I brought this phone around one week ago. Yeah, there was the realme 2 which just got launched but looking at its specs it was a downgrade (but price was reasonable)
Now coming to this smartphone, it's the best you can get for your money. Top of the line Helio P60 with 4/6 gigs of Ram and a huge storage. The biggest thing is this phone is guaranteed for Android P update.
The UI. It's fluid, and smooth. There are no lags till now. Color OS has taken it's inspiration from iOS and animations look near same with same kind of dialogue boxes with the actual iOS fonts.
Gaming performance is same or marginally less powerful as Snapdragon 636 with 4/6 gigs or RAM. But the plus point is This phone never heated during my usage.
Security - Flawed! There's an IR face scanner which scans your face. But it unlocked on my sister's face 3-4 times when her's even isn't enrolled. Gimmick, plus there's no sign of convenience because there's no Fingerprint scanner. Bump.
The camera : is great, not the best but still ok. It has a lot of features, like filters. The UI is iOS inspired. There's a HQ mode in manual mode which I found is true to it's use.
Now there's something really great if you do a lot of photography on your smartphone on manual mode. The manual mode on this phone includes Shutter speed and iso, exposure and focus. You usually get these things in a 30-40k device likr the OnePlus 5T and 6. But this thing gets you in 10k. That's seriously great.
Built quality is great, feels good in hand and at the same time it's compact. The glass allows better transmission of radio signals for better range
Battery lasts a good 5-6 hours of screen on time
