Let’s talk about the Realme XT first. Basically, the best and most important feature for the XT is its 64-megapixel quad-camera setup. They’re advertising the phone to have a “flagship-level” camera and rightly so! When zoomed in, the pictures will still look crisp and detailed.

On the other hand, the Realme 5 Pro has a 48-megapixel quad-camera set up that takes great night pictures thanks to its multi-frame engine and HDR. Along with this, one of its other main features is the 119° Wide angle lens which allows you to capture 151% more from your phone camera.
