The realme10 has a large 6.4-inch display that makes it perfect for watching movies, playing games, and browsing the web. Plus, its Full HD+ resolution ensures that you’ll see every detail. Mobile gamers can also rejoice because of its crisp 90Hz refresh rate.
A decent camera
The realme 10’s camera can be a great tool to take quality photos. The rear 50MP color AI camera takes decent photos in a variety of lighting conditions, and the 2MP black and white lens adds depth and detail to your shots. For selfie lovers, it’s got the 16MP front-facing camera.
Take note, however, that the phone doesn’t have much in terms of video stabilization, so it’s not ideal for taking on-the-go footage. And though it does have a Night mode, photos taken in low light do have some graininess.
Long-lasting battery life
With a 5,000mAh battery, the realme10 can easily last all day on a single charge. Plus, its 33W fast charging feature means you can quickly top up your phone when you’re running low on battery. It can even charge from 0% to 50% in just under 30 minutes!
Plenty of RAM and Storage
The realme10 comes with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, so you’ll have plenty of space for all your photos, videos, and apps. And if you ever need more storage, you can add up to 1TB of microSD storage.
realme UI 3.0
The realme10 runs on the latest version of realme’s custom UI, which is based on Android 12. While the custom UI mostly just acts as just another Android re-skin, it, unfortunately, has a few built-in features (e.g. the App Market) that we found quite intrusive, but we were able to disable them after fiddling around the phone’s features.
The realme10 supports dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.3, so you’ll be able to connect to a variety of devices. One huge plus is that it actually has a 3.5mm headphone jack! This means you can use your favorite wired headphones without having to carry around an annoying dongle!
Thin, lightweight design
Despite its large screen, the realme10 is surprisingly light and compact. It weighs just 178 grams and is only 8mm thick, making it easy to carry around in your pocket or bag. Plus, its minimalist design looks great and doesn’t feel cheap. However, the gorgeous back display is a fingerprint magnet, so it’s a good thing the phone comes with a basic silicon case.
The realme 10 comes in two iridescent colors: Clash White and Rush Black. Either would make a stylish choice.
Affordable Price Tag
One of the best things about the realme10 is its affordable price tag. It’s a great option for budget-conscious shoppers who still want a quality phone — and it also comes with a one-year warranty. The realme10 comes in two price points: PHP 12,999 for the 128GB model and PHP 14,999 for the 256GB model.
(Here’s a hot tip: on 11.11, you can grab the 128GB realme 10 for its Mega Sale Price of PHP 10,999!)
Pre-orders will start on November 26 to December 2, 2022 on the realme Shopee Official Store Page.
