The Realme 2 Pro has a glass finish and comes with a metal side frame. As on all Realme phones, the glass used on the back is actually plastic, and that’s fine considering the cost factors at play.
The most distinctive element of the phone is the tiny water-drop or dewdrop notch at the front. The tiny notch allows for a near bezel-less display without hogging a significant portion of the status bar. And as of now, the Realme 2 Pro is the cheapest phone with this kind of notch.
The Realme 2 Pro has a 16MP camera on the rear paired with a 2MP depth sensor, and a 16MP selfie camera up front. The camera performance isn’t perfect, but it’s quite good for the price.
The Realme 2 Pro houses a 3500mAh battery and bundles a 10W charger. The battery can last for more than a day of light and moderate usage. With heavy usage, the battery drain can be steep.
If you are looking for a value for money option, the Realme 2 Pro is a great buy. The phone looks good, has a staggering screen-to-body ratio, has a decent set of cameras, and is a solid performer. Moreover, considering the aggressive price, its flaws are forgivable and forgettable.
The biggest downside of the phone is its software. The Color OS is still unpalatable, which is why users may consider stock Android options like Nokia 6.1 Plus and Motorola One Power that are relatively safer bets.read more →
