2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful diamond-cut pattern on the back - it's a head turner, and quite impressive for this price bracket - you will find an identical back design on the more expensive Realme 1 and Realme 2 smartphones - the only difference here is instead of the glossy plastic, the Realme C2 is offering a matte finish
  • Offers a very comfortable grip because of the textured back
  • The matte finish and textured back also don’t attract fingerprints or smudges, like many other modern glossy phones
  • The plastic body makes it feel light
  • There is no fingerprint reader, but the face unlock system is pretty good

Display

  • Modern, tall, dew-drop notch display
  • Quite good for binge-watching videos
  • Display resolution is on the low side
  • Average legibility under sunlight

Software

  • Ships with latest version of Android, Android Pie - one of the few affordable phones to do that
  • ColorOS 6 adds a ton of nifty features, and an app drawer (something that had been requested by users from a long time)
  • There are a bunch of preloaded apps, including DailyHunt, UC Browser, NewsPoint, ShareChat, Amazon India, Wynk Music, Webnovel, Opera browser etc - though thankfully you can uninstall all of these apps to save some storage space

Performance

  • Decent day-to-day performance with a Helio P22 chipset (similar to Snapdragon 625) - basic use, and casual games run just fine - though of course, this is not a phone for power users

Camera

  • Pretty decent camera performance, especially for daytime use - the images have decent enough details and punchy colors
  • There is also Chroma Boost mode if you want more saturated and well-contrasted images.
  • The shutter speed is fast enough and auto-focus is snappy
  • Overall, this is one of the best camera setups in the ultra-budget category
  • Indoor (low-light) shots are average though, as you would expect from this price bracket - you can use Chrome Boost for slightly better results but, the mode takes time to deliver the final output

Battery

  • Excellent battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - with light to moderate use, you will get nearly two days of battery

Verdict

  • Overall, the Realme C2 is another 'very good bang for your buck' device from Realme, that can compete with similar phones from the current leader, Xiaomi - you get a beautiful design, a big display with a tiny notch, decent cameras, and an excellent 4000mAh battery - this is a very good pick for basic smartphone users, who don't need the best performance from their smartphones, but want a solid device otherwise (if you do need faster performance, you will want to look at higher price brackets)
