Why is realme C15 is Better than Infinix S5?

In terms of hands-on user experience, both phones are easy to use; however, Infinix S5 has a slightly bigger screen (6.6-inch) and weighs a bit less. Nonetheless, here is why realme C15 still makes a better choice:

  • It comes with 1.5x more battery power. Realme C15 has a battery capacity of 6000mAh while Infinix S5 has a 4000mAh battery.
  • Regarding the two phones’ pixel density, realme C15 has a 1.5% higher pixel density standing at 270ppi. Infinix S5 comes with 266ppi, which means that the picture quality in realme is sharper and clearer improving the quality of your viewing experience.
  • With 8 x 2.3GHz (MediaTek Helio G35), realme C15’s CPU speed is way better than Infinix S5 which is equipped with 4 x 2.3 & 4 x 1.65GHz (MediaTek Helio P22). It is, therefore, factual to state that realme C15 has a CPU speed that is 16.46% faster.
  • Realme C15 comes with Quad Camera (13MP & 8MP & 2MP and 2MP), which has 8.7% more pixels than Infinix’s 16 & 5 & 2MP. The megapixels of a camera determines the resolution of images taken by a phone. A higher count means the camera is capable of capturing more details, and here, realme C15 wins.
  • realme C15 comes with a branded damage-resistant glass – Corning Gorilla Glass – while Infinix does not.
  • It supports fast charging.
  • Has 1 more microphone.

While both realme C15 and Infinix S5 can record videos at 30fps, realme packs another feature in its camera system. It has a wide aperture, which captures more light that enables you to avoid blurs by enabling faster shutter speeds. This sensor also provides a shallow depth of field giving you the prowess of blurring backgrounds as you take pictures.

Where the realme C15 ultimately remains undisputed is the battery performance. It has a massive 6000mAh battery indicating a longer life and a fast charge of 18W! With this kind of power, you can carry out a ton of activities without ever worrying about your battery running flat.
