Periscope-style camera frameworks have so far been utilized in progressively costly Android telephones, yet with the X3 SuperZoom, Realme is carrying this tech to a more extensive crowd.
Just taking a gander at the particulars and value, the Realme X3 SuperZoom appears to be good to go to be an extraordinary all-rounder. Would it be a good idea for you to get it instead of other correspondingly estimated contributions, for example, the Realme X2 Pro (Review) or the OnePlus 7T (Review)? How about we discover.

Realme X3 SuperZoom cameras: Great in daylight
The principle contrast between the Realme X3 and the SuperZoom model is the fax camera. The X3 SuperZoom highlights a 8-megapixel periscope-style camera, which permits it to accomplish an asserted 5x optical zoom. This camera additionally has a f/3.4 opening and optical adjustment. Different cameras incorporate an essential one with a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor, a 8-megapixel wide-point camera, and a 2-megapixel large scale camera. For selfies, you get two cameras implanted in the presentation, a fundamental 32-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX616 sensor and a f/2.5 gap, and a 8-megapixel wide-point camera with a f/2.2 opening.
The camera application offers catches in the viewfinder to hop to zoom levels, for example, 2x, 5x, and 10x. The zoom catches change to a vertical slider in the event that you long-press them, giving you progressively granular zoom control. You can push the slider as far as possible up to 60x, and this is even conceivable in Night mode. The X3 SuperZoom will carefully amplify a scene till about 4.9x, after which, it changes to the fax camera right to 60x.
Despite the fact that you get 5x amplification, the genuine optical zoom level is by all accounts about 2.1x, which I got by separating the central lengths of the principle and fax cameras. Most phonemakers never uncover genuine optical zoom esteems, as these are regularly a great deal lower than publicized numbers, which likely doesn’t make for generally excellent showcasing.
Normally, I needed to analyze picture quality delivered by the Realme X3 SuperZoom against probably the best cell phones I could get my hands on — the OnePlus 8 Pro (Review) and the Samsung Galaxy S20+ (Review). At 5x zoom, the picture quality from the X3 SuperZoom is noteworthy. This telephone figured out how to catch preferable subtleties over the 8 Pro and Galaxy S20+, which says a great deal. Moving to 10x amplification, the Galaxy S20+ made up for lost time however the X3 SuperZoom kept on creating a spotless picture with great subtleties, poking past the OnePlus 8 Pro.

At 20x zoom, we see that the Galaxy S20+ has the cleanest picture, however because of forceful de-noising, it likewise levels most surfaces. The OnePlus 8 Pro needs detail over clamor, which is the reason the gave looks somewhat grainy however edges look more honed. The shot taken with the X3 SuperZoom falls some place in the middle of, as it makes a tolerable showing of cleaning commotion yet in addition smashes subtleties in the shadows.
At 30x, the nature of photographs taken by each of the three telephones gets ugly, however the 8 Pro oversees marginally better subtleties. The X3 SuperZoom can prop up till 60x, and as should be obvious, picture quality endures a lot. In any case, considering the value contrast between the X3 SuperZoom and the others, it’s an amazing presentation by and large.
In low light, the fax camera catches helpless subtleties, except if you utilize one of the Night modes. The Realme X3 SuperZoom highlights Nightscape 4.0, which incorporates extra low-light shooting modes called Pro Nightscape and Starry. The previous fundamentally gives you manual controls and just works with the principle camera, while the last is supposed to have the option to catch stars and groups of stars in the sky. I couldn’t catch any stars because of a never-endingly shady rainstorm sky, yet I trust it will work, given appropriate conditions. Brilliant mode works with the principle and fax cameras.
Tripod mode lets the shade remain open longer to permit all the more light to enter the sensor, however it’s best on the off chance that you have the telephone either leaning still against something or on a tripod. This is another helpful component, and I figured out how to catch some gorgeous scenes at nightfall utilizing this. It very well may be utilized with the principle, wide-point and fax cameras.
Night mode works for the wide-point camera as well, which assists catch with bettering subtleties. The principle camera, shockingly, didn’t oversee generally excellent quality low-light pictures without Night mode. In auto mode, surfaces commonly looked foggy and grainy, and edges were ineffectively characterized. Night mode helped fix this yet there’s still a lot of degree for development.
The principle sensor truly sparkles when shooting during the day. Subtleties and hues are commonly acceptable and even the wide-point camera figures out how to keep up. Close-up shots in sunlight look great as well, with a lot of subtleties and lively hues. The full scale camera works acceptably well, gave there’s a decent measure of light around. Indeed, even without a committed profundity sensor, representation shots looked great, with genuinely precise edge identification.
The X3 SuperZoom catches selfies at the full 32-megapixel goal, rather than utilizing pixel binning for a littler document size. Subtleties are acceptable when shooting in sunshine, in spite of the fact that HDR can be all in or all out. The wide-edge camera is helpful and I saw HDR shots as more predictable with this sensor. Picture subtleties are commonly powerless in low light, yet you can utilize Night mode for both selfie cameras, which helps improving photographs.
Presently, we should investigate video. Lamentably, Realme has excluded a Pro video mode, however the X3 SuperZoom can shoot up to 4K at 60fps. You can switch between the fundamental, wide-point, and fax cameras, if you’re taking shots at 1080p. At 4K, just the essential camera is utilized. Hues look very overstated at 4K, yet less at 1080p.
Adjustment is acceptable during the day, however in low light, video is grainy and your strides can cause irritating shakes in the video. There’s a switch for Ultra Steady video, which helps adjustment for the fundamental camera. Empowering the ‘Maximum’ flip changes to the wide-point camera and harvests film for a gimbal-like impact, yet picture quality drops. The HDR switch should help the dynamic scope of video yet I didn’t see it as viable as OnePlus’ answer on the 8 Pro.
By and large, I think the fax camera in the X3 SuperZoom is excellent, if you shoot mostly in sunlight and at up to sensible amplification levels. I like the extended Nightscape modes as well, which can be extremely valuable. Be that as it may, without Night mode, all the sensors truly appear to battle with low-light stills and even video.
Realme X3 SuperZoom performance: No complaints
Realme is boasting about the X3 SuperZoom’s capacity to siphon out the most elevated AnTuTu benchmark score for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ fueled gadget. While Realme may have gotten its guaranteed 5,17,743 score in its lab, I was just ready to get around 5,08,491 focuses, which is still acceptable. Obviously, a benchmark score doesn’t generally ensure certifiable execution, yet I’m glad to report that the X3 SuperZoom feels quick being used. I’m utilizing the top-end variation, with 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 capacity.
Aside from these strong center particulars, the other purpose behind the smart feel is the 120Hz LCD show. Realme chose to go with a LCD board with a quicker invigorate rate rather than a more slow (90Hz) AMOLED board, as on the X2 Pro. The 6.6-inch full-HD+ LCD board is very acceptable, with solid hues. An ongoing update seems to have fixed an issue with brilliance that I saw when I initially unpacked this telephone. Be that as it may, I would have favored a more slow AMOLED show, for progressively lively hues and better difference at lower brilliance levels.
Something you relinquish with a LCD board is the chance of an in-show unique mark sensor. The X3 SuperZoom has a capacitive sensor in the force button on the right, which functions admirably with only a light tap. There’s face acknowledgment as well, which is similarly brisk. Another valuable element that the X2 Pro has yet is missing here is sound system speakers. The X3 SuperZoom needs to manage with a solitary base terminating speaker. It’s noisy, and there’s Dolby Atmos as well, yet the experience isn’t as vivid as I would have enjoyed.
Realme UI, based Android 10, runs very well on the X3 SuperZoom. I saw the equivalent helpful customisations and easy routes that we’ve seen in other late Realme telephones, in addition to a framework wide dull mode. You can find out about them in more detail here.
Gaming execution is fantastic. The X3 SuperZoom can without much of a stretch handle requesting games from the Google Play store. The body of this telephone gets warm after delayed interactivity however I never saw it as excessively hot. Realme says it has utilized a fume cooling framework, which appears to be powerful.
You can utilize two Nano-SIM cards in the Realme X3 SuperZoom simultaneously, however there’s no microSD card opening for extending the inner stockpiling. You likewise get double band Wi-Fiac, Bluetooth 5, and backing for the typical cluster of sensors and satellite route frameworks.
Realme X3 SuperZoom battery: Heavy duty
Battery life was strong, and even with overwhelming use, I had the option to serenely utilize the X3 SuperZoom for a whole day before expecting to charge it. The 4,200mAh battery additionally did well in our HD video circle test, going on for a decent 21 hours and 42 minutes. That is noteworthy, considering the top-end SoC and high-invigorate rate show. You get a 30W ‘Dart Charge’ quick charger in the container, which figures out how to fill the battery in a little under 60 minutes. The Realme X2 Pro upheld 50W charging, however this is still bounty quick on the off chance that you ask me.
Realme X3 SuperZoom design: Classic Realme
I’ve saved this area for the end on the grounds that there’s not a great deal that is new. In exemplary Realme style, you get an extraordinary completion for the rear of the telephone, and this time it’s supposed to be propelled by the Arctic. The X3 SuperZoom comes in two hues, Arctic White and Glacier Blue, of which I have the previous. The bended glass back feels incredible to the touch, on account of its smooth matte completion. The gadget feels tough generally speaking, and despite the fact that the X3 SuperZoom is somewhat enormous and robust, it’s as yet agreeable to utilize.
Verdict: Should you buy the Realme X3 SuperZoom?
In the event that you’ve made it this far, you likely know at this point the Realme X3 SuperZoom is to be sure a decent all-rounder. The base variation is evaluated at Rs. 27,999 for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of capacity, while the subsequent variation costs Rs. 32,999 for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of capacity. The two variations of the telephone offer tremendous worth considering all the highlights they pack in.
A portion of this present telephone’s solid focuses incorporate the smooth presentation, superb battery life, solid execution, and the great fax camera. Low-light camera execution is still somewhat feeble, and I do miss having sound system speakers.
The Realme X3 SuperZoom covers with the Realme X2 Pro (Review) a piece, yet rather than supplant it, I believe there’s sufficient explanation behind both to coincide. With the X2 Pro, you don’t get the all-inclusive zoom range and second selfie camera, however then again, you get a more extravagant HDR10+ affirmed AMOLED show, sound system speakers, and 50W quick charging.
At last, everything relies upon what you need from your cell phone. On the off chance that a fax camera with a long zoom extend is a higher need, at that point the X3 SuperZoom is the undeniable decision. Else, on the off chance that you watch recordings much more than you take photographs, at that point I feel the Realme X2 Pro or even the OnePlus 7T (Review) are as yet extraordinary alternatives.
