The Realme C25s smartphone appears to have been quietly launched in India, as it is now listed on Realme India’s website with all of its features and pricing. The C25s is a new variant of the Realme C25, which was first announced in India in April. The Realme C25s has a starting price of Rs 9,999 ($137) and features the Helio G85 processor, triple 48-megapixel cameras, and a 6,000mAh battery.

The Realme C25s has a 48-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel B&W lens in its rear camera system. An LED flash, super nightscape, ultra-macro mode, and 1080p video recording are among the features of the triple cameras.

- a good display
- Cameras of average quality
- Design is uninteresting.
The Realme C25 is a standard budget phone with no special features in terms of build quality or materials used. In my hand, the weight is noticeable, as is the plastic unibody, which is easily scratched. By all accounts, the Realme C25 is a tough phone that’s also easy to hold. The back pattern, as well as the square camera housing and fingerprint sensor placement, are all familiar from previous C series devices. The phone’s thickness is increased by the 6,000mAh battery, which measures 9.6mm.
The device’s port layout is standard, though the C25 does include a USB-C port, which is a welcome change from the previous C series phones’ micro-USB ports. On either side, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker grille, as well as a triple-card slot on the left. The buttons are as tactile as a smartphone of this price range should be. Overall, I believe Realme maintains a consistent build quality across all of its sub-Rs 10,000 devices, and it can be classified as acceptable.
On the front, you’ll find a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD panel, which is in line with the device’s capabilities. The viewing angles are reasonable, and the colours are mostly accurate. OTT content will only be available in standard definition due to the lack of WideVine L1 certification. Realme, on the other hand, claims to have a TÜV Rheinland certification that protects your eyes from harmful blue light emissions. Thick bezels surround the C25’s screen, with the chin being particularly prominent, and a waterdrop notch at the top, as one would expect on a budget phone. The Realme C25’s brightness levels are excellent, and sunlight legibility is excellent.
The cameras feature a triple-lens setup that will be familiar to users of previous C series phones. A 2MP macro shooter and a 2MP mono sensor complement the 13MP primary sensor. The Realme C15’s ultra-wide sensor has been dropped, but considering the sensor’s quality, it’s not a significant loss. The Realme C25 doesn’t take particularly good photos, but there are few in the budget segment that can compete with it in terms of daylight photography. When there’s enough light, the pictures it takes are vibrant, slightly soft-focus, and have precise saturation levels. The Realme C25’s dynamic range isn’t great, but aside from that, it’s a good point-and-shoot camera.
The Realme C25, with its Helio G70 chipset, isn’t out to win many performance metrics, especially when cheaper devices like the Narzo 30A have the Helio G85 inside. However, a quick examination of the benchmarks on both devices reveals that the difference is insignificant. The Realme C25 received Antutu scores of 202,337, while the Narzo 30A received Antutu scores of 202,885. When it comes to Geekbench scores, the Realme C25 has 384 and 1,283 single and multi-core scores, respectively, compared to 351 and 1,285 for the 30A. There will be very little difference between the two devices in terms of regular use.
It doesn’t have a lot of features because it’s a budget phone. However, the device still includes some of the most useful features, such as a fingerprint sensor that works fairly quickly. The speaker isn’t great, and the earpiece doesn’t work as well as it should. I experienced no call drops or lags while using the phone on Jio’s Noida network. The Realme C25 runs on the company’s own RealmeUI 2.0, which is based on Android 11. The skin reminds me of OPPO’s ColorOS, which is a good thing because I like the clean, user-friendly design.
The Realme C25’s biggest selling point is its large 6,000mAh battery, which will easily last you two days on a single charge. It’s a fast-charging 18W battery that can be fully charged in about 2 hours. By the end of the day, I usually had about half of the battery left, based on my usage.
