In terms of wide-angle proofs performance, Realme Q2 is also very good. The machine is equipped with a 119° ultra-wide-angle lens. Compared with the standard mode, the field of view is almost doubled. It can also take more shocking photos in a limited space. . Judging from the above proofs, the buildings in the ultra-wide-angle mode are more upright, and when shooting large scenes, they can present a broader and shocking perspective. At the same time, combined with the advanced DLDC dual anti-distortion engine, it effectively avoids the picture distortion caused by the wide-angle and presents a more natural and real effect.

In addition, realme Q2 supports up to 4K resolution video recording. Both front and rear cameras support EIS video anti-shake function, and the rear camera supports "UIS super video anti-shake + UIS super video anti-shake Max" dual super video anti-shake function Mode, combined with AI algorithm, can get amazingly stable video images. At the same time, UIS Super Video Stabilization Max uses a wide-angle for image cropping, with more amazing anti-shake effect and more field of view, which is comparable to professional sports cameras. With instant recording SLOOP and new movie-level series functions, you can feel the charm of mobile movie cameras.

5000mAh large battery + 30W smart flash charge, long-lasting play

Although Realme Q2 is a sufficiently thin and light 5G mobile phone, it is still equipped with a 5000mAh super-capacity battery, and it also supports the new 30W smart flash charging, which is backward compatible with 20W flash charging and 15W PD fast charging, and supports Bright screen charging, charging while playing. It is officially claimed that a mobile phone with a large 5000mAh battery can be fully charged within 65 minutes. We conducted battery life and charging tests.


△ Endurance test

After the test, the remaining battery power is as high as 82%. Based on this calculation, Realme Q2 can basically meet the online "eating chicken" for 10 hours, online video watching for 11 hours, online reading for about 20 hours, and continuous video calls for 9 hours. All 5G mobile phones are at a very good level, and they can be maintained within a day of moderate to heavy use.


△ Charging test

In the charging test, the machine can be charged to 24% in 10 minutes, 63% in 30 minutes, and it takes only 59 minutes to fully charge, which is faster than the official claim and is sufficient to deal with any emergency scenario.

It is worth noting that the advantage of realme smart flash charging is not only in fast charging, but also with overcharge protection, overvoltage and overcurrent protection, overtemperature protection, extreme situation protection, and built-in safety IC chip. At the same time, I feel more at ease.

to sum up:

As a new generation of "dare to leapfrog" a thousand yuan new machine, after Realme X7, Realme once again uses the brand new MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor on Realme Q2, which has sufficient performance strength on the same price model.
