Uncle Sams, 03 Jul 2021Flagship phone but not support usb3.1 type C. It worse too me. And they named this GT, Lmfao..



Gt stands for

Stuuuks, 27 Jun 2021No Corning Gorilla Glass for protection? why realme!!!??? That's a deal-breaker for me. Since the introduction of Gorilla glass 5, neither me or anyone in my family ever had a smashed screen. I remember early days, 2011-14 where everyone i knew had broken screens. Iphones and Androids.
I would never buy a phone with weak or non screen glass protection. It's just not worth it.

beep bop boop, 26 Jun 2021i am wildly impressed by these OEM's giving such great... moreTrue, some of this 400-500EUR phones look very nice. And is not worth paying 1000EUR just for some small pluses and a better camera. I rarely use the camera on my phone.
But, also true, you need a little bit of luck with the model you choose. Not all models are great in this price range. And some of them require more compromises than others.

The foliage rendering is not good imo, it falls apart in low-light, the UW is poor, and ofc it has the worst horrible (optics) internal reflections, even not very strong lights indoors are reflected. And lastly I personally don't like the overly flat looking HDR videos without contrast.
And let's not talk about zoomed video, lmao.

Terrible video recording... then again, you get what you paid for. Video recording is still the weakest feature for all Android phones, even the flagship expensive phones. Apple iPhone is still the gold standard for video recording.

By the way, it's useless to record sample videos with the phone mounted on a fixed location. Walk/run/hop around with it, check its stabilization (or lack of it).

Shadocx, 27 Jun 2021Those doesn't have SD 888, you proved my point. And S... more865 and 870 dont heat up as much as 888. In both spec benchmark and genshin impact 865 has more perf/watt and fps/watt respectively. 855 is a two year old soc. And 865 actually gives 20% more efficency over it.

yalim, 28 Jun 2021if a dedicated macro will be used,it has to be with narrowe... moreYeah, because Pixel has excellent digital zoom software and doesn't soften subject's fine details as much as Samsung and other Chinese Brands does. Other brands aside from Google and Apple tends to soften the image even if beauty is off to reduce noise. Google's advantages is their super res zoom and hdr+ processing which gives images more details and dynamic range, that's why pixels portraits look great even though they're using digital zoom, and is comparable to Iphones with 2x zoom lens portrait. But it is impossible to do it on other phones. I mean, just look at S21 Ultra and Xiaomi Mi 11, the portraits at 2x zoom is soft even though the main cam has 108 MP, that's because the software for digital zoom and details aren't as great as Google's.

AnonD-986036, 26 Jun 2021Well, xiaomi phones with telemacro lens are real macro. The... moreif a dedicated macro will be used,it has to be with narrower FoV for sure like 50-60mm. besides,sony xperia 10 has a proper 52mm for zooming,portrait and macro shots,too. i understand there are cost constraints with adding tele lenses on midrangers. then, why not remove all those depth and macro cams? this reduces cost and save more internal space. using digital zoom with bokeh shot is possible with software. if the subject is 20-30cm far, the shot will definitely be an great macro shot. if the subject is 2 meters far, it will be a great portrait shot. pixel did it 4 years ago.

trospe, 26 Jun 2021O am Sick for all 3 useless and the one mediocre on midrang... moreagree...even the same main cam with a proper processing software is all they need.google pixel did zoomed bokeh with only one lens 4 years ago! today's midrange chipset can process as fast as 2017 flagships chipsets. point a subject from 15-20cm, zoom 2-3x and take a portrait shot is all we need.just a single cam does everything by itself for godsake.no need to put 2 more garbage lenses.main and wide is enough for everything.

iserp, 26 Jun 2021Have you seen Laowa probe lens?nope.interesting gadget for sure

Cheap phone is cheap.
Probably only 1 OS update. Why pay so much money for a phone without software support?
This phone is only for tech reviewers that will get new phones every month, meaning they don't need software updates.

Well I received my phone in Italy and the charger has USB A so it's USB A to C cable included.

And I believe all the top SD chipset has more battery drain than their 700series because I had OP5 before even which had SD835 and battery drain used to be more but now with 120HZ screen I believe this is more common to have higher battery drain. I wish they had included smart charging that we can stop charging at 80% or 90% or like Sony and ROG phone 5 that to use charger and play game without charging in order to reduce heat

if it is on the Old Continent, where are the European prices?

Bigmeme, 27 Jun 2021888 has heating issues. Period.True. That's why I stick with Sd865 smartphone for now.
