Since you now are aware of the price, let us share the pros and cons of the device we found out during the course of Realme C2 full review. And let’s start the things with its display. The handset comes with a 6.1-inch IPS display with HD+ resolution. Realme C2 display also has a tiny notch on the top like most of the smartphones of 2019. On the top, there is Gorilla Glass 3 protection. So the display is less prone to cracks and scratches.

As for the performance, there is MediaTek Helio P22 chipset coupled with 2/3GB of RAM. On the storage front, there are 16GB and 32GB memory options. In case of insufficiency, you can expand the storage up to 256GB and Realme has included a dedicated SD card slot for it. Since the Xiaomi Redmi 7A is also available at a similar price, their performance is often compared with each other. But when did the Realme C2 vs Redmi 7A comparison, the performance was more or less the same. And the AnTuTu score is here to prove the point.
Realme C2 AnTuTu Benchmark Score: 78,211
Xiaomi Redmi 7A AnTuTu Benchmark Score: 79,774

During the course of our Realme C2 review, we did an intensive gaming review as well. And in that test, the phone did decently well. Most of the low-end games ran without any hiccups. But it wasn’t the same while playing high-end games. My Realme C2 PUBG experience was just okay at best. There were frame drops on multiple occasions. And there were stutters during the Realme C2 Asphalt 9 gameplay. Since the Realme C2 is a budget device, it was understandable. If you are looking a more capable phone for budget gaming, Realme 3 may suffice your needs.

Continuing with the Realme C2 specs, let’s talk about the cameras now. Unlike most of the budget phones out there, the C2 comes with a dual-camera setup on the back. The camera duo embraces a 13MP main camera and 2MP depth sensor. On the front, you get a 5MP selfie snapper. Apart from taking selfies, the front camera also comes into action while unlocking the device via Face Unlock feature. With these camera modules on the board, the device captures some decent images. And it can be easily known from the samples we captured during the Realme C2 camera review.

Realme C2 Face Unlock feature is one of the biometric means to unlock the device. Apart from that, there is also a fingerprint scanner, which is lacking in the Redmi 7A. The Realme C2 fingerprint scanner is really fast and accurate. So unlocking the device was really hassle-free using this tool.

As for the battery, Realme C2 features a massive 4230mAh unit. And as you’d expect from a smartphone with bigger batteries, the phone provides a prolonged endurance. With a fully charged, Realme C2 battery life extends to around two days on the normal use. We also did Realme C2 charging test on which the device took around two and half hours to get the battery fully charged.
