Reviews for the realme GT 2 Master Explorer Edition

80% Realme GT2 Explorer Master
Source: Android Headlines English
Well for starters this device is limited to mainland China. While it works just fine in the USA thanks to the Phone Clone app on another OPPO/Realme smartphone, there are some software limitations for seamless daily use. One big issue is the Tap to Pay via NFC. This is a great device outside China if you plan to use it as a secondary device. You may also want to use it just as a standalone gaming device. But for a daily driver, you may have to make a few sacrifices and I am not sure if everyone is willing to do that. On the flip side, if you do decide to get the Realme GT2 Explorer Master, you are getting a stellar-looking phone, with great performance, a beautiful display, phenomenal battery life with 100W charging, and a capable camera system. If you are willing to live with the software quirks, this is probably one of the best-priced Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 devices on the market right now.

It's one of the more unusual phones to judge, the GT2 Pro Explorer Master. An excellent display, long battery life, good peak and sustained performance and great camera performance across the board. Yes, we'd take a long telephoto instead of a microscopic lens, but if 2x was the alternative we are better off this way as the main sensor does well at shorter zooms. And we have an even cooler design this time around. All in all it brings enough upgrades to remain just competent and well-rounded as the GT2 Pro six months later, but for the vast majority of users it just doesn't matter as they aren't able to buy it.

Realme GT2 Master Exploration Edition Review: Worth it?
Source: Igeekphone English
The previous generation of True GT Master Exploration Edition can be said to be Trump’s thinking and exploration of trendy design, so it is not radical in performance, which is a little regrettable. The newly launched Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition of this generation does not compromise on performance and battery life in a body as thin as 8.17mm and as light as 199g. With the use of the Snapdragon 8+ processor, even With a large battery of 5000 mAh, under the same volume, there are not many models that can take into account both performance and large batteries. In terms of performance, in addition to using the Snapdragon 8+ processor, I launched the LPDDR5X memory and pulled the specifications to the mainstream flagship level. There is no regret in the performance. If you have requirements for appearance, but also want to be thin and light enough without sacrificing performance, then Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition must perfectly meet your requirements.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 8+ Gen 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem. Compared to the non plus version, the 8+ Gen 1 offers a 200 MHz higher clocked Prime Core and a 10% higher clocked GPU. Furthermore, it is now produced at TSMC and not Samsung.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
