The realme narzo 30A is priced relatively close to the narzo 20 but is designed to be more focused on providing better battery life and a better gaming experience. The large 6,000mAh battery is able to endure a day and a half of heavy use while the 720p display and Helio G85 are able to power thru a smooth gaming experience in older games and make Genshin Impact somewhat playable.

Our only concern is that the narzo 30A is that it does not come with a case in the box, the camera performance could improve and the charging time is long.

What surprised us the most is how powerful the bottom-firing speaker. Sound quality is decent but at maximum volume, it can easily overpower other devices in its class and some more expensive phones.

For PHP 6,490, it deserves to be one of your picks at this price point.
