Realme X2 Pro review: this is the flagship killer of 2019, and OnePlus should be worried

OnePlus has historically been pumping smart phones from its first device, the OnePlus One, which deserves the nickname "flagship killer" when it arrived. This tradition continued with its successive devices for some years.

Xiaomi joined the race by launching the Little F1 (Review) and then him Redmi K20 Pro (Review). Now, it's Realme's turn to glory.

The Realme X2 Pro includes the most powerful hardware currently available for smart phones. Be it the chipset, the screen, the battery or the camera, the X2 Pro does it all but at a surprisingly lower price.

Developed by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, it supports up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The 64 GB variant comes with UFS 2.1 storage, while the 128 GB and 256 GB variants use UFS 3.0. Its 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display has a refresh rate of 90 Hz and is compatible with HDR10 +. Unlike its competitors, the X2 Pro has a cudruple camera system on the back consisting of a 64 MP Samsung GW1 primary sensor, a 13 MP telephoto camera, an 8 MP wide-angle sper camera and a sensor 2 MP deep For selfies, there is a 16 MP camera in the front. It includes a 4,000 mAh battery that supports SuperVOOC charging with the patented 50 W charger included. Supports fast charging up to 18 W in USB Power Delivery and Quick Charge 4.0.

The phone is packed with the best hardware for smart phones (including a 3.5mm headphone jack) that is almost similar to OnePlus 7T (Review) and the Asus ROG Phone II (Review). But does the phone really work as well as the competition? Let's talk about some of the aspects in detail.

Construction and design: thickness and a fingerprint magnet

Smart phones with 6-inch screens are becoming quite common in every budget segment now. And when packing more powerful hardware and camera arrays, they tend to be bulky. While OnePlus managed to keep the 7T form factor thin, that is not completely the case with the X2 Pro. The device is a bit thicker and you feel that there is a large slab in your pocket. Its form factor is not drastically different from 7T, but the metal frame and the back of the glass have sharper edges on the X2 Pro. Notice most of the device when you play for an hour or talk on the phone for a long time. However, the construction quality is excellent and Realme has not cut any corner in durability.

The small notch on the top is disturbingly similar to that of the OnePlus 7T. By keeping them side by side, it was difficult to tell the difference between the two. The X2 Pro comes with an on-screen fingerprint sensor that is as fast as the OnePlus, but Realme says it is an updated sensor, so it should be faster. It is difficult to notice the speed difference with the naked eye. The back panel looks impressive, but it is a fingerprint magnet.

Performance: powerful hardware, strong stereo speakers

Smart phones that use Qualcomm flagship chipsets rarely show performance issues. It was the same in the Realme X2 Pro and found no problem. Switching from one application to another was very easy, so it was scrolling through several applications, including websites. Zoom in and out of images does not show any delay.
