A Narzo that's puzzlingly priced and slotted

The Narzo 50A Prime is no doubt a gaming device for those who are on a very strict budget. But the pricing of the smartphone for its 4GB RAM/64GB ROM variant comes close to the Narzo 50. And the latter provides a better display, chipset and faster charger out of the box.

The smartphone also continues to get more discounts through online retailers making a better buy over the Realme Narzo 50A Prime.
