Reviews for the Realme GT5
Source: GSM Arena
Sadly, the global market will once again miss Realme's top-end smartphone. The company has confirmed with us it has no plans on launching the GT5 outside of China, and that's unfortunate because the handset is a pretty solid all-rounder. However, it does seem to be a marginal upgrade over its predecessor, and aside from a couple of cosmetic changes and a more powerful, the GT5 is almost identical to its predecessor, the GT3. In a sense, the Realme GT5 240W is a tech showcase more than anything else. It seems like the charging tech is the centerpiece feature, and the phone is an afterthought. But the 240W charging was introduced with last year's GT3, so it's not really all that new. The regular GT5 with 150W fast charging may pose a better value as it's cheaper and has a bigger battery. One could make a case for the GT5 being a good all-rounder with flagship-worthy hardware (display, chipset, charging and main camera), but the feature set from other competitors is much more enticing.

If you want a flagship smartphone with the latest and greatest specs but you are under a tight budget, then the new Realme GT5 and GT5 240W smartphones are the best flagship choices for you at this moment. These smartphones not only provide the best processor for a speedy user experience and superior gaming but also provide other equally capable components to serve a great user experience. That’s all Realme wanted. They wanted to cater this smartphone to the niche mobile gaming industry and we believe they have cracked the formula. Apart from this, the smartphone also arrives with a balanced camera setup. Speaking of downsides, there is the absence of fast wireless charging and reverse charging support on the device. Anyways, the device performs well enough in all departments. And they did so at a price that is simply unbeatable. That’s what makes this smartphone so appealing.

Qualcomm Adreno 740: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A16 iGPU (previously the fastest smartphone GPU).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
SD 8 Gen 2: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2022 with a fast prime core based on a ARM Cortex-X3 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Two more performance cores are based on the A715 and also support only 64 bit applications. The two additional A710 cores support also 32 bit applications as do the power saving Cortex-A510 cores. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 7 modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5x memory with up to 4,200 MHz. 5G is included in the chip with the Snapdragon X70 modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
