Realme 2 pro Gaming
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE (Artificial Intelligence Engine) processor with LPDDR4X RAM & Adreno GPU 512, which is excellent for mobile gamers.
This is the part where it beats all other major smartphones under Rs 20000, it’s a sleek and stylish smartphone. The dewdrop design, which consists of 15-layer laminated technology and featuring a glossy visual effect.
The company is saying that this smartphone provides a firm, smooth grip which I really doubt because it was a bit slippery without the back cover.
Realme 2 pro camera review
The has 16MP + 2MP rear camera with some good camera features, I clicked some pictures with using it, the portrait mode stands out among others.
16 MP AI Beauty Selfie camera, I’m never really a fan of this technology where you pictures are beautified to the extreme level. But the quality of selfies clicked are par with all standard camera smartphone.
According to me, this phone is one of the best camera smartphones under 15k in India.

3. Not compatible with most of the VR Headsets because of it’s 6.3-inch screen.
