The Narzo series is one of the series of Realme, which is an ever-expanding one. With the addition of the Realme Narzo 50A, another one has just got among them. Comprising 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory comes with a cost-effective price of Rs. 11,499. The storage can also be expanded up to 256 GB, with a dedicated slot.

The MediaTek Helio G85 chipset helms the Narzo 50a magnificently. The phone screen is expanded up to a 6.50-inch display and the resolution comes with 720*1600 pixels. The battery is power-packed with 6000 mAh and lasts for a long time with regular use. With that also, the phone supports fast charging, which adds another better feature among the other ones. The Realme Narzo 50A runs the latest Android, which is Android 11.  

Software And Connectivity

The software or the UI are the ones that affect any gadget a lot. The Realme Narzo 50A runs Realme UI 2.0, which is a dedicated version of the Android 11. This Realme UI 2.0 is the updated and bug-free version of the original UI. This makes the smartphone even better and faster to use regardless of any difficulty. 

The phone also supports a dual 4G connection, which provides a better facility to any user for faster network connectivity. Both the 4G sim cards have their dedicated nano-SIM card slots in the phone, along with the microSD card slot. 


A slightly outdated water drop-notch has been put in the top of it, which could have been a little better. With a 60Hz refresh rate, the 6.5-inch HD+ display is well and good, and mostly decent for the price range. With the normal LCD panel, one might also face a slight off-axis shift in color.

The brightness level in the Narzo 50A gives nothing to shout about and gives an average performance. It adjusts quite well with the auto-brightness, with its proper ambient light sensor. 


The best priority that Realme came up with the Narzo 50A is the better camera. The huge 50MP primary sensor camera on the front gives a better option to go for it. It has two secondary depth and macro sensors. It is a perfect combination to snap a beautiful shot. On the other side, the selfie camera gets helmed with an 8MP resolution. The camera provides a healthy and dynamic range to click pictures.

With multiple shots, the color may come out as a little muted, but it fairly retains its natural look. The exposure handling and the shutter speed is fine in its job. Apart from that, the low light shots come up as the above-average ones. They prominently borrow the lights from the surroundings and add up to the picture. But the night mode photography gives more satisfaction and finer details. It also provides better exposure comparatively. In a nutshell, the camera is the best feature of the Narzo 50A to attract buyers. 

Design And Look

Although the phone has an edgy and classy back, still the astonishing colors make it look better. From the initiation of the series, the series has continued with a unibody polycarbonate design. It also has a textured look. The camera bump in the back may feel a little different, but it makes something good out of the regular flagship smartphone. Although the fingerprint sensor responds well, the placement of the same is something that befuddles. Under the massive camera bump, it has been on the bottom right of it. Apart from that, the power and volume buttons feel good with each hold. The overall structure seems to be firm as well.

As of now, the company has launched the smartphone in two colors, which are, Oxygen Blue and Oxygen Green. The phone weighs almost 207 grams, and the lightweight makes the user feel better while carrying. The back-glass cover also makes sure that no scratch or rasp holds on for a long time. The Super Gorilla Glass on the display also adds up to an inevitable structure. It makes sure that no scratching occurs, even if the phone falls down by mistake.

  3. Dot display could have done a better job and be more appreciated with the new models.
