Take note that realme did not include a headset already.


Aside from positioning this entry-level Android smartphone, the cameras installed are respectable. The rear camera sports a 12MP F/1.8 shooter plus two more for “macro” and blurring the background.

Here are the raw photos I took using the rear camera.

The front camera with 5MP with F/2.4 and AI features are also respectable. Here are a few of my selfie shots.

I like it that the front camera is wide enough that it has enough distance from the camera to your face.
