Pros & Cons

Expert Score
Good things
The Realme 1 has got tons of processing power, courtesy of the Helio P60 processor. Thanks to it, the device has a fast performance. The display is large and it also has excellent quality.
Bad things
The battery backup is less than its competitors. Same goes with the rear camera; though it has a good image quality, it is still not as good as that of its competitors. I also find its UI ugly.

My review.
By Eran Salu • 7 months ago

It is a fantastic phone for the money, and it should be the automatic choice for anyone with a budget of 10-15k. It's completely worth and stretching for the 6GB version, 2GB more RAM and 64GB more storage for 3k extra is a no-brainer. You won't get this screen quality and performance at a lower price than 20k. It is also known as A3 and F7 Youth in other countries, and those phones are priced significantly higher around the 18-20k mark, so Amazon is subsidising us.

1. Great screen. The screens do not get the attention they need on online reviews. A poor screen ruins the experience, and I found the Redmi Note 5 screen has poor colours, was too red and lacks contrast. Most screens below 20k are strictly mediocre and washed out and have a blue tint. The Realme 1 6GB has proper whites and a vibrant display with good colors and saturation. It's much better than other options below 20k. I suspect it's not just an IPS, but an LTPS IPS on the 6GB variant with the screen quality on offer.
2. The Helio P60 is extremely fast. There are no slowdowns. Everything is fluid and quick. Apps, games, everything loads swiftly. It has got all the sensors and connectivity options including 5G, and Wi-Fi. The speed and memory management is excellent, and there is no reloading. PUBG not only plays smoothly, but it looks good with good color saturation.
3. The call and audio quality are excellent all around. On Jio and Airtel, the voice is loud and clear. The speakers are also loud, and they do not sound cheap. There is a certain quality to them. The audio quality from the headphone jack is excellent.
4. The design is modern. It looks good with minimal bezels all around. It's thin and feels good to hold. The touchscreen experience is fluid. It's not cheap from any angle on build quality and the feel. It feels like a mid-tier.
5. The software and OS are fast. The interface is clean and fluid. There is nothing to complain about, and it has all the functions you need. If you don't like the Color OS interface, you can install the 'Rootless Pixel Launcher' for a more standard Android user experience.
6. No Flash Sales nonsense. Pay your hard earned money and get the product. Amazon shows respect for its customers. Others want you to invest your money, but also your time and feel like a chump. Do not encourage such companies. Now with competition and a much superior product, you don't need to put up with this kind of stupidity and malpractice. Please do not encourage unfriendly customer companies.

1. The front and back cameras are strictly average. They are competitive and sometimes even better than other phones in this price range like the Redmi Note 5, but I would have liked a better front camera in 2018. The selfies are decent in good light, but they look a bit dull and lack clarity and contrast. Use the Autotune function in the camera to edit pic function to get significantly better colours and contrast. It should be default as it gives the front camera a better look. The rear camera is much better with good clarity and colour reproduction. But the cameras are not a strong point of the phone that Amazon and Oppo need to address ASAP. Many often think that it's ok, but our life moments are worth more than a few thousands here and there. A good image and the memories can be worth more to you personally than the cost of any phone. Oppo should put better cameras on the phone.
2. You can't root Oppo phones. They do not allow bootloader unlocks, so this is a huge difference from let's say the Xiaomi ecosystem that supports easy rooting and ton of other things. Xiaomi's software engineering and ecosystem are much superior, and Oppo needs to step up here.
3. The missing fingerprint scanner lets down an otherwise solid phone. When you do something like this, the entire conversation in reviews and elsewhere focuses on what's missing instead of what's good. So, this is an own goal from Amazon and Oppo.

PS: The 6GB screen quality seems to be much higher than the 3 and 4GB versions so considering those one should prefer the 6GB for a better screen. It's whiter while the 4GB is slightly bluer. The 4GB screen is not low quality or anything; it's an IPS with excellent and vibrant colours in videos. And in general, it is much better than other phones below 20k. But the 6GB has better whites and an all round great screen.

Good phone at a cheap price.

Good phone at a low price, but there are some issues in this phone, i.e., it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor, and the face unlock feature doesn't work at night/low light.

Review after a half an hour usage.
By Prabhas Sadasivam • 8 months ago

I received the product on 5 Jun'18. To my disappointment, I found that the available RAM is only 1.2GB out of 3GB RAM. I did not insert SIM, memory card, and did not add anything. I just opened the box as received, switched it on and tested how much RAM is available. The selfie camera quality wouldn't be 8MP; it's must be lesser than that.

Portable DSLR.
By engineer sahab • 7 months ago

Realme 1 is the best phone in terms of the camera as its 13-megapixel camera clicks natural pictures.

Good phone.
By gundapk • 8 months ago

I received 32GB and 3GB RAM version on 9th Jun. The screen and the camera are super, but I've spent a little high. If it's available under Rs. 8,000, then it's good value for money.
