The Realme C30 smartphone was announced in June 2022 and its expected price is $99 (Rs 8,499 in India) approx. The phone equips a 6.5-inches IPS LCD display panel with a 400 nits brightness rating.

At this price point, you can also consider the Redmi 10A which offers a better smartphone experience at just Rs 500 more. The Realme C30 is a decent overall device though, mainly lacking on the camera side of things. It offers a sturdy, rigid and lightweight design with a good in-hand feel, and performance levels are acceptable as well.

Now that we have thoroughly tested and taken a look at all the features and specifications of the newly launched Realme C30 we would honestly give it a score of 6 out of 10 and would recommend it to you, only if you can’t afford to go a bit over budget, mainly because although the phone feels and performs great in all aspects, the lack of a fingerprint scanner and the inclusion MicroUSB port on a smartphone in 2022 is a pretty big turnoff. Apart from the convenience of USB-C, MicroUSB ports tend to offer much slower charging as well as data transfer speeds compared to the former.

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.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
61.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
