Realme U1 summary

The Realme U1 features a plastic body with a laminated back, which looks very nice. It also has a tiny 'dewdrop' notch and slim bezels on the sides. The phone supports dual 4G VoLTE and there's a dedicated slot for a microSD card too. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 SoC, which offers very good app and gaming performance. ColorOS 5.2 also feature two new apps called ORoaming and Smart Scan, which are handy. The front 25-megapixel camera captures detailed selfies in daylight but struggles in low light. It's the same for the rear camera too. Battery life is very good as the 3500mAh battery easily lasts a full day on a single charge.

Great Value for Money With awesome looks
By Zorina Shineintherain | 11 Jan 2019
My 1st recommended phone in this price point, especially 3gb variant which have decent primary camera and more importantly great selfie camera which produces great photos with b Sony flagship camera at just Rs 11,999. Sound quality is really good even in very loud sound. The trendy dewdrop notch and poly-carbonate glass-like finish with 13 layers coating which reflects light in different ways makes it premium and eye catchy. Overall, for 3gb variant, best phone in 12k price and very good phone at 15k pri.ce point for the 4gb variant.
