Realme C3 Full Review
During the ongoing Coronavirus situation, a Smartphone can help you kill boredom through participating in virtual games full of thrills and actions. However, it may not be feasible for PUBG game lovers to buy an expensive gaming Smartphone during the economic depression throughout the country. So thanks to Realme for launching their C series Smartphone Realmi C3 presenting great features under an affordable price range. Debuting in the Smartphone market of Bangladesh on May 17, Realme C3 has already become one of the most sought-after budget gaming Smartphones in 2020.
Realme C3 Review: Features and Technical Specifications
Unlike the usual gradient pattern mostly available in contemporary Smartphones, Realme C3 comes with a textured back panel. This design is termed ‘Sunrise Design’ by the company, as its rear ray patterns and reflections imitate the sunrise. The matte-finished back not only offers a strong grip but also saves the phone from getting fingerprints or smudges.
This smartphone will win your heart with its trendy looking tear-drop notch front design. The thin side-bezels make this phone more impressive. By virtue of 20:9 aspect ratios, Realme C3 appears with a tall and slender shape. You can comfortably hold and use this gear. Face recognition feature can quickly unlock this Smartphone regardless of lighting conditions.
Weighing 195g this Smartphone won’t feel too light due to its 5000mAh heavy battery. But the weight is quite manageable for one-hand use. Though built with plastic, Realme C3 is blessed with sturdy construction.
You will find the power and volume buttons on the right and left sides, respectively. The top edge has no buttons; whereas the bottom edge holds a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB charging port, microphone, and loudspeaker. The loudspeaker works well but it may sound a little distorted at the highest volume.
Like any other standard Smartphone, Realme C3 bears a tray for dual Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. The phone is currently available in two mind-blowing color options: Frozen Blue and Blazing Red. Choose the one which suits your personality most.
Though its display may not offer a Pro experience, this Smartphone is really good for indulging your quarantine days with a bulk of web series on your phone. The sunlight legibility feature makes the display work nice in outdoor ambiance, all you need to do is adjust the level of brightness.
However, Realme C3 doesn’t come with a Widevine L1 certification, which would hinder you from playing the HD videos from Netflix. It is certainly a disappointment for many people!
Realme C3 is available in several variants: 32GB/2GB RAM, 32GB/3GB RAM, 64GB/4GB RAM, and 64GB/3GB RAM. In addition to this, you can enhance the external memory up to 256 GB by installing a MicroSD card. It would be better if you become selective while install apps and software instead of overloading the memory with unwanted software. If you can keep some space free, this device can offer a quicker start-up, as well as faster navigation performance.
Realme C3 outshines many flagship Smartphones in the race of gaming performance. As a gamer, you might know that the processor is the main feature of any gaming smartphone. In simple words, the better chipset the faster the gaming speed.
Realme C3’s MediaTek Helio G70 with Cortex A75 architecture can offer better performance than pricier smartphones like Galaxy A51 or Oppo F15. You can smoothly play PUBG Mobile, Asphalt 9, Call of Duty, and similar games on this smartphone.
However, at high preset, the action moments may freeze for a second but you won’t experience any noticeable lag. Realme C3 offers excellent performance for the price unless you fill-up the phone with bulks of apps and software.
Its 5,000mAh battery can keep the phone alive for up to two days on a single charge session if used moderately. The provided 10-watt charger may take about 3 hours to get fully charged. However, it might dishearten those, who are looking for a fast charger. The provided Micro-USB port works fine, but a Type-C port would have been great.
The Realme C3 is programmed with Realme UI based on Android 10 which would deliver superior streamlined performance than its ancestors. What is more? This latest Realme Smartphone is packed with a bunch of handy features such as Dark mode, Focus mode, Game Space, Personal Information Protection, etc.
Moderate Camera Features
Realme C3 is provided with a dual-camera set-up on the rear-side including a 12MP primary shooter backed up with a 2MP depth sensor. In ample daylight, this smartphone locks focus quickly, meters light without much effort, and takes a good quality picture.
Realme C3 lacks a Macro mode so you won’t be able to focus on objects from a close distance. Its decent portrait mode supported by edge detection feature can take average-quality photos. However, the quality may not be so impressive.
Realme C3 comes with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. The picture quality may turn to noisy and hazy in low light conditions. Lack of accuracy in color tone, detailing, and sharpness can be a deal-breaker for selfie lovers.
Realme C3 Price in Bangladesh
The Realme C3 (32 /3 GB) is available for BDT 10,990 in Bangladesh.
Realme C3 smartphone is a gift for gamers. The inclusion of the MediaTek Helio G70 processor makes Realme C3 a great device for gaming. The camera features may disappoint you. But don’t forget the fact that budget smartphones tend to compromise a bit for image quality. It won’t be overwhelming to say that Realme C3 offers great features considering its price tag.
