Every time we talk about smartphones, or indeed any gadgets, we must talk about battery. For what is a gadget that a user cannot comfortably make use of without power warnings all the time? Isn’t a piece of battery operated equipment that is low on battery as good as nothing? For me I start getting anxious the minute my phone hits the 50% battery mark. I live on phone and I’ve since come to accept that fact but then again that is where part my job is.
If a phone manufacturer is going to make a fantastic handset therefore, it better have a long lasting battery, and in keeping with the fast moving world, preferably be a fast charge too.
It is with this in mind that the world fastest-growing smartphone brand, realme, hit the Kenyan market with the realme C15 from its entry level C series category on 18th September as the first 6000mAh smartphone in the market with AI quad camera retailing under 20k.
The massive battery smartphone also features 18W quick charge which ensures that the phone charges faster within the shortest time possible cutting on time lost when charging an average phone. It can charge up to 25 percent which is about 1500mAh battery in 30 minutes, maintaining several hours running of the phone. Once fully charged it stays longer than an average smartphone giving the user the convenience and freedom of surfing and operating the phone without the worry of the phone running out of charge.
This phone is able to retain power for 57 days on standby. That’s almost 2 months! The battery is also able to last for 46 hours if one is continuously making calls. If one is a YouTuber or enjoys watching videos on YouTube, with realme C15, one can watch YouTube continuously for 28 hours without power running out.
At the time, the world of holding meetings has shifted to the use of mobile phones through Zoom and Webinars due to the pandemic. In light of this having a long-lasting battery to help you stick to your virtual meetings all day long is not just an added advantage but a need that you should strive to fulfil. This is something that’s right up my alley because I spend way too much time in virtual meetings.
Launching in the Kenyan market with a starting price of Kshs16,999 for 64GB and Kshs19,999 for the 128GB it is also equipped with the fast and trendsetting realme UI, which is specially designed for them.
For those who love documenting their memories through taking photos and recording videos, realme C15 has them covered with a 13MP quad-camera that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to bring out every minor detail object and event.The phone has an instant fingerprint sensor that cannot be compromised once incorporated. This gives your phone an extra security feature preventing others from accessing data and information on your phone without permission.
Hello gaming enthusiasts… the phone comes with an Helio G35 gaming processor whose main frequency reaches up to 2.3GHz which always works well for daily App operation or gaming that gives the phone a high performance during the game and cuts down on the possibilities of the phone slowing down or restarting. The mega battery is also very important for keeping the fun going when gaming.
