Realme XT Full Review
Build and Design
The device features slim bezels which give it a sleek and sturdy design, highlighted by a plastic frame that looks like aluminium. The phone is wrapped in Corning Gorilla Glass 5 both on the front and at the back. The frontal glass is flat while that at the rear slightly curves outwards. The Corning Gorilla Glass protects the screen from shattering in case of a fall.
The phone is handy and is not likely to slip out of the grip when held. The volume rocker is to the left while a power button lies to the right. A single speaker, USB-C port and a headphone jack are placed at the bottom of the device. There is an optical in-display fingerprint scanner placed under the 6.4-inch AMOLED touchscreen.
The device features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. The aspect ratio is 19.5:9. The display is quite good as it is very bright. Viewing media on Realme XT is quite enjoyable as the device also supports Widevine L1. Widevine L1 allows you to enjoy high-resolution content with ease.
Realme XT is powered by Snapdragon 712 chipset which is common to mid-range smartphones. This chipset offers slightly faster CPU performance than Snapdragon 710 although both have the same GPU. The phone performance is okay and is efficient for everyday use such as browsing and multitasking.
The device is also capable of handling the gaming needs of the casual gamer without much challenge. Games such as Asphalt 9.0 and PUBG can be played smoothly on the device although there may be occasional frame drop. Extensive gameplay can lead to the device heating slightly so heavy gaming should be discouraged.
Realme XT features a rear quad-camera setup, with the primary camera being 64MP. Other rear cameras are 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP dedicated macro and 2MP depth sensors. The 64MP wide camera captures captivating images as it uses Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor. It amplifies the quality of images by stacking and fusion so standard shots taken with the camera look really good.
The dynamic range is quite good while the Chroma Boost option which works like the HDR gives you a slightly wider dynamic range. There is a useful Night mode too which works by using a combination of image stacking long exposures to generate fairly good looking pictures in poor lighting conditions.
The Macro mode frankly doesn’t generate reasonably sharp images so it is useless. The Portrait mode, however, captures good looking portrait images. The selfie camera is a 16MP front-facing camera, equally capable of taking great images.
In terms of video shooting ability, Realme XT can shoot up to 4K at 30fps while the 1080p mode can shoot up to 60fps. Electronic Image Stabilization is available when shooting at 1080p but not at 4K resolution.
Realme XT is powered by a 4000mAh battery which is pretty much standard for mid-range mobile devices. The battery life is good and the device is equipped with fast-changing technology. The phone comes with a 20W 3.0 charger which charges the phone fully from 0% battery level in under 90 minutes.
The Realme XT is a very good mid-range device that represents good value for money. It is currently one of the best devices in its segment of the smartphone market. The phone design is aesthetically pleasing. The processing ability and speed compares favourably with those of rival devices. While one of the obvious standouts of the device is its 64MP camera which is the first of its kind on a mobile device. Making a strong case for this device is not so hard at all as it is sleek, powerful, efficient and capable of capturing breathtaking images.
The phone’s audio output is very good which makes listening to music on the device very enjoyable. The battery life is good, and the fast-charging ability means powering your phone when pressed for time is not an issue at all. So overall, this phone represents what a mid-range smartphone should be based on the current trends. This is not to say it is perfect, it sure has its drawbacks too like any other mobile device.
