Display – Performance – Camera – Battery – Price and purchase options
Relame continues to complete its catalog of mobiles belonging to the entry range co of the economic Realme C21. Despite its low price, the smartphone is designed to offer an experience of another level with its triple camera equipped with AI tools, a 6.5 ″ HD + Fullscreen screen, and a large 5000 mAh battery.
These specs make the phone stand out from the competition, but they are not alone. Let’s see what else the phone offers in this data sheet.
Realme mobile features
The key with which the phone is sold is that the smartphone is the most resistant in its price range, as it has obtained the TÜV Rheinland High Reliability Certification for phones that makes them enjoy greater durability. To achieve this seal of quality, the smartphone has undergone a process of 23 tests, including ten scenarios of daily use, such as drops, wear and tear.
East Realme C21 It has a 6.5 ″ Fullscreen HD + screen and a ratio of up to 89.5%, with a light and comfortable design in hand for a high quality viewing experience. Its 166 x 720 px resolution ends up generating a total density of 270 dpi, while enhancing a cinematic experience with its 20: 9 aspect ratio.
Like all modern mobiles, it has 16 million colors and its touch technology is capacitive.
We repeat the processor of the previous generation because inside the phone there is a MediaTek Helio G35, Running at 2 GHz, the phone provides decent performance, but not the best.
The big improvements are in the RAM and the storage because we have options to buy the smartphone with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and an internal memory of 32 or 64 GB, with the possibility of using an SD card (up to 256 GB) to increase the storage and to be able to save more photos, videos and contents.
The realme C21 has a 13 MP main camera, with up to 4x zoom and PDAF autofocus, so photos come out sharp in dark and low-light environments, outperforming the competition in brightness, detail and color. It also has the Chroma Boost function that, through the mapping algorithm at the pixel level, restores brightness and color, providing a better dynamic range, screen contrast and more vivid colors. The second camera is a 2 MP macro lens and f / 2.4 aperture designed to capture all the details of scenes photographed just a few cm away. A third camera of the same resolution is added to capture photos with greater blur.
The 5 MP selfie camera supports AI beauty mode, HDR mode, portrait mode, and filter, which will help users take trend-setting photos.
At the video level, nothing out of the ordinary in a smartphone whose price is around 100 euros: recording clips in 1080p at 30 fps with either of the two cameras, rear or front.
Like many others cheap mobiles Launched on the market in the first months of 2021, the realme phone has a 5000 mAh battery capable of remaining on standby for up to 47 days, although at the user level it will not offer a range of more than 48 hours.
According to the manufacturer, with the Super Energy Saving Mode, having only 5% battery life, you can use WhatsApp for up to 1.41 hours, YouTube for 1.36 hours or Spotify for 4.78 hours.
The mobile does not have fast charging but it does have a reverse cable charging system thanks to which you will never run out of battery in your other devices.
If we look at all the profiles of the phone we discover a somewhat old microUSB port, a 3.55 mm headphone jack and a fingerprint reader on the back cover, although we can also unlock the phone with our face.
Regarding wireless connections, we find compatibility with 4G networks with a download speed of 300 Mbps (LTE Cat.7) and 150 Mbps (LTE Cat.13) in upload; as well as Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS and FM Radio. Regarding Wi-Fi we have compatibility with 802.11b (2.4GHz), 802.11g (2.4GHz) and 802.11n (2.4GHz).
NFC is only available on the 4GB + 64GB memory model.
Be careful, only one model has NFC
The smartphone goes on sale with 3 + 32 GB and 4 + GB but RAM and storage is not the only thing that distinguishes the two versions of the phone. The one with the most memory is the only one that has an NFC connection, something to keep in mind when we buy the Realme C21.
Realme C21 price in Spain
The smartphone can be purchased in Spain with a geometric design that is available in 2 colors (Cross Blue and Cross Black) with 3 GB + 32 GB for 109 euros and with 4 GB + 64 GB per 139 euros (model with NFC).
