Safe Build

6 3The realme Narzo 50i comes in two color options: Carbon Black and Mint Green, both of which have pleasing colors and aesthetics. The design is clever, and it serves a purpose. It has a splash-resistant design preventing water damage, making it suitable for drizzle and light rain or accidental spills. It also has a diagonal stripe design with a slimmer form factor of 8.9mm thickness, which makes it comfortable to hold and provides extra grip to ensure that the phone does not slip from the hand. It also comes with a pre-installed screen protector, making it resistant to minor scratches. Giving it to your child ensures that it will not be easily damaged and will withstand some physical damage.

Lessen Eye Strain

Dark mode, adaptive brightness, and eye comfort remain on the realme Narzo 50i. The Dark Mode, as well as the Eye Comfort, can be activated automatically. Dark mode reduces the whites on the screen, while eye comfort reduces the blue light-emitting on the screen to reduce eye strain, making it ideal for consumers who use the device for extended periods of time. This is a reliable function, especially if you will give it to your child, as you will have less supervision over how they use the phone.

Speaking of supervision, it has digital wellbeing and parental controls. Digital Wellbeing can track app data, and it has a dashboard, bedtime mode, and focus mode. The feature restricts usage and displays graphical information about how the phone was used. If you give it to your children, this is an excellent tool because the phone will limit the user automatically.

Another method of remotely supervising the phone is parental control, which can be accomplished through the Google Family group. It restricts and filters other content, particularly on Google Play. It is safe for parents, children, or teenagers, and you can control the limitations, such as bedtime and screen time, using your current device.

Long-lasting Battery

4 4A large 5000mAh battery powers the realme Narzo 50i. It is one of the low-cost phones with a large battery. The phone will last at least a day for average users and two days for light users. It has a longer battery life than other budget phones because it uses a pretty good Unisoc SC9830A chipset that is an Octa-core clocking at 1.6 GHz. It doesn’t have much power, but it can play MOBA games like Mobile Legends and Wildrift just fine. Because it is not a gaming chipset, it consumes less power, resulting in less battery consumption, and the HD+ resolution of its 6.5-inch display consumes less processing, resulting in more screen-on time. This means that the realme Narzo 50i is one of the best options if you want to use it for a longer period of time.

Lightweight Realme UI Go

The Narzo 50i is powered by the latest Android 11 OS, with the realme UI Go skin on top. The go version means fewer processes, faster speeds for light chipsets, but fewer features. Necessary features such as Dark Mode, Adaptive brightness, smart motion, and super power-saving mode remain on the device. These features ensure that the phone has more space to save some juice in order to have a longer battery life. Browsing and navigating on the Realme UI Go version is quite convenient and provides a lighter feel, making it ideal for gifting to your child or parents. The stock Google apps are also available in the Go version, which uses less power and processes to improve the user experience.

Large Expandable Storage

It has 64GB of internal storage, which is sufficient for light users. However, if you give the phone to non-technical users, they are unlikely to know much about optimizing and cleaning the phone over time. You can show them how, but if they forget, the realme Narzo 50i has up to 256GB of expandable storage. Media files, such as photos and videos, can be moved to the SD card expansion; it can also be set as the default storage device, preventing the internal storage from becoming full first. This will consume usage over time while not degrading the internal performance.

Point and Shoot

The realme Narzo 50i only has an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP selfie camera. It has rear autofocus with LED flash, HDR, and panorama. Using the device’s camera produces quality photos enough for social media. It has AI processing to ensure that the colors are accurate. The Chroma Boost and HDR mode will assist the user in capturing images similar to a point-and-shoot camera. Because of the enhanced color and balanced exposure, they don’t need to enhance the photo after it’s taken.
