There are No issues & problems with screen quality Realme X. It is Very bright of 448 Nits to see in direct sunlight Like Samsung Galaxy A70.
Speakers and Headphone Jack:
In Realme X, Realme Used their traditional Single Speaker System which is present at the bottom of the Smartphone. While This Speaker System is very loud. In terms Of Loudness, it is very loud Which is Comparable with a Mini Bluetooth Speaker. these Speaker does not have support to Dolby Atmos Or Smart Amp but the sound output is good and Produce accurate Sounds. Earpiece performance is also Awesome
Coming to Headphone jack and earphones, In terms Of Headphone Audio, Realme X and Realme 3 Pro are Equal. the headphone jack provided with an Optimized and clear sound without any Software Support like Dolby Audio and OZO Audio and it is direct Copy of Realme 3 Pro Headphone jack. the headphones are not present in the Box Due to Competitive pricing. but with some good pair headphones for listening to music and for taking voice calls clearly.
Build Quality :
Realme X is Build with a Polycarbonate frame on side and front and back of the device is protected with Gradient Plastic Back. it provides a good look and feels not Premium Because it is made with Plastic body and Polycarbonate Frame. Through this Realme X was Build with Polycarbonate Frame and Plastic Body there are no issues of creakiness in the Frame. well built and the bezels are shrunk down to place a 6.53″ AMOLED screen. the Bottom Bezel part looks Like Oneplus 6t Which is very Slim.
Rear fingerprint scanner:
Realme X Features an Optical In Display fingerprint sensor which is present on the Bottom of the phone. By performance, it is Very fast and accurate to recognize the fingerprint of the user.
Realme X has face unlock feature. It works Nice in Normal Conditions Very Quickly and And Securely but in Night Conditions it will work 50% Screen brightness to recognize the user. While It is A pop-up Style Mechanism the face unlock Will be a Bit slow To raise the camera and recognize the face. By using Face unlock it Can Spoil Easily. Better Not to use face Unlock On Realme X
Realme X feels very light with 6.53″ Screen and 3765 mAh battery equipped. The weight balance of Realme X is done very well. By Reducing, Weight Realme X can be used by one hand very Easily.
My Realme X lasted a Full Working day with heavy usage and at the end of the day, I had 21% of charge left in the phone which is good for a 3765 mAH Battery. We got 5.3 – 5.7 Hours of Sot( Screen on time) on using Mobile data which is good. you will get above 6hr Battery life if you use on WiFi.

Here the Realme X comes with the Oppo’s Colour OS UI Based on Android 9 Pie. we can see Dual apps and other features in this UI Android 9 Pie. we can Also see the unnecessary apps that are wasting Ram on the phone Better To UnInstall Them. By having Colour OS we can not Expect 2 years of Android Version Upgrades and 3 years of security updates on Realme X Which is Bad Thing. If they Decided to provide The Version and Security Upgrades they might Be Very Slow.
My Realme X managed to do day to day tasks very well like the Realme 3 pro. there are No issues and problems with the User interface and there are no heating issues with Realme X. We cannot notice Easily While It heats Due to Plastic back.
