Unboxing the realme C65

The packaging for the realme C65 comes in the brand's signature yellow-colored box, as expected. The front of the box displays the branding and the 48-month Fluency Rating from TÜV Rheinland. The back portion contains important details such as the model number, IMEI number, serial number, color, and four key features of the realme C65.

Beneath the pack was the realme C65 smartphone, wrapped in white matte plastic. Below, I found the 45W SUPERVOOC charging adapter and a USB type-C to USB-A charging cable. Please note that the realme C65 does not come with headphones, so you will have to use your own.

Design and Walk Around

This certification ensures that the realme C65 will maintain its performance when properly cared for, ensuring a smooth user experience for at least four years, even as newer models enter the market.

Additionally, the realme C65 has been granted the TÜV Low Blue Light Certification after testing to determine its ability to reduce the amount of harmful blue light emitted through software solutions. Compared to other devices in its segment, the realme C65 emits lower levels of blue light, reducing the adverse effects of screen time and making it safer and more comfortable.

Real Essentials are the latest features from realme designed to optimize the user experience. These dedicated functions on the realme C65 are customized to enhance and streamline users' ability to maximize their device's capabilities.

The Real Essentials include the following features:
