Realme has made a strong market in the under 10k smartphone and is looking to capture the attention of users having a budget of 10k to 20k. With Realme 2 Pro, Realme certainly looks to heat up the competition with an awesome list of specs and a practical smartphone. Here we review the Realme 2 Pro which comes in 3 variants. Let us discuss the specifications and features this Realme 2 Pro offers which will be a Flipkart exclusive smartphone.
Realme 2 Pro comes with a 6.3-inch display having the Full HD Plus resolution with the Full-screen display. The display is perfectly bright and the brightness is well maintained in the outdoor conditions. Watching videos or movies on this smartphone is appealing and provides a good experience. On the front, we have a waterdrop or also known as the teardrop notch which makes the phone look amazing, which results in an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The earpiece is available just above the notch.
Realme has worked well on the designing on the smartphones and this one is no different, however, they have not replicated the diamond cut design which was features on Realme 1 and the Realme 2. So the Realme 2 pro comes with a polycarbonate body and a perfect glass type shiny finish which will be available in three colors Black Sea, Blue Ocean, and Ice Lake. The box also bundles a TPU(Transparent) case for the smartphone protection.
Coming to the performance of this smartphone which would surely invite a jaw drop reaction, the Realme 2 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset and the base variant has a 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. The smartphone scores around 1,33,000 on the Antutu Benchmark which clearly explains how powerful this smartphone is. In our usage of this phone as a primary phone, we played games, watched YouTube videos, listened to music and all other day to day usage like calling, messaging etc and we did not face any problem at all.
We also played heavy games like PUBG for instance and the phone was able to multitask and handle heavy stuff easily. The Realme 2 Pro comes with an inbuilt AI gaming accelerator which helps boosts the performance. Here you also get Dual sim slot and a dedicated SD card slot to expand the storage by 256 GB.
Finally on the camera side, Realme 2 Pro has left everyone stunned with a powerful dual camera set up at the back that does not disappoint you at all. On the specification side, the dual rear camera comes with a 16 MP f/1.7 aperture (Sony IMX 398) which is the primary sensor and a 2MP sensor which is the depth sensor and a LED flash. The camera clicks perfect images in both and low light conditions and we were really stunned by the beauty it delivers. The front camera is a 16MP sensor which comes with the AI beautify mode and recognizes the personal characteristics to give you the best photo. The rear camera takes excellent pictures and the front camera is not great as of now. We hope Realme fixes it with a software update.
Both the front and the rear camera on Realme 2 Pro can click portrait shot and the edge detection is perfect. The camera app comes with 5 Light mode namely the Film Light, Mono-Tone Light, Natural Light, Rim Light, Bi-Colour Light which captures and transforms the photos. The camera is also powered by AI that can recognize various scenes and modify the images to look based on contrast, colors and best exposures.
The Realme 2 Pro runs on Color OS 5.2 which is a custom skin based on the Android 8.1 and is the same as used on the Oppo branded smartphones. Here the experience is not the best as the UI is not very clean and there are some bloatware apps which is a compromise in this beautiful and perfect smartphone.
On the battery side, we have a 3500 mAh battery to power the smartphone, in our usage, the battery lasts justs above a day with medium type usage. The phone has a micro USB and does not bundle a fast charger. Also, there is no IP rating on this phone, so protect it from dust and water. For the unlocking of this smartphone, you get both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both are accurate and very very fast which unlock the smartphone in the blink of an eye.
The Realme 2 Pro has 3 variants which are priced as mentioned below.
|Variant (RAM - Internal Storage)||Pricing (in Rs)|
|4GB - 64 GB||13,999|
|6GB - 64 GB||15,999|
|8GB - 128GB||17,999|
To us, the pricing on this Realme 2 Pro looks super exciting, especially the limelight is 8 GB version smartphone has been launched under 20000 for the first time. Realme 2 Pro comes with a tagline of Max Power Max Style and it surely very well delivers on the same. Overall, with its brilliant specifications, features, the Realme 2 Pro is a midrange killer and certainly should be your top choice for a smartphone under 15000 to 20000.
