In the budget smartphone segment, manufacturers are constantly refreshing models and pushing out new ones in quick succession in order to stay ahead of the competition. They also need to stay relevant in the eyes of buyers. Realme introduced its 5 series in August, with the Realme 5 being the entry-level offering. However, since its launch, we've seen several competitors come along, most notably the Vivo U10 and Redmi Note 8 – all vying for the top spot in that coveted sub-Rs. 10,000 market.

    honest review of realme 5s for price of 10000rs 1)Battery: 5/5 2)Camera: 4/5 2.1) Night photography: 5/5 3)performance: 5/5 4)User interface: 3/5 (there are many things missing which are available in other phones) 5)Display: 4/5 (poor in direct sunlight,) 6) Slow motion video recording: 3/5 7) Sound quality: 4/5 (redmi is better) I have been using this phone for past 2 months. Although I was looking for good budget phone but my priority was camera. so i have to choose btwn Realme 5s or Redmi note 8. And i chose this one due to superior battery. The phone has good finishing, battery is super awesome with 2 days of backup with normal internet usage(without battery saver).Screen is decent, expect it is hard to see in full sunlight. But what shocked me was the camera, the in-built camera app was a disaster to my photography hobby. The pictures were very hazzy with no sharpness at all. And if you shoot anything brown or green in colour, it will look like an water painting. You will regret if you zoom the photo you have shot. And i was so frustrated that i planned to sell this and buy redmi note 8. But i found a fabulous solution to this problem, i installed GCam app which converted this camera into decent one (better than redmi note8).I have attached proof of it. And if your priority is for slow motion, then buy redmi note 8 as this phone slow motion video quality is not good. Regarding the user interface, the gallery is very confusing and it doesn't have option of slide show. This phone comes with an in built music player app, but it don't let you shuffle your playlist. The sound produced in headphones is not good if you play music or videos in apps like MX player, Google music player. May be it could be due to software. CONCLUSION: Best battery backup, install GCam app and camera is good, sound is clearly loud, performance is excellent. Better than Redmi note 8 overall.
