The oldest phone of the three, Realme C1, costs Rs. 6,999 for the sole variant with 2GB RAM/16GB storage.

Realme C2 vs. Realme C1 (2018) vs. Realme C1 (2019): Performance & Display

Moving to the Realme C1 (2018), it packs a 6.2-inch panel with HD+ resolution, an aspect ratio of 19:9, and a conventional notch at the top. The handset runs on a Snapdragon 450 chipset coupled with 2GB RAM/16GB storage which can be further expanded via a microSD slot up to 256GB. The handset ships with the company’s Color OS 5.1 which is based on the dated Android 8.1 Oreo.

Similar to the Realme C1 (2018), the 2019 model also has a 6.2-inch HD+ notched panel with an aspect ratio of 19:9. Powering the handset is still a Snapdragon 450 chipset, but it packs more RAM and storage which are 3GB RAM + 32GB storage. Users can also expand its storage up to 256GB using a microSD card. It also runs on the dated Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS 5.1 on top, but the handset should get an update to ColorOS 6.0 pretty soon.

Moving to the camera department, all three phones come with a dual camera setup. The new Realme C2 features a 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and a secondary 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. There are several modes such as AI Face ID, Portrait mode, slow-mo video recording, and some more. Up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. Keeping the phone running is a large 4,000mAh cell with no fast charging support.

Interestingly, the old Realme C1 (2018) and Realme C1 (2019) both have the same rear and selfie cameras as the Realme C2. They also support Face ID feature as well but lacks Slow-mo recording support. In terms of battery, the two phones even pack larger batteries compared to the newer Realme C2 with a 4,230mAh capacity.

Realme C2 vs. Realme C1 (2018) vs. Realme C1 (2019): Final thought

I must say the Realme C2 doesn’t have a lot of significant upgrades over the Realme C1 (2019) that launched two months ago or even the last year’s Realme C1 (2018). In terms of camera, the phone has the same rear and selfie cameras and its advantage in this aspect is the slow-mo video recording support.

On paper, its MTK Helio P22 SoC should be more powerful than the Snapdragon 450 SoC, but we still have to conduct actual tests to make sure that is true. It also ships with a more recent Android 9.0 Pie compared to the dated Android 8.1 Oreo.

However, the most important thing is that the prices of the two older phones are not significantly cheaper compared to the Realme C2. Therefore, I would say choosing the Realme C2 is always a better option.
