The Realme C3 is another promising entry-level handset. Its gaming-oriented processor and other specs sheet could be winners in this segment.
New entry-level king, Realme C3 is set to be released in the Philippines next week. Realme has just released the Realme 5i last month, but that’s not stopping the company from dropping another handset from its popular C series. The Realme C3 is the latest entry-level device which is packed with features you wouldn’t want to miss.
For starters, the Realme C series is a line of the popular entry level smartphones which have been dominating local sales in the past year. The Realme C3 is the third iteration to the series which started with Realme C1. Okay, enough of the introduction, let’s start by checking out what’s in the box.
Realme C3 UnboxingGetting the box's lid, you’ll see a small packet which houses the manual or quick start guide and some documentations. In the same small box, you’ll see the SIM ejector tool underneath.
Even when wrapped in plastic, you can't deny that the smartphone's Blazing Red colorway is very striking. Of course, the box comes with the usual wall adapter and microUSB cable.
Compared to the Realme C2, the C3 scores great improvements in several areas. For one, the handset boasts a triple camera setup which is comprised of 12MP main, 2MP portrait and 2MP macro cameras. Under the hood, the phone breathes with MediaTek Helio G70 processor, Realme claims that C3 is the first smartphone to rock this gaming-class chipset in the Philippines.
Just like the company’s previous releases, the Realme C3 packs a juicy 5000 mAh battery which, from the looks of it, could deliver an all-day battery life. The phone is also generous enough to include a 6.52-inch HD+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
I am very impressed with Realme C3's design. It's a very well-built device. Our Blazing Red review unit could definitey catch some serious attention in the wild. The matte-like backing is similar to that of the Realme 5i only that it comes with a Triple rear camera set-up. It's not a fingerprint magnet which is always a good thing.

The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is found in the upper middle half of the handset while the Realme branding is on the lower left.
On the left, you have the dual SIM tray with a dedicated slot for microSD card. The bottom part houses the micro USB port, the speaker grill and the standard 3.5-mm audio jack; while the right side is the power button’s domain.
Realme C3 Sample photos
We have tested the Realme C3’s camera. In good lighting environment, photos are great. Color saturation is also on point, most of the stills come with great detail. Macros are also good. Shots tend to be on the softer side, and I also noticed that there’s no night mode. Here’s some of the photos I took.
So far, I am impressed with the handset. I just hope it would have a killer price tag. It’s good thing to note that the Realme 5i is priced at Php 6,990. I guess, the Realme C3 will beat that price. Realme C3 will be official on March 5. Stay tuned for more updates.
