Realme C3 Review, The Budget King of Indian Market

By far the best phone under 8k budget in terms of performance, the realme c3 took the whole world or atleast Indian market by storm. I was lucky to get it around 3 weeks before lockdown started. I was amazed by the feature packed Android 10, impressive, much improved and refined Realme UI which is the successor of ColorOS which many people used to dislike though it’s still based on same principles as it’s also called ColorOS 7 (Realme UI 1.0 technically).

The phone packs a massive 5000mah which provide decent backup 1 and half day with moderate usage. Being the first device to launch with powerful Helio G70 is also quite impressive as it’s a really good midrange level chip at entry level price. Custom Android 10 OS in it is just phenomenal with advanced gestures such as 3 swipe down screenshot, long SS, partial SS etc.
Initially camera seem to had major picture quality issues due to having blurry image with zoomed shots or far / out of focus objects and even normal shots weren’t that impressive which all got fixed the 3 software updates i received just under 1 month.

Sounds is quite loud and audio quality is okay too. No stuttering or any performance related issue in any task i throw at it such as gaming, rendering and even copying / moving files is very fast as it has emmc 5.1 which supports upto 400MB/s bi-directional speed which is faster than SATA 2 on my pc (though no anywhere near fast as UFS 2.1, let alone the latest 3.0 version of it).

Screen is very bright and picture is also very crisp which is expected on a IPS LCD display, screen is quite large too being 6.2″ it feels great to have such big screen size phone so now my older 5″ screen phone looks tiny compared to it and i have got well used to it now, at some point my one of my friend was doubtful if i will be able to handle it but then i felt companies making these phones must have something logical in their mind to go in this direction of bigger screen so it shouldn’t be an issue.
I have four major complaints about it though, no fast charging, usb type-c or fingerprint scanner and with such large screen i also expected a Full HD screen but HD+ is still acceptable considering the price of the phone.

So overall, it’s the budget king in market right now and if you’re solely looking for something to game one with smooth experience, high fps and high graphics then this is the one for you, ofcourse if you can deal with or ignore the minor issues it has which are pretty negligible, to be honest.
I own the 4GB RAM+64GB ROM variant and i also have my 4 year old Sandisk 32GB Class 10 UHS-I plugged in as well. It offers a dedicated sim card tray so you can use or have two nano-sims and 1 MicroSD Card upto 256GB expandable storage. I have the blue color variant, it has dual camera on the back with flash and single front facing selfie camera.

The UI feels quite slick, silky smooth and easy to use. Overall for this budget i would rate this phone 8.5/10. though providing such powerful device at this extremely low budget is not an easy task. But i would have those three missing features i mentioned earlier which do exist in Redmi 8 which also has the same price for both 3GB/4GB RAM variants respectively though it has significantly slower and older processor but people who are not diehard or serious gamers would want to have more convenience which it does provide satisfyingly.
