realme C25 Review - Latest reliable budget phone

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. It's been a while since I updated my blog but here we are. We have the new realme C25. This is their latest addition to their "bang-for-a-buck" C-series smartphones.

Now, how is the realme C25 better than its predecessors?  Let's all find out.

When we open the box, you will get the following:

  • realme C25
  • USB Type C Cable
  • 9V2A Adapter
  • SIM Card Needle
  • Phone Case
  • Screen Protect Film
  • Quick Start Guide
  • Important Product Information (including the Warranty Card)

Let's remove the plastic and check the design. I'm digging the color and style of the realme C25. It looks elegant and stylish. Fit for millenials like me. LOL

The realme C25 will be available in two exciting colors: Water Grey and Water Blue. The one we have is the Water Grey color.  and I will say it again, I am loving the color. They said that the back cover was processed using an industry-leading engraving machine and it undergone major polishing to create that special reflective light effect.

And to add, this is the first smartphone to obtain TUV Rheinland High Reliability Certification. So you're confident that this phone is tough and reliable.

It has textured lines compared to the other realme smartphones but it is smoother, still comfortable to hold, and not slippery. It's not a fingerprint magnet but you can still see some smudges even with a little touch.

At the back you can see the branding, fingerprint scanner, and a triple camera setup. On the right we have the volume buttons and power and lock button. On the left it only has the sim slot. It can house 2 sims and 1 microSD at the same time. Below we have the speakers, USB type c port, microphone, and audio port.

Let's talk about the display. This has a 6.5-inch screen, allowing users to enjoy a near-full-screen viewing experience. It has a dew drop notch and a thicker chin at the bottom. The max video quality is only 1080p

  • 6.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD Display 
  • 720 x 1600 Pixels
  • 270 ppi
  • 20:9 Aspect Ratio
  • Dewdrop Notch

It runs on Android 11 and realme ui 2.0 out of the box and you can personalize the icons and themes.

The realme C25 features a MediaTek Helio G70 processor, which is the best in its segment. It is ideal for users and gamers because of its ability to handle medium to heavy apps. 

When I tried some social media apps, the photos and videos load fast. Let's try playing Call Of Duty. Here we go again, I actually don't know how to play this but for the sake of this review, I'll do my best.

So far, I did not notice any hiccups or frame drops. It was smooth and the phone is not overheating.

The realme C25 is equipped with a 6,000mAh battery so you can enjoy the features of the phone nonstop whenever you want. It can charge up to 18W and they said that it can last up to 47 days on standby mode.

Now let's talk about its camera. It has a triple camera set up at the back with a 48MP Super clear main camera ad f1.8 aperture, a 2MP Macro Lens, and 2MP depth sensor. It can shoot videos up to 1080p. The realme C25 has an 8MP selfie camera that supports AI beautification, HDR mode, and portrait mode.

Here are some samples.
