Anonymous, 20 Aug 2019It's 20:9 aspect ratio.I know but look at height 165cm.. that to HD+ screen
71cm to 158cm or 70cm to 156cm also becomes 9:20 aspect ratio, i feel, useful for everybody on earth.

Realme phones are reluctant to disclose the radiation readings and compliance. Do you guys have any clue about the values from realme 5pro ???
It would be within limits but getting to know the figures is also necessary.

If you take those 48mp captures from the Pro and downscale them to 50% zoom, ie, the same as a 12mp size, you have a hugely more detailed image than the native 12mp capture and much better detail than even a Pixel can capture. Win!

Carmed, 20 Aug 2019Where is realme 4?In China, the number 4 is considered a bad luck, because the Chinese translation of number 4 is the same as the translation of the word 'death'.

OnePlus also didn't release OnePlus 4, and they go with OnePlus 5 instead.

Weak release in my opinion. Marginal upgrades across the board and the regular Realme 5 is still behind its main competitor the Note 7S in far too many aspects. Better battery and a wide angle lens isn't enough to compensate for its weakness. This device will likely flop hard.

The Realme 5 Pro is certainly a worthy challenger to the Note 7 Pro, but with the eminent release of the Note 8 Pro, it will likely struggle to compete in the near future.

Not expecting Realme to increase their market share greatly in the next two quarters with these launches.

This says the Realme 5 Pro is the second Realme phone with UFS storage. It's actually the third. The 8/128GB model of the Realme 2 Pro had UFS 2.1 storage. And, of course, the Realme X.

6.5" for Realme 5 is huge disappointment for me.. I was waiting for midrange realme with snapdragon with size about 6" max
