After a long time of waiting, Xiaomi finally revealed the POCO F2 Pro.

The POCO F2 Pro is the much-awaited sequel to the Pocophone F1 from two years ago. It packs almost all the high-end features that a flagship phone has.

The Realme X50 Pro 5G is another budget-friendly flagship from an emerging Chinese brand. Much like the former, it boasts a lot of high-end specs that we rarely see on this price range.

The specs table above clearly shows that the POCO F2 Pro and Realme X50 Pro are some of the most value-oriented flagship smartphones in the market today.

However, due to their price gap, it’s no surprise that one of them has extra features that the other lacks, which makes the price premium worth it. And that’s the Realme X50 Pro.

The Realme device has a fast 90Hz refresh rate display, which makes the interface, videos, and games look smoother and faster. A feature that was surprisingly omitted on the K30 Pro. Thankfully, the latter gets to have a 180Hz sampling rate for improved touch responsivenes.

Going with the X50 Pro also entitles you to a faster 65W SuperDart charger. That’s two times more than the 33W charger of the latter. But to the F1 Pro’s credit, it does have a bigger 4,700mAh battery, versus the 4,200mAh capacity of the X50 Pro 5G.

Realme also nailed the selfie cameras on the X50 Pro. It comes with a 32-megapixel and 8-megapixel ultra-wide front cameras, which can give more flexibiltiy when taking selfies, or group shots with friends. On the other hand, the K30 Pro only has a single 20-megapixel front camera.

The Realme device placed its front cameras on a punch-hole in the screen, while the POCO F2 Pro has a pop-up mechanism. We personally prefer a punch-hole than a moving mechanism that could eventually cause durability issues.

However, we have mixed feelings about the rear cameras. Personally, we prefer the cameras of the POCO F2 Pro. The X50 Pro 5G may have a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, but do people actually use it?

So if you’re an aspiring photographer, you might be better off with the POCO F2 Pro thanks to its optically stabilized 64-megapixel main camera, sharper 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and 8K video recording. Having an OIS improves image quality at night or when shooting handheld.

Oh, and if you still care about headphone jacks, the POCO F2 Pro has it while the X50 Pro doesn’t. But for those who plan to expand the storage, tough luck as both devices lack a microSD card slot.

Bottom line is, if you don’t mind spending more on a Realme X50 Pro, you’d be awarded with a smoother screen, faster charging, and better selfie cameras.

But if the real value for money is what you’re after, you can save money with the POCO F2 Pro and would get the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship processor. As a bonus, it has a bigger battery and, personally, a more usable set of primary cameras.
