Will Realme Replace One Plus? Realme GT, True Flagship Killer

Realme GT 5g flagship killer

OnePlus used to be one of the most affordable premium handsets in the mobile market, but not anymore, as its latest flagship devices are being launched with a higher price tag compared to the previous models. But what if you get the same high-end specs and features at half of the price from some other brands, wouldn’t that be worthy of buying? That is what Realme has done with their latest flagship device, Realme GT 5G, which has some excellent and top-end features.

An ultra-thin device with a 3D gorilla glass protection, the Realme GT 5G forms a plain design that fits quite perfectly with its camera bump. Most of the mid-budget phones tend to have a rather bulkier body, whereas realme has given its phone a slimmer body shape, which is quite impressive. The most striking aspect of the Realme GT is the 120Hz FullHD+ Super AMOLED display, which seems almost identical to the OnePlus 8T but with minimal bezels. The display can provide up to 600 nits of brightness for best usability even in the brightest sunlight.

Fast, consistent, and well placed, the in-display fingerprint scanner does its job well. The scanner instantly responds to your touch and gives you access to the device.

If you hear flagship, the first thing you would want to know is about its performance, and the Realme GT offers superior performance with the SnapDragon 888 packed inside. And, to get this powerful processor going, it comes with 8GB, up to 12 GB of ram. The storage capacity can be chosen from 128GB or 256GB variants. These specifications eventually offer you some action-packed gaming experience.

Many of us might think Realme would have a cut down in the camera section for saving costs, as they have already provided so much to this phone. But that’s not the case. Even in this budget price range, realme GT can click rich, vibrant images with colors that pop. It allows you to shoot 4K videos at 60fps with extreme clarity.

The battery backup is outstanding with this device, featuring a 4500mAH battery capacity. And, you get fully juiced up only in 35 minutes with its 65W superfast charger that comes with the box.  So gaming for a long time or heavy usage won’t be affecting the battery backup at all. Though you can extend your battery’s lifespan by using a 60Hz display refresh rate, it would be insane not to enjoy the display in full flow.

Realme GT 5g is the cheapest model having the SnapDragon 888, which is something to look at. From hardware to software and outlooks, this smartphone can be a true flagship killer having a much lower price. OnePlus used to provide such flagship specs with a premium design and build quality. But as they are now focused more on increasing their price, Realme got some scopes to get a hold of that position. Moreover, OnePlus Nord, the mid-range smartphone wasn’t that impressive featuring lower specs than other brands at this price range. So if Realme can provide good service quality and keep launching devices like GT 5G at this price range, surely many people would love to prefer relame over the OnePlus.
