2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Stunning, unique design, carrying on the design language of the Realme 1 - the first thing you notice about this device is the back panel - it is made of fibreglass body with a Diamond-like finish at the back, which reflects light in attractive ways - continues to be one of the best-looking devices you will find in the budget segment
  • The rounded edges provide good grip
  • Now includes a fingerprint sensor, which was missing in the Realme 1
  • The back panel is prone to scratches and fingerprints (you will probably want to use the included case)


  • The display is now a slightly larger 'notch' panel - it provides an immersive experience, decent colours, and wide viewing angles
  • While the display is slightly larger, the resolution is actually a degrade over the Realme 1
  • At the same time, the display is also reflective and not the most bright, which means sunlight legibility is not the best


  • ColorOS UI adds some useful features like an AI board (which can be accessed by swiping left on the Home and shows stuff like steps count, photos, favourite contacts, travel tickets), smart driving mode, app cloning, privacy password, and tons of customisation options - though, having said that, it can get somewhat cluttered too in areas such as the Settings panel, and is not quite as simple as stock Android


  • While the phone works perfectly fine as a daily driver, it's performance is definitely not the best in class owing to its Snapdragon 450 internals


  • Decent dual-camera setup - does reasonably well in good lighting conditions (similar to the Realme 1) and can also additionally give some decent bokeh shots thanks to the secondary camera
  • Decent selfie camera too in daylight, again very similar in quality to the Realme 1 selfie camera


  • Excellent battery life - the combination of a 4230mAh battery, and AI battery management means that the phone can comfortably last the day even with heavy use - and go up to 2 days with light to moderate use
  • No fast charging support


  • On the whole, the Realme 2 is another very good phone in the Realme series, with a beautiful design, and is essentially an alternative to the Realme 1 (as opposed to a successor) - it gains over the Realme 1 in terms of a slightly larger 'notch' display with Gorilla Glass protection, and better battery life - and lags behind it in terms of display resolution, and speed/performance - which one you prefer might be down to what you value more
