The design of the Realme C15 is very similar to the other two C-series phones, i.e., C11 and C12. The design is clean and straightforward. There are two color options available for the buyers. These two colors are Power Silver and Power Blue Color and what makes it looks more beautiful is its geometric gradient design. If we talk about the rear panel of the device, we will find some textures on the panel; these textures also prevent the back panel from scratches and fingerprints to some extent. In terms of looks, Realme C15 looks so great that one cannot guess that it is an entry-level budget smartphone. The design of the Realme C15 is splash resistant. However, it feels heavy when you hold it in your hand as it has an extensive battery of 6000mAh capacity.

Talking about the front side of the device, it comes with a display of size 6.5 inches, which is big enough to give you a perfect feel while watching any movie or doing any other task. There is also a top-notch style front camera at the top of the phone's screen, which is 8MP.

All the necessary buttons are available, like the power button and volume buttons. The users can find the volume and the power button on the right side of the device, whereas slots for sim cards and SD cards are given on the left side. If we look at the bottom side of the device, we will find an audio jack of 3.5mm, a mono speaker, and a micro USB charging port, which are placed very well.

On the back side of the Realme C15, there is a quad camera setup given by the company, and you will also find the branding of Realme there. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the back side of the device.


The display size of the Realme C15 is 6.52 inches and has a resolution of 720x1600 pixels. The display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3+, which prevents the display of the smartphone from getting minor scratches. If you look at the edges of the display, you will find thin bezels all around it. The display size of this device is large enough and gives you an impressive feel if you are playing games or watching any movie on it. It also offers wide viewing angles along with perfect color grading. Users will not have difficulty using the phone under sunlight as it has extraordinary brightness levels. The screen-to-body ratio of this device is 88.7%, which is very impressive, and the user may also change the color temperature as per his needs and requirements.

There is also an Eye Comfort mode given in the Realme C15, which helps reduce the blue light the screen emits, and because of that, the user does not feel any strain on his eyes.


The processor used in the Realme C15 is an octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 12nm. The variants of Realme C15 available to the users include 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and the other with 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage. Furthermore, the users can expand their device's storage up to 256GB using a microSD card.

The interesting thing here is that the processor which has been used in Realme C15 is the same processor that has also been used in Realme C11. Therefore, the performance of these two Realme smartphones is very similar because of the same processor. However, despite having the same processor, it has been observed that the overall performance of the Realme C15 is smoother than the Realme C11. Also, in terms of multi-tasking, the Realme C15 is the winner. The users will not face any lag, and the applications' opening is much faster than Realme C11.

It is important to note that if you are looking for a hardcore gaming device, there are better choices than Realme C15; however, it performs well when you use it for casual gaming. You will be satisfied with the audio quality of the device in both situations, whether you are using its loudspeaker or with earphones on.


The software used on the Realme C15 is the Android 10 operating system, and the user interface used is its own Realme UI v1.0, which we all know offers a ton of different features. This user interface of Realme offers its users an app drawer in which the users may keep all their applications in one place, and they can arrange it according to their needs and requirements, which makes it easy for the users to find their applications.

The best part about Realme's software is that, unlike some other smartphone companies, it allows its users to remove or uninstall apps that came with the phone as pre-installed apps. This means that buyers of these smartphones can uninstall applications they do not use, and this also helps them to free up some storage space.

Another best part about this smartphone is that it has the feature of personal information protection. It works in such a way that when an application requests the personal information of the user, it provides a blank information page to that application. This feature of Realme ensures that the user's data, like contacts, texts, and call history, remain safe and secured.

Some typical modes are also available in UI, which the users may access, like dark mode, focus mode, or any other standard Android 10 features. Of course, it has all the features that stock Android offers; however, the look and feel of the UI might be slightly different.


The camera setup of the Realme C15 consists of four lenses and a LED flash. The primary camera is 13 MP with an aperture of f/2.2; the other one is an ultra-wide camera of 8MP 119° with an aperture of f/2.25. The other two cameras include a mono sensor, which is 2 MP of f/2.4 aperture, and one is a retro sensor of 2MP. If we talk about the front camera, it is 8MP, which has an aperture of f/2.4.

The camera's performance of the Realme C15 is impressive, considering the price segment in which it falls. The quality of the image and the color reproduction are also sharp and refined. As the aperture of the primary camera is significant, it can allow more light to enter, which could be helpful for users when they are trying to take pictures in daylight. The cameras perform well because of the large aperture, and the pictures we get contain fine details and sharpness, making it a perfect shot. Despite having a quad camera setup, we cannot expect much from this phone in terms of photography in low light.

Connectivity and Port

The Realme C15 offers several connectivity options to its users and ensures that they stay connected wherever they go. This device supports 4G LTE connectivity, which means that users can access reliable and fast internet. Unfortunately, the phone lacks 5G support. The wireless connectivity options that the Realme C15 offers to its users include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. All these connectivity options enable users to share anything from their device to any other device, connect their device to any fast wireless connection available, and stream or browse anything on their device hassle free and without any buffering.

The Realme C15 offers users a micro USB port to charge and transfer data. While the industry is transitioning to USB Type-C, the micro USB port on the Realme C15 remains functional and widely compatible with various accessories and charging cables.

In addition to the port for charging, the Realme C15 also offers a port for a 3.5mm headphone jack which is helpful to the users for connecting any wired headphones or to connect to any other device like the external speaker or any other audio equipment. With these connectivity options and ports, the Realme C15 ensures a versatile and hassle-free user experience, whether connecting to the internet, transferring files, or enjoying your favorite audio content.

Battery: Power to Last Throughout the Day

One of the most impressive parts about the Realme C15 is its outstanding battery life. Realme C15 comes with a massive battery capacity of 6000 mAh, which helps users keep up with their busy lifestyles. It is best for all types of users, be it a light user or someone who spends hours on their phone. In all such cases, the Realme C15 proves itself to be the best in terms of battery life and does not disappoint anyone.

The battery capacity of the Realme C15 is so good that it would not be wrong to expect it to last for the whole day, even after using it intensively. No matter for what purpose you are using this smartphone, whether you are streaming videos, playing games, or browsing social media, you can undoubtedly rely on the performance of the battery of the Realme C15 without worrying about charging it again and again.

Also, even though the charger provided here is not Type-C, the battery of the Realme C15 takes a satisfactory time to charge because of its fast charging technology. This enables users to quickly charge their phones without waiting for too long. Fast charging technology is one of the features users seek in their smartphones, which also plays a very important role when deciding to purchase a smartphone.

If you spend a lot of time on the smartphone and are fed up with frequent battery drains after a short period of use, then Realme C15 can be the best option if you want to replace your smartphone.

Verdict: A Budget Smartphone that Packs a Punch

The performance of the Realme C15 is also very reliable due to the adequate support for the processor and RAM, that is, the octa-core Helio G35 processor and 3/4GB of RAM. The device's functioning is smooth and lag-free, whether browsing, playing games, or streaming any video.

Considering its price range, the quality of the camera, the sharpness, and the details of the pictures it clicks are also quite impressive. However, if you are looking to buy a phone with a high-quality camera, there may be better options than the Realme C15, and then you may have to look for a smartphone in a higher price range.

The device's battery and fast charging technology make it a popular option among users in the low-to-mid price segment, as the battery life and performance of any device are what most people look for while purchasing any phone. Also, the fast charging technology saves a lot of time for the user, which is very important in this fast-moving world.

Considering the affordability and overall package, the Realme C15 is an excellent choice for those seeking a budget smartphone that doesn't compromise on performance and features. The only major drawback of this phone can be gauged as the non-availability of 5G support.
