Realme is on a mission to disrupt Xiaomi's dominance in the budget segment. The recent Realme 2 Pro (Review) smartphone offered very good all-round performance and good value at Rs. 17,990, and now with the Realme C1, the company hopes to raise the bar in the entry-level segment too. The Realme C1 competes with the Xiaomi Redmi 6A (Review), the Honor 7S (Review), and the recently announced Asus ZenFone Lite L1, at its introductory price of Rs. 5,999.

Realme C1 Summary

The Realme C1 features a large 6.2-inch HD+ display, which produces good brightness and colours. The plastic body feels sturdy in your hand but the laminated back is prone to scratches. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, which is a decently powerful chip but the 2GB of RAM makes general usage feel a bit sluggish. The in-built 16GB of memory also runs out quickly if you have too many apps installed. The rear 13-megapixel sensor captures average images and there's another 5-megapixel sensor at the back too for portrait mode. There's a large 4230mAh battery which takes a long time to charge with the bundled adapter.

  • Best Design in Low Price
    kontrol pendek (Dec 14, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    In this range of price, you get big display, NOTCH which is the trend now, and double back camera. And still you can add microSD card with dual SIM.

    Overall the phone is very good Ÿ‘ . But less of entertainment the os version does not have themes and brightness level is a bit irritating... Camera quality is very good Ÿ‘ŒŸ˜ realme must provide an update very soon. Camera provides a soft image in low light... Battery timing is perfect.. i charged my phone day before yesterday and still remains 7 hours

  • Real me C1 review
    Dwijit Dasari (Jan 13, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I've been using this phone for month.Overall for my usage it's a good phone Battery Review The battery is awesome. You will get 4230 mAh battery for heavy gamers also it lasts for 6 to 7 hrs .For normal usage it lasts for 2 days. Because the battery is large we get a fast charger but they are providing oppo charger of 5v2ampere battery nearly the battery takes 3 hrs to charge. Gaming I've give 3.5/5 for gaming for heavy. Gaming it's not good In you will get a soc450 chipset for pubg gaming it will handle in low graphics with some minor lags but it's good you can play pubg in this. Camera Camera is good in back you will get a dual camera in day conditions both front and back cameras are good but at night conditions it makes me disappointed You will get a face unlock instead of finger print scanner overall face unlock is fast and quick at lighting at night it might take some time it's accuracy was good Screen is very large and it's has a notch at the middle its very slim and less weight overall weight distribution is good Overall this phone is ok for 7500 RS budget I'll recommend it.
