narzo is strengthening its mid-tier devices with specs capable of handling games and even excellent mobile imaging. However, the business has recently added an entry-level smartphone to its narzo line dubbed the narzo 50i Prime, which is powered by a Unisoc Tiger T612 chipset with a 12 nm and also has a massive 5000mAh battery with reverse charging functionality. Continue reading this page for more information and specifics about this phone.


The narzo 50i Prime has a polycarbonate back with a stylish diagonal stripe textured pattern design, similar to the narzo 30A. It’s not a smudge or dirt magnet, but it might attract some if you have oily or sweaty hands, so we still recommend using a case. It’s thin at 8.9mm, which makes it simple to grasp and slip into pockets. The model we have is in Dark Blue, but it is also available in Mint Green. The narzo logo can be seen in the upper right, and the camera module is located in the upper left near the narzo logo but let’s skip the camera first and let’s talk about the rest of the design and build of this smartphone.

The volume rocker and power button are located on the right side while the bottom is where a 3.5mm audio jack, microphone, Micro USB port, and speaker grille are located while the nano-SIM tray is on the left side.


Moving on to the display, it features a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1600 x 720p and a pixel density of 270ppi and it also has a dewdrop notch camera for its selfie camera. Along with the IPS LCD display, it also carries a 60Hz refresh rate. When you move across its display, you can sense its fluidity. Its bezels are the appropriate size, and the chin is somewhat broader than the bezels.

Viewing angles are adequate, and you’ll still see bright colors while viewing films on Netflix, YouTube, and other services. With a 60Hz display, you can still enjoy viewing your favorite shows or playing games on this smartphone.

When talking about cameras, realme will not go out of the conversation even if it is said that it is an entry-level smartphone. The narzo 50i Prime showcases an 8MP wide primary camera along with a LED flash while 5MP wide front-facing camera for selfie shots.

Its main camera offers many options including street mode, night mode, portrait, pro mode, panorama, and more. It can shoot videos up to 1080p resolution at 30fps. To find out more about what the camera can do, we put it on the camera test.

In my use of its camera, it provided adequate quality for an entry-level smartphone.

I started with the Main Camera, which gave acceptable quality and resolution. Since it is an 8MP camera, it retains perfect color saturation and vibrance as long as it is subjected to adequate light for an image.

When switched to portrait mode, its performance descends shortly of expectations. It will take a few seconds to get a good focus with a bokeh effect. However, it will still give you a nice bokeh effect and a good quality image.

The selfie camera shows good results. The quality becomes crisp especially when HDR is turned on. I can say that even though it is a 5MP selfie camera it manages to give a suitable output when it comes to selfie shots.

It won’t let you down when it comes to night mode, as you can see in the picture it can balance the bright lights in the low light areas and it enhances the color more depending on what an image needs. Even though it is entry-level, it only takes a few seconds for it to provide good quality and resolution for a photo.

Os & Specs

In terms of software, the smartphone is based on Android 11 and is skinned with realme UI Go Edition. Unlike a highly customized realme UI 2.0 interface, this Go Edition more closely mimics a Stock Android interface, making it easier for novice users to browse and adapt to the UI. Since it contains 32GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM, data storage is a bit limited. However, it offers up to 1TB of expandable storage via the MicroSD slot.

Except for Google applications, Facebook, Messenger, and Agoda, there isn’t much bloatware or pre-installed software provided right out of the box. You may navigate using the traditional home screen buttons or the more contemporary gestures. However, there is no way to choose a simpler version of the home screen drawer. In any case, this interface already appears to be tidy.


One of the unique features of this phone is its massive 5,000mAh battery with support for reverse charging. I don’t know if reverse charging is essential but it will help in case it is needed. Charging may take some time because there is no support for quick charging here. Expect around 2 and a half hours from 0 to 100%, and in our battery test, it lasted a full 8 hours and 39 minutes with overnight movies and video playback.


Finally, let’s talk about the price. The single 3GB+32GB variant of the realme narzo 50i Prime costs Php3,999. You may believe that this is a sufficient gadget for individuals who do not require a powerful smartphone but require something that will last more than a day. And the narzo 50i Prime is up to the task. At this price, you also get a fantastic design, a respectable CPU, and a large battery, as well as the most fundamental functions you need in an entry-level smartphone.
