You might know Realme for the cheap earphones and affordable smartwatches recently released by the brand, but the brand has just now made its most interesting phone so far in the mid-budget range – the Realme GT. It is an interesting phone from Realme, as the company claims that it has designed the phone to cater both the industrial environment and those of a more casual user. Indeed, the phone has been designed to be ‘designed for the job in hand, rather than the mobile phone in pockets’. So with this in mind, what does this mean for users? It means that, although the Realme brand is best known for making ‘designer’ phones of a high quality, the Realme GT might not quite come up to those expectations. realme gt
The Realme GT is one interesting phone in a long line of Indian phones, launched by the company in partnership with Vodafone. The phone comes in a standard white color, with silver highlights and a metallic body. Apart from the standard white and silver, the phone comes in a few colors including ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’, ‘Maroon’ and ‘Birch’ for those who prefer a little more variety. It also features a sleek, thin bezel, as well as an aluminium band. As for the hardware, the Realme GT comes standard with a 3.2-inch capacitive multi-touch screen, a sixteen-megapixel camera with VGA lens, a WiFi module, a micro SD card, a vibrator, a barcode scanner, a proximity sensor, a WiFi access point, and a wallpaper with Windows.
The unique thing about the Realme GT, apart from its standard looks, is that it offers a great deal more than you would expect from a smartphone. For starters, the Realme has a unique dual-camera system, where the rear camera can take up to four photos and the front camera only can capture the default photo. This smart phone also comes standard with a 1.2-megapixel primary cam and eight-megapixel secondary cam, which are not a surprising feature, given the high quality of the images it can produce.
As far as power goes, the Realme GT comes standard with a turbocharged octa-core processor, which makes it the first smartphone to feature a quad-core processor on a mobile device. This will boost the speed at which your applications run, as well as making it easier to browse the web, email, and perform basic tasks like messaging. However, despite the high-powered processor, the phone is not too powerful and will feel a little underwhelmed when using it for intensive tasks. The battery life of the Realme GT is also below that of many other smartphones and will last you between five and seven hours on a single charge, although this depends on how you use the smartphone.
If you want to enjoy your multimedia experience on the go, then the Realme GT5G smartphone offers you a choice of different memory configurations. You can opt for either a two gigabyte / six gigabyte model or a three gigabyte / six gigabyte model. Each option has its pros and cons, and it’s down to your needs and usage habits that determine which one you should buy. The standard Realme comes with a memory card, which support the majority of external storage devices like external hard drives, memory sticks, and Bluetooth. You do have the freedom to buy additional memory from the retailer, but pre-installed memory cards from Realme do not work on any other device. The lack of pre-installed memory cards means that users are left with the choice of investing in external storage devices or sticking to the limited internal memory of the Realme.
Although the Realme has an interface that is very similar to many handsets from HTC and Samsung, it is clearly not an imitator. The interface and the software present on the Realme are a class apart, and that’s why it has been gaining popularity with each passing day. In addition, it offers a very functional user interface, and the user community is active and helpful on the Realme forums. The Realme is one of the best bargains when it comes to smart phones, and if you’re looking for a smartphone with all the benefits of a modern mobile phone, the Realme is one to consider. The Realme is available from various retailers in the UK, and all good retailers like Orange and O2 offer free customer trials of their latest handsets.
