Can Realme GT, Realme GT Master Edition compete with OnePlus 9R, Poco F3 GT?

Realme GT and Realme GT Master Edition are the two new phones from the Chinese company that essentially replace their previous X-series. Both the Realme GT and the Realme GT Master Edition are also designed to take on models like the OnePlus Nord 2, Poco F3 GT, Mi 11X and Motorola Edge 20. While the price of the Realme GT in India starts at Rs. 37,999, the Realme GT Master Edition comes as a diluted variant of the new flagship, with a starting price of Rs. 25,999.

On this week’s episode of Orbital Gadgets 360 podcast, host Akhil Arora speaks with senior reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy to discuss all about Realme’s new GT series phones.

We talk about why Realme is silently scrapping its X-series and replacing it with Realme GT phones. The X series started a few months ago and included models like the Realme X7 Max, Realme X7 5G, Realme X7 Pro 5G and Realme X3 SuperZoom, among others. To offer a new experience, the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition come with some design-level tweaks – although surprisingly, they’re limited to low-cost variants.

Between the two models, the Realme GT Master Edition comes in a Voyager Gray model for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant that has a unique suitcase-shaped design and a vegan leather finish. The regular Realme GT 5G, on the other hand, has a Racing Yellow version with racetrack-like stripes on the back and vegan leather similar to what is available in the Realme GT Master Edition.

In addition to a unique tint, the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition have back glass options that make them similar to all other devices in their price range.

Despite being marketed as “flagship killers”, the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition do not have any premium features such as IP rating for water resistant design or wireless charging support.

Realme phones, however, have the latest Qualcomm SoCs along with 5G support and some other attractive specs, including full-HD+ screens with 120Hz refresh rate and triple rear cameras to appeal to buyers looking for a decent option below of Rs. 40,000 price segment.

We also talk about performance, gaming experience and battery life in Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition. We also investigate how phones withstand the competition, including the OnePlus Nord 2, the Poco F3 GT, the Mi 11X and the Motorola Edge 20.
