5.Superfast Face Unlock

A mid-range smartphone without a fingerprint scanner is not something anyone would expect to get, but that’s the reality, the Realme 1 does have a very good design, but it doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor, rather Oppo has added the face unlock feature which is now getting more common.

          In practical, the face unlock is super fast and unlocks the device in under less than 0.1 seconds which is pretty impressive for a mid-range smartphone, but it’s not that secured.
