Realme has made rapid strides in its short journey as a young brand. The strategy has been to offer ‘disruptive’ hardware at aggressive prices to counter Xiaomi’s dominance in the affordable phone space. At the Realme 3 launch in early March, the company formally asserted that it will bring in a befitting competition to the much-publicized Redmi Note 7 Pro. Well, that Pro variant has now arrived.

Design and Build Quality:

The first time we held the Realme 3 Pro, it didn’t feel radically different than most other phones in the segment that we run into these days. However, soon after we started using it we could appreciate subtle refinements.The front is predominantly occupied by the full HD+ screen with dewdrop notch (V-shaped), narrow side bezels and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Realme’s love affair with plastic shells continues. The phone isn’t as premium as glass phones but it is more likely to withstand an accidental drop. The good thing is that the 3 Pro is slimmer and lighter compared to the Xiaomi’s new Note. Also the back panel curves towards the edges which makes it more comfortable to grip.

Realme is continuing with the gradient finish for the Pro variant as well, and it does make the Realme 3 Pro trendy. If you view it from an angle, you will notice semi ‘S’ lines that look appealing.

Camera Performance:

To counter Xiaomi’s 48MP primary sensor, Realme banks on Sony IMX519 sensor, which is the same sensor that’s used on the OnePlus 6T. The RM 3 Pro includes a 16MP + 5MP setup at the rear and a 25MP selfie camera on the front.

The camera app is not very well laid out, but it includes all sorts of modes and options you’d need, including Portrait mode, Panorama, Chroma Boost mode, and Nightscape mode.

The Chrome Boost mode works similar to HDR mode by stacking multiple images to offer better dynamic range and richer color tones. Nightscape, on the other hand, is low light photography solution where it takes long exposure shots handheld.

The Realme 3 Pro camera shots turned up really good, considering the price. It manages to take sharp images in daylight through the color are excessively warm. The clicked images show great dynamic range and contrast.

Coming to the night photography, the Realme 3 Pro’s nightscape really helps. The multi-exposure shots offer far better clarity and result as compared to its auto mode. The AI can automatically turn on the night mode as well. 

As for the Videos, the Realme 3 Pro camera can shoot 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 60fps. The phone also supports 720p slow-mos at 960 fps which a rare feature in this budget. You may shoot 10-second clips at 960fps, but this works well only outdoors. Overall, baring the laggy camera app, photography experience on the Realme 3 Pro is among the better ones in the price.

Battery Performance:

I was quite impressed by the battery life on the Realme 3 Pro, which houses a 4,045 mAh powerhouse. The phone lasted me a full day on most days I was using it. Only when I was heavily gaming on it, did the phone give about half a day's battery life. PUBG Mobile drained the battery from 100 to 40 percent in about two hours, which is reasonably good for the device. Apart from that, for things like browsing and watching videos, I got approximately five hours of screen on time which is quite impressive.

Another great feature of the Realme 3 Pro is that it supports Oppo's VOOC 3.0 fast charging capabilities. Now it isn't as fast as say the fast charge on OnePlus, but it does charge your phone quite quickly. I managed to charge my phone from 0 - 35 percent in 20 minutes.

Verdict:

It appears as though there are a few things that are going for the Realme 3 Pro: great display; amazing build quality; good cameras and capable hardware.

The same can also be said about the Redmi Note 7 Pro except that it is better in the camera department and is an overall great performer.

Is it really worth buying the Realme 3 Pro for Rs 16,999 when the Redmi Note 7 Pro offers something better at a similar price point? I think not. There really doesn't appear to be anything that the Realme 3 Pro does better, except for taking better selfies and slightly faster charging. If selfies and the slight faster-charging speeds matter, then Realme 3 Pro is for you. For everything else, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a better choice.
