Realme 5 Pro – DISPLAY, UI AND APPS:
The Realme 5 Pro features 6.3-inch LCD panel with 1080p+ resolution. It is a great display for viewing angles notably for multimedia or gaming experience.
The device carries 4035mAh battery were good enough for the long period of display. You might set the brightness to mid-high or max level when you’re out in the sun or at minimal (or 50 percent) for indoor usage.
The Realme 5 Pro is driven by Color OS / Realme UI out of the box (based on Android 9 / upgradable to Android 10). The Color OS / Realme UI has snappier performance in swiping and navigating on the system. All newly installed apps cluttered around the home screen and you need to re-organize it. Nevertheless, the Realme UI is stable and well optimized and also cleaner to look at. App drawer is also present, so much like a stock Android OS without installing the 3rd party home launchers. The Realme UI offers themes for your personal liking.
Realme 5 Pro – PERFORMANCE:
The Realme 5 Pro is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 AIE coupled with Adreno 616 of GPU and UFS 2.1 ROM that makes the application and games runs faster and snappier.
If you are into mobile gaming such as Mobile Legends, PUBG or alike, it can run most of intensive games we can throw in, but far from smoothness level if you compared it to those high-end devices.
The device is also bundled with 128GB of internal storage and can be expanded via dedicated microSD card slot. It also supported with USB-OTG functionality for file transfer and sharing. The Dual-SIM phone supports 3G HSPA+ and 4G LTE seems working fine while using it via video calls, web browsing or even downloading files. Using the phone for calls and text messages were working fine as well as the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other wireless connectivity works great without an issue.
Heat may rise on a longer period of usage such as playing heavy games, web surfing or watching videos while mobile data is turn on.
