Spectacular features and an affordable price tag made the Realme C1 a great phone. Recently launched in the Philippines, this device easily became a favorite among Filipinos, especially those who want a great quality phone without making their wallets cry.
Aside from its cool design and awesome display and performance, the Realme C1 has another feature that makes it stand out among entry-level smartphones out there. It comes packed with a massive 4,230 mAh battery! And we’ve tested out its battery endurance, so you know what to expect with your Realme C1’s.
Based on our test, the Realme C1 could easily last almost 2 days with normal usage. This includes the usual stuff you do on your phones, like web surfing, phone calls and messaging, and casual gaming. If you like to play heavier games or use more intensive apps, the phone battery would able to keep with you for a lesser time.
During the video playback test, the battery went down 1% at approximately every 13 minutes with the brightness at a normal level. At this rate, the Realme C1 lasted around 21 hours and 40 minutes of non-stop video playback. Just a few minutes more and that would be enough for a Harry Potter and the first Fantastic Beasts movie marathon!
The smartphone shredded 1% of battery every 5 minutes when the video was looped at maximum brightness. We got around 8 hours and 20 minutes of fun videos, which is still impressive.
Our Realme C1 came with a 5V 1A battery charger. The big 4,230 mAh battery also needed a long time to recharge, and it took more than 4 hours to get the device from 0% to a 100%. Some users are perfectly fine with charging for a long time, but some users who are not made for waiting. For them, we recommend getting a 5V 2A battery charger so you can get back to enjoying your smartphone sooner.
The Realme C1’s battery is one of its most prized features and we can guarantee that it is indeed a beast. If you’re looking for a smartphone that can keep up with your hectic lifestyle with a single charge, then you and the Realme C1 is a match.
The device’s other specs include a 6.2” IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It also has a 1520 x 720 pixel resolution, and a 19:9 ratio. The C1 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and Color OS 5.2 UI. The C1 even has a Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, and a GPU of Adreno 506. Lastly, its decent camera system also delivers natural looking photos. Not bad for an entry-level phone right?
