Today we look at two of those phones that we can locate in the best-equipped mid-range, very close to those affordable premium phones. We face the Realme X2 and the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite, two very good endowed telephones and that also offer us a fairly adjusted price, the first most veteran, the second newcomer to stores.
We have faced these two phones because they offer us an excellent performance and price ratio, and they also belong to a range that increasingly has more followers, that of those mid-range phones that stand out in all their facets without making a huge outlay. Also two phones that express better than any other that new fight between Realme and Xiaomi for the mid-range throne.
Screen and dimensions
These phones offer us two large screens, the Realme of 6.4 inches and with Full HD + resolution, with notch in the form of water, as well as Super AMOLED technology. For its part, the Xiaomi has a similar size, 6.47 inches with Full HD + resolution, notch in the form of a drop of water and AMOLED technology, and in this case with HDR10, so we are talking about two phones with a series of characteristics on the screen that are very similar to each other.
The dimensions are 158.7 x 75.2 x 8.6 mm on the Realme with a weight of 182 grams, while the Xiaomi measures 157.8 x 74.2 x 9.7 mm and weighs 204 grams. Thicker and heavier the Xiaomi, probably due to its bigger battery.
There is also a lot of equality in performance. With two equal processors, in both cases it is the Sanpdragon 730G, which offers excellent results for demanding games.
The units that we compare today have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage in the case of the Realme. And 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that is not expandable.
In this aspect there is also quite equality, with quad cameras in both cases. In the Realme X2 we find a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, 2-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel depth. In the Xiaomi there is a main sensor of 64 megapixels, 8 megapixels ultra wide angle, 2 megapixels macro and 5 megapixels deep.
Therefore the distribution of the sensors is identical, except for the depth that has a little more resolution in the Xiaomi. In front of the Realme’s camera is 32 megapixels, while in the Xiaomi has less resolution, 16 megapixels.
Battery, connectivity and software
In this case, there are important differences, especially in capacity, since while the Realme has a 4000mAh battery,l Xiaomi surpasses you with a 5260mAh. They both have 30W fast charge.
Both also have a fingerprint reader integrated in the screen, as well as bluetooth 5.0, NFC connectivity for making mobile payments, as well as a USB Type-C connector. They both have Android 10 as an operating system, with realme UI and MIUI 11, so there is also a lot of equality in this section.
Price and conclusion
The truth is that we are facing two very similar mobiles, and it is only certain details that differentiate them. At the request of the Realme X2 has double the internal storage and more RAM memory, as well as a better selfie camera and a more compact size along with a lighter weight. The Xiaomi stands out for a camera with a higher quality depth sensor, as well as a battery with much more capacity, being one of the largest on the market, but in reality it does not have important differences with the Realme X2.
Buy the Realme X2
Buy the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite
The real difference between the two currently is found in the price, which is less than 300 euros in the case of Realme, and 349 euros in the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite. That difference should be enough to lean towards Realme. Of course, in its favor the Xiaomi has almost one more year of updates, because we remember that it has just arrived on the market, while its opponent did it in September 2019.
