Should you buy it?

Realme 5i has good specifications on paper it has the same processor that powered the Realme 5 and has four cameras at the back. For its price, however, the Realme 5i is not convincing enough, especially, because there are no frills that make it anything more than just an unwanted variant for the Realme 5. If you are a Realme fan, you, of course, can go for the Realme 5i because it still has everything right for a budget phone. But you can get more if you expand your search and go for other smartphones that are available in the market.
