If you’ve been following us regularly, you already know that we recently reviewed the Realme GT, a device from the Asian firm that wanted to push the value-for-money mantra that Android users seem to be looking for. Now we have a reissue with us that you won’t want to miss.
Discover with us the Realme GT Master Edition, a device crowned with a formula that we already know. We take a deep dive into this latest addition from Realme and find out if it really is as interesting as it sounds. Do not miss our impressions, what were yours?
Japanese design, curling the curl
Although it inherits the outline of the Realme GT, this Master Edition has certain details that make it a little more attractive, or at least something more elegant. We have a polycarbonate frame, which is clearly noticeable in the 178 gram weight (vegan leather included). The vinyl sheet in the shape of a skin, or as they now call it vegan leather on the back, it features a very attractive relief and high quality finishes.
- Dimensions: 159 * 73 * 8 (8.7mm with vegan leather)
- Weight: 174 grams (178 grams with vegan leather)
For its part, the 16 centimeters long are quite comfortable on a daily basis given its lightness and its rare 8 millimeters thick. The prominent rear camera section is striking, while the power button remains on the right bezel and the volume controls on the left. For the lower bezel, the USB-C is left with the speaker hole punch and the 3.5mm jack which is still present.
The box includes a very nicely finished matte silicone case and it completely mimics the original design of the device, something remarkable. The same goes with the classic screen protector film already installed and which I recommend replacing with tempered glass, something that elevates the quality feel on any mobile.
Adjust the hardware to adjust the price, This Realme GT Master Edition arrives with the Snapdragon 778G with compatibility for 5G networks and accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM to which will be added 3 GB of virtual RAM, at least in the unit that we tested and object of this analysis. In this regard, Realme doesn’t scratch like it does with the 128GB of storage, although we couldn’t verify if it has a UFS 3.1 system like it does with its sibling. elder. As for the GPU, bet on the Adreno 642L as expected.

The result is fluidity, ease of work and reduced loading times. We really liked the performance of the WiFi 6 network as you can see in the video. Accompanied by Realme UI 2.0, which once again leaves us with a bit of a strange taste in our mouths due to the included bloatware that no one has asked for.
We have a panel of almost 6.5 inches in FullHD + resolution made by Samsung, more precisely a Super AMOLED With a refresh rate of 120 Hz which is tripled in the case of the touch screen, it has 100% of the DCI spectrum. -P3, which makes the panel one of the main attractions of the device. The brightness is more than sufficient for the most demanding exteriors and we really enjoyed using it.
Regarding the volume, despite the announcement of a dual speaker, we found too much importance of the bottom with a sufficiently high volume and good quality, As long as you do not unconsciously cover it with your hand, maybe the least visible aspect of the multimedia experience.
As for the three rear sensors, we find a result almost identical to that of the Realme GT, in this Master Edition we still have a very nice main sensor but an insufficient company:
- Main sensor: 64 MP f / 1.8
- Wide angle sensor: 8 MP f / 2.3 with 119º
- Macro sensor: 2 MP f / 2.4
In the end, the main sensor offers good performance as long as no light contrasts are required. The Wide Angle, the zooms and especially the Macro are a versatile company but which only shines in extremely favorable conditions. The camera, despite its various options, is clearly affected by the poor quality of the “secondary” sensors.
Portrait mode and selfie camera (32 MP with f / 2.5 aperture) they are again conditioned by an excess of software. While the front camera works well in favorable lighting conditions, the front and rear “portrait” has a lot to improve.Rear portraitFace portrait
Regarding video recording, we invite you to go directly through our video analysis where we made real-time and hand-held recordings with all the sensors of the Realme GT Master Edition.
Connectivity and autonomy
We were blown away by the performance of your state-of-the-art WiFi 6 network card which allowed us to get the most out of the performance of our fiber optic connection. Unfortunately, we were unable to get results from the 5G network due to poor coverage.
The 4,300 65 mAh battery with a fast charge of XNUMX W It is largely sufficient for daily performance, we already know that this will largely depend on the use that will be made of the terminal.
We have a good job from Realme with the intention of “popularizing” the GT Master Edition, adjusting the design and features in order to get a price tag of 299 euros (on sale) that quickly converts it by design, capabilities and its versatility into one of the most remarkable high-end terminals.
