The new Realme C11 comes as an answer for the issue of rising costs over the business. It is estimated at Rs. 7,499, and is situated beneath the Realme C3, which as of recently was the organization’s most moderate section level telephone. The spending end of the market, which is never-endingly pressed as far as edges and adaptability, is obviously the most noticeably terrible hit by cost modifications. In the event that your spending plan is not as much as Rs. 10,000, even a distinction of Rs. 500 among models and variations could swing your choice.
- The new MediaTek Helio G35 processor feels underpowered

The Realme C3 was propelled beginning at Rs. 6,999 toward the start of this current year, yet various amendments later a similar unit presently costs Rs. 8,999. The fundamentally the same as Realme Narzo 10A (Review) was intended to be a stage up, yet its cost of Rs. 8,499 declared in May has now become Rs. 8,999 also. That has created turmoil, yet additionally left a hole at the base of the market to be filled.
It’s disastrous that you aren’t getting as much for your cash any longer, however the previous not many years have seen such exceptional rivalry that the general norm for the spending fragment has risen significantly, and you should in any case have the option to get a decent arrangement. Is the Realme C11 the correct telephone at the ideal time? Peruse on to discover.
Realme C11 specifications and price
There’s just a single design of the Realme C11 at the hour of dispatch, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of capacity, and it will cost you Rs. 7,499. Realme has utilized the new MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, which is promoted as a “standard gaming” arrangement. Other than these center particulars, the C11 shares a ton practically speaking with the C3 and Narzo 10A. You get a fundamentally the same as 6.5-inch 720×1600-pixel HD+ screen, and a 5000mAh battery.

Realme C11 design
To the extent spending telephones go, I think the Realme C11 looks very great. It shares a ton for all intents and purpose with other spending plan Realme telephones, and not surprisingly, you wouldn’t effectively have the option to reveal to them separated taking a gander at them from the front. The screen takes up about the whole essence of the telephone, however there’s a genuinely thick jaw and a waterdrop score at the top. My audit unit had a pre-applied cement scratch defender that didn’t exactly arrive at the edges of the screen.
You have a decision between Rich Green and Rich Gray, which are both quieted and sufficiently impartial to suit everybody. At this value level, there are no polished completions or angles. The body is made totally of formed plastic, and the back has an inconspicuous surface of wavy lines, aside from a thick stripe that runs vertically through the camera knock. I like the impact, and it assisted with hold, however I additionally observed fine particles of residue and grime getting caught in the edges as I utilized the telephone.

Realme has at long last changed the standard elliptical camera module that we’ve seen on numerous models currently, going in for a square shape this time. There are just two cameras, so this was clearly done basically for style, however it works. I’m not an aficionado of the larger than usual Realme logo however, and you don’t get a case in the case with this telephone to cover it up.
The volume catches are over the force button on the right, which is unordinary for Realme. The organization keeps on utilizing the Micro-USB standard on its spending telephones, and the time has come to proceed onward. There’s additionally a 3.5mm sound attachment and a solitary speaker on the base.
Gauging 196g and estimating in at 9.1mm thick, the Realme C11 is generally cumbersome. I discovered one-gave utilize somewhat troublesome, yet the finished back makes it simple to rearrange this telephone around in the palm without stressing that it may slip. It doesn’t resemble a costly telephone, yet the fabricate quality is strong and I was unable to criticize the development quality or finish. I would have loved fortified glass on the front, however.
Realme C11 software and usage
Realme’s product is for the most part issue free, contrasted with what some different makers load onto telephones, particularly in the spending section. I didn’t experience difficulty with promotions or irritating warnings, aside from a couple misleading content “news” articles pushed by the Realme UI program. Taking into account that Chrome is on the homescreen, there’s no requirement for this program by any means, however I was unable to debilitate or uninstall it.
The survey unit that Realme conveyed had some preloaded bloatware, including in any event one application that is currently restricted in India. Realme explained to Gadgets 360 that a few clumps of the C11 were fabricated and bundled before the boycott was declared. While some early clients may likewise observe these non-practical symbols, the applications being referred to have been expelled from units dispatched out later.
The other preinstalled applications incorporate Doc Vault for your DigiLocker account, Realme Paysa for individual credits and protection (which expects authorization to continually screen your messages and area), Realme Link to oversee different Realme embellishments and get after-deals administration, a Realme Store application for purchasing items, and Realme Community for organization updates and discussions. Huge numbers of these applications have covering capacities, however some can be uninstalled.
Realme UI looks and carries on much like stock Android, and there are some customisations including subjects. Past the typical Android 10 highlights, you can change the symbol matrix thickness, alter symbol style, and initiate a few signals to make utilizing the huge screen simpler. Inside the Settings application you’ll discover choices for split-screen performing various tasks, application cloning, game enhancement, security insurance, and motions. One perfect touch is the capacity to impart your music to another person by utilizing Bluetooth and wired headsets at the same time.
Realme C11 performance and battery life
Being a passage level cell phone, the Realme C11 lets you run whatever Android applications you’d like, however the experience may not generally be extraordinary. I saw and felt some dithering at whatever point I did even basic things like waking the telephone from backup and pulling up the application cabinet or assignment switcher. There is recognizable slack when propelling and performing various tasks between applications, yet additionally while looking through photographs in the exhibition. It’s frustrating that the utilization experience wasn’t smoother.
Benchmark scores uncovered that the blend of the Helio G35 SoC and 2GB of RAM is just scarcely satisfactory for a section level telephone. Scores were around what we saw from the Realme C2 and Redmi 7, which are currently genuinely dated. I logged a score of 104,616 in AnTuTu, and Geekbench slammed in spite of rehashed endeavors to run it. The fundamental 3DMark Sling Shot designs test oversaw just 844 focuses, and GFXBench’s T-rex test additionally just figured out how to run at 33fps.
In case you’re hoping to run current-day games, you’ll need a higher financial plan. PUBG Mobile defaulted to its most minimal illustrations setting yet was as yet uneven, with loads of glitches and surface fly in. There was even slack in the menus. PUBG Mobile Lite was smoother, however. Black-top 9: Legends additionally required a significant stretch of time to load, and there was stammering during races too. The gaming experience generally speaking wasn’t extraordinary, yet in any event the telephone didn’t get hot by any stretch of the imagination.
The screen is quite acceptable thinking about the cost of this telephone. Hues are sensibly punchy and seeing edges are more than sufficient. Recordings look fine, however the speaker isn’t too acceptable. Music sounded metallic and brutal, and I found that even exchange was ill defined in numerous occurrences.
Then again, battery life is phenomenal. The low-end processor, combined with the 5000mAh battery, conveyed an incredible 28 hours, 25 minutes in our HD video circle battery test. With ordinary use, including a great deal of sound and video gushing, some camera use, and a touch of gaming, I had the option to make the C11 most recent daily and a half before expecting to connect it to charge.
Realme C11 cameras
My desires clearly must be in line while checking on an ease telephone. There are a couple of modes and choices, for example, Panorama, Time Lapse and Slo-mo, and Realme flaunts that the C11’s Night mode is a first at this cost section. Similarly as with everything else on this telephone, the camera application doesn’t stack quick which may make it difficult to make unconstrained efforts.
Photograph quality is to some degree baffling, however indeed we need to consider the value point that Realme has accomplished. Shading slopes and surfaces aren’t delivered such well, and detail is unquestionably lost in better articles. Blossoms and leaves didn’t generally look characteristic, and we likewise perceived how the C11 can battle with introductions when there are articulated features and shadows in a similar casing.
Picture shots had pleasantly obscured foundations yet presentation was more unfortunate. There’s likewise no real way to change the haze previously or subsequent to making an effort. A portion of the nearby ups we took came out shockingly well. Generally speaking, photographs look sufficient on the telephone’s screen and furthermore you can amplify and trim somewhat, however you’ll have the option to see the blemishes effectively at 100 percent scale.
With regards to low-light shots however, the Realme C11 truly battled. A few of our examples were too cloudy to even consider making out anything by any means, however some were worthy. The telephone experienced difficulty locking center and we’d need to tap the screen again after any development.
Night mode made a major contrast, however shockingly, not generally to improve things. The telephone did in any case experience difficulty centering, and the outcomes are marginally trimmed so you need to focus on outline arrangement. Night mode shots had much better differentiation and brilliant pieces of the edge were more honed. Then again, subtleties in dull areas were regularly lost, and what’s more, commotion was likewise more terrible. You may discover a night shot taken without Night Mode to be increasingly helpful.
Video is recorded at 1080p of course. It’s not really awful, however hues are certainly not dynamic and subtleties are simply normal. Any movement while recording video, even moderate panning, made the presentation change and some odd ancient rarities. Adjustment is totally non-existent. Film took shots around evening time is futile except if there is a wellspring of counterfeit light straightforwardly over your subject. The front camera makes sensibly great efforts in the daytime yet not around evening time, even in a sufficiently bright room.
After an extensive stretch of limits and value wars between cell phone producers, we’re seeing costs ascend over the business. A few models have had their costs expanded only weeks or months after dispatch, which obviously implies that a great deal of figurings and correlations must be modified before you can settle on a purchasing choice. It is without question baffling that the Realme C11 is more costly and less amazing than the Realme C3 and Narzo 10A were at the hours of their dispatch.
We would have loved better execution, and plainly 2GB of RAM is deficient – particularly since this implies an update to the full Android 11 experience will be outlandish. Utilization isn’t smooth with the C11, yet you’ll have the option to run the greater part of the applications you need. The camera is unexciting, however workable.
In setting of the new truth of today, this is as yet a not too bad section level telephone. Be that as it may, you’ll show signs of improvement experience in the event that you can spend somewhat more and get the Realme Narzo 10A. Also, you could sit tight for Xiaomi’s up and coming Redmi 9 arrangement, or consider as of late propelled spending models from Samsung, Infinix, and Honor
