As compared to Redmi 6A which comes with a smaller 5.45-inch screen, Realme C1 sports a large 6.2-inch screen with 720 x 1520 pixels resolution. This makes it a better smartphone for multimedia consumption. Moreover, the 19:9 aspect ratio display that results in an impressive 81.2% screen-to-body ratio makes Realme C1 very compact and handy to use with one hand. Compared to Realme C1, the Redmi 6A comes with the dated 18:9 aspect ratio.
