Although 5G is not yet available in India, budget 5G smartphones are all the rage right now, yet we have seen a dozen brands launch 5G offers. The latest entry is the Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G, which launched last February 24th, launched last year and is a strategy in 2021 and we already have a few thousand good smartphones in our hands for Rs. 30,000, which is ready for the next generation, high-speed network.
The challenge among the manufacturers seems to be who can offer the most affordable 5G smartphone and for now that title goes to the Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G. 3,000 including starting price. 1, 999, which is currently the cheapest 5G phone in India. Add a large battery with a high refresh rate display, fast charging and a powerful SC – and you have your own great feature smartphone.
It’s a better upgrade than the Narzo 20 Pro (review) and it’s time to find out how much it costs.
Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G Prices and Variants
At Rs 400 for Rs 16,999, you get 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in the base variant of the Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G. The high-end variant is priced at Rs. 19,999 and here I will review you 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. Both variants have LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 type storage.
Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G Design
We talked about the design in my first impression piece and even after a week of using it my opinion has not changed much. The all-plastic body is still fine, the ergonomics are good and despite weighing 194g it does not look too heavy. The blade I have is very nice looking silver color and it does a good job of hiding the fingerprints, although it looks great looking here without any pattern, it shows a bit of a mix.
The side mounted fingerprint sensor works very well. All you need is a quick tap to unlock the phone. Facial recognition is equally fast. All sensitive buttons are placed at your fingertips, good tactile response.The Realm Norjo 30 Pro 5G has the first impressions
The Real Narzo 30 Pro is well built but the rear panel shows some belts without the usual pattern.
I also like the big and lively show. It is a 6.5-inch full-HD + LCD panel with high quality brightness and color saturation. I prefer the AMOLED panel on the Pro model but I think it needs to include a 120Hz refresh rate. One thing I noticed is that in the default ‘auto’ setting, the display is powered at 90Hz, not 120Hz, which seems to be state-of-the-art. You need to set the refresh rate to 120Hz manually to get a smoother effect, after exactly this setting, the refresh rate will match what is on the screen and will vary between 120Hz, 90Hz and 60Hz.
Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G specification and software
The Realm Narzo 30 Pro 5G MediaTek Dimension 800 is powered by USC, has a built-in 5G modem and is very powerful and capable. It is also available on Realm’s own X7 (Review) smartphone, which is priced similar to the variant of the Narzo 30 Pro 5G i testing. We will then move on to the quality expectation of the two phones.
With the hybrid SIM slot, you can expand the internal storage of the Narzo 30 Pro 5G, but that means giving up the use of a second SIM card. Standard sensors and support for dual-band Wi-Fi AC, Bluetooth 5.1 and multiple satellite navigation systems. There is no NFC or official IP rating for water resistance, although Realm claims it can penetrate mild water.
