5G is pointless. There is no need for it. 4G is more than fine

I don't quite understand Realme's strategy... Virtually all of their phones are essentially alternatives to Xiaomi phones while being slightly worse and slightly more expensive. I don't want to sound like "why don't you give out phones for free" guy, but at prices their phones are selling they're entirely pointless, at least in markets where Xiaomi sells.
Honestly, why would anyone buy Realme 7 5G in a market where Poco X3 exists? It's been like that for a while, Realme phones just don't make sense with current prices.
The dimensity 800U is not just "competitive" it is miles ahead of its class
Especially in thermal management 5-7 degrees cooler
5-7 degrees is a generational gap of a difference
The ROG 3 and the red magic with its cooling fan get close to 46°
Meanwhile phones with the 800U almost never hit 40° for prolonged gaming sessions
Realme phones are garbage coz of the Realme UI which sucks
Realme has ruined their own reputation by releasing a new rebranded devices every other week. Nobody wants to buy a phone and see a new one released by the same brand just days later. OnePlus, despite belonging to the same parent company, is popular because they only release limited devices and spend the rest of their time on marketing and software support.
Answer is no Realme phones for me. Tried one in a matter of weeks, sold it because the phone was garbage. But at least it's cheap.
Now all of a sudden prices are hiking in SE Asia and it gets past Xiaomi's pricing without good quality control.
Talking from personal experience, I find Realme phones ok, in the price range 200-300EUR. I had 2 Xiaomi phones in this price range (among other brands, Samsung, Motorola, Sony, Huawei, second hand iphone etc.) and both of them were not ok. Now I have my first Realme phone (Realme 6) and it's working ok after 4 months. No big issues, no lag, software updates are coming regularly (I think I received 2 or 3 until now).
The Realme UI looks cleaner and with less animations than Xiaomi or Samsung UI's for example.
There are not perfect phones by any means, but for this price range (200-350EUR), I think there are a good option to have.
Of course, each individual has its own experiences. And I am not saying don't buy Xiaomi or Samsung budget phones ever again, but for now, I recommend Realme budget phones.

Don't expect anything more than a crappy gadgets with flashy exteriors and renamed OS.
Only advertising 5G isnt enough ...other specs need to shine bright too
Realme phones are low quality, just opened Notebookcheck's review. Useless display with low brightness, useless ultra low quality speaker. Good battery is its only strength and it's not enough.
