Realme Narzo 10: Design launch of smartphone in India
Like almost every other brand in the space, Realme has multiple offerings in the budget category of devices. The company has added one more smartphone with the launch of Narzo 10 smartphone in India at a starting price of Rs 11,999.
The smartphone comes in two two colour variants: That White and That Green. We reviewed the That Green variant of the budget smartphone and here are our thoughts on whether you should go for this device or not.
Realme Narzo 10 weighs about 200 gms and fits in comfortably within the grip. The phone comes in a very durable, sturdy build. There is a 48MP AI quad-camera setup at the back which juts out a little from the body by about some millimetres. Due to the rear camera placement protruding a little at the back, the phone cannot lie perfectly flat on flat surfaces like a table but it doesn’t slip also.
The back is completely flat, in a matte finish, with a unique texture and without any external patterns. It does register fingerprints and isn’t smudge-free. There are very thin bezels on all the sides of the screen except the bottom one. At the top, lie the 16MP front camera and the earpiece inside a notch.
On the right edge, a power button is present while on the left, there is a dual hybrid SIM slot with a dedicated microSD card slot and the volume buttons.
The top edge is free from any buttons while the bottom edge proliferates with a 3.5mm headphone jack, two very small holes for microphone input, a USB Type-C port and four small capsule-shaped speaker vents.
All the physical buttons come very securely wedged in the phone body and do not shift even a little when pressed sideways.
Realme Narzo 10: Display
Realme Narzo 10 features a 6.5-inch screen with 1600×720 HD+ resolution and a screen-to-body ratio of 89.8%. The display comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Dark Mode and Eye Comfort mode, both are there. You can choose between a notched display and a fullscreen one for the apps on the phone. The icon scheme is neat and they are well-spaced.
We found the screen brightness to be lacking under bright sunlight and even when it was jacked up to full, it is insufficient. The screen brightness, when indoors, is optimum. The Auto Brightness feature works well but for the detail-oriented users, the brightness bar doesn’t show an increase/decrease in a fluid manner.
