Realme GT Master Edition

Review Highlights

Realme has partnered with renowned designer, Naoto Fukusawa to give the Realme GT Master Edition an unique suitcase-inspired design. The vegan leather back feels really good in hand.

180g weight and small dimensions make it super comfortable to hold and use even single-handedly.

Same 6.43inch AMOLED display as on Realme X7 Max. Good for multimedia consumption, but it doesn’t have stereo speakers which is a letdown.

120Hz refresh rate makes the phone feel super smooth. 8GB RAM is coupled with either 128 or 256gigs of UFS 2.2 storage.

Snapdragon 778G is a big upgrade over the 768G, although it falls slightly short of Dimensity 1200, especially in GPU power. It’s a great chipset for casual daily use.

BGMI can run on HDR+Ultra or Smooth+Extreme. The sustained performance and thermal performance of the phone is really impressive. Very little to no throttling observed.

4300mAh battery lasts just about a day with 5-5.5 hours SOT on medium usage. 65W charger takes 35minutes to charge from 0-100% so battery performance feels satisfactory.

64MP Omnivision sensor takes great looking photos with slightly boosted colors and great dynamic range. The 8MP ultrawide is too weak, and the fixed focus 2MP macro is basically useless. Selfies from the 32MP Sony cam are one of the best in the segment.

Overall, it's a well balanced package sure to attract buyers of every kind. For serious gamers, Realme X7 Max or Poco F3 GT will make more sense. The inclusion of stereo speakers, a better ultrawide camera would have made this the perfect mid-ranger for 2021.
