First Realme 5, 5s & 5i Realme UI (Android 10) incremental update brings new features, bug fixes, July patch, & more

The Realme 5, 5s, and 5i are one of the latest Realme phones to bag the Android 10 update after a long wait. The company appears to be in competition against Xiaomi to see which of the two can release the most number of smartphones as it has released a bunch of smartphones within a short span.

Take for example the Realme 5 which launched in August 2019 following which, the Realme 5s was released in November of the same year and a few months later in January of 2020, the company launched the Realme 5i.

All three phones pack in similar specifications with a few changes here and there to make them appear a bit different. As a matter of fact, the trio even launched with Android 9 Pie but the Realme 5s and Realme 5 got the Android 10 update first.
