Realme GT 6 review

GSMArena Team, 20 June 2024.

Introduction

The global version of the Realme GT 6 is finally here and it looks beyond promising. The phone shines with a cool and stylish design, a premium Dolby Vision OLED, one of the fastest chips, top-tier cameras, long battery life and fast charging!

Realme's GT lineup is back to global markets, and it comes with a new design that turns heads with its two-tone back combining glossy parts with a silver mirror finish.

Realme is advertising the 6.78-inch OLED screen on the GT 6 for its LTPO OLED panel with high resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color depth and Dolby Vision support. But most importantly - for the highest peak brightness on the market - up to 6,000 nits.

The GT 6 employs the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chipset, which has become somewhat of a maker-favorite platform on the market for its flagship-grade performance but not a flagship-grade cost. Realme promises high-end vapor-chamber cooling, fast LPDDR5X RAM and UFS4 storage.

Finally, the Realme GT 6 comes with a super large 5,500 mAh battery, and it supports blazing-fast 120W SuperVOOC charging. Realme promises 50% of the charge in just 10 minutes!

Curved screen is the deal breaker here they should stop making them.

Where they offer charger and case in the box, have better specs for the price and don't charge premium for a lower-end smartphone featuring an exynos processor. Take it or not, that's your call.
