Realme 3 Review


In no time, Realme has become the biggest competitor of companies like Xiaomi and Asus. Last year, the brand came up with its first phone, Realme 1 which was a revolutionary device in the budget price bracket with loads of high-end features like face unlocking. That time onwards the company has released many phones which all are pretty nice and carrying a nice set of features. This time the company has come with its new product, Realme 3 which is a successor of Realme 2.

With 6.22-inch display, solid design, waterdrop notch, MediaTek Helio P70 chipset, and much more, Realme 3 has entered the market again with a bang in the budget range. Starting from Rs. 8,999, is it the best smartphone right now in this range? Let’s find it out in the Realme 3 review below:

Design and Display

Realme 3 has an impressive design built from a polycarbonate shell which makes it weigh around 175 grams and 8.3mm thick. The device looks really good in hands and offers a comfortable grip too. The back panel looks glossy and extremely reflective in nature and packs dual vertical camera setup with a fingerprint reader in the middle back too. The fingerprint reader responds really fast and is easy to reach. At the right of the phone, you get a power button while on the left, you get volume rockers. At the bottom, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, and loudspeaker grille. You can choose to order Realme 3 Online with available Snapdeal Coupon Codes to grab amazing deal prices.

Coming to the display, Realme 3 packs a 6.22-inch HD+ display with a pixel resolution of 1520 x 720. The device features a waterdrop notch which looks very beautiful on the top of the display. The bezels are very thin giving it a 19:9 aspect ratio and the screen-to-body ratio of 88.30%. The colors come out rich and from every angle, you can play games or watch videos with comfort. Looking at the price, the display of the Realme 3 is really great if compared to other devices.


Under the hood, Realme 3 has a 2.1 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. Helio P70 has the Mail-G72 MP3 GPU to run the game in ebb flow and smooth. Realme 3 beats devices like Redmi Note 6 Pro, Samsung Galaxy M20 and Honor 10 Lite in terms of performance and scored 137194 on AnTuTu benchmark, 1481 on Geekbench (single-core) and 5119 points on Geekbench (multi-core). The phone works really smooth as it has performed very well comparing to the others. You will feel no lags or hiccups in both tasking and multi-tasking. Gaming sessions run smoothly especially PUBG on medium graphics renders. Overall, the performance is solid and smooth.

Cameras and Battery Life

Coming to the cameras, the phone packs dual rear camera setup including one 13MP rear sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and a 2MP secondary sensor. For selfies, you get a 13MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture front shooter. If you count the price tag, you will feel really great to know that this device captures some high-quality pictures with nice detailing and aesthetics. In the daylight, the device performs wonders but in low lighting, you will find noisy images- just like any other budget smartphones. Still, it is way better than the others in this range.

The Realme 3 houses a high capacity 4230 mAh battery. Talking about battery, it is a decent one which can give you 13-14 hours on very heavy usage including PUBG sessions, browsing the internet, Facebook, Instagram and watching videos on YouTube. On a typical day, it might give you one day of battery on a single charge with some juice still left in it. The device takes around two hours to reach 0 to 100 percent.

Other Features

The Realme 3 runs Android 9 Pie out of the box paired with ColorOS 6.0 to provide the new user experience. The connectivity options and sensors include Bluetooth 4.2, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, OTG, Micro-USB port, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, fingerprint sensor, and proximity sensor. In the box, you can get Adapter, Micro-USB Cable, Important Information Booklet with Warranty Card, Quick Guide, SIM Card Tool, Screen Protect Film, and a Case. You can also explore similar devise with better battery options available online at amazing discount prices by using AliExpress Promo Codes for electronics items.

Realme 3 comes in three color variants: Dynamic Black, Radiant Blue, and Regular Black.

Final Verdict

The Realme 3 has finally arrived and it has brought loads of nice things with itself. Straightly from the new solid and subtle design, powerful performance, and very affordable price, Realme 3 is a blockbuster. There might be some eyebrows raised on the performance of ColorOS 6.0 and cameras which could have been better. But, seeing the price point, this device can be a nice alternative to the other devices in this price range. But, comparing it with Redmi Note 6 Pro, Redmi Note 7, Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 can be a little harsh.
