Offers and Discounts

The first sale of the phone is starting from 12 noon on 31 May 2024, which will continue till 4 June 2024. In this sale, customers will be able to buy Realme Narzo N65 5G smartphone at a discount of Rs 1000. The phone will be sold from Realme and Amazon website.

Design & display

That similarity extends to the Realme P series devices as well, such as the Realme P1 5G(review), and even in the form of the flat display on the Realme Narzo N65 5G. Realme Narzo N65 5G comes in only two color options: Amber Gold and Deep Green.

While not much is shared between the design and feather strokes at the back of the Realme P1 5G and the Narzo N65 5G (in Amber Gold), it features a circular camera module. The slick smartphone has a thickness of 7.89 mm and weighs 190 g. The straight edges of the smartphone dig into the palms, which makes the phone a bit uncomfortable to hold.

The volume and power buttons are located on the right-hand side of the frame and fall very comfortably under the fingers. The power button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor for quick unlock. Having IP54 water and dust resistance in the Realme Narzo N65 5G is an added advantage.

The display quality on a Realme Narzo N65 5G is essential. It gets a vast 6.67-inch IPS panel with an HD+ resolution of 720 by 1604 pixels, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of 625 nits in High Brightness Mode.

That way, this is one of those very few devices within that particular price segment where one could find an offer going at 120 Hz, which is quite a big thing in the definition of good visuals. It is pretty legible under sunlight and indoors, with a high brightness level, although it does struggle a little under extremely bright conditions. The device is also waterproof against rainwater touching so the user can operate the device with wet fingers.


The camera setup includes a 50MP AI primary lens and an 8MP ultra-wide. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera. The primary lens clicks good-looking daylight pictures with slightly boosted colors. Sometimes, daylight shots with HDR mode on turn out to be slightly overexposed.

In the pictures below, you can see that the image of the Realme Narzo N65 has slightly amped-up colors with lush green foliage and the colors of the sky and water. The color output from the S24, although more natural, is not quite as vivid or sharp as that from the Narzo N65. Narzo N65 looks much better in dynamic range but tends to overexpose the image.

In low light, images are very grainy, and the details are somewhat silenced. HDR mode helps a bit, but not much, because the details and the edge detection will still be inferior. Selfies behave the same, more or less: they come off as quite attractive under daylight and rather average under low light.

Software and Its Performance

Realme has now launched its second model powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 6300 SoC—the Narzo N65 5G. It has 6GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage, with expansion up to 2TB using a MicroSD card. This smartphone performs all the daily work efficiently without visible lag or jitter.

The price is very nice for this gaming performance: the Narzo N65 is comfortable running graphically demanding games, averaging around 55FPS at medium graphical settings, in games such as COD Mobile and Real Racing 3. The device can play BGMI beefy games in HD graphics and also has a high refresh rate, which holds at an average of 28FPS—hence allowing a more comfortable experience in games. 

This will be enabled out of the box by the N65 5G that brings Realme UI 5.0 based on Android 14.0 and assisted by a few pre-installed applications you can do without. With the 120Hz refresh rate, you now also have a wholly optimized UI with many intelligent features, along with File Dock, Floating Windows, Link to Windows, and many more. That amounts to 2 years of OS upgrades and three years of security updates—pretty much par for a phone at this price.

Battery and Charging 

The power is drawn from the Realme Narzo N65 5G using a standard 5,000mAh cell that supports 15W fast charging. Testing with PCMark’s battery benchmark was successful in 17 hours and 16 minutes. The battering performance transcends from those numbers into real-life use, where the device comfortably delivers a day’s use on a single charge for a moderate user.
