1 Realme X3

Realme X3 was released in June 2020 and comes with Snapdragon 855+ Octa core CPU chipset paired with 700 MHz Adreno 640. Display refresh rate is high at 120Hz. Available in 6GB or 8GB RAM variants with 128 GB ROM for storage.

Realme X3 sports a massive 6.6-inch 1080x2400 IPS LCD capacitive at 120Hz refresh rate. The high refresh rate gives flicker free video playbacks and gaming for longer periods with less strain on the eyes. Visually also you would see smoother playback and graphics. Design looks cool with a glass back, but needs careful handling or a sleeve to protect it.

Realme X3 sports a rear quad camera 64+12+8+2 with wide, telephoto (2x optical zoom), ultrawide and macro lenses. Provides you with options for wide angle panorama or group photos and as well as closeup with the macro option.

Video recording at 4k@30fps and 1080p@30/60fps with gyro-EIS with regular and ultra-modes for image stabilization is an excellent feature for Realme X3. You also get 720p@960fps slow motion video recording. It is the best camera phone under 30000.

Front facing dual 16+8 MP wide and ultra wide angle cameras, get very good group selfies and panoramas. The front camera allows video recording at 1080p@30fps.

Coupled with AI the Pro Nightscape will let you set the ISO, WB, shutter speed, and focal distance to click photos the way you want to. The Tripod Mode will let you shoot pictures of traffic streams and light trails by providing 50 seconds of exposure time. Nightscape 4.0 captures breathtaking pictures, anytime, as this smartphone’s Nightscape 4.0 features the AI mode that intuitively changes between Super and Ultra Nightscape for effective photography.

Realme X3 has the finger-print sensor on the side and supports other standard sensors. It comes with dual band WiFi, dual band A-GPS, USB Type-C. In addition to 3.5mm audio jack, it comes with Dolby Atmos stereo dual speakers.

Performance wise Realme X3 makes it to the number one spot with high performance chipset coupled with FHD+ display at 120Hz rate. Coupled with Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, you would get the best experience watching all those OTT movies/series and playing your popular games like PUBG, Asphalt or something else.

Given that 5000mAh or more has become common, the 4200mAh battery could run down sooner if you start using all the good features beyond simple browsing the internet. Expect the battery to last 10 hours to 1 day max, unless it is being used mostly for phone calls. However, the issue gets a fix with a 30W fast charger expected to fully charge in 55 minutes (as per Realme). The smaller battery also lets you get a feature packed smartphone at the same weight as most other 6+ inch smartphones.

6 Vivo v17 Pro

Vivo v17 Pro, a Vivo high end mobile released in 2019 September is a very good option to consider from a performance perspective. It comes with a Snapdragon 675 chipset with Kryo Octa core CPU and Adreno 612 GPU. Memory option available in this price band is only 8GB RAM with 128GB ROM.

But EIS for image stabilization would be missed on this smartphone. The front dual selfie cameras 32+8 MP wide and ultrawide are good with 1080p@30fps recording. Overall, the camera performance is quite good in normal lighting conditions. Low light pictures are also good with the low light mode option – you would see fewer specks in darker areas.

Vivo v17 Pro comes with an under display optical fingerprint sensor. Supports other standard sensors and for connectivity dual band Wifi, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB 2.0 Type-C are supported.

Performance wise the Snapdragon 675 chipset may be a bit underpowered compared to the top-rated smartphones in this review. But you can play popular games like PUBG and Asphalt at hires settings and multitask with multiple apps or multi tab on the internet browser. The 4100 mAh battery may run out of power sooner than those sporting bigger batteries. The 18W fast charger is quite handy in case you forget to recharge on time.
