This time the Realme comes with the semi-flagship model Realme x2 pro launched as the successor to the original Realme X2. This phone is indeed the best smartphone under Rs.30,000 currently in March 2020.
The review is based on complete personal use with all the [positive and negative points] as follows:-
The Realme X2 Pro features a refreshing design that differs from the recent glass-backed design trend plagued in certain aspects.
Yes, the Realme X2 also features the gradient coloured glass back, but subtle changes like the camera placement make the device much more pleasing to look at.
The Realme X2 has a vertical left centered camera placement whereas the Realme X2 Pro features a centrally tucked camera system, similar to the one found on the Redmi Note 8 Pro from Xiaomi.
The fit and finish of this mid-range Android smartphone are excellent for its price. The overall construction seems to be of good quality, which Realme phones are famed for, starting from the original Realme 1.
The Realme X2 Pro features a large 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels with a fluid 90 Hz refresh rate.
This display has a v-shaped notch design. The 3D curved bezels make the display blend with the chassis seamlessly.
The quality of this AMOLED display is excellent. With deep blacks and high contrast ratio, the visuals look stunning with this smartphone.
Processor and Performance
This mid-range Android smartphone packs the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor clocked at 2.9GHz.
With 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage, the performance is blazing fast and smooth.
Be it games or resource-hungry apps, the Realme X2 Pro cuts through them effortlessly. The only bug is their custom Color OS 6 on top of the latest android 10 which some people don’t seem to like. But in day to day use that will not come across much, as the Snapdragon 855+ is blazingly fast and capable more than enough to entertain you all day long.
The phone ran cool in general but the sides and back got quite warm when gaming and even with heavy camera usage. This was noticeable especially on hot days, but we did also feel it when testing the phone indoors, in an air-conditioned room.
The Realme X2 Pro has a quadruple rear camera setup mounted in the center vertically.
The primary sensor is a 64MP sensor with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor for photos with an enhanced field of view.
There is a 2MP macro sensor for close up shots and the regular 2MP depth-sensing unit for accurate bokeh shots.
The main sensor captures four images of 16MP each and stitches them together to deliver a crisp and clean final image output.
The macro shots from this unit deliver greatly detailed photos with excellent colour accuracy.
The front camera is a 16MP sensor with a 70-degree field of view to capture more subjects in the frame.
In real-life use, the camera is good enough to take good pictures and selfies but don’t expect flagship-level pictures as one plus 7t can definitely beat Realme X2 PRO easily.
What powers the Realme X2 Pro is 4000mAh Li-ion battery which lasts for a day and a half with moderate to heavy usage. This would dip when we were testing the camera heavily or playing a lot of games, and even then we got through a full day comfortably.
Realme has also included a VOOC enabled 50-watt fast charger in the box, which is really fast and can juice up the device 0 – 100 in less than 35 minutes and 0 – 60 within 15 minutes. The good news is that you’re not just limited to Realme’s proprietary charging standard, as the X2 Pro also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Power Delivery for relatively fast charging.
The Realme X2 Pro delivers one of the best premium semi-flagship smartphone ownership experiences under a budget of just Rs.29,999.
With an excellent screen and processor, this is one of the best devices you can grab at this price point.
