Been using since release. Never lags and still smooth. Dropped a few times but the screen still holds up. Its oct 2023 and still receiving updates from Realme. Thank you very much for this phone!
Best phone ever, flawless , except IP protection, Phone have 4K video ad it is fast, very fast
enabling the GT mode on this phone actually makes the phone slower.. this smartphone is flawed all-around
Azhen89, 27 Jul 2023It just did release in my country - Bulgaria , global version here.Does your camera lag after updating it to Android 13
I just updated mine to Android 13 UI4.0 it's ok but my camera lags when I starting shooting videos in 1080 30/60 fps and 4k 30/60 fps.. Can I get any help how to fix it

Yellow is very stylish, ba... moreNormal use is ok, but sucks if gaming heavily or use heavily, battery will drain fast, overheating. The 65W charging is proprietary and it is a love and hate, only can get 65W with it's proprietary charger and cable. Out of it, it is just restrict to 18W. Well, at least with some other brand of smartphone, I can get 27W with USB-PD. I think the best thing about this phone is still retain the age old 3.5mm jack. Then, this phone is not officially sold at my country, would be pretty much very hard to get repaired if anything happen to the phone.

The SD888 does overheat, while not much out perform the SD870 inside POCO F3. Despite the UI is clean, it does has that weird lag, maybe is due to the ColorOS UI. Battery life is not great, just ok. I think the best iteration would be the GT Neo 3, which is much more balance, and has good camera. Yes, for it's time, it is among the cheapest SD888, but SD888 is a heating disaster if heavy and prolong gaming.
Great performance, great styling (I got yellow one) but you have to leave it naked - without silicone cover. Software has flaws: Wifi turns on itself sometimes, Ring sound starts ringing quietly first and then increases gradually. That is not optional!
Proximity sensor stopped working after 1 year of use. I installed another Dialer app to keep screen on while ringing. Sound is a bit quiet. Power button is exactly opposite of the volume buttons, which can be a problem. Phone camera is mediocre. Built quality is very good. Automatic software updates are working in some countries only. In mine I had to manually download it and install it.
Excellent performance! Extremely fast phone for that kind of money. Yellow is very stylish, back side is not smooth, but feels like leather. Battery life is 2 full days with a lot of onscreen time. Camera is mediocre, 64Mpix is more noisy than 12mpix mode (regular photo mode), but you can crop a lot. There is a lot of bloatware added, so I needed 2 hours to get rid of it, thanks to a Reddit article. Basically you can safely remove anything which is not native to Android stock rom and it still works just fine (but gets even snappier and extends battery life!). Charger is monstrous, cable is thick and only 50cm long. Sound is pretty quiet. I have to keep it at max volume all the time to hear rings. It uses both bottom speaker and ear speaker for music playback and lacks bass. Screen is color accurate, but a bit darkish. For me It works perfectly fine at 60Hz, 120hz are a bit of overkill. I hope they release Android 13 which will make it last at least until 2025.

Fastest cpu (at the time of release), fast charging, decent screen and low price. I'm pretty sure it was the cheapest sd888 phone that came out. Plus most phones at this price range have mediocre camera quality. This phone is for a specific group of buyers, not that much of an all rounder
alhurmzy, 13 Jun 2022its nice device but it cannot recognize the usb drive (flash memory) Need to enable OTG in setting.my setting in drop down menu.just on then can detetct the usb drive.
JS, 20 Oct 2022Is wireless charging supported?i currently using this phone. no wireless charging
Is wireless charging supported?
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2022The camera is 4K 64 MB pixels it's not bad. What camera you expected ? 9K?it's not about megapixel count everytime..megapixel doesn't make a camera good..it's all about sensors and how they optimise it with their software
