Realme Q5 official: impressive ratio between quality and price (in China)

Fast charging at 33 watts, Full HD + display at 90 Hz, Dimensity 810 5G chip and even a 5,000 mAh battery that should take away the anxieties of autonomy, all for 169 euro list. A dream? Yes, because the price is brutally converted from the Chinese currency to the European one, thus without considering the logistics costs and taxation that would inevitably bring up the three figures in the event of a hypothetical marketing in our part.

But the smartphone is real. It is called Realme Q5i and is the “younger” of three brothers: Q5i, precisely, Q5 and Q5 Pro. But above all the latter has impressive technical specifications for the 1,799 yuan required in China, 259 euros at current exchange: 80 watt fast charge, 120 Hz Full HD + display, Snapdragon 870 5G chip (3.2 GHz maximum frequency), 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. In short, the three Realme of the Q5 family are among the most interesting products of recent times for value for money.

Aesthetic solutions similar to those seen on other Realme products, with which the three maintain a certain family feeling, with Q5 Pro which also stands out from the competition through an original checkered texture on the back perhaps not very much in line with European tastes but which has the merit of making it recognizable. Below are the main technical characteristics and prices charged in China. No information for the moment on a possible marketing in Europe.
