The young brand realme continues to expand, releasing models that are different in cost and specificity. Today we’ll talk about the flagship X2 Pro: it is equipped with a top-end processor, a quad camera, stereo sound, a powerful battery and even NFC, and its price is quite affordable. Is there really a smartphone in front of us for all occasions?

Nice screen, neat appearance

Designers are in trend – the device looks attractive. The 6.5-inch thin-frame display occupies 91.7% of the front panel. On both sides, the model is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. And the Samsung Super AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels is responsible for the beauty and clarity of the image.

The maximum brightness of the screen is over 550 nits, so the contrast and expressiveness of black color at a height. Auto backlight behaves adequately in direct sunlight and in total darkness. Add a refresh rate of 90 Hz – this is still rarely seen.

The case is surrounded by a metal frame with a matte finish, so the X2 Pro is nice to hold in your hand. The side buttons are located on opposite sides, and at the bottom there is a Type-C connector, a microphone and 3.5 mm audio output.

Iron wherever

The manufacturer did not save on gigahertz: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, manufactured by the 7-nanometer process technology, is responsible for speed. The SoC configuration includes 8 Kryo cores with a frequency of up to 2.96 GHz. The processor works with the support of the Adreno 640, 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of internal memory. Such a powerful platform is saved from overheating by a liquid cooling system with a heat pipe.

Needless to say, the novelty pulls any entertainment at maximum settings? For example, World of Tanks: Blitz demonstrates stable 60 fps, shooters of the caliber PUBG or COD also keep at a comfortable frequency. In general, the model’s performance margin is several seasons ahead.

Sensations from games are enhanced by a vibrator driven by artificial intelligence – it adapts to the user’s actions and even changes the intensity of vibration depending on the type of weapon in the action movie. Another gaming bonus is the clear sound of stereo speakers. They have a large supply of volume, and at the maximum there are no wheezing. Although music lovers will still prefer headphones – Dolby Atmos with Hi-Res certification is just provided for wireless.

The Google Pay-enabled NFC module is responsible for contactless payments for goods and services. In general, the smartphone is equipped with a five plus. Yes, and is running the latest version of ColorOS 6.1 based on Android 9 Pie.

64 megapixel quad camera

On the back of the realme X2 Pro there are four cameras at once. The main module Samsung GW1 with aperture f / 1.8 due to the grouping of pixels takes 16-megapixel frames. The lens can also be manually switched to all 64 megapixels, but in this mode there will be neither HDR nor AI photo processing. Such permission will be needed unless for printing on large print or scaling of the composition.

There is also an 8 megapixel camera with a viewing angle of 115 degrees and a telephoto lens with a 13-megapixel matrix, equipped with a double optical and five-fold hybrid zoom. The fourth 2MP module helps blur the background.

It shoots realme X2 Pro very well: detailing is high, brightness and contrast are normal, and AI eliminates noise and selects automatic settings for various scenes. There is a night mode that combines several frames with a slow shutter speed, but it should be used only in complete darkness, otherwise there will be distortions in the textures.


Video with a frequency of 60 fps, the model shoots not only in Full HD, but also in 4K. It is possible to slow down the movie to 960 frames per second. Not every flagship can do this, not to mention simpler devices, thanks to Qualcomm’s advanced SoC.

Fastest charge

The 4000 mAh battery, the AMOLED screen and the optimized Qualcomm chipset allow the smartphone to save energy. The charge of realme X2 Pro is enough for 15 hours of watching HD-video and 6 hours of playing games. Continuous reading of electronic books will last up to 20 hours. At the same time, the battery replenishes the resource so quickly that it has practically no equal. Thanks to SuperVOOC technology (50 W), the smartphone charges in just 35 minutes from zero to 100%.
