5 Reasons to Buy the Realme 5i
Realme has officially launched in the Philippines the Realme 5i. It’s the company’s most affordable smartphone under the Realme 5 family but packs competitive mid-range specs, including a massive 5,000mAh battery. If you’re thinking about getting this device, let us give you five reasons why you should.
Although it has plenty of similarities to the Realme 5 in terms of specs, we’re glad that Realme made some differences in the design of the Realme 5i to make it stand out. It sports a Sunrise Design, which simulates the rays of the sun. It also has this textured finish and metallic paint job in Aqua Blue and Forest Green. Aside from that, it’s solidly built and has a large 6.5-inch screen for your multimedia needs.
The Realme 5i wants to be your daily photography companion by sporting four rear cameras consisting of a 12MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensors, making it a versatile shooter. For selfies, it has an 8MP sensor, which is more than enough for social media posts.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 AIE
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset was announced last year. It has an octa-core CPU with clock speeds up to 2.0GHz, Adreno 610 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage with a dedicated microSD card slot. It may not be as powerful as the Snapdragon 700-series, but this makes the Realme 5i one of the most affordable Snapdragon 665-powered device on the market.
The Realme 5i also wants you to forget about bringing a power bank as it is equipped with a massive 5,000mAh battery. That’s more than enough to satisfy heavy users. If you spend hours on mobile gaming, binge-watching on YouTube or Netflix, or taking photos and videos, the Realme 5i won’t leave you empty in the middle of the day.
One of the impressive things about the Realme 5i is the price. At PHP 6,990 for the 3GB + 64GB model, it’s one of the best value smartphones out there. So, if you’re on a hunt for a competitively priced mid-range smartphone, make sure to check out the Realme 5i.
