Realme X2 Review: 64 Million Hawk-eye Quad-camera Cross-grade War Flagship


[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel] Photography has gradually become a required feature of cell phones since the first camera-equipped cell phone in 2000. Although the argument that pixels are useless continues, for users, higher pixels can bring more details and possibilities, which is why cell phone manufacturers are relentlessly pursuing high pixels. In the first half of 2019, 48 megapixels have become the “standard,” whether for the flagship product Sony IMX 586, or other models used on the Samsung GM1, can bring users 48 megapixels of impact experience; in the second half of 2019, Samsung GW1 image sensor bringing users 48 megapixels of impact experience; The realme X2 features a 64-megapixel camera in addition to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, 6GB 64GB/8GB 128GB of mass storage, and up to 30W of VOOC flash charging.

Photography: 64MP Eagle Eye Quad Camera In terms of optics, the realme X2 has a 32-megapixel ultra-clear front camera. 32-megapixel is also the highest pixel front camera of realme at the moment, providing users with richer photo details. It brings more stable video functions through the front camera’s anti-shake algorithm; the combination of portrait super night mode and intelligent pixels further enhances the selfie effect at night; and the rear camera, which is the main selling point, uses a quad camera system.

realme includes a 64-megapixel super HD main camera, an 8-megapixel 119-degree super wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel 4cm macro lens, and a 2-megapixel portrait lens, as well as photo support for composite multi-frame technology, Super Night View 2.0, Super Glow, and video support for real-time portrait depth of field, super anti-shake, and 960fps slow motion.

realme X2 adds a super wide angle button at the top of the image interface, and users can quickly switch to super wide angle mode in the lower left corner of the “more functions” menu; the camera’s default composite 16 megapixel image output, 64 megapixel ultra HD mode must be switched in the lower left corner, and the lower left corner also provides Super Night View, 960fps slow motion, and other functions. 960fps slow motion and other functions realme X2 has quite fine detail output in 64 megapixel mode, and clear details can still be seen after 100 percent zoom The built-in AI Scene Assist and Super Dazzle modes improve image quality and make it easier for users to shoot; the 8-megapixel super wide-angle lens has a viewing angle of 119°, and photo distortion is almost invisible to the naked eye thanks to DLDC’s double anti-distortion engine.

The 2.0 megapixel macro lens adds rich detail and full color to photos as close as 4cm. Appearance: both value and thinness The realme X2 lacks the elevated camera found in the realme X, instead opting for a waterdrop screen design. The FHD resolution 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED screen supports DCI-P display color gamut and DC dimming. The realme X2’s waterdrop screen design maintains a 91.9 percent screen-to-body ratio.

The flagship’s CoF packaging technology reduces the phone’s bottom to 4.3mm, explaining the realme X2’s high screen-to-body ratio. In an exclusive media interview following the meeting, realme product director Wang Wei stated that the use of water drop screen is not to save money, but rather to address user feedback about realme X being too thick and other issues, prompting realme to adopt the water drop screen design.

realme X2 employs Huiteng’s latest generation of G3.0 light-sensitive under-screen fingerprint, which can be unlocked in as little as 0.36s. Huiteng enhances the security of the under-screen fingerprint by incorporating a new security filter that converts the projected light from the entire green vibrancy spectrum to white light. Furthermore, the realme X2 includes a face unlock function, which is more convenient to use in conjunction with fingerprint unlock and password unlock assistance.

The under-screen fingerprint effectively reduces the openings on the realme X2’s back for a better overall look and feel. The realme X2 phone is available in two colors: silver wing white and star map blue. realme brings the “wormhole light pattern” developed for the X2 phone over a year ago, with multiple layers of light and shadow refracting the mysterious texture of parallel worlds, presenting the user with two parallel universes that never intersect.

I purchased the realme X2 in silver wing white, which has different angles of light, creating a rich visual effect of layers. The phone retains a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Type-C port at the bottom of the middle frame. The power button is on the right side of the frame, the volume +/- button is on the left side of the frame, and the top has a noise-cancelling microphone.

Smooth ColorOS 6.1 and VOOC 4.0 flash charging The realme X2 runs the most recent version of ColorOS 6.1, which features flat icon design and near-native interaction, greatly improving the user experience. Breeno can also provide users with personalized services based on their behavior and information preferences. The phone’s smoothness is determined by its hardware specifications.

The realme X2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC and up to 8GB of RAM, allowing it to run a variety of applications and games smoothly. The Rabbit score in the regular runtime test is 256212, HTML5 score 34147, AI evaluation score 84543; GeekBench 3 runtime score, single-core score 2257, multi-core 6272; AndroBench for flash memory runtime score, sequential read/write score is 501.82MB/s, random read/write score is 136.35MB/s, 21.42MB/s, performance is basically in line with cell phone expectations.

To enhance the gaming experience even further, realme X2 added FrameBoost 2.0 and TouchBoost 3.0 engines to Hyper Boost 2.0. FrameBoost 2.0 predicts potential phone lag and improves game stability by 18%; TouchBoost 3.0 improves system touch performance by 35.2 percent by leveraging six major software technologies. Furthermore, realme will continue to work with game developers to optimize the underlying TOP 100 games, providing users with a better GameBoost.

realme X2 is equipped with a large 4000mAh battery and supports the latest VOOC Flash Charge 4.0, which provides up to 30W fast charging. It takes 19 minutes to charge 50% of the phone, 30 minutes to charge 67 percent, and 75 minutes to fully charge the phone.

realme X2 continues the brand gene of “dare to go beyond the level” as a cell phone brand, making realme X2 very competitive. At 1599 RMB, the realme X2 is the best transition product before the arrival of 5G, with its excellent design, good touch, 64MP main camera, Snapdragon 730G, 8G RAM, and other powerful configurations.
