Physical overview:

On the Right side, it has a power lock unlock button.

Toward the bottom, it has 3.5 mm jack, primary microphone, micro USB port and speaker grills. You might be wondering why they don’t go for Type C port instead of micro USB Port. That’s because these companies have to pay the patent owner/Licensing authority of Type C for using that technology in their device. That’s the reason these budget phone whose main motive is to reduce the cost of their device don’t opt for these technologies which will increase the cost.

On the left, it has volume rockers with separate volume up and down button. Above that, you get a dedicated micro SD sim slot. It’s good to see dedicated sim slot at this price range.

On the top, there is nothing, no slots, no buttons, no secondary microphone.

On the backside it has vibrant coloured, dazzle light technology designed, Polycarbonate back cover with matt finishing. This back cover provides good grip and gives no smudges. This phone has a dual camera setup which is aligned vertically at the top left corner.

On the front side of the mobile, it has big 6.52 inches HD+ IPS LCD display with waterdrop notch camera at the centre, toward the top side.

Realme C3 has 6.52 inches HD+ IPS LCD screen. This screen, as well as back, is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The aspect ratio of this smartphone is 20:9 whereas screen to body ratio is 89.8%.

    • 2 mp depth sensor

  • Front Selfie camera deatails:
    • 5mp with 2.4 aperture, portrait and beauty modes available.

The rear camera has good picture quality. You might find a slight issue with edge detection. With chroma boost available in this phone, it enhances the picture quality with vibrant colours. Also, this phone has got a 4X digital zoom. Talking about the front selfie camera, It produces impressive bokeh effect. Overall picture quality is ok.

Since this phone doesn’t have an OIS(Optical Image Stabilization) feature, you might get shaky footage while recording video.


Realme C3 has a 5000 mAh battery which can last for a long time. This phone comes with reverse charging feature, which means you can charge another smartphone or a power bank through this phone. This powerful battery provides good power backup but it makes this phone little bulky, that’s something you have to compromise for the battery backup.

Realme C3 is provided with a 10W charger. we cant expect fast charger at this range.

Software features and Performance:

Realme C3 is the first smartphone with Helio G70 processor. This processor is best for gaming and handles the high-end games pretty well without any lag. You might notice micro frame drops when you play at higher graphics setting. But I think barely anyone will complain about that when they are getting gaming smartphone at this price.

Realme C3 comes with new android 10 OS while running "out of the box UI"(User Interface). Realme named it as Realme UI. This UI increases the user experience significantly while reducing the RAM usage hence saving up to 40% of the battery.


  • Dedicated microSD card which is one of the essential features in today’s smartphones.
  • 5000 mAh battery.
  • Reverse charging facility.
  • G70 processor which handles games at ease.
  • Android 10 OS.
  • Great performance.


  • No fingerprint Scanner.
  • Preinstalled Bloatware.
  • No fast charging.
  • No Type C port

Concluding Words:

Realme C3

Often Realme provides transparent TPU case for the smartphone in the box itself, which was missing in this phone. Also, the fingerprint scanner was missing but that can be understood as the Realme wanted to keep this smartphone under the budget while giving other essential features. Being an entry level smartphone Realme concentrated on providing impressive features at a tight budget. G70 processor is beast in its work.

 It’s a complete value for money package. If your interest is in gaming and budget is tight Realme C3 is the best deal you can get. There is rarely anything you can complain at this price point. But if can manage to spend some more bucks, you can go for Realme 5 Or Redmi Note 8 which has better camera specification and other features.
