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

On this week’s episode of Gadget’s 360 podcast Orbital, host Akhil Arora speaks with Senior Reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy to discuss Realme’s new GT-series phones.

Realme GT

We talk about why Realme is quietly phasing out its X series and replacing it with the Realme GT phones. The X series launched a few months ago and included the Realme X7 Max, Realme X7 5G, Realme X7 Pro 5G, and the Realme X3 SuperZoom. To provide a new experience, the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition come with some design-level tweaks – though surprisingly limited to low-end variants.

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

In addition to one unique shade, the Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition have a glass back that makes them look like all other devices in their price segment.

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

However, the Realme phones have the latest Qualcomm SoCs, 5G support, and some other notable specs, including full-HD+ displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and triple rear cameras to attract buyers looking for a decent option under Rs. 40,000 price segment.

We also discuss performance, gaming experience, and battery life on Realme GT 5G and Realme GT Master Edition. We also dive into how well the phones stack up against the competition, including the OnePlus Nord 2, Poco F3 GT, Mi 11X, and Motorola Edge 20.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
