Realme C2 looks to be the phone for those who want a flashier looking design and slightly smaller screen size. It might also be the more power efficient phone, thanks to its 12nm chip. It has the higher main camera sensor as well.

On the other hand, Redmi 7 should be the phone for those in need of a bigger display, slightly faster processor, larger selfie camera sensor, fingerprint scanner, and face unlock tech.

It could go either way depending on what you need.
