Launched in February this year, Realme's Narzo 30A still offers good value for money (at Rs. 9,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant). It combines practical design with decent daylight camera performance, and offers good battery life. Still, a lot has changed since then, and other brands have managed to deliver even better value. For example, the Infinix Hot 11S has a 90Hz refresh rate display, stereo speakers, and good specifications for Rs. 10,999.
The Realme Narzo 50A is positioned a bit higher than the Narzo 30A. However, the newer Narzo 50A offers only a slightly improved camera, in terms of hardware. Its body is made of plastic, but it's quite large and bulky at 207g.
While the competition offers full-HD+ high refresh rate displays, Realme has used a fairly basic HD+ display. The low resolution did not hamper the viewing experience, but the lack of HD streaming support meant that most video content did not look sharp, so it’s definitely not the best option when it comes to watching movies.
The 50-megapixel primary rear camera may look good on paper, but it falls short of expectations even when shooting in daylight. The macro camera is solely there to fill up the spec sheet.
Battery life is where this smartphone truly excels. The Narzo 50A easily managed two days on a single charge with some camera usage, video streaming and gaming. Casual users can experience even better battery life, but charging the phone to a 100 percent takes over three hours.
