Chinese smartphone maker Realme had an eventful year in 2019. The company launched multiple smartphones every quarter forcing the competition to pick up the pace. Realme started 2020 with a budget smartphone called the Realme 5i, and hot on its tail, the company is bringing in yet another very affordable smartphone called the Realme C3. The C series is Realme's entry-level lineup, and offers good hardware at affordable prices. In this highly competitive price segment, can the Realme C3 carve out a niche of its own? We put the new Realme C3 to the test to find out.

Realme C3 Summary

Realme C3 is a budget smartphone from Realme and it sports a sunrise design. The company offers the phone in two colours Frozen Blue and Blazing Red. It has a big display that measures 6.5-inches and has a 20:9 aspect ratio. The Realme C3 sports a 5,000mAh battery which is a highlight for this smartphone. This is also the reason why it is a tad heavy at 195g.

The Realme C3 is powered by a Mediatek Helio G70 SoC and comes in two variants. The base variant has 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage while the other variant has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. It is a dual SIM device with support for 4G as well as VoLTE on both SIM slots. It runs Realme UI 1.0 on top of Android 10.

It sports a dual-camera setup at the back with a 12-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It clicks decent photos but low-light could do with some improvements.

  • Budget king of 2020 just go for it
    Akshay Kumar (Jun 27, 2020) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I have been using Realme C3 since three months and there is no issue.The Helio G70 will never disappoint you in terms of performance.The battery backup is awesome.It lasts for one and a half days with extensive use.You won't believe watching a three hour HD movie consumes only 5 percent of battery.I got it for 7999 then and i am more than just satisfied. If you are looking for its bad side,then i am letting you know here. 1.The camera is not superb.If you are interested in photography then don't consider this. 2.The speaker is not that much loud but it will not disappoint you while watching movies. 3.Charging speed is not that fast.It takes just over 2 hours to charge completely . Verdict:If you want a lasting battery life with seamless performance,then you should go for it.
