- Page 9: Wrapping up the realme 5 Pro review
Holding the realme 5 Pro, it’s pretty much similar with the realme 3 Pro that we reviewed here. Similar shape, similar geometry, and even similar feel on the hand. What’s different here is the back design.
From what I can say, the realme 5 Pro is inspired by the diamonds and gems as it has a facet cut design. realme kept it classy by having fairly large polygonal cuts with just a few angles in total – and that looks absolutely stunning.
We have our realme 5 Pro in Crystal Green color option. It’s not really that green – more like emerald color with a bit of blue mixed in it. It looks absolutely fantastic to the eyes.
Though, I have to warn you that the realme 5 Pro is using a very scratchable, soft plastic material to protect the facet cuts behind. We put our unit of the realme 5 Pro in the bag (like any other review phones) and it got scratched up terribly. Build quality is definitely not up to par here.
Which is where the included TPU case comes in. It’s definitely a necessity to use a case for the realme 5 Pro because of its fragility. Don’t be an idiot like me and think it’ll be alright – because it’s not. Using the included TPU case also means sacrificing the beauty of the back design as realme included a smoked case instead. It’s a semitransparent black case, so to speak.
