realme C3 price in the Philippines
realme C3 retails for only P5,990 (USD119). You can buy it now via the official realme store in Lazada, the link is here.
The yellow brand color is now prominent with realme, which makes the brand stand out. Here’s what you can find in the retail box of the realme c3.
Take note that realme did not include a headset already.
Aside from positioning this entry-level Android smartphone, the cameras installed are respectable. The rear camera sports a 12MP F/1.8 shooter plus two more for “macro” and blurring the background.
Here are the raw photos I took using the rear camera.
The front camera with 5MP with F/2.4 and AI features are also respectable. Here are a few of my selfie shots.
I like it that the front camera is wide enough that it has enough distance from the camera to your face.
