Best Budget Phone 2019 | Realme 3 Pro Review

The Realme 3 Pro is one of my favourite budget smartphones of 2019 so far. I’ve been using it as my ‘daily driver’ for this full review, and I’m impressed by the camera smarts, smooth performance, dependable battery life and ColorOS 6.0 software. Is it better than the Moto G7 Power? It’s definitely a serious rival!

From gaming on PubG Mobile to shooting good-looking photos and videos with the dual-lens camera, the Realme 3 Pro can manage pretty much everything. For a price under £200 in the UK, you get a well-rounded device boasting the Snapdragon 710 platform and a base 4GB of RAM. The 4045mAh battery isn’t as huge as the Moto G7 Power’s 5000mAh cell but you still get well over a day of life between charges, with VOOC support thrown in.

The FHD+ IPS display doesn’t disappoint, while you also have Bluetooth 5.0 support and a proper headphone jack for audio. You don’t get NFC support, but that’s pretty much it as far as specs limitations go.

So if your budget is under £200, I highly recommend the Realme 3 Pro – one of the best cheap smartphones in 2019.
