Realme had a strong time where we saw plenitude of bias in all prices and orders. There were gaming handsets, able uppermid-rangers with top-league chipsets, and the usual legion of phones taking on the exorbitantly competitive midrange request.
As the time is rounding to an end, we decided to look at Realme’s successes and failures, and with such a wide portfolio, it wasn’t hard to find plenitude of products to put on both sides of the hedge.
Winner: Realme GT Neo2
This phone arrived late in the time but snappily managed to steal our hearts. It is, by far, the stylish”flagship killer”on the request with an inconceivable price/ performance rate. The Snapdragon 870 chipset is enough able; the screen is a neat OLED with high refresh rate.
We likewise cherished the long battery life, legitimate quick 65W charging and some strong camera execution, albeit nothing phenomenal from this midranger.
What we didn’t like about the GT Neo2 and what could’ve made the phone perfect is the lack of a MicroSD niche, sanctioned water protection and3.5 mm audio jack. Other than that, it’s a fairly easy phone to recommend for the leaves, especially with its sub-€ 400 prices.
Loser: Realme 8 Pro
This telephone should be no joking matter, being the first for Realme with a 108MP camera. Still, it has the same chipset as its two forerunners-that’s right, the Realme 8 Pro has the same chipset as the Realme 6 Pro. And indeed if this phone wasn’t made for druggies to upgrade from the Realme 7 series, it still feels like a disappointment.
One more significant issue with the Realme 8 Pro is the value name. The organization put it against the Redmi Note 10 series, especially the Pro variation, and it noway had any possibility. Managing this telephone for€ 300 was a significant slip-up that consigned the 8 Pro to the piece of a likewise ran.
Winner: Realme 8
The Realme 8 series as a total was not that bad. Although it faced stiff competition at its€ 200 price point, this vanilla option brought plenitude of interesting specs for its class-great battery with fast charging and a lovely screen. Yes, the camera processing could’ve been better, but we shouldn’t anticipate important from the Helio G95 chipset powering the Realme 8.
It’s a phone for€ 200 after all, and it was the first of its kind with an AMOLED and under-display point scanner. We could fluently identify a large group of people that need little differently.
Loser: Realme GT 5G and the flagship battle
The only true flagship from Realme in 2021 was a massive boob. It launched the GT series that’s supposed to have bias as fast and snappy as a Grand Turismo auto, and it slotted right into the flagship killer home.
The telephone, yet attempting to be a lead and a gaming handset, didn’t follow through on execution games were restricted at 60 fps, the cameras disappointed, and the choking was a massive issue.
Then’s the thing-the Realme GT 5G is a nine-month-old phone. We anticipated Realme to bring a slight upgrade, presumably a GT Pro of some kind, with the Snapdragon 888 while addressing its issues. All things considered, the brand chose to skirt the late spring chip from Qualcomm and go straight for the 8 Gen 1 in Q1 2022.
Let’s put it straight-the clunker then’s not the Realme GT 5G in itself. The clunker is the whole participation of Realme in the flagship battle. The company did promise a truly ultra-expensive phone in the early days of 2022 with the GT 2 Pro, still, so hopefully coming time this bone will be in the winners’ section.
Winner: Realme 8i
Realme is a brand known for its low-estimated cell phones, and we’ve to make reference to the Realme 8i. It falls in the reasonable value part and offers a smart smooth encounter and a major battery for its expense. Priced at$ 190/€ 170, the Realme 8i sure comes with numerous negotiations. There’s only one speaker, and it’s not that good, but we can’t hold similar shortcomming against it, when you consider the target followership.
The Realme 8i smashed all its challengers in our bespoke battery test, winning over those that want their phones to be constantly available to them. With more than 131 hours in our tests, this gadget can go quite far.
Loser: Realme 8s 5G
While on the content of affordable phones, we’ve to mention the Realme 8s 5G. It ought to be a prevalent variety of the Realme 8 5G, but these two phones were ever less proficient than the LTE-just Realme 8 and the Realme 8 Pro.
And indeed if you do value 5G connectivity, the phone is vended in India, where the coming- word networks are still not available, putting it in a really awkward place.
Victor Realme GT Master and GT Explorer Master
Some might say it’s illegal to put these two phones next to each other because they’re so different. And while this is true, we’re grouping them for the capability to disrupt the midrange request like no other series.
Both the GT Master and the GT Explorer Master offer a Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, Full HD resolution and plenitude of able cameras. The 32MP selfie shooter performs great, and we shouldn’t ignore the 65W fast charging.
What’s utmost emotional, still, is the aesthetics of these two phones. In a world where specifications infrequently differ presently, looks occasionally are everything. The lovely Gray and Apricot back panels, inspired by a wallet and developed by Naoto Fukasawa, are delicacy to the eye. Indeed if you don’t want the weird design, the white option feels smooth and sturdy.
Loser: Realme UI2.0
The Realme UI2.0 is grounded on Android 11, which is excellent, but in a further real sense, it’s a rebadged ColorOS 11. Realme didn’t do anything specific to separate its UI from Oppo. We do understand both companies are under the same marquee, and it’s cost-effective to poke a new color on an being UI and call it a day, but it still feels deficient.
One thing we’ve to admit to Realme is the fidelity to bringing software updates to its bias. The stoner interface was officially introduced in September 2020, and the first stable performances started hitting phones in early 2021.
The Realme UI3.0 is formerly in a unrestricted beta stage, and it’ll again be inspired from the ColorOS 12, but hopefully, this time, Realme will add commodity further to make the interface a laddie more particular.
