Realme 2 Pro, a phone we recently reviewed and loved (if I might add) is now available in the 8GB/128GB version on Daraz (exclusively). Although the base variant of 4/64GB was already available for purchase in Nepal for a fair bit of time, the higher end variant was not launched in Nepal yet. And this time the higher end variant with the memory configuration of 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage is now available for purchase starting today. And looking at its price, the phone seems very promising and makes a great “value for money” proposition for itself.

In terms of specs, the phone gets a Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with a surprisingly great camera setup. Despite having a plastic body, the handset doesn’t look cheap by any means. It rather looks elegant when it comes to aesthetics. The front gets a 6.3-inch Full-HD display with a water drop notch. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, and in our testing, it did fair pretty well.
Talking about its biggest competitor, the Galaxy A50, which comes in at Rs. 1.5k premium, offers a better display, larger battery, and definitely a prettier design. It also gets an in-display fingerprint sensor and a better UI (but that’s more subjective). But the Realme 2 Pro does get better cameras, has more RAM and storage. The 128GB storage of the Realme 2 Pro also gets UFS 2.1 storage, which isn’t available on its own 64GB version. This means the 128GB version will, in theory, be faster (app installation, boot times, and more) as compared to the 64GB one.
