Realme Narzo 10: Design
Realme Narzo 10 weighs about 200 gms and suits in comfortably inside the grip. The phone is available in a really sturdy, sturdy construct. There’s a 48MP AI quad-camera setup on the again which juts out just a little from the physique by about some millimetres. As a result of rear camera placement protruding just a little on the again, the phone can not lie completely flat on flat surfaces like a desk however it doesn’t slip additionally.
The again is totally flat, in a matte end, with a novel texture and with none exterior patterns. It does register fingerprints and isn’t smudge-free.

On the proper edge, an influence button is current whereas on the left, there’s a twin hybrid SIM slot with a devoted microSD card slot and the amount buttons.
The highest edge is free from any buttons whereas the underside edge proliferates with a 3.5mm headphone jack, two very small holes for microphone enter, a USB Sort-C port and 4 small capsule-shaped speaker vents.

Darkish Mode and Eye Consolation mode, each are there. You’ll be able to select between a notched display and a fullscreen one for the apps on the phone. The icon scheme is neat and they’re well-spaced.
We discovered the display screen brightness to be missing below brilliant daylight and even when it was jacked as much as full, it’s inadequate. The display screen brightness, when indoors, is optimum. The Auto Brightness characteristic works nicely however for the detail-oriented customers, the brightness bar doesn’t present a rise/lower in a fluid method.
Realme Narzo 10: Efficiency
This can be a 4GB RAM (LPDDR4x) phone with 128GB of native storage that may be upped to 256GB most. Realme has geared up this phone with an octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 processor with Mali-G52 GPU.
Initially, after we began utilizing the phone, there have been a number of glitches that we discovered whereas navigating by way of the apps. Even after the system replace, a few of these glitches remained just like the display screen freezing throughout a WhatsApp voice name. Some apps took greater than 2 seconds to open. Whereas app loading time will not be that large a problem for a light-weight person, display screen freezing is. It saved on showing in WhatsApp calls; the icons for accepting and declining the calls turned unresponsive and stayed that means till the decision was disconnected. Curiously, the pink button to cancel an ongoing name stayed responsive. As we used the device extra, the app loading time improved and the switching between the apps bought sooner too.
There are some Realme app suites that come preinstalled with the phone like App Market, Sizzling Apps, Sizzling Video games and so on that may’t be eliminated.
The security measures like face unlock and fingerprint recognition work fantastic. Face unlock takes nearly a second to unlock the device whereas the fingerprint reader isn’t that environment friendly which we discovered later throughout our time with the device. To start with, it unlocked the phone in a second however later it took a number of tries to unlock Realme Narzo 10. There’s a display screen brightness optimisation characteristic to assist unlock the phone in dim environments and it really works fantastic so long as there is no such thing as a pitch darkish.
Gaming on Narzo 10 is one characteristic that Realme has been ballyhooing about and it isn’t that far off the mark.

However you may’t play video games like Name of Obligation: Cell at excessive settings on this device as a result of it gained’t allow you to because the graphic high quality setting maxes out at low whereas there are not any choices for top body fee. The smartphone again begins getting heat after 5-6 COD Cell matches however it doesn’t warmth up in order to trigger issues holding the device. General, gaming on this phone was a pleasant expertise.
On Geekbench5, the phone bought 383 in single-core rating and 1339 in multi-core rating.

The rear camera takes clear and sharp footage when outside, be it in sunny or cloudy climate. The main points are preserved within the images, with a slight trace of grain and generally smudginess in very distant objects (greater than 10 metres away).
The selfie camera can also be fairly environment friendly in the course of the day, snapping pics with element and readability. The portrait mode blurs the background successfully, separating the face contours from the background very finely. The pores and skin tone comes out just a little brightened, and the portrait mode additionally smoothes out the traces and wrinkles on the face, which some might like whereas others dislike.
The rear camera efficiency at evening is nearly common, particularly for those who attempt to zoom out and take snaps. Upon zooming out, grain units in, the colors within the picture distort and no sharpness is retained within the picture. With out zoom, the images are clear sufficient however the distant objects come out hazy and lack element.
The macro lens was capable of take some clear and fantastic pictures, even in much less lighting. Quite the opposite, the Ultra-Macro setting doesn’t assist a lot because the lens takes a very long time to deal with the article and likewise, the picture lacks fineness.
The entrance camera at evening takes largely clear pictures in well-lit environment. In darkish situations, the photographs come out to be barely grainy.

This can be a phone with a 5000mAh battery and which signifies that gentle and medium smartphone customers needn’t have any pressure concerning the battery drainage. The phone battery can stretch for a day and a half for those who do these actions on Realme Narzo 10 — watch video content material for about 1-2 hours, play video games for 1-2 hours, examine social media feeds a number of occasions in the course of the day, take heed to some music for 1-2 hours and do another gentle duties like ship emails and so on. These of you who use it greater than that may additionally relaxation assured the battery would final for a minimum of at some point even on heavy utilization.

Realme Narzo 10 is a blended bag. Whereas there are robust factors in its favour like sturdy design, lengthy battery life and lag-free gaming, there are some points plaguing it too; points that may’t be ignored. The worth level is actually aggressive however the camera efficiency at evening, a fingerprint reader that’s sluggish to reply and a buggy UI go away a lot to be desired could go in opposition to the phone for some consumers. Go for this if you would like a price range sturdy phone below Rs 15,000 with a protracted battery life that video games nicely.
