However, it has released a number of pretty good smartphones since becoming an independent brand and it brings that to the newly released Realme 5 series as well. The Realme 5 Pro naturally comes with the better specs while the Realme 5 follows suit with some decent features as well both with an identical build. The Realme 5 is bigger compared to the Pro model and also offers a bigger battery but that is just about it.
