Realme C3 hands-on review

GSMArena team, 07 Feb 2020.


Realme is a brand that has built a name for offering affordable handsets with decent specs, and the latest phone release definitely lives up to the expectations. The Realme C3 was introduced today with Helio G70 chipset and Realme UI, effectively making it the first Realme smartphone coming with the in-house interface out of the box.

The C lineup has always been about affordability and looks more than anything else. The Realme C3 comes in two neat colors and a price tag of just INR6,999, which translates to $100 or €90. There is 3 GB RAM, dual cameras on the back and a big 6.5" screen on the front for that price and it feels like a phone that can withstand an average daily use.
