Realme C11 overview
For the past couple of years, the Realme C-series has been one of the most bangs for your buck devices out there for budget centric consumers. We’ve seen the real me C1, C2 C3, and now we’re kicking off the second half of 2020 with the new Realme C11. Which is positioned lower than the Realme C3. Further adding another layer to the hierarchy of Realme. Well, how does it stack up? Let’s find out – see also Realme 5 Pro
Unboxing their signature bright yellow box. We are first greeted by the accessory packet, which holds your user manual, SIM ejector tool, and normally a free jelly case, which doesn’t seem to be the case here. Next, we have the unit itself, the 10-watt charging brick with Realme, signature accents, and a matching micro USB cable for charging. Right from the get-go, the Realme C11 can almost be mistaken for a more premium phone. We have a large 6.5-inch display, a thickness of 9.1 millimeters, and comes in at a weight of 196 grams, which feels very comfortable to hold in the hand. The unit we have now comes in pepper, gray, but there’s a more colorful green version as well.
Looking at the front, the Realme C11 has a mini-drop notch design, which is beginning to look a little bit dated since all other entry-level phones are starting to adopt the Punchhole camera layout. It also has a very noticeable bezel by the chin, but with this screen size, we don’t think you’ll be having much of a problem. But the lack of a notification light might bother some people. Another thing that might bother you is the lack of gorilla glass protection. But you do get a pre-installed screen protector, which is a good thing, to say the least.
Now heading to the back. We have a polycarbonate rear panel that features a textured finish, which helps maintain the grip of your phone, I suppose, to avoid unnecessary fingerprints. This particular colorway, along with its upgraded rear camera module, vaguely does remind of the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. But what does capture more attention is that smooth vertical strip with the Realme logo, that lines along with that beautiful looking rear shooter. We think is a nice touch.
On the left sincere dual nano-SIM card tray, along with a dedicated micro SD card slot for expandable storage. On the right, we have your power button and volume rocker. The thought is nice and clean. What at the bottom, we have air either dated micro USB port for charging the primary mic. Loudspeaker and thankfully a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.
Checking out the display you get a 6.5 inch IPS panel running at a resolution of 1560 by 720, which equates to 270 PPI. Colors, nice and vibrant even without the OSIE vision effect found in the more expensive Realme and Oppo phones. Viewing angles are decent and show good contrast, especially when watching multimedia content. The Realme C11 it’s very usable in harsh lighting situations like when you’re outdoors. And for a phone with a 720 P display output is still quite sharp from a normal standpoint, but he will start to see some pixelation when you get close to the screen, frankly, it’s still quite a reasonable looking display, especially if the screen resolution is not so important to you.
For cameras, Realme C11 has a total of three. We get a dual rear setup consisting of a 13–megapixel primary sensor and a 2–megapixel depth sensor. In front. We get a 5–megapixel sensor for selfies. Unfortunately, there is no option to change the quality of photos in the settings. But video recording does let you change the resolution from either 720 P to 1080p. Shots taken with the rear camera aren’t bad, especially with HDR turned on.
You get decent looking images with a nice pop of color. Portrait mode. Using the main shooter also works well, but could use a little bit more work when it comes to subject background separation. With all beauty enhancements turned off, selfies are average. Switching to the front cameras, portrait mode works much better though with more sharpness. Better contrast. And of course, that nice bokeh effect that everybody loves. After taking a few shots, it looks like the Realme C11 performance best from the close the midrange distances with an ample amount of lighting.
Noise becomes quite apparent when you’re either trying to shoot something from afar or when in dark environments, we do have nightscape and promote a swell. So night shots are still achievable to some extent. The Realme C11 has a native image output of 4160 by 3120 pixels with no setting to change this in the default camera app. You have a choice of shooting at either 720 or 1080p at 30 FPS. When it comes to the video recording quality of which is enough for casual use since this doesn’t have any form of stabilization. You’re going to have to keep your hands steady. If you want those smooth shots.
Running, the software department Realme UI based on Android 10. Realme has come into their own with their skin called colors OS. While it still generally feels like the skin is based on its previous OS, Real me UI is a delight to use thanks to its fluidity security, and useful features like Realme share. Pre-installed applications include the standard Google suite, as well as Realme’s native applications, including real mean link and game space. It’s nice to see a clean homepage from factory default with not a lot of bloatware upon initial startup.
Storage and performance
When it comes to storage out of 32 gigabytes total of 12.8 gigabytes is taken up by system files, leaving you with only 19.2 gigabytes of usable space. But again, you can always insert in micro SD card up to 256 gigabytes of expandable storage. Since the Realme C11 doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. The only layer of security we have is face unlock, which surprisingly works well even in dark environments.
At the core of the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset with the Power VR 8320 GPU, along with 2 gigabytes of RAM and 32 gigabytes of EMMC, 5.1 storage. Performance is sufficient for most basic tasks like social media and other light apps. When it comes to multitasking, the low amount of RAM takes at stolen, several things are happening in the background at once, but if you’re not at the juggle through different apps, it should work just fine.
For power, it comes with a 5,000 mAh battery which supports 10watt charging. This huge capacity combined with the new resolution screen and power-efficient chipset provides an easy 2-day battery life. Charging however is slow given the limited 10-watt power delivery. Standard video loop tests see Realme C11 give a total of 25 hours and 31 minutes of playback making this device a good companion for continuous multimedia consumption. Charging the device up from 0% takes two hours and 58 minutes to reach a full battery.
