    Lots of you folks out there are tired of your old smartphones that don’t run the latest games anymore, or at least not as smoothly as they used to. You are also in a tight spot when it comes to buying a flagship phone, since most of the high-end smartphones are so costly, and way above what you earn in a year (after deducting all the usual living expenses and all that). Hence, we bring you one of the hottest, sleekest, and newest additions to the list of powerful budget phones capable of running the famed and all-around trendy game, PUBG Mobile.

    The newest addition is the Realme 2 Pro, a phone that hosts one of Snapdragon’s mid-range powerful processors, the Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 AIE, with an onboard GPU Adreno 512; and the top model hosts 8GBs of RAM, the first of its kind at this price range. With this CPU, GPU, and RAM, the phone is capable of running PUBG Mobile at graphics setting set on HD; frame rate set to ‘High’ and visuals set to ‘Realistic’. For those who don’t know, PUBG is one of the most performance-intensive games, and for a budget-friendly phone like the Realme 2 Pro to be capable of running it at high settings, is truly impressive. Knowing what the market needs, the developers of the phone’s OS created an app called “Game Space”: an application aimed at freeing up RAM when you fire it up before playing any performance intensive game. If anything, this totally justifies their naming this smartphone a “pro”.

    Often in this price range, when manufacturers are focusing on creating something powerful, they tend to make sacrifices on other things, like battery capacity, design, display, or internal storage and RAM. However, this is not how it is going for the Realme 2 Pro. The phone hosts a 3500 mAh battery capable of running PUBG for quite a while before running dry, and if you are not such a heavy user, it could last the whole day.

    But performance is not the only thing that comes in the package. The aesthetics of the design and display screen make this phone a much more compelling package. Having a screen-to-body ratio of 90.8% with the 6.3 inch IPS LCD display is by itself a remarkable achievement; especially, when the notch in the phone doesn’t cover much of the display with its dewdrop design.  In addition, the phone comes in two nature-inspired colours: the Black Sea and the Ice Lake.

    Right out of the box, the Realme 2 Pro has Android 8.1 preinstalled, but the phone is also ready to be updated to the newest Android 9.0.  The device also hosts a rear dual camera setup of a 16MP main camera and a 2MP focus camera for that blurry effect.

    If you want to buy this phone, we recommend that you get it online from Jumia, as there is a flash sale on the 8GB RAM +128 internal storage at LE 4,990, and the 4GB RAM + 64 internal storage is priced at LE 3,790; both with expandable SD storages up to 256GBs. However, if you like doing it the old-fashioned way, you could head to any retailer and get it for LE 5,390 or LE 3,990, respectively.
