RealMe recently launched RealMe 2 Pro in Global Market and believe it or not this is the best smartphone available right now under 20K price segment, so let’s take a closer look.
Update 20th July 2020: This Review was written in 2018, so if you want to buy a new smartphone under 20k in India then you can go with POCO X2, POCO M2 Pro, RealMe 6 Pro, Motorola One Fusion Plus. It’s better to skip RealMe 2 Po in 2020.
Display (RealMe 2 Pro)
The phone has 6.30 inch Full HD+ IPS display with the resolution of 1080*2340 pixels. And yes the smartphone features a Display water drop and because of that smartphone looks great and you get some extra space too.
And yes you can see the screen under the sunlight, so yes you can use RealMe 2 Pro under the direct sunlight, for the protection realme has used Gorilla Glass 3.
If you want a rating then we will give you 10 out of 9.0 (10/9.0)
The smartphone feels solid in heads but you can’t ignore that this RealMe 2 Pro has Plastic body, but a part of that device feels great in head and yes Plastic body looks like Glass body and it’s all because of RealMe used some kind of transparent plastic panel on the backside.
When you hold RealMe 2 Pro in your head you can’t tell that RealMe used Plastic panel. And for Build Quality, we give 10 out of 7 and it’s because of the Plastic panel.
Hardware & Software
The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip. In day to day use, the device performs great.
Talking about Software, the RealMe 2 Pro runs on Color OS 5.0 based on Android 8.1 (Oreo) and yes RealMe did optimize Color OS well, but the matter fact is not most of the people like Color OS and yes we can’t do anything for this because of RealMe is Sub-Brand of OPPO and we all know that OPPO use Color OS, So for now, we will see this ColorOS in every new RealMe smartphone
For the hardware, we will give 10 out of 9.5 and for the Software, we will give 10 out of 8.0
If you ask me what is the best part of RealMe 2 Pro? .Then I have only one answer and its gonna be Camera
The smartphone has dual 16 megapixels + 2 Megapixel rear-facing camera setup, and I must say that this device has one of the best camera quality in this price range. On the front side, it has 16 Megapixel selfie camera setup, so yes I gonna say same here that both rear and the selfie camera is great at all the department
So yes if you are planning to buy a smartphone under 20k and looking for the camera-centric phone then don’t think too much and purchase this device right now. we added some camera sample down below
For the Camera department, we will give 10 out of 9.5
The smartphone carries 3500 mAh battery and it does not have fast charging support, a part of that battery is good in this device and it will last full working day. For battery, we will give 10 out of 7.5
