Realme 2 Pro Work + Gaming Performance, Battery Life + Recharging Performance
Work Performance – PCMark
We tested the Realme 2 Pro’s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browsing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.
|Work 2.0||Realme 2 Pro||Honor Play||Honor 10||Samsung Galaxy A7 2018|
The Realme 2 Pro (Malaysia | Indonesia) was superb in this test, with its Snapdragon 660 beating even the Honor Play and Honor 10‘s Kirin 970 flagship SoC. It was, amazingly, 45% faster than the the new Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 in this test.
Gaming Performance – 3DMark
We tested the Realme 2 Pro’s gaming performance using 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.
|Ice Storm Unlimited||Honor Play||Honor 10||Realme 2 Pro||Samsung Galaxy A7 2018|
|Graphics Test 1||208.9 fps||206.2 fps||147.4 fps||136.5 fps|
|Graphics Test 2||132.8 fps||119.5 fps||94.3 fps||45.8 fps|
|Physics Test||65.3 fps||68.0 fps||64.7 fps||44.5 fps|
The Realme 2 Pro (Malaysia | Indonesia) had pretty good gaming performance. It was only about 20% slower than the Honor Play and Honor 10, which boast a 12-core GPU; and a whopping 62% faster than the Galaxy A7 2018‘s dual-core GPU.
Battery Life – PCMark
We then tested the Realme 2 Pro’s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.
|Work 2.0||Samsung Galaxy A7 2018||Honor Play||Honor 10||Realme 2 Pro|
|Battery Life||10 hours 25 mins||9 hours 56 mins||8 hours 56 mins||6 hours 58 mins|
Despite its rather larger 3,500 mAh battery, the Realme 2 Pro (Malaysia | Indonesia) had a battery life just shy of 7 hours. Note that this is not just screen-on time. It’s running the Work 2.0 benchmark over, and over again, for 7 hours!
The new Samsung Galaxy A7 2018, in comparison, has a 50% longer battery life even though it only has a smaller 3,300 mAh battery.
A major reason is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. It is a powerful mid-range chip, but built on the older 14 nm process technology. That means it consumes more power than newer chips built on 10 nm or even 7 nm process technologies.[adrotate group=”1″]
Battery Recharging Performance
The Realme 2 Pro comes with a 10 watt fast charger. Let’s take a look at how fast it recharges the 3,500 mAh battery.
Its battery life : recharging ratio of 3.9 : 1 is also average. A rule of thumb – for one hour of battery life, charge it for 15.5 minutes.
The fastest recharging happened up to the 85% level. This took just 68 minutes. Then the recharging speed slowed down, and it took an astounding 54 minutes to top up the remaining 15%.
