Realme Narzo 60 5G review: Budget smartphone with mid-range aesthetic:

The Realme Narzo 60 5G has arrived as the successor to the Narzo 50 5G, more than a year after its predecessor's release. With such a long gap, we anticipated significant upgrades similar to its pricier counterpart, the Narzo 60 Pro 5G. While the new phone introduces a fresh design inspired by the Realme 11 Pro series, not much has changed internally. Having spent some time with it, let's delve into it.

Starting with the design, the Realme Narzo 60 5G exhibits a notable improvement in quality. It no longer feels like a budget device, resembling more of a mid-range smartphone. The Mars Orange variant I received showcases a sleek, chiselled appearance with a fun orange hue, vegan leather back and shiny stainless steel side.

Upon holding it, it's challenging to identify this device as a budget offering until you power on the display. At that point, you'll notice a rather thick chin at the bottom, which somewhat detracts from its otherwise modern aesthetic.

Fortunately, the phone features a 6.43-inch SuperAMOLED full-HD+ display with a hole-punch design, avoiding the unsightly waterdrop-style notch. While the display has shrunk slightly from last year's model, it maintains the same resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. Realme claims that the new "diamond pixel arrangement" enhances the pixel density, resulting in sharper content.

The massive yet flattened circular camera bump on the Realme Narzo 60 5G houses two cameras, but only one is accessible to users. The primary camera boasts a 64-megapixel resolution, offering an upgrade over the previous model's 48-megapixel shooter. The second camera appears to be a monochrome sensor that aids in capturing depth data for portrait mode. Additionally, the selfie camera has been improved to a 16-megapixel shooter compared to last year's 8-megapixel camera.
