The Realme C30s is a new entry level device, with a great value proposition. It packs a fast entry level Unisoc Tiger T610 chipset, a huge 6.5-inch LCD screen, a basic 8MP primary camera, a huge 5000 mAh battery, 15W fast charging and a side mounted fingerprint scanner. At its price, it’s truly a great bargain.
The Realme C30s comes with a 6.5-inch LCD screen with a dew drop design for the selfie camera. It has a screen to body ratio of 82.1% and quite bright and vivid, peaking at 400 nits with an aspect ratio of 20:9 and supports HD10+ which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has a plastic frame and back, and a Panda Glass front panel. Fortunately, it sports a headphone jack. It has a physical fast fingerprint sensor, conveniently placed on the side within the power button. It has a downward-firing speaker, which are great for playing media
The Realme C30s comes with the entry-level Unisoc Tiger T610 4G chipset, making it very fast and decent for gaming. It has a Cortex Octa-core CPU paired with an IMG8322 GPU, with storage options of 2/3/4 GB for RAM & 32/64 GB for ROM. It also comes with a dedicated expandable memory option, which is a plus. Running the latest Android 12 with a Realme UI Go skin on top, the performance feels very fast and premium. No lags or slow transitions on this one. Everything feels fast, fluid and rich in colour.
The Realme C30s has a solo camera arrangement on the back. It comes with a decent 8MP wide primary sensor, for those excellent daylight photos. Therefore, not much should be expected in the camera department. The video can support 1080p video at 30 fps, with HDR support & gyro-EIS stability assistance. The selfie camera is a decent 5MP wide sensor, capable of 720p video at 30fps. The selfies are decent and well lit.
The Realme C30s has no fast charging, so it peaks at 15W, getting the phone to fully charge in about an hour. That’s fairly usable. That in addition to the fact that it also comes with a Li-Po 5000mAh non-removable battery, which is rather generous. Even with a power user, this should be more than enough. Of course, there is no wireless charging here nor NFC for contactless paying. It comes in Blue and Black.
Similarly, priced phones would include Tecno Pova Neo, Nokia G21, the Oppo A16K and Realme C25Y. the main distinction at this price point is often a choice of a better camera or more memory. The sizes are usually standard, and the batteries are often huge. It’s unlikely there are fast-charging options as the price is too competitive. The design is great, especially the back panels and camera nodes which give great aesthetics. The OS will feel right at home, especially if you have used a Xiaomi phone before.
