The Narzo 10A is the extra inexpensive of two new fashions launched just lately by Realme beneath the brand new Narzo sub-brand that targets younger feature-conscious patrons on a finances. We have been fairly impressed with the brand new Realme Narzo 10 after we lastly received the possibility to overview it, and now it is time for us to take a look at the extra inexpensive however equally delayed Narzo 10A. Priced at simply Rs. 8,499 in India, the Narzo 10A is basically a souped-up model of the Realme C3 and is bought beneath that identify in another nations. Let’s get a more in-depth look.
Realme is downplaying the Narzo 10A’s connection to the Realme C3 (Review) and is as a substitute positioning it as a really inexpensive cellphone with premium options. Apart from a change in design from the Realme C3, the Narzo 10A provides a macro digicam on the rear and a fingerprint sensor. There’s only one configuration with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which matches the base variant of the Realme C3.
It is shocking to see such little differentiation and the truth that the Narzo 10A is priced to fit proper in between the 2 variants of the Realme C3 with solely Rs. 500 between every of the telephones. It could be tempting to spend simply Rs. 500 extra to get the C3 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, however then you definitely lose the fingerprint sensor. This reinforces our opinion that the Realme C3 ought to have had a fingerprint sensor all alongside. It would not have value an excessive amount of extra, and the launch of the Narzo 10A would possibly annoy individuals who purchased the Realme C3 when it at launch.
The principle promoting factors of the Narzo 10A are its three rear cameras, the MediaTek Helio G70 processor, a 5000mAh battery, and a daring new search for the rear panel. You may get this cellphone in two new colors: So White and So Blue. The physique of the Narzo 10A is all plastic apart from the unspecified model of Gorilla Glass on the entrance. Not like the Realme C3 and former low-cost fashions, there is no such thing as a texture or gradient sample throughout the rear.
As a substitute, Realme has gone with a big brand on the rear of this cellphone, considerably like what we have seen on the company’s power banks. We’re unsure that that is the sort of model that folks need to scream about, so it is an fascinating alternative. Fortunately, the textual content is much more refined in actual life than it seems within the firm’s commercials and promotional photos, at the least on our So White demo unit. The emblem is barely raised and has a texture, however we may barely make it out until we intentionally tilted the gadget beneath the sunshine.
The Narzo 10A doesn’t include a case within the field however our unit did have a display screen protector pre-applied. At 8.95mm thick and 195g in weight, its dimensions are an identical to these of the C3 and it is (negligibly) thinner and lighter than the Narzo 10 (Review). In case you laid all three units (and a few other Realme fashions) facet by facet and face up, you would not be capable of inform them aside.
We’re just a little dissatisfied to see a Micro-USB port on the underside, contemplating that USB Kind-C is now nicely established throughout all value segments. On the intense facet, the tray on the left has unbiased slots for 2 Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. Realme additionally says this mannequin is “splash-resistant”.
The MediaTek Helio G70 impressed us after we reviewed the Realme C3, contemplating its value, however could not fairly deal with PUBG Cellular at its Prime quality preset, and we count on to see the identical with the Narzo 10A. Battery life has been wonderful with the C3 in addition to the Narzo 10, and all three fashions have 5000mAh capacities so there should not be any surprises there both. Equally, it is best to be capable of get a good concept of how the Narzo 10A’s commonplace and macro cameras will carry out by our evaluations of those two fashions.
However, we could have a full, unbiased overview of the Realme Narzo 10A arising quickly, and we’ll consider its efficiency, cameras, show, battery life, ergonomics, software program, and utilization expertise on their very own deserves.
Realme launched its Narzo sub-brand to make choose low-cost fashions stand out, however patrons are prone to be confused and pissed off by how comparable varied fashions are. Do you have to purchase the Narzo 10A or would both of the Realme C3 variants provide higher worth? We’ll have the reply for you in our overview, so keep tuned to Devices 360.
