Often times, the start of classes also means buying new things from new books, bags, school supplies and a lot more. It’s no surprise that June is also the best time to get yourself a new smartphone. Good thing, there are many choices available in the market now that not only performs well but also fits a student’s tight budget.
Realme is relatively new in the country but it is not when it comes to offering great devices at affordable prices. In less than a year since its operation in the Philippines, it has grown exponentially. In April 2019, Realme reported a 900% increase in sales after the release of the budget-friendly Realme 3.
With this rapid success, it is of no surprise that they continue to provide bang for the buck devices. Launched in June 2019, the Realme C2 is an entry-level smartphone that offers great specs for its price, ideal for students who need an upgrade or for those who are looking for their very first smartphone.
We listed down six reasons why you should get the Realme C2 this back to school season.
For students, a smartphone is important. Not only is it used for communication, but it also allows them to be more productive in school.
Realme C2 is ideal for students because of its large 6.1-inch HD+ display with 89.35% screen to body ratio. The big screen of the phone is great when taking down notes, researching online, making documents and watching lectures. The screen is also made of Corning Gorilla glass making it durable and less prone to scratches even when you’re out and about.
Realme C2 sports a dual rear camera with 13+2-megapixel. It can produce clear and crisp images good enough if you want to take photos of your notes or lectures. It can also record in 1080p which means your videos are of high-definition.
The phone’s 5-megapixel front camera is also great for selfies, which means you won’t have any problems documenting your best moments and experiences in school.
Beautiful Diamond-cut Design
For an entry-level smartphone, Realme C2 doesn’t look cheap at all. Its diamond cut back shows a cool yet classic design. It is available in blue and black, and trust me when I say that either of the colors look absolutely amazing.
Long battery life
Gone were the days that you need to bring a power bank to keep your phone functioning all day. The Realme C2 has a 4,000 mAh battery that can last you for a day on a single charge.
This feature is very beneficial to students because it will save them lots of time especially when there’s no charging outlet nearby. Since students are almost always online for research and social media stuff, having a huge battery capacity is one of the most important must-haves in their smartphone.
Realme C2 is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 and runs the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system partnered with ColorOS 6.0. You won’t have problems multitasking with this phone because you can choose between 2GB and 3GB of RAM depending on your needs. For storage, there’s an option of 16GB and 32GB onboard plus the additional support expansion through a micro SD.
It also has Face Unlock Technology that you can use to keep your phone secured. Unfortunately, if you’re looking for the traditional fingerprint scanner, the Realme C2 doesn’t have it.
Lastly, what makes Realme C2 stand out is its affordable price tag. Simply present your non-Realme smartphone to avail of the Dare to Try promo and get the phone at a discounted price. You can purchase the Realme C2 starting at only Php4,990 for the 2GB+16GB version (from Php5,490), and Php5,990 for the 3GB+32GB model (from Php6,490).
