Realme X3 SuperZoom review: An excellent smartphone, but not quite the 'camera monster' we were expecting

The Realme X3 SuperZoom offers excellent camera flexibility but average overall camera quality.

July 12, 2020 / 03:56 PM IST

Realme launched its X3 series late last month. The company unveiled two smartphones in its new flagship series, the Realme X3 and Realme X3 SuperZoom. The Realme X3 is priced at Rs 24,999 for the base variant, while the Realme X3 SuperZoom's price starts from Rs 27,999. Our focus today will be on the Realme X3 SuperZoom.

The Realme X3 SuperZoom is the third Realme smartphone, after the Realme 6 Pro and Realme X50 Pro, to feature six cameras in total, and is the first Realme phone to offer a Periscope camera lens. Realme has opted for a flagship chipset from 2019 over a mid-range chip from 2020 on the X3 SuperZoom, which means you get a Snapdragon 855+ instead of a Snapdragon 765G. Additionally, Realme also offers a high-refresh-rate display and super-fast charging support. So without any further delays, let's get into the review.

Camera

Since the Realme X3 SuperZoom prioritises camera, we thought it would be best to start with the biggest highlight on the phone. The main camera setup on the Realme X3 SuperZoom includes a 64 MP, f/1.8 Samsung GW1 primary sensor, an 8 MP, f/2.3 ultrawide shooter, an 8 MP, f/3.4 periscope camera with 5x optical zoom, and a 2 MP, f/2.4 macro snapper. On the front, the phone opts for a 32 MP, f/2.5 primary camera and an 8 MP, f/2.2 ultrawide shooter for selfies.
