- Realme C25 comes as the first C-series phone with Android 11 software.
- Realme C25 is one of the three phones that have arrived in India today.
- The biggest selling point of Realme C25 is its 6000mAh battery.
Realme C25 is the company's latest entry-level smartphone that brings a big 6000mAh battery as its unique selling point. It is not new for Realme to go all out in terms of specifications for a phone that fits the budget. Realme C25 is just another attempt and I think the phone has the potential. There are several reasons behind that but the most prominent would be the need of consumers. People who look for a phone around the price of Rs 10,000 often weigh in on things such as large batteries and solid build quality. The three new phones fit the bill.
Of the three new phones, the Realme C25 is the priciest one and rightly so. Its specifications list includes a 6000mAh battery with 18W fast charging, Android 11 software out of the box, and a 13-megapixel triple-camera setup. All of that is available for a starting price of Rs 9,999. I got some time to spend with the Realme C25 and here is my first impression about the brand-new entry-level phone.
Right off the bat, the design of the phone is quite plain and simple. And that is a good thing. It is a departure from Realme's gaudy themes for some mid-range phones that I have rarely liked. So yes, you have a textured finish in grey and blue colours on a polycarbonate body. The phone is sturdy and the grip is solid. But since the phone is hefty because of the huge 6000mAh battery, it will cause some discomfort over extended use. I am yet to figure that out.
The Realme C25 has a 6.5-inch HD+ display that I think should be big enough to watch movies and shows and play games. In my little time, the Realme C25 display got adequately bright, which is good for indoors, but I am yet to find out how the display fares under direct sunlight. For gaming, the display should be good enough in terms of size but everything else relies on the processor.
Powering the Realme C25 is a MediaTek Helio G70 processor. It is a capable budget range chipset, so I am expecting the phone will manage to run games such as Garena Free Fire in low-graphics settings. It will also be powerful enough to handle multitasking, largely because of the 4GB RAM. I will give a detailed experience in my review.
Camera-wise, the Realme C25 has a 13-megapixel camera among two others. I think the camera should be able to click good photos but do not expect too much. The photos clicked in daylight should be good, and I am keen to find out if that will be true.
Finally, the Realme C25 packs a big 6000mAh battery and the company claims it can last for 47 days on standby mode. My review will not talk about standby time, but I will tell you how long the phone will last on a single charge. And that is what probably matters the most to you.
For my initial impressions, I think the Realme C25 is a solid big-battery phone that is value for money for the price of Rs 9,999. I will certainly be more certain about this when I review the phone, so stay tuned.
