We all know for a fact that finding a great phone comes at a cost and finding an affordable phone comes with its fair share of compromises. But somehow, this new company managed to pull every single end and unveiled a smartphone that did not only make its way through every country but left a very lasting impression on consumer’s hearts. That’s the RealMe 2 Pro. After using it for a week right now – we’d like to share some of the best things the phone has to offer for the price tag you pay for.
1 – The Display
The RealMe 2 Pro has a 6.3” Full HD+ Display on the front. And not just that, the RealMe 2 Pro happens to have a 90.8% Screen Ratio with a screen to body ratio of 19.5:9 respectively. To give users the protection for their screen, they have covered with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is Scratch and dust resistant.
Fitting in a huge display was possible thanks to the dewdrop notch that comprises everything – the camera, Light Sensor and the Earpiece. It’s a pretty display to use and watching content on it like shows on Netflix or YouTube is very nice as it is immersive and the 19:5 aspect ratio does give a rather cinematic experience with its wide screen look on the horizontal orientation.
If you are someone who wants more screen to play your favorite games, the RealMe 2 Pro has got you covered because it’s pretty fun to play with. We tried Tekken and Asphalt 8, to our surprise it was immersive the graphics is better than phones that’s usually priced in this segment.
2 – The Specification Under the Hood
What makes the RealMe 2 Pro truly unique is the specification. On the outside, it looks pretty but don’t let that fool you because it has an impressive configuration under the hood. Starting off with the processor, the RealMe 2 Pro is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with a built-in AI Engine. This is an octa-core processor which is clocked in at 1.95 GHz respectively. Following that, the Processor is coupled with an Adreno GPU 512 which gives you the power to play some of your favorite titles on the go or at home.
In terms of configuration, consumers get to pick between three different options – The base variant starts with 4GB RAM | 64GB Internal. The Mid Variant comes with a 6GB RAM | 64GB Internal and finally, the highest variant is packed with 8GB RAM and a whopping 128GB Internal Storage that gives you the space to store lots of photos, videos, music and much more. You might be wondering, “Is there an SD Card slot then?”. Well, guess what – it does and you can pop in a MicroSD Card up to 256GB without compromising any SIM Slots because it has dedicated Dual SIM Slots as well.
3 – The Camera
On the back, you’ll find the RealMe 2 Pro packs a Dual Camera Setup – a primary 16MP Sensor and a 2MP Depth Sensor with an aperture of f/1.7 and f/2.4 respectively. For a mid tier phone, it actually does a better job in taking pictures. The colors are sharp and vivid, the quality of the image is amazing. Beside, you can see Brand A with their photo and Brand X with their photo quality. Stunning isn’t it?
This is possible because RealMe has included the highly popular Sony IMX398 Sensor that comes with 6P Lens and also has a Dual Pixel Fast Focusing to capture right images. Infact, you could even capture videos with the help of the EIS in it. Fan of those lights? Well, RealMe has got you covered on that.
Making memories in life is pretty important and with that, you can use the 16MP Camera on the front that does a wonderous job in capturing the real you with your friends.
4 – The Finishing
The RealMe 2 Pro comes with 2 colors – Ice Lake and Black Sea. Our favorite is the Ice Late and here’s why. The phone is constructed in a glass like plastic on the back but it has gone under a process that shows a transparent glossy visual effect. This is finely crafted with a 15-layer laminated technology which gives the consumer a firm, smooth, immersive grip. It even shines under light, which gives the phone this trippy effect.
Also, Ice Lake is possibly the most therapeutic color we have seen on a smartphone, till date.
5 – The Price
The RealMe 2 Pro is possibly the Mid-Range Killer we have been waiting for. Here’s the reason why. In this price segment, phones from other manufacturers tend to have great price tag but the performance kind of lags behind. With that said, the RealMe 2 Pro is one kind of a phone. Not only it’s powered by one of the best performance centric Snapdragon 660 Processor, a good display, surprisingly good camera and pretty much checks off the list.
What makes this phone even more special is the price tag that it offers. You can get the base variant with 4GB RAM | 64GB for RM 849. If you are someone who wants more RAM, the 6GB RAM | 64GB is being sold for RM 949. Once again, if you are someone who wants to go all-in on a phone that has huge storage and RAM, the 8GB RAM | 128GB is being sold for RM 1099.
Well guess what, there’s going to be another special sale this 28th November, where you can get the 4GB for RM 799, 6GB for RM 899 and 8GB for a whopping RM 999. Can a deal get any better and this is happening all on their exclusive partner – Shopee. Excited much? Well, it’s time for you to get your hand on one. 😉
