The 7th of the realme C lineup to have launched locally. The realme C25 was introduced packed with leading smart & device technology giving users a bang-for-buck experience.

Just to share some of the highlights, just like its predecessors, the realme C25 features powerful camera capabilities and a trendy design with a massive battery capacity. Here's a quick unboxing:

  • realme UI 2.0
Let's start with the Design.
One of the smartphone brands who have been pushing the design limits every since is realme. Known to give some exciting colors and amazing geometric designs making you're entry-level phone not so entry level. But something is special with the realme C25. The back cover is this phone is process using the intdustry-leading German five axis precise radium engraving machine that undergoes 300 minutes of polishing. 

To add, there's 450+ curves engraved to create a special reflective light effect. This technology makes the realme C25 more colorful, appealing, comfortable in the hand and no fingerprint! It's also not slippery when you hold it in your hand. 

The realme C25 will be available in two exciting colors: Water Grey and Water Blue.

Display
The realme C25 has a large display of 6.5in or 16.5 cm. It brings a larger field of view and give a nice audio, video and gaming experience with its near-full-screen viewing experience.

Battery
Leading the way for a more packed device, realme has given users more power to last the whole day or even more depending on your use. The realme C25 is equipped with a large-capacity 6,000mAh battery. Just to give you a sample, the realme C25 can last up to 47 days on standby mode. Around 25 hours of watching YouTube Videos, 115 hours of Spotify music and 10 hours of playing Mobile legends!

When you're about to run out, be sure to switch to Super Power Saving Mode, With the remaining 5% you can still squeez around 2.18 hours of phone call. 1.6 hours of YT videos and 5 hours of Spotify. I hope this will be the standard for other smarphones also, the 6,000mAh would definitely be one less thing we need to worry about.

Helio G70 Processor
Known to really offer the best value, realme features a MediaTek helio G70 processor which is currently the best in its segment! It has an octa-core 12nm processor clocking at 2GHz and adopts a Cortex A75 structure and making it one of the fastest in its category. This makes the realme C25 handle medium to heavy apps and if you compare the realme C25 in its segment, it blows the competition out of the water.

It's also powered by the LPDDR4X RAM, and will be available in two variants. Compared to the LPDDR3, the graphic performance of the realme C25 has been improved by 20 percent and RAM performance by 100 percent.
Camera
The realme C25 boasts a 48MP AI triple camera setup, making it stand out from its competitors. The primary camera is a 48MP image sensor and f/1.8 large aperture that secures enough light to make pictures clearer and brighter. In addition, the camera also supports Phase Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) to make focusing more rapid and precise.

The realme C25 comes with a macro lens that allows users to shoot macro photos with sharp details. Here are some photos.

The B&W lens reproduces portraits in black and white, providing higher exposure and enhancing the contrast between the light and dark of images. Exposure, color temperature, hue and other parameters can be repeatedly fine-adjusted in portrait mode. Users can also give photos a retro film vibe using wide applicability to add texture to the final portrait-style photo.

The realme C25 has an 8MP selfie camera that supports AI beautification, HDR mode and portrait mode for the best camera experience in this segment.
Fingerprint scanner
The realme C25 has got to be the fastest fingerprint scanner I've ever tried. As in fast! It also has a facial recognition making unlocking the phone faster, safer and more convenient.

As for connectivity, SIM stay can accommodate two nano-sim cards and also have a micro-USB slot.

TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification
TÜV Rheinland stands for safety and quality in virtually all areas of business and life. Since 2006, TÜV Rheinland has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact to promote sustainability and combat corruption. 

The first smartphone to obtain the TÜV Rheinland High Reliability Certification
Over the last eight months, realme and quality specialists at TÜV Rheinland worked together to set new, upgraded quality standards for smartphones. The TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification sets a high-quality standard for consumer electronics and sets new industry standards for major markets around the world.
Every realme mobile phone goes through rigorous tests to guarantee users receive a quality product. The partnership ensures the realme phones meet quality standards and can keep up with our young users’ active lifestyles.

According to TÜV Rheinland's new quality certification standards, most test conditions are based on the three-year life cycle of smartphones. The TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification consists of 23 major tests, namely 12 daily use test scenarios such as drop, wear and tear; seven extreme environment test scenarios such as super high and low temperature, high and low humidity, voltage fluctuation, button life, static electricity and air pressure; and four components reliability test scenarios.

There's a whole lot more aside from the technical specs and what we see on paper. How is its usability? Well the realme C25 is sporting the realme UI 2.0. This give you more freedom to express your creativity and freedom to customize your device to your liking. You can also adjust the icons, fonts, the theme color and even switch to dark mode.

Other useful features but often overlooked by users are the security features of the smartphones. The realme added really good security features to the realme C25. Being online everyday we are also exposed on threats and other stuff. Our personal information are at risk, that's why the realme UI 2.0 also brings in the Deep Sea Privacy Plan. It is a system that keeps users' personal information protected. It will provide blank information to avoid the disclosure of real information such as call records, messages, address book contacts or schedules.
The realme UI 2.0 brings so many features to the realme smartphones like:
Subtitle Stitching - allows users to quickly splice the subtitles of their favorite movies and share them with their friends.
Dual Mode Music Share lets users quickly share files with other mobile phone users.
App lock and app hide - realme UI 2.0 supports the encrypting of specific apps that will require a special set of privacy password. realme UI also supports hiding particular apps that will require stealth to access.
Sleep Capsulesa feature to help users fall asleep better by preventing disturbances while the user sleeps. When this feature is turned on, the phone will lock for a predetermined amount of time and the user will only be able to use custom whitelisted apps. Sleep Capsule, however, can be blocked briefly with a reboot.

The realme C25 is priced at P 7,490 for the 4GB + 64GB variant and P 8,490 for the 4GB+128GB variant and I think it's worth it which ever variant you choose. All of these high-end features at an affordable price. 48MP Triple camera with 6000 mAh Battery and TÜV Rheinland Smartphone High Reliability Certification, this definitely takes the top spot in its category and price segment.
