Design

While Realme X2 Pro does not offer the most impressive design out there, Samsung Galaxy A71 and Redmi K20 Pro look very interesting. The former has a much thinner profile, as well as a punch-hole display minimizing the bezels without the need for a notch. The latter is thicker but it has narrow bezels with no notch and no holes thanks to its motorized pop-up camera. Samsung Galaxy A71’s body consists of a glass back and a plastic frame, while Redmi K20 Pro has a glass back and an aluminum frame, just like the Realme X2 Pro. Which one do you prefer?

Display

If you need the most advanced display, go for the Realme X2 Pro without thinking twice. First of all, it is the only with a 90 Hz refresh rate, so it provides a smoother viewing experience and better gaming experience. It even delivers a higher image quality thanks to HDR10+ and full DCI P3 coverage. It comes with a notch, but it is definitely a better panel. Right after, we got the Redmi K20 Pro with an HDR10-compliant display and a full DCI P3 coverage. But in each case, you get a pretty nice AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint reader.

Specs & Software

Both Redmi K20 Pro and Realme X2 Pro are flagship killers, so they are superior to Samsung Galaxy A71. Realme X2 Pro is the fastest and most powerful one since it is fueled by a better Snapdragon 855+ chipset paired with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. Some may actually like the software of the Redmi K20 Pro more, but due to its lower-end Snapdragon 855 chipset, it is less performing (but still a flagship). Samsung Galaxy A71 is just a mid-ranger, so you should not go for it if you need the highest performance. But it is the only with Android 10 out of the box.

Camera

Unfortunately, we still had no chance to test it, but on the paper, Samsung Galaxy A71 seems to offer the most convincing camera department. We are talking about a quad camera with a 64 MP main sensor, a 12 MP ultrawide lens, a 5 MP dedicated macro camera and a 5 MP depth sensor. Even the front camera is great with its 32 MP resolution.

Battery

Samsung Galaxy A71 wins the battery life comparison thanks to a bigger 4500 mAh unit, but Realme X2 Pro offers the fastest charging technology with a power of 50W.

Price

Samsung Galaxy A71 will hit the global market with aa €469/$516 price tag, Realme X2 Pro starts from €399/$440 and Redmi K20 Pro is available for about €350/$385 thanks to online street prices. In my opinion, Realme X2 Pro is the most awesome device of this trio since it has better hardware and display which you can not often find on a device sold for less than €400. But Samsung Galaxy A71 has a better camera and a longer lasting battery, while Redmi K20 Pro offers a slightly higher value for money due to its more affordable price.
