Realme C55 Design
1/6 Realme C55 Design: The phone not only looks premium but is also comfortable to hold and use. It is slim (7.89mm), light weight (189.5g), and gets a pattern at the back panel resembling rain. Overall, it looks quite solid along with a nice build quality. (Priya/HT Tech)

2/6 Realme C55 Display: The phone gets a 6.72-inch display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. The screen embraces vibrant colours and commendable contrast. Watching movies, videos, and images on the device was pleasing. Even the touch response is fast, and smooth and shows no lag, making it easy to play games. (Priya/HT Tech)

3/6 Realme C55 Camera: The handset is equipped with a dual rear camera setup supporting a 64MP primary sensor; accompanied by a 2MP lens. The phone also sports an 8MP selfie camera. The images clicked during the daylight with the main rear camera are satisfactory and highlight every minute detail. However, pictures did get somewhat beautified and even looked a bit overexposed when clicked with the front camera. (Priya/HT Tech)

4/6 Realme C55 Battery: The 5000mAh battery easily survives a day and a bit more, depending upon your usage. The phone supports a 33W charger which takes around an hour to completely fuel your battery from 10 to 100 percent. (Priya/HT Tech)

5/6 Realme C55 Chipset and Mini Capsule: The phone uses the MediaTek Helio G88 chipset and the performance of the C55 was satisfactory for me. The iPhone 14 Pro-like Dynamic Island feature, named Mini Capsule, is almost similar except for the fact that Realme has restricted it to only three functionalities- showing battery status, data usage, and step stats. Not of much use, however, it is still a nice feature, if for no other reason than to make this budget phone stand out among other Android devices. The phone runs on Realme UI 4.0 based on Android 13. However, Realme C55 is a 4G phone. (Priya/HT Tech)

6/6 Realme C55 Verdict: The C55 is a great offering for a starting range of Rs. 10999. The phone gets a beautiful design, a decent main camera, and battery performance. The new addition - Mini Capsule - also helps in making the phone a quality buy despite. However, the fact that there is a lot of bloatware on the phone and it offers only 4G services can be disappointing. (Priya/HT Tech)
