Connectivity and Battery Life

The C1 is packed with your usual connectivity suite such as WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, and GPS. So far, call quality is clear and besides, this is highly dependent on how good the reception is in your area. GPS locks in quick and can accurately pin your location when using navigation apps like Google Maps etc.

one of the key selling point of this phone, is its large battery capacity. This phone is rocking a 4,230mAh battery .That included doing activities like surfing the web, streaming videos, taking pictures and a bit of gaming.


What really matters for a lot of people, of course, is the performance. This phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. Due to its meager RAM, we encountered a bit of lags whenever we tried to run multiple apps at the same time. But for basic productivity tasks like browsing the web, and basically just navigating, then it’s no problem. Since this phone doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, so we are left with the Face Unlock feature for security. So far, it’s pretty fast and responsive even dim conditions and is way faster than the Samsung A7 (2018)’s face unlock.

Now for gaming, heavy games like PUBG Mobile and Tekken Mobile are playable in low-medium settings but don’t expect a smooth gaming experience as frame drops are frequent. It also comes with Realme Game Space, which basically helps optimize games and blocks out notifications while you’re playing. For thermals, the phone gets pretty warm after long usage, but not too much to be alarming.

The Realme C1 is retails priced at PKR 18,999. The Realme is officially available on, from January 2, 2019, where you can get the device with a special discount offer in the price of PKR 17,999.
