Realme GT Full Review: A great competitor vs Redmi K40 Pro
Today we are going to bring you another flagship killer, the realme gt. If you have been following the brand and this phone over the past few weeks, you must already know which model this phone is targeted at the placement of the realme gt is like the brand making of a bold announcement. We are coming for the redmi k40 pro. Even when redmi had announced the pricing of the k40 pro realme just came forward and said that the gt was going to be priced lower and the brand didn’t go back on its word, the 8 plus 128 gigabyte version only sells for 2799 rmb, which is 200 Rmb cheaper than the same version of the k40 pro. So how exactly do this flagship killer compared to an already great smartphone? The redmi k40 pro let’s find that out at first glance. We realized that the realme gt had little chance to defeat the k40 pro in the design department. But the good news is that the real me gt is even more compact than the k40 pro, which had already surprised us with its thin and light body. The gt weighs only 186 grams but at the same time features a slightly smaller 6.43 inch display, thanks to its smaller display, it is easier to hold the real me gt as compared to the k40 pro, perhaps due to cost limitations on such an aggressively priced model. The camera module in the real me gt is still a matrix design.
This design is shared by almost all of realme’s phones and, after looking at so many models using this camera, module style, it’s hard, not to feel a little bored with this design. The blue and silver color versions are also the same color schemes as they have used before the yellow leather version is kind of nice. However, it is only available for the 12 gigabyte ram, plus 256 gigabyte rom version. The real me gt now has the rare 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, which is almost hardly seen on smartphones these days. I have to give the brand some credit for including this dedicated port, but all in all, i don’t think the real me gt looks good enough to please most people. The 6.43 inch super ammo led display features a resolution of 2400 by 1080, a refresh rate of 120 hertz, but it doesn’t use the latest e4 light emitting screen. The home punch area is also relatively larger. If we compare to the k40 series, this display is still one of the most popular options for a 2021 mainstream model. However there’s nothing that stands out. One thing to note, however, is that the overall maximum brightness of the real me gt’s display is only around 600 nits, while the k40 pro has an overall maximum brightness of 900 nits. So when using the gt under direct sunlight, the insufficient brightness makes it a bit difficult to look at the display, especially when compared to the k40 series.
Since the phone comes with the letter’s gt in its name, snapdragon 888 lpddr5 and ufs 3.1 are naturally not absent. All of this performance related hardware is the best options for an android phone in 2021 with gt mode on and a 3d mark. It scores around 5 800. in another benchmark the geekbench 5. We got a result of 1142 points in the single core test and 3703 points in the multi core test. So from all the results we mentioned, the gt achieved a similar high level of performance as the other snapdragon 888 phones and was even a bit better than most android phones, we’ve tested in the actual gaming test. The results are also excellent. In the 30 minute test of genshin impact, the gt achieved an average frame rate of 55.03 fps. It started to throttle down the cpu clock, speed after three and a half minutes, but still managed to maintain a good gaming experience and in another game, nemean legends. The realme gt surprised us with an average frame rate of 51.75 fps. Considering this game especially tested the phone’s cooling effects like engine impact, it experienced a slight performance down throttling but still maintained a good gaming experience thanks to the excellent cooling effect and the hottest it got was around 51 degrees celsius. I wouldn’t say this: temperature is low, but it’s at least better than many snapdragon 888 models which struggle to maintain such a high performance from our test.
It looks like the realme gt is worthy of its gt name like the k40 pro. The camera system is also gt’s weak point, so let’s talk briefly about its camera performance. The realme gt comes with a 64 megapixel main camera, an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle lens and another 2 megapixel macro lens, just to be clear. The general sample shots are taking with ai color on auto hdr and the rest are left at default, except for special scenes. The main camera outputs, strong and vivid colors with a good dynamic range. The color contrast is high and color gradation is relatively neutral. The general images often showed an eye pleasing site foreign at night. The realme gt’s, auto mode performs very well with good exposure and accurate colors compared to the k40 pro. The gt also performs much better in the dynamic range and image detailed departments and because realme gt’s night scene algorithm was automatically activated in its auto mode. There was little difference in the night images when we manually turned on the night mode Music. The images shot on the realme gt’s wide angle, camera is basically the same as what we got on the main camera. But the purple fringing issue is a bit remarkable for the wide angle samples in normal night scenes, except for the dynamic range which is slightly better on the real me gt. There is no obvious difference between gt and the k40 pro, because the k40’s wide angle camera doesn’t, integrate the knight algorithm for auto mode.
It suffers in extremely dark conditions, but with night mode on the results are totally different. The k40 pro achieved this solid comeback. For macro, shooting the sample shot on the realme gt’s macro lens can’t, even compare to the images cropped from the original samples of the main camera, and this macro camera’s closest point of focus is limited to four centimeters. So the sensor is pretty much useless and you might even assume it doesn’t exist if we had to point out something that is really well done. On the real me gt, it is the 65 watt charging technology, the phone charges to 21 in just five minutes 61 and 15 minutes, and it took just 31 minutes to charge to 100. Although it’s not the fastest charging speed we’ve ever seen, it is still the best in its price segment. When you compare it with its rivals, despite its high charging power, it doesn’t sacrifice battery capacity with a 4 500 milliampere battery. It consumes six percent of power each for 30 minutes of tick, tock 30 minutes of web video, playback 19 for 30 minutes of gentian impact gaming and 16 for 20 minutes of nimian legend gaming, considering its excellent gaming performance battery life performance is really impressive, so that’s What you should expect from the real me gt, the phone really did a great job in performance and gaming departments, even when compared to the k40 pro, which was released around the same time, the real me gt seems to have been able to better optimize the 888 Chipset as a challenger trying to win the competition against the k40 pro realme knows, it needs solid features in order for the gt to come out as a better value for money product, and they have managed to do this to a considerable extent, but it’s a bit Disappointing that its design and camera module didn’t bring us much surprise.
Well, at least on the k40 series, we are excited about its new design profile so which model are you going to pick between the k40 pro and the realme gt? And for what reason?
