Talk about convenience: the gadget’s power button and volume controls are on the right side. The auxiliary audio system’s mic and speaker are high on the device. The nano-SIM tray, USB Type-C port, microphone, and speaker grille are on the smartphone’s underside. The realme 10 Pro plus lacks a 3.5mm audio jack, unlike the non-pro and pro variants.
