The key is Realme GT has risen to the high-end of Qualcomm, the most powerful they have launched so far. This means that it integrates the Snapdragon 888 , having tested the model with 8 GB of RAM for this analysis (there are up to 12 GB). It has all the hardware ingredients so that it runs smoothly and has no trouble loading anything. However, it is not the maximum RAM of the model but it is enough to give a good experience.
The material (vegan leather) helps to dissipate the heat in that it does not reach the cover directly, noticing it more at the edges. Neither is a worrying heating noticeable, it happens when we play for a while and with quite normal temperatures, also contemplating this "pro" mode of maximum performance that it offers for games. Temperature playing with the balanced mode (left) and pro gamer mode (right) of the Games Space.
The Realme GT has facial recognition and an on-screen fingerprint reader . Face reading works very well in a bright environment, however recognition will not work in the dark until you activate the automatic lighting that is available in the settings, so that the entire screen is illuminated (like a flash) so that the system has enough light to perform the scan. It is a standard recognition that does not work in the dark and does not work with a mask, but in general it is quite fast in any conditions with some lighting.
The main camera integrates a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor , accompanied by a 119-degree wide-angle and 8-megapixel sensor and a macro lens with a 2-megapixel sensor. The front camera integrates a 16 megapixel sensor with a lens with f / 2.5 aperture. We do not see optical stabilization or optical zoom, more expensive features than those that the high-end range that is farther away from the adjusted prices does usually boast.
The camera app translates into a typical tabbed browsing and certain shortcuts, which is quite intuitive. Among these we see that of HDR, which as we will see is very useful, and that of artificial intelligence , much more questionable.
Easier and comfortable video recording mode for the user to see what resolutions are available depending on the lens., Realme finally brings us a direct access to the choice of resolution, however it hides it in a little eyelash as a shutter pull that does not always respond well to interaction. The app works fine, except for some slowness when processing the shots at night.
The positive thing about the results with these cameras are that the automatic processing tends to be realistic . With a good colorimetry, a correct white balance, a realistic saturation or at least that it is not exaggerated and that in the end there is a balance without too much contrast or drama, and this is the case of the main camera and the wide angle of the Realme GT in automatic mode and in a favorable scene. In certain back lights it has favored shooting with the wide angle lens , but it usually produces more noise and less sharpness than shooting in automatic (with the main lens).
The 5x we already see contours a little in oil by comparing with the digital zoom at 2x however, it serves to bring the scene very decently we do not have to expect a realistic shot in terms of the contours. Its use is more recommended during the day, if above all we want to obtain a valid photo and it is not simply a matter of bringing something closer like binoculars.
The wide angle is at a lower level than the main camera either in automatic or at 64 megapixels. At night, in the wide angle, the night mode is almost mandatory . The decrease in sharpness is compensated for by a slightly over the top touch, but it certainly flatters the scene and even achieves a bit more dynamic range than HDR. The night mode also helps to recover some contours that in the automatic mode are diluted. And HDR would have to flee, so better to have it in manual.
Main cameras have maximum apertures that allow for good bokeh to create a good photo in this style without the need to minimize the focus distance, with framing that makes a lot more sense. In this case we have more of the same: a camera with a very low resolution sensor that can not even defend photos in broad daylight and does not usually give too usable photos.
The portrait mode usually gives us photographs with a decent result at the cropping level, however the blur is quite false. We can improve it by reducing the artificial bokeh , although in this case always before the shot (there is no depth editing in the tool itself).
The front camera gives us good daytime selfies, with a good level of detail and also very realistic colors. In automatic mode, it gives us balanced photographs, with a high point of contrast in back lights, but generally well defended.
Realme Gt front Auto Hdr The HDR, in this case, does not penalize, but adds that extra dynamic range and improves the interpretation of the shadows.
The portrait mode is too exaggerated (and be careful with the beauty setting , which is activated by default and even if we remove it from the automatic mode it will stay in the portrait). The blur can be regulated, but the problem is in the clipping, sometimes very drastic even with a background that differs in depth and color palette with the foreground.
During night , the front camera gives a considerable downturn, especially with portrait mode. The night mode is a good incentive because it gives somewhat artificial photographs, it recovers a detail that is missing even in a moderately lit scene.
What we stand out from the video of the Realme GT is the stabilization in the daytime shots . Despite not being optical stabilization, it works very well to avoid shaking and make the frame changes smooth.
We see that there is quite a bit of equality in terms of contrast, exposure and colorimetry in terms of 4K, 1080p and wide-angle shots (only 1080p resolution available for this), although this is not entirely positive. The shots are somewhat overexposed and the dynamic range is reduced, although more or less close to reality in that we do not see over saturation or exaggerated contrasts. The quality drops a lot and even the stabilization.
The problem with the wide angle, seeing that even the footsteps cause a noticeable destabilization and there is a lot of noise when the lighting is medium-low. Reflections from streetlights can also cause artifacts.
The Realme GT comes with 4500 mAh , which today can be considered a medium capacity battery speaking of phones with dimensions like this one. The star is more the fast charge, which in this case reaches 65 watts and the charger is in the box.
The average talk time is about 24 hours , which is quite good for this battery, which does not have a capacity that stands out on paper considering the market. Almost the best thing has been to see that the refresh rate does not determine the experience so much; In the PCMark battery test we see very similar results, and the maximum autonomy we have achieved (with normal use and with little multimedia / games), of 31 hours, has been with 120 Hz.
Regarding the charging time, 65 watt charger that is included and one that is sold separately of 50 watts. The charging time is respectively 45 minutes and 55 minutes respectively.
The stereo is appreciated and it is something that is quite noticeable if we compare it together with OnePlus 8T that does not have it. The experience improves although, as in this case, it is not a maximum quality audio either.
Speaking of the volume, at 100% it is very much with up to 110 decibels in the immediate output of the speaker, which translates into about 82 ambient, which is neither convenient nor necessary. You have the best experience with around 70% since, at maximum volume there is a drop in quality.
If we connect headphones we will have the option of Dolby Atmos, activated by default and convenient to maintain because it gives that touch of depth that the audio through speakers did not have. The stereo via headphones is also correct and the experience is much better than through speakers, however there are not many additional adjustments.
Anything that is offering great benefits for a price that is below the average is positive for the consumer, especially if we are talking about those who seek to taste the highest potency honeys. But side B are the concessions that have to be made for this lower price starting point, so it may not always pay off.
The Realme GT can boast of several aspects power and refresh rate. Also from a construction material that manages to be at the intersection between practicality and resistance. A fantastic color speaking of the model in yellow.
But there is something more lame in photography and sound, which go hand in hand with a screen that performs well, but that does not mean anything different from much of the mid-range and part of the high range. It is a mobile designed for those who prioritize having the most powerful Qualcomm and a refresh rate above the average, as well as a fast charge with one of the highest standards in the market.
