Let’s face it. One of the biggest problems of owning a smartphone nowadays is battery life. Do you recall the time when you’re trying to save every single percent of your battery while you’re on vacation? Can’t take too many photos or else you’ll end up with a drained phone just when you’re about to upload your newly edited photos on Instagram.
Yes, we’ve all been there. Introducing the realme C15. Realme is boasting its brand new model with battery life as if it’s an actual power bank. We’re here to review the experience. Yes, we’ll discuss some technical aspects of it, but I think we’ll weigh on more with how we feel about it.
The realme C15 has a new geometric design and it comes with a now-trendy square rear camera setup design. The current line has two color options: Seagull Silver and Marine Blue.
We love that it has a 6.5″ large screen that brings an immersive visual experience. If you’re binge-watching Netflix shows, it’s large enough to share with friends because of the device’s ultra-high screen-to-body ratio of 88.7%
The realme C15’s 13MP main camera allows the capturing of clear details. Its f/2.2 large aperture enables the camera to take in more light, which is conducive for low-lit subjects. While the 8MP wide-angle camera, which has an aperture of f/2.25, has a 119-degree ultra-wide-angle field of view that can capture a wider frame of the user.
One of the camera features of realme C15 is the Nightscape Mode, whose algorithm allows it to take several photos in different exposures, and then combine the shots in one single photo, thereby optimizing the image’s brightness and highlights.
With C15, it has a nightscape mode. Nightscape Mode is what makes C15 the best night shooter in its segment. The algorithm of nightscape mode would take several photos in different exposure and then combine them to one single shot by picking the best parts in each photo. As a result, night shots would be remarkably brighter and clearer.
The realme C15 is the first smartphone in the world to pair a large-capacity 6,000mAh battery with an 18 watt Quick-Charge. Plus, realme is first to provide this unique combination in the Philippines. Through its Super Power Eco Mode, the realme C15 could be continuously used for apps like messaging, yet consume only 5% battery life.
The C15 has a 18W fast charger to fill up the large 6000mAh battery, which supports 10W reverse charging so you can also charge other devices. realme C15 features a mega 6000mAh battery that users can enjoy with non-stop usage.
According to realme Lab test, realme C15 could last up to 57 days in standby mode which is far better than some flagships. With special OTG reverse charge, realme C15 is also an efficient battery lifesaver. It’s equipped with 18W quick charge and takes up to 30 mins to charge to 25%.
The phone also has a super-power saving mode. In this mode, users are allowed to select six mostly used apps to keep active to achieve an extremely long battery life. Consequently, the phone will activate a more aggressive power-saving strategy. According to a study on user behavior, most people only use these six apps in 70-80% of all usage time of the phone. This Super-Power saving mode is designed to greatly increase battery life without compromising daily user experience.
The realme C15 has a Helio G35 Processor for all-around and multi-tasking, especially for gaming and entertainment. And it’s available in multiple configurations in the Philippines: 3GB RAM + 64GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.
The realme C15 packs the MediaTek Helio G35 processor, which is the best in its price segment. It is an eight-core 12nm processor that clocks up to 2.3 GHz and adopts Cortex A53 structure which makes it one of the fastest and latest in its category. It’s ideal for mainstream smartphone users and gamers because it could handle most mid-to-heavy
apps and games that are widely used. Compared to other phones in this segment, the benchmark score of realme C15 goes higher. The realme C15 will be available in two variants powered by the LPDDR4X RAM. Compared with LPDDR3, graphic performance is improved by 20% and RAM performance by 100%.
