Should You Buy?

The Realme C1 brings down the very trending feature of a big bezel-less display with a notch at a very affordable price. With its glass-like glossy back, the phone looks very stylish and beautiful, and it also packs in a good processor along with a huge battery which delivers great backup. However, it misses out on a fingerprint scanner, has got low RAM and storage, and comes with an average selfie camera. But still, if you want to experience a phone with good design and bezel-less display at an affordable price, the Realme C1 can be a very good buy.
