Please note this product is a "Special Import" item which means that we import it for you, once an order is placed and paid for. Normally, these items arrive with us within 7-10 working days from order assuming no issues with stock availability. All "Special Import" items carry a warranty of 12 months. A restocking fee will apply for returns under the "Change of Mind" clause, due to the product being imported specially for you.
The Realme 5 offers excellent value for money.
The design and build quality is certainly respectable for a phone at this price point, and you get a 6.5-inch screen and a quad-lens rear camera into the bargain (though one of those lenses is a depth sensor). A battery capacity of 5,000mAh is very generous too.
The fingerprint sensor is around the back of the phone, together with that quad-lens camera, which is neatly arranged in the corner. At the bottom you've got a headphone jack and a speaker, while the Realme 5 goes old-school with a microUSB port – don't worry if you've thrown all your microUSB cables away, because you get one in the box with the Realme handset.
Get the Realme 5 in your hand and it does have a light feel to it – there's a lot of plastic in use here – but overall it's a well made and well designed bit of hardware. It's rated as "splash resistant" but not waterproof, and you don't get wireless charging either, so you'll have to be satisfied with plugging your phone in every time you want to give the battery a boost
