About the Phone

If you are a follower of the Realme phones, then you will not be surprised by the Realme U1 design. However, it does come with a few differences from the previous phones. A few pros and cons of this phone are:


  • Though it does not have a new design, the Realme U1 arrives with an impressive look and comfortable structure.
  • The phone has a fantastic display which presents punchy colours with proper viewing angles.
  • Realme U1 comes with a great screen size that will give you enough screen space to work with.
  • The main USP of Realme U1 is its incredible MediaTek processor which progresses for the regular P60 and can beat the mid-tier Snapdragon 660 chipset.
  • The Realme U1 does not hold back with its efficient battery, arriving with a large battery that can keep the phone alive for an entire day.
  • Realme keeps the Oppo Selfie King tag with an amazing 25MP front camera that captures beautiful selfies with proper colour accuracy and reproduction.


  • The phone does not have a notification LED.
  • The phone screen is a fingerprint magnet.
  • The rear camera of the Realme U1 is good, but autofocus does not function well enough.

Realme U1 may not fare well with its rear camera, but it remains capable through and through. As a low mid-range phone, Realme U1 has everything going for it, making it a true low mid-range marvel.
