Design & Display Review
Realme has equipped the C3 with a bigger display than its predecessor. It measures 6.5 inches diagonally and has a 20:9 aspect ratio. This aspect ratio makes the smartphone tall and slim, so it’s relatively comfortable to hold and use. The bezels are thin on the sides but the bottom chin is thicker. Like most other Realme smartphones in the market, this one also has a dewdrop notch which houses the selfie camera. Right above it is the earpiece, which is finished in black and blends in with the display. The Realme C3 packs a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel and there is a water drop notch at the top. The screen offers an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels and it has a density of 276 PPI. Another amazing thing is that the display is also an LCD with HD+ resolution, but at first glance, the content on the screen was decently visible under strong sunlight. The bun also helps the design on the back – Realme called it Sunrise Design for a reason. The phone looks lovely and appears to have sunbeams shining out of the camera module.
Camera results on Realme phones have always been better than its competitors and that is the case with the Realme C3 as well. Still the Realme C3 sports a dual-camera setup at the back consisting of a 12-megapixel primary shooter with an f/1.8 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, it has a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. The camera application is unchanged compared to previous Realme phones, and has Portrait, Time-lapse, Slo-mo, Expert, and Pano modes in addition to the photo and video modes. It also has quick toggles for HDR. Both front and back cameras can shoot 1080p videos. All the processing power of the Realme C3 comes from the MediaTek Helio G70 chipset, which is fairly decent in terms of performance at it’s price.
