Realme recently launched its latest budget series smartphone, realme C15 on August 18th, 2020. Today we are going to share our first impressions on realme C15.
realme is a subsidiary brand of BBK Electronics same as Vivo, OPPO, and Oneplus. In May 2018, realme launched its first phone in India as realme 1 which was a huge success. Soon realme started following Xiaomi’s footprints and launching budget and feature-rich smartphones in a very aggressive pricing model. Now within 2 years span, they captured a very large portion of the smartphone market of India and literally competing with Xiaomi (Mi and Redmi). Even realme has also entered the flagship category with its latest products like the realme X2 pro, X3, and X50 smartphones.
Before we discuss our verdict, pros, and cons, let’s see the technical specification, box contents, and design of the new realme C15.

This phone is really for someone who looking for basic usage at around 10k price point. At this price segment, rear camera configuration, massive 6000 mAh battery, and aggressive pricing are highlighting point of this smartphone.
Additionally, realme UI provides near to stock android feeling with a few bloatware and essential functionalities like call & screen recorder, etc.
If you are in a tight budget or looking for a basic smartphone as a secondary device, I would recommend the realme C15 smartphone to you. But please keep in mind resource-hungry gaming is not recommended on this device.
Also, if you want to go for a stock android smartphone in a similar budget (Rs. 11499/-), check out the Moto G9 review. And with a small bump to around Rs. 13000/- to 14000/- Nokia 5.3 and OPPO A53 could be a more viable option.
