealt with subsequent patches and updates!
