No LED Notification Light
Like other Realme smartphones, the company hasn’t provided any notification light in the Realme 5 Pro.

This is also a con of Realme 5 Pro.
Another disadvantage of Realme 5 Pro is its UI or OS. This phone is also running on Color OS 6. The Color OS 6 has many improvements over Color OS 5 but still, users don’t like this UI.

Color OS 6 is annoying for many users because of which they don’t like Realme devices.
These all are disadvantages of Realme 5 Pro which you should consider before buying this smartphone.
