Before Realme came to Kenya. It made great phones in other countries in the world and made a good name. It is fast gaining popularity in Kenya, especially after it launched phones like the Realme 6, Realme C15, and Realme C12. This brand has done quite well in the few months it has been in the country. It is only a matter of time before it becomes a household name like its sister brand, Oppo.
Realme C11 2021 is an entry-level device that succeeds the Realme C11. It comes with a large battery and dew-drop display, which seems to be a standard for phones made after 2021. It has 2GB of RAM. Interestingly, its price in Kenya is only KSh11,299.
Should you buy the Realme C11 2021?
Realme C11 2021 is characterized by a new unique design that makes it stand out among budget phones in Kenya. It has an amazing battery life and fairly decent cameras for its price. They make this beat similarly priced devices from other brands like Infinix and Tecno.
Design and display
Low-end and mid-range phones have always been characterized by mediocre design. However, this is not something that can be said about the Realme C11 2021. The company has actually many noticeable visual changes that make the C11 2021 stand out as far as design is concerned. The shape of the rear camera module has been redesigned from a vertical pillar to a square. The square is home to one camera and a single LED flash. This phone features a plastic back panel with a textured finish covering most of the back. It has a strip of plain matte finish running down from the square camera module. The strip has the company’s branding.
This device does not come with a fingerprint sensor but it has face unlock. On the side, there is the power button and the volume rocker while the bottom houses the 3.5mm headphone jack, its micro-USB port, and the speaker grille. A triple card slot is on the left side.
Realme C11 2021 features a big 6.52-inch water-drop screen with HD+ resolution. The display offers decent brightness indoors. Generally speaking, this display is very decent at this price point and it’s hard to complain.
The Realme C11 2021 is powered by a 5000mAh battery. According to the company, this smartphone offers a two-day battery life. This should not be surprising considering the fact that the phone’s hardware is not demanding. If you are an average user, with normal day-to-day phone use involving messaging, social media browsing, and watching videos on YouTube occasionally, the C11 2021 will easily take you through a day. In addition, you get a 10W charger in its package. This charger can fully recharge the phone for approximately 3 hours.
Realme C11 2021 comes with an 8 megapixels camera. This is pretty standard for phones in the budget range. This is almost the same as what you get in other competing budget devices such as the Redmi 9A and the Infinix Smart 5. This smartphone should do well during the day when taking photos and videos outdoors.
The camera comes with the Nightscape mode, a feature that is missing in its predecessor. Nightscape allows one to take brighter and clearer pictures in places with low light.
Its 5 megapixels selfie camera captures decent photos during the day, better than what you would expect from an ordinary budget phone.
