Realme U1 review : Is Realme U1 a selfie-centric phone

Yes, if you are thinking that Realme U1 is a selfie-centric phone. Then you are absolutely right. Its selfie camera is its USP. But don't think that only camera is good in this phone. Actually, its processor is very good and this is the first phone to have helio P70 processor with better AI optimization.


Before going ahead let's have a look at its specifications. Realme U1  was launched in November 2018. This mobile comes with a 6.30-inch full HD touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2340 pixels at a PPI of 409 pixels per inch.

Realme U1 is equipped with a 2.1GHz octa-core processor and it comes with 3GB/ 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32Gb/ 64GB of internal storage and it can be expanded up to 256GB via an external microSD card. As far as the cameras concerned, there are 13-megapixel (f/2.2) primary camera and a 2-megapixel (f/2.4) secondary camera for depth sensing on the rear and a 25-megapixel AI camera in the front for selfies lovers.

This RealmeU1 is bundled with a 3500mAh non-removable battery. It's dimensions are 157.00 x 74.00 x 8.00 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 168.00 grams.

The Realme U1 has almost all the sensors on the phone including Face unlock. Some main sensors are Fingerprint sensor, Compass/ Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, and Gyroscope.

RealmeU1 Design and Build

The Real me U1 is a glass finished but it is entirely made of plastic. All the panels f the realme u1 is made up of polycarbonate. But doesn't look like polycarbonate because of a high-quality glass coating. The realme  U1 will be available in three attractive color variants – Fiery Gold, Ambitious Black, and Brave Blue.

Real me u1 Display

The Realme U1 has a 6.3-inch Full HD + display with a water drop notch with (19.5:9). The display is very bright and you will face noo issue even in sunlight. The display of realme u1is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Color reproduction, contrast, and dynamic range are very good considering its price. The color temperature is good but you can choose the warmer profile from display settings. There is no option to turn off the notch completely. You have to hide the Notch within individual apps. The phone does have the option to zoom Youtube video and it is annoying.
Realme U1 Review: Performance and Software

Realme U1: Performance and Software

The Realme U1 is the first mobile to have MediaTek Helio P70 processor, so we still don’t have much experience with this chipset. But Going by the benchmark scores, the Helio P70 proved to be better than or comparable to helio p70 and Snapdragon 660.

I tested the mobile at the high-ends games like PUBG and Asphalt 9. I didn’t notice any heating. The Realme U1 is available in two RAM variants with different storage.

The Unlock speed of the Realme U1 is very fast. The fingerprint sensor is extremely fast too. I didn’t face any connectivity issues on Realme U1. Call quality is excellent in my area and the Realme UI has a built-in call recording feature.

Realme U1: camera performance

Let's talk about camera performance, you get a 13MP AI main camera with a 2MP camera for depth sensing at the back, and a 25MP AI selfie camera at the front. The camera app is similar to the Realme 2 Pro. The 25MP AI front camera can capture a good photo with decent details. It faces some difficulty in the low light condition. There are some software enhancements like HDR, Vivid mode, AI beautification, etc. It's selfie camera is best in the budget phones. 

Realme U1 Review: Battery and Audio

The Realme U1 has a 3500mAh battery which can last for a day of moderate usage. It easily gives 7 to 8 hours of screen on time. The 10W charger is given with the phone, but it doesn't charge quickly. It takes around 2 hours and 20 minutes to charge this phone completely.


If you are looking for a phone under 15000 with the good camera and premium looks. You must consider this phone. You can also play hight end games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 with high settings. But if you are a heavy user and want to shoot low light photos. Then it may disappoint you.
