One thing that may disappoint is that the resolution is HD + (1600 x 720) which is fine for viewing every day but not as sharp as a full-HD + display. Corning Gorilla Glass 3+ Protection has also been used on the screen of Realme 5s Smartphone.

Realme 5s Smartphone : Performance and Battery life

The Realme 5s is a big Smartphone, even in the pocket and with one hand. The Realme 5s Smartphone's display is quite bright when used outdoors, not only where the noise is heard from the earpiece even where there is noise. Android ran well and multitasking was also manageable in our experience.

While switching between heavy apps, the Realme 5s Smartphone did slow down a bit but for the most part our experience was good. Realme 5s Smartphone does not get very hot but it is definitely hot during gaming. Snapdragon 665 is not the best processor for heavy games but PUBG Mobile works well on low or medium settings, PUBG Mobile Lite is more suited for this Realme 5s Smartphone. Games like Alto's Odyssey did well.  Please note that there is no audio enhancement for the speaker.

Like Realme 5Realme 5s Smartphone also has a 5,000 mAh battery, but we have seen an increase in our battery loop test runtime. The Realme 5s Smartphone lasted for a total of 27 hours and 16 minutes, which is extremely impressive. Remember that the Reality 5 smartphone was supported for 22 hours. With normal use, the Realme 5s Smartphone can support up to two days.

This Realme 5s Smartphone of the Realme brand does not support fast charging, nor is the charger found with the Realme 5s Smartphone more powerful. The battery of Realme 5s Smartphone charged up to 23 percent in half an hour and the Realme 5s Smartphone battery was charged 43 percent in one hour which is not very good.

Realme 5s Smartphone : Cameras

Realme 5 was the first Smartphone in India to come with four cameras for less than Rs 10,000Realme 5s Smartphone has a 48 megapixel camera sensor instead of 12 megapixels. The Realme 5s Smartphone's camera comes  with PDAF support and 10x digital zoom. The other three rear cameras are similar to the Realme 5.

Realme 5s Smartphone has an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel depth camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera sensor have been given. Realme 5s Smartphone has also a 13-megapixel front camera for selfie and video calling, its aperture is F / 2.0. You will be familiar with the camera app, there will be buttons for wide-angle lens, HDR, flash etc. above the viewfinder, while the shooting mode shortcut and shutton button are placed below.

The Realme 5s Smartphone's wide-angle camera can be used for video shooting and the nightscape mode also works with it. There is still no option to adjust background blur in portrait mode. Nightscape cannot be used to take selfies.

In daylight, the primary camera sensor captures better dynamic range and details compared to Realme 5. Portrait mode handles well with better exposure and skin tone. Good contrast is also seen in close-up shots with good details.

The Realme 5s Smartphone's camera app saves the 12-megapixel picture by default, but you can also save a full 48-megapixel picture if you want. Compared to the primary camera sensor, pictures taken with the wide-angle camera lacked details and colors also did not look right.

The Realme 5s Smartphone's macro camera comes with low resolution but if the light is sufficient then you can also capture sharp shots. In low light, Realme 5 struggles a lot but Realme 5s Smartphone takes pictures with slightly better white balance and colors.

Nightscape helps a little in correcting exposure and get better details, but Realme 5s Smartphone is not always a clear winner. In some cases we preferred shots taken from Realme 5. The selfie taken during the day came with a natural skin tone and perfect detail.

 A little work is still needed on portrait mode as the background blur effect is very aggressive.In low light, the selfie camera struggles with the details, as well as a glimpse of noise in the photos. You can also shoot with a wide-angle camera but the quality drops. Video quality was below average even at 1080 resolution in low light.

Our Decision

The Realme 5s Smartphone is a very minor upgrade version of the company's Realme 5.  The new primary camera sensor provides slightly better results in daylight but still struggles in low light in stills and video. To stay in the competition, we feel that more could have been done with Realme 5s Smartphone. When Realme 5 was launched a few months back, it was a good Smartphone but now there are also new options in the market such as Redmi Note 8 (review) and Vivo U20 (review), both come with high resolution display.
