The Realme 3 looks and feels a lot different, plus the new color options specially the dynamic black makes the handset stand out. The first thing that you will notice is the unibody design, with curvy sides. On the Realme 1 and Realme 2 there was glass type finishing (Plastic) layer on the back you could feel that. But on the Realme 3 it is smoother and does give a good grip and feel.

As far as the build and finishing is concerned it is better and more beautiful on the new Realme 3 compared to its predecessors.

Realme 3 comes with triple slots, supports dual VoLTE and there is separate microSD card slot. Inside the hood this handset is using Mediatek Helio P70 12nm octa core processor that gives around 1,33K score on Antutu, good enough for high end games specially PUBG, you can check the gaming performance in the video review.

Realme 3 comes with 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB variants. On the back there is 13MP + 2MP dual cameras and front camera is 13MP. Camera is a tricky part, in day light the quality is excellent, really good portrait using the rear camera. Front camera can also do portrait but edge detection is not that great, can be fixed via updates.

Handset can shoot FHD videos and 720p slo-mo videos at 90fps. There is nightscape option that helps shoot in low light conditions, the output is good as long as you share on social networks but when you zoom in there are too many grains. However if you go manual you can get a much better shot in the same lighting conditions.

So for non professionals the camera quality is above average and for professionals who know how to use manual mode the quality is excellent.

Realme 3 can keep track of your physical activities, it by default monitors the steps you have taken, all you need to do is carry the phone with you.

There is finger print sensor on the rear that is fast and accurate and face unlock options is also available that too is really fast.

Talking about battery performance that too is also too good with the 4230 mAh battery you will get about one and a half to two days of battery life based on your usage and it takes about 3 hours or so for a full charge (somewhere around 2 hours 45 minutes).
