The use of the latest Mediatek G35 processor is reportedly quite okay for gaming. Moreover, it is supported by a 5000mAh battery that will accompany gaming activities for hours without worrying about going back and forth to charge.
Not only that, the price of the realme C11 is also cheap. Comes in 2 variants, the price of realme C11 RAM 2 GB ROM 32 GB is priced at Rp. 1,599,000, but during the flash sale July 1, 2020 at 10.00 it becomes Rp. 1,499,000.
Meanwhile, the price of the Realme C11 version of 3 GB and 32 GB of RAM is marketed at Rp. 1,699,000, where in the flash sale it is Rp. 1,599,000.
If you are curious about the performance of the successor to the C2 realm, here are the results of the C11 realm review based on our experience while using it.
Seeing the appearance of the realme C11 is reminiscent of the realme C3, especially on the back cover. Where both have a slightly rough surface and carry a matte finish. The advantage is that it is not slippery when held and does not leave fingerprints.
The difference is, realme C11 adds accents such as a 1.3cm diameter ribbon that runs from top to bottom. Inside there is a thick realme logo that makes it different and looks more attractive.
This cellphone is available in 2 color choices, namely Mint Green and Pepper Gray (which we use). No less interesting is the camera module that is made in a box. Even though it only has 2 cameras, the use of its design is quite interesting and is becoming a trend.
The buttons and ports are no different from other realme phones. Volume and power buttons on the right, SIM card slot on the left and speakers and a 3.55mm audio port on the bottom Along with a micro USB charging and data port.
The Realme C11 has a fairly wide screen with a 6.5-inch span of HD + 720 x 1600p resolution. Carrying the mini-drop concept, the screen has an aspect ratio of 20:9 with an 88.7% screen-to-body ratio.
The right and left bezels are quite thin, although the chin is a bit thicker. However, it still looks quite roomy for the size of the price in its class. The advantages will certainly provide the best experience for games, audio and video.
realme C11 comes with two cameras in the section with a resolution of 13MP + 2MP. The 13MP main camera has an aperture of f/2.2 with PDAF support for faster and more accurate focus.
This camera also has a zoom feature with a maximum magnification of up to 4x. At least it can be used to take photos from a distance that cannot be reached.
Talking about quality, it’s not too special, but for the size of a cellphone in the same price range, it’s still very reliable. Here are the photos:
What makes the capabilities of realme cameras different from cellphones in their class is the existence of the Nightscape Mode. This feature is very helpful when you want to take pictures at night. While another camera with a resolution of 2MP is a depth camera.
For those who don’t know, this is a camera that allows you to produce bokeh (background blur) photos. Here are the results of bokeh photos on the Realme C11:
Video recording can be done with a maximum of 1080p FullHD video at 30fps. No less exciting, there is support for recording slow motion videos in it. Quite useful for making interesting slow-mo videos and sharing them to Instagram or Facebook.
Performance is one of the features highlighted by realme C11. Because it is claimed to be the first cellphone to use the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. This is the latest MediaTek processor in the lower middle segment.
But its performance has improved significantly. Overview of the Mediatek G35, an octa-core processor made with a 12nm production process and a speed of 2.3Ghz, adopting the Cortex A53 structure.
With speeds reaching 2.3Ghz making it one of the fastest and newest processors in its class. realme C11 is also powered by LPDDR4X RAM which improves graphics performance by 20% and RAM performance increases by 100%.
Suitable for novice users who are new to using Android phones or users who want to experience playing games but have limited funds. It’s just that the RAM support in realme C11 is not optimal.
At least that’s how it feels from the device currently being tested, because it is only equipped with 2GB RAM and 32GB ROM (realme C11 comes in 2 versions, namely 2GB RAM and 32GB ROM and 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM).
Quite a hassle when invited to do multitasking. Opening and closing many applications at the same time often encounter delays or delays.
Playing games is actually still possible, such as Mobile Legend, Free Fire including PUBG. It’s just that, specifically for PUBG, it is done at low settings.
But don’t just download and install the application, also pay attention to the storage capacity. From the 32GB storage capacity, the system has drained 12.50GB. This means that the remaining 19.5GB can be filled by other applications and files.
As for photos, videos or songs, you can maximize the provided microSD slot. Because realme C11 is also equipped with 3-card slots, two for SIM cards and one for MicroSD cards (up to 256GB).
5,000 mAh battery
Another excellent feature of the realme C11 is the large battery. To support user activities, this cellphone has a 5,000mAh battery capacity. According to test results at realme Lab, realme C11 can last up to 40 days in standby mode.
Meanwhile, when invited to play PUBG games, within an hour the battery drops by about 8-9 percent. Then streaming YouTube videos with a duration of 60 minutes is reduced by 5-6 percent.
Even to spend the remaining battery to 0 percent to do a charging test is rather difficult and takes a long time. Because the realme C11 battery is quite durable and the power management is quite good.
To recharge the battery from 0 to 100 percent takes about 2 hours 45 minutes. Meanwhile, in 15 minutes of charging, the battery is at the level of 15 percent. Then half an hour 26 percent and an hour 48 percent.
Oh yes, realme C11 also supports Reverse Charging technology which can be used to recharge other cellphone batteries.
As the latest release, of course, the C11 realm has also been equipped with an updated UI. This cellphone does run with realme UI based on Android 10 and ColorOS 7. There are many realme UI features that can be used for convenience, including:
1. Dual Mode Music Share very useful to enjoy the same video or song at the same time from the same device.
2. Focus Mode will help improve concentration and relax the mind by playing some relaxing music and activating DND (Do Not Disturb).
3. Personal Information Protection which provides a blank information page when the application requests to access the user’s personal information. This ensures your call history, contacts and messages remain private and prevents information leakage.
4. Dark Mode or Dark Mode
Dark Mode is optimized to work in more third party apps, the app drawer background shifts from light to dark when Dark Mode is enabled.
The table can be shifted left or right
The use of a 5000 mAh battery is indeed very well tested in realme C11. Can be the right choice for those of you who often do outdoor activities.
In addition, the use of the latest processor from Mediatek G35 is also quite interesting. With speeds reaching 2.3GHz, it’s actually quite okay for gaming, including multitasking.
However, this processor is not supported by qualified RAM (the device we tested was only 2 GB). However, for those of you who have limited funds but want the latest cellphone, the Realme C11 is a worthy choice.
But for those of you who are more inclined to need for gaming, maybe you can choose the 3 GB RAM version. While those who only socialize with media, the Realme C11 2 GB RAM is enough. Moreover, the price is cheaper.
