Here is the RealMe 2 review, this handset comes with an attractive price tag of Rs. 8,990 and is powered by Snapdragon 450 processor. Now this hardware is not as powerful as the RealMe 1 was but, is it still worth the price? lets find out.

Many of my followers were asking for the RealMe 2 review, unfortunately like with the case of RealMe 1, I had to buy the handset from the first sale ( I did not get the review unit). The RealMe 2 first sale was on 4th September, and took some days for the delivery. Well here is the RealMe 2 review.

I bought the RealMe 2 Red color variant, I was deeply impressed by the RealMe 1 Red hence a logical choice. Inside the box you will get the handset, SIM ejector pin, user manual, warranty info, data cable USB to micro USB, silicon case and travel charger 5V/2A. SAR value of RealMe 2 as mentioned on the box is 0.305 head and 0.720 body.

realme 2 quality

At first when I saw the specifications (with Snapdragon 450 processor) I was really not impressed but the price was still good. Reason being all Snapdragon 450  powered handset that I had reviewed did not support dual VoLTE, surprisingly on the RealMe 2 dual VoLTE worked!

RealMe 2 Design

This is the key attraction. You will fall in love with the design on the first look. The Red is as beautiful as it looked on the RealMe 1 handset, same build and finishing and the glass on the back that creates a darker Red shade. The RealMe 2 I can say look way better than the RealMe 1, well same color / looks but on the back there is diamond cutting reflection that looks awesome, check the video review / images to get an idea.

Looks great, feels comfortable to hold and operate. You get a bigger screen area to work thanks to the Notch above. But that’s not it. Once you switch on the handset the UI specially the default wallpaper on this Red RealMe 2 is pretty impressive, it follows the same Red color pattern part of the screen (on the top) is red, looks really cool and blends well with the overall design and color.

RealMe 2 Specifications

– 3GB/4GB, 32GB/64GB and 256GB micro SD card support Triple Slot ( Dual 4G Sims + Dedicated Memory)
– 4230 mAh Li-ion Battery
– 6.2 inch HD+ Display, with Notch
– 13MP + 2MP Dual Rear Camera | 8MP Front Camera
– Finger Print and Face Unlock
– Single band Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM radio

RealMe 2 Performance

For normal use the handset is really good. However if you are a heavy gamer then you might not like this handset, it is powerful but not really for gaming, though you can play high end games in lower graphics quality.

The Snapdragon 450 is well known however it is not as powerful as the MediaTek chipset that was used on the RealMe 1 handset. However with SD 450 and with 4230 mAh battery you will get an impressive battery life. It is all about balanced performance.

Handset heat up is under control. The finger print sensor is really fast almost instant and so is the face unlock. Check the video review to know more about it.

The 4230 mAh battery will take about 3 hours or so for a full charge and on a full charge you will get one and a half to two days of battery life based on your usage.

There are triple slots, so you get a dedicated micro SD slot. Dual VoLTE works that came as a surprise to me, but it really works, check the video review for demo.

No issues with networks, call quality is pretty good and even the speaker is loud and clear.

RealMe 2 camera performance

There is 13+2 MP dual cameras on the back and a 8MP camera on the front. Camera quality is above average. The camera specially the rear does capture natural bokeh shots in outdoor conditions, normal mode also works great outdoors. However in low light conditions the camera quality is not at all impressive – check video review or go though the sample images listed below.

The handset can shoot FHD videos. Front camera can also shoot in Portrait mode, but edge detection is not that perfect, however works great most of the time.

Verdict

Though the RealMe 2 hardware is downgraded compared with the RealMe 1, the handset is still worth buying. Though RealMe 1 users might want to stick with the 1 unless they love the notch. So overall the RealMe 2 Notch smartphone is an excellent buy for Rs. 8,990.

You can buy the handset from Flipkart (wait for next sale) – http://fkrt.it/Elur0KNNNN

  3. Sir Does it make any difference between 3gb and 4gb variant? I can afford,Do i need to buy 4gb variant for high end gaming?

      1. For day to day usage, Instagram, Facebook, chrome, shopping, other apps and multitasking for 2 years will 3gb be enough?

        1. Yes Bro, 3gb is more than enough. I am having 3gb version of Realme 1 and m happy as it can easily handle everything even high end gaming (due to its processesor, P60) and my Brother having Realme 2 and it also good for day to day uses (except high end gaming).

  7. We appreciate your efforts to buy the handset and post the review so fast.

    Realme is really a big fool not to send you a review piece even when you helped realme 1 with ‘fatafat’ review & posts when others were criticizing it for ‘bad ram management’

    1. Realme 2 bro, My sis have Y2 and my colleage have Realme2. As gogi ji said, if you are not a heavy gammer, go with Realme 2 @8990, its best mobile. I ordered this mobile on first sale, but after 3 hours, Flipkart cancelled my order because of heavy ordered placed.. Now I will place order on 11-Sept.

      1. I would have gone for Redmi Y2 because of its better camera and EIS in recording videos, and stabilization really works. But I’m not a gamer.
        If you are not into video recording much for short movie clips, than Realme 2 is much better and …. its design isss purr love !!?❤❤

  13. Gogi please ask realme guy’s how they managed to get dual 4g if it’s software then companies fooling us 2yrs and now sell phones to tell isme dual 4g hai. ??

    1. Realme, I mean Really… should I ask them, they don’t even bother to send me review unit, no reply.. and you think they will answer this.. he he..
