realme 3 Pro: Gaming Smartphone Performance
Flagship smartphones can be easily called gaming smartphones because of their powerful specs. Because you put in the best possible hardware, you’ll get above average to excellent performance at anything you do with the phone, be it watching shows, photography, or playing mobile games.
For devices that come at a lower price point, this slightly elevates the challenge, something realme is more than happy to take on. The realme 3 Pro combines a octa-core Snapdragon 710 chip, Adreno 616 graphics card, 4-6GB RAM (depending on the version), and Hyper Boost 2.0 to handle the most demanding mobile games on the hardware and software sides, delivering the best mobile gaming experience. The core hardware of the realme 3 Pro makes good on its gaming promise as best it can without it costing as much as a flagship.
Gaming smartphones demand power away from chargers and power banks for the most comfortable experience, and the realme 3 Pro delivers with its 4,045 mAh battery pack. Not content with just a large battery, realme put in VOOC 3.0 20W fast charging on the realme 3 Pro though sadly, it comes with a microUSB port and not a Type-C port. Still, a 4,000 mAh power pack built-in will provide you with long hours in PUBG Mobile or Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
