On the outside, realme C3 and realme 5i look almost exactly the same, from the 6.5-inch screen to the beautiful, scratch and fingerprint-proof patterned back the company calls the “Sunrise Design”. If not for the cameras (the C3 three while the 5i has four), you could almost confuse one with the other.
Clearly the 5i has the upper hand when it comes to photography, but what else?
