  • Does anyone know when the global version will be available for the European market

  • Nice but need to be a tech guy

    Very powerful and good looking phone.
    But it's not for everyone, there are a lot of bloatwares you can only remove with adb on pc. Plus every app is on chinese, so first problem is getting the gboard keyboard fast, then get google play and apps.
    The vocal assistant is blocked on a chinese one, and I didn't managed to get google assistant by default app.
    Anyway the phone is a killer at high-end games like codm and genshin, with max specs the phone gets hot but not too much, it's normal for such a beast. But the battery drain is too fast compared to MIUI, hope the upcoming realmd UI 4.0 will fix it.
    Also some apps don't get notifications even when I agreed to have. Not very optimized. If I could change for another phone I think mi 12 S pro would be a better overall experience.

    Pros
    • Phone design
    • Best chip in 2022
    • Gaming on this feels like a different game
    • Nearly no one have it
    Cons
    • Battery optimization
    • Notifications not popping every time
    • Bloatwares to remove

    Comfortable in hand despite being square, optimized battery. Good screen, interesting cameras.

    I enjoy watching Netflix and YouTube at 120hz, everything is fluid, the cameras are better optimized than the GT2PRO, at least they are more stable in video, I would say the best of the Realme to date. The triggers work well I have the Chinese ROM if it takes time to get used to it since they are not physical buttons but it is an extra that it does not modify the aesthetics which is very nice I like the symmetry it projects. The battery does not finish in normal use, a very good experience, about 8 hours of screen time on average. I have received the updates quickly via OTA and in android 13 it seems to me that the battery improves but not so much. Too bad it didn't go global. But without any inconvenience in what is important connectivity. I have not lost signal at any time even with the most deficient operators in the country.

    Pros
    • Good colors on screen and decent brightness
    • Comfortable tactile triggers
    • Long life battery with GaN
    • It's light and feels sturdy.
    • Quick charge from 0 to 100 in less than 20-25min
    • Outstanding optimization in games
    Cons
    • The camera is good but it does not stand out
    • It is not so ergonomic but it has faded
    • The minimum brightness is high
    • The maximum brightness does not reach 1400nits
    • Does not incorporate a default dimmer

    Solid and beautiful smartphone.

    Top smart from Realme, but still not a full-fledged flagship (see disadvantages). It is a pity that there is not, and most likely, there will no longer be a global firmware. Although, with Chinese it can be quite comfortably used in Russia. I recommend to anyone who is not afraid to tinker a little with the settings at the first start.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
