We’d been hearing about the Realme GT in bits and pieces for a few months. The Realme GT, formerly known as the “Race,” is the company’s flagship device. At a price of under $450, the phone comes with some impressive features such as a Snapdragon 888 processor and a 120Hz AMOLED camera.

Although the Realme GT is a capable phone, it falls short of what one might expect from a flagship smartphone. Except for the device’s quick charging speeds, it provides nothing to praise aside from fast efficiency.
The average cameras are a letdown (specifically, the lens selection) and the architecture is unimpressive. Realme, in my view, can continue to cater to the broad audience it has built up around budget and mid-range phones.
Let’s begin with the aspect of results. The phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, as previously mentioned. It’s a Qualcomm flagship processor that’s built on Samsung’s 5nm chipset. Right now, it’s the chip of choice for flagship Android devices. LPDDR5 RAM is available in 8GB and 12GB capacities. For internal storage, Realme has chosen the UFS 3.1 format.
The Realme GT comes with 3D tempered liquid cooling, which the company says will lower core temperatures by up to 15 degrees Celsius. Realme claims that this is possible thanks to its latest-generation cooling system, which includes stainless steel and copper structures.
To get the most out of this “performance flagship,” you’ll want to use the dedicated GT mode. It promises improved graphics, better visuals, vibrations, and sound effects, as well as faster game loading. Realme also unveiled the latest HyperBoost 4.0 resource management tool, which prioritizes gaming above all other activities.
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
The Realme GT has a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED FHD+ display. The selfie camera is housed in a tiny hole punch on the left. The monitor, for example, covers 100% of the PC large color field and 98 percent of the NTSC color gamut. The phone’s monitor refreshes at a rate of 120 times per second, so it doesn’t miss out on a faster refresh rate.
Deep Sea Blue, Galactic Silver, and Dawn Yellow are the three color choices for the Realme GT. The latter is distinguished from the others by its leather-like finish. It also has a black stripe that runs the length of the handset, beginning at the square camera module and ending at the bottom. As a result, the branding for “Realme” has been moved to the left.
The triple camera system and LED flash are housed in the rectangular camera on the rear. A 64MP Sony IMX682 image sensor serves as the primary camera. An 8MP ultra wide angle camera is also included. The setup is completed by a 2MP macro sensor, which is underwhelming. The punch-hole on the front houses a 16MP selfie camera.
The phone can record 4K videos at 60 frames per second. It can also capture slow-motion videos at 720p 480fps. Realme also included support for Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) but not for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) (EIS). The camera’s features aren’t particularly noteworthy.
BATTERY AND AUDIO
A 4,500mAh battery powers the unit and supports 65W rapid charging technology. This allows the phone to charge from 0 to 100% in just 35 minutes. The Realme GT has dual stereo speakers as well as a 3.5mm headphone port. Dolby Panorama sound effects and Hi-Res Audio are among the other audio features.
