Realme X2 Pro Unboxing & Detailed Hands-On


so I'm only just back in the door really from the realme x2 Pro launch event in Madrid here and I do have as you can see Abe review unit so in this video I'm going to unbox real meas new flagship the x2 pro powered by snapdragon 855 + now because this is a loan review unit from them it has the maximum speak naturally so they've gone with the 12 gigabytes of RAM and the 256 gigabytes of UF s3 storage so in this video it's not going to be my full review treatment but there are a lot of questions I've seen from my first video this video will be a proper video I'll show you storage speeds and do two benchmarks give you some feedback or so some camera samples video samples so yes let's do a proper unboxing here that I will show you the box contents so inside we have a case they do include one believe it's a TPU style yes it is just like their other phones so it's a sea floor gray and it does cover the buttons as you can see so fairly decent protection out of the box we get here and this is just an information leaflet and the phone of course this is the white version and right under here we've got our super vaak charger now this is a crazy 50 watts and it will fully charge the phone in just 35 minutes so that's insanely quick our type-c cable of course now you will notice that it does have a thicker gauge wire and it's understandable considering the wattage that's going through this of course and lastly a sentry tool right there and the next two pros weight is 202 grams so it's not the lightest phone out there so as I pointed out in my first hands-on video that we've got Gorilla Glass front and rear on this one here and it does feel good in handy curved edges middle frame around the outside now the real me logo it's a little strange how they've put it off centered here I don't know why they've kind of done that they could have just put real me along here perhaps but hey I don't know it's odd that they've done this and then you can see jewel-tone le flash right here so the main camera at 64 megapixels we've got an ultra wide and we have then a two time zoom camera and this one also dedicated to dip the fake that's just 2 megapixels now you'll see that the button here on the right this one has a indent in it with a yellow color a little bit hard to pick up on camera but I can get my thumb to it quite easily now the symmetry I pulled it out already just to quickly show you that it does have a rubber gasket around it it is metal reinforced and it takes two nano-sim so sadly no micro SD card support which I was kind of hoping for and.

 I know a lot of you were as well doing so we've got four antenna lines apparently four by four and Tenace it up here so there's one here one here and on the left you can see the other two antennas and the volume up and down now this is made out of middle as well those buttons and they've got a good feel to them no rattle down the bottom we have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack hooray great that they did not drop that microphone type-c ports and then our loudspeaker up top no IR transmitter so if you needed one of those sadly you're out of luck with us it's just the secondary mic and you can see that the camera does stick out a little bit now I will actually measure that and we'll take a look and see just how much how thick this really is this phone okay so it's about 9.1 millimeter so it's not the thinnest phone if I count that camera then that brings it up to ten point six as you can see more or less this is just an estimate okay so let's take a look at the screen so the bezels will not win any awards for being the slimmest you can see they are not the slimmest bezels here their chin isn't too bad but overall it's okay we have a teardrop notch or water drop not 16 megapixel cameras and the front right there and overall the screen is really nice okay this is a 6.5 inch 2400 by 1080 so Full HD Plus Samsung AMOLED panel that has 1000 nits maximum brightness and it also supports HDR 10 plus so a really good screen now there have been already in the comments a few questions about this okay so voda fold out of the box of course they're gonna set it to 90 Hertz which is very smooth and fluid but it will hurt your battery life okay now you're able to change it just like the other phones that do have higher Hertz screens so you can set it to 60 now all that talk and onsens about people saying it once you've experienced hundred twenty Hertz on 90 hook screens you can't go back to sixty that to me is rubbish okay because I use 120 hurt phones I've gone back to my 60 hurt y-ye 30 Pro and,

 I don't have any issues you notice it at first and it's really not a deal breaker it's not such a big thing but yes okay it is just so fluid and smooth em and full screen jesters at the moment so of course we are running color OS there's options here too as well for their basically their screen dimming I have that enabled right now and you can tweak the scaling color modes vivid and of course your a cooler whites warm whites all of that is in there so performance of the ROM so far very very smooth so this is what I was talking about color OS your are they gonna love it or you're gonna hate it their apps draw it's good that it's got an apps drawer I actually am quite fond of that very similar to oxygen OS so maybe they're borrowing I think some optimization also from oneplus because it is very very smooth and fluid not just because it's 90 Hertz it's just the optimization of the ROM as well is excellent really really good there no problems launching things very fast to pop up scrolling and everything you notice it you can't see it right now on camera because of course I'm just recording in 30 frames per second so you have to take my word for that so wireless speeds really really quick okay as you can see we've got the dual band wireless well actually it's Jill Wyler so can use both the 5 gm 2.4 G Wireless bands simultaneously to help boost speeds so ufs 3.0 is in here okay very quick so 1400 danfa sequential reads random region right okay really good camera API true there are a few questions about verse so we've got level 3 support which is the best that's what you want so look out in the future for Google camera ports for that does it have Widevine level 1 sit yes yay this is great so this means of course we've got Netflix and Amazon Prime Full HD and it comes with quite a bit of bloatware alright - this is one of the cons we've got Facebook on there plenty of Google Apps Oprah and a few things that they put on the rom a lot of people won't really be too fond of runs Android 9 not Android 10 you get to 137 gigabytes free on the maximum spec version which I have my review unit here okay so and two twos just finished up and we have a really good score this is over four hundred thousand and this is due to the fact that I have remembered the twelve gigabytes of RAM so that's going to have a big impact so onto audio I haven't had enough time to test up 3.5 millimeter headphone jack yet but I will my full review and call quality okay I'll update you on that but loud speakers there's been a lot of questions give you a sample now at 107 follow me and we'll see how they sound [Music] okay I think more base is coming out the bottom speaker they sound okay it's great to have dual loudspeakers on here I'd have to say that I don't think the volume is the loudest of definitely not the loudest I've heard quality wise I would say average I have definitely heard better and I've also heard worse now a very quick example here of gaming this is Call of Duty and I've got it on their class maximum possible settings here and the maximum frame rate visuals everything running super smooth as expected with that 12 gigabytes of RAM and of course the 855 plus let's see if I can get at least one kill here before dying okay got lucky there oh and about to die now have actually been gaming for awhile and I've noticed that yes the phone is getting a little bit warm on the back and that's to be expected I will monitor temps later on I'll gain for a couple of hours straight and of course I died just then so that's gaming great performance as expected that brings me on to then our cameras so I'll give you a very brief run-through of the stock camera app here it's very straightforward so here we have the ultra you tap that for ultra wide now if you're in video and you do have the following settings here okay so we've got 4k a lot of people asking about this as well 4k 60 frames per second that's there which is good front-facing camera is only 1080p 30 and you also got this which is their ultra steady mode and I'll give you sample two of that so without wasting any more time let's jump into some video and camera samples straight from the x2 Pro so here's a quick sample now all 4k video this is pity frames per second we do have a 60 frames per second option probably give you a sample that in my full review so the sun.star sitting here at 6 p.m. and the electronic image stabilization does seem good but there is no optical ok with the sensor video doesn't need optical only ready for low-light photography so when I hold my hand like to say we've got quite a bit of a crop here the focus does seem to work well which is good I haven't seen any focus pulsing in and out issues that we sometimes see with some of these phones so you can treat video with the ultra wide camera as well which I'm currently shooting on is mentioned with the main camera though you cannot just swap overlay unamended factors allow us to for example Samsung and Huawei you can swap between them but here we can't see,

 they just make up in your mind which camera you're going to use it does have electronic image stabilisation again and it seems to work well but you can see some shutters as I'm walking along so there's a sample of their ultra steady footage now so 60 frames per second 1080p with some very aggressive electronic image stabilization doesn't work before Kay so I'm now right these stairs here and you can see that it's quite a bit smoother than the other modes will be for example 4k which doesn't look as smooth as this one here of course the 60 frames per second does help it has quite a huge crop because of this electronic image stabilization this is a quick sample now with the front facing camera so we've got 1080p video 3 frames per second and you can see it's shaking and it's trembling a little bit that's because the electronic image stabilization even though it's enabled does not seem to be working so hopefully a firmware update will add this and we'll get a better quality out of this no no 4k video either with the front-facing camera it's just the electronic image stabilization they need to fix I think audio quality here as well still sounds good [Music] [Music] [Music] all right so you can see from those camera examples that daylight it does take a very good picture the video quality stabilization seems very good audio is very good there now once it go into one of the details but just bear in mind okay that this is just a initial first impressions with this phone I do need a lot more time with it before I post my full review but so far is so much to like about this phone mean 399 euro price tag I was actually expecting it to be about 379 the price didn't directly translate from China over to Europe so they've added a little bit more to that but even so when you look at though what's out there for that price here in Europe at least that that's a super competitive offering just so much so there's so many things to like about it the screen is very good a 6.5 inch 19 Hertz is gonna take a toll on the battery life I'm already seeing if you're using 90 Hertz I've got a figure of what I'm sort of getting per hour of use and I was looking quite high it's looking like about 15 percent ready pins up one what you're doing there so I think it's gonna be about continual use 7 to 8 hours with the 90 hits maybe even less than that and if you put it on 60 then I expect to see a lot more so that's when it'll be a 2-day phone always on display is there as well we've got NFC 3.5 millimeter headphone jack no micro SD card support that's missing we don't have an IP rating really what else wireless charging no one is charging on this but a lot of people always there's always a debate in the comments of my videos and say why do you need wireless charging when you got such fast wired charging I still find it convenient just to place my phone on top of its wireless charging pad go to bed wake up with a fully charged phone but hey you probably don't even care about that but the wired charging is crazy far so 35 minutes and you've got a hundred percent battery in fact when you plug it in you can actually just sit there and look at it slowly going up because the accurate reading that they give you there you can just see it going up and it's just so so quick there the whole phone is very very fast as you'd expect with the top in Android chipset that it's got on there so gaming performance is looking very good and it's also the wrong optimization the 90 Hertz is helping but oK we've got color OS that a lot of people don't like but it has the apps draw from really looks like it's from oxygen OS very similar and that's where you can see similarities with the optimization because the ROM is very fluid very responsive and as you'd expect of course with that specification but it doesn't always work out that way sometimes you see phones that have very high spec but you see little stutters in the UI or little tiny legs and things but I'm not really seeing it with this at all in fact I cannot see any just yet but again bear in mind this is first impressions I haven't had a long time with the phone but it's looking super positive I love that your Wi-Fi feature that means that you can really push really high speeds it depends on what apps are going to support it and work with it though but it's really handy to have that you can use the 2.4 gigahertz wireless band and also 5 gigahertz wireless AC combined both for them too in theory almost well not quite but double your speeds and as you saw is getting really impressive speeds over 600 megabits per second here with my fiber line and the studio so so far I think it's safe to say that this is a very very competitive phone in the market right now and I hate that term but I'm gonna say it,

 the flagship killer you okay but it is one of the what you could say more budget flagships and it offers a lot so where was it where is it gonna fall short I think for me I think the camera performance it takes very good stills but compared to say a huawei p30 pro night mode the other top flash it's like iPhone 11 samsung note tents I don't think it's going to be able to completely compete directly with those phones and that's kind of to be expected when it's selling for half the price but it still does take a very good photo so I need more time with it more time to just a battery life more time to go over and go into detail with some other things voice calls audio quality and all that so I hope to see you back in the full review now if you do have any questions comments about the x2 Pro while I have this temporary loan unit let me know in the comments I might be able to help you out there with your questions and I hope that this video answered a lot of those questions that buyers are considering well does it have Widevine level 1 cert does it support camera API will it work later on with G cam ports and things like that hopefully that was answered for you and thank you.
