Priced from Rs 11999 in India. Does the Realme C35 deliver on looks as well as performance Lets find out in this video review.? The realme C35 is available in two variants. Theres, one with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage priced at Rs. 11999 and the second with 128GB of storage at Rs. 12999.. Yes, this budget smartphone sure does look different. Compared to previous C series smartphones from Realme. It does feel like a breath of fresh air.. The phone is made out of polycarbonate, but its chiselled look gives it a modern aesthetic.. It has a matte frame with flat sides and edges.. The rear panel is also flat, but has a glossy finish., The camera module on the back of the phone protrudes quite a bit, but surprisingly, the C35 does not wobble when placed on a flat surface.. However, a stylish phone at this price point does come with a few downsides. The polycarbonate bodys glossy finish, looks unique in the subtle Glowing, Green colour, but its a big fingerprint magnet., Its also not the most comfortable to hold, mainly because of the relatively sharp edges.. I also often found it hard to locate the power button, which also doubles up as the fingerprint reader, mainly because its recessed into the frame and has little travel. The Realme C35s 6.6 inch. Full HD LCD panel has a standard 60Hz refresh rate and features a dewdrop style notch. Its not all that intrusive when viewing content. But it does look a bit dated.

. The bezel around the display is reasonably slim at the top and the sides, but is quite thick at the bottom.. The display produces saturated colours at the default screen settings, but changing from Vivid to Gentle delivered more accurate results.. The C35 runs the Realme UI R Edition.. As the name implies its not the typical Realme UI found on its other devices. Realme UI R Edition is based on Android 11.. It is a lightweight version of the regular Realme UI that skips resource intensive features and customisation options for smoother performance.. While this sounds like a good idea, Realme still preinstalls several third party apps.. Now these can be uninstalled, but it somewhat defeats the purpose of running a leaner operating system.. The overall usage experience was not the best.. The Realme C35 performed more like an entry level smartphone than something at its price level.. I faced random instances of lag and stutter while scrolling through lists and launching apps.. It always felt as though the Realme C35s hardware was struggling to keep up with its software. Gaming. On the Realme, C35 was not a great experience., The Unisoc T616 SoC, which is usually found on entry level, smartphones struggled to play any game. Smoothly. Casual titles such as Subway Surfers and Temple Run 2 stuttered a little while games such as Call of Duty Mobile lagged too much even at the lowest graphics settings.. The Realme C35 has three rear facing cameras: a 50 megapixel primary, a 2 megapixel macro and a 2 megapixel black and white camera.

. An 8 megapixel front facing camera is in charge of selfies. Realme. Ui R Edition means that theres no quick access menu in the cameras viewfinder, which would have let you change settings on the fly. Image quality when capturing photos in daylight was satisfactory at best.. The dynamic range of the primary camera is decent for the most part, but details were surprisingly weak, even when shooting photos in daylight.. The HDR system was a bit too aggressive at times, so the sky looked abnormally blue and almost Photoshopped in some shots. Macros looked oversharpened and overprocessed.. The Portrait mode is only available on the rear facing camera and it only worked on people and not on objects. For some reason., The camera usually struggled to lock focus in dimly, lit conditions and images. Looked quite soft.. Switching to Night mode did result in slightly better contrast, but photos turned out soft and blurry, which made things seem worse. Overall. Video quality was strictly average in daylight, and footage also appeared quite shaky due to the lack of any stabilisation. In low light. Videos looked quite noisy.. The Realme C35s 5000mAh battery lasted 10 hours and 56 minutes in our HD video loop test, which is well below average for a budget device. When it came to regular use, the C35 lasted a little over a day which again is below average for a budget device. Charging the phone using the bundled 18W charger took two hours and seven minutes which is on par with the competition.

. The lower end of the budget, smartphone segment offers plenty of choices these days, such as Micromaxs In 2B and the feature packed Moto G31.. Some of these are priced lower and have more powerful. Hardware. Realme also has quite a selection of models to choose, from many of which are priced pretty close to one another.. The new Realme Narzo 50 is available starting from Rs. 12999 and offers a MediaTek SoC 120Hz display higher resolution. Selfie camera and 33W charging. Poor camera performance and sub par battery life are the biggest weaknesses of the Realme C35. Even considering its price., Its design is really the only thing that makes it stand, out. So thats it for my review of the Realme C35.. Let me know what you think about it in the comments below.
