It is a small smartphone with a large screen ever.
In terms of HD + resolution with a 6.5 inch screen, I can personally get it with such a resolution. Although not as sharp as the same size Full HD + resolution screen But I didn’t see that pixelated pixel. In general use Watching gaming videos shouldn’t be a problem. But if you open to read a lot of text, such as reading Ebook for a long time, it may cause eye strain as well.
Overall for the realme C21’s screen is at a good level. When compared with the price Bright colors to a certain extent But personally, I think the screen will look a little bluish. And then there is an eye care mode That adjusts the screen to a warm color Suitable for use in low light conditions.

Interesting shooting modes in realme C21 besides picture mode Will be a person shooting mode That can melt the background Or it will be a highlight like Super Nightscape night mode without a tripod. Allows for bright night photography. And more sharp The night mode is rarely found in smartphones, the price is similar to the realme C21, which is another strength of this smartphone.
Overview for the rear camera of realme C21 is also within the acceptable criteria for entry-level smartphones. At the very least, it has a higher resolution camera than many brands. And coming with up to 3 cameras together, taking close by macro Or to shoot people with filters with B&W lenses, but unfortunately there are no ultra wide-angle lenses available
The images obtained from the rear camera of realme C21 are considered good details in sufficient light. Focusing is quite accurate and fast. With the PDAF focus system, although not very versatile shooting mode. But considered to be sufficient for use As for people or Portrait mode, the background melting is quite smooth.

The front camera of realme C21 gives a wide view. Selfie snapshots If it’s well lit I think this model is considered to be good to some extent. The presence of a portrait mode Helps to melt the background Despite having found some miss-cutting edges But considered acceptable compared to the price As for selfies in low light Will cause the image quality to drop considerably.
Another feature available in the realme C21 front camera is the Palm Selfie or just raise the hand to show the camera. Instead of pressing the shutter button When the camera is caught that a hand is raised A 2-second countdown will be performed, making the selfie more convenient.

Processor and Performance
Performance The model continues to opt for the MediaTek Helio G35 processor, a MediaTek chipset positioned as an entry-level smartphone gaming chip. And I have reported test results in realme C12 reviews using this chip already. That it can play some games But because this model A 4GB RAM variant has been added, making the processing performance a bit higher. Compared to the previous generation
To play this version of the game, I tested it with Free Fire game enough to play the game. But it needs to be adjusted to suit the game as well, as with the RoV game, I tried playing with a low level graphics mode in 30fps mode, it was enough to play as well.
General use part Since this model provides 4GB of RAM, it makes general usage a certain level of fluidity. But if you open multiple apps at the same time and switch apps back and forth frequently, there will be some lag. However, the overall picture is acceptable. When compared with the price of the body Especially use it to open the app, I won, or various banking applications.

High-saturation, icons, backgrounds and UI animation animation, user can customize icons by themselves. Using the home page is an App Drawer to separate the application page from the home page.
In terms of power management, realme C21 comes with a battery of up to 5000 mAh, able to standby the device for up to 47 days. If I have not played the game continuously for a long time, I think 1 day and a half – 2 days can still charge one time. Is to be assured that the battery is too long to be used in 1 day for sure And not only the battery is durable, but the realme C21 also does a Reverse Charge, changing itself to a Powerbank to charge other smartphones via a USB OTG cable as well (must be purchased separately).
I tested it by charging to 100% from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., having played two ROV games together, found that the battery was about 89% left. Power management is quite good. But the observation is in reverse charging. With a 10W power adapter in the box, charging takes about 2 hours.
Power Management Usually the battery is very durable, realme C21 also comes with the super power saving mode, Super Power Saving Mode, which allows the user to select 6 main active applications on the screen.
