Realme has been on a fray of launching smartphones. The company recently unveiled the Realme GT series, as well as new additions to its midrange 8 series. Moreover, for the entry-level market, Realme has launched C25Y and C21Y. Among the two, I’ve been using the Realme C25Y for a few weeks now and in this review, I will be sharing my experiences on how it performs in day-to-day life.

Realme C25Y Review:


  • 164.5 x 76 x 9.1mm, 200gm
  • Glass front, plastic back/frames

Starting off the review with the design, the Realme C25Y sports a textured surface on the back. To be honest, visually, it looks a little off-putting to me. Its textured pattern does feel pleasant in the hand though. I have the Glacier Blue color option, which has a bright blue hue on the bottom that fades into a light blue as you move up.

Furthermore, the rear includes a fingerprint scanner and a camera cutout. The fingerprint sensor works correctly, although Realme might have made things better by adding a different texture or a slight groove to it. Most of the time, I can’t tell where the fingerprint is since the texture is so similar.

Now, although the back doesn’t attract any fingerprints or smudges, Realme should have provided a case to wrap around the phone. Still and all, at 200 grams, the Realme C25Y will definitely make its presence felt in your pocket.
