Realme C55: Should you Buy?

The Realme C55 base variant, at Rs 10,999, is an interesting offering and is surely one of the best value-for-money smartphones. The devices in Rs 10,000-11,000 segment do not offer all the features including the 33W SuperVOOC fast charging, a bright Full HD+ display, and a 64MP camera and as a result, the Realme C55 base variant becomes a lucrative offering.

However, at Rs 13,999, the Realme C55 8GB + 128GB variant does face some stiff competition from Redmi Note 11, POCO M4 Pro, and Infinix Note 12.
