Realme-C3-Review-NoypiGeeks-5736

Well, I guess we have a clear winner here. Realme is quickly becoming known as makers of value-oriented smartphones, and the Realme C3 is proof of that.

As you just saw on the specs comparison table above. The Realme C3 has better features to the OPPO A12 — all that while maintaining a cheaper asking price.

For one, the C3 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G70 octa-core processor, the first gaming chipset made for entry-level smartphones. On the other hand, the A12 settles for an aging Helio P35 processor.

The Realme C3 also comes with a 6.52-inch HD+ screen that’s bigger than the 6.22-inch panel that the OPPO A12 uses.

Along with the large screen is a generous 5,000mAh battery. This should easily provide better longevity than the 4,230mAh capacity that the competition has.

The Realme C3 also has the current Android 10 operating system with the company’s new Realme UI. Meanwhile, the OPPO A12 ships with outdated Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.1.2 for some weird reason.

If those are not enough, the Realme C3 has also overtaken the more expensive OPPO A12 in the camera department.

The 12-megapixel primary camera might look inferior to the 13-megapixel shooter of the latter, but we expect the C3 to take better images with its wider f/1.8 aperture. There’s also the 2-megapixel macro camera, which the A12 lacks.

Bottom line is, the Realme C3 was able to win this competition with its faster and more powerful processor, bigger screen and battery, and better cameras — all of that while having a cheaper price than the OPPO A12. You can learn more about it in our Realme C3 full review.
