Reviews for the realme C31

75.9% realme C31 review - The flagship of the low-cost smartphones? | Notebookcheck
If you have a small budget, you could hardly afford the fast memory in your phone until now. The realme C31 does pioneering work here and brings mid-range equipment at a very low price. However, some drawbacks remain.
60% Realme C31 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
When considering buying a cheap phone that a) looks as good as the Realme C31 and b) delivers great battery performance for such a low price, you need to ask yourself ‘What’s missing?’ and in this case, there are a few omissions which might give buyers pause. These are; a low-resolution display, poor cameras, single-band Wi-Fi and 10W charging. All of these drawbacks might not be dealbreakers for you, and might even be forgivable. But, when you consider that the Realme C35 comes with a more detailed display at Full HD, supports faster dual-band Wi-Fi, and comes with a faster-charging 18W mains adapter, and – here’s the real kicker – it only costs about £20 more, suddenly the Realme C31 does not look like a bargain. The cameras should be superior as well as the Realme C35 comes with a 50Mp main sensor. If you had the budget to splash out for something a little more powerful, then the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G, priced at around £239, might be more to your liking – it’s a 5G phone with a display that refreshes at up to 90Hz, and you can fully recharge the battery from flat in just over an hour.

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.
