Realme 2 Pro: Initial Impressions
Our primary point of interest in any phone is its performance – and as an extension, its processor. Realme 2 Pro sports a Snapdragon 660 processor which has a dedicated Artifical Intelligence Engine and claims to have improved networking and battery life – and naturally stands high on our list.
Design-wise, the first thing you will notice with the device is the water-drop notch which, although uninspired, looks beautiful. Realme really came through on what was said during the launch of their first mobile phone – that the design of their devices is high on their priority. The phone also doesn’t feel bulky or heavy and is comfortable to hold and looks good.
The Color UI still needs improvements and could be lighter. With our initial usage in the experience lounge, the phone isn’t blazing fast but the okay-ish.

With an introductory price of Rs.6,999, Madhav states that this phone will be on sale from 11th October on Flipkart and will be having exciting offers during the Big Billion Days.
Offering a Snapdragon 450 at this price is really worth your money and though we cannot really complain at the price, a 2GB/16GB variant severely compromises the number of apps you use and the general performance of a phone. The recently launched Realme 2 is a good alternative if you’re looking for something in-between the two phones launched now.
During our hands-on with the device, we felt that the Realme C1, unlike the Realme 2 Pro, which still runs on Color 5.1 OS is better optimized for the device and seems fluid. The phone looks pretty basic but
