The Realme C25s has a capable gaming performanc
The Realme C25s comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ display that offers pixel density of 214 ppi. The pixel density does not leave much room for any scaling and the large bezels on the screen do not make it easy for most people to use it one-handed. It is very bright and the colors on the Realme C25s are nice and vibrant, though sometimes there are some tiny dead spots. The real appeal of the display is the brightness level it offers, even outdoors, which is very impressive. The screen also offers a good viewing experience with minimum color distortion, and vividness and contrast is also up to the mark. Under the hood, the Realme C25s packs MediaTek’s Helio P22 octa-core chipset which includes Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and Mali-G51 MP3 GPU.
It has a neat interface to work on
The Realme C25s runs a modified version of the company’s ColorOS which is based on Android Oreo 8.1. It features a horizontal-scrolling app tray and a dual-screen system that is similar to the one on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro. The top layer offers a primary camera, while the bottom screen acts as a space to view media content. The top-half screen is customizable to show a floating window for calling, checking your emails, and other similar purposes. The bottom-half screen has additional functions like a mini viewfinder for taking selfies and checking your notifications, and a convenient home button for quickly unlocking the device. The design is only a bit unorthodox. But the layout on the first screen is probably more efficient to work with.
It has a decent set of cameras
The Realme C25 is powered by an entry-level MediaTek MTK6739WA chipset with 2GB/3GB RAM. It offers 16GB of storage, which is more than enough to store your personal photos, videos, music, etc. There is no microSD card slot, however. The Realme C25 doesn’t have the most brilliant dual camera setup, but it’s better than most of the entry-level smartphones in the market, especially if you’re not into photography. For selfies, it has an 8MP front camera, which has an LED flash. There’s no dual-lens selfie camera for making portrait pictures, and the low megapixel count for the front camera won’t affect your picture quality. The Realme C25 has a 13MP rear camera, which has phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and a single-LED flash.
It has a really long battery life
One of the features that people like most about this device is the sheer long battery life it offers. During my review period, I can say the battery lasted me around a week and a half, which is very impressive for a budget smartphone with an impressive set of performance specs. It charges to a very rapid 60% in about 30 minutes thanks to its fast 4,230mAh battery. However, the phone does not support fast charging. Overall, it has a standard design with a 5.45-inch HD+ display which is curved and offers a great experience with apps and games. The lower half of the display also includes a slightly unusual 2.5D edge design which gives the phone a nice curved appearance. In terms of the processing power, the device has a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
Its 3080mAh battery can last up to 40 hours
A big battery will usually be one of the key selling points on a budget phone. This makes the battery life aspect of the Realme C25s really crucial, as with a screen so dim, you will easily get a night time out of it. The Realme C25s has a big, gorgeous display with a very bright FHD+ Full View Display. This means the phone can be used in bright sunlight, though its brightness will often be too high for using in the wee hours. Thankfully, the display is consistent across the brightness settings, so you can tweak it to your preference. What makes the display even more impressive is the fact that the Realme C25s has a 2.5D curved glass panel with high brightness, as also many of the newer smartphones this year. Even when viewed from an angle, the display appears perfectly clear and sharp.
Its 15W fast-charging support
We all know that a powerful processor and a fast processor make your smartphone faster and more responsive. But did you know that the Realme C25s is among the first smartphones in the world to come with a 15W fast charger, which comes with dual chargers. The device comes with both the two-microphone-enabled earpiece that supports echo cancellation that ensures good call quality. Dual Cameras The Realme C25s comes with a 13MP main camera and a 2MP secondary camera. The company claims that the camera support Bokeh effect that blurs the background and adds a bokeh effect to the portrait shots. The rear camera also comes with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) that helps the camera to shoot faster and ensure quick focusing during the use.
We’ve seen similar devices with sharper FHD+ screens and higher CPUs with more RAM capacity for productivity tasks
The Realme C25s is a great budget phone. It’s all-round, with no compromises on the important aspects. For the price, it is really hard to find another phone that offers the same value. Moreover, Realme C25s is the first smartphone from the company to boast dual camera setup. One camera is an 8MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and the other one is a 2MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

The Realme C25s is a good budget smartphone, and is a great option for those who want a smartphone that’s fast, has good battery life, has decent camera, and is reasonably priced. But if you want better specifications, this is probably not the smartphone for you.
