Realme 3 Pro | GadgetMatch

Realme started out to cater to the budget segment, but the now-separate OPPO sub-brand is growing fast. After releasing the Realme 3 Pro in India last month, the Chinese company is now making it widely available in other Asian markets, specifically the Philippines.

The Realme 3 Pro is positioned to battle the uber-popular Redmi Note 7 of Xiaomi by offering better specs for a little extra cash. Basically, the Pro model is based on the regular Realme 3 we’ve reviewed before, but with significant improvements to make it more attractive.

For starters, the Pro is still made of Gorilla Glass 5 in the front and shiny plastic on the back. Its display is slightly larger at 6.3 inches with a higher resolution of Full HD+. It still has a teardrop notch which has a 25-megapixel selfie snapper.

The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 processor paired with up to 6GB of memory and up to 128GB of storage. It runs Android 9 Pie out of the box with ColorOS 6 on top.

In the camera department, the Realme 3 Pro has a main 16-megapixel f/1.7 camera accompanied by a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

Battery-wise, it has a respectable 4045mAh cell that supports the proprietary VOOC 3.0 fast charging tech through its micro-USB port. It promises to go from zero to 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.

In the Philippines, the Reame 3 Pro will be available in two variants: a 4GB+64GB model priced at PhP 12,990 and a 6GB+128GB version for PhP 14,990. The phone will be sold through Argomall, Realme kiosks, and partner stores nationwide.

Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition unveiled

There are Moschino cases, too!



This is not a drill.

With Honor’s announcement of their Honor 20 series came a fashion collaboration that definitely excites me. The Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition was just announced and I just love how extra it is.

The phone itself has the worlds “This is not a Moschino phone” stamped on the back in true Moschino fashion. Of course, there’s a matching wallpaper that says, what else: “This is not a Moschino wallpaper.”

There are also cases that follow that design lead…

My favorite, a case that features similar bold text for that Moschino flair and straps that you can even hook to your bag.

Though all designs are fresh, the partnership isn’t surprising. Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is known for collaboration, not to mention, Honor also teamed up with the Italian fashion brand for the Honor View 20’s design.

No details on pricing and availability for this particular version of the Honor 20 Pro is out yet but one thing’s for sure: I’m loving the fashion x tech partnership and I’m definitely hoping for more!

Apart from the main Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro models, there’s another Honor 20 phone: the Honor 20 Lite. As the successor to the Honor 10 Lite, the new budget-friendly Honor 20 variant is meant to be in the lower tier.

The Honor 20 Lite has a 6.21-inch Dewdrop FullView display with a Dynamic prism-shaped gradient color body. It mimics the look of its more premium siblings, but for less cost.

As a midrange-specced Honor phone, it’s powered by the widely used (within the Honor and Huawei family) Kirin 710 processor paired with 4GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage. Unsurprisingly, it runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box.

Camera-wise, it has three rear AI cameras: a main 24-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In front, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera inside the display’s notch.

The phone’s 3400mAh battery is respectable, but it doesn’t support SuperCharge and it charges through a micro-USB port. For comparison, the P30 Lite from Huawei already has a reversible USB-C. Additionally, the phone’s fingerprint reader is located on its back.

The Lite model is already available in stores in Europe for EUR 299 or around US$ 335 when converted.

Honor 20 Pro ties with OnePlus 7 Pro on DxOMark

Even beats the Huawei Mate 20 Pro



Honor has never been one to make noise on DxOMark’s camera performance charts, but the company finally felt that it’s time to set a high bar for all flagship smartphones to follow.

The Honor 20 Pro, which is the brand’s latest and best smartphone to date, earned a score tof 111 on DxOMark’s mobile ranking. That’s right below the Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, plus it ties with the recently launched OnePlus 7 Pro.

It’s a major statement to say the least, and puts the Honor 20 Pro on the map as one of the best pocket shooters in the market.

When you check out its specs sheet, you wouldn’t be too surprised by the high score. The Honor 20 Pro has a 48-megapixel main camera with a bright f/1.4 aperture, 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, 8-megapixel telephoto unit, and a 2-megapixel macro option. Indeed, that’s as much variety as a smartphone can get.

In addition, the chipset that processes the P30 Pro’s images — the Kirin 980 — does the same work for the Honor 20 Pro’s photos. The broken-down scores of 117 for photos and 97 for videos simply prove that this Honor flagship is every bit as capable as its parent company’s best.

With a starting price of EUR 599, this is quite a deal for the camera performance you get out of it. You can learn more about the Honor 20 Pro in our unboxing and hands-on video:
