Reviews for the realme C25Y

75.1% realme C25Y Smartphone Review - Inexpensive fast charging phone with temperature problem | Notebookcheck
The realme C25Y is still rather unknown as a low-cost smartphone, but it attracts attention with fast charging technology and a lot of computing power. However, we experience an unpleasant surprise during the temperature measurement after long load in the test.
82% realme C25Y review: solid battery life and a 50 MP camera
Source: Root Nation English
The realme C25Y offers great battery life and looks quite nice, albeit with a touch of retro (I’m talking about the gradient). You get good performance for its segment, a nimble fingerprint scanner, a full-fledged triple slot and a user-friendly UI. The display is also not bad, but I would like a larger pixel density and better viewing angles. Despite the fact that the main camera module is 50 MP, the photo quality is far from ideal (especially when shooting at night),and the selfie camera is weak. Also, there is no NFC and the main speaker at the back is inconvenient. But still, considering the cost and the set of features, the realme C25Y will satisfy the needs of an undemanding user who is looking for a basic device with decent battery life.

Realme C25Y Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
This time, Realme does not satisfy users because of cheap internal specs, the Realme C25Y smartphone becomes less demanding. A phone is stronger than others when it outperforms its competitor with better specifications. The C25Y phone comes with a basic chipset and besides, the Octa-core processor doesn’t offer much faster speed. Although the graphics unit and operating system handle most of the operation. Still, it is a decent phone in the low-budget segment. If you’re looking for a low-budget alternative option, the Tecno Pova 2 comes with better specs definitely check it out.

74% Realme C25Y Review: The Bottom Of The Barrel
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
To sum up our Realme C25Y review, it’s a rather unimpressive phone. While its appearance and battery life are somewhat appealing, the phone ultimately falls short of the competition in terms of performance, camera, and display. What’s more aggravating is that Realme is even scrimping on its software. Thus, as I mentioned earlier, spending just Rs. 500 extra in India would bring you a far superior Redmi 10 Prime. So, at this price, the Realme C25Y is a definite no-go.

realme C25Y Hands-On and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme C25Y offers a new 50 MP camera module, decent CPU performance, and a fair battery capacity. If compared to the realme C25, the specs are identical, the new Unisoc T610 processor is equivalent to the MediaTek Helio G85. The Redmi 10 Prime is its primary rival and is ahead in a few departments including the display which offers a 90 Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ resolution. The battery on the realme C25Y seems degraded (5,000 mAh vs 6,000 mAh), however, the design is now slimmer (9.1 mm vs 9.6 mm). It also misses out on a wide-angle camera, the smartphone offers a triple camera system compared to the quad cameras on the realme C25.

70% Realme C25Y review: yet another new entrant in the budget space
Source: 91mobiles English
The Realme C25Y seems to be a slightly downgraded version of the Narzo 50a and is actually priced at Rs 500 more. It does seem odd, given that the former is clearly short on a few key specs such as battery, a USB C port, and a better processor. The C25Y has the same primary camera and the same macro and depth sensors as the Narzo 50a. The only difference is that for the Rs 11,999 starting price, you are getting 128GB of storage as compared to 64GB on the Narzo 50a, but both phones do have support for a microSD card. If the internal storage is important and you don’t mind the switch back to micro-USB, the Realme C25Y could be worth a look.

ARM Mali-G52 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


T610: Entry level octa core SoC with two fast ARM Cortex A75 cores at up to 1.8 GHz and six power efficient ARM Cortex A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz. The SoC furthermore includes a LTE modem (TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TDSCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM), an ARM Mali G52MP2 GPU and a tri core ISP. The chip is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm FinFET.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.50":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.2 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


71.85%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
