On paper, the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G stands out for a couple of features. First, it has an FHD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate with a punch-hole design. What's more interesting is that the phone has an optical in-display fingerprint sensor. I also like the fact that the phone comes with a built-in soft screen protector.

Another highlight of the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G is the Mediatek Dimensity 920 SoC, which is one of the best mid-range 5G chipsets. The smartphone also offers up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. During my brief time with the device, I did not face any issues and the whole experience of using the smartphone felt very smooth.

The Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G feels like a compelling mid-range 5G smartphone. However, it is not a perfect smartphone and has its flaws. For one, the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G does not have a microSD card slot for additional storage expansion. The company should have at least offered a hybrid microSD card slot if not a dedicated one.

While I liked the fact that the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G ships with Android 12 OS with custom Realme UI 3 skin on top, it is just filled with a lot of bloatware. Although you can uninstall some of the third-party apps, the phone still has a lot of third-party apps that you cannot remove from the device.

The combination of an efficient processor and a large-sized battery helps the phone deliver all-day battery life.

The Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G supports five 5G bands, and the phone supports 5G networks on both SIM slots. Overall, for the asking price the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G looks like a compelling mid-range smartphone with the latest Android OS.
