Initial Setup

Like most smartphones nowadays, the realme 11 4G comes with its share of what some would call bloatware. It’s a collection of third-party and duplicate apps that you may or may not use. Brands claim it helps lower the price of the phones. However, it does slow down the initial setup.

It’s not a major issue as most of us are probably used to this by now. You can just uninstall or disable the apps you don’t need, but it is still annoying nonetheless, especially for those who prefer a simpler and cleaner setup process.

The realme 11 4G runs on realme UI 4.0 on top of Android 13. We recommend taking the time to properly set up the phone to make the most out of your device.

First Impressions

The realme 11 4G is a stunner. The phone has a gradient design with an S-shaped streak of light. It has a flat display with curved edges and sides, with a large circular camera island inspired by luxury watches.
