The Color OS gives a closer look to the iOS while the Experience UI is near to the Android stock. Both run smoothly.

Performance wise, the Oppo handset is noticeably better. Empowered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, the Realme C1 (2019) gets inside Octa-core processor of 1.8GHz clock rate and Adreno 506 GPU.

The Realme microSD card slot allows you to memory expansion up to 256GB. Despite the fact, the Samsung M10 microSD card slot offers you to expand it up to 512GB.

13MP Vs 13MP (Dual Camera Photography)

Realme C1 (2019) sports 13MP plus 2MP Rear Cameras; the first one is a wide-angle lens having f/2.2 aperture and the secondary is a depth sensor having an f/2.4 aperture for details pictures. Besides this, the Galaxy M10 comes with 13MP plus 5MP Rear Cameras offering you f/1.9 wider aperture for the wide-angle regular lens and f/2.2 aperture for depth sensor.

The main Camera resolution (13MP) is the same for both, but the wider aperture of the Galaxy M10 and higher 5MP depth sensor make the Samsung smartphone distinguish for photography against its competitor. The low-light shots are brilliant with M10 and you are getting excellent results and sharp performance. HDR mode creates attractive daylight photos.

Both the handsets have some AI nifty tricks to improve their camera productivity. Either it is Realme or Galaxy phone you can record Full HD videos at 30fps.

5MP Vs 5MP Selfie Camera

Samsung Galaxy M10 is undoubtedly offering nicer and finer selfies with its 5MP Camera of f/2.0 aperture; however, the Realme C1 2019 with a 5MP Front Camera of f/2.2 aperture captures beautiful and bright selfies, but not as that of the Samsung one. You can make FHD video calls with the M10 while the HD video calls with Realme device.

Both support equal HDR mode, but the software-aided Bokeh mode of Realme performs a little better.

4230mAh Vs 3400mAh Battery

If you are conscious about handset life, the Realme C1 (2019) is a right choice housing a Li-Ion 4230mAh non-removable battery offering two days of 3G talk time, and satisfactory video playback and web-browsing time. But if you talk about Galaxy M10 that packs in Li-Ion 3400mAh non-removable battery offers a single day of talk time on 3G and multimedia usage.

Unluckily, none of them support Fast Charging; therefore, both the smartphones take long to recharge 100% life.
