1. Realme 2 Pro

Realme 2 Pro is a Flipkart exclusive smartphone. It comes with a 6.3 Inch display with dewdrop/waterdrop notch and a Full HD Plus screen resolution. The display has perfect brightness and viewing angles and you would enjoy using it. The back on the phone has a plastic(polycarbonate) body but has a shiny finish which looks like a glass finish. The build quality is decent and the phone is easy to hold and use as it weighs only 170 gm.

It is powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor which is a very powerful chipset for a phone under 15k and scores around 1,30,000 on the Antutu Benchmarks. It comes in 3 variants with RAM and Internal storage configuration as 4GB-64GB,  6GB-64GB and 8 GB- 128GB variants. The performance is super smooth and top notch even with heavy games and high multitasking. Also, there is a dedicated SD card slot to expand the storage up to 256 GB along with proper from dual sim usage.

On the camera side, we get a dual rear camera with 16 MP f/1.7 and 2MP(depth) sensor which clicks perfect and crisp both day and low light images. The portrait shot edge detection also works very well. On the front camera, we have a 16MP f/2.0 sensor which also clicks beautiful images and also supports portrait shots. There is AI beauty mode for both the front and rear camera that recognizes the scene and changes the contrast, exposure and colour for images to look better.

Realme 2 Pro supports both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both the methods are very very quick and work accurately.  The battery on this smartphone is a 3500 mAh rated and lasts for around a day or a bit more with medium usage. The charger in the box is 5V 2A which is not a fast charger and the charging port is a Micro USB and not a type C.

Realme 2 Pro runs on Color OS 5.2 operating system based on Android Oreo 8.1. The UI is not the best here and has bloatware that does not give the best user experience. Apart from this, all is perfect with this Realme 2 Pro smartphone for the price range it offers. This phone does not get any IP rating so you need to protect it from dust and water.

Realme 2 Pro is the latest king of the budget smartphone with superior features and specification compared to other phones in the under 15000 price range.

2. Vivo V11 Pro

Vivo V11 Pro is the successor of Vivo V9 which was launched earlier this year. Vivo V11 Pro is a big upgrade over V9 and brings flagship features to the midrange. The phone is lightweight and easy to hold. It is not a metal body which helps to keep the weight low. The back has a color gradient and is black on the upper half and blue on the lower half. The back looks really nice. 

The display on the front is 6.4 inch Super AMOLED panel. Vivo has added a very small notch which houses the front camera. The bezels are thin all around and the display of body ratio is over 91% which is incredible for a midrange phone. The display panel is gorgeous with punchy colors and good viewing angles. The phone looks very premium overall.

Under the display, there is a fingerprint sensor. This is a 4th gen under-display fingerprint sensor. It is still not as fast as normal fingerprint sensors but it is close. There is also IR face unlock feature so you can unlock the phone with your face in low light conditions as well. 

The camera on the back is dual pixel 12MP sensor with 5MP depth sensor to take portrait mode pictures. The front camera is a 25MP sensor. Both cameras take excellent pictures in daylight conditions and good pictures in low light conditions. The camera performance is comparable to the flagship phones. The video recording isn't great though. We hope Vivo improves video recording with a software update. It would be great to see EIS and 1080p at 60FPS on the V11 Pro.

The V11 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor which is a powerful midrange chipset. There is 6GB of RAM to handle the multitasking and 64GB of storage. The phone performs well with no lag in the day to day usage. You can also play heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 without any issues.

The battery inside the V11 Pro is 3400 mAh and would last for a day on medium usage. The display is AMOLED so you can use dark wallpapers to increase the battery life. 

Overall, Vivo V11 Pro is a great smartphone and we are impressed by the performance and features. If you are looking for a smartphone at a price of around 25k, this is the phone you should buy.
