SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000 (2019)

Realme 3 Pro

The Realme 3 Pro is another attempt from the Chinese smartphone makers to get a slice of the midrange market. Following relative success with previous models, the Realme 3 Pro is yet another decent device to consider if you’re looking for something that won’t hurt the coffers too much.

Let’s consider this; for RM999 (6GB/128GB model), you’re getting a smartphone that Full HD+ Corning Gorilla Glass 5 LCD display, while you have the upper-midrange Snapdragon 710 powering it. The Realme 3 Pro does well in the battery/charging department, with VOOC 3.0 Flash Charge tech (20W charging) mated to a 4,045mAh battery.

The camera’s capabilities are decent—you’ve got a 16MP Sony IMX519 main sensor at the rear with an f/1.7 aperture lens that’s backed up by a 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor. This smartphone also supports features like Ultra HD and Super Nightscape (which should help with low-light shots).

No giant notch, but no punch holes or pop-up camera either; a 25MP selfie camera that’s paired with AI beautification feature is good enough for most people, I’d presume.
