Update – 05/06/2020: This review was first published on March 6, 2020, after testing a vague unit of realme X50 Pro. Later, at Andro4all we were able to analyze the last type of mobile. The analysis was updated to reflect the required changes.
The story of indeed As a portable phone maker, it is undoubtedly worth a read. In 2018, when the smartphone market seems to be more crowded than before, this small company from China was able to manage, with the support of the BBK Electronics conglomerate, get a significant portion of the cake Following is a simple formula to understand as difficult to achieve: and to give phones are powerful and moderately priced.
The product catalog of the product contained mid-range models until the realme X2 Pro, its first used model, in which the company indicated that and you can compete large market. And after only a few months, the company was ready to introduce the world a second time to salute, a realme X50 Pro 5G.
This new member of the “X” family maintains the same philosophy provide very detailed cutting details at the lowest possible cost, and it takes you far beyond being the most desirable phone in the company. A call now, which passes through our analysis table. This is a realme X50 Pro:

Best Realme X50 Pro
Software Ratings / Price
The use of the Snapdragon 865 processor is blamed by some of the top leaders of the big brands for rising prices on new phones for the new generation. It is therefore not surprising that the price of this realme X50 Pro It also increased significantly from the previous X2.
Anyway, we're talking about phone that comes with the latest Qualcomm platform, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and storage configurations from 128 to 256 GB, in both cases with UFS 3.0 technology – you must not forget that, last year, the expensive realme X2 variant that gave UFS 3.0 – all the starting price is less than half the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the model where this X50 Pro shares some features.
But there is one more: realme has released its latest model with a 4,200 mAh battery with the support of one of the newest charging technologies on the market, which allows access 65W power using the charger mounted in the box.
And the list of top-notch specs goes a long way: Super AMOLED display at 90Hz refresh rate
It also acknowledges good marks for physical appearanceWell, not without some consideration. Aluminum and chassis glass feel it is particularly strong and durable, and both buttons and edges around the body of the phone give it the impression that it is perfectly finished as it can be a phone of a hundred euros more.
Now, though its price seems to mean the opposite, the realme X50 Pro is not a portable platform for all budgets. Somehow, over the past few years we have moved from mobiles of up to 150 grams, to models like the X50 Pro that are close to a quarter mile. And believe me when I tell you that, when you've been working longer or less for a while, your arms will notice you.
Performance and the whole experience
Come strong, stay moist. Obviously Hardware / Price ratio the device is its main asset as it was in the realme X2, but the fact is that in this case we get it a phone that is able to provide you with a lot of fluid, fun and consistent that the previous model, whose software, was acquired as an asset on OPPO devices, did not seem to coexist in parallel with other features of the phone.
After using the Pixel 4 XL for over a month I came to the conclusion that Google has been trying to sell a very good mobile phone that was not eye-catching by having an attractive technical page that looks less like its competitors. In the case of realme, the opposite is true: looking at its history of specification, it's easy to imagine that everything is a beast, and start using it to recognize that, or numbers are not everything, in many cases the numbers fail.
The latest chip is made by Qualcomm, which is added to the latest memory technology available in the market make this device to fly any work placed before him. It also helps that Realme UI, the company's newest layer, has made it into a diet that lowers weight to become a trend is a simple, compatible and ultimately fast software that ColorOS – even though the looks and extras that are closely associated with the backdrop still exist as the bulk of the layers created by companies of Chinese origin.
Device independence too It's amazing and even though it does not reach the level of the market's main competitors in this sense, It doesn't matter that for 40 minutes it may be that the phone is fully charged. Also, it is fair to say that, for maximum use, 4,200 mAh of X50 Pro can be dedicated until the full day with 6 hours of screen time on.
The worst of the Realme X50 Pro
But there are some things that have not changed much compared to the realme X2 Pro, and I'm afraid that one of them the mirror. The factory also bet on AMOLED panel, with a refresh rate of 90 hertz, Full HD + resolution and 6.44-inch diagonal. And even though it's a panel signed by Samsung, you don't expect the quality compared to the panels used by the South Korean company in its Galaxy free.
Let's start with the best: the screen-generated colors are bright and fun, and offers opportunities to choose between different color spaces to scale the panel to suit the user. Plus, the brightness level is more than decent – in my tests, it far outweighs the Pixel 4 XL in this case. And there is no complaint about the variance, or this should be taken lightly on most devices with an OLED display.
Besides all that, the experience using this realme X50 Pro reminds me of the way OnePlus 7T could test it a few months ago: the screen tones start to vary greatly when the viewing angle changes, then appears again a certain imbalance of pixel brightness by reducing the brightness to levels closer to 20%. Needless to say, "this problem" comes from the last non-final device unit, and in a new version we were able to test in May.
These are Realme X50 Pro cameras
If you read our review of the realme X2 Pro, and especially the section dedicated to its cameras, I'm afraid you can skip this part of the review on the brand new model: the difference between the two systems is small, and only the i front cameras They have evolved with very little or no important evolution. Either way, it's not safe to review the complete configuration of the cameras the phone has.
Like many manufacturers, Realme has decided to bet on a system as flexible as possible. And because of this it gives context six different lenses. From the back, we get a 64-megapixel primary camera f / 1.8 that, through a process known as Pixel Binning, you are able to combine pixels together to produce more detailed and light photography.
Next to it are a An 8 megapixel ultra wide angle sensor, It is compatible with a "telephoto" sensor that offers up to 5x hybrid zoom, and up to 20 digital zoom. Finally a 2-megapixel camera emerges from the scene whose purpose is to capture the information to achieve the maximum sensor at that time. take photos in “photo mode”.
In addition to phone software updates, the camera app hasn't changed compare to the one we saw in the previous version: the various options available in type the carousel at the bottom, and the shortcut bar above, among other things, allows Activate HDR mode, effect "bright color", art filters or flash.
For its part, the front of the phone is where most of the changes to this photographic program, have now been made two front cameras, 32 and 8 megapixels, the second being a "wide area" that allows kidnapping selfies group.
Date, drawings and night mode behavior
As with realme X2 Pro, X50 Pro camera performance is good, but not great. High resolution of the large sensor translates to pictures with good levels of detail and his tones don't stray too far from the facts, which is good news especially if you consider that a good number of Chinese origin producers prefer a overused lead to images filled with circular colors that do not correspond to actual events.
They're not so good, though, two "accessory" cameras with high sensitivity. A wide-angle lens with great size, while useful, is slightly damaged lack of color flexibility related to the main camera, and often produce more muted tones. The "telephoto", meanwhile, provides a best result depending on the image quality, although a lack of stability requires having an iron pulse – or something to lean on – to get the expected picture.
The data mode mode also doesn't make much sense compared to other competing models, and it does drawings with origins that are not naturally used and vertical cutting. As you attach, I have to say camera software it often looks smooth on the facial features even after disabling the "beauty" mode built into the camera app.
At night, the main camera is the only one that gives a good result, although it must be said that night-time photography is not the main force of this method of photography. Fortunately, there is a "Night Mode" that will help us capture more light from the scene if we have the patience needed to keep the phone steady while you take a picture.
The front cameras, completely upgraded compared to last year's X2 Pro, give a good result in many cases
Realme X50 Pro: Andro4all's last thoughts and feelings
At a time when the four price tags seem common in the top phone segment, phones like this realme X50 Pro are more needed than ever. Leaving aside its more expensive version, which surpasses the barrier of 700 euros, it is a bet on a new Chinese company star betting model a phone that offers a future professional repertoire, is able to provide first-rate experience in similar categories performance or independence, a multifaceted and elegant photographic application, as well as software that improves on ColoradoOS is available from the moment you start the phone, despite the disadvantages compared to other experiences.
Therefore, the realme X50 Pro can be the most affordable accessory phone on the market… In a world where the realme X2 Pro wasn't there.
And it's just under 450 euros, the previous star model of realme you remain an undisputed leader in terms of hardware / price ratio, and given that the new version has the same features as its predecessor- see pictures and screen-, betting on the model introduced in 2019 would be a sharper decision than jumping into the 5G bandwagon and paying 100 euros more than realme ask for a new delivery.
Either way, we're talking about a very balanced terminal, it offers more or more of its specific competitors, at a very low price. And without a doubt, it deserves our top mobile marketplace in 2020.
Price and where to buy Realme X50 Pro
A Chinese company confirmed that the realme X50 Pro 5G can be purchased in Spain from mid-May. It will be available both at the company's official store – where it is already possible to buy it in blue or rustic red colors – and in other authorized stores, including Amazon. We will review this item when it is officially sold.
Its price starts from 599 euros model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage – the version we can test – and then from 669 euros a model with twice the internal storage and the same amount of RAM. Finally, there is a version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage which costs 749 euros, a figure that puts us very close large of the league, and in my opinion more attractive than the previous two because of its shortcomings against its other direct competitors.
|Should I buy a Realme X50 Pro 5G?|
|Conclusions||With the X50 Pro, it's actually less complicated and offers a device loaded on the teeth with the most advanced parts on the market, as well as technologies that will be more important in the future than they are today. Although it has flaws and cuts – a few of the cuts, it is also a mark on its goal, as was the case with the realme X2 Pro last year.|
