Design & Build Quality

Firstly, talking about the realme 2 pro from backside, it is quite a looker as the realme 2 smartphone. Here, the Pro version doesn’t come with a ‘chiselled’ look and has got minimum number of bezels all round the corners.

Perhaps, the realme 2 pro is one of the best looking phones in the mid-range price segment. Moving ahead, the phone comes with the latest dew-drop notch which looks stunning & amazing in every aspect.

Thinking about holding the phone in your hands? Well, you will give no complain as the realme 2 pro fits quite perfectly in the hands.

Now, moving onto the front section, the realme 2 pro comes with a massive 6.3-inch Full HD+ Display. Hence, with such a huge display, you can relatively play games and watch videos quite efficiently.

In addition, the brightness, color section all looks good and I saw no color distortion issue in any case.

For extra durability, the panel comes with a Gorilla Glass protection but the company hasn’t yet specified its version.

Further, in terms of the back panel design, although it is made of plastic, it feels quite premium, durable and can withstand several drop tests.

Realme 2 Pro Review: Specifications & Hardware Section

In terms of the first initial specifications, the realme 2 pro comes with a 1080 x 2340 pixels display with an aspect ratio of 19:9.

In addition, the phone comes with a massive 90.8 percent screen to body ration which is indeed a blessing in its own.

What Processor Comes With the Realme 2 Pro?

Talking about the processor, the realme 2 pro comes with the all-new Snapdragon 660 chipset which is amazing for gamers. Here, the chipset has got built-in AI functionality which further enhances the whole user experience.

Moving ahead in this realme 2 pro review, this phone is clocked at 2.2 GHz and is made on a 14nm manufacturing technology.

Realme 2 Pro Review: What is the Type of GPU Used?

Well, the realme 2 pro comes with an Adreno 512 GPU which is currently, the fastest GPU’s you can ever get on a mid-range smartphone.

Realme 2 Pro Review: Different Variants Offered By Realme

Right here in the mid-range section, realme has given tons of options to their users. Here the different type of variants in which the realme 2 pro will come are:

  • 4GB RAM & 64GB Internal
  • 6GB RAM & 64GB Internal
  • 8GB RAM & 128GB Internal

Although, you will get similar specifications in all the three variants, still, the 8GB one has its own plus points.

With the 8GB Model, you will get the UFS 2.1 flash memory which will certainly make your phone file operations, a lot quicker.

Realme 2 Pro Review: Software Section

Being a sub-brand of Oppo, the realme 2 pro comes with a similar Color OS 5.1 as we see in Oppo Smartphones.

In addition, the phone will come with the latest Android 8.1 whereas, an upgrade of the Android 9.0 is said to arrive sooner.

From my personal experience, the UI is pretty much fluid and I saw no lags whatsoever.

However, when it comes to opening and closing apps, a slight delay can be seen. And, I hope that the company fixes this issue much sooner by giving OTA Updates.

Realme 2 Pro Review: Camera Section

Just like any mid-range smartphone, the realme 2 pro also gets a dual camera setup. Where the rear end consists of a 16-megapixel followed by a 2-megapixel sensor.

Further, the realme 2 pro packs in Sony IMX398 image sensor which supports dual autofocus which can give efficient focusing on any stuff.

In addition, the 6P lens placed on the primary camera comes with an aperture of f/1.7 which does Electronic Image Stabilization.

Further, coming down towards the secondary camera, it is of 2-megapixel depth sensor which will come handy to click images in portrait mode.

Moving on to the front side, the realme 2 pro packs a massive 16-megapixel camera which comes with AI Beautify feature.

Hence, I shot some samples and all of them looked pretty good in terms of color quality and saturation levels.

What about the Video Recording on Realme 2 Pro?

Well, in terms of the video playback and recording section, there is pretty much good news for realme 2 pro users.

Here, the phone is capable to record 4K Videos at the highest settings.

Hence, you can capture every minute detailing either on 60FPS and the video playback is also smooth and flawless.

Further, coming down to the front camera, it is even capable of recording full HD videos which is yet another good thing.

Realme 2 Pro Review: Battery Section

For every power user, a powerful battery needs to be a necessity. Hence, the realme 2 pro comes with a 3500 mAh battery which is far more than decent.

Here, even with some hours of intense gaming and regular mobile works, you can get a full-day battery juice with whole ease and comfort.

As per my testing, the phone gave a screen-on Time which is far more than average.

Hence, overall a decent size battery and a must go phone for every power to moderate usage users.

Realme 2 Pro Price in India: Should you go for this Smartphone?

When realme launched their first Android smartphone, the realme 1, the phone was a decent one but really lacked in some most essential features.

After which the realme 2 pro arrived and had the all-wanted fingerprint sensor and a dual camera setup.

However, this time, the cards have changed and realme 2 pro is obviously the true successor of realme 1.
