Realme Pakistan has geared up its marketing game recently with the price drop of Realme C21 to 19,999 PKR. But does it really worth it. We have critically stripped the development to see if that is the best a user gets in that amount.
Realme C21 is a lower-end smartphone that was available for 24,999 PKR, recently before the price was downed. So why did Realme faced that pressure? We believe that the move was made, seeing the success of Poco M3. Recently Poco M3 price was also dropped down to 19,999 PKR.
Poco M3 is available through Daraz only during flash sale hours. It saw huge success and gave a tough fight to same category phones.
And, now Realme has followed its footsteps and is seeing some success. Realme updated its Facebook page to brag about the success story of sales of Realme C21 after the price drop. Another reason for the price drop can be the launch of Realme Narzo 30, which is available for 33000 PKR on Daraz Pakistan. Realme Pakistan wanted to widen the gap between both smartphones.
Realme C21 Specs – WIll you buy it after the Price Drop to 19,999 PKR
To be honest, if you are after a phone under 20K in Pakistan, then you can’t go wrong by buying Realme C21 at 19,999 PKR. Of course in this price range, you won’t be getting the premier features. Moreover, don’t expect some amazing camera results and best of the gaming performance.
Realme C21 comes in 2 colors of black and blue. It has 6.5 inches HD screen with bezels all around. A 5MP selfie camera is available in a waterdrop notch. Which performs well during daylight. Don’t expect miracles during low light or indoor conditions.
A triple camera set-up is present in the rear. With 13MP main shooter, a 2MP Macro camera, and a 2MP B&W camera. We are not so happy with the camera results, but that is what you get in that price range. The main shooter performs well if you get the lighting conditions right. For low-light and indoor photography, you should not bet your money.
An aperture of f/2.2 will give you a decent bokeh effect where you can separate the background. There was no need for a macro lens and instead an ultra-wide lens could have been a good addition. If you are a photography enthusiast then do check our article on the best camera smartphones.
Realme C21 Gaming Performence
Realme C21 is not for gaming enthusiasts. You can not play high-end mobile games like PubG in full settings. You will see some lag and refresh issues because the available chip is not very powerful. Realme C21 houses the Mediatek G35 chip which is based on 12 nm architecture. It has a 4GB/ 64GB combination of RAM and ROM. Prolonged gaming sessions will see heating issues and discharge of battery at a higher rate. A 5000 mAh battery is good for heavy usage during the whole day.

Fast charging is not an option in Realme C21. It does have 3 card slots where 2 sims and an additional SD card can be inserted.
The fingerprint sensor is available on the backside which did not give us any problems. So all in all after the price drop to 19,999 PKR, Realme C21 is a decent buy.
