Great for the price
Bought for $119 on sale at JB Hifi.
I'm giving this review as a lower priced phone, so there's no point mentioning the fact that it doesn't have high end features.
It still ticks lots of boxes for the price:
6.5 inch screen
Rear fingerprint scanner
Good battery life...
Purchased in June 2021 at JB Hi-Fi for $119.00.
One of the worst in phones ever l want a replacement it doesn't type what you crappy forever back spacing seriously thought this was the phone think it again beware
Purchased in February 2021 at Woolworths for $200.00.
Very happy with this phone
I have found this phone easy to use and very good value. I refuse to pay a lot for phones and this Realme 3 has proved this is a good strategy. Ask good as phones 4 times the price.
Purchased in April 2021 for $240.00.
Very good for the price. Only down side is camera. Screen resolution is passable. Performance is snappy, some occasional lags bit nothing that causes experience to be unpleasant. Highly recommended.
It's my first touch phone so still trying to work out how to drive it,
It's new to me coming from an old flip phone so have been assured that I will soon understand it, although in my case, it,d be handy to have printed instructions with it but will soon get the hang of it (if I don,t run out of friends trying to show me
I Love ❤️ My C3 Realme Mobie.
I've just got 1 thing that really annoys me to the T-ski, when I'm texting some letters appear that don't form a word or random letters & then I've gotta delete them & it might do it again & you know when you're in ya zone-ski & this crap happens boys & girls, say no more, fix it please & my blood pressure can get back to normal.ha,ha.
Purchased in October 2020 at Grand Plaza Browns plains Qld for $299.00.
Great phone, great price, great features
Had the C3 for a month now, and i'm impressed.
It's fast and pretty much bloatware free. A few apps to remove and it's pretty clean.
All cameras work great. Can't find settings to change pixel size of images taken, but they're good quality anyway.
Good build quality. It feels solid. Color blue and red (we bought 2) are very stunning.
All the features of the competition at a quarter the price.
Good value & stylish phone
I love this new phone. Upgraded from an old Samsung S5.
It's very sleek and fast. Not too much bloatware either. Easy to cleanup.
Plenty of onboard memory, plus a card slot makes storage unlimited.
The cameras are okay. I havent found where to change the resolution of saved images as yet.
Battery has lasted 3 days so far from full charge.
I think it's the best value for money ever when comparing other brands.
Good all rounder
Great battery life, good cameras, but works. Love the finger print feature to unlock, and the additional head phones I purchased separately are the best micro earphones I have experienced.
it took me months to change over from my oppo. my grandson did it for me. i am totally sick of all the apps that pop up. i have lost my camera icon which used to show on the front screen. i now have to go a round about way to find my camera. emailed this outfit but no reply so i guess their customer service is pretty much zero. i use it for the usual things and i must say it takes a great photo. i am an older age group so just need a basic phone with a few bells and whistles. overall it is okay but not my old oppo.
Purchased in November 2020 for $268.00.
Good value for money
Overall its an excellent phone and represents great value for money. I have noticed that the price varies greatly. Shop around! I paid $260.
I have one complaint regarding the very difficult to use and see Navigation Bar situated at bottom of screen. When using the phone in DARK mode, under certain lighting conditions the navigation bar is invisible. I've looked everywhere but cannot find a way to brighten up the NAV bar. this is a design flaw the only one that I could find I'm hoping developers will upgrade the phone in the near future.
Purchased in December 2020 for $260.00.
Good value for money
Excellent phone in all respects except one.
The Navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen actually form a part of the main screen they are not independent.
The problem is that under diminished light you cannot SEE the buttons to press them.
These buttons need to be lit up brightly all the time either that or have a control somewhere to control the brightness of the nav buttons. Also the nav buttons dissapear when not in use and you have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to view them. Depending on the App you are usine this does not always work.
These two issues are a total pain and make using the phone unnecessarily ackward to use.
Honestly, had I known of this before I would have considered another phone.
Simple to Use & has an awesome camera. I’m very happy that with it that I’m Thinking of getting my partner one too. Price is very affordable & does everything my iPhone did if bot better.
Exactly what I expected, a great performing phone at very reasonable price. This is my second Realme phone. I have the XT which I am also very pleased with. Happy to recommend phone and support from Realme.
Easy to use
Not a bad phone but there's alot of dead pixels on the screen apart from that it's a nice phone easy to use great value for money cheap phone for price
Purchased in July 2020 at Bigw for $199.00.
