RealMe is owned by the giant BBK Electronics which also owns brands like Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus. RealMe as been in the Indian market for quite a year now and has released an array of phones. Their current portfolio in the Indian Smartphone market has about 10+ smartphones. Their upcoming model is the RealMe X2 Pro – the flagship killer – as most of them call it. Let’s first look into the tech specs of RealMe X2 Pro.

The Good of RealMe X2 Pro

One thing that all of us would agree that the RealMe X2 Pro is a Flagship killer when it comes to the features. The smart phone is packed with the beefiest technology available today. So what’s the good thing about RealMe x2 Pro – Pros of RealMe x2 Pro

  • Latest Chip set – Comes with the latest Snapdragon 855+ chip set. It is based on a 7nm design which means it packs in more power while consuming less battery.
  • Quad Camera setup – the entire camera setup looks great on paper. The provision of the ultra wide and telephoto along with a depth sensor is what any amateur photographer needs.
  • 90Hz Screen – Few months back it was only OnePlus 7 Pro that boasted the 90Hz screen, now even the RealMe X2 Pro comes with it. The fluid display will make everything seem must crispier and faster.
  • 50W SuperVOOC Charger – this probably is the fastest charger in the market as of now. With 50W charging, the phone can charge itself in literally no time !

The bad of RealMe X2 Pro

Now, the smartphone looks really great on paper when compared to the best phones in the market. However, there are a few things that might create doubts for some.

  • Bloatware in Color OS – The biggest problem with RealMe phones is their OS. Whether you purchase their entry level phone or a flagship killer like this one. The OS comes with a lot of bloatware & ads which totally ruins the user experience. That for me is the biggest turn off for RealMe phones.
  • RealMe Brand – The RealMe X2 Pro will be available via special invite sale on Flipkart from November 26. The phone is priced at a good ₹34,000 for the 12GB/256GB variant. Now I don’t know how many people would be comfortable shelling out that much for a RealMe phone. People would instead pay that much and settle for a OnePlus 7T which commands a better brand loyalty in India.
