Realme X50 Pro 5G Review

Realme X50 Pro 5G Review

Is India ready for a 5G smartphone? The short answer is no. We have no commercial 5G networks and no clear indications that they will be rolling out in India in the near future. Major telecom operators are struggling after having slashed tariffs thanks to price wars over the past few years, so we can’t be sure that any of them will undertake major infrastructure upgrades across the country this year, and then of course there’s the massive cost of 5G spectrum blocks. When 5G rolls out, it will likely cost more than we are all used to paying now, and it will be a while before 5G-enabled phones are commonplace.

The long answer is that 5G is coming anyway, and if you want to be one of the first to be able to use it when towers do light up, you might as well have a 5G phone now. Realme and several other companies are hoping to capture this early adopter market. Besides, it doesn’t make sense to develop 5G-capable flagships for some parts of the world and entirely different products for others. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is not only Realme’s most expensive model yet in India, but it’s also the first 5G phone and the first one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 processor to officially be launched in India.

We won’t be able to test its 5G functionality but we can tell you whether it’s worth spending your money on, and whether this phone offers potential future functionality at the cost of current-day usability.

 

Realme X50 Pro 5G design

In a relatively short span of time, Realme has established its brand aesthetic and the X50 Pro looks a lot like the company’s previous models. This phone is a little blockier than other Realme models but it still feels modern. The front and rear are both made of Corning Gorilla Glass, and the screen is interrupted by a dual-camera cutout in the upper left corner rather than a notch. There’s also a noticeable chin below the screen. 

As for the rear, Realme has gone for subdued solid colours and no gradients or patterns for this high-end device although the glass does appear to have some depth and the colour shifts a little when you move the phone in your hands. You only get a choice between Rust Red and Moss Green, so there’s no completely sober option. While the texture of the rear glass appears frosted, it’s actually quite smooth and a little slippery.

We have Realme’s familiar vertical camera strip on in the upper left corner of the rear, though it does annoy us a little that the four lenses are very unevenly spaced. The power button is on the right and volume buttons are on the left, low enough to be within reach. On the bottom, we have the USB Type-C port, speaker, and SIM tray. We have to point out that there’s no 3.5mm audio socket, which is frustrating. Realme representatives told Gadgets 360 that while fans of its budget phones needn’t worry just yet, the company believes that high-end phone buyers are ready to go exclusively wireless.

The frame of the phone is made of metal and the overall construction quality is very good. The Realme X50 Pro 5G does feel like a pretty high-end phone; at least on par with current OnePlus offerings in the same price bracket. Unfortunately it’s quite a bit heavier than average at 205g. We found one-handed usage difficult because of how tall the 6.4-inch 20:9 screen is and how smooth the glass back is.

Realme X50 Pro 5G specifications and software

The big news here is of course 5G, which is enabled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and its companion Snapdragon X55 modem. If used to its full potential on a suitable 5G network, Qualcomm indicates potential download speeds of 7.5Gbps and uploads at 3Gbps, which is just staggering. We don’t know what standards each carrier here will adopt, but Qualcomm boasts of support for mmWave and sub-6, the current major 5G implementations rolling out worldwide.

The Snapdragon 865 is also a brand new flagship processor, which we’re very eager to test. It’s built around four Qualcomm Kryo 585 Silver efficiency cores running at 1.8GHz, three performance Kryo 585 Gold cores at 2.42GHz, and one additional Kryo 585 Gold core running at up to 2.82GHz. There’s also the top-end Adreno 650 integrated GPU, and improved subsystems for the cameras, AI processing, gaming, ambient sensors, audio, and more.

Display quality is also one of the X50 Pro 5G’s selling points. Realme has used a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED HDR10+ panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1080×2400 pixel resolution. You can set the refresh rate to 60Hz, 90Hz, or Auto, to balance performance and battery life. Speaking of which, the battery capacity is 4200mAh and Realme claims it can be charged from zero to 100 percent in just 35 minutes using the included 65W ‘SuperDart’ charger.

Realme offers the X50 Pro 5G in three variants: the base offering priced at Rs. 37,999 has 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage; you can step up to 8GB of RAM with the same 128GB of storage for Rs. 39,999; and the top-end option gives you 12GB of RAM with 256GB of storage, but it will set you back by Rs. 44,999.

The company says it has used LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage to make this phone quick and responsive. However, you don’t get a microSD card slot. There’s a vapour cooling system for the processor and various other modern conveniences such as dual-frequency GPS as well as NavIC support, stereo speakers, NFC, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.1 with the AptX HD audio codec.

What you won’t find on this phone are wireless charging, an IP water and dust resistance rating, a more exotic selection of cameras, and a super-sharp display. Much like OnePlus with the OnePlus 7T (Review) and the upcoming 8 series, Realme has held back on features in order to hit an attractive price point.

As for software, we have Android 10 with Realme UI 1.1 on top, which is a slightly customised version of Oppo’s ColorOS. The UI is fairly simple and sticks to the general layout of stock Android, but there are a few modidications. The Settings app has a lot of additional categories and things might not always be where you expect to find them. You also get lots of UI personalisation options including a choice of icon styles, control over the icon grid density, and the ability to dispense with an app drawer so all icons are placed on your phone’s homescreen.

Some of Realme’s own features include Game Space, which now lets you prioritise a game’s Internet traffic; lighting effects around the screen’s edges for notifications; an ambient display mode (disabled by default); driving and riding modes; app cloning; and the ability to feed dummy personal information to apps to protect your privacy.

The initial phone setup process includes a step that tries to make you download more apps. The default “lockscreen magazine” shows promoted content, but this can be disabled easily. We noticed a lot of clickbait spam notifications from the Realme UI’s web browser, and we weren’t thrilled about having multiple app and game stores plus preinstalled bloatware apps, many of which can’t be uninstalled.

Realme X50 Pro 5G performance and battery life

We obviously had high expectations thanks to the Snapdragon 865 processor, which sets a new standard for performance. Needless to say, we had no trouble at all with speed and responsiveness when using this phone. We haven’t felt any lack of performance from the past few generations of flagship SoCs, so it’s hard to tell that there’s anything new going on under the hood when going about your everyday business. The 90Hz screen, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage also contribute to this phone’s overall snappiness.

Benchmarks of course exist to illustrate what eyeballing a device can’t adequately differentiate. AnTuTu gave us a stratospheric tally of 584,447, and Geekbench 5’s single- and multi-core scores of 905 and 3,314 respectively. GFXBench’s T-rex and Manhattan 3.1 tests both maxed out at 60fps, while even the demanding Car Chase test ran at 45fps. 3DMark’s Slingshot Extreme and Unlimited scores were 7,263 and 9,837. The Realme X50 Pro 5G even has a clear lead over the Samsung Galaxy S20+ (Review) with its Exynos 990 SoC, which is Samsung’s in-house equivalent.

The Realme X50 Pro 5G’s screen is excellent, with nice vibrant colours and adequate brightness. It isn’t as crisp as the 1440p screens you’ll see on more expensive flagship-grade phones, but we don’t think anyone will complain. The wide dual-camera cutout can be distracting when watching full-screen video, but at least it’s in one corner and not centred. The stereo speakers on this phone are a very pleasant surprise – sound is very loud and rich, with a reasonable amount of bass, and distortion is under control unless you max out the volume.

We used this phone for all our everyday activities including streaming media, games, photography, and general entertainment. We only felt the rear get a little warm when running tests and recording 4K video for long stretches. We played PUBG Mobile and were able to bump the graphics quality up to HDR and the frame rate to Ultra with no noticeable reduction in smoothness or responsiveness. Asphalt 9: Legends was also thoroughly enjoyable with no stuttering whatsoever.

Realme has managed to deliver impressive battery life as well. 4200mAh might not seem like a lot these days but the Realme X50 Pro manages to make that last for well over a full day. We didn’t have to charge our unit till midway through the second morning after using it throughout the day. Our HD video loop test ran for 19 hours, 4 minutes.

Super-quick charging is one of this phone’s USPs and we did find this very convenient. The bundled 65W charger is bulky and heavy, and you’ll need to carry it around with you if it’s to be useful. We managed to go from completely dead to 25 percent in roughly 7 minutes, 50 percent in just over 14 minutes, and 75 percent in 22 minutes, after which the charging rate began to reduce. A full charge took exactly 41 minutes, 16 seconds which is longer than Realme’s 35 minute claim, but still extraordinary.

realme x50 pro 5G cameras ndtv realme

The Realme X50 Pro 5G has four rear cameras including a 2X optical zoom camera

 

Realme X50 Pro 5G cameras

The Realme X50 Pro has four rear cameras, as is the norm these days. First up is a 64-megapixel primary camera based on the Samsung GW1 sensor, with an f/1.8 aperture. There’s also an 8-megapixel f/2.3 wide-angle camera which is now fairly common even on low-end phones, but in this case doubles as the macro camera. The biggest surprise here is the 12-megapixel telephoto camera which gives you 2X optical zoom but has an f/2.5 aperture. Finally, there’s a 2-megapixel monochrome depth camera. On the front of the phone we have a 32-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel wide-angle one.

All in all, this feels like Realme checking boxes rather than choosing hardware that pushes boundaries or delivers killer photographic capabilities. On the other hand, Realme is playing up many aspects of the X50 Pro 5G’s camera software. There’s Night Mode 3.0 with a Tripod setting that lets you have an exposure as long as 50 seconds if the phone is stable. Video stabilisation is implemented on both front cameras, and there’s also continuous Portrait Mode for video giving you depth effects, plus 120fps slow motion recording.

The camera app is fairly well laid out but has some quirks. You can tap the dots above the shutter button to quickly switch between the wide-angle camera, standard, and optical zoom cameras, and there’s another dot for 5X hybrid zoom. You can go beyond this to 20X digital zoom, but you wouldn’t know this without long-pressing any of the dots. This brings up a more granular zoom slider, but strangely you have to drag your finger back towards where the lower zoom level dots were to zoom in farther.

Daylight photos seemed richly detailed with crisp focus, but slightly subdued colours. A little grain was visible when reviewing photos at full size. The phone did handle exposures well even when shooting against the sun, and we had no trouble using the camera app. The wide-angle camera works well enough and distortion at the edges was minimal. Photos are good enough to use and aren’t visibly worse than those taken with the primary camera when seen on the phone’s own screen, but you can’t expect the same level of detail at full size.

The telephoto camera is also useful and the photos we took at 2X were fine in terms of quality. Things do degrade when you get into the digital and hybrid zoom ranges but in the daytime at least you might be able to pick out some detail in the distance.

Top to bottom: Realme X50 Pro 5G wide-angle, standard, 2X optical zoom camera samples (tap to see full size)

 

 

We had a lot of trouble trying to focus on macro subjects and the app didn’t help with prompts when we were trying to move closer to or farther away from what we were shooting. Some trial and error might be required, and it doesn’t seem to work well for small subjects even if the background is in the distance.

On the other hand Portrait Mode gave us some very impressive results, preserving fine details on our subjects and gently blurring the background to make subjects really stand out. Even without Portrait Mode, there was some very pleasant depth of field.

At night, photo quality was okay but not always great. We did have to hold very still as motion blur could be an issue thanks to the shutter staying open very long. Photos were bright and colours were well represented though. Strangely, Night Mode gave us some extremely weird results with extremely distorted colours, and details weren’t improved that much in some shots. We wouldn’t depend on this mode, and we hope software fixes can take care of this in the future.

The wide-angle and telephoto cameras both did okay jobs if there was enough light around, and the results were murky but usable. We did often notice that the Realme X50 Pro 5G couldn’t decide whether to use the telephoto camera or default back to the primary camera with a digital zoom, and the viewfinder would be stuck visibly and rapidly switching between the two views. The threshold of light required for the phone to decide between these options could also use some tweaking.

Our main complaint with the front cameras is that beautification is on by default and it takes a lot of tapping to turn all the supposed enhancements off. Photos looked good even at night. Edges were defined well in portait shots, but backgrounds were sometimes overexposed.

You can shoot video at up to 4K. Stabilisation isn’t great though, and video that we shot while walking was very jerky. Colours were way overblown and oversaturated at 4K both in the daytime and at night, making video look artificial and unpleasant. The tone was much more neutral and natural at 1080p. We did notice some shimmer and jerkiness in clips shot at night, but they were bright enough and detail was surprisingly good while noise was under control.

Verdict

The Realme X50 Pro offers 5G without making it a premium feature that you have to pay extra for. Sure, 5G isn’t a practical reality in India yet, but you might be able to use it when traveling abroad and it can’t hurt to be ready. We’d have had reservations if other features had been compromised relative to other phones at this price level, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

This smartphone competes at the same price level as the OnePlus 7T and is in many ways more modern and capable – we don’t know how much time Realme will have to capitalise on its first-mover advantage before the OnePlus 8 series is announced, but for now, its lead is clear.

Among the Realme X50 Pro’s best attributes are its super-fast charging, versatile cameras, powerful processor, and slick overall look and feel. You don’t get wireless charging or an IP rating, and we’d have liked a less slippery back, but these are minor issues considering the price.

If features and specifications aren’t everything, you could check out last year’s Samsung Galaxy S10e (Review) or the more recent Galaxy S10 Lite (Review). The iQoo 3, from the house of Vivo, offers 5G on one variant and it will be interesting to see how that model stacks up. The iPhone XR (Review) could also be worth considering since its price drops to around this level when it goes on sale.

Realme X50 Pro 5G Review: Realme X50 Pro 5G Review & Rating

Realme X50 Pro 5G Review: Realme X50 Pro 5G Review & Rating

“Fool,” said my muse to me. “Look in thy heart and write,” is one of the 108 sonnets in Sir Philip Sidney’s Astrophil and Stella. Now at the face of it, one might assume that this has deeply romantic connotations but in fact, what he is trying to say is that one needs to examine their thoughts before committing to anything. Sagely advice indeed but is it always possible to do so? Take this in the context of the smartphone market where brands are launching phone after phone at breakneck speed. Where is that moment to pause, step back — or as Sidney implied examining their thoughts — and then venture forward. Realme’s latest phone X50 Pro is on paper a do-it-all device but comes way too soon after yet-another-flagship phone, the X2 Pro. It also has the title of India’s first 5G-enabled smartphone. Launched at a starting price of Rs 37,999, the Realme X2 Pro has a lot going for it but does it suffer from launch ‘fatigue’? Or does Realme have another winner on its hands? Read our review to find out answers to these two questions and more:

Design
Being the flagship smartphone that the Realme X50 Pro is, it does adhere to some of the so-called “beauty standards” for the premium handsets of the handset market.

You get a frosted back design that certainly distinguishes it from the rest of the flashy and vibrant Realme handsets. You may not be surprised to know that these do look a lot like the glass back we saw on the OnePlus 7T or the OnePlus 7 Pro last year with a matte-frosted glass back as OnePlus is also part of the BBK Group that owns Realme. That said, the similarity may not be too obvious due to the lack of same colour options. The Realme X50 Pro comes in Moss Green and Rust Red colour options and we got the former as our review unit.

Despite the new back, you do see traces of other Realme handsets on the Realme X50 Pro. You get a quad-camera setup on the top left corner and a Realme branding on the same side at the bottom. The company tried a little something new with its last flagship handset — Realme X2 Pro — that sports the logo at an unconventional place on the right side of where the camera ends. It was assumed that this was done for better visibility of the name of the brand and will also be seen on future handsets but with the X50 Pro, its back in the corner.

While the back will require a second look to know for sure that it is the flagship device from the company, the classification is easier from the front. Instead of the waterdrop notch that all Realme handsets sport, this device has a dual punch-hole selfie camera making it the first device from the company to offer a full-screen display.

As for what’s placed where, the volume rockers are placed on the left and the power button is placed on the right edge. The SIM card tray is placed at the bottom edge along with the USB Type-C charging port that is placed at the bottom and a mono speaker grille. The handset skips a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a standard for flagship smartphones now.

Display
The Realme X50 Pro offers a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 92% screen-to-body ratio. As mentioned, Realme X50 Pro is the first device from the brand to offer a dual punch-hole camera. We were happy to see video streaming apps supporting the full-screen display instead of just disregarding the whole strip as we see in some of the other handsets till date.

As far as the viewing experience goes, the device will not disappoint you as it offers punchy colours even when it was not at the peak brightness levels. The sharp and vibrant colours on the display of the Realme X50 Pro make it quite congenial for binge-watching.

The display experience is further enhanced by the presence of the 90Hz refresh rate — also seen on the Realme X2 Pro — that just makes everything snappier.

Under the display settings, you get the usual customisations such as font, font size, display size, etc, You get the dark mode support and option to set the light effects for calls and notifications.

Performance
One of the major highlights of the Realme X50 Pro is its hardware and what adorns it is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The processor is the Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset and is expected to power all premium handsets of 2020. Samsung has always been the first company to launch a device that comes powered by these processors, however, for India it chooses to use its Exynos processor, which is why Realme X50 Pro becomes the first 2020 Qualcomm flagship chipset from the company.

It is an octa-core 7nm chipset with up to 2.84GHz clock speed with fifth-generation Qualcomm AI Engine support. You also get up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Needless to say, that there were no complaints in the day-to-day functioning of the handset. The handset acts on your commands snappily, whether it is opening apps, switching between them, browsing the internet for hours with various apps running in the background.

Realme has also left no scope of lagging in terms of software too as it runs on the latest software. The handset runs on Realme UI out-of-the-box, which is based on Android 10 operating system. The X50 Pro is the first handset to come running on Oppo’s custom UI, which is a spin-off of ColorOS. Despite Realme’s claims, you do get some bloatware as it comes pre-installed with third-party apps including Opera, UC Browser among others. You also get Hot Apps and Hot Games — Realme’s own mini app stores. You also get home screen and lock screen magazines. You also get extra features like smart driving, riding mode, kid space and more and if you have a love for customisations, you will like the Realme X50 Pro just fine.

With all the hardware and software power, Realme X50 Pro will be more than enough for all your basic and power needs. Even the audio performance, that uses the speaker on the bottom and the earpiece to create a stereo audio experience is fairly loud.

Camera
Continuing its super competitive streak, the Realme X50 Pro has the best on-paper camera specs too. The device offers a 64MP quad-camera setup. But sadly that’s all the device offers as the actual performance leaves you a bit disappointed.

The primary 64MP lens uses Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor with f/1.8 aperture. This sensor does a pretty good job when used in outdoor lighting, however, the same does not stand strong when used even in well-lit indoor lighting as the images start looking washed out.

(10x zoom)


The 12MP telephoto sensor that comes with support for 2x optical zoom, 5X hybrid zoom and up to 20x digital zoom is not able to capture desired results at the peak level as the images captured are too grainy to make out anything. The 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 115-degree field of view manages to capture optimal images with more than satisfactory colour results. Lastly, you get a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture that also doesn’t do justice while differentiating in the foreground and the background.

(ultrawide angle camera)

On the front, the Realme X50 Pro has a dual selfie camera with a 32MP primary wide-angle sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor. The front cameras do a slightly better job than the rear camera setup as you get a little sharper colours but the ones we captured in the ultra-wide angle mode were again a little washed out.

Battery
One good thing that both Oppo, OnePlus and Realme handsets have in common is their fast charging support and average battery life and the Realme X50 Pro is no different. The device has a 4200mAh battery which managed to last us for more than a day when used moderately and still a full day on heavy-duty days.

But we were most impressed with the fast charge support of 65W. This SuperDart Charge is said to charge the handset from zero to 100% in just 35 minutes and during our test, it managed to juice up 85% in the same time period, which is quite close to the claim.

Verdict
When it comes to the Realme X50 Pro, the device has a lot to offer. You get a sturdy and premium looking device, a 90Hz supporting display that offers a pleasing visual experience, a hardware powerhouse and a promise of fast charge — and that is most of what you could ask from a flagship device right now. Being a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC powered device that is also 5G ready makes sure the device makes its place in the future comparisons of flagship smartphones of 2020.

The one parameter where the Realme X50 Pro might face stiff competition from rivals is the camera performance as it could have been better.

But at the starting price of Rs 37,999, the handset has certainly set the bar for the value-for-money devices to come.

Realme X50 Pro 512GB Storage Variant Surfaces Online Ahead of China Launch

Realme might soon launch a 512GB storage variant of its latest flagship – the Realme X50 Pro 5G. This will be a top-of-the-line variant, as the current lineup has the 12GB+256GB model as the highest-end configuration. The 512GB storage variant of the Realme X50 Pro 5G has received the TENAA certification, indicating that the new variant is in development. With Realme X50 Pro 5G China launch set for March 12, we can expect the new variant to show up on the launch day. However, there is no word if the Realme X50 Pro’s 512GB storage option will remain exclusive to the Chinese market, or if it will make it to stores in India as well.

The TENAA listing only mentions 512GB as a new storage option, but the choice of RAM capacity remains the same at 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB. Most likely, the Realme X50 Pro 5G’s 512GB storage will be clubbed with 12GB of RAM, matching a similar configuration offered by Xiaomi for its Mi 10 Pro flagship. However, Realme is yet to officially announce the arrival of a 12GB+512GB variant of the Realme X50 Pro 5G for the Indian market.
