The Realme X2 Pro delivered an incredible performance to price ratio, but that may have come at the expense of camera performance, with the phone only managing to equal two-year-old flagships like the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X on DxOMark's charts.
Ricci Rox,

OPPO's high-value brand, Realme, launched its flagship phone, the Realme X2 Pro last year. The phone has now made its way over to DxOMark, where it was tested, and put out a rather disappointing performance.

The Realme X2 Pro earned an overall score of 95. That's pretty poor, by DxOMark's standards, and places the phone on the same level as two-year-old flagships like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X. However, it's joined in that tier by more recent phones like the LG G8 ThinQ and Sony Xperia 1, so it's not all bad.

The phone was hailed for its high performance to price ratio, as it delivered a Snapdragon 855+, UFS 3.0 storage, a 90 Hz AMOLED display, and a total of five cameras for roughly US$500. Of course, spec sheets never tell the whole story, and it would seem that the Realme X2 Pro may have cut corners on the camera side. 

In any case, the rest of the phone holds up incredibly well, so owners are unlikely to have any regrets—especially when they can improve camera performance by simply installing a Google Camera port.
