The world of budget and mid-range smartphones has seriously heated up in recent years, and while Apple, Samsung and Google are probably the leaders, there is a lack of serious competition from Chinese brands like Realme. The company's latest smartphones are the Realme 10 Pro and Realme 10 Pro+, which aim to reverse the mixed response of the Realme 9 series last year.

At first glance, the 10 Series can do just that. The Realme 10 Pro+ offers a new design, improved internals and more. But is it enough to beat Samsung? I have been learning how to use the Realme 10 Pro+ for a while.


  • Solid design
  • good battery
  • it's cheap


  • Too many viruses
  • The camera is fine

Realme 10 Pro+ design

The first thing you'll notice about the Realme 10 Pro+ is its design, and while it's not necessarily the most unique phone, it looks good.

The phone has rounded edges on the left and right, which I personally don't mind, but has become trendy in recent years. Some may not like it, but then again, I don't care. The power button and volume rocker are on the right, and there's a USB-C port at the bottom for data and charging.

The back has a glossy finish that looks great in the light, but it's a fingerprint magnet, so you'll want to keep a tissue or case handy. There is also a rear camera. It looks like there are two cameras on the back, but on closer inspection there are three, two on the lower module I'll talk about camera quality later.

Overall, the Realme 10 Pro+ is lightweight and feels quite premium in the hand. The design isn't necessarily groundbreaking, but it looks good enough while still providing a comfortable experience.

Realme 10 Pro+ screen

Despite the price of the phone, the display of the Realme 10 Pro+ is excellent. The phone has a 6.7-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is smooth and responsive. Although I want the higher resolution if I had to choose between the two, the higher refresh rate is more important in my opinion. The display is bright enough for most uses, even in direct sunlight.

Under the screen is a fingerprint sensor that works fine for the most part. However, it feels a bit slower than some more expensive phones.

Realme 10 Pro+ performance

Under the hood, the Realme 10 Pro+ comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor with 6GB, 8GB or 12GB of RAM. You also get 128GB or 256GB of storage depending on your model. These specifications are definitely mid-range, and as such the phone performs both in everyday tasks and heavy workloads.

Multitasking and advanced users may want to go for something more powerful; Everyone else should be fine with this phone.

My experience with the phone was confirmed by the test results we received. Here's our score:

  • GeekBench 5: 834 single-core, 2357 multi-core
  • 3DMark Wild Life: 2283

These results aren't great, but they're not terrible either. It's what we'd expect from a phone in this price range, although there are similarly priced phones that perform better.

Realme 10 Pro+ battery and charger

The Realme 10 Pro+ has a 5000mAh battery, which is a decent size. I found that the device easily lasted all day with moderate to heavy use, and the next day, and even longer when I used it less. The 67W wired charging was quite fast, with the phone going from 0% to 50% in 17 minutes. While this is nice, you can find phones that charge faster.

The main drawback here is that there is no support for wireless charging. Even phones in this price range should already offer wireless charging, so it's disappointing to see it not offered here.

Realme 10 Pro+ camera

The Realme 10 Pro+ offers a triple camera setup that includes a 108-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Unfortunately, there is no OIS. While I can understand why companies are introducing 2MP macro cameras at this point, it's not very practical and only serves to increase the number of cameras that can be advertised. I removed it, or rather turned it on.

The main camera produces generally accurate images with decent colors. The images are not very bright, but they are not terrible either. There were also some inconsistencies between photos, even in similar situations. Low-light performance was better than expected, and managed to capture some detail even in low available light, but again, it wasn't very stable.

The ultra-wide camera was disappointing, with colors flat and lighting a bit muted. The pictures were also not very clear. A macro camera should be avoided as it is not capable of capturing enough detail or texture. However, 4K video recording on the Realme 10 Pro+ was adequate: colors were solid and good dynamic range was available.

Overall, the Realme 10 Pro+ camera isn't bad, but it's far from the best. It can be a little disappointing, but in principle you shouldn't expect big problems. If you're looking for something more reliable, you may want to look elsewhere.

Realme 10 Pro+ Software

The Realme 10 Pro+ comes with Realme UI 4.0, which is based on Android 13. Most of the software is easy for me to navigate, but I still prefer the simple design of Pixel devices or other Android phones.

Unfortunately, there are many pre-installed programs and only some of them can be uninstalled. It includes Realme apps, but also a bunch of third-party apps, which I find very disappointing.

Fortunately, the software has several useful features. You can lock apps with a password, and the AutoPixel feature tries to hide sensitive information on screenshots. Some of these features work better than others, but they're still great additions.


The Realme 10 Pro+ is a pretty solid mid-range phone. It has a good battery life and the 67W charging is quite fast. The camera isn't bad either, although it can be a bit shaky at times. The downside is that there's no wireless charging, and the software has a few bugs to avoid.

If you're looking for a mid-range phone and have given up some features, the Realme 10 Pro+ is worth considering. Just make sure you weigh your priorities before making a decision.


The Realme 10 Pro+ goes up against other great mid-range phones. If you live in a region with the Pixel 6a, it's the better choice overall, thanks to its better camera, better performance, and better software experience. There's also the Samsung Galaxy A53, which does a little better.

Should you buy the Realme 10 Pro+?

Maybe, but you should consider the Galaxy A53 and Pixel 6 first.
