Oppo R15 is destined for greatness with its 6.28-inch Full HD AMOLED screen, 128GB storage, dual primary camera,  20MP selfie camera,  latest software and everything else in between.

Now if that is for the flagship space; Realme 1 is more down to earth. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get great value out of it:

  • 6-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~402 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • No fingerprint sensor, but uses Face Unlock
  • Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60 chipset, Octa-core (4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4x2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) processor, Mali-G72 MP3 graphics and 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM

  • 8,990 Indian Rupee or ~$135 USD for 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage, 10,990 Indian Rupee or ~$165 USD for 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 13,990 Indian Rupee or ~$209 USD for 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage

A quick glance through the Realme 1, we find lots of things to feel excited about – more so about the price. Blessed with a 6-inch Full HD IPS screen and Fullview display, it doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor or any protection though.

Under the hood of the Realme 1 is something in the mid-range. Here we can find it equipped with the Helio P60 chipset, a pretty fast octa-core processor, good graphics and an option to either go for 3GB or all the way up to 6GB. Good enough to run most apps out there.

Regarding the camera, you can find it sporting a 13MP-8MP camera setup which is fine these days. You will be able to get good shots out of it, knowing that it comes with PDAF and LED flash.

Moving on to the storage, here’s where options are aplenty with you being able to choose to go for either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Again, it boils down to your budget.

With a 3410 mAh battery found on the Realme 1, it should have no problem to be able to last you for a full day of use.

Finally, the latest Android Oreo 8.1 is available right out of the box. This should be able to provide it with all the new features, enhancements and optimizations to get it rolling.

                       

Conclusion:

Oppo Realme 1 is one budget smartphone but doesn’t skimp out on features. Large 6-inch IPS screen, good mid-range performance and a good 13MP-8MP camera setup are more than what the average user needs.

Oppo Realme 1 had just been released for 8,990 Indian Rupee or ~$135 USD for 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage, 10,990 Indian Rupee or ~$165 USD for 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 13,990 Indian Rupee or ~$209 USD for 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage
