2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Looks elegant and understated while still being eye-catching - the back has a very subtle gradient design where you can see the thunderbolt symbol flashing off the phone
  • The dual hole-punch cutout at the front gives the phone a modern appearance
  • Fingerprint Sensor is embedded in the unlock button and it is insanely quick and a pleasure to use - face recognition continues to be quick too, and works equally well even in the dark
  • The back is Gorilla Glass 5, so scuff marks aren't really an issue
  • Good 6.6-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display - it gives off quite punchy, and vivid colours
  • The 90Hz refresh rate on the Realme 6 Pro makes for a smooth and seamless visual experience
  • Brightness levels are more than sufficient for outdoor use
  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also packed with features such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some more interesting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • Excellent performance for the price - the Snapdragon 720G is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking is handled superbly - gaming performance is nothing to scoff at, the phone handles heavy games like PUBG at the highest settings with ease
  • Good quad cameras for the price - there's a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • Pictures from the primary camera look pretty good with fairly good details and very good dynamic range
  • The HDR mode works quite well and retains the highlights of the picture and there is a good amount of detail in the shadow regions
  • Ultra-wide camera also works well, both indoors and during daylight (though, as expected, quality is not on par with the primary camera)
  • Photos captured by the telephoto camera are decent too - you can zoom upto 20X with a mix of optical and digital zoom
  • Portrait mode works well, even for objects, and the level of depth can be adjusted before you take a shot
  • In low light, the primary camera is pretty capable and manages a fair bit of detail with good colours and you can use the night mode with all cameras except the macro and it helps boost the brightness and detail in the shot
  • Very good dual selfie cameras, 16MP primary and 8MP Ultra-wide - the wide-angle camera is great for taking a group selfie and you can even shoot videos with it
  • Very good battery life with the 4300 mAh cell - the 6 Pro delivers a solid day and a half of battery life, even with heavy usage
  • The bundled 30W fast charger is very quick and manages to charge the battery from zero to about 90 percent in an hour
  • The Realme 6 Pro is a good overall package that offer almost everything that one would want from mid-range phone - it looks great, offers powerful performance, clicks stunning pictures in almost all lightning situations, and delivers long lasting battery life - the inclusion of wide-angle selfie camera and telephoto camera gives it an extra edge over the competition
  • Beautiful, attractive, premium glass design (Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back), with a modern gradient finish at the back - identical to the Realme XT
  • The phone is also marginally smaller than the Realme X and is lighter too at 183 grams, which gives it a very balanced in-hand feel
  • The glass on the back is of the glossy kind, but it barely registers any fingerprints or smudges and it isn’t very reflective
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor is snappy (the fastest in this price bracket), as is the facial recognition
  • Excellent 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080x2340) Super AMOLED display with a dewdrop notch - again same as as the Realme XT - it has vibrant colours, deep blacks, good sunlight legibility, and good viewing angles - one of the best displays of this price range
  • Also comes with Widevine L1 standard, which means videos on platforms like Netflix and Prime can be seen in crisp HD resolution
  • ColorOS is fairly streamlined, and packs fast animations that help the phone feel snappy - there are of course several add-on features too, compared to what you would get in stock Android
  • The UI also isn’t ad-strewn as recent Xiaomi phones have tended to be
  • Excellent, butter smooth performance backed by the powerful Snapdragon 730G (15% faster than the Snapdragon 730 in graphics performance), which makes the Realme X2 one of the best-performing phones in this price range, especially for gaming - even ahead of the Redmi K20 in benchmarks - the Realme X2 breezes through pretty much any task you throw at it and is also an excellent smartphone to game on - even heavy games like PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile run consistently smooth
  • Very good quad-camera setup at the rear - 64MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth sensor
  • The primary 64MP camera works (by default) on a 4-in-1 pixel binning technology that combines four 16MP shots to offer one bright and detailed photo
  • The primary camera capture some really attractive photos in daylight, offering good brightness and clarity - with HDR enabled, the camera offers a wide dynamic range
  • The ultra-wide-angle camera comes in handy if you want to capture a wider frame of view or want a different perspective on the subject (but there is some noise even in daylight conditions)
  • The camera also supports Nightscape (Night mode), which comes in handy in low-light conditions, and helps improve picture clarity
  • The Realme X2 also does a very good job when using Portrait mode - edge detection is excellent thanks to the dedicated 2-megapixel depth sensor and details are crisp
  • Good video recording quality - image quality is good, and there is also stabilisation at 1080p (but not at 4k) - video bokeh feature also works very well and it can maintain a very accurate edge detection with busier backgrounds (low light video recording could have been better though)
  • Very good selfies from the 32MP front camera - it captures very good portrait selfies with crisp edges and background properly blurred - there is also night mode for selfies and it works pretty well
  • Overall, Realme X2 has one of the best cameras under 20k category, arguably right behind the Redmi Note 8 Pro & Redmi K20
  • Good speaker - verbal audio sounds clear enough even in max volume, and the audio is loud enough for you to hear the phone ring from another room
  • Good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will get about 1.5 days of moderate use
  • There is super-fast, class-leading 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging support - you can charge up the Realme X2 from 0 to 100% in an hour with the supplied charger
  • Realme has yet again managed to craft an excellent package with the Realme X2, especially if you want to do heavy gaming - Realme’s strategy of bring high-end features like the 30W VOOC Charging & in-display fingerprint sensor to a mid-range phone makes the Realme X2 a very compelling phone to buy
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Realme 6 Pro is quite chunky at 8.9mm and a bit heavy at 202g
  • There are still a number of pre-loaded apps however (though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled)
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)
  • However, the Realme 6 Pro and the Realme X2 have very similar features, camera capabilities and performance, and the only really differentiating factors are their design and displays and if you would prefer an AMOLED panel and an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Realme X2 would be the one to pick
  • There is, as usual, some bloatware that comes pre-installed (but most of it can be uninstalled)
  • The macro lens is ordinary - you will be able to get really close to the subject, but detail levels in the images are low
  • Having said that, the competition is neck-to-neck - there is Redmi K20 which offers a full notch-less display, even more polished design and slightly better camera at a similar price (at the cost of slower 'fast' charging) - and if you are on a tight budget, the cheaper Redmi Note 8 Pro is also a very good option as long as you don’t care about the AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint sensor
