Realme, at its launch event today, the 9th of January, launched the Realme 10 smartphone that comes with the MediaTek Helio G99 processor, a 90 Hz Super AMOLED display, and a 5000 mAh battery. With all the hype for 5G smartphones, Realme, yet again, launched a 4G mobile phone which would surely confuse everyone. Should you buy a 5G phone now or go with the Realme 10? We will find the answer to the same in this article. 

Realme 10 Launch in India Price and Specifications

The Realme 10 4G is the cheapest smartphone in the lineup that also includes the Realme 10 Pro+ and Realme 10 Pro that we talked about earlier. As always, the Realme 10 number series is a direct competitor of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 series. Yup, the same Note 12 series that disappointed everyone with its price. Though, things have been different for Realme with its 10 Pro+ that got some love for its curved display and some hate for its UI full of vulgar ads, which the brand has fixed now. So far, things have been going smoothly with the Realme 10 series and now, we have the Realme 10 here.

As mentioned before, the Realme 10 comes with the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset which is an upgrade to the MediaTek G96 processor and gives a respectable ANTUTU score of around 400K. Moreover, it is one of the very few mobile phones that come with a high refresh rate AMOLED display under Rs 14,000. And by now, I’m convinced that Realme is that brand that makes a great phone with great specifications but doesn’t include 5G connectivity in it and then launches another version of the same phone with a 5G processor and some downgrades. Let’s see what the Realme 10 4G smartphone has for us.

Realme 10 4G Price in India: ₹13,999! 

Realme 10 Price in India and Full Specifications

The Realme 10 mobile phone is priced at Rs 13,999 in India which is a decent price if you consider all of its features and specifications. Being cheaper than the Redmi Note 12 5G, it surely would get the love that it deserves. Needless to say, the Realme 10 is the best performance and display phone under Rs 14,000 and it really is a big thing now when almost all brands have forgotten about the budget category.

But the question here is whether someone would buy a 4G phone in 2023 or not.

Realme 10 Full Review: Should You Buy a 4G Phone in 2023? 

Realme 10 Super AMOLED 90 Hz Display Under Rs 14,000

Without a doubt, Realme has done a great job with the Realme 10 launched today by making it the best performance and display phone under Rs 14,000 in India. But with all the right things done by the brand, there is a huge blunder that may be the deal breaker for many Realme fans. Unavailability of 5G would surely hit many smartphone users in India as ISPs like Reliance Jio and Airtel have already started rolling out 5G networks across India. So who should buy a 4G phone in 2023? Well, there is a simple answer to that…

Even now, it will take some time for all ISPs to give 5G network services at all places including small villages and towns. So if you live in such places, it’s recommended that you choose a good phone as per your preference without thinking about 5G connectivity as of now. Though remember that this condition applies only when we talk about the budget category. For a higher price, you must ensure that your phone is a good one and has enough 5G bands too.

Moreover, when 5G reaches every user, it would still be slightly more expensive than 4G and as confirmed by brands, 4G will not be discontinued even after 5G is rolled out all over the country. So if you are a bit tight on budget or live in a small village/town or both, you may consider getting the Realme 10 from stores like Amazon & Flipkart.

The most significant problem with the Realme 10 is its 4G processor. But other than that, the phone is literally a knight in shining armor now that we lack decent budget options. So make sure that you do not rush and choose wisely. Also, it’s better to wait for a few months before buying a Realme phone as we have seen how their prices fall dramatically. This would make the Realme 10 even more affordable and value-for-money for you.

And, if you need a 5G version of this phone, maybe you should wait for some time as Realme generally launches a 5G version of its 4G smartphones too.

Realme 10 vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 5G: Which is a Better Budget Phone?

The Redmi Note 12 5G costs around Rs 18,000 which is already way more than the segment that we call ‘budget’. So both these smartphones now target different categories and if you really want the best value for your money, the Realme 10 would prove to be the best option for you. Also, the Redmi Note 12 5G is not the best option even in its own budget, leave alone its comparison with the Realme 10.

This is everything you need to know about the Realme 10 mobile phone. With the specifications and initial impressions, it’s safe to say that the Realme 10 is really a great mobile phone if the correct user chooses it. But for those who choose 5G as their priority, the Realme 10 is definitely not worth considering. Do let us know what you think about this phone in the comments section and feel free to ask us any questions too.

Once upon a time 4/64 variant used to be priced at 7k to 9k..but now it's almost double the price.. Also if realme could have removed the RAM entirely from a digital device probably they would have been the happiest.. Sadly technology doesn't works that way...I doubt they might have cut RAM from realme and added that cut piece to one plus..

Day by day they are reducing ram from base variant.. On the other hand they are increasing RAM on one plus device unnecessarily... It's my personal thinking.. It may differ person to person

Oh, okay...got it!
Usually having 8GB or 12GB of RAM isn't that important.
For general users, having a phone with 4GB or 6GB of RAM is more than enough. But yeah, if we talk about brands giving lesser RAM at the same price as earlier, that might be a problem.
