Realme GT Master review


Realme GT Master
Realme GT Master brings a similar design

Realme GT Master brings a similar design to the high-end realme GT explorer master, but with some toned-down specs. Both the GT master and explore master were designed by Naoto Fukasawa. And his concept was based on the appearance of luggage for the travelers at heart. It’s a faux leather design with 3d accents and his own signature. But if you’re not into that, there’s the option for the more minimalistic Luna white, which we have here. It’s a matte finish that doesn’t pick up fingerprints that easily. The rear panel and glossy frames seem to be plastic, and the phone feels comfy in hand.


On the front of the master is a 6.43 inch MLA display with a 20 DP resolution, a punch hole for the selfie cam and a fast 120 hertz refresh rate. The high refresh rate smooths out your swiping and scrolling. And it will also adapt to what’s going on on the screen to save energy.

120 hertz refresh rate

If you stop interacting with the UI, for example, it will dial down to 60 hertz, and the default for games is 60 hertz as well. This display is quite nice. Blacks are super deep, and the picture is plenty sharp at 409 PPI colors aren’t the most accurate out of the box.

But there are plenty of color settings to tweak them with. And although there’s no official HDR 10 support in the specs. We did get HDR playback and YouTube at least as far as brightness goes is good enough for legibility outdoors.

But not class leading me to measure around 440 minutes maximum with a manual slider which boosts to around 640 minutes and auto mode when in bright conditions. And there’s an optical fingerprint scanner sitting under the display. For your biometrics, it’s quite fast and reliable to wake up and unlock the phone even if it is placed a bit lower than we’re used to.


The GT Master has a headphone jack and a single speaker at the bottom. This is a bit of a disadvantage compared to other mid ranges with stereo setups. It’s not particularly loud scoring average on our loudness chart. And the sound quality is okay but nothing special.


You get 128 or 256 gigs onboard. And that’s it. It is an expandable. The interface of the GT Master is realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11. It’s the same UI we’ve seen on other recent realme phones, heavily customized but still smooth and bloat free.

You have support for an app drawer, or you can opt to keep all of your apps on the homescreen multimedia is handled by real means apps. You’re able to minimize an app into a mini window or a floating window. Great for less intrusive multitasking.

RealMe UI provides a personalizations panel, which allows you to customize various aspects of the interface from font styles to the always on display. And there’s a game space for organizing your game titles and managing notifications while playing.


Realme GT Master has Snapdragon 778 G chipset built on a 6-nanometer process. CPU wise is actually in the same ballpark as last year’s flagships as well as the realme GT explorer master. But it’s still competitive for the class, you get 5g connectivity.

And as far as thermals go, the Master does a good job with very little thermal throttling and our sustained stress test. Overall, the performance here is not quite flagship grade, but it’s excellent for a mid-ranger in everyday tasks and games run without a hitch.


The realme GT Master has a 4300 mAh battery

The realme GT Master has a 4300 mAh battery and considering its size, it provides great battery life. The phone was able to score an endurance rating of 114 hours and our proprietary tests and when it comes to charging speed, it’s hard to beat the master. It comes with a 65 watt Dodge Charger in the box and with it is able to charge from zero to 100% in half an hour.


The realme GT masters triple cameras there’s a 64 megapixel quad bay or main camera, an 8 megapixel ultra wide cam and a 2 megapixel macro cap during the day. 16 megapixel photos from the main cam are very good.

They have an excellent level of detail and balance sharpening. But the colors are really saturated and together with the high contrast you get very vibrant looking photos that may not appeal to everyone. portraits generally come out good with fairly competent subject separation and excellent dynamic range.

8 megapixel photos from the ultra wide are okay, there’s good sharpness and the distortion correction works well, but there’s also not that much detail and dynamic range is limited and while the color rendition is likable. It doesn’t match the main Khans. 2-megapixel photos from the macro cam are far from impressive.
