In less than eight months of inception, Realme, the sub-brand of Oppo has garnered a lot of popularity owing to the four affordable smartphones. Now the CEO of Realme, Madhav Sheth, took to Twitter and confirmed that the company would be rolling out a new software update to the Realme 2 Pro in less than a week with improvements to the selfie camera and battery while gaming. Several Realme 2 Pro users are complaining about the poor front and rear camera performance on the Realme 2 Pro and the good news is the update is coming very soon with fixes. This tweet was posted by the CEO on Sunday stating that the update will be rolled out in a week’s time, so expect it to be rolled out by the end of this week.
Realme 2 Pro: Issues Faced by the Users
The Realme 2 Pro is one of the best value for money smartphones available right now, but as seen with many other phones launching these days, the software seems to be half-baked. There are several issues faced by the users with the primary one being the overexposure on both front and rear camera images. Next problem is the navigation gestures aren’t that smooth as we saw on Xiaomi smartphones.
As the CEO posted on Twitter, another issue which is faced by several users is battery optimisation. Some users on Twitter posted that the battery drains very quickly even when the camera app is opened, and while gaming, it drains even more. Lastly, as seen with various Oppo smartphones in the past, the Realme 2 Pro is also suffering memory management issues, thanks to the ColorOS software which takes up 2GB RAM just for system services. And some users are even facing overheating issues while gaming. Even the Realme 1’s 3GB RAM variant faced memory management issues when it launched.
Realme 1: ColorOS 5.2 Update Is on the Cards
On the same tweet, the CEO confirmed the company is working hard on bringing the ColorOS 5.2 update to the Realme 1. “RM1 color os 5.2 update we are trying to line up immediately after this update,” posted the CEO in the tweet. For the unaware, the first smartphone to boot the ColorOS 5.2 is the Realme 2 Pro. The ColorOS 5.2 update brings a whole new interface, new app icons, background colours and more.
Realme has added a new feature called Smart Bar which enables to switch between apps, transfer files, reply messages, or take screenshots while playing games or watching a video. And yes, the ColorOS 5.2 has AI baked into it and the company is calling it as ‘Smart Cleaning.’ This feature analyses app usage and will automatically suggest to shut down apps that haven’t been used for long so that it can maintain speed and save battery life. As of now, the CEO posted that the company will release the update in a few weeks. ColorOS 5.2 will enhance the overall user experience on the Realme 1.
