The Realme X appears to be a good deal for its starting price of Rs 16,990 with it's gigantic 6.5-inch AMOLED display and no notch. The camera department is also covered with a capable 48 MP Sony sensor, which is the same as the Moto One Vision although the presence of an ultra-wide lens on the A50 is an added bonus. The Snapdragon 710 SoC is also good enough to give the Exynos 9610 in the Galaxy A50 and Moto One Vision a run for its money but lags behind the Snapdragon 712 on the Vivo Z1 Pro. ColorOS 6.0 UI is a much-appreciated skin although the Moto One Vision's clean stock Android feel is a cut above others. All-in-all we have a great device in the form of the Realme X.
