Xiaomi Poco X2 vs Realme 6 Pro

Xiaomi Poco X2 vs Realme 6 Pro

Hey guys, as you might have guessed from the title itself. This Review is a comparison between the Xiaomi Poco X2 vs Realme 6 Pro. Now, we’ve got a lot of queries from you guys as to which one of these is a better smartphone.

So here is our detailed comparison yet. What you have to understand is that these two devices are very similar. So it has been a tough choice for me.

However, there is a winner. So please stay glued to your screens for some ten minutes to find out which one wins.


Realme 6 Pro Display:

  • IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
  • 6.6 inches, 105.2 cm2 (~84.7% screen-to-body ratio)
  • 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio Display Resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 Display Screen Protection

Xiaomi Poco X2 Display:

  • IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
  • 6.44 inches, 100.1 cm2 (~83.7% screen-to-body ratio)
  • 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio Display Resolution
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5 Display Screen Protection

Okay, let’s get down with the displaysed first. And this is the part where I think that these phones do equally. Well both are IPS panels have good colors and are high refresh rate ones.

Well higher than standard 60 hertz. I mean, yes, the Poco X2 has a slightly higher 120 hertz screen while Realme is gone with the 90 hertz panel but trust me the difference in real life use is not even a thin line and I am sure if you use these to stay side by side you are not going to spot any difference as well, but I definitely have to give credit to the Poco X 2 display for being slightly brighter and slightly more color accurate apart from that Realme’s native display has a cool tone while Poco has a warmer tone.

But since both of these devices have display settings to adjust that it is not a problem.

What’s interesting is that not only do these devices have a similar Notch cut out, but they have a slight screen reading issue in the same area around the notch. which is visible only upon closer inspection.

So everything else being similar the winner in the display aspect is the Poco X2 because not only does it offer a higher refresh rate display.

It has slightly better brightness and accurate colors as well.


Now moving to the design and looks in my opinion. It’s a very subjective thing.

Both phones have glass backs protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

And there’s a fast and reliable side-mounted fingerprint sensor on both but I think when it comes to smartphone designs Samsung has really nailed it.

However, keeping Samsung out of this comparison the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 Pro both look good but feel a little heavy so I would love to see a more ergonomic design on devices from these brands in the future.

Also when placed on a flat surface you will notice that the camera bump on both these phones makes for a bubbly and uneven Placement so by either of these phones means that you will have to get a good case to talking of bottom emplacement. You get all the buttons on the same side on the Poco X2 while it’s divided between the left and right on the Realme 6 Pro and for me, I think the latter’s easier so display wise both these phones have quite some differences, but in terms of design, well, whichever appeals to you is a good choice because honestly neither of them have any room for complaints so We have it our first day in this contest as things stand the Poco X2 leads the table with two points. Whereas the Realme 6 Pro is one point behind now,


Realme 6 Pro Camera:

  • Primary Camera
  • Quad 64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/1.72″, 0.8µm, PDAF
  • 12 MP, f/2.5, 54mm (telephoto), 1/3.4″, 1.0µm, PDAF, 2x optical zoom

Xiaomi Poco X2 Camera:

  • Primary Camera
  • Quad 64 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1/1.72″, 0.8µm, PDAF
  • 8 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm

  • 2 MP, f/2.4, 1/5″, 1.75µm, depth sensor

what’s also different here is the camera setup?

Realme has a more versatile camera setup than the Poco X2 Poco has gone with the same old depth sensore where as Realme has added a more useful telephoto lens, which is definitely a superior set up. So, let’s see how the cameras perform.

Realme 6 Pro

Against each other starting with the macro lens. Unfortunately, both are quite bad, but I never have many expectations with a 2-megapixel macro sensor.

So that’s all right, even if the manufacturers had not included this sensor. I don’t think it would have been much of a problem for portrait images. We will be sport. Oh look a lot livelier than Poco, Poco X2 is sort of inconsistent from the HDR in background to subject Focus. I truly think that Realme does it better.

Or even though there is no dedicated lens for it.

Now. We have a telephoto lens in the Realme 6 Pro replacing the depth sensing camera that we usually saw on Realme devices.

It is a two time optical zoom lens that can go up to 20 times digital and I have to say that to five times the details are captured properly.

And since you don’t have that on the Popo X2, Realme 6 Pro simply has a better Zoom ability Ultra wide-angle shots on both the phones look similar at a glance but once you zoom in you will see that Poco maintains details better than viewer may also Poco x 2 shots are a bit sharper for normal images. I liked Realme 6 Pro’s colors.

It balances the colors and vibrancy better than Poco X2, but details HDR and sharpness are better in the Poco X2.

I think this definitely has to do with the superior Sony imx6 86 tensor that Poco has deployed in this phone because it seems Balance all aspects of photography properly selfie wise I would go for the Realme 6 Pro without any doubt because it produces a more pleasing skin tone Poco x 2 gives off a rather red Hue in selfies, which does not look good at least to me even for portraits healthy images. I prefer the real me six Pro because it’s HDR works better and like with the normal images the subject looks good.

Finally getting to the nighttime images Poco X2 has has better detailing as real nice images look a bit muddy in terms of exposure in night mode. Both of them do a good job.

However in both normal and night mode for Xiaomi Poco X2 performance is more consistent overall in the photography Department as well. There does not seem to be one definite winner in some aspects the Poco X2 does better whereas other times the Realme 6 Pro seems to do a better job.

However, I think I will give a slight Edge to Realme 6 Pro here just for having a more. Versatile camera setup this means that in our score sheet Realme 6 Pro has leveled with the Poco X2 with both of the phones standing at two points each now for videos, I would go for the Poco X2 because they are stabilized even at 4K at 30fps. Realme 6 Pro on the other hand is not at all stabilized at 4K and even at 1080p 30fps.

You can notice some slight Goebbels so Poco is the better. A choice of the tube when it comes to vlogging now Poco wins the video race and once again takes the lead in the comparison.


All right. Now, let’s move on to the performance which very honestly has been a very challenging thing for me to judge as you might be aware. There Realme 6 Pro comes with the new were Snapdragon 720 G while the Poco X2 uses the Snapdragon 7:30 G.

Well in my review of the Realme 6 Pro, I briefly discuss the performance of these two devices. This is an said that these chips it’s were very similar in performance.

However, I have been testing these phones further first in my speed test involving 10 light and heavy apps. I found that the Poco X to finish the task 8 to 10 seconds faster than the Realme 6 Pro. Similarly. I further tested the render speeds of these devices where I rendered the same 1080p video in 720p from both the phones here to the Poco X2 took the lead finishing the task around 15 seconds faster.

So these results are evidently favoring the Poco X2 for having better CPU performance, even though the Realme 6 Pro is a very close second now for gaming I couldn’t tell major differences like on other tests both the phones gave an average of 40 FPS while playing in HD graphics and high frame rates in games like PUBG and call of duty and with other live games. Well, both of these phones do a fantastic job.

Also many of you guys asked. If any of these phones have a heating problem, so when I played PUBG back-to-back for around six times, I found both of these devices to have kept their calm and not heat up as much.

I mean there was a slight rise in temperature around the camera modules, but nothing so alarming so for performance the Poco x 2 is slightly ahead because it is more optimized for tasks like multitasking and app opening and since it also has liquid cooling mechanism its thermal performance is superior to that of the Realme 6 Pro with all that the scoreboard now reads Poco X2 at Four Points and the Realme 6 Pro at two points Poco is definitely on fire.

For software. You have the new realme UI running the show on the Realme 6 Pro while the Poco x 2 runs on MIUI 11 and both are based on Android 10 experience-wise. These are very future packed and optimized despite being a heavy skin on Android you get tons of bloatware on both but there is the option to get rid of them. Despite the similarities. I find the real me UI to be better-looking MIUI needs a slight visual change in my opinion which could be the case with the new MIUI 12 similarly. Both companies have a very good history of providing regular security updates as a result. I am once again compelled to declare a tie between the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 Pro. Now I have the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variants of these phones. But with the Realme 6 Pro you get a dedicated microSD card slot which the Poco X2 lacks as it uses the second Sim slot for extra storage.

Additionally my storage Benchmark tests showed the Realme 6 Pro to have a slight Edge to so this round goes to the Realme 6 Pro and the score stands are Poco x 2 at 5:00 and the Realme 6 Pro at 4:00.


Okay. Now it’s time to talk about the battery life and we know that both these devices have different battery capacities.

The Realme 6 Pro has a 4,300 milliamp Hour 1 while the Poco x 2 has a slightly bigger.

500 milliamp hour battery while testing the battery life of these phones. I kept the resolutions at the highest and my tests resulted in the Realme 6 Pro having a better battery life than the Poco X2 evidently the 120 hertz display consumes a battery a little more than the 90 hurts of the rear Mystics Pro and also the Snapdragon 720 G is a bit more energy efficient.

Similarly both the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 Pro have fast charging supports and you get the active Chargers inside the boxes itself, which is great news.

However, despite a higher power delivery of 30 watt promise book charger of Realme the 27 wat Poco X2 charger is still very close.

But since Realme 6 Pro has a slightly better battery life, I pick it as the winner in this department. This means that the Realme 6 Pro has made a comeback and has leveled the points with the Poco X2 and both of them stand at Five Points each.


Now hopefully we have a tiebreaker with our next and final test which is for the extras such as speakers call Quality headphone output and the haptic feedback about the speaker’s I think the audio from the Realme 6 Pro is slightly better because it sounds comparatively more balanced Poco X2 and the other hand does good with vocals but instruments sound a little just a little subdued but both devices do not distort in high volumes and do a fine job except for slight Edge in real me speaker performance Likewise, I found the haptic feedback on the Realme 6 Pro to be better than the Poco X2.

Realme’s feedback just feels more polished and less aggressive.

And as far as the call Quality and headphone performance is concerned. I think both of these devices do an equally good job, but with better speakers and haptic feedback at work realme takes the lead in the final round of the match.

So with that final, Over so let’s take a look at the scoreboard. The bull Poco X2 has come in second with Five Points while the Realme 6 Pro has snatched the victory with a point more.

But even so if you consider the overall aspects of a great smartphone the Realme 6 Pro has taken the lead with a mare one points, so objectively I should be telling you to go for the Realme 6 Pro instead of the Poco X2.

However one also has to consider that the Poco X2 is a very close.

So in the end, I will put it this way. If you are looking for great all-round cameras, and if you think that the realme UI is better than the MIUI then the Realme 6 Pro is a better deal for you.

But if you’re more comfortable with MIUI and you want that extra point in performance, then as our tests have shown the Poco X2 is a better choice.

So that was our comparison of the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 Pro do let us know Which one would you pick as a daily driver.
