SO you’re a recent graduate with decent work and want a reliable smartphone that won’t use up all of your paycheck. Or you’re a college student, who likes to browse on social media to learn new things and grow your knowledge and skill set, but aren’t willing to drain all of your savings. Or you’re just someone, who wants to properly manage your finances, always on the lookout for budget, bang-for-the buck deals, including on your everyday smartphone.

Well, realme just might have the perfect gadget for you – the realme C65.

Global electronics manufacturer realme recently released its budget offering – the realme C65, which looks like a winner with its mix of useful features and affordability as it delivers on what the brand calls a Quality Champion Experience.

48-month Fluency Rating

What stands out from the realme C65’s tons of features is its 48-month Fluency Rating and Low Blue Light Certification granted by TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in testing, inspection, and certification services — a game-changer for those who depend heavily on their devices as the unit has completed, and passed with flying colors, a series of comprehensive tests to determine its peak capacity. This means that the realme C65 will maintain its performance when properly cared for, ensuring a smooth user experience for at least four years, even as newer models enter the market.

Real Essentials

Another come on of the realme C65 is its Real Essentials, which optimize the user experience, including hands-free Air Gestures controls, a customizable Dynamic Button, interactive Mini Capsule 2.0, Rainwater Smart Touch, a quick and easy Smart Code Scan, Customized Lowest Brightness, AI Boost for performance, and an easy UI interface during Riding Mode.

Of these essentials, “Rainwater Smart Touch” is quite useful as it adjusts the screen for use even with wet fingers – perfect for those unexpected downpours, especially now that the Philippine rainy season has begun.

Battery and charging

The realme C65 also offers a 45W SUPERVOOC that promises charging from 0% to 50% in 30 minutes, then up to 100% in 77 minutes. (We’ll see if it lives up to that promise in the coming days.) Its 5000mAh Massive Battery allows a total Standby Time of up to 28.7 Days (at at least 5.6 days versus some competitors).

This means 36.5 Hours of Phone Calls / 16.6 Hours of YouTube / 22.7 Hours of Chatting on WhatsApp / 24.7 Hours of Twitter or X / 81.6 Hours of Music Streaming / 8.3 Hours of FPS Gaming with games such as Free Fire (HQ Benchmark) / 6.4 Hours of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

These three alone — 48-month Fluency Rating, the Real Essentials and the 45W SUPERVOOC Charge – give weight to realme’s promise of a Quality Champion Experience and seem enough reason for you to consider making realme C65 your next smartphone.


And then, there is of course, the sleek, slim design, with a metallic frame that gives it a surprisingly premium feel – simple, but it avoids the plasticky look found in budget phones (our unit is Starlight Purple and it looks great).

It’s also lightweight and comfortable to hold, what with its 7.64mm thickness, or slimness, for that matter.

Even with a large battery capacity of 5000 mAh measuring 4.4 in thickness, it only weighs 185 grams!

The back panel is a smooth, with its flat surface featuring a triple camera system.

There’s also the display, the large 6.72-inch panel that is certainly one of its draws. The display itself feels responsive, with a 120Hz refresh rate that makes scrolling a breeze.


The rear camera module holds a 50MP main shooter with an FoV of 79.5° and a Focal Length of 26mm. This camera is capable of taking 50MP Full Resolutions shots, can record video at up to1080p @30fps.

It’s paired with a variety of features embedded into realme UI such as the Portrait Mode, Street Mode, Night Mode, Tilt-Shift, Dedicated Filters and Dedicated Watermarks with a wide selection of choices for customization. The main rear camera above is paired with a secondary lens that acts as a depth sensor to support it.

A front-facing camera found at the upper hole punch at the top center. Has an FoV of 80° and an Aperture of f/2.05. This also supports video recording of up to 1080P @30fps.

The photos won’t blow you away, but they are decent and acceptable, with crisp and vivid colors, especially if taken with enough light.


Light gaming is possible with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 (6nm; 4G) processor yet to its fullest, and so are some of our usual smartphone work such as streaming, calls, emails and the like.


Overall, the realme C65 makes a strong first impression. It boasts of a stylish, slim design, a smooth display with a nice rain-friendly feature, a capable processor and fast-charging capability — at a price point that will bring a smile to the budget conscious.
