Realme X3 SuperZoom: 3 Reasons To Buy | 3 Reasons Not To Buy

Realme announced its Realme X3 series yesterday in India. The new smartphones Relme X3 and X3 SuperZoom pack some good features and come at a mid-range price. The X3 SuperZoom is the costlier one between the two and comes with some amazing camera capabilities like a 64-megapixel primary camera and an 8MP Periscope camera with up to 60X Zoom. Other key features are 6.6-inch FHD+ LCD 120Hz display, Snapdragon 855+ with up to 12GB RAM, VC liquid cooling, and a 4200mAh battery with 30W fast charging. Do you want to know the reasons to buy this phone?

Realme X3 SuperZoom price in India starts at Rs. 27,999. So, looking at the specs and price, if you are planning to buy this phone, you just need to know the reasons why you should buy this and if not then why you shouldn’t. Let’s find out here!

Realme X3 SuperZoom: Reasons To Buy

Flagship Level Processor

The first reason you should buy Realme X3 SuperZoom is ist flagship-level processor. It comes packed with Snapdragon 855+ SoC which is still a flagship chipset, despite its next model Snapdragon 865 has come.

Apart from the flagship chip, it also comes with LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 3.0 type storage, which is another good thing about its hardware. The data transfer and other capabilities of this storage are quite good.

Good Camera with Amazing Zoom Capabilities

The phone comes packed with a quad-camera setup at the back that has a 64MP Samsung sensor, an 8MP periscope camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP Marco camera. The main highlight of the X3 SuperZoom is its 8MP periscope camera with OIS for 5x optical and 60x hybrid zoom. Check out the zoom level and pic quality in the below picture.

The X3 SuperZoom comes with a 32MP selfie camera with a Sony IMX616 sensor, f/2.5 aperture, and an 8MP 105° ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture.

The selfie camera also clicks good pictures and wide-angle is also useful.

Big Battery & Fast Charging

The device is powered by a 4200mAh battery with 30W Dart Charge fast charging support. The fast charger can charge the phone from 0 to 100% in just 55 minutes.

So, these were some reasons to buy Realme X3 SuperZoom. The phone also has the latest Realme UI based on Android 10, which is another good thing about it.  Now, let’s head to the reasons not to buy section.

Realme X3 SuperZoom: Reasons Not To Buy

Plastic Build

The phone is a flagship-level device, yet it comes with a plastic build, which is a major drawback. In a time, when mid-range phones worth Rs. 15k come with a glass back, Realme X3 SuperZoom’s plastic back panel is a huge disappointment.

Also, there is no major change in the design segment from the previous Realme models. You can not tell if a phone is a Realme flagship or a budget phone by just looking at it.

Display Not So Bright

Another turn down in the phone is its display panel. Despite being a 120Hz refresh rate display, the screen is not so bright. The 6.5-inch FHD+ panel is an LCD one and that’s too very disappointing in a phone that costs Rs. 28k.

If we talk about display brightness, in our testing we found out that it has only 330LUX brightness level, which is very low even when compared to a much affordable phone. The visibility of the screen in daylight is also not that good.

No Headphone Jack

The phone also doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a downside of the phone. Many users do not have Bluetooth earphones, and Realme also doesn’t offer type C bundles earphones with the phone. So, you will need to either buy 3.55mm to Type C dongle or Bluetooth earphones.

Wrapping Up

Coming to the conclusion, a phone worth Rs. 28,000 doesn’t have a premium build with a glass back, an LCD display with very low brightness and not all essential ports, I don’t think it would be a great deal for many. However, if you still want to settle with last year’s flagship processor and a good camera with wonder zoom capability, you can go for this phone.
