  1. Oppo is back to their original game of selling old gen hardware at new gen prices. Other than notch, there is nothing new about this phone. Looks like the Realme brand was a one hit wonder. Let’s wait for the Nokia X5 or 5.1Plus for the real value nitch phone of 2018..

  2. First model come with 403 ppi display nd 2nd comes with 290 something. What they produce??? They must have to upgrade here they just reduce.

  3. Processor & display have been downgraded from the original RealMe…No 1080p screen so no thank you…If I would have to buy a smartphone in that price category, I would better off buying Zenfone Max Pro by just adding 2k to get a far superior phone…

    1. वाह ! अंतर्यामी महाराज,

      specifications भी बता दो कृपा करके।
      ?

      1. Sajid bhai kya tumne big boss nahi dekha. KRK Ko bhool Gaye. Dolly Bindra yaad hai sabko.

      3. Bhai Oppo ke bare me predict karna bahut hi aasan hai. Par Xioami to surprise kar deta hai.

  10. Rs 750 off on HDFC Bank debit and Credit cards. Now the deal looks quite OK, still not great. But definitely not an upgrade. Even some reviewers were expecting it to be offered at lower price than Realme 1 looking at how competitively Realme 1 was priced.

  11. For day to day use sd450 is ok. How many users are hardcore gamer ? Only thing dissapoint is screen resolution. It should have been FHD.

  12. Big letdown sd450 and 720p display
    everyone has thought initially that it would
    kill Note 5 pro.
    but note 5 pro is still best in the segment.
    Notch ko khaoge kya.
    yes, it is better than Redmi 5 .

    1. The also mentioned Realme 2 pro is coming next month with better configurations. lets check if that will compete RN5 pro

  13. We can say that this is be failure to understand Indian market’s mentality. But atleast this company is trying to provide competition to Xiaomi. Lets wait now for Asus Max pro.. next phone.
    Ultimate winners are consumers

  14. Gogi sir compare it withLenova k8 plus which price is around 8k with 3 GB RAM and 32 gb internal from Amazon.

      1. Thanks
        BTW they are overprice for me. Me searching for mobile with above same config around 8k to 9k only.

    1. I have Lenovo K8 Plus. Though had minor niggles, it’s a good phone for that price. It have great camera, but bokeh mode not good. Battery life and UI is excellent. No performance issues.

          1. Thanks Shekhar,
            After reading your comment, today only I updated with Orio on my newly bought Lenovo K8 Plus (3 gb ram, 32 gb internal storage). Took 20-25 minutes to install. (However Orio Update files have taken more time to download as it was more then 1 gb file).
            So far I am also not face any issue. It has nice display, dolby sound, net speed. nice camera, etc.
            It has also multiple Profile for different users like window users login on Desktop PC.
            Gogis Sir, should Compare or review this model or recommend in best Budget\Economy model List as it is available for around 8 k to 10k online (MRP 12K).
