Realme 10 Review

The Realme 10 has a fairly familiar design that's easy to identify. The Clash White colour option that we recieved looks subtle and does a good job of hiding fingerprints and smudges on the polycarbonate back panel Design

The handset sports a 6.4" FHD+ AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, and up to 1,000nits brightness. The colours look punchy, sharp, and vibrant in their default settings. High-res video content on streaming platforms look excellent on this Widevine L1-certified display. That said, the phone's bezels are not razer thin. Display

The Realme 10 sports a 50MP + 2MP B&W dual-camera setup. Images have plenty of details with good contrast and dynamic range, while the colours look punchy and lively. The HDR does well not to over sharpen the highlights, but the AI mode greatly boosts colour saturation. Rear Camera

The Realme 10 packs a 16MP snapper in the punch-hole. The camera captures decent selfies when the sun is out. The skin tone looks accurate, while facial detailing is acceptable for its class. Front Camera

The Realme 10 is powered by the octa-core MediaTek Helio G99 SoC, which is paired with a 4G modem. It does well to keep up with typical usage and handles pretty much every basic task thrown at it. You can get it in 4GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB Storage. Hardware

Software-wise, the Realme 10 feels a bit dated. Unlike its Pro+ sibling, this handset runs Android 12-based Realme UI 3.0 out of the box instead of Android 13. The things that bugged us the most were bloatware and push notifications. We accidentally opened some pre-installed video-sharing app were then swarmed with notifications. software

The Realme 10 rocks a 5,000mAh battery, which can easily last a day between charges. Battery

The handset supports 33W SuperVooc fast charging that can juice up a dead battery to 100 percent in a little more than an hour. Charging Speed

The Realme 10 price in India starts at Rs 13,999. For a sub-Rs 14,000 price tag, the Realme 10 appears to be a solid option despite a few shortcomings such as lack of 5G support. Had it offered the latest software and better camera hardware, the Realme 10 would have been the device to beat in the segment. verdict
