Additionally, the bottom edge gets the speaker grille, USB Type-C port and headphone jack.
Standard Display Quality:
Speaking about the display quality on Realme C35, it feels quite Ok. The colour reproduction is good whenever viewed in indoor conditions. In outdoor conditions, the display lags in terms of colour reproduction. We tried playing some Full-HD videos in indoor situation, the colour reproduction was good. However, when we moved outdoors, the colour feels dull. Furthermore, it was difficult for us to view the video playback properly.
Decent Camera Quality:
The 50MP AI-powered camera on the Realme C Series smartphone performs good. Considering its price point, we can’t expect much from the smartphone in terms of camera performance. In our experience, the daylight image quality from this camera is good. However, in low-light situation, the camera struggles a bit. The low-light images also feel bit noisy. Similar is the result with the selfie camera. Additionally, the daylight selfies are quite good.
As for the overall performance, the Realme C35 smartphone comes with Unisoc T616 SoC. During the launch event, Realme claims that this is a killer chipset considering the price point. However, our experience is quite different from what Realme claims. In terms of gaming, you can also easily play games like PubG Lite, Free fire and others. Heavy graphics gaming is not recommended for this Realme C Series smartphone.
As for the battery, the Realme C35 comes with 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charging solution. In general usage, this battery can offer a battery life for one full day. However, with heavy usage, you need to carry the charging brick with you. Also Read – Xiaomi 12 series global launch soon, Xiaomi 12 Ultra to launch with 50MP camera
Realme C35: Final Verdict
In our opinion, the Realme C35 smartphone is likely to launch under Rs 10000 in India. Considering its price, we can’t expect much from this smartphone. However, based on our experience, we would suggest you to consider other options beside this smartphone. Furthermore, this smartphone will compete with the likes of Realme Narzo 30A, Micromax In 2b, Moto E7 Plus, Poco C3 and others.
