    is the chinese smartphone NTC approved?

  2. Luke says:

    I wonder how long these phones would last if I change every 5 years. I mean I need constant OS updates or future-proof as they say, as well as durability of the phone. These phones seem to pack good parts but longevity is my priority.

    • STORMI says:

      No phone can withstand 5 years of being future proof, phones literally change every single release so it’s highly unlikely to reach 5 years, maybe 3 at max. As for OS updates, I think Realme offers up to 2 years.
