The budget segment is witnessing a stiff competition with both Xiaomi and Realme running neck-to-neck.

Aesthetically, all three smartphones are made out of plastic and sport a tall display featuring a waterdrop notch. While the Realme 3i and the Realme C2 offers a diamond-cut design, the Realme 3 comes with a dual-tone gradient design, which is also a widely adopted trend in the smartphone industry.

The Realme 3 is quick in picking up fingerprints, while the matte finish on the Realme 3i and Realme C2 protects them for getting dirty instantly. If we talk about the color options, the Realme 3 is available in Dynamic Black, Radient Blue, and Classic Black. The Realme 3i can be purchased in Diamond Blue, Black and Red colors, while the Realme C2 in Black and Blue.

The only difference in the design of the Realme 3i and the Realme 3 is that the former has a dual-tone paint job. If you look at them from the front, you will hardly be able to notice any difference in design. It's the rear panel which makes them distinct. Overall, all the three devices offer a good looking design that is less flashy.

The Realme 3i and the Realme 3 sports a 6.2-inch display, while the Realme C2 comes with a 6.1-inch panel. The waterdrop notch on all three of them is smaller in size and doesn't hamper the viewing experience.

The displays deliver similar performance on all three devices. You get a bright and colorful output with good viewing angles suitable for standard media consumption. There is no specific winner in the display department as you get a same configuration on all three.

Up front, the Realme 3 and the Realme 3i packs a 13MP selfie snapper, while the Realme C2 comes with a 5MP selfie camera. The rear camera is capable enough to capture good quality daylight shots.

Backing up the Realme 3i and the Realme 3 is a 4,230mAh battery, while the Realme C2 packs a smaller 4,000mAh battery. But that's acceptable considering its lower price tag.

All of them offer a good backup and lasts for a day with moderate use and a single charge. Notably, there is no support for quick charge on any of these devices. If you are performing some extensive tasks you might need to charge the devices twice.

Who's The Winner?

Who's The Winner?

Realme has come a long way since its debut back in 2018. The company has been eyeing the budget smartphone segment and has offered some value for money smartphones.

Apart from the aforementioned devices, the company has other quality smartphones in its portfolio. Some of them include, the Realme 2 Pro, Realme 3Pro, and Realme U1.

As for the Realme 3, Realme 3i, and the Realme C2, these are one of the best budget smartphones which you can buy if you don't want to go for Xiaomi or Honor. You not only get capable hardware, but also a reasonable price tag.

Personally, I would place my bets on the Realme 3 as it brings some competitive specs to the table without burning a hole in your pocket.
