Realme C53 Review: We reviewed the budget smartphone from the company and here is our quick review to let you know about the performance of the device.
Realme C53 Review
When it comes to the Indian smartphone market, Realme has been essential. The company has been releasing a variety of devices in India, from high-end smartphones to affordable gadgets. Most recently, the tech giant unveiled the C53 smartphone, which was priced at Rs 9,999 (at the time of writing, on the company’s website). Listed below is our review of the product so you can see how it functions.
Design and Display
The Realme C53, a smartphone for those on a limited budget, stands out thanks to its unique features. With a fluid 90Hz refresh rate display, a useful side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and the first 108MP camera in its class, it sets a new standard for the market. The plastic construction of the device features a dual-tone design with matte and glossy finishes. The protruding camera rings, despite their ergonomic design, compromise stability on flat surfaces.
Performance and Software
The Realme C53 handles basic tasks and social media browsing well thanks to its entry-level Unisoc T612 SoC and 4GB or 6GB RAM variants. The gaming and multitasking experiences are average, though, and there is noticeable lag when playing graphically intensive games like BGMI. These observations are supported by benchmark scores, which show that the device performs satisfactorily but has limitations in demanding situations. With fewer pre-installed apps and subtle UI changes, the Realme UI T edition, which is based on Android 13, increases user customization.
The Realme C53’s 108MP primary camera, which by default only takes 12MP photos, is its most notable feature. While the camera focuses quickly in well-lit settings, it has trouble maintaining proper contrast ratios, which leads to oversaturated colors and a constrained dynamic range. Due to excessive noise, indoor and low-light shots frequently lose detail, and the dedicated night mode is unable to successfully address this problem. Acceptable results are produced by the front-facing 8MP camera, but natural skin tones and facial detail are missing.
The device has a sizable 5,000mAh battery, which allows for more than a day’s worth of use with light usage. It achieved an impressive score of 18 hours and 30 minutes in PCMark 3.0 battery tests. With the included 18W charger, a full charge can be completed in about 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Overall, the Realme C53 offers a compelling package in the low-cost smartphone market. The camera’s performance falls short of expectations, despite its commendable design, display, and battery life. With a 4GB RAM variant asking price of Rs 9,999, it competes with devices like the Realme C55, which has better features like more storage, a better chipset, and faster charging. However, it appears to be a good deal for someone looking for a respectable device with good looks and performance in the sub-$10,000 range.
