Realme x2 pro complete review: specs, design, price, camera, battery, etc




Realme used to be all about plastic, but with the realme X2, they started to step up their belt game and that's continued here with the x2 Pro. But before we begin on the complete review of this, take a look at realme x2 pro specification.

Realme x2 pro design



This is yet another glass sandwich design that we have with Gorilla Glass 5 to both sides. in between the two slabs of glasses and anodized aluminum frame. The glass a metal. it's all smooth and slippery. But that doesn't mean that x2 pro looks or feels any less premium than any other phone out there. in fact the back, that curved paddle the way it reflects light, the accent around the camera, it all looks pretty from purely a look standpoint. I feel really standard with the x2 pro.

Realme x2 pro thickness

 As for the weight, it weighs in at almost 200 grams and given the 8.7 mm thickness, the phone feels really enough. Not in one hand always, but it's not too bulky either. 


Realme x2 pro display

Now the highlight of the x2 Pro, it isn't something you'd notice immediately. it's actually this display. At first glance, it looks like pretty much a standard notch display. but this is a 90 Hertz AMOLED panel, a 6.5 inch full HD Plus AMOLED panel. the use of Super AMOLED here allows real me to go with an in-display fingerprint scanner and this scanner is among the fastest in-display scanners that we've tested. I have no issues with accuracy or never did I feel I was waiting for it to scan my fingerprint in my two weeks with this phone.

Now that 90 Hertz refresh rate of the display that's also something I really enjoyed using. I know the higher refresh rates are gonna become more common in 2020. Even phones like the kid 30 I'm bringing it to the mid-range. but  90 Hertz is awesome and I love the fact that this is AMOLED and it brings with it all of AMOLED's regular characteristics like infinite contrast, rich colors, excellent viewing angles and it's bright, bright enough to use outdoors in the day without any issues.

There is white wine l1 certification on both. So streaming videos and HD resolutions that was no issue and this video viewing experience, it's pretty good here on the X2 pro. not just because of the excellent display but also because of the audio. 

First, the Downloads firing speaker and about this tiny notch up top. there's a slit that also doubles as a stereo speaker. The audio via these two combined it's quite loud and full and this led it's, of course, the year piece and taking calls with that, I have no issues. Cell reception call quality they were quite fine too.

Here in this launch is also the 16 megapixel f/2 camera. This helps with face unlock, which was pretty quick and as for selfies they were well detailed and the skin tones, they were natural. I really liked how good the dynamic range was here. Just look at the blue skies to the back, this is something that gets blown out with a lot of selfie cameras, not here not on the x2 Pro. 

Realme x2 pro audio quality

There is a headphone jack to the bottom and the audio output via these, that is also pretty good. now high refresh straight display isn't something you just used to watch videos. if that's all you're gonna do you're not utilizing it to its fullest. one of the areas where a high refresh rate display really enhances the experience is with gaming and for that we need strong internals and that's something really is delivered upon here.

Realme x2 pro storage

The realme x2 pro is powered by the Snapdragon 855 plus chip, Hong Kong's flagship chip. This is paired with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Remember, realme does sell a 64 GB version in China, which does use UFS 2.1, but that's not available in India. so all variants being sold in India and the faster UFS 3.0 storage. 

The quick storage sure means that even with other tasks like opening in one app after another or jumping back and forth it's all pretty fast and snappy. The combination of the high refresh rate, the flagship chip, super-fast storage, and high-capacity ram makes for a really snappy user experience. this is further complemented by a well-optimized user interface. 

The real me x2 Pro is running on android 9 pie with color OS 6.1 on top. Color OS 7 should be coming out soon. But, we already have some nice little features like a system-wide dark mode that's pretty neat. Gestures that are useful and intuitive and so on. So like I said the software here on the realme x2 Pro it complements the strong hardware, but as all this comes at the cost of battery life.

Realme x2 pro battery

The realme x2 pro has a 4000 mAh battery inside and this one lasts all day on a single charge with moderate usage. you can drain it if you want to. Of course heavy gaming or GPS use can kill it but on most of my days I ended up getting through an entire day with not reduce.

But here's the thing, realme is not really using a 4000 mAh battery here on the realme x2 Pro. Yes, you heard me right, so are they lying! Not really, they have two 2000 mAh batteries inside. Well, the reason they are doing that is because they let there, I mean, that lets them charge both batteries simultaneously and basically achieve an effect of 50 watts at speed. meaning we can go from 0 to 100 in 31 minutes flat. that's just nuts, alright. so even if you do end up running out of juice, a quick 10-minute top-up should get you from zero to 43% and we did test it out.

Now one con with this 50-watt charger, this charging technology is that, super hoop its proprietary tech. Meaning you need a real nice charger to make this happen. But to tackle that real me has also provided support for USB power delivery and adding water to a charge. So even with a regular quick charge adapter which is easier you find, more commonly found the x2 pro should still, charge reasonably fast.

Realme x2 pro camera specs

Talking about x2 pro camera, first we have the 64 MP primary camera. That's the Samsung GW1 sensor it's paired with the F /1.8 lens. Realme x2 pro shoots bright and rich shots images come out looking great the dynamic range is pretty good too.

Just look at the blue skies, the ample detail in the shadows at one time. we also have a new super night view 2.0-night mode. this with that F 1.8 aperture lens and the large pixel size. thanks to the phobar one-pixel pinning here. means the primary sensor is able to let a lot more light in and capture impressive images like this in dem conditions. the colors they look natural and this new nightscape performs well.

Next up, we have the 13 megapixel telephoto sensor. it can do 2 X optical 5 X hybrid and 20 X digital zoom and I know really connect also 20 X hybrid but then that's a little misleading. it is you know, it's 5X hybrid generally. they could call it 20x hybrid because it's not entirely digital. It's still a mix of optical plus digital. technically hybrid but before this phone which really use the term hybrid for lossless zoom. Realme is not calling it hybrid lossless. so you can, but anyway. That's all marketing speak let's just forget the 20x here.


I kind of like what real me is done with the optics. I want to detail that real me has been able to get out of that 5x hybrid is quite impressive. Again forget the 20x. 

The third camera is an 8 MP with an F 2.0 ultra-wide lens. The field of view is 117 degrees. The pictures here a reasonably sharp. the dynamic range is okay-ish. realme is also enabled super macro shots like these via this sensor. 

The final camera is a 2 megapixel depth sensor that's used for depth deduction and I'm not sure why this needs to be there. because with a 2 X optical zoom as we've seen with Xiaomi implementations and so on that could have kind of subbed in for this. but hey it's there it's reduction is on point so can't really complain.

Really also lets us control the background bokeh here. The rear camera portrait have been excellent since these pictures are being taken by the 64 MP camera. After all the primary SSL pride gw1. I also liked how we have an option to shoot manual with all three sensors the areal means full-fledged pro mode.

When it comes to videos, we have support for up to 4k, 60fps video recording. Well, the footage here is sharp and vibrant with an excellent dynamic range. The lack of stabilization hurts it. For stabilization, we need to switch to 1080. Realme even offering UIS super steady option that uses addressing stabilization, software stabilization to eliminate shake. So overall an excellent camera package from realme actually, x2 pro is an excellent overall phone from realme.

Realme x2 pro price

The x2 pro delivers on all fronts the bell the high refresh rate, display, the cameras, battery life, charging, it's all pretty good. and the cost of the two variants of realme x2 pro is really nice. The price of the 8 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage, variant is 29,898 rupees and the 12 GB RAM/ 256 GB storage is 33,999 rupees. Now for this price the x2 Pro is an amazing value. 

I mean yes, the K 20 pro is cheaper. The x2 pro, it does offer quite a few things at this price that the competition doesn't. like that 90 Hertz display the 50 watts charging those cameras and so on and if they are important to you, I highly suggest that you pick the realme x2 pro up. It's one hell of a phone.

Now with that, we get at the end of the realme x2 pro review on specs, display, camera, storage, etc, what do you think about the x2 Pro? love it hate it! feel something else is better. let us know in the comments below.
