Realme is quite experimenting with its products, especially mobile phones. With customer satisfaction as its supreme priority, Realme has done a commendable job in incorporating good-quality features into a lower-price segment phone. 

From the Android 10 operating system to the OCTA Core processor, the C20 has every aspect required for giving a smooth user experience. The C20 phone has all the necessary features and still, the Realme C20 price is just Rs 7,499. Let’s elaborate on the distinctive features of this affordable phone in detail in the next section. 

Enchanting Features of Realme C20

Realme phones are so diverse that it’s not incorrect to say that there’s a Realme mobile for every segment, budget, and need. All the Realme C Series devices have a lot in common, even their design and looks are pretty similar, but the Realme C20 price is what makes it stand out from other phones in this series. 

If you compare this phone with other Realme products like Realme Narzo N55, the C20 gives competition to Narzo N55 in terms of camera and battery backup. Below I have extensively discussed some of the key features of this phone, you should definitely give them an attentive read if you are planning to buy this modest mobile. 

1. Performance

The C20 mobile of Realme has the same chipset as the Realme C21, which works pretty well for a phone of affordable range. The overall performance was good, however, there were frequent delays, but for an entry-level phone like the C20, it’s forgivable. Talking about gaming, being an entry-level phone C20 doesn’t support high-end games, but it can handle normal games like PUBG, Free Fire, Call of Duty, etc. 

C20 Key Specs

The only thing that disappointed me in this phone is RAM and internal storage. 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage are clearly insufficient, as the 2 GB RAM can bottleneck the phone while using multiple apps and resources. However, to deal with the problem of storage, Realme provides the facility of expandable storage and has added a slot for a memory card. 

2. Design

The design of the C20 is decent with the little laser-branding thing going on the back of the phone. The vertical strip on the rear enhances the overall look. This phone is not heavy and has a sleek finish, hence it feels good to hold it in hand. It’s lightweight and non-slippery like the Realme Narzo N53. This phone also has a face unlock and Google smart lock, which is quite unusual and surprising for phones in this price range.

The body is entirely made of plastic but feels good against the skin.  Honestly, there’s nothing to complain about the design of this phone because the Realme C20 price is quite fair, and what else do you expect from an economical phone? However, I would have appreciated Realme more for giving a fingerprint sensor in this phone because it lacks one, and typing a password or drawing a pattern every time you use the phone is daunting. 

3. Camera

The C20 phone has a single rear camera, which can be a turn-down for many people, but I would suggest you not make the buying decision based on the number of cameras because Realme is known for providing the best cameras. Though the C20 phone has a single camera, its camera quality is quite impressive. The pictures are quite clear even in the day broad light. 

Realme Phone camera quality

Being an entry-level phone, you should have realistic expectations with C20, so don’t expect an HD-quality camera. The photos look over-sharpened and lose their details when you zoom in, otherwise, pictures taken from the C20 device are exactly similar to the C21 device. I am truly impressed by the dynamic range and overall photo quality considering its cheap price. 

4. Battery

The battery is one of the strongest aspects of this mobile. With, a 5000MAH battery powered with an HD+ display, you will never get disappointed with this device while consuming content on social media. The battery is long-lasting and can easily last up to one whole day, even if you are a heavy user or play games frequently.

The battery endurance of the C20 mobile is commendable, but the 10W charger doesn’t align with the strong battery backup. With the sluggish 10W charger it takes forever to charge the phone, honestly, things would have been a lot better if the Realme had also included fast charging support. 

5. Connectivity and Speakers

The C20 mobile of Realme offers 3G, 4G, and VoLTE connectivity options and also features HD voice calls on supported networks. It also supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity to quickly pair devices and ensure a stable connection. Furthermore, this mobile also consists of a MicroUSB V2.0 Port, which is quite rare in phones of this price range. 

C20 mobile ports

Google Chrome is a pre-installed browser on this phone and for real-time navigation, it features A-GPS, GLONASS, and BDS constellation. This phone has average speakers, like the phones in the Realme C series, but good quality audio-video calling will not be a problem with them. 

There’s no doubt that the impact of technology in our daily life is huge, but no one would have ever imagined that one day technological advancements of Realme would be able to avail a decent phone with a good camera at such an affordable price. However, the storage and RAM are low but considering the price segment I would say this phone works well if you don’t need it for heavy gaming and storing extensive files. 

Our Verdict

The C20 is one of the most economical and exemplary mobile phones available in the market. The camera and battery surpassed my expectations. With a sleek design, decent speakers, a good display, and powerful battery backup, the C20 mobile for Rs7,499 makes a good deal. The best part is, it can bear the load of light games without lagging too much. 

However, you may have some storage issues because C20 only has 32 GB storage which is way too low but to fix this issue, Realme brings you the option of inserting a memory card by adding an extra slot for a 256 GB card. This device also lacks a fingerprint sensor so either you need to enter the passcode or rely on the face lock which is a bit unsafe. 

My experience with this phone was good, but the fingerprint sensor really took a toll on me and pissed me off. Overall, the C20 mobile of Realme is a smart choice for economical users and brings good value for money.  If you can insert a memory card and don’t mind typing a passcode to access your phone, the C20 is worth investing in. 

Hopefully, this Realme C20 review helped you make a smart choice in getting a budget-friendly mobile. Marching towards the end, let’s quickly answer some of the frequently asked questions about this device.
