Smartphones are improving each year and we have been witnessing this since we are in this field. Mobiles in all segments have gotten better. Innovation might be on a plateau but budget range phones are getting better swiftly. Companies are focusing on mid-range and budget segment these days. Realme C3 is one example of this. The company has launched the realme C3 in Nepal with the tag line “Triple Camera, Game Monster”. It uses a Mediatek Helio G70 processor, so we will discuss gaming power and performance. The Realme C3 price in Nepal is Rs 16,990 for the 3/32 GB model. It bears specs similar to many other phones in the market. So let us see how it stacks up against them.
Realme is one of the fastest-growing Chinese brands in Nepal and India. They have gained a good customer base and market share in a very small time. The company launches products that meet people’s demands on the correct price tag. This is why they are growing fast in the Indian market. Nepali market is also seeing same effects. This new phone or realme C3 is also addressing the needs of budget range users. The company is providing big screen, bigger battery, good processor and nice looks.
As the tagline goes, it has three cameras at the back with many features such as slow motion. This is not common in cheaper phones. The C3 comes with Helio G70 which is a gaming-centric processor with MediaTek HyperEngine game technology. It is good for people who want a reasonable phone with powerful hardware to do daily work and provide some horsepower for gaming. These days people play more games on smartphones compared to computers. This is why companies are focusing on this more than ever.

In Nepal, we are getting the global version which comes with triple cameras at the back. Other regional models only have 2 back cameras. At the front, there is one 5 MP selfie camera which is the same in all variants. Here we can see that Realme C3 has a 6.5″ LCD screen with Gorilla Glass protection. It is very good to have protective glass in the budget. The notch at the top and forehead bezels are also small. Therefore in terms of design, the body of the C3 looks pretty good.
Inside there is Helio G70 processor with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. It is powered by a 5000 mAh battery which has 10W fast charging. This is a good processor for games and slightly demanding apps. The processor is accompanied by LPDDR4X RAM which is faster than conventional LPDDR3. People who like games can enjoy a good performance with HyperEngine Game Technology. It helps to manage resources and provide better power efficiency.
Cameras and Other Features
This is a global version with three cameras. Realme C3 has one main sensor that is 12 MP and can take 1080p videos at 30fps and also slow motion at 120 fps. Next, there is a 2 MP depth sensor and 2 MP macro lens. This setup supports 4x digital zoom and has AI-related features such as AI HDR and AI beauty. Chroma Boost and Expert mode are some other features found in the camera app in the C3. The front 5 MP camera also has AI beautification which improves photos. There is Pano-Selfie which helps to take wider selfies.
Realme C3 comes with many good features baked in the software. The UI has a feature called Quantum Animation Engine which improves screen fluency. There is Display Latency Optimization which helps to improve response time. This makes the phone feel more smooth and fluid while using. These things provide a better experience for smartphone users. The company states that they have tried to make the UI near to stock as possible. Companies have to make some changes to UI to provide new and additional features. This is why we see different interfaces from different companies.
On the backside of the phone, there is a fingerprint scanner that unlocks in 0.27 seconds according to the company’s PR. The front camera comes integrated with Mediatek’s Secure ISP. It helps to make face unlock faster and secure.
The Realme C3 has a very good processor for the price. It is mainly meant for gamers who are in a budget. This smartphone also has a big screen with Gorilla Glass. There is faster memory and sufficient storage expansion support. The C3 is powered by a 5000 mAh battery which is very good. It is a good gaming and media consumption device for youths with neat features. Realme C3 is an entry-level device so it provides the best it can for the price.
There are many features we like and there is only one thing that we would like the company to improve. It would be better to have an ultrawide lens instead of a macro in our view. That provides better value and usability. Except for this, the specifications are good for the price. Overall Realme C3 price in Nepal is reasonable and the hardware provided is also good. It is a nice option for many people at this price range.
