I have been reading reviews about realme X for over 1 week now and seems convinced letme try thier product I have been using xiaomi phones for over 3years now. Is anyone here using realme X? What I saw on Aliexpress I chatted the seller and they said its Chinese version with Google apps. Pls to those using thier phones what are the major cons and pro of both Chinese version and global version.


Well the difference is usually the network bands i.e there are some bands which are not usually present on the Chinese band . So if your network providers is using those bands, then no 4g for u . Also the other difference is no Google apps on Chinese version. So you have to install manually. And lastly, the languages supported on Chinese versions are few (tho I don't see these as a problem sha).

All in all , it's always better that you go for the global version.

Realme 5pro price is now high on AE. I hope this is because of higher demand on this particular device.

Do you know the bands on Chinese version. If only it has band 3 I'm covered all the network providers around my area use LTE BAND 3. So no cause for alarm and once I travel out I will change my phone but till then.

I think 5 pro has always been kinda high that's y most ppp usually go for the realme q (Chinese variant of realme 5 pro)...
'cause the monetary diff is kinda high (maybe 10k) with only very minor let back in getting the q....
but I'd advice ppl to get the 5 pro if they ain't concerned about the money shaa.. nothing better than getting a global version

I think you'd only have issue with MTN LTE band shaa... but the 3g (H+) is pretty fast.

For me, I'll go for the Realme 5 Pro. Realme 5 Pro is using a higher processor, it has quad camera, dedicated card slot, higher battery capacity. While you can go for the Realme X if you are a fan of Amoled Screen which it uses an under display fingerprint, if you also don't care about a dedicated memory card slot and the dual camera.

If you want the best of both worlds, get realme X2.

I think that depends on his budget. But If he can afford the Realme X2, its the best among the three.

I think global version is 100K plus while the chinese version is below that. You can check the actual prices on AliExpress.

Yes, sorry I forgot to mention that too. Though I personally don't like phones with pop up camera.
Re: Realme Phones - Let's Discuss by yubbyres: 9:30am On Feb 19
I have a small issue that started lately. Anytime is unlock my phone when data is on, chrome pops up with strange websites loading. Dunno what caused it.
