for a budget phone all i can say is...its worth the price..love it❤️
Kris, 02 Jun 2020Realme 5i has a touch screen issue. So dissapointed! i have my 5i for 4months..no touch issues..great budget phone tbh..

Is this because of software bug or ia this because of its screen ratio? I mean is it possible this is because the game is developed to be played in 16:9 ratio so other screen ratios distorts/stretches the buttons' tapping area?
Please educate me on this issue as this is my first phone with longer than 16:9 ratio

Now I won't buy realme ever again. Even their flagship phones.
I'll buy slightly higher price phones from other brands next time.

If not for this quarantine, I would have sold my 5i long ago
I have upgraded to A.19 and have disabled three fingers as well as all the Convenience tools but the problem persists.
I turned on "show touches" and "pointer location" in developers options. And realized that it is NOT screen sensing issue BUT software processing issue because i can see the touch is shown on the screen and the cross lines are also displayed. Sometimes the software doesn't respond to the input even i have turned off all the unnecessary features....
Hope to get software solution soon.
If you want to use this phone for gaming. Just disable the 3 fingers screen shot and 3 fingers slide features. It will solve the touch issue....

I had a phone which sometimes worke... moreIf the touch is working by itself without you touching it, that's called ghost touch. You can google ghost touch. It's probably dirty screen or dirty tempered glass or your screen panel itself is broken.
Touch issue for this phone is different. Your tap is not detected most of the time. This is bad for gaming and typing. Scrolling is ok. It's difficult to tap buttons because they're randomly not detected.
Az7uL, 23 May 2020Can't support Wi-Fi 5GHz connection. Even oppoA5s (more cheaper) can support Wi-Fi 5GHz.It's wifi certified for up to dual band wifi AC (check the link in lower comments) but thry didn't activate it in software, so this phone only has wifi N standard.
This issue and touch issue are really annoying. Nobody can refute me by saying don't expect everything in budget phones. It's 2020 and still no wifi 5 (wifi AC) and this is marketed as budget gaming phone but has touch issues. I'm ok with micro usb even in 2020 but even this annoys most people.
Az7uL, 23 May 2020Can't support Wi-Fi 5GHz connection. Even oppoA5s (more cheaper) can support Wi-Fi 5GHz.The phone spec tells that it's WLAN --- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band,
I checked the phone's wifi options but no solutions found to try to connect to 5ghz.
So how can we connect to 5ghz band wifi connection?
Tell us REALME?????
