Realme GT 5G: deatailed full Specs. and review comes with Snapdragon 888, 120Hz, GT Mode & More


The performance flagship is here! The realme GT, it’s the uppermost flagship variant in the series. realme has already said, there’ll be 2 different flagship phones, a camera & a performance flagship. This one here is the performance flagship - realme GT! There are 2 more colours available - Silver & Blue. 

Ports & Buttons - Below, there’s a 3.5mm jack. We don’t see a 3.5mm jack in a flagship phone but it’s there on this one. You have a microphone, a USB Type C & a speaker grill. On the right, you get a power on/off button. Above, there’s a noise cancelling microphone.

On the left, there’s a sim card tray on top & volume up/down below it. It’s a dual nano sim card slot.

Display - This is an ideal 6.43” display, because 6.7-6.8” is too huge & this size is small & ideal. It’s a sAMOLED display with 120Hz fast refresh rate & has a 1000 Nits peak brightness. It’s got a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio. So the upper & side bezels are thin. The chin is thin & smaller than average. I forgot to tell you, it has a 360Hz touch sampling rate! You can feel the responsiveness when you swipe, touch, scroll etc because of the touch sampling rate. it’s a performance flagship because it comes on the Qualcomm SD888 SoC. It’s the best out there right now! And there are 2 variants in the phone - (8+128GB) & (12+256GB). And it’s a performance flagship because it has UFS 3.1 storage type & LPDDR5 RAM type. the AnTuTu score is around 7.40L

Performance - You can play games on the highest settings, like Ultra & Ultra-HD. And with smooth, you get a 90FPS mode, especially while playing BGMI. So they’ve specially added the 90Hz refresh rate option & that makes the gaming performance really good! And if you’re playing for longer sessions, then you get a Stainless Steel Vapour Cooling Chamber, that keeps the phone nice & cool.

Battery - For long sessions, you need a bigger battery. So you get a 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging. So with a day of moderate usage, you'll get through the day easily & even if not, the 65W charging goes 0-100% in 35 minutes.

OS UI - It comes with realme UI 2.0 that’s based on Android 11. It has July’s security patch. And there is a lot of bloatware on this phone. I don’t know why, but yes. You also get a virtual RAM boost mode & you can upgrade your RAM up to 7GB. So the 12GB of RAM can go up to 19GB of RAM! But the virtual RAM isn’t like the actual RAM. It has a GT mode, where you get top notch performance as all cores are performing at 100%. So if you want complete performance, then use it in GT mode, it’ll be fun. In other features, you get DC dimming & Smooth scrolling feature as well. You can keep the phone at 60Hz or 120Hz, there’s no 90Hz mode.

Camera - It’s not exactly the highlight, being a flagship phone, it’s performance based. The camera flagship is going to be a different phone so realme didn’t pay attention to its camera. You get a 64MP+8MP+2MP triple camera setup on the rear & a 16MP punch hole selfie sensor. The photos are good but the camera setup could have been better.

Camera Features - You get a dual capture mode, to run both cameras at the same time. You can shoot videos on 4K 60FPS but, with the selfie sensor you can shoot only 1080p videos. It also has an AI highlight video mode. So it’s a decent camera app.

Sensors - You get all the sensors in this phone & there's an in-display sensor as well as face unlock & they’re blazing fast!

Connectivity - You get 7 5G bands, DS+DS(Dual Sim 5G), dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi calling support, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 & NFC. So all connectivity options are on top of the line.

Multimedia - It’s a big highlight, the screen is slightly small, the videos look good on a 6.7”/6.8” screen, but I love the experience on this one, it’s a very nice video viewing experience & viewing angles. You get stereo speakers that are quite loud & have good quality. Overall, if you’re looking for a multimedia phone then check it out, the experience is immersive. And you can enhance the colour & resolution in the UI for a better multimedia experience.

Other Features - You get Widevine L1 support, Camera2api support & the SAR values are within limits. The missing things are - notification light, FM Radio & there’s no IP rating. So this is what the Performance Flagship from realme, the realme GT is all about!

Like they’ve said, it’s absolutely top of the line in terms of performance. Camera is not a big highlight of the phone, the MPs, the camera quality & features are ok. But, that display, that performance, the stereo speakers! Overall there’s a lot to like about this phone. it’ll be an easy recommendation for performance, not cameras!
