The realme/Fast and Furious 9 movie promotion offers the realme 7 5G – currently $499 – and a pair of Buds Q earphones valued at $79 for just $399. Fantastic value for the $578 package.

The promotion is available from 7-30 June 2021 at JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, Bing Lee, Amazon realme store, eBay realme store, The Good Guys, realme e-store, and Catch.com.au.

Fast & Furious 9 (wiki here or F9 to aficionados) is the latest in one of the world’s largest media franchises. It screens in Australian cinemas from 17th June 2021. Directed by Justin Lin, it stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron. The epic soundtrack is out on Atlantic/Universal.

Initially scheduled for release in 2020, but we will forget that year. One film critic praised Justin Lin’s direction, writing that “This is a movie that sling-shots so far past self-parody that it loops all the way back to something real.”

Now back to the realme 7 5G

GadgetGuy reviewed this in February 2021, and it heralded the beginning of sub$500 5G. There have been a few more entrants since then. But what stil impresses us (apart from the well-earned 9.7/10 rating, which is more than Rotten Tomatoes will give the movie) is that it has everything and more that you could want for the price – 5000mAh, fast charge, and a smooth 120Hz display.


The Buds Q at $79 are at the value end of the market but punch above their weight. It has support for both SBC and AC BT 5.0 codecs; games latency of 119ms; 4.5 hours play (at 50% volume – 20 hours with the case); and IPX4 sweat resistance makes these a good bud for general music and workout. And they come in Quite Yellow, Quite White, Quite Black.
