Design & Display
Realme C3i ‘s physical features are similar to Realme C3. The phone is tall with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and this makes it convenient to carry, so it is easy to grab and use in one hand.
There’s a 6.5-inch HD+ (720x 1600px) screen at the front with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection.
The bezels are quite thin but at the edges, the chin is rather prominent. There’s also a dewdrop notch on the phone which makes it look relatively modern. The screen has decent lighting with 480 nits max brightness, punchy colors, and nice viewing angles too. The low resolution is not a major deal, but when compared to one with a higher resolution you can find a small loss of sharpness.
With all of this, Realme is reinforcing its place in the budget segment by providing a good design aesthetic coupled with some common requirements for hardware and software.

You are getting dual cameras at the back. It comprises of a 12 MP (f/1.8) sensor, along with a 2 MP (f/1.8) depth sensor. Backed by AI, the cameras help you take better pictures.
Speaking of the front camera, it comes with a 5 MP (f/1.8) lens with HDR and different beautification modes.
Performance & Battery
Another aspect where this device works decently is the performance. In addition to Mali-G52 GPU, the device is powered by a Mediatek Helio G70 processor.
The performance is quite satisfactory for low to medium tasks. You won’t encounter any issues with day-to-day activities such as surfing the net, listening to music, watching videos, and phone calls. Multitasking is also pretty decent. The device can accommodate most of the casual games comfortably but you may find some latency when playing heavy games like PUBG.
The Realme C3i comes with 2 GB RAM 32 GB ROM. Other Realme C3i features include single-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB-OTG, and FM radio.
Moving to the software specs, the Realme C3i has the latest version of Realme UI 1.0 based on the Android 10. The interface is clean and has some pre-installed apps that you can remove if not needed.
All of the device activities are fueled by a 5,000 mAh battery. Even when you use it excessively, the battery can last longer than a day. Realme C3i requires a decent amount of time to juice it up because it does not support fast charging.

Realme C3i Price in Nigeria & Availability
- 2 GB + 32 GB: ~$112/₹8,500 ~ N40,000 – N45,000
It is already available in the Vietnamese market and the expected release date in India, Nigeria, and other parts of the world will be in the next coming weeks.
After entering the Indian market, Realme can’t just stop gunning for Xiaomi and Samsung with no sign of taken off the pedal!
In this price point, the Realme C3i will take on rivals Xiaomi and Samsung as well as their own counterpart as far as budget phones are concerned. Will the Realme C3i be able to differentiate itself from its rivals?
For the contras, the Realme C3i display isn’t that good. The handset comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ Dewdrop display with a 1600 x 720-pixel screen resolution. The display is just too ordinary for people like me who are interested in a quality display.
