You can rely on Realme to deliver flagship killers like 5 Pro for a price that won’t break your bank. And for a brand that’s hardly over a year old, that’s nothing short of impressive. Realme has managed to do what its competitors have been struggling with for years, perhaps even decades – introduce phones packed with exciting, innovative, and flagship offerings but on a budget.

From the looks of it, Realme has continued that spree with its latest release – the Realme 5 Pro. Realme 5 received some major improvements over this year’s Realme 3. Not only is this successor a beast in terms of performance, cameras, and memory configuration, but it’s also drop-dead gorgeous in terms of style.

Despite the upgrades that this fresh release comes equipped with, Realme managed to keep the price tag nearly the same. Let’s take a closer look at why these mid-rangers stand out from the crowd.

Featuring a 6.5 inch IPS display, the Realme 5 features a Snapdragon 665 and comes in 3 different variants of 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64 GB and 4GB/128 GB, based on RAM/storage. Packs a 5000mAh battery but no fast charging. The Back camera boasts a decent 12MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth sensors, whereas there's a 13MP selfie snapper on the front.

Packing a 6.3 inch FHD+ IPS display with a “mini-drop” notch and a bezel-less design, the Realme 5 Pro offers some respectable contrast and colors, which exceed expectations considering this phone’s price bracket. For the optics package, you’re looking at a quad-camera powerhouse with a 48-megapixel primary lens, along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and a pair of 2-megapixel depth and portrait cameras. On the front, you have a 16-megapixel selfie shooter sitting inside the mini-drop notch.

The performance department is where this Pro variant of the mid-range device really outstrips its competition. It’s rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC, coupled with an Adreno 616 GPU to give the hardware some extra ‘oomph’. And as for the memory configuration, this phone comes equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage. It is powered by a 4,035 mAh battery, with support for VOOC v3.0 fast-charging that can charge your phone up to half the capacity in under half an hour.
