realme 11 Pro Series 5G Photography
Level up your shots with a 200MP OIS SuperZoom Camera, Street Mode mode and more
In today’s digital world where everyone can turn into an instant photographer with a mobile phone, the goal for many is to stand out with the best shots. Bring your content to the next level by elevating your mobile photography skills with the realme 11 Pro Series 5G.
Coming with a premium leather back design to serve as an absolute fashion-forward mastercraft, the realme 11 Pro Series 5G lets you see #TheWorldUpClose, enables you to see more, go further and explore more with outstanding camera features, and then some.
Here, we break down the essential features of the realme 11 Pro+ 5G and realme 11 Pro 5G that cater to your every mobile photography need.
Rear cameras that put you ahead
Superiority in smartphone photography often boils down to the features of the rear cameras. The realme 11 Pro+ 5G downright impresses with a stunning 200MP OIS SuperZoom Camera. This means you can enjoy high-resolution shots, while avoiding unnecessary shakes and motion when taking photos for clearer, sharper captures.
It also features a 4x In-Sensor Zoom (in the Standard Photo Mode), which can be toggled to allow “lossless zoom” for photos taken through the 200MP Sensor. Zoom capabilities are likewise taken further, which can be best sampled through taking photos of the moon with AI turned on and taken with a mind-blowing x10 Zoom that extends even further up to x20 Zoom!.
On the other hand, the realme 11 Pro 5G presents a 100MP OIS ProLight Camera, where photos are enhanced through algorithms that significantly reduce the amount of time needed for night photography shots and rapid shots, allow photos to retain a significant amount of clarity even after being zoomed in up to four times, and helps enhance colors in photos taken by making them punchier and true-to-life. Its 2x In-Sensor Zoom is also utilized for the 2x Portrait Mode for a more closed-in shot, enhanced with specialized Portrait Algorithms.
Have something unwanted enter the frame at the last second? Both the realme 11 Pro+ 5G and realme 11 Pro 5G offer an eraser feature that, when used carefully, can remove elements from the frame, leaving you only with the perfect shot you wanted.
Take it to the streets with Street Mode
Formerly exclusive to the realme GT Series, Street Mode has since been made a staple feature in realme smartphones, and is also now available to the realme 11 Pro Series 5G. What makes Street Mode in demand is its game-changing features that give users the feeling of capturing shots with a DSLR camera as a street photographer.
Easy toggle options allow users to switch focal lengths when switching between Auto to Manual, as if changing lenses on a DSLR. There’s also an Auto Zoom mode, where a double tap commands the camera to instantly focus and center on the subject for an easy shot. Other highlights of Street Mode include Peak & Zoom, allowing for easier zoom and focus adjustments, and instantly taking a shot with just one-handed use.
Go on Hi-Res Mode
Available only to the realme 11 Pro+ 5G, Hi-Res mode enables users to toggle between 200MP and 50MP depending on preference. The feature also presents stunning multiple POVs on One Take, where once the image is processed, the user can review the photo taken and then see several perspectives recommended by the phone based on that one single shot. How’s that for a premium feature?
Other Camera Modes
While a lot has already been mentioned, there’s even more to the realme 11 Pro Series 5G in terms of camera features. There’s the Dual-View Video that uses both the front and rear cameras to shoot a single video, where the orientation can also be customized according to pr
Always out with a big group? Leave no one out of the frame with Group Portrait, a feature that captures more detail of the faces of up to at least 10 people. This removes the tendency for others to be blurred in the background of shots from other smartphone cameras.
Then, for the most passionate of mobile photographers, the Long Exposure feature presents four dedicated filters. This allows users to play with lights in their surroundings or write/draw in the shot using flashlights and others. There’s no need to manually adjust in Pro Mode since the filters are already pre-made for convenience.
Storage and Design
With ultra-packed camera features that will have anyone going crazy on the shutter, it’s only right for the realme 11 Pro 5G to be big on storage.
The realme 11 Pro+ 5G presents 12GB+512GB of space, while the realme 11 Pro 5G offers 8GB+256GB. Both models present a strong storage expandability of 24GB Total RAM with up to 12GB Dynamic RAM Expansion.
The realme 11 Pro+ 5G is priced at P24,999 SRP and comes in the colors Sunrise Beige and Oasis Green. Meanwhile, the realme 11 Pro 5G which goes for P19,999 SRP, is available in the same colors, with the additional option of Astral Black.
realme Watch 3 Review | All Around Fitness Smartwatch and More #realmeWatch3
realme recently launch the realme Watch 3 which is the successor of the realme Watch 2 released last year. The first thing I noticed is that the display size of the realme Watch 3 is a bit bigger than the Watch 2 which is a a 1.8″ Super Large & Bright Display that utilizes a TFT-LCD panel with frames per second set to 30FPS. Most of the specs and features are similar but has significant difference to name a few. I was fortunate to have a review unit to show you guys all the features of the new realme Watch 3.
The watch 3 looks very premium and solid and it doesn’t look and feel cheap. You can compare it with the higher end smartwatches. It also features a 7-Day Battery Life which is already long for a standard smartwatch. It also has IP68 Dust & Water Resistance where you can use your realme Watch 3 even if you are washing the dishes or hands, you don’t have to worry getting the watch soaking wet as it is tight sealed as shown in the pictures. The realme Watch 3 comes in two color options: Black and Grey which fit for both men and women.
One of the biggest improvement of the realme Watch 3 is the sports mode which feature more than 110+ activities which is more than the previous model. It is your ultimate partner in terms of health and fitness monitoring where it has an All-Day Comprehensive Health Monitoring. Perfect for fitness enthusiast and who is planning to have a better lifestyle by integrating the realme Watch 3 health features for that fitness goal.
Fitness/Sports mode includes Outdoor run, Cricket, Indoor Run, Strength Training, Football, Basketball, Badminton, Yoga, Elliptical, Indoor Cycle, Outdoor Cycle, Mountaineering, Trail Running and many more.
Connectivity and Social Network
What I like about the realme Watch 3 is the seamless connectivity across my social media accounts. First the SMS, where it can immediately notify the watch when there is an incoming SMS message and mobile call without much hassle and vibrates the smart watch even if your mobile is far from you, it is connected through Bluetooth, and in fact it has a Clear Bluetooth Calling feature, where it can handle consistent connection regardless of movement which is perfect of those who have an active lifestyle.
You can also connect your Social Media Network notifications and messaging like Facebook, Twitter, Viber and many more. This makes me more updated with my online activities even without looking at my phone, even if I am on the go or away from my phone, I can check the messages directly from the realme Watch 3.
You can monitor the weather using the realme Watch 3 which is amazing, in just a few swipe, I can see the weather conditions today & tomorrow.
Heart Beat / Sleep Tracking
I think this is very important to keep track of your health in real time even during medical checkups & emergencies can determine your conditions through your heartbeat which can save lives. This essential for those who have heart conditions or monitor your heartbeat during workouts & exercise.
The realme Watch 3 is an improvement of it’s predecessor, it delivers the same quality features that a health enthusiast would love and enjoy. With a bigger screen size, more training and exercise modes, it will make your smartwatch experience more interactive and fulfilling. I recommend the realme Watch 3 to existing or 1st time smartwatch users to try it out. realme Watch 3 is priced at PHP3,499
