The cheapest with quad-cam and SD665 in the Philippines yet

At PHP 6,990, realme 5i is the most affordable in the country with the 11nm Snapdragon 665 mid-range SoC and a quad-camera system. And for me, it is more than just a speedy budget camera phone.

Here are the best highlights of the realme 5i: 

Top 5 highlights of realme 5i, a tough to beat budget phone

1. Attractive design - The realme 5i boasts a very attractive design for the price. In particular, I like the "Van Sunlight" 3D textured finish that shows sunlight-like rays. We also mentioned that it is textured and that's a good thing as it isn't prone to scratches and smudges. In front, it goes with a big display with a small notch to house the selfie cam and pretty slim bezels that resulted in 89 percent of screen real estate.

2. Big display - As mentioned, the phone has a massive 6.5-inch panel. Even if it only has HD+ resolution, that's still impressive considering the price. Besides, the screen is far from bad. It has a respectable viewing experience for indoor usage. For me, it is more than decent for watching videos, playing games, and viewing different things on your phone.

3. Fast performance - The key feature of this device is its 11nm Snapdragon 665 AIE octa-core processor. In case you do not know, that is the fastest chipset at this price point yet. It is paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage as well. Most phones in this price point only have 32GB storage. Its chip and storage combo makes it a speedy phone for social media use and even light gaming.

4. Massive battery life - 5,000mAh of juice is no joke. In our test, it lasted for around 20 hours in our PC Mark battery test. In real life, that's more than enough for 1 whole day of battery life. If you are not a heavy user, it can easily last for 2 days. Charging time at 10W is not the fastest around, but still, 5,000mAh is 5,000mAh.

5. Quad-camera with video stabilization - For the cameras, it has the same cameras found on the realme 5. It has the 12MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-camera system that has an ultra-wide mode, macro mode, and bokeh mode. For the software, it has Nightscape and Chroma Boost. Compared to the realme 5i, it now has EIS for video stabilization.
