The phone display has a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels which means that images and videos will appear smoother and more responsive, making your gaming and scrolling experience more enjoyable. The display also has a peak brightness of 560 nits, so you can easily see it in bright sunlight.
While holding this device, I was able to see the dual camera system on the back of the Realme C51 which consists of a 50MP main camera and a 0.3MP depth sensor. After testing the main camera I was pleased by the quality of the images it took because when the environment was on well-lit conditions the main camera produced good images with clear details and vibrant colors. The depth sensor helps to create a bokeh effect in portrait mode photos. The main camera usually has an aperture of f/1.7, which allows me to take brighter photos because it captures light really well. At the same time, the phase detection autofocus ensured that i took photos that were sharp and in focus.
At the front, you get a 5MP selfie camera that comes in handy when taking good selfies images in good lighting conditions. However, one thing I noticed is that when my environment had low light the quality of photos was equally poor, and was struggling. The selfie camera has an aperture of f/2.2, which helps to reduce blur in selfies. At the end of the day for a smartphone that comes at this price range, you get a decent camera system that is well capable of taking good quality photos in well-lit conditions, but it may struggle in low-light conditions.
The Realme C51 is powered by the Unisoc Tiger T612 processor, this is a mid-range processor that we have seen in many other budget smartphones, the processor has an octa-core processor with two Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores.

Overall, the Realme C51 has a decent performance for an affordable smartphone. It is capable of handling everyday tasks, but it may struggle with more demanding tasks.
