Budget phone specs fight

Build/Design - The two use a curved polycarbonate back and a notch display. A01 is smaller in Black and Blue colorway. C11 comes with a larger build and a textured finish to prevent fingerprint smudges and scratches.

Display - The realme C11 has a 6.5-inch 2.5D curved LTPS with 1600 x 720 HD+ resolution at 269 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3+ protection. A01 uses a smaller 5.7-inch 2.5D IPS screen with HD+ 1520 x 720 resolution at 295 ppi.

realme C11's screen is one of the best for the price. Since it is larger, it is more immersive as well. It also goes with a taller 20:9 cinematic aspect ratio.

Specs - C11 comes with the new budget gaming-focused 2.3GHz 12nm Helio G35 octa-core processor with PowerVR GE8320, 2GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, and a 5,000mAh big battery.

Meanwhile, A01 goes with the 1.95GHz 12nm Snapdragon 439 octa-core processor, Adreno 505, 2GB RAM, 16BGB storage, and 3,000mAh battery.

In terms of processing speed, it is a close match. But, the new MediaTek SoC of the realme contender scores a bit higher on benchmarks. C11 has double the storage and a larger 5,000mAh battery as well.

Cameras - The realme C11 has a dual-camera setup with a 13MP f/2.2 main sensor with PDAF + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor with LED flash. For selfies, there's a 5MP f/2.4 sensor.

Samsung Galaxy A01 loads with the 13MP f/2.2 + 2MP f/2.4 setup with LED flash. It has no PDAF focus and handheld Nightscape mode, unlike the C11.

For selfies, the advantage goes to the Galaxy A01 with a brighter 5MP f/2.0 aperture camera sensor.

Other features - realme C11 has WiFi, 4G LTE with VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, OTG, face unlock, Dirac HD sound, Bluetooth 5, P2i splash resistance, and dual SIM slots. It also runs with Android 10 OS.

Galaxy A01 has no water splash resistance and it still runs with Android 9 OS.

realme C11 advantages -  Bigger screen, a slightly faster chip, more storage, larger battery capacity, better camera features, the more affordable price tag
Samsung Galaxy A01 advantages - Brighter selfie cam

Our thoughts

It's a mismatch. The slightly pricier Samsung Galaxy A01 is no match in terms of overall specs except for the slightly brighter selfie camera.

Overall, the realme C11 is ahead in terms of display, processor, battery capacity, camera features, water resistance, and OS.
