Reviews for the Realme C53

79% Realme C53 review: cheap and cheerful
Source: Root Nation English
The realme C53 is a good phone and, most importantly, affordable. It has everything to satisfy an undemanding user: 90 Hz screen, 3.5 mm jack, beautiful design, NFC for contactless payments, flexible operating system and 5000 mAh battery. Among the disadvantages of this device are the long charging time, not the best camera, and mediocre sound. But does it really matter? If so, look for another model, which, by the way, will cost more. However, if you are ready to put up with these “disadvantages”, you will get a quite decent “friend” that will help you with basic tasks. realme C53 is suitable for both children and the elderly due to its ease of use and concise interface. I recommend it!

Realme C53 Review – 108MP Camera Under 10K!
Source: Cashify English
Realme C53 is a good option under 10K with a nice design and excellent cameras for the price. You also get a good battery backup with a very simple and subtle UI which really appeals to me. Other than that, the display is okay for the most part. The everyday performance of the phone is justified for its price and other phones in the price range would deliver somewhat same. The only reason to pick the C53 would be if you are a fan of Realme and want a solid primary camera at budget. Otherwise, you can get your hands on other devices that come with better storage, nicer display and faster charging speeds for a similar price tag.

realme C53 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme C53 has made a remarkable entry with its 108 MP camera, it’s no doubt a game changer when it comes to its camera quality and 3x in-sensor zoom, and well, it’s something new for the category too. With the 108 MP camera + 3x zoom, it can outdo its competition, the realme C53 is a competent rival. The 108 MP Samsung S5KHM6 is also seen on the top midrangers such as the realme 10 Pro Series 5G, realme 9 (4G), Samsung Galaxy M53 5G, Infinix Note 12 Pro, and motorola Moto G72 – all priced in different segments, however, realme has brought the 108 MP camera to the sweet spot i.e. under ₹10,000. Aside from this, it has a slim flat-style design, a 90 Hz display, a 5,000 battery, a Mini Capsule feature, 150% UltraBoom speaker, all of which make the smartphone check several boxes for an affordable entry-level smartphone. The realme C53 is a great choice for budget users who want a good camera experience under ₹10,000.

Realme C53 Review – A New Standard for Budget Phones?
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Realme C53 is priced at Php. 7,999 and it delivers an outstanding experience for an entry-level device. An impressive camera quality, long battery life, and fast charging, plus the premium looks. There are some minor issues though like we should have the option to switch from standard, adaptive to a 90Hz refresh rate instead of it being embedded in the adaptive feature. A different Android skin and a higher display resolution. But all in all, the realme C53 is a good and competitive budget-friendly smartphone that is of great buy for those on a tight budget and who needs a smartphone on a daily basis.

realme C53 Review
Source: Yugatech English
To end, the realme C53 is a decent device that gets weighed down by its below-average screen. It has a good speaker system, great build quality, and decent performance. However, I personally feel that paying more for a phone with a higher resolution display (and better viewing angles) is worth the money. In terms of price, the realme C53 can be purchased at an SRP of Php 7,999 (6GB RAM + 128GB storage). Anyways, what do you think of realme’s newest C-series phone? Do you think it’s worth the money?

6.74":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
