Dubbed as the new latest budget smartphone king, Realme C1 offers a variety of features that are made to delight consumers with a very limited budget. Some consumers dream of getting a Samsung smartphone, but because of their relatively higher offer price, consumers look for something more affordable without compromising performance and style.

Today, we’re quickly showing you some photos we took using 2 smartphones: one that budget buyers can actually afford (Realme C1), and another that budget buyers wanted to buy but currently somehow can’t afford. Check this out because you might be surprised to know that you’re probably not missing a lot if you’re getting this relatively cheaper smartphone from Realme instead.

For reference, here are the specs and prices of both smartphones.

In most aspects, it is obvious that Realme C1 can go head to head with the pricier Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018). The latter’s camera sets have higher aperture levels, and that’s the reason why most of the photos we took using it are brighter. That’s one of the biggest advantages of Samsung Galaxy J6. Another one is its ability to take Night Shots.

As you can see, you’re not missing too much if you got or you’ll be getting yourself a Realme C1. We’re gearing up for a more comprehensive comparison between these two devices in the next few weeks where we’ll cover game performance, battery, and additional camera photo and video comparisons.

If you have already decided to get a Realme C1, they will have a flash sale (December 12, 2018) at 12mn, which makes the phone tad more affordable by PhP500. Yup, you read it right: Realme C1 will just be PhP5,490 this 12mn!
