Feel like a pro with the realme pro 10 5G!
Sugboph got a first look at the new realme model and we took the liberty of reviewing the new phone series so you won’t have to. Here’s what we think of the new realme 10 Pro.
What does the realme 10 pro have to offer? How was the overall experience of using the new model? Let’s break it down.
Form and Design
The first thing that’s noticeable is the phone’s rectangular shape. Unlike the realme 10 Pro+, the 10 Pro’s borders have a matte finish. The phone is fairly light which makes it a great phone to carry around. However, it is a bit difficult to grip because it doesn’t have sloped edges.
Let’s head to the color, the 10 Pro series has 3 available colors namely, Nebula Blue, Hyperspace Gold, and Dark Matter. The color I have is Hyperspace Gold. The back has a beautiful glossy finish and the color absolutely gives the phone a cleaner look.
As the phone’s back is hit with the right amount of light and when you move it around, it looks like there are little rays moving as well.

Displaying New Vision with A Vibrant Display and a 108 MP ProLight Camera
Display and Media
Display-wise, the realme Pro 10’s screen display is definitely high-quality. The images and displays on the phone are good and vibrant. I tested out the screen quality by watching a few videos on youtube, it was clear but could have been sharper.
Meanwhile, the speaker quality is fairly good. The sound quality was not coarse at all. The volume was also good and the audio could be heard loudly and clearly.
Let’s head to the feature people really want to know- the camera. The realme Pro 10 is equipped with a front and back camera.
The single selfie or front camera is 16MP and features a panorama. It can also produce a video with 1080p@30fps quality. The phone also boasts a 108 MP ProLight main or rear camera which can also produce 1080p@30fps videos.
I took the realme 10 Pro out on a stroll and I got to test out its camera and photo quality.
As you can see, the images are clear and vibrant but of course, there is a need for good lighting.
Overall Performance and Charging
In all fairness, the phone’s performance does run smoothly. I tried playing a mobile game just to see how the phone’s processor keeps up with apps that run in the background. After a few minutes of playing, I can still navigate the phone smoothly. There were no lags and glitches.
In terms of battery, advertising claimed that the phone’s battery can charge up to 50% in under 29 minutes. Surprisingly, the phone’s battery lasted me a day after using the phone for browsing, gaming, and watching videos.
Final Verdict on the realme Pro 10
The realme Pro 10 is actually a good phone to have. Not only is it good for entertainment and daily use, but it could also actually make a great work phone. It’s easy to carry around and produces good-quality images which are perfect for people who use their phones to take photos for work, school, or even just for leisure. However, the video quality could be better but overall, the realme 10 Pro is a catch.
