Rating: 8/10

Design and display

In my opinion, the design of the Realme GT 6T looks a little understated compared to the latest Realme smartphones, especially the 12 Pro series. It’s subjective though, you may feel differently. The handset has a glossy dual-tone finish, which I think looks a bit fragile, and is prone to damage. The latter can be combated by using a case such as the one given in the box. If you are one of those who always want to protect their phone in a bag, you will not mind checking the condition of the device.

The device is made of plastic and has a curved screen form factor, although the edges aren’t as smooth as you’d expect. The handle is 8.65 mm thick and has a slightly flattened edge to avoid accidental contact with the screen. This also ensures that users get a good power supply for the device, which is further helped by its weight of just 191 grams despite packing a beefy 5,500mAh battery On the back, the handset has three individual rings: two for the cameras and one for the LED flash. The sound of the camera leaks out of the frame, causing the phone to vibrate as it lies flat on its back.

As for I/O, on the bottom stream is a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer, sandwiched between the SIM ejector tray and speaker grille. The earbuds double as a second speaker, helping to deliver a stereo output of crisp audio. The phone also features an IR blaster that transmits signals and controls all major compatible devices in the home. For security, the device sports a fingerprint scanner display. While it’s accurate, it’s not the fastest, and the placement, which is slightly lower than where your fingers naturally rest on the screen, can make getting into some situations a bit difficult.

The Realme GT 6T features a 6.78-inch 1.5k panel of the AMOLED variety, which is a standard option for mid-range smartphones these days. But what sets it apart is its impressive peak brightness of 6,000 nits. While these figures are impressive and far beyond even high-end smartphones, they are only achievable in a small display area, with distinctive colors, and to temporarily stifle display heat mouth otherwise, the display is the usual 1,000 nits of brightness, 1600 nits It also offers high brightness mode (HBM), which is still unique. The iPhone 15 Pro Max display, in context, offers only 1,000 nits of HBM.

The brightness of the display makes it easy to read in direct sunlight, even in the hot summers of Delhi. The Realme smartphone received a certificate from SGS that proves its display is very clear in harsh lighting conditions. In addition to this, it has an LTPO panel, which comes with an ideal refresh rate that can go down from 1Hz to a maximum of 120Hz depending on the storage content of a battery The viewing experience is quite impressive on the phone, with punchy vibrant colors, high contrast. proportion and good viewing techniques. There are also certificates for eye protection.


While the camera isn’t solid, the smartphone won’t let you down in good lighting conditions. The Realme GT 6G features a dual camera setup, which includes a 50MP Sony LYT600 main sensor and a 112-degree FoV 8MP ultra-wide lens. The main sensor offers 12.5MP resolution images by default, which exhibit high levels of detail and excellent color even with light. The handle adjusts to warmer tones, making the images more interesting, although the power level seems a bit low.

In comparison, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro (review), which boasts one of the best camera systems in the segment, delivers images with high quality, retaining most of the points even in shady areas but its colors are not as natural and the Realme GT 6T is responsible. The Motorola smartphone tends to go for a cooler tone and overcrowd the shadows.

Moving on, the GT 6T’s 8MP ultra-vid camera is average at best, producing sharp-free images. Noticeable damage to detail and color accuracy. Also, its field of view (FoV) is very small. The selfie camera on the phone is a 32MP snapper arranged in a punch-hole configuration. It captures images with facial expressions that respect her perfect skin tone. However, there is a small problem with overproduction, which leads to a noticeable loss of detail. However, the selfies she took are still popular and worth sharing on social media. Image capture is also impressive, with good edge visibility and minimal distortion, especially in well-lit environments. However, in low light or sunset, edge detection ceases, as does the overall quality of the images.

Performance and software

Ticking in the core of the Realme GT 6T is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3, a mid-range SoC with a 4nm processor and a 2.8GHz clock speed. This phone promises lightning-fast delivery, effortless multitasking, and the ability to handle intense mobile games. The handset comes in 8GB/ 12GB RAM and 128GB/ 256GB/ 512GB storage options. The store is not user-extensible, so choose your variants wisely.

The smartphone also features an ‘Advanced Iceberg Vapor Cooling System’ to control that temperature. This was evident in our gaming tests, as the handset exhibited lower temperatures compared to some of its rivals, such as the temperatures of the Motorola Edge 50 Pro, OnePlus 12R, iQOO Neo9 Pro, and Realme GT 6T about 14 after playing BGMI, Call of Duty and Real Racing 3 Despite being enhanced to some extent, the handset offered smooth gameplay that was free of jargon or frame drops in addition to functions a for routine use such as browsing, social media scrolling and multitasking, the phone performed well.

Users will also like the performance of the smartphone. The handset scored 14,50,949 on AnTuTu, just shy of the segment leader iQOO Neo9 Pro. On Geekbench, the Realme GT 6T scored 1,826 in the single-core test and 4,544 in the multi-core test, while its performance dipped by about 40 percent under heavy load.

Notably, the smartphone integrates an independent privacy security chip with a firewall system. According to the brand, it is a dedicated privacy feature that ensures your private data such as biometrics, facial recognition, screen locks, passwords, app locks, and file encryption never leave the device On the software front, the new GT-series smartphone runs Realme UI 5.0 on top of Android 14 layered out of the box. A total of 52 apps have been pre-installed on the smartphone, mostly from Google and Realme.

Among the third-party applications on the list are Facebook, LinkedIn, Paytm, Snapchat, and Amazon. These apps have a lot of users and should provide convenience to the users. However, if you are not one of them, it can be removed. The handset also comes with more customization options, and useful features like Split View for multitasking, Flexible Window, and Quick Launch features among others The Realme GT 6T is also future proof, with three years of major software updates and a new year of additional safety information.

Battery and charging

The Realme GT 6T is powered by a 5,500mAh battery with a blazing speed of 120W fast charging. The charger comes assembled in the box and can charge the device up to 20-100 percent in about 30 minutes. This is very remarkable for a phone with a battery life of more than 5,000 mAh.

All charges should last more than one day when used normally. When we tested the phone at 50 percent brightness, volume, and YouTube video playback, battery life dropped 3 percent after half an hour. On the gaming front, 30 minutes of BGMI, Call of Duty, and Real Racing 3 with poor graphics reduced the handset’s battery life by about 20 percent.

Final verdict

The Realme GT 6T is well-catered for performance-minded users. There are very few smartphones in this segment that can match that price, but none come close to providing a comfortable outdoor experience even in direct sunlight and the brightest 6,000 nits is an impressive game-changer for smartphones.

However, the phone’s design and camera seem to be a bit lacking, which could disappoint some customers who could well own the Motorola Edge 50 Pro. That said, if you prioritize performance, display quality, and fast charging in an affordable flagship, the Realme GT 6T is worth considering. The handset will be retailed in India starting from Rs 30,999.
