Realme Q2 and Q2 Pro with Dimensity 800U chips disrupt Redmi hegemony in AnTuTu price-performance charts as the Note 8 Pro finally tumbles out of the top three
AnTuTu has released its latest price-performance charts and it appears Redmi’s general domination has taken quite a hit, with the Realme Q2 and Realme Q2 Pro being just two of the smartphones that have been invading Redmi’s territory. The Realme Q2 has snatched the top spot in the entry-level chart (0-1,499 yuan; US$0–US$230) from the Redmi 10X and in doing so has forced the venerable Redmi Note 8 Pro out of the top three smartphones in that particular table. The base variant of the Realme Q2 is priced at 1,299 yuan (US$199), which is very reasonable for a smartphone with a strong midrange octa-core processor.
The Realme Q2 Pro, which like the regular model also sports a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, doesn’t quite reach the top spot in the 1,500–1,999 yuan (US$230–US$306) table but it does manage to divide the Redmi K30 devices that were previously hogging the top two positions. The Realme Q2 Pro comes with 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage (up to 256 GB available), a Super AMOLED screen (normal variant only has an LCD panel), and can support up to 65 W fast charging. At a price of 1,799 yuan/1,999 yuan (US$276/US$306), it’s easy to see why AnTuTu rates the Realme Q2 Pro so highly.
While the iQOO 5 Pro is still the device of choice in the highest section of the price-performance charts, the 3,000–4,499 yuan (US$459–US$689) crown formerly held by the Redmi K30 Pro Zoom has now been taken by the Lenovo Legion Pro, which is also known as the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel. This gaming-oriented smartphone speeds along with the help of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset and up to 16 GB RAM for those who want a phone that is more powerful than many current laptops. The Lenovo Legion Pro also stands out with its motorized pop-up selfie camera.
