User reviews about the realme Narzo 50
Latest reviews added
- After more or less a year of usage, it's a good phone for the price. Rear camera and thermals when gaming could be better.
For $140-$180, This phone is enough for those who want a decent phone with a 120Hz display.
The only reason as to why I bought this phone was to play rhythm games on high refresh rate, and it delivers. The display's colors were quite pleasing as I didn't expect much from a 120Hz panel from a budget phone. Don't expect too much though, it's brightness isn't all that impressive as it's not too visible outdoors and it still doesn't beat an AMOLED panel.
The battery performance was okay, it wasn't really obvious that it had 5000mAh of capacity but if you'd run out of juice, it charges within an hour or less.
The Realme Narzo 50 4G has sufficient power to handle demanding games such as PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty: Mobile and a little of Genshin Impact (if you set the graphical quality to the low/lowest). However, it suffers to hold up framerates when it heats up and it does especially that on areas with high ambient temperature or when the game gets into demanding situations due to the chipset being a MediaTek Helio series, known for thermal throttling.
From what I've noticed, it also suffers when you have a lot of applications open. I do not know the reason as to why, but I have read that this phone has terrible RAM management. So when gaming, try to minimize the amount of applications open.
The main rear camera was lackluster even though the sensor was a 50MP Samsung S5KJN1, probably due to how the software handles the post-processing. It's other sensors couldn't help either since they were just as bad or even worse. My sibling's Realme 5 Pro could even output much better photos even it had an objectively worse sensor.
The selfie camera despite it not being the highlight of the phone surprisingly performed alright, if not decently good enough for the price.
Realme UI is good, I don't really care about the UI/UX of the phone.
I encountered an issue where it restarted itself a few times. It got fixed eventually, but please keep it in mind.Pros
- 6.6" IPS 120Hz display
- 33W charging, good battery
- Passable performance
- Good selfie camera
- Realme UI, if you are a fan
- Audio jack and microSD slot, if you care
- Thermal throttling
- Rear camera quality
- RAM management
- QC issue (restarts itself on some units)
- Camera bump, bad for rhythm games
- It's too affordable?
- AutoThe perfect downgrade if you want a good device to focus on other things
The cell phone has a good screen and an incredible battery, thanks to its not so powerful processor the cell phone lasts a few days without charging, even when it reaches 20%, I connect for 30 minutes and it reaches 60%, which gives me another day of battery. In my experience, I don't use it for gaming, just casual. My purpose was to have basic functions with social networks, calls and messages, good coverage and that's it. For games there are other devices. For daily use this cell phone is perfect. In terms of cameras, being a professional photographer I'm not interested in a cell phone camera, they are basic and generally bad, this one is not far behind.Pros
