As for competition, one of the toughest contenders for Realme 11 5G to beat is the Lava Agni 2 5G (Review). The phone from Lava has a better display that’s an AMOLED panel and is curved, along with a superior chipset, and a close-to-stock Android operating system which may be liked by many. It also has a phone from Tecno to beat, and that’s the Tecno Camon 20 Pro, which again offers a better AMOLED Display and a much better chipset. However, you get less storage and slower charging as a trade-off for the same price tag as top-end model of Realme 11 5G, which is Rs 19,999.
