On the off chance that you preferred the Realme 2, you will love the Realme C1.

The Realme C1 conveys a dynamite battery life.

The back cameras on the Realme C1 are like the Realme 2.

Realme merits praise for making a great deal of commotion in simply a question of few time. The organization, which began as a sub-brand of Oppo, made its introduction in May, discharged a couple of telephones that have turned out to be hits on online business stages, and earned itself a spot among Xiaomi, Honor and Samsung in a matter of seconds. Realme’s prosperity is an uncommon thing to find in a market as profoundly aggressive and swarmed as the spending portion. Each Realme telephone so far has offered something remarkable that has made it stand apart from the section, and the most recent Realme C1 is the same.

The Realme C1 was reported with the greater part of indistinguishable specs from the Realme 2, yet at a much lower value purpose of Rs 6,999 which made it significantly all the more engaging. Be that as it may, the organization was as of late compelled to climb the cost by Rs 1,000 because of deteriorating rupee thus the Realme C1 now costs Rs 7,999. In a spending section, this climb can have a universe of an effect, so what we need to do presently is make sense of whether the C1 still bodes well at its new valuing. This is what I found in the wake of utilizing the gadget for barely seven days.


Realme’s entire way of thinking hovers around offering telephones for an adolescent driven group of spectators. For this to work, the organization feels configuration is similarly as significant as the specs. So the Realme 1, Realme 2 and the Realme 2 Pro have attempted to convey that. The Realme C1 is a passage level cell phone and you would feel that the organization would make some exchange offs with the plan, however it hasn’t. The C1 appears to be like the various Realme telephones in that it gets a shiny intelligent back board and an edge-to-edge show. It’s nearer to the Realme 2 since it gets a similar sort of wide score, while the missing unique finger impression sensor makes it appear to be like the Realme 1.

The back board is plastic, yet the shiny sheen to it makes it look great in the Deep Black variation that I got as my audit unit. There’s additionally an Ocean Blue choice that is somewhat more brilliant eye catching. The telephone figures out how to remain really smaller in spite of a tall showcase ready. It likewise has a strong form quality with firm and material catches around the casing. The SIM plate on the upper left side can hold two nano SIM cards (double 4G VoLTE help) and a microSD card.

Since the Realme C1 seems to be indistinguishable from the Realme 2, it additionally accompanies a similar structure issues. The presentation feels disassociated with the body as it doesn’t flawlessly bend around the sides. It feels like the glass has been inexpensively stuck on top and this is a typical sight to see on Realme and Oppo telephones. The polished plastic back board will see scratches and scrapes following a couple of days so it’s ideal to go for a dull shading choice or a defensive case.


The greatest thing going for the Realme C1 is its tall 6.2-inch HD+ (720×1520) show. It’s one of the greatest you will discover in the passage level portion. Because of the score and the jawline, you get a liberal measure of screen land with a 88.8 percent screen-to-body proportion according to Realme’s cases. This is a decent show board that is brilliant and bright inside. The hues on application symbols look profound and immersed. Splendor levels are great outside, yet it can endure under brutal daylight and review edges are truly normal.

The presentation will need sharpness while watching recordings, yet you won’t almost certainly recognize this during everyday use. The nature of the showcase is very like the Realme 2, and it is incredible to see Realme carry that to an even lower value point. Obviously, the 6.2-inch show is best used while watching recordings in full screen.

Execution and programming

At the point when the Realme 2 was reported with a Snapdragon 450 chipset, it felt like a noteworthy downsize over the Helio P60-controlled Realme 1. The Realme C1 gets a similar Snapdragon 450, yet it feels right considering the telephone’s entrance level cost. This is an octa-center processor that sets with 2GB of RAM, so it’s not going offer a spectacularly smooth encounter, particularly while performing various tasks in light of the fact that. The C1 is for the most part slack free while performing fundamental everyday undertakings like informing and calling. It will begin to falter when looking through web based life applications like Facebook or Twitter. It is anything but a smart gadget while opening and stacking applications, however the chipset is fit for running PUBG on the off chance that you were pondering.

That being stated, you might need to downplay your PUBG play time on the grounds that the gadget shows some pressure. The game will take a shot at low realistic setting of course so it won’t look sharp and it will run smooth enough for the initial 5-10 minutes. Be that as it may, you will see a few slacks in the event that you play for a drawn out period. Fortunately the battery level does not drop at a noteworthy rate even while messing around.

The Realme C1 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo’s ColorOS 5.1 on top. It’s a genuinely thick ColorOS skin that I’m not especially an aficionado of. The main motivation is on the grounds that the product is as yet not streamlined for the indent. This implies indent will in general interfere and eats into a portion of the substance which makes it harder to become accustomed to. The product likewise looks very dated by and large with huge application symbols that look unappealing. Moreover, the slide to evacuate warning is as yet absent and we trust it makes with ColorOS 5.2.

Oppo’s custom programming accompanies a couple of prominent highlights that incorporates Smart Assistant, split-screen performing various tasks, Game Mode and some new security layers including the capacity to make application installments and buys by means of face acknowledgment. I saw a couple applications like Zalo IM and Bao Moi which revealed to me that I got a Vietnamese unit for audit. These were deletable, nonetheless, with the goal that’s great to know. The product does not have a ton of bloatware however there are a great deal of highlights and customisations that may bargain the presentation of the Realme C1 following a couple of months.

Like the Realme 1, the C1 likewise misses a unique mark sensor. Be that as it may, you do get a smart face open element that functions admirably in great lighting conditions. In dimness, in any case, you should open the telephone with an example or stick. The single speaker grille on the base has normal volume levels, and it’s just on max setting that it truly gets boisterous, yet the lucidity is really poor.


The back cameras on the Realme C1 are like the Realme 2. You get a 13-megapixel essential sensor and a 2-megapixel optional sensor that enables you to take profundity of-field photographs. The front camera has been downsized from 8-megapixel t 5-megapixel. The iOS-like camera application will look well-known and it’s simple enough to work with. You likewise get modes like Time-Lapse, Stickers and Panorama and extra highlights, for example, face magnificence and HDR.

The Realme C1 catches great detail when there is adequate light around. In splendid outside conditions, photographs will look sharp and shading propagation is genuinely conventional. There’s additionally a decent measure of complexity and light so photographs will look brilliant enough. Shade speed is as quick as ever and self-adjust is smart too. In low light, photographs are loud, yet the sensor figures out how to hold some detail which is great to see. The camera additionally battles to concentrate regarding a matter in low light. Indoor shots were not too bad yet at the same time demonstrated some clamor.


Charging the Realme C1 made me feel like I was five years before. The telephone assumes control more than 4 hours to charge from zero to 100 percent utilizing the packaged 5W charger, which is simply agonizing. Utilizing a 10W charger should make things somewhat quicker, yet the Realme C1 does not bolster any type of quick charging so anticipate that a decent 3 should 4 hours of charge time. You’re presumably going to charge the telephone medium-term when you do.

Interestingly, you won’t go after the charger over and over again. The Realme C1 conveys a dynamite battery life that will effectively take you through two days. It gets a similar 4,230mAh battery limit as the Realme 2. Since the Realme C1 has less pixels to push and a chipset that does not request a great deal of intensity, you’ll get a quite strong screen on time of around 6 hours.

Would it be a good idea for you to purchase the Realme C1?

Regardless of the value climb, the Realme C1 is as yet an extraordinary spending choice and a strong Redmi 6A elective. On the off chance that you preferred the Realme 2, you will love the Realme C1. It gets an appealing structure that makes it stand apart from nonexclusive plastic cell phones in this portion. It gets a major, vivid showcase and is one of the least expensive scored telephones in the market. Maybe the good to beat all here is that the C1 conveys a breathtaking battery life that none of the Redmi telephones in this range can flaunt.

The main perspective that is probably going to baffle you about the Realme C1 is the mind boggling measure of time it takes to charge the gadget. In case you’re a patient soul, you may simply manage it superior to the vast majority. The restricted measure of RAM may likewise baffle you in case you’re looking to perform various tasks, yet as a general gadget the Realme C1 won’t offer you a ton of motivations to grumble is as yet an incredible purchase at its new evaluating.
