One of the most-awaited phones since late last year is the Realme XT 730G, also called Realme X2 in India. This phone was heralded as Realme’s answer to the Redmi Note 8 Pro. So, what is it about this model that should make you choose it over any other Redmi, Samsung, Motorola, etc.? Let’s find out.
Price and availability
The price point of this phone lies close to the Rs.20,000 mark. The Realme XT 730G costs Rs.16,999 for its 4GB RAM+64GB storage model, Rs.18,999 for the 6GB RAM+128GB storage model, and a little above that for the 8GB RAM+128GB storage model.
The great news is that the processor isn’t the only upgrade you get in this new model. On paper, it is an excellent bargain. It’s available in Pearl White, Pearl Blue, and Pearl Green shades. You can buy it online from the Realme India official website or any ecommerce platform such as Amazon or Flipkart. If the extra few thousands are not allowing you to stretch your budget above the 15-20K mark, do not worry. You can easily buy this mobile on EMI without a credit card. All you have to do is choose a flexible EMI plan such as Tata Capital’s Consumer Durable Loan.
The X2 design
In terms of looks, the Realme XT 730G is similar to the Realme XT. The display is a 6.4 inch full HD+ SAMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080pX2340p. With small bezels, its screen-to-body ratio is a good 91.9%. Its aspect ratio is 19.5:9. While the front is a Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the same goes at the back too.
The camera module at the back is also the same as that of the XT. The phone’s dimensions are 158.7 mm X 75.2 mm X 8.6 mm and its weight is 182 grams.
Getting to the facts now, the Realme X2 carries the ultimate trump card of this category, a Snapdragon 730G SoC. Phones that are much mightier such as the Oppo Reno 2 and the Samsung Galaxy A80 feature this processor. This processor has 8 Kryo 470 cores along with an Adreno 618 graphics unit. This phone was made for gamers. All RAM+storage variants of the phone have an LPDDR4X RAM. For gamers, there is a whole system consisting of Dual Anti-lock Game Antenna, Game Space, and Game Assistant.
Just like the Realme X2 Pro, this handset also carries Realme’s own vibrant Color OS 6.1. Software specifications are also pretty similar to the X2 Pro. The most attractive software features are dark mode coupled with Google Digital Wellbeing and a lot of shortcuts and gestures to play with.
