Realme C1: 5 Features of the Latest Oppo Sub-branded Phone that Fares Better Than the Xiaomi Redmi 6

Realme C1 is an impressive entry-level smartphone with an attractive price tag. Find out how it's better than its fellow entry-level device, Redmi 6A.


Realme managed to keep its entry-level smartphone, Realme C1, under the wraps and launched it alongside the Realme 2 Pro. The smartphone brings impressive features and specifications at a very attractive price. Hence, it has been pitted against the entry-level devices from Xiaomi and Vivo. Here, we are listing the top features of the Realme C1 that make it a better choice over the Redmi 6.


Between the two, Realme C1 is easily a better-looking smartphone with slim bezels, a glossy back, and a notched display. The Redmi 6, on the other hand, features a  plastic body with thicker bezels. Furthermore, the Redmi 6 device has a smaller display and the overall look disappoints.


In terms of display, the Realme C1 features a 6.2-inch IPS LCD screen with 720 x 1520 pixels resolution and an aspect ratio of 19:9. In comparison, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 sports a 5.45-inches LCD panel with 720 x 1440 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The Realme smartphone is way ahead of the Xiaomi handset in terms of both display and design.

Camera Features

The imaging department features an almost similar dual-camera setup, but the Realme C1 sports better figures. The Realme C1 comes with a  dual-rear camera setup comprising a 13MP primary camera along with a 2MP depth sensor. The Redmi 6, on the other hand, sports a 12MP primary sensor, paired with a 2MP depth-sensing unit at the rear. On the front, both the Realme C1 and the Redmi 6 feature the same 5MP camera unit.

Battery Capacity

When it comes to battery capacity, the entry-level Xiaomi device is no match for the Realme C1. The Realme smartphone packs a massive 4230mAh battery, which can last up to two days straight on a single charge. In comparison, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 comes with a 3,000 mAh battery.

Performance, Hardware

So, this aspect of the comparison is a little tricky. The Realme C1 comes with a Snapdragon 450 SoC, while the Xiaomi Redmi 6 flaunts a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset. In terms of speed, the MediaTek Helio P22 performs better than the Snapdragon 450 SoC. However, when it comes to gaming, the SD 450 performs better and has even scored higher on the Geekbench Single Core and Multi-core tests. The Helio P22 is more efficient when it comes to battery consumption, but then the battery on the Realme C1 is huge as compared to the 3,000mAh capacity battery on the Redmi 6. So, if you value speed more than the battery life, the Redmi 6 is a better choice. And, if the battery life takes priority over anything else, the Realme C1 is your go-to.

So, that’s a wrap from us on convincing you the Realme C1 is a better pick when it comes to overall performance and looks. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 6,999 and is available at Amazon.
