Realme 1 Performance
During our review, everything went smoothly in the smartphone. Work like daily tasks such as photos, web browsing, videos of 4 were easily done. Heavy games like Subway Surfer and Asphalt 8 in Realme 1 also ran without interruption. The phone does not get too hot during this time. Realme 1 also beat the Redmi Note 5 Pro in the NTU benchmark rating.
Realme 1 Software
Realme 1 Oppo’s Modified Color runs on OS 5.0, which is on top of the Android 8.1 Oreo. The interface is smooth. The Settings app and Quick launch panel are a little hard. The app drawer has not been given and the Google Now panel has been replaced by a custom screen, with options like weather, stepping, favorite contact, recent events. It is a positive thing that the app of unnecessary will not be found in this. However, the user will get dual app, three-finger screenshot shortcut, theming app and locking gesture. However, nothing has been said about the Android P update in the phone.
Realme 1 Battery
The battery given in Realme 1 is better. In our HD Video Loop Test the handset is backed by 11 hours 30 minutes. If the phone is also used solidly, the charger is required only at 12.1 pm. Realme 1 smartphone does not support quick charging. It takes two and a half to three hours for full charge.
Realme 1 camera
Realme 1 has 13 megapixel rear camera, which comes with single LED flash. The front camera is of 8 megapixels. The company says it can access 296 facial points. There is also Artificial Intelligence feature.
Camera app like iOS can be easily used. There are panoramas, time-laps and an AR sticker. It already has a Featured Pro mode, which helps the user to shutter speed, ISO, exposure, aperture and white balance aggregation. The AI based selfie camera automatically detects skin tone, skin type, age, gender. In our experience, better pictures came from front cameras but there was less light problem. AI beautification is better but some non-essential watercolor comes with the effect.
The camera app took better pictures in good light. In low light it appears to be struggling. AI beautification is better but comes with unwanted watercolor effects. Front and rear, both cameras use Bokeh effect. Photos are not good Edge detection was bad and detail was not good either. The 13-megapixel rear camera captures the pictures with the details but it keeps on dialing. Dynamic range of sensor is poor and it appears to be struggling for auto-focus in detail and low light. The AR stickers have been better applied. A total of 14 stickers can be used through front and rear cameras.
Verdict: Check Realme 1 best or Not
Realme 1 has a unique design, which does not make much sense to everyone. The 6GB RAM, which we reviewed, showed better performance. Battery life is good. Dedicated MicroSD is a card slot and the display is also good. Fingerprint sensor deficiencies, sticky software and average cameras prevent Realme 1 from making the best in its segments. Its 3 GB and 4GB RAM variants are valued for money products. It is certain that Realme 1 has created a little trouble for Xiaomi.
Oppo Realme 1 is offering the brand as a competition to Xiaomi. Oppo says that he will not sell it through Flash cell But it is not clear how many units the company will launch at the first time. Demand is obviously going to be high, in such a situation if the phone gets out of stock then it will not be surprising.
