Poco has chosen the main competitor Poco X2: a detailed comparison

Poco today introduced the X2 model, which was the first project after the “lord of speed” Pocophone F1. As expected, the new product has become a kind of clone of Redmi K30 4G. This also applies to the design with a quad-camera stylized as a coin acceptor, and a dual front-facing screen and Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides, and the composition of the camera itself with a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor at the head, and hardware with a Snapdragon 730G at the base. Poco repeated the 120-Hz display with Full HD + resolution (aspect ratio 20: 9) and HDR10 support, and even promised to support high refresh rates in gaming applications, which the Redmi K30 4G cannot boast of. Despite the independence of the Poco brand, not the creation of Redmi will begin to “kill” the new Pocophone. During the presentation, a parallel was drawn between the Poco X2 and Realme X2. It is them that we will compare today. Go!

Poco has chosen the main competitor Poco X2: a detailed comparison

Let’s start with the obvious, what Poco herself drew attention to. Today’s newbie offers a 6.67 ’’ display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, while its competitor offers a simple 6.4 ’’ 60 Hz panel (both Full HD +, 20: 9 and 19.5: 9 respectively). Both manufacturers build the positioning of their devices around the 64-megapixel main camera, but in the case of Poco X2 we are talking about a newer Sony IMX686 sensor, and Realme X2 is an analogue of Samsung’s GW1. The advantage of this or that option cannot yet be determined (a frontal comparison will show), but usually Sony sensors show themselves better than competitors, so Poco highlights it in its strengths. Both devices have 8-megapixel widths (120 and 119 degrees for Poco and Realme, respectively), and two 2-megapixel sensors for depth of field and macro (2-10 cm for Poco, 4 cm for Realme).

Continuing the theme of cameras, the 32-megapixel front-end Realme X2 Poco contrasts the 20 + 2-megapixel dual module mounted on the screen (again, real tests will show who is who). Poco also boasts a more capacious battery (4500 mAh versus 4000 mAh), and with faster charging than its competitor, despite the fact that Realme claims more power (30 vs 27 watts). This was probably made possible by the presence of a water cooling system to remove heat not only from the Snapdragon 730G chipset, but also from the battery. Well and, of course, the price. For Poco X2 they will ask for 15,999 rupees (14,230 rubles) for the basic version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM, while the tesque from Realme is estimated at 16,999 rupees (15,130 rubles) for the 4/64 GB variant (on the slide above the error : 18,999 rupees for the top-end Poco X2).

It turns out Realme loses on all counts? Not really. Let’s start with the most controversial – design. User feedback on the design of the Redmi K30 turned out to be ambiguous: For many, the solution with the same “coin acceptor” is too strange, so the classic Realme backdrop with an unusual texture may be more interesting. The same goes for the camera hole: a drop-shaped cutout is preferable for many users. In addition, Realme is slightly more compact and lighter: 158.7 x 75.2 x 8.6 mm and 182 g versus 165.3 x 76.6 x 8.79 mm at 208 g.

In addition, Realme X2 is ready to offer an AMOLED panel with a built-in fingerprint scanner on the screen, while the Poco X2 has an IPS screen and a scanner at the end. AMOLED is a more energy-efficient solution that can offset the advantage of Poco in battery capacity (along with the difference in size), and the on-screen finger scanner will add a touch of modernity or something.

Well and most importantly: Realme X2 received an NFC module for contactless payment via Google Pay, while for some reason the competitor did not receive this opportunity. It is this moment that can be decisive in the question of the choice between these two models specifically. So far, this choice is only for buyers from India, and in Russia only the analogue of Realme X2 on the Snapdragon 712 chipset is officially sold (neither Redmi K30, nor even Poco X2 is presented). However, if you still pay attention to them, Redmi K30 and Realme XT are able to reveal the essence of two rivals for the hearts of users. Which side are your sympathies on?
