Still looking for a do-it-all smartphone that won’t put a huge dent on your budget? #ChallengeAccepted, says Realme Philippines.

The Realme C25 has a suggested retail price of P7,490 (around $156 converted), but it will be discounted by P1,500 ($31) during Shopee’s Brand Day Sale from April 16 to April 18, dropping its price to P5,990 ($124) for a limited time. The C25 also qualifies for free shipping if you purchase it on the 18th. Water Grey and Water Blue are your color options.
The Realme C25, along with the Realme C21, is the first phone to receive the high-reliability certification by TÜV Rheinland, having gone through many test scenarios, including seven extreme-environment test. We first heard about this emphasis on product quality at Realme’s Quality Standards Launch Event earlier this month.

Another major selling point is the phone’s 6,000mAh battery, which supports USB-C fast charging up to 18 watts. It is quoted to last up to 47 days on standby mode, 60 hours when streaming music, and 25 hours during video playback. The battery can be charged back up to 29% in 30 minutes, which should be enough for multiple hours of heavy use.
Additionally, the Realme C25 is equipped with a competent MediaTek Helio G70 chip, which debuted on last year’s Realme C3. The processor is paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, making it one of the most affordable devices in the Philippines offering 128GB of base storage.
Last, but not certainly not the least, the C25 boasts triple cameras at the back headlined by a 48-megapixel image sensor and secondary macro and mono sensors. The front-facing camera has a decent 8-megapixel sensor. The camera software includes several shooting modes and filters, which Realme says is designed to give as many users as possible a quality camera system for social media.
