Realme 2 Pro review: What’s good?
Realme 2 Pro features a laminated glass design. It has a polycarbonate chassis covering the perimeters that offer better grip on the phone. Realme 2 Pro flaunts an all-screen front-fascia with a small dewdrop-like notch on top that gives an aesthetic appeal.
The notch houses the front camera with earpiece right above it and sensors placed on the left side. The phone comes with a dedicated microSD slot which is located on the left side above the volume buttons while the power button sits on the right side.
Ergonomically, the phone is quite good with fingers comfortably resting on the volume keys and power button. A mono speaker grille, micro-USB port and 3.5 mm audio jack sit at the bottom part of the phone. On the rear side, you will find a circular shaped fingerprint sensor and slightly protruded dual cameras, which are aligned horizontally.
As for the display, Realme 2 Pro sports a 6.3-inch full HD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It has a screen-to-body-ratio of 90.8 per cent. With bezels trimmed minimally from all sides and a small cutout on top, the front panel offers extra real screen estate to consume content. The front panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The display is quite bright and produces vibrant colours with sharp text details. The phone is Widevine L1 certified, which means you can stream Netflix content in HD. Further, Realme 2 Pro offers adjusting the colour temperature which you will find under Display & Brightness settings.
