Realme 3 review summary

The Realme 3 is the successor to the Realme 2 and features an updated design unibody design, with a dewdrop notch. The 6.2-inch display still has an HD+ resolution, which is a little low for this price segment but it produces good colours and is legible under sunlight. It also supports two Nano SIM cards with Dual VoLTE and a separate slot for a microSD card. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 SoC, which delivers good app and gaming performance. We didn't notice any overheating issues either. ColorOS 6.0 is based on Android 9 Pie, which looks slick compared to previous offerings. The rear 13-megapixel camera sadly, isn't a consistent performer and struggles in low-light. The new Nightscape and Chroma Boost feature do their job well. The selfie camera is also quite average at best. The 4230mAh battery didn't fare too well in our battery loop test but does last a full day on one charge. The Realme 3 is a decent upgrade but at this price, we think you'd be better off with the Realme U1 or even the Redmi Note 7 by Xiaomi, for a bit more money.
