Realme X2 Pro Performance and Battery Life
We do not have any complaints regarding the daily usage of Reality X2 Pro. There was no problem in reading on the display in sunlight and the sound comes from the speakers too. We did not face any problem with the call quality as well. Fingerprint sensor and face recognition also work properly.
You can also use Always-on-display mode but usage is limited as it only shows notifications from certain default apps. On general usage, the phone remains cool but during gaming and heavy camera usage, the side and back panels get a bit hot.
The sound comes from the stereo speakers given in Realme X2 Pro. The speaker at the bottom of the phone delivers loud sounds, full-HD and high-resolution videos are sharp, and the color saturation is good.
ColorOS has a video enhancer called ‘OSIE Vision’, which boosts the brightness and contrast to make the video look a bit vivid. This is functional in Reality X2 Pro and it can be enabled for apps like MXPlayer, TikTok and Amazon Prime Video.

Realme X2 Pro cameras
Like Realme XT, there will be a 64-megapixel camera sensor in the back of Reality X2 Pro, its aperture is F / 1.8, but its other sensors are different. Apart from this, 13-megapixel telephoto camera sensor, 8-megapixel wide-angle camera sensor with 115-degree field-of-view will be available, its aperture is F / 2.2. Along with, a depth sensor of 2 megapixels has been given. Neither camera has optical stabilization.
With ColorOS 6.1, some new features will be available in the camera app. Nightscape now works for the selfie camera, the level of background blur can be adjusted in portrait mode and video can also be shot with the wide-angle camera. Realme has also added Ultra Steady shooting mode to the phone.
The primary camera sensor captures 16-megapixel oversampled images by default. In enough light, the detail in our sample was captured correctly. Colors come vivid and HDR also balances the exposure of light and the dark area properly. If you want, you can also shoot at 64 megapixel resolution. Portrait mode works with perfect edge detection.
Telephoto camera captures details and colors accurately in daylight. The 5x Hybrid Zoom captures details well in sufficient light. The wide-angle camera sensor is used to take ultra macro pictures. Image quality is good if there is enough light around you.
Photos taken with the primary camera sensor in low light were good. The details were captured well in the picture and the noise was also under control. The wide-angle camera felt a bit weak in low-light shots due to the aperture F/2.2. You can also use Nightscape for this sensor. The 16-megapixel selfie camera didn’t look very impressive.
HDR is also not handled effectively. Switching to portrait mode, the camera saved 8-megapixel images but edge detection wasn’t perfect. Details didn’t come out well in low-light, but the new Nightscape mode helps in fixing color accuracy and light metering.
Due to the powerful processor, the Realme X2 Pro smartphone is capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps. Video quality was good in daylight and image stabilization also worked well. The details came right in the video captured using the wide-angle camera.
Slow-motion video is available at 480 frames per second and 960fps in addition to 240fps. High frame-rate video is recorded at 720p, so image quality was pretty average. Talking about video recording in low light, Realme X2 Pro needs a lot of improvement. Whether 1080p or 4K.
Realme X2 Pro priced at Rs 29,999 is a good phone. You will get many features of OnePlus 7T in this phone at an affordable price except for the leaner software. This smartphone of Realme brand also has many drawbacks. The phone gets hot on heavy games and more camera usage.
