Features Explored : The realme C55 as the Leap To Champion

As we’ve previously covered, realme Malaysia had recently announced that their C55 series is now available in Malaysia with an attractive starting price tag of RM 699. It was quite the epic launch event, with the smartphone constantly proving itself to be the “Leap to Champion” that it really turned out to be, offering a slew of great features that well exceeds its retail value. Here’s some of the fine pickings we’ve compiled that we felt needs to be put in the spotlight. 

Large RAM, Large Memory

Going for the RM 799 variant, the C55 boasts 256GB of internal storage and up to 16GB RAM with DRE (Dynamic RAM Expansion) enabled. It’s currently the largest internal memory available in the price segment, which is particularly useful for people who download a lot of apps, shoot lots of photos or even keep lots of videos for offline viewing. 

Here’s a typical, ballpark list of just how much of just how much media you can keep on the C55!

  • About 53760 photos or songs at 4MB each
  • About 860 apps at 250MB each
  • About 860 720P videos at 250MB each
  • About 70 games at 3GB each

If these aren’t enough for you, you can still expand storage via a microSD card which is part of the C55’s triple-card slot, so you don’t even have to choose between using 2 numbers or 1 number and 1 memory card! 

The next concern is multitasking if you keep forgetting to close unused apps. At native, you will have 8GB of RAM available for all tasks, which is already quite a good amount for a phone under RM 1000. If you need to speed up because you need to run lots of apps simultaneously, you can expand the phone’s RAM by adding virtual RAM from DRE, which allows you to add up to another 8GB of RAM, giving you a total of 16GB for all your multitasking needs. This effectively increases the number of background apps you can run, as well as a much smoother operation in the long run.  

Flagship Camera System 

The C55 uses the realme GT Master Edition’s Omnivision OV64B 64MP sensor. Although it’s just one sensor, it can actually be a very versatile camera. Why? Because of its high pixel count. You will still be able to shoot close up zooms and even ultrawide from digital zoom/cropping, and because you have a high pixel count, zoomed in photos will still be sharp even if it’s not from a dedicated zoom lens. 

Imagine yourself trying to take photos in a crowded street and you can’t control where people walk but the area is nice. Just simply take the shot as you would and just crop to the focus area you want to focus on. You’ll always be able to get your ideal shot after that without losing out on detail since it’s well preserved from the high pixel count and the size of the sensor (which is ½”). This is quite the value point as you’re essentially getting a once-flagship sensor on an entry level device, equipping you with everything you need to take great shots when you’re out!

Less Down time, more Fun Time

With so much talk about battery life these days, it’s not always about the battery capacity, although the C55 already has a massive 5000 mAh. Combined with an energy efficient Helio G88 chipset, the realme C55 easily lasts over a day regardless of how heavy a user you are. Whether you spend your entire day on social media, Netflix binging or just gaming for hours on end, you’ll never have to worry about running out of juice before you get home. 

However, at some point, you’ll eventually run out of battery and need to go through some down time. Fortunately it’s not that long as the C55 charges up to 50% in just 30 minutes so you can get back to your day in just a moment.
