Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

Until recently, Realme hasn't tried its hand at making flagships, but the company decided to change everything with the release of the X2 Pro model, this is a typical flagship from a Chinese manufacturer. This means that in the model they tried to collect all the best that is available on the market, and at the same time leave an affordable price. In many ways, this device resembles the Realme XT, a mid-range model, they have the same chassis, but many little things are different, which makes the X2 Pro completely different in every sense.

Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

The classic approach for Chinese companies, whose names are not yet known to the general public, is to offer their flagships at an affordable price. In many ways, these are products that should attract attention, show the level of technology, and impress. But at the same time, mass models should be sold at a lower price. Remember how OnePlus entered the market, the cost of smartphones was excellent, but with each generation and growth in popularity, it grew and grew until they became on par with A-brands. Given that the same shareholders are behind Realme, the strategy does not change.

For the buyer, this means that you can get an interesting price / quality ratio and good features at a cost that other companies do not have for their flagships. However, there are also enough cons here, and they are standard for the brand - its own shell is one of them. Let's try together to figure out how interesting this device is and what it is.

Design, dimensions, controls

The smartphone is available in two body colors - white and blue (Lunar White, Neptune Blue), both options have overflow. I have a blue device, it is bright, well iridescent.

Two more variants are also available in China, the so-called Master Edition, the artist looked for inspiration for them in red brickwork and concrete, hence the colors - red and dark gray.

There are two volume keys on the left side. The slot for two nanoSIM cards is on the right side, there is no memory card in the device. On the right side there is also an on/off button. The device has a 3.5 mm jack, it is located on the bottom end. There is also a speaker, a USB Type C connector. There are two microphones, they are placed on the ends.

The camera modules are located on the rear wall vertically in the center, they protrude.

The size of the device and its weight are typical for such models, there is nothing to complain about here (161 x 75.7 x 8.7 mm, 199 grams). I like the device in my hands. But the case that is included in the kit has an unpleasant blue tint and completely hides the game of the case. In it, the device looks withered, and it is getting bigger. This is a common problem for all models from Realme.

Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

The design of the phone is familiar to the current generation of devices - it is no different for Samsung, Huawei, and other companies. A neat droplet on the screen, a cutout for the front camera. Display bezels are minimal.

The fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, it works quickly. It practically does not react to wet fingers, which can be considered a minus. But there is face unlock, which for me has become the preferred way to access the contents of the smartphone.

Review of Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) smartphone Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

There are no complaints about the build quality, everything is fine. A nice device that is on the market, but does not stand out in any way with its appearance. It is very similar to the same Realme XT, with which it shares the same chassis.

Display

Samsung is aggressively promoting its displays to third-party manufacturers. The matrix that Realme received is no different from those used in the A-series from Samsung or in the M30s. In any case, there are no such differences if you look at the technical specifications - 6.5 inches, 1080x2400 pixels (20:9), SuperAMOLED, 402 ppi, automatic brightness control, AlwaysOn Display (clock only), Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

But HDR10 support has also appeared here, better color gamut, plus there is a frequency of 90 Hz. The latter is not very noticeable, but the interface works very smoothly and pleasantly, let's put it down to a frequency of 90 Hz.

Excellent screen, well readable in the sun, there are no shortcomings. The maximum brightness is 1000 nits, which can be considered a kind of record.

Support for AlwaysOn Display is conditional, you can display only the clock, set a work schedule.

The downside for Realme is the work with fonts, the choice of the fonts themselves, they look simple and spoil the impression of the device.

For those who are imbued with the fact that AMOLED screens have PWM and it hurts their heads, here is an interesting solution, flicker reduction - but the price for this is that the color reproduction suffers, the picture becomes noisy. But it’s almost impossible to see it, I don’t have microscopes in my eyes, and no matter how hard I looked, I didn’t see a difference at low backlight levels in the quality of the picture.

An excellent display, which can be considered quite good for its class. How 1000 nits of brightness will affect durability is hard to predict (in reality, measurements show 750 nits in automatic mode, 500 nits in manual mode). But the maximum brightness is too high, I used about 50-60% and adaptive backlight.

The film was glued to the screen at the factory, it will not last long, as it constantly bubbles, wears out in a matter of weeks. So if you want a protective film, then put your own. In my opinion, this should not be done. And the fingerprint sensor built into the screen may not work correctly from a third-party film / glass.

Battery

The smartphone has a built-in Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, it supports fast charging, and such a charger (50 W) is included in the kit. There is no wireless charging, but for this segment it is normal.

Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) smartphone review

This is a very fast charge, you can see on the screen how the charging percentage is creeping.

In 33 minutes, you can charge the battery to 100%. At the presentation, I thought that there were some asterisks, reservations, etc., in practice, nothing like that turned out, everything works with a bang.

Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

Here are some operating modes of the machine:

  • Video playback time at maximum brightness - up to 18 hours;
  • Internet browsing via Wi-Fi - up to 15 hours, 3G - up to 12 hours, LTE - up to 14 hours;
  • Working time when talking in 4G - up to 18 hours;

The device works on average for a day with a fairly heavy load (a couple of GB of transferred data, the screen time is about 4.5 hours). In my opinion, you will get an average of one full day or two days with a moderate load. And that's good.

In games, everything is not so simple, the device is quickly discharged (but it does not heat up). There is a feeling that these are software flaws, on average, in three-dimensional toys, the operating time is about 7 hours.

Memory, chipset, performance

This uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset (7 nm technology), one Kryo 485 core up to 2.96 GHz, three Kryo 485 cores up to 2.42 GHz, four Kryo 485 cores up to 1.8 GHz, Adreno 640. This the best possible performance at the moment, look at the results of synthetic tests.

The device comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. A 12/256 GB model will also appear. Both models are distinguished by the fact that they have UFS 3.0, which is very good.

Communications

The device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 version, NFC (Google Pay) is present, everything works fine.

In terms of navigation, everything is also very good (GPS / A-GPS / Beidou), a cold start on city streets takes 3-5 seconds, navigation accuracy is good, there are no complaints.

Camera

The front camera uses a Sony IMX471 module with a resolution of 16 megapixels. There are various effects, the ability to blur the background. Not a bad selfie camera for its class.

Look at how digital zoom works, I like its capabilities (x5). The picture remains quite clear, not at all loose, as it once was.

Video recording does not raise any questions, the video quality is average - neither bad nor good. Average.

The camera is average, for a flagship I would like something higher class, but alas, ah. In general, the number of suitable photos is quite high, see for yourself.

Impressions

There were no complaints about the quality of voice transmission. Noise cancellation works well, you can not complain about it. In basements, the device may lose network signal, but there are few such places. This is a model for a good network signal, then there will be no problems. In everyday life, you will not see much difference.

The Russian cost of the model for 8/128 GB will be 34,990 rubles (certain discounts are possible). That's plenty for a brand that's unfamiliar to most consumers. On the other hand, with the Snapdragon 855+, plenty of storage, and fast charging included, a great screen isn't much. Minus in its own shell, not everyone will like it.

This model has a huge number of competitors, inside BBK Corporation it is OPPO Reno Ace, everything is exactly the same, only 65W charging! And the price is slightly higher.

For many, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro can be a real alternative, its price is 30-35 thousand rubles, depending on where you buy it. The screen is somewhat worse, the shell is better (the latter is a matter of taste). In a word, there is something to think about and what to choose.

There are many different models in this price segment, eyes run wide. I have listed only a couple of those who will be accurately compared with this device. But you can look at the cost and find many analogues in which certain things are better, and something is worse. How do you like the device?

The Master Editions look very good in real life, it's a pity that we don't sell them here. I hope that these devices will be delivered to the Russian market, in our country such models usually take heat.

Этот аппарат является одним из первых с Quad-Bayer матрицей от Samsung – GW1. Это модуль нового поколения, и на него сделали ставку разные компании, в том числе и Xiaomi. Мне было интересно посмотреть, что умеет такой модуль на практике, но прежде советую прочитать текст о том, как работает подобная матрица, чтобы не было непонимания процесса.

Большой разницы в том, как аппарат снимает в разрешении 64 мегапикселя и в привычном в 16 мегапикселей, я не увидел. Возможно, что, рассматривая с лупой, можно заметить отдельные моменты, но в целом они сравнимы. Смело можно отказываться от этого разрешения и использовать то, что стоит по умолчанию, вы ничего не потеряете.

Just like in OPPO smartphones, it uses its own shell called Color OS. Themes and design have been slightly changed to make it different from OPPO smartphones, but these are cosmetic changes.

The front camera uses a Sony IMX471 module with a resolution of 16 megapixels. There are various effects, the ability to blur the background. Not a bad selfie camera for its class.

Этот аппарат является одним из первых с Quad-Bayer матрицей от Samsung – GW1. Это модуль нового поколения, и на него сделали ставку разные компании, в том числе и Xiaomi. Мне было интересно посмотреть, что умеет такой модуль на практике, но прежде советую прочитать текст о том, как работает подобная матрица, чтобы не было непонимания процесса.

Большой разницы в том, как аппарат снимает в разрешении 64 мегапикселя и в привычном в 16 мегапикселей, я не увидел. Возможно, что, рассматривая с лупой, можно заметить отдельные моменты, но в целом они сравнимы. Смело можно отказываться от этого разрешения и использовать то, что стоит по умолчанию, вы ничего не потеряете.

The camera is far from perfect, it is the same as that in Realme XT, only the telephoto module is different.

Look at how digital zoom works, I like its capabilities (x5). The picture remains quite clear, not at all loose, as it once was.

Video recording does not raise any questions, the video quality is average - neither bad nor good. Average.

The camera is average, for a flagship I would like something higher class, but alas, ah. In general, the number of suitable photos is quite high, see for yourself.

Software Features

Just like in OPPO smartphones, it uses its own shell called Color OS. Themes and design have been slightly changed to make it different from OPPO smartphones, but these are cosmetic changes. Shell version 6.1. We had a complete review of the shell, it is almost one hundred percent identical to what you will find in this device.

I'll give you some screenshots of the interface so you can understand what the shell looks like.

Impressions

There were no complaints about the quality of voice transmission. Noise cancellation works well, you can not complain about it. In basements, the device may lose the network signal, but there are few such places. This is a model for a good network signal, then there will be no problems. In everyday life, you won't see much difference.

The Russian cost of the model for 8/128 GB will be 34,990 rubles (certain discounts are possible). That's plenty for a brand that's unfamiliar to most consumers. On the other hand, with a Snapdragon 855+, plenty of storage and fast charging included, a great screen isn't much. Minus in its own shell, not everyone will like it.

This model has a huge number of competitors, inside BBK Corporation it is OPPO Reno Ace, everything is exactly the same, only 65W charging! And the price is slightly higher.

For many, Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro can be a real alternative, its price is 30-35 thousand rubles, depending on where you buy it. The screen is somewhat worse, the shell is better (the latter is a matter of taste). In a word, there is something to think about and what to choose.

Realme X2 Pro smartphone review (RMX1931)

There are many different models in this price segment, eyes run wide. I have listed only a couple of those who will be accurately compared with this device. But you can look at the cost and find many analogues in which certain things are better, and something is worse. How do you like the device?

Realme X2 Pro (RMX1931) review

Until recently, Realme hasn't tried its hand at making flagships, but the company decided to change everything with the release of the X2 Pro model, this is a typical flagship from a Chinese manufacturer. This means that in the model they tried to collect all the best that is available on the market, and at the same time leave an affordable price. In many ways, this device resembles the Realme XT, a mid-range model, they have the same chassis, but many little things are different, which makes the X2 Pro completely different in every sense.

The classic approach for Chinese companies, whose names are not yet known to the general public, is to offer their flagships at an affordable price. In many ways, these are products that should attract attention, show the level of technology, and impress. But at the same time, mass models should be sold at a lower price. Remember how OnePlus entered the market, the cost of smartphones was excellent, but with each generation and growth in popularity, it grew and grew until they became on par with A-brands. Given that the same shareholders are behind Realme, the strategy does not change.

For the buyer, this means that you can get an interesting price / quality ratio and good features at a cost that other companies do not have for their flagships. However, there are also enough cons here, and they are standard for the brand - its own shell is one of them. Let's try together to figure out how interesting this device is and what it is.

Design, dimensions, controls

The smartphone is available in two body colors - white and blue (Lunar White, Neptune Blue), both options have overflow. I have a blue device, it is bright, well iridescent.

Two more variants are also available in China, the so-called Master Edition, the artist looked for inspiration for them in red brickwork and concrete, hence the colors - red and dark gray.

The difference between these colors is that they are more matte, they have several layers so that the color plays.

The Master Editions look very good in real life, it's a pity that we don't sell them here. I hope that these devices will be delivered to the Russian market, in our country such models usually take heat.

Aluminum frame, glass on both sides (Corning Gorilla Glass 5). On none of the colors, handprints are not striking, there is an oleophobic coating, but this is rather the merit of a properly selected varnish. Imprints remain, but the play of the case in the light hides them.

There are two volume keys on the left side. The slot for two nanoSIM cards is on the right side, there is no memory card in the device. On the right side there is also an on/off button. The device has a 3.5 mm jack, it is located on the bottom end. There is also a speaker, a USB Type C connector. There are two microphones, they are placed on the ends.

The camera modules are located on the rear wall vertically in the center, they protrude.

The size of the device and its weight are typical for such models, there is nothing to complain about here (161 x 75.7 x 8.7 mm, 199 grams). I like the device in my hands. But the cover that is included in the kit has an unpleasant blue tint, completely hides the game of the case. In it, the device looks withered, and it is getting bigger. This is a common problem for all models from Realme.

The design of the phone is familiar to the current generation of devices - it is no different for Samsung, Huawei, and other companies. A neat droplet on the screen, a cutout for the front camera. Display bezels are minimal.

The fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, it works quickly. It practically does not react to wet fingers, which can be considered a minus. But there is face unlock, which for me has become the preferred way to access the contents of the smartphone.

There are no complaints about the build quality, everything is fine. A nice device that is on the market, but does not stand out in any way with its appearance. It is very similar to the same Realme XT, with which it shares the same chassis.

Display

Samsung is aggressively promoting its displays to third-party manufacturers. The matrix that Realme received is no different from those used in the A-series from Samsung or in the M30s. In any case, there are no such differences if you look at the technical specifications - 6.5 inches, 1080x2400 pixels (20:9), SuperAMOLED, 402 ppi, automatic brightness control, AlwaysOn Display (clock only), Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

An excellent display, which can be considered quite good for its class. How 1000 nits of brightness will affect durability is hard to predict (in reality, measurements show 750 nits in automatic mode, 500 nits in manual mode). But the maximum brightness is too high, I used about 50-60% and adaptive backlight.

The film was glued to the screen at the factory, it will not last long, as it constantly bubbles, wears out in a matter of weeks. So if you want a protective film, then put your own. In my opinion, this should not be done. And the fingerprint sensor built into the screen may not work correctly from a third-party film / glass.

Battery

The smartphone has a built-in Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, it supports fast charging, and such a charger (50 W) is included in the kit. There is no wireless charging, but for this segment it is normal.

This is a very fast charge, you can see on the screen how the charging percentage is creeping.

In 33 minutes, you can charge the battery to 100%. At the presentation, I thought that there were some asterisks, reservations, etc., in practice, nothing like that turned out, everything works with a bang.

Here are some operating modes of the machine:

  • Video playback time at maximum brightness - up to 18 hours;
  • Internet browsing via Wi-Fi - up to 15 hours, 3G - up to 12 hours, LTE - up to 14 hours;
  • Working time when talking in 4G - up to 18 hours;

The device works on average for a day with a fairly heavy load (a couple of GB of transferred data, the screen time is about 4.5 hours). In my opinion, you will get an average of one full day or two days with a moderate load. And that's good.

In games, everything is not so simple, the device is quickly discharged (but it does not heat up). There is a feeling that these are software flaws, on average, in three-dimensional toys, the operating time is about 7 hours.

Memory, chipset, performance

This uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset (7 nm technology), one Kryo 485 core up to 2.96 GHz, three Kryo 485 cores up to 2.42 GHz, four Kryo 485 cores up to 1.8 GHz, Adreno 640. This the best possible performance at the moment, look at the results of synthetic tests.

The device comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. A 12/256 GB model will also appear. Both models are distinguished by the fact that they have UFS 3.0, which is very good.

Communications

The device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 version, NFC (Google Pay) is present, everything works fine.

In terms of navigation, everything is also very good (GPS / A-GPS / Beidou), a cold start on city streets takes 3-5 seconds, navigation accuracy is good, there are no complaints.

Camera

The front camera uses a Sony IMX471 module with a resolution of 16 megapixels. There are various effects, the ability to blur the background. Not a bad camera for selfies and for its class.

This device is one of the first with Quad-Bayer matrix from Samsung - GW1. This is a new generation module, and various companies have relied on it, including Xiaomi. I was interested to see what such a module can do in practice, but first I advise you to read the text about how such a matrix works so that there is no misunderstanding of the process.

I did not see a big difference in how the device shoots at a resolution of 64 megapixels and at the usual 16 megapixels. It is possible that, when viewed with a magnifying glass, one can notice individual points, but in general they are comparable. Feel free to refuse this permission and use the default, you won't lose anything.
