Realme is creating a furore lately. The brand has officially entered Europe and is one of the manufacturers to watch out for. Even Xiaomi knows that.
This is because your business format does not differ much from what Xiaomi is. In fact, it was this format that gave it the notoriety it has right now. Bring good smartphones at a great price.
Realme software updates far from Xiaomi
However, Xiaomi is unique in upgrading its equipment. Incidentally, the brand may not even bring the latest version of the Android system, however, gives users a new "air" with the User Interface update. An example of this is MIUI 11 that has reached dozens of smartphones without the latest Android update.
Realme today revealed when their smartphones would receive Android 10 and disappointment in the face of this situation increased. For example, its flagship "Realme X2 Pro" will only receive Android 10 in March 2020. Inadmissible for a brand that wants to compete for the same customers as Xiaomi.
We have to point out that Realme X2 Pro, for example, is a super high end with unique features and a simply fantastic price.
By the way, in this same information we have smartphones that will only receive Android 10 at the end of 2020. At a time where Android 11 will already be on many smartphones of competitors, namely Xiaomi.
The ecosystem is also a factor to take into account
Xiaomi's ecosystem is also another consideration. However, in this sector European users do not have much to talk about. Installing the Xiaomi app on any Android smartphone has basically the same possibilities as having a Xiaomi smartphone.
However, the same is not true in the Asian market where Xiaomi is strong in its services. Including cloud and extra features between this cloud and your smartphones.
In short, more than one ecosystem would like to see Realme working as well as Xiaomi on upgrades. The biggest problem is certainly OPPO's ColorOS. Which is heavily modified and which most European users could well do without.
