Realme Smartphone Lineup Guide (Philippines)

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

We’re now nearing the middle of 2020! realme Philippines mostly replaced the lower end of its smartphone lineup since the start of the year. With that in mind, it’s about time to update my Realme smartphone lineup guide!

Despite our current situation, realme still manages to sell 10 million smartphones in the first four months of 2020! This helped the company maintain the seventh spot in Counterpoint’s list of top global smartphone brands in terms of shipments in the first quarter of 2020! With that, realme now has 35 MILLION global users.

That’s not stopping anytime soon since realme BASICALLY did an OVERHAUL of its smartphone lineup in the Philippines. If you’re really on a tight budget, you can go for either the realme C3 or the realme 5i. Want the latest and the best that the company has to offer in the midrange? Then go for one of the phones in the realme 6 Series!

NOTE: The phones in this list are the ones OFFICIALLY launched by realme Philippines. These are readily available through its concept stores, authorized retailers, and its official online stores. Other phones like the realme X50 Pro that pop up here are imported from other countries.

Budget Options
realme C3 | realme 5i

Midrange Options
realme 6i | realme 6 | realme 6 Pro

realme C3

Who is this for?
Like its predecessor, the realme C3 is mainly for first-time smartphone buyers who are on a super-tight budget. The difference now is you can confidently play mobile games thanks to its MediaTek Helio G70 processor. This was the first realme phone to carry the company’s realme UI skin on top of Android 10.

Who is this for?
If you can spare an extra P500 to P1,000, the realme 5i is a great option if you need that ultrawide sensor. Performance may be a bit behind with the Snapdragon 665 processor but it can run most games fine. The software is a bit behind out of the box, but a realme UI update is coming for the 5i.

If you use your phone heavily for games and are contented with the cameras, then the realme 6 is for you!

Who is this for?
If you need that second wide-angle front camera OR the 12MP telephoto rear camera, then get the realme 6 Pro. The display differences between the 6 and 6 Pro are so small. (just a 0.1-inch difference) Most of what you get in this phone can be found in the realme 6.
