Realme recently launched a new budget phone Realme C3 in India. It is the successor of last year’s Realme C2 and comes with some upgrades over that. Realme C3 is the first smartphone to be powered by MediaTek’s latest Helio G70 processor and is also the first budget phone to run Android 10 and also comes with the latest realme UI. Its other important features are a 6.52-inch HD+ notch display, 12-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual rear cameras, and a 5000mAh battery.
The Realme C3 price in India starts at Rs. 6,999 for the 3GB+32GB version and it will go on sale from February 14. So, if you are planning to purchase this new budget phone from Realme, first check out here some reasons to buy and not to buy.
3 Reasons to Buy
The Realme C3 comes with a 6.52-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) mini-drop notch display that has an 89.8% screen-to-body ratio. The display is quite big in this price segment. Moreover, it is also protected by Gorilla Glass 3+.
Performance: Helio G70 & Android 10
The next good thing about Realme C3 is its performance. The phone is powered by the latest MediaTek Helio G70 12nm processor that is paired with up to 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and up to 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage. The storage is also expandable up to 256GB with microSD. Being a budget phone, these specs make it a performance powerhouse in this segment.
Furthermore, the smartphone runs on the latest realme UI which is based on Android 10. This also makes it the first budget phone with the latest software.
Another plus point for Realme C3 is that the phone packs a huge 5000mAh battery. The battery should easily last more than a day after a full charge. The phone with 10W charging support only.
2 Reasons Not to Buy
There is one reason that one can find Realme C3 not worth the price. The phone still comes with a micro USB port. There is a phone from Realme’s rival Xiaomi in the same price segment that comes with a USB Type C port. So, the company should have given USB Type C as it has a big battery and needs faster-charging capabilities.
No Fingerprint Scanner
Onndrwback this phone has is that it doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. If we look at previous Realme C series phones, they also lacked one. But the company should now give this feature on this phone.
As you can see, this budget phone comes with some really cool features like a big display, the latest powerful processor, the latest software, dual cameras, and a big battery. The reasons I mentioned for not buying this phone are not that big ones- micro USB is not that an issue and without a fingerprint scanner, you still get many methods to secure your phone. So overall, it is a good budget phone that is currently available at this price.
