When we talk about value for money on entry-level and mid-range smartphones, we think of Xiaomi and it can be defended. On the other hand, the competition is very present with Realme which also offers high-performance models at more than attractive prices. The Realme 10 is of this vein and it is almost 30% cheaper now.

How is the Realme 10 interesting?

  • The versatility of the Mediatek Helio G99
  • One 180GB eMMC ROM, expandable up to 1TB
  • A 90 Hz AMOLED panel

Instead of the usual 279 euros, the Realme 10 (4 + 128 GB) is now available on sale at 199 euros on Rakuten. We also find the 256 GB model for only 40 euros more.

A surprising configuration for the price

While most entry-level or mid-range smartphones currently feature the Snapdragon 680, Realme has chosen a slightly more powerful SoC for the Realme 10: the Mediatek Helio G99. The manufacturer does not stop on such a good path to make this model more efficient. For faster data transfer, the manufacturer opted for LPDDR4X RAM as well as eMMC ROM. Such a configuration puts it above the rest and the tests on the benchmarks show it.

Despite its price positioning, the Realme 10 is rather reliable. The smartphone is able to run all your applications. Moreover, with the characteristics displayed, it allows you to use nearly twenty applications on standby without losing performance. The fluidity will therefore be there for streaming, browsing and even for games that are a little greedy. In addition, its 50 megapixel sensor promises to capture beautiful detailed shots, at least when the right conditions are met.

Good battery life and efficient charging

In addition to power, Realme has also ensured on the design of the Realme 10. It is a thin smartphone, with less than a centimeter thick, more precisely 7.95 mm. Its ergonomics have also been well worked out with its dimensions of 159.9 x 73.3 x 7.95 mm. Its design inspired by the iPhone, with straight edges, rounded corners and a non-curved screen, gives it a certain charm. It sits well in the hand, and the 6.4-inch AMOLED screen is bright enough to display information clearly.

To power this model, the manufacturer has opted for a 5,000 mAh battery. With conventional use, the smartphone easily lasts a whole day, or even more depending on your use. And, to top it off, there’s also 33W fast charging which recovers half the battery in just 28 minutes. Finally, the Realme 10 is certified Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which allows it to resist scratches and shocks.
