With only a year and a half of life and after devastating sales in India and other Asian countries, the Chinese manufacturer Realme, belonging to the giant BBK Electronics, landed on the European market in October 2019 to conquer users with very competitive phones. What makes this phone stand out? Is it worth buying? Reach more passes?

A very original holographic finish

The Realme 5 Pro phone comes with a 6.3-inch (2,340 1,080) screen only occupied by a discrete notch or notch in the form of a drop that houses the chamber of selfies. In size and thickness it is not one of the least bulky, but it is thick and not at all stylized, but neither does it feel heavy in the hand. In the back, plastic that mimics glass, you can boast a finish with a bright and changing holographic design (depending on the incidence of light) of the most original we have seen, although the fingerprint reader located above in the center It gives it an old fashioned aesthetic.

In the phone that we have borrowed for our tests, the CE mark and the symbol of not throwing the conventional garbage together with a text are printed in gold, which is very ugly all stamped ah. Fortunately, you will not find it when you buy this phone, you can rest assured, according to the manufacturer.

As usual in this type of glossy finishes, fingerprints dirty this area instantly. The good thing is that when you buy it a transparent gel case is included to protect the phone as soon as you take it out of the box.

To unlock the phone you can use the classic or biometric parameters, such as the fingerprint or the face. In both cases it works without problems, and the facial is fast.

A cudruple camera with everything you need

The manufacturer Realme has opted for cudruple cameras in all phones. In the case of the 5 Pro model with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor (the same as the Xiaomi Mi 9, the Honor View 20 and the Huawei Nova 4), a 119-degree wide-angle 8 megapixel lens (aperture f / 2.25) , another for portraits of 2 megapixels and a fourth for macro photography with 2 megapixels that allows a shooting distance of 4 cm.

As is now imposed on mid-range cell phones, it incorporates a night landscape mode that can also be activated in portrait mode but not in selfies In our tests, the camera in this mode has behaved decently, without illuminating the scene excessively. You will not find a powerful zoom, but a digital one of ten magnifications. Do not photograph with 48 megapixels by default, you will have to activate this mode in the options.
