Realme X50 Pro 5G Review: Realme X50 Pro Is it really that good?
We spent some time with the equipment and here is everything you need to know.
Realme recently introduced its latest flagship smartphone Realme X50 Pro 5G in India. This smartphone comes at Rs 37,999 for the 6GB RAM variant, Rs 39,999 for the 8GB RAM option and Rs 44,999 for the 12GB RAM model.
Realme X50 Pro 5G is the first smartphone in India to be launched with the latest Qualcomm chipset, Snapdragon 665 processor. It is also the first in individual segments, whether it is a fast-charging solution and more.
This, combined with the 90Hz refresh rate and premium design language, makes it a flagship killer deal for potential buyers. But, is it really good? We spent some time with the equipment and here is everything you need to know.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Design and Display
To begin with the design, the Reality X50 Pro 5G comes with a standard design, although the color options look interesting. The phone is available in two color options including Moss Green and Rust Red.
We received the latter for review and it certainly looks interesting, but the design language is similar to other Realme smartphones at a different price point. The front panel comes with a dual punch-hole design in the top-left position.
The phone feels solid when you take it in your hand, although it is quite slippery in nature, which makes it a little difficult to get a good grip.

On the display front, Realme X50 Pro 5G has been launched with a 6.44-inch Full HD + Super AMOLED display. The screen looks good and the texts are very sharp.
The screen also supports a 180Hz sample rate as well as a 90Hz refresh rate, meaning you’ll get a pleasant experience while scrolling or playing games that support a 90Hz refresh rate. That said, the exterior brightness is good, thanks to all 495 NITs.
On the downside, the dual punch-hole design will annoy you when you’re playing the game.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Performance Review
The main reason for considering Realme X50 Pro 5G is the spec sheet. The smartphone is powered by the Adreno 650 GPU with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
It comes with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Said, as you expect, the Realme X50 Pro 5G is probably one of the fastest smartphones in India. Whether it was multi-tasking or playing high-end games, the phone conceded defeat.
We played PUBG Mobile in the highest setting and the results were quite impressive. We didn’t feel any lag or shutter during the entire gameplay. In addition, there was also a noticeable heating issue with the phone during gameplay.
On the software front, Realme X50 Pro 5G runs on Android 10 and is loaded with Realme UI. The user interface is the same as we have seen in other Realme smartphones.
You get a system-wide dark mode, which sounds interesting. In addition, there are other features such as three fingerprint screenshots, customizable icon style, screen light effect, smart assistant and more.
On the downside, you still get the Hot Apps and Hot Games folders that show you the advertised apps and games.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Camera Review
On the camera front, Realme X50 Pro 5G is launched with a quad-camera setup with a combination of 64MP primary lens, 12MP telephoto lens, 8MP wide-angle lens and B&W portrait lens. The front has a 32MP primary lens and an 8-megapixel secondary shooter.
Realme X50 Pro 5G is loaded with a host of interesting camera features. The brand has added a new nightscape mode which now supports tripod mode for a still capture at night.
The phone can record 4K video at 30fps and has a real-time bokeh video mode and more. The device also supports electronic image stabilization. That said, the features look interesting, although it still needs to be refined at the software level.
The images clicked in daylight conditions were good by nature, although we were expecting better results from the smartphone.

The wide-angle mode captures a wider area, although the details are not as great to be honest. The macro shots came out to be crisp and the dynamic range was decent as well.
Chrome can also activate a Boost to add more saturation and vibrancy to pictures. Coming in low light conditions, the results were not up to the mark.
Noise and grain appeared in pictures clicked in low light. Thankfully, Night Mode comes as a savior and it slightly improves picture quality.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Battery Review
Talking about the battery, Realme X50 Pro 5G is equipped with a 4,200mAh battery. Under mixed use, the smartphone gives about a day of battery backup. However, the major attraction is the new 65W Superdart flash charging technology.
Fast charging allows the phone to charge from 0 per cent to 100 per cent in just 30 to 32 minutes of charge. It is quite impressive and it gives peace of mind that a few minutes of charge will give you a healthy life.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G is probably the fastest smartphone we’ve seen at this price point. The phone comes with a standard design language, but the display looks good.
That said, this phone comes with top-of-the-line specs and the price point easily makes it accessible to a large audience. However, the cameras could be better and require some improvement at the software level.
Battery life is decent, though the 65W Superdart Flash Charge Settlement is on the meaning that you don’t have to worry about battery life with this smartphone. That said, if you have a budget of Rs 38,000 and want to try the latest chipset, this is the right flagship killer, you’re looking for.
