realme narzo 30A: Gaming smartphone unboxing and first impressions.
The realme narzo 30A is the second installment of the popular smartphone sub-brand in the Philippines. You may have heard of its predecessor, the narzo 20, which has captured a major pie in the entry-level gaming scene. realme is taking advantage of that momentum by releasing the new narzo 30A for gaming enthusiasts and all-around users in general. Join me in unboxing the realme narzo 30A, and share important deets, as well as my impressions about this new smartphone in the market.
The realme narzo 30A is a stunner with its new bright-blue box, white "narzo branding" and realme logo. The package is a slide-thru box which gives off youthful vibes. Once opened, you'll be greeted by the realme narzo 30A, a small box with some documentation, the USB Type C cable, the power brick, and SIM tray ejector. It's worth noting that earphones are not included in the box; but for a sub Php 10K price, I think you'll get more than your money's worth with this smartphone.
Ports and Buttons: Hello USB Type C!
Display and Hardware
The realme narzo 30A features a 6.5-inch Mini Drop Fullscreen display with 720 x 1600 pixels. In my initial usage, the display is quite good despite the fact that it comes with an HD+ resolution. realme is known to use high-quality LCD display, so I guess we can also experience it here with the narzo 30A.
At the top-center, we have the 8MP selfie camera which I am excited to use for our review. realme narzo 30A is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 gaming processor with 4GB of RAM. The Helio G85 is made using a 12-nm process with eight cores of CPU and Mali-G52 MC2 GPU.
On paper, the realme narzo 30A looks like a solid smartphone in its price range. With a gaming-inspired processor and generous battery life, this smartphone could pose stiff competition to some of its peers. We are excited to take this smartphone out for a spin and share our experience thru our review. That's next.
