Design and Walk Around

The realme C67 design was inspired from nature, featuring two different colors - Sunny Oasis and Black Rock. Mine is in the Sunny Oasis color. The device's back panel is crafted from a three-color gradient coating process, which comprised of individual stripes that are visible from different angles depending on the light source.

In the center of the display, you'll find an 8MP hole-punch camera, while the earpiece is discreetly etched into the enclosure. The phone also comes with a pre-installed screen protector for added protection.

The realme C67 is equipped with a large 6.72-inch IPS display with FHD+ (1080 x 2400) resolution. With a screen-to-body ratio of 91.4%, a refresh rate of 90Hz, and a touch response rate of 180Hz, this phone promises a smooth and responsive display that's perfect for those who value a seamless user experience.

The IPS screen of the realme C67 produces good colors and decent viewing angles. The screen can get bright at 800 nits and can go up to 950 nits of peak brightness, but it could use a bit more boost for comfortable outdoor use.

realme C67 Multimedia

The stereo speakers on the realme C67 are decent and have the ability to produce loud sound, which is a positive aspect considering that most devices available in this price range have a single downward-firing loudspeaker. However, it is advised to use headphones or a Bluetooth-enabled external speaker to enjoy better quality audio.

Camera

Rear Camera

The highlight of the realme C67 is its camera system. It has a dual-camera system with a 108MP F1.8 primary camera and a Samsung HM6 sensor. The main 108MP camera is also paired with a 2MP F.2.4 lens that acts as a depth sensor to help with portrait shots.

realme C67 Rear Dual Camera System

The standard photo mode can capture 12MP shots and has up to 3x In-Sensor Zoom for lossless quality. The Portrait Mode can also take 3x Lossless Portrait photos with the same zoom feature.

The camera app has a dedicated "108MP Mode" for high-quality full 108MP resolution photos. It also includes previous-generation features such as Street Mode, Tilt-Shift, and Dual-View Video. Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) is integrated to help avoid blurs when capturing photos and videos.

Under bright lighting conditions, the rear cameras capture vibrant and accurate colors with crisp and sharp details. However, the dynamic range needs to be improved in some scenarios.

For indoor and low light, photos can be muddy in certain situations even with the Night Mode feature turned on, still, it is good enough and usable for casual social media postings.

Front Selfie Camera

The realme C67 is equipped with an 8MP front camera with an F2.1 aperture. It comes with realme’s usual camera UI features for taking selfies.

The front camera is capable of producing decent-quality photos, particularly in well-lit conditions. However, the background blurring for portrait selfies is not perfect, but it still manages to do a good job.

Video

For video, the realme C67 captures videos up to 1080p@30fps with its main and front-facing cameras. There is no 4K mode and 60fps shooting, but there is an always-on electronic image stabilization (EIS) called Ultra Steady.

The recorded video from the main camera produces good colors, contrast, and dynamic range.


realme UI U Edition, Apps, and Security

The realme C67 smartphone utilizes the latest version of the realme UI, which is based on Android 14 and specially designed for a seamless and optimized user experience on realme C Series devices. The UI is clean, easy to navigate, and pre-installed with Google's standard app suite and some unnecessary apps.

The realme C67 now features the latest Mini Capsule 2.0 with enhanced functions, including Event Reminders, Weather Notifications, and Music Playback Control with sound wave animation and swipe controls.

For security, the realme C67 comes equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button, as well as a facial recognition feature for device unlocking. The fingerprint sensor works quickly and accurately, but the face unlock feature may slow down in low-light situations.

Hardware and Performance

The realme C67 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 processor that is power-efficient. This processor is manufactured using a 6nm process and has four Cortex-A73 cores that can clock up to 2.8GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores that can clock up to 1.9GHz. It also comes with an Adreno 610 GPU.
