For a quick reference, the realme 3 was launched on 4th Match, with a very unique starry design, it is a successor of previously launched realme 2 which teased to be a very successful device. As realme says, we believe in proper upgrades and not just the upgrade in numbers with few changes. The realme 3 features a completely new design, better display properties, a much better processor, better-optimized battery with major upgrades in Camera with AI-Engine supports. So, realme has upgraded nearly every single feature in realme 3 from the previous realme 2. Also, you can Install TikTok on this mobile by following method.

The realme 3 packs a 6.2-inch Dewdrop Notch style display, which is an HD+ Display panel, and its display property says it has 450nits of brightness, which makes the display impressive at the low power consuming HD+ panel. However, a Full HD+ panel like realme U1 will be considered as a true upgrade from the previous realme 2.
In my experience with the Display, the viewing angles are great here, the contrast rate is at its high, the colors are punchy and close to accurate. Also under the sunlight, it will perform highly impressive, and the user can easily use the phone. At Ambient light, sensor is working super fine to provide the impressive display performance. Watching Movies and Online videos is totally fine, and users would never find any kind of dissatisfaction, but at the time of playing high-graphics intensive games like PUBG, Nova, Asphalt where GPU takes help from processor to perform super fine but the display does make change here, and you can actually find the HD+ panel less in contrast. Since I am using realme U1, I can notice the slight change in the experience. But, it’s not a deal-breaker. If you are using an HD+ panel Smartphone realme 3 would be a perfect upgrade. Because it’s Display is way better than all other Smartphone with the same specification on the board. Also realme 3 have an awesome Wallpapers collection.

No Doubt, realme 3 features the most unique and stylish design of all time. It has three colors on board, Black, Dynamic Black, and Radiant Blue. Also, realme team has a special passion to feature the most premium and beautiful design in the budget segment. Since they have already proved their passion for premium design phones with the launch of revolutionary realme 2 Diamond Cutting design. I have the Dynamic Black Design, it has a Gradient effect of Black, Blue and Purple Color with Pearl Particles all over the phone. It shines like a starry space star.
In the hand, realme 3 feels very premium and grippe in hand. Because of the Unibody, the phone has rounded corners and no frames. Also, you can’t find the Antenna lines anywhere on the body, the phone is crafted from a single piece of polycarbonate material, you can’t find any cut-outs and mobile frames.
This time, realme logo is written in a vertical manner, which is highlighted in 3D style, if you touch the logo you can actually feel every word R E A L M E. It feels one of the most passionate designs we ever saw a brand has taken care of everything. As all the beautiful things are precious, I recommend taking care of this beauty inside the silicon hard case provided in the box to avoid unwanted scratches and fingerprint smudges.
Now, the camera of realme 3 is the most innovative part, because this time we have done something that none of any budget device in the same price bracket ever provided. The rear camera has a dual-sensor of 13MP+ 2MP, the main camera of 13MP sports a large f/1.8 aperture which helps to capture great quality images, even in low lighting. The secondary rare camera of 2MP is a depth-sensing camera, which helps to capture details and lots of information during photo capturing.
This time, realme has completely changed the camera interface with the help of Color OS 6.0. Believe me guys, I have used the previous Color OS 5.2, and I can simply feel the difference in optimization and smooth UI with Color OS 6.0. Here is a Camera interface screenshot.
realme 3 also comes with Cam2 API enabled, which helps to run the Google Camera on realme 3 very easily. Check this article for a tutorial on How to Install Google Camera on realme 3.
Realme has also worked on three aspects, like HDR Photos, Social Media friendly images which you can capture with the help of chroma boost, it enhances the colors of the whole images and makes the image look cool and adorable. You can find when you will personally use it. Another upgraded aspect is Night photography, and this time realme gone beyond limits to feature a Nightscape mode, which captures stunning night photos. It captures almost 7-8 pictures in the time span of 3 seconds, and merge all the images with different information captured by different photos. Thanks, to the large f/1.8 aperture present in the main camera.
The extra camera features: realme 3 camera have Panorama Mode, Expert Mode, Time-Lapse, Slow-Motion (120FPS) and Google lens. All the features work great, I will explain them in my dedicated camera review on realme 3.
Front Camera: The realme 3 spots a front camera of 13MP which captures social media like photos with a good amount of details. Users will get an all-time awesome beautification mode with a variety of features in beautification. Such as Smoothen, Thinner face, Smaller face, Chin, Bigger eye, Smaller Nose, Touch Up, and 3D. Now girls will pretty much happy with this awesome beautification enhancements. I find a problem here, which is no AR stickers in the camera, I would request my realme team to please add the AR Stickers in the camera, as the expectations from realme are high, and we have to fulfill them. Users are everything
Sound Quality: Talking about the sound quality of realme 3, it’s superfine here. I have tested various songs, and YouTube videos. The speakers’ output is good here, the sound quality is good enough to enjoy.
Battery: realme 3 is boosted up with a massive 4230 mAh battery, which is very powerful and makes realme 3 the best phone with such powerful battery under 10,000 rupees. It is far better than any other devices in this price segment. In my usage, I found the battery to test the hardest to calculate because it does not drain so fast. On my normal usage, the realme 3 battery performed like a pro. It has given me the power of regular 1 and a half-day, approx 43 hours.
When it comes to performance, realme never compromise. And, we just proved this statement with the all-new realme 3, which is featuring Helio P70 which is an AI-Based 12nm Octa-core processor with great optimizations. I will try to explain Helio P70 here, it was launched last year in IMC where our CEO Mr. Madhav Sheth announced that realme will be the first brand to use Helio P70, and realme U1 launched with the processor. But, the difference is Color OS 6.0 based on Android 9.0 which is boosting the performance of realme 3, and I found it better performer and smooth user experience.
Gaming: The most interesting thing is gaming on realme3, this 9000 rupees device gives the unbeatable gaming experience. Like I have played PUBG, Asphalt 9, and Nova Legends. All the three high-graphics intensive games is totally smooth without any lag but you might get some fps drop which is pretty common. A normal user will never notice the fps drop. Overall its great while gaming.
Internals: realme 3 is available in two different variants. 3GB+32GB, and 4GB+64GB. Now, users with their preference can buy one.
Problem with realme 3:
Now not every smartphone is perfect, and realme 3 is one of them. I would request to my realme team to fix them with the help of OTA update so our users can get most out of the device. I tackle some problem like No EIS Support in the camera, NO Widewine L1 support, No AR Sticker in the Camera.
Okay so the conclusion part, I would not take one second of snap to recommend this awesome device to any users. Now many people have a perception that realme 3 is for light users, but I am not agreed with that statement, its price in a budget segment doesn’t make it for budget and light users. Any users with the intensive gaming preference can buy the higher variant of 4GB because the Helio P70 works super fine with the 4GB variant more RAM means more load time-space. Also, using a Micro SD card of 16/32GB and moving apps to external space source can also enhance the gaming and performance experience.
Realme 3 can also satisfy all your camera need. Also, users with an entertainment purpose can find the realme 3 their one-stop because of the big 6.2-inch HD+ display, yes HD+ display could be a bottleneck for some entertainment lovers but it’s no deal-breaker at all. But overall its a value for money product. It worth every single penny spent. Also, realme is the No. 1 quality brand in India, so you don’t need to worry about the durability. It will last longer with you. SO, that’s it for the full detailed review of realme 3. I hope you guys found it helpful. Thanks
