I was thinking to put it right in competition with Oppo, OP, Xiaomi, Asus, LG, Pixels of the same time.

Set the timer and turn the phone and that's it ×1000 better result with rear + gcam

So its a valid comparison. A more valid comparison would be to the Iphone SE as the pricing of the X2 is more comparable to that phone.

that's all

It's surprising that they got this low score. May be they didn't pay enough to DXO.
And comparison to a 3 gen older iPhone X is so lame. Isn't this supposed to be RealMe's fake flagship material?

Never really understood the need for a high quality selfie camera... I mean yeah, if I'm doing a video conference I want the other person to see me, but things like color balance or texture... If I just really need to snap a high quality photo, why not just use a rear cam?

Besides, I'm pretty sure 99% of times people just take selfies to post to some instagram where the images are compressed anyway...

What a surprise, trying to make smaller and smaller camera to make smaller and smaller notches and holes giving mediocre results, it was sooo unexpected that things like that would happen !
But then peoples want underdisplay selfie camera...

There is only TWO solution to have a good front camera :
Bezel or pop up, the latter being the only currently available and viable solution to have front camera AND fulldisplay.
Well there are more solutions, but those two are the solution that peoples hate the least...
