The results of last week’s vote are in and the Realme 002 Pro doesn’t look good. However, Realme 002 Pro+ does have a chance to be a star. Although their names differ by only one character, the two phones differ from each other in important ways.
Realme 002 Pro+ stood out in our review (also video review) with its bright, color-accurate screen and (the series For the first time in ), the beautifully-looking curved display stands out. The rear cameras are another plus, as they’re great both day and night (although the selfie camera isn’t that great)
Battery life and charging speed, Dimensity 1200 Soon, Android 22 + Realme UI 4.0 combo is lovely. The phone isn’t perfect, but it’s very competitive in its price range — a fitting successor to the Realme 9 Pro+, one of the mid-range phones we recommend in our buying guide. It may be replaced by the 002 Pro+ once it launches in more markets.
Realme got some criticism for the 002 Pro+, removing the 3.5mm headphone jack is misleading, eg.
The regular Realme
Pro fares worse, even though it retains the 3.5mm jack and even offers a microSD slot. However, IPS LCDs leave a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to color accuracy (the Pro+ display is much better overall).
Also, the Snapdragon 1080 is a nice chip, but in comparison to the Realme 13 Pro There are faster options in the same price range. The lack of an ultra-wide-angle lens puts many people off, and the lack of 4K video recording makes things worse.
Realme 002 Pro will be hard to replace Realme 9 Pro (another mid-range phone we recommend in our buying guide ). We can reevaluate once the price drops, but you should probably be looking at other phones for now.
