I bought realme 5i and after 1 week of testing, I sold it bacause the camera is decent, its output is plain and its UI is ugly. My friends told me its UI makes it looks like fake or cheap. I stick to my redmi note 7, much better than realme 5i.
How is the screen? The PPI is quite low. How is the sharpness, color accuracy and saturation? Is the phone good enough to watch movies and media consumption?

dragonballerz, 30 Mar 2020Is that the only issue for the 5i? How about the Quality of the camera? im planning to buy the... moreExcept touch issue, i am loving my 5i.
Best phone at this price.
Likes: best camera, good battery timing, good processor speed
Dislikes: can't alter time lapse or slow motion recording parameters, too big to put in the pocket,
Worst of all: it has screen sensitivity touch issue. Its known issue by realme thats why they put 0.2mm thin screen protector. Also check faq on their support page which acknowledge the issue and suggest to clean the screen regularly and not to remove the factory pasted screen protector
Hope to get software fix for this issue

How about the Quality of the camera? im planning to buy these phone because its budget friendly and the specs is really awesome. I just wanna make sure that i wont regret purchasing this device.
Hi guys im planning to buy Realme 5i or c3. which one is better? give me reasons why not to buy these phones.
They disabled the dual band wifi AC despite:
1. Being certified with it
2. Chipset supportß it
Wtf move realme.
If realme ui update doesn't give me wifi AC and fix touch issues, I'm really selling this and never buying realme again
Try not to buy this i version. Buy the s version with much better camera.
Low touch sensitivity and low wifi pick up and speed. I already update software. My device is 2 weeks old.

Anonymous, 23 Mar 2020is the touch issue that much disturbing? i'm planning to buy one, if the issue is serious, the... moreIt's probably not much noticeable if you're only using social media and browsing and watching videos.
But if you're a gamer, yes it affects you greatly.
They marketed this as a budget gaming phone and yet this issue exists.
The other issue (no wifi AC) is also very evident. I compared it to my older phone (midrange from 2016 so it's really 4 yrs old, but has wifi AC) and it's wifi is way better than realme 5i. I go to end of a wifi zone and realme 5i got disconnected already while my other phone still connected. Same goes for wifi spéeds too.
Then again, these issues (detection and speed) might be unique to my unit only. Can't say for sure.
The b/g/n wifi of this phone is true (realme site officially listed 5i specs at its website)
