realme recently launched here in the Philippines its newest C-series entry-level smartphone – the realme C55 dubbed as “the” STYLISH CHAMPION, this phone houses a fresh-from-the-lab “mini capsule” which is basically an interactive display add-on that shows information about battery and data usage status, and step tracking as well. A premium flagship feature similar or inspired by iPhone’s “dynamic island”, and a first in mass produced android devices.

The addition of the mini capsule may be the most flashy feature available in the realme C55, but that is just the “tip of the iceberg” – what it really offers consumers is an affordable, entry-level smartphone that has an elevated over-all feature in both design and performance!


The C55 is available in three minimalist, crisp, flagship-like squared-off and slim box design – sunshower, rainy night and rainforest. For this review experience, I have on my hand the “rainforest” which is actually my favorite among the three. By the way, while the package includes a case for the phone, and since it’s not transparent, I suggest you use the phone without the case (if you’re not too clumsy) because the case will just hide it’s premium-like look. That is if you want it as an accent to your OOTDs. It’s really that stylish.


Now, the first I thing I noticed about this phone and for me, its biggest come-on, is that it is a very huge phone! It has the largest screen and display among the C-series line up boasting of a 6.7″ FHD+ 90Hz Display and a total screen-to-body ratio of 91.4%. More screen means better viewing experience for both entertainment, games and productivity.

Everything is actually huge with this phone! Storage is expandable up to 1TB via micro-SD and the usable RAM can go as high as 16GB thanks to its dynamic virtual memory. Even the battery is huge! 5000mAh of juice and 33W SUPERVOOC fast charging that give users a half-filled power pack in under 30 minutes.


One of the usual weakness of entry-level smartphones are its camera capabilities because to be able to not go beyond its desired price ceiling, brands have to choose between speed and performance (usually for gaming) or its camera. And for a country with over 43 million active gamers every single day, naturally gaming wins. But that is not the case with the realme C55. You get both a very decent speed and performance for your games courtesy of its Mediatek Helio G88 chip PLUS a 64MP + 2MP AI Rear Camera and an 8MP in front. Focal lengths on the main camera is also adjustable to 24mm, 50mm and 120mm.

Here are some sample photos:

As you can tell, I am quite partial to a phone’s camera capabilities. If I see that you won’t get your money’s worth when it comes to photo quality then I wouldn’t recommend it. And on that note, I am recommending this! All photos were taken hand held like a point-and-shoot using just the automatic feature of the camera at normal focal length and without filters. So, tell me how was it?

Over all, the realme C55 is a step up for the entry-level smartphone segment. Big display takes the cake! Hoping that the mini capsule could roll out more additional features and updates in the future.

The realme C55 is now available in the Philippines in two variants: 6GB+128GB for only P8,999 and 8GB+256GB for only P10,999.
