Additionally, you can always uninstall a few of the pre-installed programs. Unisoc Tiger T612 processor, Mali-G57 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage round out its powertrain. The conditions surrounding the use of this device provide for an enjoyable day. Opening programs and navigating between different applications seemed to be seamless.


I also tried using the realme C33 for gaming. Running ARPGs and racing games might put more stress on the system. If you must play graphically demanding games on this phone, I would still suggest using the lower graphic settings. The device can be used to play MOBA or FPS games, though.
