Here we are one more day to analyze a mobile within the reach of all budgets, with a series of characteristics that seek to offer a correct model. We have already analyzed many products of the firm realmeas Realme GT NEO 3 150W, although this clearly belonged to another range. That is the versatility of the developers of the mythical yellow box, who this time bring us a much more affordable device like this one. Realm C55. But let us not be fooled by appearances, because you may be surprised with some of the extras it has. In this analysis we are going to go little by little looking at all the sections to clarify all the doubts that may arise. Let’s go for it!
Correct design and screen
If there is something that this firm usually achieves with its models, it is to give them a different touch in terms of design that differentiates them from the competition. The Realme C55 was not going to be less and despite not being the most attractive mobile on the market, it has just enough to enter through the eyes and attract the attention of those who explore the low range. What’s so special? Well, what has caught our attention the most is its plastic casing with reflections that is very beautiful. Also, if it is already luminous in black, you will already imagine what it is like in the other yellow colorway that they have released.
It’s not slippery, but a bit wide and therefore difficult for smaller hands to hold. We are talking about measures of 165.6 x 75.9 x 7.98 millimeters and a light weight of 189 grams, an ultra-thin design that we really like. Everything is set to the usual method, with one exception that we would certainly change. Below the connectors, a speaker and a microphone, on the left the slot for cards, above nothing and on the right the volume and unlocking. What we would change would be this unlocking, which in turn acts as a fingerprint reader that, although accurate, is very annoying in that area and we miss it on the screen. A screen that houses the front camera and that is quite wide, without excessive edges and making good use of the space left by the design.
What technology does the screen include?
A LCD of 6.72 inches with resolution FHD+. A technology that we already know is cheap and of poorer general quality than OLED or Amoled, but it looks really good, has good viewing angles and feels very resistant. In addition, it has a very good addition that not all the low ranges have, although little by little they are adding it. It is the improvement in the refresh rate, which in this model increases up to 90hz, more than enough for the use that is going to be given. We would improve the response to direct light a bit so as not to have to depend on shadows when viewing content, but you can see just enough and it is not a problem that the rest do not have.
A single main camera, but of good quality
You may have seen the specifications and you have noticed that it has two sensors in the rear camera. Also, you can see from the design itself that it has two lenses on the back. So,Why do we say that it has a single main camera? We always talk to you about sets of cameras, but in this case there is a main sensor that stands out, and a second option that is solely and exclusively for support. A 64 MP main camera with f/1.79 aperture and a sensor size of almost half an inch, which captures lighting and color very well. The second is one of 2 MPin charge of capturing and working on the depth of field and thus helping to make images with the objective that is in charge of this mobile.
In the lead we don’t have much either, because with 8 MP power is really short and the images we can capture are very basic. You can take good quality selfies in well-lit places, but we do not choose to take artistic photos or that capture detail. It is not a camera, neither this one nor the front one, that seeks this goal. The Realme C55 wants to capture good general images and that’s it, it can do that with the sensor it comes with. But you will not find elaborate photography modes, the menu is very simple and adds just enough, with time lapse, slow motion, pro mode and little else. It also needs improvements in portrait modes, but it is something that we could come to expect. Here we leave you a small gallery with some images that we have captured.
Limited but compliant performance
The operation of the Reame C55 is good, but you have to look at it with the correct perspective. If we fall into comparisons, it surely seems like a bad option, although the reality is that it has a performance that is up to what a cheap mobile user requests. Processor Helium G88 and a memory 6GB RAM which does represent an advance compared to the latest generation of low-end ranges from Realme. You are not going to find a mobile to play at high performance, overheating can appear if we push the device to the limit, but in normal use you will not have any kind of problem.
Of internal memory has 128GB, at least in the option that has come to us, although there is the option of 256 and even adding a 1 TB Micro SD. How the operating system works Android 13along with the branding layer in its latest update, the realm UI 4.0. It allows you to change many things, the menus are simple and intuitive, as well as good fluidity. In general, optimal performance, without much fanfare.
Connectivity and battery of the Realme C55
Some simple connections but that continue with the idea of this mobile to be a compliant option. By cable we find the USB Type-C and the jackpot of 3.5mm, the most common is launches of these prices and that offer what is necessary. Wirelessly, things change a bit, since certain absences and update problems are noticeable and Realme has chosen to cut back a bit. WIFI AC, Bluetooth 5.2, nfc and connection LTEthe option for those mobile phones that continue to work with 4G and they have not made the leap to the new generation of bands and frequencies. His only problem? That the connectivity is not up to date, because the options are offered and for standard use it is more than enough.
The battery is also very decent, once again combining good power and fast charging. The 5000mAh ensure the day of use comfortably, and the charger 33W Supervooc They recharge the battery in just over an hour. It is not the fastest charge we have seen, but it is quite good in a device like the Reame C55, cheap and accessible for most pockets.
