The Realme 3 merits a consideration if you are in the hunt for a capable mid-ranger at a budget price and can overlook some of its deficiencies. While the competition does offer better specs in some areas, the Realme 3 seeks to offer a better overall smartphone usage experience for the dough.

With a powerful camera, nippy performance, great battery life and an included fast charger, the Realme 3 Pro makes a great impression. This is only slightly dulled by a micro USB port, no NFC and divisive software.

TrustedReviews

The Realme 3 Pro may be an underdog, but it’s an all-rounder with a standout camera for the price, not to mention very fast charging too. Provided you can get past the plastic body, micro USB port and lack of NFC, the rest of the smartphone delivers nothing short of excellent value.

Even if the Realme 3 Pro ended up being a so-so first effort, more choice at this end of the price bracket was always going to be a good thing. Fortunately, the Realme 3 Pro’s feature-rich package provides an exceedingly tempting proposition for the cash. In fact, it’s even good enough to topple the Moto G7 Power off the throne as our favourite sub-£200 smartphone. All in all, that’s quite an achievement.

The look and feel aren’t very premium, but still, it’s very difficult to complain if you keep the entire package in mind. The handset offers impressive battery mileage, pleasant display, and lowlight camera performance are other significant positives. The UI is the biggest drawback that Realme needs to fix ASAP.

An excellent phone considering its price

from Stuff

It combines a fantastic screen and a stellar camera for the price, with an all-day battery and ample power too. Rounding off the experience with a stable, smart UI, and while it doesn’t feel as rich as some of the competition, we would still recommend the Realme 3 Pro to just about anyone after a high-quality, affordable experience.

The Realme 3 Pro certainly lives up to the “Pro” moniker. It’s significantly more powerful and faster than the regular Realme 3, but that’s not its competition. The Realme  3 Pro’s closest rival is the Redmi Note 7 Pro. To be fair, both phones are incredible close in terms of both performance and camera. The Realme 3 Pro is perhaps the best gaming phone under Rs 15,000, and as a result, it is the perfect alternative to the Redmi Note 7 Pro which is focused more on the camera.

Pocket-lint

A decent phone for the money

from Pocket-lint

At just £179 you get a lot of features, a great screen, big battery and fast charging in a phone that's nice to look at. Realme's biggest problem, we think, is going to be brand recognition. It's new to the UK and Europe, and - even though Oppo has launched here - its mothership brand is still new too.
