Performance & Gaming
Alright, the moment that a lot of us have been waiting for – the performance benchmark. The realme 5 Pro that we have here comes with this list of hardware:
- 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with 2340×1080 pixels in resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset
- Adreno 616 GPU
- 8GB RAM
- 128GB internal storage (expandable with microSD)
- 4,035mAh battery
- Fast charging with 20W VOOC charger
- Android 9.0 Pie with ColorOS 6
From what we can find out, the Snapdragon 712 chipset here is pretty much just an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 710, which gets about 100MHz faster on the dual high-performance cores.
Without further ado, let’s move on to the benchmarks.
If you are benchmarking for yourself, you might wonder why the scores of the realme 5 Pro is lower than the realme 3 Pro – and that’s because you must use high-performance mode to unlock the Snapdragon 712’s full potential. By default, it is in “normal mode”. You can downclock even further with “power-saving mode” if you want.
We realize that the scores aren’t that far apart from the realme 3 Pro that uses the Snapdragon 710 chipset. And that pretty much confirms that the Snapdragon 712 is an overclocked Snapdragon 710 chipset.
The gaming prowess on the Snapdragon 712 chip used in the realme 5 Pro is – as mentioned – an overclocked Snapdragon 710 chipset.
We played our usual games – Honkai Impact 3, Asphalt 9, and also PUBG Mobile. All 3 of them ran smoothly on the realme 3 Pro. Do take note that PUBG Mobile will run at HD graphical settings at “high” frame rates, or at lowest graphical settings with “ultra” frame rates as of now.
Still, a smooth experience overall.
