realme C35 vs C25: duel of generations has advances and returns |  Comparative

The realme C35 arrived to be a basic device with a series of differences in relation to the C25. The problem is that these changes can include both major advances and some setbacks.

In the duel of generations between the basics of Chinese, does the greatest amount of advantages go to the oldest or the most recent model? The TechMarkup Comparative tells you the answer now.

design

really C35

Starting with the design, we already see some important changes here. The textured matte finish and simpler curved body of the C25 gave way to a glossy paint job and straight sides. The material is still plastic, but it has taken on a less basic look.

The notebook is now thinner and lighter than before, and the camera block has been updated to a layout similar to other phones of the brand. At the front, realme chose to keep the drop-shaped notch.

really C25

Another evolution is in biometrics. The fingerprint reader, which used to be on the back, has now been moved to the side, integrated into the power button. However, both are still without a certificate of resistance against water and dust.

The drawer with three slots was kept, to house two carrier chips and a memory card separately. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are fifth generation, but NFC has remained outside of them.

This is an issue where we have only seen advances from one year to the next. That’s why the realme C35 opens the scoring.

Multimedia and Resources

Screen


The manufacturer has not changed the IPS LCD material of the screen, but the brightness of the duo does not disappoint for the category. But realme made other important changes. The size has become slightly larger, but the edges have been reduced, and now we have a superior front usability.

The resolution was also increased and went from HD+ to Full HD+. Too bad the refresh rate didn’t go above 60 Hz, which makes the smoothness of the system animations more limited.

Again, we find relevant advances in the C35. So he scores one more point.

Sound


realme didn’t want to improve the sound and left only a mono speaker in its latest base, as it already happened in the predecessor. This means that immersion will be compromised when watching movies and listening to music, for example.

At least, we had an evolution in sound power, which was above the segment. In terms of quality, the C35’s audio also offers a better balance between bass, mids and treble. The physical headphone jack remains, but the accessory is still out of the box.

It’s one more point for realme’s recent model.

System


Both the C35 and C25 come equipped with Android 11 factory installed. As they are entry-level smartphones, don’t expect a great longevity of updates on them either.

The Chinese left the two without 5G support, so know that the mobile network will have its restrictions over time. At the very least, you’ll get cleaner software than expensive models, which makes the overall fluidity a little better.

When we move on to features, we don’t find the same amount of functions as the brand’s advanced lines. At the very least, you’ll get some like Sidebar, with shortcuts similar to Samsung’s Edge Screen, and native dark mode.

With no differences from one generation to the next, we draw a tie here.

Performance
really C35
really C25

realme switched the Helio G70 platform from the C25 to the Tiger T616 on the C35. Did MediaTek’s move to Unisoc deliver results in performance? From what we saw in our tests, there was a considerable gain. The youngest completes the two laps with 30 seconds less than the predecessor.

It is possible to see this advantage of the recent model also in the benchmarks, but the difference is more discreet, whether in the numbers of Geekbench or AnTuTu. The power gain also allowed heavier games to run with less problems, but don’t forget that none of them are suitable for gaming.

It’s one more point for the realme C35.

Drums

really C25

The main return that we can see from one year to the next was in drums. The Chinese dropped from 6,000 mAh to 5,000 mAh in the recent cell phone. In practice, the fall was even more felt. The autonomy went from almost 42 hours on the C25 to just 22 hours on the C35.

When charging, the manufacturer kept the 18 W adapter in the package. As capacity has decreased, the newest one takes almost an hour less than the predecessor’s more than 3 hours. Even so, it still needs to be more than 2 hours in the socket.

We understand that the shorter charging time of the C35 doesn’t make up for the duration by almost half. Therefore, only the C25 scores here.

Camera

Both smartphones have a triple set of cameras. realme changed the main 48 MP from the older one to 50 MP in the recent model. The problem is that Unisoc’s hardware leaves performance more limited than MediaTek’s.

As a result, the photos taken, which no longer had dynamic range and textures as strong, end up getting even worse. The night mode also made a comeback and now it distorts the colors more.

The macro sensor of both is the same and has similar defects, whether in low resolution or lack of autofocus. Apart from that the quality of the images here is also less efficient in sharpness and contrast in the newer one. To top it off, the blur lens now registers even more errors than before.

The C25’s less limited hardware gives it the point here.

On both sides, we find support only for Full HD videos, but only the C25 is capable of recording at 60 fps. None of them come with very agile stabilization or focus. At least the older one still has slightly better image quality, not to mention the stereo audio capture.

That’s why the realme C25 scores again.

Photos taken with the realme C25

realme did not change the front camera and kept the 8 MP sensor from the last generation in the recent one. Because of the hardware difference, the performance ends up being different. The C25 records slightly more decent photos, with more acceptable night selfies, even dependent on a good light source. The C35, on the other hand, takes the best shots from the front, as it is the only one compatible with Full HD resolution.

Best night selfies against Full HD head-on videos. One point for each.

Price

The realme C25 arrived cheaper in Europe, at the suggested price of R$ 1,600. The C35 arrived in the country for R$ 1,900. In the current market, both are cheaper, but the older one is a little lower. As any economy already makes a difference in the consumer’s pocket, even the short distance is significant.

Therefore, the C25 takes the last point of the Comparative.

Conclusion

When comparing the two generations of the realme basic line, we can see where the evolutions and setbacks were from one year to the next. The C35 now has a more modern and compact design, the screen has gained Full HD resolution, the sound is more powerful and balanced, and the performance is faster.

On the other hand, the C25 still does much better in terms of battery life and has a set of cameras that offers higher quality, mainly due to the hardware capable of better exploring the sensors.

Both also offer the same native version of Android, which guarantees the presence of similar features. But the older model is still cheaper in national retail, something that may have a greater weight in your choice.
