“Music” Hey Guys It’s Sagar from Tecworkz. And here is my detailed camera review of the Realme 3 Pro. You guys have been asking for this video ever since Realme announced it. Like always, Realme didn’t send me a review unit, So I had to order it via the flash sales, and because of that the videos are a bit late.
But I guess it’s better late than never. Realme 3 pro is the closest and the one of the direct competitors of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which as we know has got a great set of cameras. Realme has created a lot of hype around the cameras on the 3 Pro, so in this video let us find out, if they are really as good as the company claims.
Realme 3 Pro comes with a 16 megapixel primary camera, with F/1.7 aperture and each individual pixel has a size of 1.22micron. This is the same sensor that we saw on the OnePlus 6T, so we know for a fact that it can take amazing images.
Secondary camera uses a 5 megapixel depth sensor with F/2.4 aperture. You get a single LED flash, to help you in low lighting areas. With the rear camera, you can shoot 4k 30fps, 1080p 30 and 120fps and 720p 960fps videos.
At the front there is a 25 megapixel selfie camera with F/2.0 aperture, and it can shoot 1080p 30fps videos. With these specs out of the way, let us now get to the image and video samples from this Realme 3 pro.
But before that, why don’t you take a few moments to hit the subscribe button and the bell icon next to it? This way, you won’t miss out on any of the amazing videos coming up on this channel. There are plenty of details in these daylight images.
Since this is the same 16 megapixel sensor that we saw on the OnePlus 6T, we already knew that it is capable of taking good shots. If you zoom in a lot, these images might not hold as much details as you would expect.
As a workaround for that, Realme has included an Ultra HD mode, which combines information from multiple images to form a more detailed 64 megapixel image. There is not a huge difference in the normal 16 megapixel images, and 64 megapixel ultra hd ones.
But you still have that option, and it might come in handy while you are capturing landscapes. You also get a 2x zoom button in the view finder. Realme 3 Pro doesn’t have a secondary telephoto lens, so these 2x images are just digitally zoomed in.
Colours look good and natural for the most part. If you don’t like how they look or if you want to add a bit more saturations to your shots, then there is an option to turn on Chroma Boost, which adds a lot more vividness to the colours.
I like natural looking colours, so I left the Chroma Boost off for all of my images. You get an amazing dynamic range in your images. This phone is aggressive with the HDR mode, and it makes sure that there are plenty of details in the shadows, and also keeps the highlights in check for the most part.
In this image, it did very well and retained a lot of details in the white flowers, instead of blowing up their details. Redmi Note 7 Pro is going to have tough time keeping up with this phone, when I compare the cameras on both these phones in my next video.
Here is a focusing speed test. The camera is fairly quick at switching the focus from a near to far object and back again. Even with Dual pixel phase detection autofocusing, it is not the quickest, but it gets the job done.
Accurate focusing is very important while taking these close up and macro shots. All these close up shots turned out so good, with the subject in perfect sharp focus, and the background is blurred out nicely, thanks to the wide F/1.
7 aperture. Thanks to the secondary depth sensor, you can take nice looking portrait shots. There is not a lot to complain about when it comes to detecting edges, and separating your subject from rest of the background.
But I think the main subject or face of the subject is a bit softer in these portrait shots. A bit sharper subject could have made these portrait shots look much better, than they already do. Just like with humans and pets, it can take portrait mode images of objects as well.
And it is equally good, if not better at detecting the edges, which is a big deal as some of these objects have very complex edges. It is definitely not perfect and it does blur out some parts of the objects that you would have wanted to be in focus, but I think for the price, these small things can be overlooked.
Moving to images in lower and artificial lighting conditions. Realme 3 Pro really surprised me here. I wasn’t expecting it to perform so well given the light conditions. I mean there is still a lot of noise in darker parts of these images, but the overall images when you zoom out still look really good.
Whats even better is, you get a nightscape mode which takes these lower light images to the next level. Just look at the amount of details, sharpness and light this mode adds in. These images are bit zoomed in for some reason, but they look absolutely amazing considering they are from a budget smartphone.
You need to hold the phone steady for a couple of seconds while it captures these nightscape shots, but the results that you get are totally worth it. If you don’t have the patience for the nightscape mode, regular night time shots also turn out good enough.
Like while shooting with all phones in lower light, make sure to hold the phone steady so it can capture a bit more light, without blurring the shot. That brings us to the front facing camera. The 25 megapixel selfie camera captures lot of details, and overall good looking selfies.
Since RealMe is descending from OPPO, we kind of already knew that the front facing camera is going to be a good one. You can portrait selfies, and these also turn out very good. For the most of the images, edge detection is good and accurate.
I just think that there should have been a slider to let us adjust the amount of blur in the background, coz right now, it looks a bit processed and unnatural. Dynamic range also takes s big hits while taking portrait selfies.
Almost all the details from the highlights are blown out. If these 2 things could be fixed, I think Realme 3 Pro will definitely be budget smartphone the best selfie camera. Here is a video from the front facing camera of the Realme 3 Pro.
You can see how it handles overall colours of the scene, exposure and stabilisation when I am walking around with it. Coming to the video part of things. You can shoot 4k videos in 30fps with this phone.
These are not stabilised in any way, and are a bit saturated compared to normal 1080p videos. Speaking of 1080p videos, you can capture them in 30 or 60fps. Again 60fps 1080p videos are not stabilised, but the 30fps videos do get electronic stabilisation.
You can shoot 960fps super slow lotion videos in 720p resolution, and here is how they look. I am not a big fan of these 960fps videos, be it from this phone or any other high end phone. Mainly because the quality of these videos is not that great right now.
So I prefer 120 or 240fps slow motion videos which are shot at 1080p resolution. After looking at all the image and video samples from Realme 3 Pro, I would have to say I am impressed with the cameras on this phone.
Images turned out to be really good in almost all lighting conditions, and I don’t think there is too much to complain about here. Which means this is a very good phone to consider, if you are in the market for a new budget smartphone with really good cameras.
And it also means that the Redmi Note 7 Pro has a got a very tough competition in the camera department. To find out which one of these have a better set of camera, I am going to put them up against each other in my next video.
