Realme XT smartphone review

Realme is a subsidiary of OPPO, although the latter is heavily hidden and not advertised in any way. The strategy is exactly the same as that behind the division of Huawei and Honor within the same parent company, this is to strengthen its own sales through a new name plus positioning in other price segments. The Realme brand is what OnePlus was supposed to be, but never did - good value for money, outstanding performance in some ways. But unlike OnePlus, the focus here is not on the flagship market, but on all price segments, except for the budget one.

It is important to understand that Realme is unknown in Russia, the brand is just appearing, and therefore there is no understanding among the buyer what kind of brand it is and what it is eaten with. But about the same in other countries of the world, a fresh brand that follows in the footsteps of its predecessors. I have no doubt that this name will be more and more often mentioned in the press, after all, it worked out for Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, so why not for Realme?

Given that in Russia, sales of Realme XT are limited to the Internet and one distribution network, the buyer will have to choose a pig in a poke without first touching the device on their own or trusting the reviews. There is nothing criminal in this, but getting to know the device is still an important part of its future perception. Like it or not, no one can say except you. And this perception is formed only after you pick up the device.

As for me, the positioning of Realme XT is exactly about those who are looking for the best Chinese offer, do not see much difference between Chinese companies and are not tied to a specific brand. The Realme XT smartphone is an interesting device, and it has its strengths. Given that until October 15 it was sold at a promotional price of 19,990 rubles (the usual price is 23,000 rubles), it has already acquired a certain number of fans. Let's see what this device can do and how it looks against the background of its direct competitors.

Design, dimensions, controls

The smartphone is available in two body colors - white and blue, both options have overflow. I have a white device, and it somehow resembles a pearl, it also plays in the light.

The body is made of plastic, the design is somewhat reminiscent of that in Honor, the varnish is on top, and the color itself is on the substrate below. This is a very practical solution, inexpensive to manufacture, wearable in everyday life.

On the left side there are two volume keys, there is also a slot for two nanoSIM cards plus memory cards. On the right side is the on/off button. The device has a 3.5 mm jack, it is located on the bottom end. There is also a speaker, a USB Type C connector. There are two microphones, they are placed on the ends.

The camera modules are located vertically on the rear wall, they protrude.

The size of the device and its weight are typical for such models, there is nothing to complain about (158.7 x 75.2 x 8.6 mm, 183 grams). I like the device in my hands, and you can carry it with ease. But the cover that is included in the kit has an unpleasant blue tint, completely hides the game of the case. In it, the device looks withered, and it is getting bigger.

The design of the phone is familiar to the current generation of devices - it is no different for Samsung, Huawei, and other companies. A neat droplet on the screen, a cutout for the front camera. Display bezels are minimal.

Realme XT smartphone review

The fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, it works quickly. It practically does not react to wet fingers, which can be considered a minus. But there is face unlock, which for me has become the preferred way to access the contents of the smartphone.

Realme XT smartphone review

There are no complaints about the build quality, but we must keep in mind that this is a model of the middle segment, not even a flagship at all.

Display

Samsung is aggressively promoting its displays to third-party manufacturers. The matrix that Realme received is no different from those used in the A-series from Samsung or in the M30s. In any case, there are no such differences if you look at the technical specifications - 6.4 inches, 1080x2340 pixels (19.5: 9), SuperAMOLED, 402 ppi, automatic brightness control, AlwaysOn Display (clock only), Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Now let's see on two devices with brightness turned to maximum, on the left is Realme, on the right is Galaxy M30s.

Realme XT smartphone review

In my opinion, the screens are of the same class, but the minus for Realme is the work with fonts, the choice of the fonts themselves, they look noticeably simpler. Also, support for AlwaysOn Display is conditional, you can display only the clock, set a work schedule.

For those who are imbued with the fact that AMOLED screens have PWM and it hurts their heads, here is an interesting solution, flicker reduction - but the price for this is that the color reproduction suffers, the picture becomes noisy. But it’s almost impossible to see it, I don’t have microscopes in my eyes, and no matter how hard I looked, I didn’t see a difference at low backlight levels in the quality of the picture.

You can also adjust the screen color temperature, choose your preferences.

Unlike the major manufacturers who go crazy for color accuracy, it's not that important in this segment, and few people pay close attention to it, this model is no exception. The picture quality is good, but what else does an ordinary person need?

The brightness of the screen, even in manual mode, is adjustable over a wide range, which allows us to say that the display of this device is universal - it is well suited for viewing both web pages and videos.

Battery

The smartphone has a built-in Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, it supports fast charging, and such a charger (20 W) is included in the kit. There is no wireless charging, but for this segment it is normal.

Realme XT smartphone review

Here are some operating modes of the machine:

  • Video playback time at maximum brightness - up to 14 hours;
  • Work on the Internet via Wi-Fi - up to 15 hours, 3G - up to 12 hours, LTE - up to 14 hours;
  • Working time when talking in 4G - up to 15 hours.

Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review

In 30 minutes, the charger gives approximately 45% of the battery charge, a full charge takes about 70 minutes. On average, my smartphone worked quietly for up to two days with 4-4.5 hours of screen operation, a standard set of applications. This surprised me a little, since the same Galaxy A30 in my case worked for the same time, but gave 6.5-7 hours of screen operation. The question is clearly in the optimization of the software, a differently tuned radio part. These are small things that are not visible, but they greatly affect the overall performance of the solution and how long the smartphone lasts. It is possible to discharge a smartphone within one day, but most people will not be able to do this.

Memory, chipset, performance

It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset (10 nm technology), two Kryo 360 Gold cores with a frequency of up to 2.3 GHz, 6 Kryo 360 Silver cores with a frequency of up to 1.7 GHz, Adreno 616. This is a good, productive solution, no problems with it no. Look at the results of synthetic tests.

In Russia, the device comes with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal memory, plus it is possible to install memory cards. This is a good option, it will suit most.

Communications

The device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 version, NFC (Google Pay) is present, everything works fine.

In terms of navigation, everything is also very good (GPS / A-GPS / Beidou), a cold start on city streets takes 3-5 seconds, navigation accuracy is good, there are no complaints.

Camera

The front camera uses a Sony IMX471 module with a resolution of 16 megapixels. There are various effects, the ability to blur the background. Not a bad camera for selfies and for its class.

Realme XT smartphone review

The camera interface is simple and familiar, all additional modes must be enabled in the menu, including 64-megapixel.

Realme XT smartphone review

This device is one of the first with Quad-Bayer matrix from Samsung - GW1. This is a new generation module, and various companies have relied on it, including Xiaomi. I was interested to see what such a module can do in practice, but first I advise you to read the text about how such a matrix works so that there is no misunderstanding of the process.

I did not see a big difference in how the device shoots at a resolution of 64 megapixels and at the usual 16 megapixels. It is possible that looking with a magnifying glass, you can notice some points, but in general they are comparable. Feel free to refuse this permission and use the default, you won't lose anything.

I was impressed by the fact that in the middle segment the camera began to give a good quality picture in different conditions - it is far from ideal, but the number of shots that turn out to be good is clearly higher than the average for such devices. And the number of scenes that are processed better by automation has also expanded (the same AI scenarios).

Video recording does not raise any questions, the video quality is average - neither bad nor good. Average.

But in general, I was pleasantly surprised by this device, the new 64 megapixel module is not a miracle of miracles at all, but the result is good in most situations, and the model should be praised for this.

Software Features

Just like in OPPO smartphones, it uses its own shell called Color OS. Themes and design have been slightly changed to make it different from OPPO smartphones, but these are cosmetic changes. Shell version six. We had a complete review of the shell, it is almost one hundred percent identical to what you will find in this device.

I'll give you some screenshots of the interface so you can understand what the shell looks like.

Impressions

There were no complaints about the quality of voice transmission. From the point of view of signal reception, everything is more or less typical for Chinese smartphones, the antennas are not located in the most optimal way, in elevators, basements, where the signal is not the most stable, the connection goes down (the same A30 from Samsung or M30s work in these places ). But the difference manifests itself precisely in in such difficult places, in ordinary life you most likely won’t notice anything like that or don’t pay attention to this is attention.

Estimating Realme XT is difficult, as it is not clear what price to build on. If we take the price of 19,990 rubles as a starting point, then we get one picture. If the price is three thousand rubles higher, then it is fundamentally different. It seems to me that the XT will eventually cost 20 thousand rubles, since it has many competitors and they simply will not allow it to keep the price at another level.

The advantage of this device is an AMOLED screen, a fingerprint sensor built into the screen, good battery life and an excellent main camera module from Samsung. The fact that the 8/128 GB version is supplied to Russia is good, but this is also a problem - they will compare with versions of other companies where there is less memory, and they will not go into the jungle and reasoning. Therefore, it was necessary to make the version cheaper or initially leave the price of the XT at a low level.

In the segment of about 20 thousand rubles, we have expanse to choose from. For example, you can get the Galaxy A30s, which also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, AMOLED screen (lower resolution), triple rear camera (also lower resolution). On the side of Samsung, not technical characteristics, but rather the coherence of OneUI and the feeling that the device leaves on its own. Alternatively, you can look at the regular A30, in which the fingerprint sensor is placed on the rear panel. These devices are defining in their segment, they are bestsellers.

But if you are ready to look at a real competitor for Realme XT, then it will be Redmi Note 8 Pro from Xiaomi. It has a slightly larger battery (4500 mAh), but an IPS display. Processor Helio, but in terms of performance, these solutions are comparable. The main thing is that in Xiaomi the main camera module is exactly the same Samsung GW1, but the software is much inferior, image processing is worse. It might be fixed in the future, but for now, that's the way it is. But the cost of this solution is 19,990 rubles, which makes it the favorite (6/128 GB). So far, Realme definitely cannot compete with Xiaomi in terms of market perception.

Realme XT smartphone review

The result of studying Realme XT is interesting - the model turned out to be curious and quite sane for its class, I rather like it than not. The unusual interface repels, but this is a matter of aesthetics, on the contrary, this shell will be nicer for someone. The emphasis on the price / quality ratio turned out to be correct, the model is perceived as adequate in its segment. But the presence of the strongest competitors from Samsung, as well as Xiaomi, does not leave her a chance for big, noticeable sales. On the other hand, Realme does not need them now, the company wants to gradually introduce the market to its product.

I have no doubt that this name will be more and more often mentioned in the press, after all, it worked out for Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, so why not for Realme?

Given that in Russia, sales of Realme XT are limited to the Internet and one distribution network, the buyer will have to choose a pig in a poke without first touching the device on their own or trusting the reviews. There is nothing criminal in this, but getting to know the device is still an important part of its future perception. Like it or not, no one can say except you. And this perception is formed only after you pick up the device.

As for me, the positioning of Realme XT is exactly about those who are looking for the best Chinese offer, do not see much difference between Chinese companies and are not tied to a specific brand. The Realme XT smartphone is an interesting device, and it has its strengths. Given that until October 15 it was sold at a promotional price of 19,990 rubles (the usual price is 23,000 rubles), it has already acquired a certain number of fans. Let's see what this device can do and how it looks against the background of its direct competitors.

Design, dimensions, controls

The smartphone is available in two body colors - white and blue, both options have overflow. I have a white device, and it somehow resembles a pearl, it also plays in the light.

The case is made of plastic, the design is somewhat reminiscent of that in Honor, there is a varnish coating on top, and the color itself is on the substrate below. This is a very practical solution, inexpensive to manufacture, wearable in everyday life.

On the left side there are two volume keys, there is also a slot for two nanoSIM cards plus memory cards. On the right side is the on/off button. The device has a 3.5 mm jack, it is located on the bottom end. There is also a speaker, a USB Type C connector. There are two microphones, they are placed on the ends.

The camera modules are located vertically on the rear wall, they protrude.

The size of the device and its weight are typical for such models, there is nothing to complain about (158.7 x 75.2 x 8.6 mm, 183 grams). I like the device in my hands, and you can carry it with ease. But the cover that is included in the kit has an unpleasant blue tint, completely hides the game of the case. In it, the device looks withered, and it is getting bigger.

Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review

The design of the phone is familiar to the current generation of devices - it is no different for Samsung, Huawei, and other companies. A neat droplet on the screen, a cutout for the front camera. Display bezels are minimal.

Realme XT smartphone review

In my opinion, the screens are of the same class, but the minus for Realme is the work with fonts, the choice of the fonts themselves, they look noticeably simpler. Also, support for AlwaysOn Display is conditional, you can display only the clock, set a work schedule.

For those who are imbued with the fact that AMOLED screens have PWM and it hurts their heads, here is an interesting solution, flicker reduction - but the price for this is that the color reproduction suffers, the picture becomes noisy. But it’s almost impossible to see it, I don’t have microscopes in my eyes, and no matter how hard I looked, I didn’t see a difference at low backlight levels in the quality of the picture.

You can also adjust the color temperature of the screen, choose your preferences.

Unlike the major manufacturers who go crazy for color accuracy, it's not that important in this segment, and few people pay close attention to it, this model is no exception. The picture quality is good, but what else does an ordinary person need?

The brightness of the screen, even in manual mode, is adjustable over a wide range, which allows us to say that the display of this device is universal - it is well suited for viewing both web pages and videos.

Battery

The smartphone has a built-in Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, it supports fast charging, and such a charger (20 W) is included in the kit. There is no wireless charging, but for this segment it is normal.

Realme XT smartphone review

Here are some operating modes of the machine:

  • Video playback time at maximum brightness - up to 14 hours;
  • Work on the Internet via Wi-Fi - up to 15 hours, 3G - up to 12 hours, LTE - up to 14 hours;
  • Working time when talking in 4G - up to 15 hours.

Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review Realme XT smartphone review

In 30 minutes, the charger gives approximately 45% of the battery charge, a full charge takes about 70 minutes. On average, my smartphone worked quietly for up to two days with 4-4.5 hours of screen operation, a standard set of applications. This surprised me a little, since the same Galaxy A30 in my case worked for the same time, but gave 6.5-7 hours of screen operation. The question is clearly in the optimization of the software, a differently tuned radio part. These are small things that are not visible, but they greatly affect the overall performance of the solution and how long the smartphone lasts. It is possible to discharge a smartphone within one day, but most people will not be able to do this.

Memory, chipset, performance

It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset (10 nm technology), two Kryo 360 Gold cores with a frequency of up to 2.3 GHz, 6 Kryo 360 Silver cores with a frequency of up to 1.7 GHz, Adreno 616. This is a good, productive solution, no problems with it no. Look at the results of synthetic tests.

In Russia, the device comes with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal memory, plus it is possible to install memory cards. This is a good option, it will suit most.

Communications

The device has dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 version, NFC (Google Pay) is present, everything works fine.

In terms of navigation, everything is also very good (GPS / A-GPS / Beidou), a cold start on city streets takes 3-5 seconds, navigation accuracy is good, there are no complaints.

Camera

The front camera uses a Sony IMX471 module with a resolution of 16 megapixels. There are various effects, the ability to blur the background. Not a bad camera for selfies and for its class.

Realme XT smartphone review

The camera interface is simple and familiar, all additional modes must be enabled in the menu, including 64-megapixel.

Realme XT smartphone review

This device is one of the first with Quad-Bayer matrix from Samsung - GW1. This is a new generation module, and various companies have relied on it, including Xiaomi. I was interested to see what such a module can do in practice, but first I advise you to read the text about how such a matrix works so that there is no misunderstanding of the process.

I did not see a big difference in how the device shoots at a resolution of 64 megapixels and at the usual 16 megapixels. It is possible that looking with a magnifying glass, you can notice some moments, but in general they are comparable. Feel free to refuse this permission and use the default, you won't lose anything.

I was impressed by the fact that in the middle segment the camera began to give a good quality picture in different conditions - it is far from ideal, but the number of shots that turn out to be good is clearly higher than the average for such devices. And the number of scenes that are processed better by automation has also expanded (the same AI-scenarios).

Look at how digital zoom works, I like its capabilities (x5). The picture remains quite clear, not at all loose, as it once was.

Более того, в смартфоне есть отдельная 2-мегапиксельная камера для макросъемки, она недорогая и сильно уступает основному модулю.

Мне больше нравится, как обрабатывает снимок цифровой зум. Надобности в камере для макро просто нет.

Video recording does not raise any questions, the video quality is average - neither bad nor good. Average.

But in general, I was pleasantly surprised by this device, the new 64 megapixel module is not a miracle of miracles at all, but the result is good in most situations, and the model should be praised for this.

Software Features

Just like in OPPO smartphones, it uses its own shell called Color OS. Themes and design have been slightly changed to make it different from OPPO smartphones, but these are cosmetic changes. Shell version six. We had a complete review of the shell, it is almost one hundred percent identical to what you will find in this device.

I'll give you some screenshots of the interface so you can understand what the shell looks like.

Impressions

There were no complaints about the quality of voice transmission. From the point of view of signal reception, everything is more or less typical for Chinese smartphones, the antennas are not located in the most optimal way, in elevators, basements, where the signal is not the most stable, the connection goes down (the same A30 from Samsung or M30s work in these places ). But the difference manifests itself precisely in in such difficult places, in ordinary life you most likely won’t notice anything like that or don’t pay attention to this is attention.

Estimating Realme XT is difficult, as it is not clear what price to build on. If we take the price of 19,990 rubles as a starting point, then we get one picture. If the price is three thousand rubles higher, then it is fundamentally different. It seems to me that the XT will eventually cost 20 thousand rubles, since it has many competitors and they simply will not allow it to keep the price at another level.

The advantage of this device is an AMOLED screen, a fingerprint sensor built into the screen, good battery life and an excellent main camera module from Samsung. The fact that the 8/128 GB version is supplied to Russia is good, but this is also a problem - they will compare with versions of other companies where there is less memory, and they will not go into the jungle and reasoning. Therefore, it was necessary to make the version cheaper or initially leave the price of the XT at a low level.

In the segment of about 20 thousand rubles, we have expanse to choose from. For example, you can get the Galaxy A30s, which also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, AMOLED screen (lower resolution), triple rear camera (also lower resolution). On the side of Samsung, not technical characteristics, but rather the coherence of OneUI and the feeling that the device leaves on its own. Alternatively, you can look at the regular A30, in which the fingerprint sensor is placed on the rear panel. These devices are defining in their segment, they are bestsellers.

But if you are ready to look at a real competitor for Realme XT, then it will be Redmi Note 8 Pro from Xiaomi. It has a slightly larger battery (4500 mAh), but an IPS display. Processor Helio, but in terms of performance, these solutions are comparable. The main thing is that in Xiaomi the main camera module is exactly the same Samsung GW1, but the software is much inferior, image processing is worse. It might be fixed in the future, but for now, that's the way it is. But the cost of this solution is 19,990 rubles, which makes it the favorite (6/128 GB). So far, Realme definitely cannot compete with Xiaomi in terms of market perception.

Realme XT smartphone review

The result of studying Realme XT is interesting - the model turned out to be curious and quite sane for its class, I rather like it than not. The unusual interface repels, but this is a matter of aesthetics, on the contrary, this shell will be nicer for someone. The emphasis on the price / quality ratio turned out to be correct, the model is perceived as adequate in its segment. But the presence of the strongest competitors from Samsung, as well as Xiaomi, does not leave her a chance for big, noticeable sales. On the other hand, Realme does not need them now, the company wants to gradually introduce the market to its product.

Realme XT smartphone review

Realme is a subsidiary of OPPO, although the latter is heavily hidden and not advertised in any way. The strategy is exactly the same as that behind the division of Huawei and Honor within the same parent company, this is to strengthen its own sales through a new name plus positioning in other price segments. The Realme brand is what OnePlus was supposed to be, but never did - good value for money, outstanding performance in some ways. But unlike OnePlus, the focus here is not on the flagship market, but on all price segments, except for the budget one.

It is important to understand that Realme is unknown in Russia, the brand is just appearing, and therefore there is no understanding among the buyer what kind of brand it is and what it is eaten with. But about the same in other countries of the world, a fresh brand that follows in the footsteps of its predecessors.

The design of the phone is familiar to the current generation of devices - it is no different for Samsung, Huawei, and other companies. A neat droplet on the screen, a cutout for the front camera. Display bezels are minimal.

The fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, it works quickly. It practically does not react to wet fingers, which can be considered a minus. But there is face unlock, which for me has become the preferred way to access the contents of the smartphone.

There are no complaints about the build quality, but we must keep in mind that this is a model of the middle segment, not even a flagship at all.

Display

Samsung is aggressively promoting its displays to third-party manufacturers. The matrix that Realme received is no different from those used in the A-series from Samsung or in the M30s. In any case, there are no such differences if you look at the technical specifications - 6.4 inches, 1080x2340 pixels (19.5: 9), SuperAMOLED, 402 ppi, automatic brightness control, AlwaysOn Display (clock only), Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Now let's see on two devices with brightness turned to maximum, on the left is Realme, on the right is Galaxy M30s.

Battery

The smartphone has a built-in Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, it supports fast charging, and such a charger (20 W) is included in the kit. There is no wireless charging, but for this segment it is normal.

Moreover, the smartphone has a separate 2-megapixel camera for macro photography, it is inexpensive and much inferior to the main module.

I like the way the digital zoom handles the shot. There is simply no need for a macro camera.

Video recording does not raise any questions, the video quality is average - neither bad nor good. Average.

But in general, I was pleasantly surprised by this device, the new 64 megapixel module is not a miracle of miracles at all, but the result is good in most situations, and the model should be praised for this.
