Aldi cell phone for 79 euros: hot or junk?

As of next week, Aldi will again have a cell phone on offer. The price sounds tempting at 79.99 euros, especially since there is also a starter set from Aldi Talk with 10 euros credit. We'll reveal whether it's really worth buying.

Aldi offers entry-level smartphone Realme C11 for 79.99 euros

For many people, the name "Aldi" is synonymous with low prices. So if the discounter includes a smartphone in its range, you can expect that you won't have to pay the moon prices of current flagship models. With a price of 79.99 euros (see Aldi Süd), the Realme C11 fulfills this expectation. It will be available from Aldi Süd from November 25th . But what about the features of the Aldi cell phone?

There, buyers have to make some compromises, as a look at the key technical data shows:

6.5-inch display (1,600 x 720 pixels) Unisoc processor (eight cores, maximum 1.6 GHz) 2 GB RAM 32 GB memory (expandable) 8 MP main camera 5 MP front camera 5,000 mAh battery Android 11

This places the Aldi cell phone at the lower end of the performance spectrum . More than the simplest tasks (WhatsApp, surfing or telephony) shouldn't be possible with the Realme C11. At least the device should have a good battery life due to the combination of a large battery and low-end hardware.

Important to know : The Aldi offer is apparently the Realme C11 in the 2021 version. There is also a technically slightly better version of the Realme cell phone from the previous year.

A lot is known about Aldi. But in the video we reveal lesser-known facts:

As a second mobile phone or for smartphone newcomers

So who is the Realme C11 for? Around 80 euros is not a lot of money and much cheaper than mid-range or upper-class smartphones. There is also a starter set from Aldi Talk with a starting credit of 10 euros. However, the meager equipment cannot be ignored.

The Aldi cell phone is therefore only recommended as a second cell phone or for absolute smartphone newcomers, for example for retirees.
