The entry-level to get is?
Build/Design – The Galaxy J4+ has a smooth glossy glass-like back. The Realme C1 also has that type of material at the back. Both are mostly made out of plastic and a 2.5D glass screen. However, only the Realme C1 has the tougher Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for the screen.
Interestingly, the C1 is also the smaller smartphone despite having the bigger 6.2-inch screen compared with the 6-inch screen of the J4+. It is due to its smaller bezels and higher screen aspect ratio. It goes with a 19:9 screen and 88 percent of screen to body ratio.

On the other hand, the J4+ only has the Snapdragon 425 processor. It is an entry-level chip designed to run light tasks.
Both have 2GB RAM/16GB ROM. Both are also expandable with a dedicated microSD slot. The J4+ has a higher expandable storage up to 512GB. But who will buy a microSD card that is even more expensive than the phone?
The battery capacity of the Realme C1 is also way higher. It goes with a 4,230mAh battery versus the 3,300 of Samsung.
For selfies, both arrived with a 5MP sensor. But, only Realme has AI to ensure better looking selfies.
The Galaxy J4+ is a decent entry-level smartphone priced at PHP 6,990. It even has a stylish glossy back cover and a big 6-inch HD+ screen.
But, it is very clear in this comparison that the new Realme C1 is way ahead in terms of overall specs.
The amazing thing? The Realme C1 is even more affordable than the Galaxy J4+.
