2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent, premium, 'dreamy' new design, with high quality materials and top-notch build quality - the frosted glass at the back just adds a new dimension to not just the visual appeal but also the in-hand feel
  • The front has a smaller teardrop notch than the OnePlus 7
  • A bit smaller than the OnePlus 7 Pro and slightly easier to hold (it's still on the large side though on absolute scale, so if you don't like big phones, you might want to reconsider)
  • Basic water resistance (though it's not IP rated)
  • Snappy in-display fingerprint scanner
  • Gorgeous, super smooth 90Hz AMOLED display - along with the display on the OnePlus 7 Pro, this is one of the most amazing displays out there on any smartphone - you will enjoy how much zippier and smoother the phone feels scrolling through things like web pages and apps
  • Strong brightness and great sunlight legibility
  • This time it's also a flat screen without the curved edges of the OnePlus 7 Pro - while that makes it look perhaps less stunning, it's a more practical design from a usability point of view
  • OnePlus continues to have one of the most refined, butter-smooth, minimalistic (nearly stock), yet very useful Android skins, with some handy off-screen gestures, smart customization options, an excellent and improved 'Reading' mode, and Zen Mode to control your phone usage - the excellent software experience remains one of the primary reasons to consider a OnePlus phone
  • Breakneck speeds with the new Snapdragon 855 Plus (which is supposed to be about 15% faster than 855 with graphics), and fast UFS 3.0 storage
  • Playing graphic-intensive games is smooth, and the phone is lightning quick at launching and quitting apps, surfing the web and taking photos
  • Good, versatile, triple rear camera setup, almost identical to the OnePlus 7 Pro - the only significant difference is that the telephoto lens, while packing more pixels (12MP vs 8MP on the 7 Pro), lacks OIS, and has up only to 2x zoom (instead of 3x on the 7 Pro)
  • What that means is that picture & video quality is also very similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro - in daylight, the photos are clear, bright and vibrant with some very good HDR rendering - in low light too, the performance is more than decent, and the Night mode helps with that
  • The wide-angle camera takes bright and sharp landscape photos, and the pictures don't show much warping around the corners, as wide-angle cameras tend to do
  • The new macro mode is good too - allowing you to take pictures of objects closer and with much more in focus than before
  • Portrait shots are also great - the fallout between the foreground and background looks smooth and natural, and you can now take portrait photos with the wide-angle camera as well
  • The 16MP front camera is good too - again similar to the 16MP front camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro
  • Uses its earpiece as a speaker, which gives the OP7T an excellent stereo audio setup - it's even slightly louder than the 7 Pro - and one of the best stereo audio setups on a current smartphone
  • Good battery life with a 3800mAh battery, and a 1080p screen - you will comfortably get a day's use, even with the 90Hz display
  • Amazingly fast charging with the new Warp Charge 30T technology - it charges to 34% in 15 min, and 68% in 30 min
  • On the whole, the OnePlus 7T is an excellent, top-grade addition to OnePlus' tradition of providing top-grade flagship devices at surprisingly reasonable prices - arguably its best value device in recent times - it's again the new 'budget flagship' to beat - near perfect
  • Between this and the OnePlus 7 Pro, it will be mostly down to whether you value the curved screen and the pop-up selfie camera enough to pay the extra moolah - for most people, the OnePlus 7T will be the more sensible value choice
  • Premium, stylish glass-sandwich design - the two glass sheets joined by an anodized aluminum frame
  • The back has a nice gradient effect - there's a subtle "X" pattern if you shine a light at it
  • Cold glass, colder metal, all curved and melded into one another, the Realme X2 Pro feels great in hand
  • Excellent, fast in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock
  • Beautiful, large, bright, vibrant OLED display, with a cool 90Hz refresh rate - the best display panel you will get at this price point
  • The 90Hz refresh rate means everything feels super snappy on the phone - from UI animations, webpage scrolling, to games
  • The screen also delivers HDR10+ support and a bunch of colour modes too, as well as a dark mode to take advantage of the OLED’s inky blacks
  • ColorOS is now more streamlined (and less bloat-y) than before, and still packs a bunch of useful add-on features, like Game space
  • Top-end flagship performance with the Snapdragon 855+ beast at the core - the X2 Pro steamrolls through anything you throw at it, including high-end games
  • Gaming on the phone is especially a treat, also because of the 90Hz screen
  • Nice, versatile quad camera setup: 64MP primary + 13MP telephoto + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the 64MP camera can grab some great shots - detail is great and dynamic range is fair
  • Very good portrait mode
  • The ultra-wide, macro, and telephoto modes provide for some interesting framing options (though quality wise, they are not quite up there with the primary camera)
  • Very good video capture with impressive electronic image stabilisation from the main camera - comparable to much more expensive phones
  • Good selfie camera too - its 16MP resolution captures detailed shots, and it shoots at up to FullHD video
  • Overall, the camera setup on the X2 Pro is quite good for the price bracket, but it's not the best (that award would go to Redmi's K20 Pro)
  • Excellent Dolby tuned stereo speakers - they are both loud and hard to cover up - listening to music on the phone is a joy
  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - will give you up to 1.5 days of use with moderate usage
  • Includes crazy-fast 50W fast charging - the fastest in the industry till date - even beating top-end flagships like the Mate 30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (by a massive margin) - it goes flat to 100% in just 30 minutes!
  • The X2 Pro is a smashing entry by Realme in the flagship space - it's crazy good value for money, completely changes the affordable flagship landscape, and is a power user's dream - as long as you are ok with a not-the-best-at-this-price-range camera, it will be hard to do better than the X2 Pro
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The camera bump at the back may be an eyesore for some (it's subjective though)
  • It's a very competent camera setup for the price, but again it's not quite up to the level of the most expensive flagships like the Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Pixel 3 series, or the iPhone 11 series
  • No included earbuds or a 3.5mm headphone adapter
  • If you want to look at even lesser expensive budget flagships though, you do have some strong options now - the two best value ones would be the Asus 6Z, and the Redmi K20 Pro - though you will be missing out on the super smooth 90Hz display and the great software experience of OxygenOS
  • A bit beefy at 199g and 8.7mm thick
  • Like all glass backs, this one too is slippery and attracts fingerprints and smudges
  • It's still not as clean/simple as stock Android of course - very few custom skins are
  • Low light performance and the night mode aren't that great, with the lack of OIS
  • If you do want the best-camera-for-the-buck, or a notch-less screen however, consider the Xiaomi's Redmi K20 Pro - and if you are really keen on a clean, stock like Android experience, consider the OnePlus 7T (at a slightly higher price point)
