Despite it is just an IPS panel, the display of the Redmi K30 looks way more interesting. Unlike Oppo F15 and Realme X2, the display of the Redmi K30 is HDR-compliant. Further, it boasts a very high 120 Hz refresh rate and, according to the latest reports, Xiaomi is planning to release an update bringing the refresh rate to whopping 144 Hz. Last but not least, Redmi K30 brings a wider diagonal and a dual punch hole. On the other hand, both Realme X2 and Oppo F15 offer a more trendy AMOLED panel, as well as an in-display fingerprint reader, while the biometric sensor of the Redmi K30 is side-mounted.
Specs & Software
Thanks to their Snapdragon 730G chipset, Redmi K30, and Realme X2 are able to offer higher performance than Oppo F15, there is no doubt about it. Both pack up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of internal storage with the fast UFS 2.1 technology. With the Oppo F15, you get an inferior Helio P70 chipset and just 128 GB of internal storage (still UFS 2.1). Redmi K30 is the winner here because it is the only coming with Android 10 out of the box, while Oppo F15 and Realme X2 are still based on Android 9 Pie.
Despite the lower resolution of the main sensor, the camera of the Oppo F15 looks more interesting than Realme X2 and Redmi K30 due to the presence of a monochromatic sensor which should boost the photo quality. However, we will have to test it thoroughly to see the result. For now, Realme X2 is more convincing on the paper due to its 64 MP quad camera and its 32 MP selfie snapper.
Both Oppo F15 and Realme X2 come with a 4000 mAh battery (4025 mAh for the Oppo F15), while Redmi K30 is equipped with a bigger 4500 mAh unit. That means Redmi K30 lasts more on a single charge, but the difference is not huge since it has to manage a less efficient display. With a power of 30W, Realme X2 has the fastest charging technology.
