Gadgetren – After the release of the C55 NFC a few months ago, the Indonesian kingdom has brought back an entry-level device dubbed the C53 NFC realm.
Although it looks very close from the numbering, the C53 NFC bullet and the C55 NFC bullet are actually different devices. Not only from the design, but also from the specifications and support that they both bring.
The two mobile phones manufactured by Realme have many similarities, but only in a few aspects. The Realme C53 NFC and Realme C55 NFC devices both pack a 5,000mAh battery backed by 33W SuperVOOC charging technology.
The front camera used by both has the same 8MP resolution. The realme C53 NFC and realme C55 NFC also seem to have agreed to use an IPS display with a Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) with support for a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz.
With a price difference of around IDR 400,000 where the C53 NFC bullet costs IDR 2,099,000 while the C55 NFC bullet costs IDR 2,499,000. Both also rely on 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The difference between the C53 NFC bullet and the C55 NFC bullet
The main difference between the two phones lies in the kitchen motive. While the C55 NFC realm was launched with the MediaTek Helio G88 chipset, the recently launched C53 NFC device was specifically based on the Unisoc T612.
The performance of these two chipsets is quite different where technically the Unisoc T612 can only be driven up to 1.8 GHz while the Helio G88 is up to 2.0 GHz. So it’s no surprise that the C53 NFC ball and the C55 NFC ball offer quite different usage experiences.
Not to mention, the system interface used by the two affordable devices is a bit different. realme C53 NFC specifically uses realme UI T Edition while realme C55 NFC uses realme UI 4.0.
The two system UIs created by this realm both work on Android 13. It’s just that the UI T Edition realm slips in a bit of polish so it can run more lightly in contrast to the much-refreshed UI 4.0 realm.
On the other hand, using a quite different chipset also affects many other aspects, such as connectivity. The Realme C53 NFC, for example, is forced to still use Bluetooth 5.0 even though the Realme C55 NFC already has Bluetooth 5.2.
The user experience offered by the two mobile phones will also be more different if we test the camera section. Technically, the 64MP lens used by the C55 NFC sphere can certainly produce higher resolution images than the 50MP sensor belonging to the C53 NFC sphere.
Based on the type of panel that has the same resolution and refresh rate, the displays of the two mobile phones are slightly different. Not only in the design of the camera hole but also in the size where the NFC C53 scope spans 6.74 inches while the NFC C55 scope is only 6.72 inches.
