Full comparison between Poco X2 vs Realme X2- Who’s the winner?

Before comparison and the release of Poco X2, Realme X2 was undoubtedly the best premium mid-range smartphone under Rs.20, 000 in the Indian market. But still, it’s very hard to choose 1 out of these 2. So let’s compare these 2 and find which one is better in comparison to the other.

Design & Display

So, the first impression is the last impression. The Realme X2 is approx. 180 grams and Poco X2 is above 200 grams in weight and it’s slightly bigger than Realme X2. If you have bigger hands then you can comfortably hold this Poco X2 otherwise Realme X2 is not a bad choice. Design of both these smartphones are pretty cool & shiny from the rear side and both smartphone comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection from front and rear side also, so the built quality is very similar. Realme X2 comes with 6.4 inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED 60Hz display with 19:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2340 pixels and 402PPI whereas Poco X2 comes with 6.67 inch Full HD+ 120Hz IPS display, 20:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2400 pixels, and 395PPI. Poco X2 has a bigger display size and 120Hz display means a higher refreshing rate. So the faster and smoother is Poco X2 but Realme do well in case of colors.

Battery Backup and Charging

Both are slightly different than the other. Poco X2 has a 4500mAH non-removable battery with 27W fast charging. Realme X2 has 4000mAH non-removable battery with 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging. Both these devices took 1 Hour 10 minutes to fully charge and provide 1-day battery backup in normal usage.

Sensors and Fingerprint scanner

Both the smartphones are less with all the sensors but the main difference is the position of the fingerprint scanner. Realme X2 has an In-display fingerprint sensor but in case of Poco X2, the fingerprint scanner is mounted on the right side which is very trendy. So this is the users’ choice to give preference to the side mounted or in-display sensor.


Realme & Poco both have quad-camera setup which is 64MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP of camera support. The primary sensor is 64MP Sony IMX686 in Poco and Realme uses Samsung GW1 sensor. Also a difference on the front side, realme provides 32MP selfie camera whereas Poco got dual punch hole camera which is 20MP + 2MP. So the color reproduction and saturation while capturing images and recording videos in realme is better than Poco. On the other hand Poco captures natural color images and with better detailing. Realme Records UHD 4K video @ 30fps, FHD 1080p @ 30/60fps & 720p @ 30/60fps while Poco records UHD 4K @ 30fps & FHD 1080p @ 60fps. Realme X2 has also a plus point which is the bokeh effect while recording videos which is not available on Poco X2.

Both these devices come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor which is specially made for gaming with Adreno 618 GPU. The Operating System of Poco X2 is MIUI 11 based on Android 10 with a little bit Ads. On the other hand out of the box Realme X2 has ColorOS 6.1 but Realme UI update comes very soon, which is based on Android 9 (Upgradable to Android 10). Poco X2 supports WiFi calling but out of the box Realme X2 don’t. But the CEO of Realme Mr. Madhav Seth said that they will provide an update for the WiFi calling feature in all devices.

All the variants you can see below for both these devices:

Advantages and Preference

  1. Realme X2 captures good photos and Poco X2 records good videos.
  2. If you’re OK with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor then Poco X2 is made for you but if you need an in-display sensor then Realme X2 is there for you.
  3. Realme X2 has a dedicated micro SD slot to upgrade your storage.
  4. Poco has bigger 120Hz display and IR blaster whereas realme displays good colors to the user.
  5. Price is also the biggest factor. Poco X2 is cheaper than Realme X2.


I know you are very confused to choose 1 out of these 2. Let make it simple. Read the above advantages and preferences again and you will definitely get your answer. As I said earlier it's very difficult to choose any 1 out of these 2 because the display, design, quad camera, processor which provided on this price point cannot be provided by any other smartphone brand so its all depends upon the user and brand lover.
In my opinion if you want a Slimmer phone, lightweight, Amoled display, bokeh effect on video recording, under-display fingerprint scanner with always ON notification feature then you can go with Realme X2.
If your priority is 120Hz refreshing rate bigger display with a punch-hole design and you want to experience a mobile with a unique fingerprint scanner position then you can go with Poco X2.
