Yet the other sub-phone 500 phone bothers big dogs in the form of Realm GT5G.
Overview Over the past five years, there has been a trend in Android space where mid-pack priced devices have specs that can compete with the most amazing flyers.
The Realm GT, launched in Europe earlier this month, is a prime example of this trend.

First, the price. The base model, the LPDDR5 with a respectable 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, retains ret 449 (approximately £ 385), although it has not yet been released in the UK. Has gone This is the model we reviewed. Hitting a ridiculous (and meaningless) 12GB RAM that puts you in a boot with 256GB of storage will get you back 599.
And looking at the list of specs, one will struggle to identify many areas where the realm has cut meaningful corners. The 5G-powered device uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 platform, which appeared on the US and Korean versions of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, as well as the ASUS ROG iPhone 5 series.
This means that the user experiences a flow, with which the apps open immediately, and the feeling of zero is reduced as they go about their daily lives. Multi-tasking feels satisfying, and like more intense games Call duty: Mobile And Pubg Mobile Glide together.
We found it difficult to err on the side of the 6.43-inch display, which used a beautiful Super AMOLED panel with 2400 x 1080 resolution, 409ppi pixel density, and support for HDR10 +.
It’s running on its own in the Netflix app, where the colors look very realistic, and you don’t expect any washed-out blacks from the cheap LED panels. It can run at a fresh refresh rate of 120 Hz, although you’ll want to crank it up to 90 Hz to save battery life.
Another great touch is the inclusion of OTG reverse charging, which allows you to use the phone to charge other devices. Although reverse wireless charging is quite common, wired equivalents are relatively rare.
Speaking of obscure features, the Realm GT also comes with a 3.5mm headphone port, allowing the user to use the wired can they have. Since the introduction of the iPhone 7, wired audio has become an endangered genre, so we’re glad to find it here.
Rig The built-in dual Dolby ATMOS was also impressed with the stereo speaker, which made a full and loud sound. Users will appreciate it while watching the videos, but also when the speaker will take calls using the phone, and it proved so loud that drilling workers on the surrounding road kicked the witch out. ۔
Then there is optics. Admittedly, we didn’t have high expectations here, especially when it comes to the camera. Realme has no plans. (That could change: Renaissance via Sina Weibo via VP Suu Kyi Chase has sparked rumors that the next flagship will be seen in partnership with Kodak.)
The photos he took were good enough for social media, however, they lacked the quality provided by Samsung’s flagship Galaxy series, as well as devices from Huawei’s Mate and P series.
On the rear end, the core sensor is a Sony 64MP case, which uses 16MP photo default L-MP pixel binding. Again, these were fine, although they had the same flaws when using the ultra-high megapixel counting sensor. It lacks detail, especially when zooming in on the elements in the image, and things feel a bit artificial and stressful.
Shooting in the default 64MP format avoids some of these, albeit at the expense of storage space. This is only a viable option during the day, however, when the tiny pixels of the sensor struggle to absorb light after sunset, mild pressure builds up.
Another drawback is the lack of a telephoto lens, which forces the user to use digital zooming for long distance photography. Then again, given the price, I wouldn’t expect to add optical zoom.
The ultra-wide camera of at least 8MP is decent, with quite detailed shots being taken. There is also a 2MP camera with 4CM fixed. It’s a bit easy to use, and I didn’t like the iconic design it developed, but the reason it is less is that it is less likely to be used by camera users in general during things.
Software and design
The Realm GT is powered by Android 11 and Realm UI 2.0 software. The skins are slightly different, and Realme UI 2.0 has plenty of fans as well. This reviewer falls into the latter category, and I admired its relatively clean design, although it wasn’t too biased about the non-stock software that came in the bundle.
We also appreciated the overall aesthetics of the device. Provided the truth Register A unit with “Racing Blue” backplate, which produces a dynamic reflective effect when exposed to light. Still, given the possibility that users immediately open the box. Then they will throw it in a case, they will enjoy it.
Realm also won points for having a relatively flat camera bump. This is a similar problem in the first world, but it can be very annoying in a phone where the camera module is enlarged. It’s a small thing, but we appreciated it.
To draw conclusions
The Realm GT is a viable alternative to other mainstream phones, such as the OnePlus 9 Series or the Samsung Galaxy S20FE.
It’s fast, and comes with a good processor and ODLs of RAM. The screen is big and rich, and with it some of the better speakers we’ve found in the price category.
While the camera isn’t great, it’s not bad either, and for most people it’s probably good enough. Battery life is outstanding, and users can easily go between charges for up to 36 hours, while the inclusion of 65W fast charging eliminates any battery hassle. ®
