Here we have the realme 85g, which is india’s most affordable, 5g smartphone that you can get right now in this review. We will be looking at all the pros and cons of this device and we’ll be finding the answer that if this should be your next 5g phone or not key features of the device include a mediatek diamond city, 700 soc, a 48 megapixel triple camera setup. On the back, a 6.5 inch full hd plus ips lcd display with a 90 hertz refresh rate and a 5000 mah battery, even though this is named the realme 85g, it is not the realme 8, with the 5g compatible chip inside. Instead, the company has reworked the whole phone when compared side by side. Apart from the display and 5g compatibility, the realme 8 seems like a much better option. The real me 85g sports, a much faster 90hz display compared to the 4g variant 60hz display. The display on the 5g variant is also a tad bit larger performance wise. Both the smartphones would do equally considering the smartphone processors stats camera wise, the real me it has a bit of an advantage on paper with its 64 megapixel quad camera array at the back, whereas the real me 85g has a lighter 48 megapixel triple camera setup on The back another major difference between both the smartphones is that the realme 85g comes with a slower 18 watt fast charging support, whereas the realme 8 came with 30 watt fast charging support.
I really like the real me 85g supersonic blue color, which, along with its dark shaded case, looks very classy. The company has also removed the day to day branding, which now makes the device look quite minimalist and premium. The smartphone features a plastic build. However, considering that this is currently india’s most affordable, 5g smartphone, we can let that one slide. Overall, the design is similar to most other smartphones in the price bracket and is nothing out of the ordinary. The 6.5 inch full hd plus ips lcd display is not stellar, but does get the work done. It has good viewing angles and a good amount of brightness. I would have preferred an amoled display for deeper blacks and better battery optimizations. However, this one does get the work done. The 90 hertz refresh rate does provide me with a bit of happiness, as it makes the display quite smooth and pleasing, while scrolling watching content or playing games using the device as a daily driver for making calls browsing social media watching videos browsing the web and taking A few photos i did not see any lagging or stutters the device handles playing light games like candy, crush crash bandicoot and more like a champ moving to heavier games like call of duty, mobile, shadowgun legends and asphalt 9. I found it struggling a bit to render a few areas while on the move in almost every panel, but the good thing is that the games did not stutter playing the games for over two hours did strain the phone a bit too much making the device warm To touch a real me: 85g sports, a triple camera array consisting of a 48 megapixel primary sensor, a 2 megapixel black and white portrait lens and a 2 megapixel macro lens shorts taken and ample light turned out decent with a good amount of detail and punchy colors.
The dynamic range is a bit off and the white balance also is a bit tilted towards the warmer side. The camera does not manage to capture skin tones properly and tilts towards an orangish color for skins. The shots that have shadows in them come out a bit patchy and with a lot of grain, low light performance is not great with images having a lot of noise. A lack of focus and detail using the night mode does reduce the grain and noise, but it does not work. Miracles, portrait and macro photography are also some pain points for this device. The 16 megapixel front camera in good lighting conditions, takes images with a good amount of detail and with punchy colors, but take note that it softens the human faces a lot and introduces an orange stone to the skin. The realme 85g runs android 11 operating system, along with the company’s own real miui 2.0 skin. On top the skin mimics stock android, with a few customizations like different logo, styles, private spaces and more. The ui is very simple and straightforward with a learning curve. That is not too high. There is some bloatware, bundled along with the device like snapchat solo, netflix, hey fun and more with most of it being easily uninstallable. The 5000 mah battery lasted me throughout the day, with heavy usage at around 25 percent left in the tank. At the end, with light usage, i was able to extend the battery life of the device to 2 days.
Charging the device from 0 to 100 was where i felt a bit discontent. It took me around 2 hours, 15 minutes to charge the device, along with the 18 watt charger provided inside of the box. Now for the verdict, starting at rupees 14. 999. The real me 85g is a decent smartphone with a number of good features. Like 5g support. A 90 hertz display a long, lasting battery and more. There are also a few pitfalls, like the camera performance being lackluster, but overall, the phone is a good option. If you are already looking for an upgrade. However, if you are looking just to get a 5g compatible smartphone, i would recommend that you wait a bit and get a better spec smartphone around the same price in the future, when 5g rolls out in india that’s it for the review of the realme 85g.
