State of the Art Display and Camera Features

Display and Media

In terms of display, the realme C33 display gives off vibrant colors and the images are quite sharp. The display provides the user pleasant viewing experience. The speaker’s sound quality is fairly good as well.


The realme C33 is equipped with both front and rear cameras. The 5MP front camera is good for taking selfies and even has a beauty filter and other filters you can choose from. Its features include HDR.

The 50MP rear camera houses two (2) camera modules and has a dual-camera set-up that allows users to take wide-angle photos. It also has a single LED flash which makes it possible to take both photos and videos in the dark. The rear camera also features HDR and Panorama.

I brought the realme C33 with me out of town which gave me the opportunity to test out its camera features and photo quality.

Shot on realme C33

The phone is also equipped with a 1080p@30fps video recording for the rear camera while it offers 720p@30fps for the front camera.

For the front/selfie camera, the photo quality could be better but it is fairly good. Meanwhile, for the rear camera, photo qualities are also good, especially if taken in bright environments and spaces. Video-wise, it provides quality shot outcomes but could be sharper and clearer.

Performance and Charging

When it comes to its performance, the realme C33 runs smoothly while apps run in the background. This is because of the Unisoc Tiger T612 processor. It is good for light tasks and for general usage.

The phone’s battery generally lasts a day when used moderately because of its 5,000mAh and 10W battery. However, the battery is built inside the phone which requires a professional if it needs a fix. It is better to contact the realme Authorized Service Center.


If you are on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift that’s both functional and fun, then the realme C33 is the perfect one for you. Get a quality and reliable smartphone without making your wallets cry! What are you waiting for? Purchase now!
