Realme C11 Available Now Only In Realme Authorised Dealer – Idris Electronics Raipur
Budget and mid-range Realme phones have looked quite similar in recent times, and fans have called the company out on this. With the Realme C11, the brand has actually made some noticeable visual changes, at least on the back. Primarily, the shape of the camera module has been changed from a vertical pill to a square. The square houses two camera sensors and an LED flash.
The plastic rear panel has a textured finish for the most part. There’s a strip of plain matte finish that runs down the camera module. This gives the back a dual-tone finish. The strip has the ‘Realme’ branding, which is subtle. The Rich Green colour option that we received is kind of an olive green colour, so it’s not too bright and looks quite mellow. While the rear finish looks new, we still feel the Realme C3’s Sunrise design looks more appealing in comparison.
There’s no fingerprint sensor on the Realme C11, so you’ll have to make do with face unlock. The side of the phone has a power button and volume controls, while the bottom sports a headphone jack, micro-USB port and a speaker grille. The left side has a triple card slot for two nano SIM cards and a microSD card.
Up front, the Realme C11 sports a 6.5-inch Mini-drop display with HD+ resolution. It’s a pretty standard screen, one we’ve seen several times on Realme phones in this segment in the past. The display offers adequate brightness levels indoors. The display quality is decent for its price and we cannot complain about it too much. With a standard 720p resolution, picture quality is about average. The phone does not support Widevine L1, so content on Netflix and Prime Video will be in standard definition.
The Realme C11 gets a 13MP primary camera accompanied by a 2MP depth sensor, which is a pretty standard setup for a budget smartphone. It’s only marginally better on paper compared to the Realme C3’s 12MP dual camera setup. For an entry-level smartphone, the Realme C11 does well in capturing attractive daylight photos. Colours look rich and vibrant and there’s a good amount of detail and contrast as well.
Realme seems to have taken a few steps back by using the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset on the C11. While it is a brand new processor, the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC is not nearly as powerful as the Helio G70 chipset that powered the Realme C3. In fact, even the company is comparing the Helio G35 with the Helio P22 rather than the Helio G70. For a phone that is seemingly a successor to the Realme C3, the Realme C11 doesn’t really match up in terms of performance.
The MediaTek Helio scored 105,251 in AnTuTu, but we couldn’t run Geekbench 5 on the phone since the app kept crashing. In comparison, the Realme C3 was miles ahead with a score of 191,814 on AnTuTu. On the bright side, the Realme C11 does outscore the Snapdragon 439-powered Redmi 8A, which managed a measly 85,700 on AnTuTu.
The Realme C11 comes with a 5,000mAh battery that promises a two-day battery life and it more or less delivers on this promise. This isn’t surprising considering the hardware is hardly demanding. With normal day-to-day usage that involves messages, social media browsing and occasional videos on YouTube, the phone will easily take you through a day and a half. Even on days where you find yourself gaming and consuming a lot of media content, the phone won’t give up on you easily. 1 hour of content on Netflix or YouTube drains the battery only by around 5 percent. We were able to average 7-8 hours of screen on time, which is pretty great. You get a 10W charger in the box that can fully charge the Realme C11 in about three hours.
