Realme Narzo 70 Pro review: Design and display

Before starting with a review of the design and display of the smartphone, let’s look at what you need in the retail box of the smartphone. The retail box carries the handset, a silicon case, a charger, a USB data cable, a SIM ejector tool, and some guides. Realme also offers a screen protector with the smartphone, which will help its users save some money.

Now, coming to the design of the smartphone, it looks similar to most of the budget Realme smartphones available in the market. It has a circular rear camera module at the back that carries four different sensors. It also features a Horizon glass design at the back, where it gets a glossy finish on the upper edge and a textured matte finish at the other half.

It has dual speakers with Dolby Atmos support, which are placed at the top and bottom edges. The speaker is loud and clear. The bottom speaker placement is good and don’t get muzzled while playing games. However, the top edge speaker does get muzzled while holding the phone in a landscape position.

It has a bright and clear display, which works well both indoors and outdoors. Users will not face any issues while using the smartphone in broad daylight. The display shows true colour and can play Full HD videos. It has thinner bezels on the top edge, however, bezels on the bottom edge are noticeable. 

Realme Narzo 70 Pro review: Camera

The Realme Narzo 70 Pro has a camera app that offers a variety of features such as Night Mode, Street Mode, Photograph Mode, Portrait Mode, Professional Mode, Panorama Mode, Text Scanner, and Tilt Shift. These modes and functions are also available on other Realme smartphones. 

When it comes to the camera performance of the Realme Narzo 70 Pro, this smartphone provides good picture quality considering its price range. Photos taken in daylight show nearly true colours but lack details. It also comes with a 2MP macro lens, but I did not find its performance satisfactory. The front camera also lacks details, and the photos taken from it are at best satisfactory. However, photographs taken in Night Mode are good and have very little noise. I also tried its Portrait mode and its performance is good. 

Here are some camera samples for you.

This smartphone also comes with OIS support. I tried recording videos with it to check its OIS and I find it just satisfactory. 

Realme Narzo 70 Pro review: Performance and battery

The overall performance of the smartphone is smooth. I played games like BGMI and Bullet Echo India and did not find it lagging. The smartphone does not heat much while multitasking. However, it comes with a lot of bloatware and duplicate apps. You can uninstall some of them while you can force-stop the remaining.

When it comes to battery performance, it lasts for more than 5-6 days when left ideal and lasts for 1-2 days on heavy to moderate usage. It comes with 67W fast charging and takes 45 minutes to fully charge. 

The Narzo 70 Pro boasts an impressive feature called Air Gesture Control, which enables users to operate the phone through gestures without touching it. The feature includes a variety of gestures designed to simulate Android screen operations. However, I found it difficult to use Air Gesture Control effectively and believe that most users will face a similar challenge. I have watched videos of people using their phone through air gestures seamlessly, but in my case, it was not an easy task.

Realme Narzo 70 Pro review: Verdict

If we compare the Realme Narzo 70 Pro with its predecessor, Narzo 60 Pro, then the Narzo 70 Pro is a downgrade because while both the smartphones have near identical features Narzo 60 Pro was offered with eco leather back, 100 MP main camera, up to 1TB of storage and 12GB of RAM. 

However, if you are looking for a good budget smartphone and don't bother about the premium feel then Narzo 70 Pro is a good choice as the phone does not lag or heat up while multitasking and it is a decent phone even for photography considering its price range.
