2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Elegant and understated design - the frosted glass back gives it a premium feel and the double punch hole in the front looks classy
  • Both the in-display fingerprint and face unlock work pretty fast
  • Large, vibrant and beautiful 6.4-inch sAMOLED panel - it's a treat to watch content and play games with the cool 90Hz refresh rate
  • 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, there is a dark mode as well to take advantage of the OLED’s inky blacks
  • Realme UI is one of the better takes on a custom OS from Realme - it's less cluttered, has some very neat touches, like being able to record screen activity with internal audio, change app icons and so on
  • Excellent performance with the best processor of the Android world, the Snapdragon 865 - it fly through routine tasks, like messaging, social networking, photography, and casual gaming sessions - the phone manages to run graphic-heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 with amazing smoothness
  • Good, versatile quad camera setup: 64MP primary + 12MP telephoto + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor
  • The pictures shot with the main photo mode look great with lots of details and accurate colours in good lighting conditions
  • Ultra-wide photos from the phone have good details and also capture colours well (though, they aren’t as detailed as pictures clicked with the main camera)
  • The 13MP telephoto camera can achieve 5X optical hybrid zoom and 20X digital zoom - the zoomed-in pictures look surprisingly clear and show a good amount of detail
  • The Realme X50 Pro clicks good selfies in good lighting - selfies clicked with the main 32MP camera sensor look sharp and with a good amount of detail - the portrait selfies also look great with sharp edges and the background properly blurred out
  • The ultra-wide selfie camera is sufficient for clicking group selfies (though, misses out on some details)
  • Excellent stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support
  • The Realme X50 Pro also supports 5G and it future proofs the phone to use the feature when it will be available in India (though, don't buy this phone for 5G, there's practically no use for 5G in India right now, as it will take 2 or more years for 5G to come to India)
  • The Realme X50 Pro offers great battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - it will easily last one and a half days with a single charge
  • Insanely fast 65W Super Dart charging - the included 65W charger in the box takes just around 30 minutes to fully charge the phone, which is mind boggling
  • On the whole, the Realme X50 Pro is an excellent, top-grade addition to Realme's tradition of providing surprisingly reasonable priced phones - the best in class Snapdragon 865 with 90Hz smooth display and excellent stereo speaker make this phone one of the best bang for the buck phones at this price
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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)
  • The design is very similar to every other Realme phone out there and the repetition of design is getting boring
  • On the heavy and chunkier side, weighing 207g and having 9.4mm thickness
  • The screen isn't very bright and using it in direct sunlight is difficult
  • Pictures clicked in low-light scenarios miss out on details, colours also look dull and hazy, the camera struggles to focus - the situation remains the same in selfie night mode, the dedicated Night mode resolves the problem slightly but not too much, the OnePlus 7T clicks much better low-light shots while being cheaper
  • Overall, the cameras on the Realme X50 Pro gives you a lot of perspective to play with but quality wise, they aren't the best and phones like OnePlus 7T produce better photos
  • No standard headphone jack - you will need to use either USB-C or wireless headphones (none of those are included in the retail package)
  • On the other hand, OnePlus 7T offers similar features (except 5G and SD865) and better cameras with one of the best software experiences in lesser money and comes out as a solid competitor
