Realme 3i First Impression
Realme 3i is here to fill the gap between Realme C2 and Realme 3. In the first impression the Diamond cut back panel looks very beautiful. We have a blue color variant. It also comes with a gradient color combination of the red and blue diamond cut back panel. The Phone is another copy of realme C2 with the addition of Verticle camera and a fingerprint sensor. In-hand feel of the device is completely same as realme C2, as the same matt finish is used here.
The display of the 3i is coming with the same display panel as we have seen in Realme 3, the quality is almost the same. It comes with a 6.22 inch IPS LCD display. The resolution here is 720p HD+. Also, the waterdrop notch is present, which is now a trademark for realme devices. You can not differentiate Realme 3 and 3i by looking at the display. The display is vibrant and the media viewing experience was good too. We have tried consuming media and experience is amazing for the pricing the phone is offering a great display.
Now, when it comes to battery life, realme never compromise. Especially when its a budget device realme has fixed the tradition 4230 mAh massive battery. Realme 3 and 3i shares the same battery capacity. 4230mAh battery with a 720p display and power efficient Helio P60 SoC leads to very good battery life. The battery will last for one day easily and even 2 days for lite users. For charging you will get 5V 2A normal charger with a Micro USB Cabel.
Realme 3i is a lite version of Realme 3. So, Realme has downgraded from the Helio P70 to Helio P60 on the Realme 3i. Considering the price of 8000 INR, the Helio P60 is a very good processor. We have seen this processor with realme 1, the very first device of realme. Also, the global variant of realme 3 is featuring the same Helio P60, and we have never received any negative review for this processor. Especially at the price point, its a gem. Gaming would never be a problem, it can handle PUBG at medium graphics very easily.
On the software side of things, we will get the ColorOS 6 on top of Android 9.0 Pie. All the typical ColorOS features are present including Navigation gestures. You are going to get almost 48GB of free space out of 64GB, other spaces are filled with system apps and some unwanted free apps, which you can uninstall. But, few realme official apps like Game Centre, Hot Apps, Hot Games are sort of bloatware, because you can’t uninstall them and these apps keep on sending you notifications. But, the important thing they don’t show Ads in the user interface.
Realme 3i Camera
The vertical camera setup has dual rear cameras. The primary 13MP lens with an aperture of f/2.0 along with a 2MP depth sensor for the portrait mode shots. The camera setup is again similar to that of Realme 3.
For the selfies, an 8MP f/2.2 lens is present on the Realme 3i which is again downgraded from the 13MP lens present on the Realme 3. Here are a few camera samples of both front and back camera of the Realme 3i.
Realme 3i Camera seems very good in our initial testing. The 13MP primary lens captures good details and it produces natural colors. The Chroma Boost feature is present here too. The 2MP depth sensor also helps to capture good bokeh effect. On the front side, the 8MP lens captures good selfies. Stay tuned with us for our detailed Realme 3i Camera review.
