The rear camera can shoot full HD videos at 1080p @60fps which is great considering the price.

I hope this Oppo Realme 1 review was helpful and satisfied all your queries regarding the device. In my opinion, the base variant which costs 8,990 INR is the best value for money amongst the three of them. The 13,990 INR version has an amazing 128GB of storage which is not available in any other Smartphone in that price range.

The Oppo Realme 1 price is just unbeatable but has some drawbacks too and the missing fingerprint scanner is the main amongst all those. The back is a fingerprint magnet and needs proper cleaning every time after every usage. The single-camera is not capable of bokeh shots and that is a letdown too.

Overall the Smartphone is great regarding the price and is a very performance oriented device. The device is indeed the new budget killer.
