Realme 1 Review | Design | Specification | Price

According to Oppo, it’s sub-brand Realme has recognized the pulse of Indian youth. Realme’s smartphones will be available exclusively on Amazon India. Because of its price, in the Budget Market Segment, Realme is trying to compete with Xiaomi. Realme 1 smartphone starts at Rs 8,990. It has an 18: 9 display, 6 GB RAM. It has a unique design with a fiberglass body.

Get the Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box in Realme 1. The smartphone could be a Redmi Note 5 Pro Killer. Oppo’s marketing makes that very apparent. Does Realme 1 that the budget could prove to be ‘different’ and ‘better’ in the smartphone, Let’s find out…


Diamond-cut looks at the back with fiberglass body in Realme 1 gives it premium look. Oppo says that there are 15 tangent planes carved onto the back panel to reflect light in different ways and make the smartphone “look like a diamond”, that makes the design of the phone i.nique & snazzy. One problem with this is that the phone easily grabs fingerprints because of its glass back.

The 84.75% of the screen-to-body ratio, which makes Realme 1 compact and handy. The screen is not really borderless, but the front look of the phone looks slick and modern. Despite the plastic frame, build quality is better. We dropped Realme 1 several times but did not suffer any significant damage.

The rear camera module has a slight bulge. Volume rockers on the left side of the phone, where there is no difficulty in reaching. The power button and SIM tray placed on the right side. Where many phones of this price range come with the hybrid SIM tray, Realme 1 has different slots for two Nano SIMs and SD cards.

The Fingerprint sensor does not appear on this smartphone, but the company has given it facial recognition in its place. There is a passcode option for security. Face recognition works better but struggles in direct sunlight and when lighting is not favorable.

Realme 1’s Specification

Realme 1 specifications are attractive in this price segment. The smartphone powered by Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P60 processor, whose clock speed is 2.0 GHz. This specialty makes it a Redmi Note 5 opponent, but it is also a capability to compete with the even more expensive Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Realme 1’s 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage variant is priced at 8,990 rupees. 4 GB RAM and 64GB variants will be repaid for Rs 10,990. Also, 6 GB RAM and 128 GB variants will be available at Rs 13,990. It is possible to increase storage by up to 256 GB via microSD card. In terms of pricing, we’d say that the Realme 1 offers excellent value, especially with the entry-level variant. It’s one of the tough competitors in Smartphones under 10000 segmant.

Realme 1 has a 6 inch Full HD + display. The display is a little reflexive and viewing angles are not up to the mark. The colors are vibrant but the screen is brighter for use outside. We are glad that the company has not copied the Nokia display. Realme 1 has a 3410 mAh non-removable battery.

The smartphone runs Oppo’s Custom Color OS 5.0, which is on top of the Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone will get FM radio, GPS, A-GPS. The phone will get a micro-USB port. It has not been given a USB-Type C port according to the trend. One SIM in Realme 1 will give 4G speed at a time. The second SIM will automatically switch to 3G.

Realme 1’s Performance & Battery

During our review, everything went smoothly in the smartphone. Work like daily tasks such as photos, web browsing, 4K videos was easily done. Heavy games like Subway Surfer and Asphalt 8 in Realme 1 also ran without lag. The phone does not get too hot during gaming & multitasking. Oppo claims that the Helio P60 outperforms the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 in the AnTuTu benchmark.

Realme 1 runs on Oppo’s Custom skin Color OS 5.0, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The interface is smooth. The Settings app and Quick launch panel are a little hard. The app drawer has not been given and the Google Now widget has been replaced by a custom screen, with options like weather, stepping, a favorite contact, recent events. It is a positive thing that the bloatware will not be found in this.

However, the user will get the dual app feature, three-finger screenshot shortcut, theme, and locking gesture. However, nothing has been said about the Android P update at the time of launch. The battery given in Realme 1 is better.

In our HD Video Loop Test, the handset is backed by 11 hours 30 minutes. If the phone is also used solidly, the charger is required only after 11-12 hour. Realme 1 smartphone does not support quick charging, so It takes two and a half to three hours for a full charge.

Realme 1’s Camera

Oppo’s Sub-Brand Realme 1 has 13-megapixel rear camera, which comes with a single LED flash. The front camera is of 8 megapixels. The company says it can access 296 facial points. There is also an Artificial Intelligence feature.

The iOS-like camera app is easy to use and offers a wide variety of modes such as Panorama, Time-lapse, and AR sticker. It already has a Featured Pro mode, which helps the user to shutter speed, ISO, exposure, aperture, and white balance aggregation.

The AI-based selfie camera automatically detects skin tone, skin type, age, gender. In our experience, better pictures came from front cameras but it struggles in low light. AI beautification is better but some non-essential watercolor comes with the effect.

The camera app took better pictures in a good light. In low light, it appears to be struggling. AI beautification is better but comes with unwanted watercolor effects. Front and rear, both cameras use the Bokeh effect. Photos are not good, Edge detection was bad and details were not good either.

The 13-megapixel rear camera captures a decent amount of detail but images look slightly dull. The dynamic range of a sensor is poor and it appears to be struggling for auto-focus in detail and low light. The AR stickers have been better applied. A total of 14 stickers can be used through front and rear cameras.


Realme 1 has a unique design, which does not make much sense to everyone. The 6GB RAM, which we reviewed, showed better performance. Battery life is good. Dedicated MicroSD is a card slot and the display is also good. Fingerprint sensor deficiencies, sticky software, and average cameras prevent Realme 1 from making the best in its segments. Its 3 GB and 4GB RAM variants are valued for money products. It is certain that Realme 1 has created a little trouble for Xiaomi. it’s also a competitor of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

Oppo Realme 1 is offering the brand as a competition to Xiaomi. Oppo says that he will not sell it through Flash sale But it is not clear how many units the company will launch at the first sale. Demand is sure to be high if the phone gets out of stock, it will not be surprising.
