2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Absolutely captivating, premium, glass-and-metal design - arguably the best design of 2019 so far - the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom is a sight to behold, both front and back
  • The absence of any notch and the thin bezels on all sides gives the phone a distinct visual identity
  • Excellent build quality
  • The matte texture on the back glass gives it a bit of a grip and saves it from smudges (and for more careful users, OPPO also has a protective case in the box)
  • Fast in-display fingerprint sensor
  • Excellent, captivating AMOLED screen - large and notch-free - watching content on the screen is a treat
  • Color OS 6 is now leaner, snappier, and more streamlined
  • There are of course many add-on features as well - including Game space (to optimize game performance), Kids space (parental controls), Smart driving (for safety on the road), and special gestures for activating Google Assistant or switching to split-screen mode
  • As you would expect from the flagship hardware underneath, the Reno 10x performs like a beast, matching other 2019 flagships beat for beat
  • The main highlights of the Reno 10x however are the impressive set of cameras, both front and back
  • The rear setup boasts of three cameras - 48MP primary camera + 8MP ultra-wide + 13MP telephoto, that's capable of an impressive 5x optical zoom, and up to 10x Hybrid zoom (similar to the current camera champ, Huawei P30 Pro)
  • The overall quality of images is excellent, and comparable to the best flagships - though not quite as good as the amazing P30 Pro - but that's in any case a very high benchmark
  • The other star of OPPO’s show is the front facing camera, with an intriguing shark fin pop-up design, that's sure to turn heads - the quality of the selfies is pretty good too
  • Video recording quality is very good too, and again comparable to other flagships
  • Excellent, class-leading battery life with a 4065mAH battery combined with some good software optimization - you will comfortably stretch it 2 days with light to moderate use
  • Excellent VOOC fast-charging, one of the best fast-charging technologies in the industry at present - you will get a full charge in about an hour
  • Overall, with the cracking set of cameras, a beautiful design, an excellent battery life, and a more streamlined software experience from ColorOS, Reno 10X feels like an extremely well executed flagship, and is more than worthy of consideration alongside other top Android flagships like the OnePlus 7 Pro (More fluid 90Hz screen, and has stereo speakers, but the cameras are not as versatile), Samsung Galaxy S10 (stereo speakers, headphone jack, IP-rated water protection, but the cameras are not as versatile, and the screen has a punch-hole), and the Huawei P30 Pro (better camera package, but not quite as good looking)
  • Premium, stylish glass-sandwich design - 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 cheapest phone with the flagship 855+ at present) - 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, and macro modes provide for some interesting framing options (though quality wise, they are not quite up there with the primary camera)
  • The telephoto lens is capable of 2X optical zoom, 5X hybrid zoom, and a total of 20X digital zoom - and, up to 5x zoom, the quality is pretty good, especially in good lighting conditions
  • 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 very good for the price bracket, but it's not the best (Redmi K20 Pro, and Oneplus 7T do slightly better)
  • 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]
  • On the heavy side, at 215g
  • Though it packs lesser bloatware than before, it's still not as neat and simple as stock Android or light skins such as 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)
