Realme X50 Pro 5G (2021) review: Performance and Battery
Everyone had high expectations, Snapdragon 865 processor has set a new standard for performance in the mobile industry. You won’t have any trouble at all with responsiveness and speed while using the device. The all-new Realme X50 Pro has managed to deliver with impressive battery life. 4200mAh does seem like much these days, but the device managed to make it last longer for almost a day. You won’t have to charge your device midway through the day after using it throughout the day. The realme lab ran a video in the loop and played for 19 hours, and 4 minutes.
The battery is powered by a Super-quick charger which another mobile in the market at this price range doesn’t have. The charge might feel bulky and heavy. The device went from 0 to 25% in roughly 7 minutes, 50 percent in just over 13 minutes, and 75% in 22 minutes, after that charging rate began to decrease gradually. It took exactly 41 minutes, 16 seconds which is longer than the company claims, but still, it’s remarkable.

You can switch multiple camera lenses, and the picture is stable, keeping the same color temperature and exposure, to obtain the “seamless zoom”. For the first time in history, realme has added the Ultra NightScape feature to its camera which can help the user to capture night scenes in the darkness. It can take clear, bright, and high-quality night pictures even in 1 Lux low light environment.

Realme X50 Pro 5G (2021) review: Verdict
The Realme X50 Pro 5G has so many premium features which if you want to buy you have to go for the higher version. 5G isn’t fully implemented in India yet, but you will be able to use the high-speed internet in the upcoming future. Airtel will be the first company that claims to bring 5G in India. You can use it right now whenever you go abroad where 5G is not a practical application anymore.
This smartphone competes at the same level as the OnePlus 7T, and it is so much more capable and modern than the OnePlus Flagship device. Still, we don’t know how realme would capitalize when the OnePlus company releases OnePlus 8 series. But right now, the lead is clear. It offers the best attributes like Super-Fast charging, versatile camera, SnapDragon 856 chipset, and many more features. It’s the best mobile in your budget if you want a mobile with a top-notch processor, Quad camera, long battery life.
