Which is a better buy between the Samsung Galaxy M10 and Realme C1?

For cheap phones, we’re not expecting gradient hue design but instead a polycarbonate structure for both. The difference will be upfront with the smaller notch for the Galaxy M10 but a better IPS LCD panel and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for the Realme C1.
Both are running on Android 8.1 Oreo but the Snapdragon 450 bests the Exynos 7870 in sheer performance. But in exchange for performance, you’re going to need to settle for the 2GB/16GB combo.

Camera-wise, it’s a toss-up between the two as they are using almost the same dual sensors on the back which happens to be the case for the selfie camera, too.

Fortunately, you won’t be living the dongle life with the presence of an audio jack but you are stuck with micro USB of yesteryear. And of course, the battery will go to the Realme C1 for its massive 4230mAh capacity.

With both the Galaxy M10 and Realme C1 priced at Php5,990, it looks like the Galaxy M10 wins this specs comparison thanks to its 3GB/32GB variant. But if you’re willing to live life on the edge, the Realme C1 will offer better raw performance and a bigger battery.
