  3. I have a feeling that Realme company will go in losses and close down just like COMIO. Reason is they are giving so many giveaway units to some youtubers, not sure if they want to sell phones or just do giveways? or are they not sold units? Looks like they are just creating sales hype.

  4. Hello Gogiji,
    I am looking forward to buy a smartphone in range of 40k
    Can you suggest which phone is best. Please let me know asap, planning to buy one in next couple of days

    1. If u know someone from samsung or lg u get a better deal from their flagship phone at this price

  5. IR blaster should become a must have feature on all the mobile devices. After using xiaomi device for a long time, the new realme 1 device feels useless like another ordinary phone.

  9. Helio P70 at this price is really good. The only thing that I’m concerned about is battery.. 3500mah for 6.3in is a bit on the lower side, 4000mah is ideal for this size. I own a realme 1 and the performance is stellar but the battery backup is average. But still i think it’s a really good device considering screen size, resolution, camera, performance and looks.

  10. 32gb variant is true value for money. 64 GB variant is overpriced by 500 rs as Realme 2 Pro 64gb variant is also at 13990. They should have priced 64gb at 13990 only. Even at that price it’s much better than Redmi Note6 Pro and Honor 8X. Now there will be confusion among people which phone to buy Realme U1 or Realme 2 Pro.

      1. Realme 2 Pro is better, for 4Gb config at same price. It is has better processor and better camera. People who but MTK running phones will regret later, they wont get updates and wont have support from developers.

  11. Mediatek processor are not good at all. I have used and can say with my personal experience.

  13. Hi gogi sir,
    Amazon has wriiten this .
    3GB+32GB version can not open Super vivid 2.0 and AI Beauty+ at the same time

    please explain these camara features

  14. Hi Gogi Sir,

    What is the meaning of the sentence written on amazon “3GB+32GB version can not open super vivid 2.0 and AI beauty + feature at the same time” please explain these features in camera effects.

      1. I think it means only 1 feature we can use at a time but what these effects are over pictures taken?

  15. Helio P70 at just 11,999 is unbelievable. This phone is a mid-entry level beast in every aspect.
    This will be a huge success.

  16. Slightly disappointed with the specs, with that processor they could have included better features like fast charging, 4200 battery, SAMOLED screen @ 13999, however happy with the lowest variant price @11999! I want a phone like Lenovo P2 with good camera and style which at present no phone is offering at that price of 10k (bought on special promotion on flipkart).

      1. P2 had the same screen as z2play. Both super amoled made by samsung. P2 also had rocket charging for 5000mah battery. I have that phone. Bought for 12.5k.

      2. SAMOLED, it’s possible. As already mentioned below I bought Z2 play @ just 8999 and P2 @9999. Not only these many Samsung phones at these range have that screen.

  17. 32gb variant is true value for money. 64 GB variant is overpriced by 500 rs as Realme 2 Pro 64gb variant is also at 13990. They should have priced 64gb at 13990 only.
