5 reasons why realme C2 is the budget phone upgrade you deserve

Realme C2's PH price is highly appealing, the new #EntryLevelKing?
Diamond cut design back

1. Unique design, big screen, high screen-to-body ratio - Realme C2 is a are budget phone with a flashy looking diamond cut design back. It comes in two stylish color options, the spectrum blue and spectrum black. The company also claimed that its paint never wears out.

Aside from that, it is a handset with pretty large screen for the price. Yes, the display of the realme C1 last year is bigger at 6.2-inches, but personally I like the slightly smaller 6.1-inch display of realme C2.

Why? It is one of the rare budget phones with tall HD+ 19:5:9 screen ratio. Its also using the tiny dewdrop notch to house the selfie shooter instead of the large traditional notch.

The result? It goes with a large 89.35 percent of screen-to-body ratio.

Bonus: It even has an unspecified Corning Gorilla Glass protection to protect the screen from breaking when dropped and unwanted hairline scratches.

2. Pretty good specs for a budget phone - Most of the time, budget phones in this price point are powered by the weaker SD425 or MediaTek A22 chips, but the realme C2 is powered by a 12nm MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core with AI capabilities and the PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Having said that, realme C2 is faster than most similarly priced phones. There are very that can compete with its speed at this price point.

Realme has two memory configurations for the C2, you can get it in either 2GB RAM/16GB ROM or 3GB RAM/32GB ROM.

The internal storage is even expandable up to 128GB with the use of a dedicated microSD card.

Not bad!

3. Large battery capacity - My favorite feature of this phone is its large 4,000mAh battery. Its 6.1-inch display with "not-so-power-hungry" HD+ resolution and power-efficient 12nm chip could make it last for more than a day on a single charge.

It also has a pretty fast 2 hours of charging time using its stock USB wall charger.

4. Capable cameras - Realme ensured that it also has a pretty capable dual-camera setup for a budget phone. It comes with a 13MP f/2.2 + 2MP f/2.4 dual-camera setup, the same numbers found with the C1. But, it now has PDAF for faster and more accurate focus.

It also goes with 
AI scene detection/optimization, Chroma Boost technology to enhance the colors of your daylight shots further, bokeh mode, and up to 80fps 480p slow-mo videos.

It you like taking selfies, you can use its respectable 5MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture size and 1.12μm pixels. The selfie cam also comes with AI face beauty, AI portrait mode, and AI face unlock.

The AI face unlock is also fast and responsive.

5. Affordable price tag, nationwide availability - Realme C2 with 2GB RAM/16GB storage is just priced at PHP 5,490. The 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant retails for PHP 6,490 only.

Unlike other bang-for-the-buck budget phones that is hard to find, realme is nearly everywhere.
