The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro also has a bigger battery and it lasts more on a single charge.
So what you think ? in “terms of value for money realme 1 will be a good phone, but if the camera is deal for some Redmi note 5and pro will be the winner. Overall realme 1 is a good attempt at challenging xiaomi redmi 5 and pro.
