Perfect Gamer Phone Realme GT
The Realme GT is a killer gaming phone, particularly if you want all the power you can get but don’t want an absolutely gigantic mobile. This star performance isn’t just down to the top-tier Snapdragon 888 processor.
The punchy OLED screen and stereo speakers all add to the experience. Getting that sort of power at the Realme GT’s price is a real headline-catcher too. However, there are some sacrifices.
The rest of the design is pretty standard for a modern phone but there’s a nice little strip of yellow on the power button to match the back and it’s small details like this that I really like.
I’m glad Realme doesn’t go down the route of slapping huge letters on the back – ‘DARE TO LEAP’ on the 8 Pro, for one cringe-worthy example, but it’s odd that it doesn’t say ‘GT’ here. If I bought a GT model of a car, I’d expect the badge on the boot.
Despite having a large screen, I found the GT to be slim and easy to handle. It’s a fairly modest 186g partly thanks to a plastic frame. You can’t have everything at this price so although there is a headphone jack, the Realme GT offers no form of IP68.
6.43in, Full HD+
120Hz refresh rate
360Hz touch sampling
At 6.43in the GT’s screen is about the average size for a phone in 2021 and the same is true of the Full HD+ resolution (1080×2400) and 20:9 aspect ratio. It’s very tall so bear this in mind if you have small hands.
It’s a SuperAMOLED for solid contrast and popping colors along with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. That’s high considering even 90Hz in the mid-range is a decent step up from the standard 60Hz.
64Mp main camera
16Mp wide-angle selfie
Cameras are often where mid-range and budget phones take a dip in quality, despite the lens and megapixel counts that will be shoved in your face. However, Realme has done a pretty good job here, even if the selection of four cameras isn’t the best combination ever.
Things start with a 64Mp Sony IMX682 sensor (f/1.8) which as you’d imagine pixel bins to 16Mp by default. This is the camera you’ll use the most but there’s also an 8Mp ultrawide sensor (f/2.3) alongside it with the third rear option being a now typical 2Mp macro lens.
Battery Life & Charging
65W fast charging
No wireless charging
The Realme GT has a large 4500mAh battery and although doesn’t make any claims about two-day battery life on the website, that’s certainly what I’ve found. A 48-hour period of my typical usage left me with 20-25% juice left.
Software & Apps
Realme UI 2.0
The Realme GT is up-to-date when it comes to software, shipping with Android 11 and Realme UI 2.0, recently launched on the 8 Pro.
