Night mode is a handy feature that we come across in several smartphones of late. If you are using the device at night or in a dark room, you are prone to experience eye strain. In such situations, the Night Shield feature in the Realme 2 Pro will be of help. It will reduce the blue light emitted by the screen thus preventing the eye strain.
You can schedule when the night mode should be activated or enable it instantly. You can do it fro the notification panel or by going to Settings → Display & Brightness → Night Shield.
This feature will put the phone in silent mode without any vibrations. It will only show alerts that you have permitted. A moon icon will be displayed on the status bar. However, the alarm clock and countdown timer will be active. You can choose to allow call and SMS notifications for select contacts. And, it can be enabled manually or automatically on select days and time. You can enable it from the notification panel or Settings menu.
Assistive ball feature lets you navigate from anywhere on the screen. You can add a function or application to the assistive ball as per your preference. You can enable it from Settings → Smart & Convenient → Assistive Ball.

Enable this feature from Settings → Smart & Convenient → Gesture & Motion →3-finger Screenshot. And, you can click screenshots using a three-finger swipe on the screen.
