Realme C2 2020 hardware
Have you checked the latest Realme C2 2020 news to know the hardware components of the device? Well, here is what it has to offer;
Realme C2 2020 has an impressive appearance. It has an easy to clean and lightweight plastic casing. It is available in Diamond Black and Diamond Blue colors. The volume buttons of the phone are on the left side while the power button is on the right side.
The selfie camera is located at the center of the device. The earpiece is just above the selfie camera. On the backside of the device, there is a white Realme logo at the bottom left side. At the top left corner, there is a dual system camera and LED flash.
The 6.1-inch display panel has an area of 91.3 cm2. Its display technology is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. With an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels, an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, and approximately 282 PPI density, the phone gives an excellent display of images and videos. It is protected using Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology.
A MediaTek Helio P22 SoC chipset powers the phone. Its CPU specification is Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 and it has a PowerVR GE8320 graphics chip. With the processor specifications, the phone can comfortably support different applications and games. However, the processor is not good enough to handle triple-A games at the highest settings.
Depending on your storage needs, you can opt for either the base version or the high-end version of Realme C2 2020. The base version offers 2 GB RAM with 32 GB ROM while the high-end version has 3 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM. In either of the versions, there is ample internal storage space for data and applications, but if it is not adequate, you can use an external memory card. The smartphone accepts a microSD card of up to 256 GB.
The device ranks high among budget phones in terms of battery capacity. It has one with a capacity of 4,000 mAh that is charged using the micro USB port. However, the phone does not have a fast charging feature, so it takes a relatively long time to charge to full capacity.
Speaker and call quality
The smartphone comes with a mono speaker, which produces quality sound. The calls are clear, and you can also use headphones on the 3.5 mm jack to listen to audio files.

Realme C2 2020 review

Realme C2 2020 gaming review
With 6.1 inches display size, the phone provides a wide screen for enjoying games. It also has a PowerVR GE8320 GPU model and an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, which can offer a good gaming experience. The speed and graphics are, however, not to the best for AAA games with the highest settings.
Realme C2 2020 is slightly a better version of Realme C2. The phone has more storage capacity, which can cater to your storage needs adequately. The dual-camera system with 13 + 2 megapixels and LED flash are a plus as they produce clear images.
Most modern smartphones have fingerprint sensors, and its absence in this phone is a step-down. 4000 mAh battery capacity is enough to power the phone, but the 5W charger takes a lot of time to charge the battery to full capacity. You can opt for better brands with excellent features such as Xiaomi Redmi 7 and Realme 3i.
Currently, Realme smartphones are getting popular in the market because the company is designing phones that are tailored to meet the needs of a majority of people. Going by the estimated price of Realme C2 2020, it is an affordable phone with essential features.
