Realme 3 Pro Review

The Realme 3 Pro has 64GB and 128GB of onboard storage options that both are expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). This is identical on the Realme 2 Pro that also has 64GB and 128GB of inbuilt storage options with microSD card support for storage expansion.

In terms of optics, the Realme 3 Pro and Realme 2 Pro both have a dual rear camera setups. The Realme 3 Pro, however, packs a 16-megapixel primary camera (IMX519 sensor) with an f/1.7 lens, paired with a 5-megapixel secondary camera (GC5035 sensor) with an f/2.4 lens. This is unlike the Realme 2 Pro that has a 16-megapixel Sony IMX398 primary sensor with an f/1.7 lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

The Realme 3 Pro also has a 25-megapixel selfie camera sensor at the front along with an f/2.0 lens. However, the Realme 2 Pro comes with a 16-megapixel selfie camera sensor with an f/2.0 lens.

The battery on the Realme 3 Pro is of 4,045mAh capacity and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. This isn't in line with the Realme 2 Pro that packs a 3,500mAh battery that doesn't support any fast charging tech.
