RealMe X2 Review
We've known since September that Realme will launch Realme XT 730G this month, and it is finally time. Now known as Realme X2, this is the company's answer to Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, which is one of the most powerful current smartphones that you can buy for less than Rs. 20,000.

Realme X2 comes in almost the same price points as Realme XT $ 16,881 (review), but it features a more powerful processor, faster charging, and a high-definition front camera. All in all, it looks like a pretty decent upgrade on paper. However the main attraction here is Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which is aimed at players. This SoC company is said to offer better graphics performance compared to its Snapdragon 730 counterpart, as well as better overall performance compared to Snapdragon 710 and 712. Realme X2 is the first phone in the sector to be built around this chip, thanks to aggressive pricing from Realme.

If you are someone who is always looking for a good smartphone for less than Rs. 20,000, you will be wondering if Realme X2 is the best offer at the moment. lets take alook.

Realme X2 design

Realme X2 carries the same DNA design as Realme XT, instead of X2 Pro (Review) as its name will make you believe. Physically, it is difficult to distinguish the two phones from each other, unless you get the new Pearl Green that is only available for the X2 now. This color has a glossy frame, rather than a matte color on other color options. Build quality and finish are good, and this phone isn't terribly slippery. The back also has the same "hyperbolic" pattern that XT had, which means it will shine when light hits it as it moves.

The screen is still relatively large, so using this phone comfortably with one hand can sometimes be a challenge. The buttons are positioned well and the port layout is the same as in previous Realme phones, with the speaker, USB Type-C port and headphone jack placed below. The X2 supports expandable storage and has a dedicated microSD slot, as well as slots for two nano SIM cards.

The 6.4-inch Full HD + (1080 x 2340) screen is the same that we saw on Realme XT. It's a Super AMOLED panel with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. The screen also uses Gorilla Glass 5 to protect from scratching, while Realme uses the same glass for the back panel as well. Realme X2 has the same camera design as the XT, which stands out a little, but the bundled case proves it.

The box's content is also similar, as it consists of a SIM ejection tool, a USB Type-C cable, a case and a quick charger. The latter is new because this is the first Realme phone to come with VOOC Flash Charge 4.0, which supports 30W fast charging. Basically, it's the same Warp Charge 30T charger that came with the newer OnePlus 7T series $ 34,999. We did this by plugging the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition to $ 58,999 in Realme Charger and discovering it as a Warp Charger.

Realme X2 specifications and software

The star of Realme X2 is its processor. This is Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which we've seen before on phones like Samsung Galaxy A80 € 33,999 and Oppo Reno 2 $ 34,450.80 (review). It is worth noting that both phones cost more than Rs. 30,000, in order to introduce the same SoC under Rs. 20,000 is a great achievement for Realme. Snapdragon 730G features eight Kryo 470 cores and GPU Adreno 618, both of which are superior to those in Snapdragon 710 and 712 SoCs. It is also based on the smallest 8 nm manufacturing process, which makes it more energy efficient.

Realme X2 was launched in three variants in India - one of which has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (16,999 rupees); one with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage (Rs 18,999) Finally 8 GB RAM and 128 GB Storage (Rs. 19,999). All variants use LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 flash storage standard. Other connectivity features include dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5, support for three satellite navigation systems, and the usual array of sensors.

This phone also supports Google Widevine L1 DRM certification, so videos from apps like Netflix can be streamed at a higher resolution than SD. Realme X2 does not support FM radio, which is what XT did. The Indian version also lacks NFC, but this shouldn't be a big deal for most people.

Realme X2 comes with ColorOS 6.1, just like the X2 Pro. The security patch has been a bit dated on our unit (October 2019), but hopefully this will be fixed soon. The software features are similar to what we recently saw in Realme X2 Pro. There is Google Digital Wellbeing, system-level dark mode, and lots of gestures and shortcuts to play with. You can also get lots of pre-installed apps, and only third-party apps can be uninstalled. We've covered all the features before, so don't forget to check out the Realme X2 Pro, Realme 5 Pro and Realme XT Reviews for all the details.

Realme X2 performance and battery life
We had the 8 GB Realme X2 model with us and, as expected, Android was running smoothly. The in-screen fingerprint sensor was quick to authenticate and we didn't encounter any misreading or failed attempts. You can even get a bunch of different animation patterns for the fingerprint placement index to choose from. Face recognition works very well and you can use it even in very low light environments. There is no LED indicator for notifications, but you can enable permanent primary mode on the screen that shows you basic information such as time and alerts from some apps like messages or missed calls.

Conclusion : 

We did not encounter any problems with heating. Even with the heavy camera outdoors, the back and sides of the phone are barely warm, which is a good sign. Realme X2 made a solid gaming performance. We've played PUBG Mobile, Asphalt 9: Legends, and Arena of Valor - all graphically intense nicknames - and have worked well without causing any excessive heat on the X2. The gameplay was smooth even with the fully-run Asphalt 9: Legends: PUBG Mobile graphics settings. The phone performed well in standards as well. We got 267,419 points in AnTuTu and 59 fps in T-Rex test from GFXbench.
