Rear Camera Samples – Realme 2 PRO
Indoor Camera Samples
Low Light Camera Samples
Low light performance is not bad considering the price of the phone.
Outdoor Camera Samples
You can get a good amount of details and nice close up shots using the Realme 2 Pro camera.
Close Up Shot – Good Amount of Details
Outdoor Image Using HDR Mode
Dynamic Range and Contrast level are a bit muted. The color accuracy and exposure is decent.
The camera struggles only in tricky backlit conditions with exposure. Otherwise, it can shoot images like a Pro.
Portrait Mode Camera Sample – Edge Detection is acceptable but not perfect.
Front Camera Selfies Samples Realme 2 PRO
Indoor Selfies lack the punchy colors and details and the portrait mode looks more artificial and dreamy.
The phone comes with a 3500 mAH capacity battery, which on paper is great for all-day usage. However, at times I have seen the battery drain more rapidly(in comparison to other phones), especially while gaming and surfing the internet.
Yet it is not worrying, I usually get a full day battery life with ease.
The phone comes with a 10 Watts charger, which is not snailed slow or super fast.
You can charge the device in about 2 hours and 10 minutes using the supplied charger.
I am using the phone with JIO sim and so far there are no issues.
At times the reception and call quality were not up to the mark.
It is a bit tedious to pinpoint if it was due to the phone or the network quality at those places.
However, for the most part, I can use it effortlessly to make calls, use wifi, or cellular data. You can even add a second 4G sim and a micro-sd card.
The phone comes with a micro-USB port and there is no USB type C port or NFC.
Egregiously, it lacks notification LED, which I think is a must-have feature for any phone.
Sound and Audio Quality
The sound quality from the headphones is superb. Same as the Realme 1, which I really liked.
Oppo is most likely using an AMP with the Realme 2 Pro to enhance the Audio Quality.
You can dive in the sound settings, and use the custom presets to further enhance the audio quality.
I mostly use headphones for watching serials on Amazon Prime or Netflix or listening to songs on Youtube and Prime music.
The clarity, bass, treble, and soundstage is appreciable on this budget smartphone. Audiophiles may love it for it’s slightly better audio experience.
There is one speaker at the bottom side of the phone which is sufficiently loud to hear calls or music.
There are several phones in the sub 15K price range that offer may excel in one area.
For example, if you want better cameras you can opt for the Mi A2, or if you want a more sturdy phone Nokia 6.1 Plus is ideal.
And if you want better battery life the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 or Motorola One Power is the best choice.
Honor 8X is another compelling option with great performance and display.
But the Realme 2 Pro has many merits and is also Rs. 1000-2000 cheaper than most rival phones.
It is a good all-rounder and comes with balanced specs.
Let’s have a look at some of the Pros and Cons for the device.
- Gorgeous FHD+ Waterdrop Display.
- Decent Dual Rear Cameras.
- Latest Android Oreo 8.1.
- Super Fast Performance, Face unlocking.
- No USB Type C Port.
- Not very durable (Plastic Build).
- No Notification LED.
Pro & Cons for Realme 2 PRO
Concluding Thoughts – Why Should You Buy Realme 2 Pro?
The sub 15k or 20k segment is saturated with several phones that offer incredible value for money, and the Realme 2 Pro-trade blows with rivals.
The phone has the above-mentioned Pros and some Cons but in totality is a wonderful device to use as a daily driver.
Recently, launched OnePlus 6T uses a similar waterdrop notch – the latest innovation from Oppo.
I think the tiny notch display is one of the biggest positives for the Realme 2 Pro which is not available on any rival phones.
The phone looks futuristic and even has a decent performance.
I like the cameras on the Realme 2 Pro and is comparable to the Honor Play but not as good as the POCO F1 or the Xiaomi Mi A2.
Also, Realme is promising updates to improve the experience and minor bugs which is a positive reinforcement to recommend this phone.
Notably, the company has recently raised prices for other mobiles due to the depreciating Rupee. But has kept the price for Realme 2 Pro the same, giving us another reason to recommend it.
Overall, after using the device for many days, I think it is a good all-rounder and you can buy it without worries.
