First, I was genuinely excited about this phone because for the first time in a long time I’m working with a totally new brand. I have tonnes of reviews on this site but the biggest percentage of them are upgrades and next series of something I have already done before. Realme is a new entrant into the Kenyan market and so not only was I unboxing a shiny new thing, but one that I have not worked on before.
A shiny new gadget is not all that was exciting me. I’m not that fickle :-D. I’m also really exited by the fact that this phone is really a beauty to look at. My unit came in mint green and realme has a unique back cover, camera positioning and branding. First impressions upon unboxing is that it is a well thought out design and a conversation starter.
For this article I will not be saying a whole lot because I’m still using the phone and I intend to do a comprehensive review in a bit where we talk about the features more in-depth. For now, we unbox this beauty. A what’s in the box kinda thing. I’m working from outside Nairobi at the moment and the agency was kind enough to courier the phone to my local G4S office.
I’ve started using the phone here and there and the first thing I did was to go on a walk about to a nearby hotel to take some photos.
Realme C11 is retailing for Ksh.9,999/-. It is therefore pretty much an entry level phone with a friendly price and so to be fair, expectations should be kept at a certain level.
See you in the next article where I post which is a purely photographic journey of the phone.
Meanwhile, some love from my social media people…
