There is a notch display on the front panel, the border of Realme 2 is quite thin compared to the competing handsets in the market. Even though the frame of Realme 2 is made of plastic, still the phone is very strong. You will get dual rear camera setup on the back panel and fingerprint sensor is provided for security. The company name Realme is written on the back panel. As we told you earlier that Realme has now become a separate brand after separating from Oppo. This is the reason why Oppo’s logo was present on the back panel of Realme 1, which you will not see in Realme 2.

There is no fingerprint sensor on the back panel for security in Realme 1. Face recognition technology has been used in this handset. After feedback received from customers, the company has added fingerprint sensor in Realme 2. The sad thing is that the fingerprint sensor present in Realme 2 works slowly and for the first time we faced problem in registering the fingerprint. Like Realme 1, Realme 2 also has face recognition support, it works accurately but it does not prove to be that effective in low light.

On the left side of Realme 2, there is a button to increase and decrease the volume and SIM tray. If you want, you can install two Nano SIMs and a microSD card. The power button is given on the right side of the phone. The button is quite small but at the same time it is also quite hard, due to which you may face some difficulty in pressing it. A single loudspeaker is provided along with the micro-USB port. The first sale of the handset took place on September 4, it will be available in Diamond Red and Diamond Black colors. We have the black color variant for review, as you can see in the pictures. The Diamond Blue variant will be available from October.

our decision

Realme 2’s battery life, unique design, microSD card slot and build quality are quite excellent. The performance and display of the phone is decent, while the camera provides average quality in pictures. The fingerprint sensor present on the back panel works slowly. If you are looking for a smartphone in this budget range then Xiaomi Redmi 5 (Review) and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Cheap variants are a better option. As soon as Realme 2 was launched, the sale of the cheapest variant of Realme 1 was stopped. Let us tell you that the price of this variant of Realme 1 was Rs 8,990. If you can increase your budget a bit then we would advise you to buy the cheaper variant of Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1. Apart from this, if you want, you can buy 4 GB / 64 GB variant of Realme 1. The price of this handset is Rs 10,990. This variant comes with a more powerful and higher resolution display than Realme 2.
