Realme X50t 5G | Finally ‘A Flagship Killer’ Contender!

The Good
  • Snapdragon 865 Chipset
  • Big Storage
  • Big Battery
  • 90Hz Refresh Rate
The Bad
  • Modest Camera Output

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset on a phone that costs less than PKR 100,000.
If you’re still wondering about buying the OPPO Reno 4 Pro, don’t. By pitching an extra 6,000 rupees, you can get the new Realme X50t with the second-best Qualcomm chipset there is!

Design and Display

Weighing 209 grams with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection front and back, this phone mirrors an aluminum frame that looks sturdy. There’s an overall nice feel to how easy-to-grip this phone is. The Realme X50t sports a Super AMOLED touchscreen that measures an encouraging 6.44-inch. The resolution stats stand at 1080×2400 pixels with an outweighing 409 ppi density.

Corning Gorilla Glass 5 envelopes the delicate inners of this beautiful phone, and here’s the best part: Realme X50t comes with a 180HZ touch-sensing HDR10+ display that supports a 90Hz refresh rate! Talk about value for money; this is real.

Performance | Hardware

Sporting a Snapdragon 865 chipset with 12GB RAM/128GB ROM, this phone has set a new bar for getting flagships on a budget. You’d normally see these specs on a typical SAMSUNG state-of-the-art handset, but here we are and this phone is in contention for ‘Phone of the Year’ 2020.

Running on pre-enabled Android 10 OS with Realme’s custom UI, the X50t works seamlessly. App usage and multi-tasking are a standard protocol, with no lags or stutter in app performance. The 90Hz refresh rate offers a top-of-the-line gaming experience for PUBG and COD Mobile enthusiasts.

We’re trying to find a fault to rant on, but this phone is giving us nothing of the sort!

Cameras

The rear quad camera setting sports a 48MP-12MP-8MP-2MP setup in a sleek, vertical fashion on the top-left side.  The front dual-lens punch-hole setup is a 16MP-2MP module.

There’s no AI-assist control from cameras, so it gets pretty wild when taking photos. Videos are great; there’s a whole editing panel for people who love to customize their video outputs. Picture quality is okay-ish; there’s some room for improvement if Realme decide to manufacture another variant that prioritizes on providing AI assistance for X50t’s camera module.

Battery

For a phone sporting such an appealing spec sheet, a 4200mAh battery feels like a minimum requirement; it could’ve been 5000mAh, but we understand Realme’s need to cut costs at least somewhere!

The battery lasts at least a day, if you’re a heavy user. Keep the resolution optimized by switching between 90Hz and the standard 60Hz refresh rates to save more on battery hours.

Verdict

If you have PKR 91,000 to spare, get the Realme X50t. It’s 5G enabled, spec-charts run through the roof, and the Snapdragon 865 gem is the biggest reason for getting your money’s worth RIGHT HERE. The camera looks good, if not awesome. Overall, we’d recommend this phone over Oppo Reno 4 Pro, which comes with a ridiculous price-tag and a humbling Snapdragon 720 chipset.

If money is the issue and you can’t get your Note 20 Ultras or OnePlus8s – phones costing over PKR 150,000 – get the Realme X50t.
