From the last few years, OPPO has become a popular name in India. The OPPO’s presence in the offline market ahead questions, but now theOPPO is aiming to go for online customers too.
For the online market, the company has introduced there new an online-exclusive brand which is Realme.
The first smartphone from this online brand is Realme 1, which is just launched by the company.
To know, if this Realme 1 is worth its bucks, so lets get first start with its design.
Realme 1 Design.
The Diamond Black design at the back of handset is an eye-catcher. The glass back is a fingerprint magnet, but the handset handles to stand out from the flood of smartphones that feature metallic backs.
The Realme 1, notwithstanding its large screen size but it is easy to hold even with single hand. The volume rocker and power button are set on the right side of the handset, while the SIM slot is at the left side of the phone.
The rear camera setup is on the top left at the rear, and prominently, the fingerprint sensor and home button are absent in the it. The 3.5mm headphone jack is at the bottom-firing speakers and micro-USB charging port.
Realme 1 Display.
The Realme 1 arrives with an IPS LCD 6-inch FHD+ (2,160 x 1,080 pixel) display with the current standard aspect ratio of 18:9. The handset features with narrow bezels at top and bottom of the screen, and there is no home button at front, as specified earlier.
Realme 1 Camera.
If we talk about optics which is the new offering by OPPO, the Realme 1 comes with a single 13-megapixel rear-facing primary camera and 8-megapixel for selfie camera.
In the default camera app, we get various options including the option to shoot time-lapse videos, and clicking pictures with stickers or in panorama and expert modes.
In the expert mode, we get to adjust ISO and shutter speed to click images. We can click pictures with a timer as well as in HDR mode.
Realme 1 Processor.
OPPO’s new smartphone, Realme 1 is powered by MediaTek MT6771 Helio P60 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM, the handset packs in a lot of horsepowers.
It has managed to run the most apps and games on Google’s Play store with ease, and even multitasking did not pose any problems for the phone. Thanks to OPPO Game Acceleration, the company claims that the handset can optimize the display configuration to utilize the hardware resources fully.
However, the best feature that comes along by OPPO Game Acceleration is that we can block banner notifications and sound alerts while playing games.
Moving to the operating system, the handset runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based on ColorOS 5.0 out of the box, without too much bloatware. There are plenty of customizable options are available for users.
We have an assistive ball, which works just like the Assistive Touch in iOS. The SmartSMS feature which extracts essential content from the messages, like flight or movie tickets, and displays them as cards to the users.
Realme 1. Security.
In this phone, there is app encryption as well as a personal information protection feature, which prevents an app from getting access to users’ personal information.
There is a ‘Nightly Shield’ to avoid eye strain and Clone Apps for those who like to use the same apps with two different accounts on the same handset.
As the handset prominently misses out on a fingerprint sensor, the company has also offered Face Unlock feature as a solution for unlocking the phone in quick time.
Realme 1 Battery.
The Realme 1 comes with 3410 mAh battery.
Realme 1 Conclusion.
Price started at Rs 13,990 for the 6GB RAM variant, OPPO’s new Realme 1 seems like a handset that could have been a great option in the mid-range price segment but falls short slightly, especially in the camera department.
OPPO can sort out some fundamental shortcomings with this handset, maybe via software updates. The Realme 1 is still worth considering if you’re in the market for an affordably-priced daily driver that looks stylish and helps you turn heads wherever you go.
