As you can see, both iQOO 3 and Realme X50 Pro have similar features, but in terms of battery, iQOO 3 outclasses X50 Pro. Realme X50 Pro has a better camera including a 64-megapixel primary camera and a quad rear camera set up. X50 Pro sports a dual front camera set up which makes it better than iQOO in terms of camera.

Given that there is no 5G network in India and at times even 4G network fails to provide good connectivity, there is a big question on the need for 5G smartphones in the country. It will take another year or more to provide 5G connectivity in India.
