The Realme 3 (RMX1821) Smartphone In-Depth Review!

 

The Official Realme 3 Tech Briefing

Let’s start off with the official Realme 3 (64 GB | 32 GB) tech briefing!

 

India + International Variants

Before we kick off the preview, we need point out that there are two Realme 3 variants. Internationally, it runs on the MediaTek Helio P60. Yes, the same mobile SoC used in the far pricier OPPO F9.

The Indian variant though runs on the faster MediaTek Helio P70 mobile SoC. What’s different?

  • Its four high-speed ARM Cortex-A73 cores run 2.1 GHz, instead of 2.0 GHz
  • Its ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU runs at 900 MHz, instead of 800 MHz

Basically, the Helio P70 variant has a slightly faster CPU, with a GPU that is said to be 13% faster.

 

Realme 3 Colour Options

Globally, there are three colour options – Radiant Blue, Dynamic Black and Classic Black. However, here in Malaysia, they are only bringing in the Radiant Blue and Dynamic Black, which are 3D gradient colours.

The Radiant Blue colour combines semi-transparent blue-green colours with a silver mirror reflective layer.

The Dynamic Black colour, on the other hand, is created by black and blue painting in three separate spray and bake sessions, with pearl powder added to add depth.

 

Realme 3 Price List + Deals

The Realme 3 (64 GB | 32 GB) will be available in two configurations, from 6 April 2019 onwards.

Let’s take a look at the box and unbox it to see what’s inside!

Realme 3 box contents

When you fully unbox it, you will find the following items :

  • One Realme 3 clear TPU bumper case
  • One set of Realme 3 documents
  • 10 watt Realme fast USB charger
  • One micro USB data and power cable

We really like its bundled bumper case, and highly recommend that you use it. It provides a thick protective border along all sides of the display. It is also thick enough to protect the camera bump.
