Realme 3 Android 9 Pie smartphone features a 6.2-inch display, Helio P70 chipset, 13 MP selfie camera, 13 MP + 2 MP dual rear camera, up to 4 GB RAM, up to 64 GB internal memory, and a 4230 mAh battery.
Realme adds that there are no ads in the user interface of the phone, unlike what obtains with phones from some of the competition. We wonder whose sub that is, but we are sure you have used a smartphone and found ads popping up at random on it.
A Pro version is expected in April 2019.

MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict
This is a very interesting proposition, especially because it is being pushed as a direct competitor to one of Xiaomi’s phones. Xiaomi is known for delivering great value at the most affordable prices. As such, most brands avoid a direct comparison with Xiaomi smartphones. But not in the case of the Realme 3.
The manufacturer took the time to compare it to the Redmi Note 7, and it holds its own quite well.
Realme 3 offers as much value as you can get for its price. If hunting for a smartphone in its class, you should definitely give it a serious look.
