Realme claims to have invested $15 million in the technology behind the 6.7-inch Full HD 120Hz AMOLED curved display found on the Realme 10 Pro Plus. The display is bezel-less, which is typically found in mid-flagship smartphones (40K smartphones), and it looks gorgeous.
The curved display feature is a nice addition at this price point, but it serves no useful purpose. This device’s display is impressive; it provides a flicker-free viewing experience and prevents eye strain at low brightness levels. Additionally, the display is vivid, has good viewing angles, and has been skillfully optimised by Realme to prevent accidental touches. The display of the device is also excellent thanks to the 10-bit colour 100% DCI-P3 5000000:1 and double-reinforced glass.
The durability and difficulty in locating the right screen protectors are just two of the many concerns with the curved display. It offers a novel and high-end experience to the majority of users at this price point. As was already mentioned, the device stands out from other smartphones in the lower price range thanks to its minimalist and symmetrical design.
The device has double reinforced glass, which has passed a 1.5m drop-test and is reasonably good even though there is no gorilla glass. We don’t think the display of any other smartphones coming out in the next few months will be able to compete with this one.
Widevine L1 support on the Realme 10 Pro Plus enables the streaming of Full HD content on streaming services and HDR content on YouTube. Additionally, the device’s maximum brightness is 900 nits. Additionally, a built-in fingerprint scanner is included. With low-blue light hardware and PWM dimming mode, which is superior to DC dimming, this is unquestionably a high-quality AMOLED display at an affordable price.
The Realme 10 Pro Plus’s internal hardware consists of a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC, 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. At this price point, the performance is solid and quick, enabling Apex Legends on Ultra-HD graphics settings to run smoothly. Even though this Soc is new, it only represents a slight upgrade over the Dimensity 920 of the previous generation.
The only difference between the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 and the Dimensity 920 is an increase in clock speed. The performance and gaming are good, and there are no throttling issues, but the chipset needs to be upgraded.
The device has two sizable camera modules, each housing three cameras: a 108 MP Samsung HM6 main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 1 MP macro. The photos have great picture quality and Realme UI makes them attractive and ready for social media.
The device has a 16MP selfie camera, but it can only record in 1080p at 30 frames per second. The images are alright. The main camera has good stabilisation and supports 4K @30fps video recording. Additionally, this device has good haptics, which are more precise and raise the standard of smartphone use.
If you recall, the Realme 9 Pro+ had the OIS flagship camera for this price range. Instead of eliminating useful features from their number series, the company should keep offering them. Instead of the OIS, they are offering a 108MP primary camera sensor this year in place of it.
The system is Realme UI 4, which is based on Android 13. Live updates on the always-on display and Spotify track switching are a couple of the useful features of this custom skin. Pixlate is one of the many features in the screenshot editor. This device will receive two significant Android updates, allowing it to reach Android 15.
There is still room for improvement, such as finding a solution to get rid of bloatware and advertisements. As it does not feel good on a premium device, the ads on notifications should be fixed with a software update.
Realme still includes the charger in the box as the cherry on top. Despite the fact that the device only supports 60W fast charging, an 80W SuperDART charger is included. The device has a 5000mAh battery and a total of 9 5G bands, making sure that all crucial bands are connected to it.
The device weighs only about 174g, so holding it won’t make you feel its weight. This is due to the device’s plastic frame and rear panel, as opposed to the previous generation’s glass back. The flashy design and plastic panel attract a lot of fingerprints, which is good for some people. With a weight of only 173g and a thickness of 7.78mm, the plastic panel also helps to reduce the thickness of the device.
The device has two speakers as well, with the secondary speaker being located on top of the device rather than using the earpiece. There is no microSD card slot, IP rating, or headphone jack in the dual-SIM slot. At a price of Rs 25,000, the device will be a reasonable and well-rounded option for daily tasks.
