Realme C51 Advantages
Realme C51 comes with a better and more upgraded design. Some of you may like Xiaomi’s old-school nostalgic look and design is more of a personal choice. But Realme has put more concentration into providing something new and trendy so, they deserve recognition for it. The phone has a 90Hz refresh rate with a slightly more peak brightness whereas Xiaomi is offering a traditional 60Hz refresh rate.
You are getting a much faster 33W charger which beats Redmi 12C’s slower 10W charger big time. There is also up-to-date Android 13 in Realme C51 and Xiaomi remains behind with its Android 12 in terms of software upgrade. Apart from that, there is a more stylish side-mounted fingerprint sensor compared to Redmi 12C’s back-mounted one.
Xiaomi Redmi 12C Advantages
Xiaomi is offering a slightly better camera especially, since the front one has Full HD video recording compared to Realme’s HD recording. But also in terms of overall picture quality, we put Xiaomi slightly ahead.
Xiaomi has a much better gaming performance with a Helio G85 chipset and 6 GB RAM. Xiaomi is almost twice ahead in terms of performance with its chipset and bigger RAM. The faster UFS 2.2 storage adds a further boost to its performance. It is also offering double the storage which is 128 GB.
This is a difficult choice to peak a winner here. Redmi 12C of Xiaomi is slightly ahead when it comes to the camera and much ahead in terms of performance.
The Realme C51 on the other hand comes with a more trendy design, stylish side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a faster 90Hz display, a much faster 33W charger and an upgraded Android 13.
It’s a draw for us and you have to see which features are more important to you and then pick a phone based on that. However, if Xiaomi Redmi 12C gets an Android 13 update, the Redmi 12C wins for us.
