Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) Review: A Smartphone Built for Speed?

Published

NDTV Gadgets 360 Hindi
Realme GT Neo 2 was a brand new smartphone and was the first smartphone to be launched in the Neo series in India. Despite its mediocre camera performance, it was a good mid-range gaming smartphone thanks to its Snapdragon 800 series processor. It also had a good cooling system and an aggressive price tag of Rs 31,999.

Realme recently launched its successor GT Neo 3. It has a main camera with OIS function and a new processor. It also comes with a special 150W fast charging model which I will be reviewing today. Is the Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) a step ahead of its predecessor? Let us know in the review how it competes with other premium smartphones in this segment.

Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) PRICE IN INDIA

Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) price in India is Rs 42,999. This model gets a 4500mAh battery and comes with a 150W charger in the box. Its 80W model gets a 5000mAh battery. This model is available in two variants. One gets 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, priced at Rs 36,999. The second variant has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. It is priced at Rs 38,999. Both models are available in three color options that include Asphalt Black, Nitro Blue and Spring White. On these, racing stripes are available on the rear panel in Nitro Blue and Spring White, while the black variant has a smooth finish.

Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) Design

The build of the Realme GT Neo 3 is similar to that of the GT Neo 2. The difference is seen in its new finish, the rear camera layout and the central selfie hole. Instead of the glossy dual-tone glass back panel found on the GT Neo 2, the company has now given a simple matte finish AG glass on which fingerprints fall off very quickly.

The GT Neo 3 feels more premium than the OnePlus 10R and feels good in the hand. It weighs 188 grams, which isn’t too heavy, but can’t be said to be any better for one-handed operation. The large display gets Gorilla Glass 5 protection and fingerprints are visible on it. But they can be cleaned easily. Its perforated AMOLED display has thin bezels all around, which adds more value to its premium look.

The middle frame of the phone is made of polycarbonate. Like the back panel, it also has a matte finish, so it feels like it glides in the hand. But the company has provided a clear TPU case with the case which provides a good grip and even after applying the phone design is easily visible to all.

Realme GT Neo 3 Specifications and Software

MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC is provided in Realme GT Neo 3. The company has provided an imaging chipset in it which is called Dedicated Display Processor. The company says this will reduce power consumption and improve gaming performance. For connectivity, it supports Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC and Type-C port as well as a satellite navigation system. The fingerprint scanner is placed inside the display and works well.

Realme has created a better user interface by mixing Material You and Realme UI with Android 12. The phone’s Realme UI 3.0 looks similar to the stock one and its icons look a bit different from the Pixel phones. All widgets in Android 12 work as expected and its theme engine changes the color of the keyboard, widgets and other icons depending on the installed wallpaper. The Personalization section in the Settings app looks similar to OnePlus and Oppo. In this you can customize things like icon shape, quick settings icon and system font.

realme

Like other realme phones, it also gets pre-installed third-party apps from around the world. But these softwares do not spoil the experience and can be uninstalled if needed. But the notifications I got from the Themes Store app bothered me a lot.

Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) Performance

The Realme GT Neo 3 has a 6.7-inch FullHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It shines brightly even in direct sunlight and has no problem reading. Colors look quite vivid in the default Vivid Screen color mode. The refresh rate is customizable, but can only switch between 60Hz and 120Hz, depending on the application running. It ran at 60Hz while watching a movie and 120Hz while navigating the UI. In games, the display locked at 60Hz compared to what should normally be 120Hz, which disappointed me.

realme

It lacks HDR10 video streaming certification for apps like Netflix, but standard content looks sharp, with decent black levels. The stereo speakers provided in the phone deliver loud and clear sound, making the video and gaming experience much better.

realme

The performance of its software was also good. Its benchmark scores come close to those of a phone with a Snapdragon 888 chip. The phone scored 8,10,225 points on AnTuTu. It scored 969 and 4,065 points in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. It managed 54fps and 60fps in the T-rex and Manhattan 3.1 gaming tests on GFXBench, while the Snapdragon 888-powered Xiaomi 11T Pro scored 121fps and 100fps here.

Its real-world gaming performance also didn’t garner much attention until GT mode was activated. In normal mode, games like Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends were seen to drop frames at high graphics setting, but ran fine in medium mode. In GT mode, the game ran well even at the highest setting possible, but it didn’t feel as smooth as I would have liked. Surprisingly, I also got a 60fps mode when playing Asphalt 9:Legends, which I’ve only noticed so far on a device with a Snapdragon processor.

The battery life of the phone is good. It lasted a day and a half on a single charge while using heavy gaming and camera on it. The phone lasted 19 hours and 26 minutes in our HD video test, which is pretty good for a premium smartphone.

Its 150W charger charges the phone from zero to 100 percent in just 16 minutes. This is the fastest charging speed ever found in a phone. The phone also got very hot, which made me a bit worried. However, the company claims that many safety measures have been taken in it to prevent any kind of accident. Like the OnePlus 10R Endurance Edition, it also gets a notification that warns the phone about overheating while charging.

Realme GT Neo 3 Cameras

The main camera (OIS) in the Realme GT Neo 3 is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor. The second camera is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and the third camera is a 2-megapixel macro shooter. Focus is fixed in both secondary cameras. A 16-megapixel camera is given at the front for selfies. In this, the company has used a Samsung sensor whose aperture is larger and the field of view is also larger.

realme

Compared to the GT Neo 2, the phone’s daylight performance turns out to be very good. Exposure was good in landscape shots and dynamic range was also good. Photos taken with the main camera had decent detail, but photos looked a bit saturated, especially compared to photos taken with the ultra-wide camera.

Photos taken with the ultra-wide camera provide a large field of view of 120 degrees, but these photos have a relatively limited dynamic range and the edges of the frame give a slight blurring effect. Sharpness was good on close-up photos of flowers taken with the main camera, but the photo looked saturated. Its 2X digital zoom works well, but picture detail falls off a bit.

img202206091123705
img202206091123707
img202206091123833

Photos taken in portrait mode managed colors well. They were softened and looked natural. Edge detection was good and dynamic range was good, along with background exposure. Selfies taken with its front-facing camera were a bit too sharp and looked saturated. The background looked too bright. Selfies in portrait mode seemed better in quality, but edge detection was average here.

img20220620214059
img20220620212443

The macro camera took medium shots with a purple fringing effect on the edge. The focus system is a bit of a bother here. Photos taken in low light with the phone’s primary camera have good detail and the dynamic range is also better. In the photo taken with night mode, the scene appeared brighter, making the bright areas of the original scene appear more blown out. Selfies taken in low light were not special and felt soft with less detail. Low-light selfies with portrait mode were shot with a lot of noise that didn’t have much texture to the subject.

The quality of videos recorded by the phone was quite good. Videos shot at 1080p in daylight were good, but detail wasn’t that great. Videos shot in 4K delivered good detail, but the dynamic range here was lacking. They also lacked stabilization. Its AI Highlight feature improved dynamic range, but videos weren’t as smooth and sharp, and resolution was limited to 1080p 30fps. Video recorded at 1080p in low light had limited dynamic range and looked soft. Footage recorded at 30fps in 4K looked the best, but again lacked stabilization.

Compared to the Realme GT Neo 2, the image quality of its primary camera has become much better. The company has also used this sensor in budget smartphones like the Realme 9 Pro + 5G. I liked the picture quality, but it is far behind competing devices like the iQoo 9 SE.

our solution

As for the GT Neo 3 (150W), I agree with the company that this is a smartphone built for speed. It has a racing-inspired design, a 150W charging system, a clear 120Hz display and a processor with decent performance. Its camera is quite improved compared to the old model.

Having more features does not make it a competitive smartphone. Apart from the upgrade from the older model, it comes close to the rest of the competition. Its 150W charging system tends to overheat the phone, and its 120Hz refresh rate doesn’t work for most games I tried to play. The phone lags slightly behind rivals with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 in terms of performance. It doesn’t get features like IP rating and wireless charging that are available on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G and Apple iPhone (2022) at the same price.

I’d even go so far as to say that its regular 80W model also seems a bit expensive, as the iQoo 9 SE offers a better camera and performance for a lower starting price. If you are a fan of reality, then you can buy the Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) at its current price or you can also consider buying it as the smartphone with the fastest charging speed right now.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G Review: Best Design, Average Camera Performance

Published

on

Gadgets 360 Hindi
Oppo’s Reno 8 Pro 5G is the company’s most expensive Reno smartphone in India, priced at Rs 45,999. The phone is really good to look at, but if you take a cursory glance at its specification, then it turns out to be a mid-range phone. Does the Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G serve only in decorations or is the strength in its overall performance and camera charged for such a price?

This phone matches the Realme GT Neo 3 and OnePlus 10R in many ways, but does it leave the same shortcomings as the rest of the competition? I’ve been using the Reno 8 Pro for a few weeks and here I’m going to tell you everything you need to know before you buy this phone.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G Price

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G is available in a single variant in India where we can see 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone is priced at Rs 45,999. It comes in two finishes that include Glazed Green and Glazed Black. I had his glazed green module. Realme GT Neo 3 and OnePlus 10R 5G come with a lower starting price and offer similar specifications. But the presence of one variant in the Reno 8 Pro 5G means that it has only been launched against premium smartphones.

Design of Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G

The design of the Oppo Reno 8 Pro grabs attention at first glance. It looks quite attractive compared to other smartphones in this price segment. At 7.34 mm, it is not very thin, but it cannot be called thick either. The phone weighs 183 grams, which is surprisingly light considering its aluminum alloy frame, which not only looks good but also feels premium. There is a glossy glass panel at the back which is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and does not allow fingerprints to remain on it easily.

Oppo

Its cameras make its design stand out. The lens cutout fits the camera assembly perfectly. In fact, the camera module is an extension of the rear glass panel. The module has a slight slope that my first finger would fit under, and the phone felt pretty easy to handle with one hand.
The phone’s display is flat, but has a slight curve at the edges that blends in with the sharp corners of the frame. I’ve never seen bezels this thin at this price. The display has very thin bezels on the top and bottom, but even thinner bezels are placed on the left and right sides, which are just 1.48mm. Thanks to this, the phone looks very modern and sharp in appearance.

This time, Oppo took a mature step instead of including the fancy design of the Reno series like a shark fin selfie camera and an IP54 dust and water resistance rating on the phone. Motorola Edge 30 Pro is the only smartphone in this segment that comes with almost the same IP52 rating.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G Specifications and Software

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G features a MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max SoC, along with a MariSilicon X NPU, which the company says is primarily used to aid video recording. MariSilicon X NPU is not new, it was first announced along with the launch of Oppo Find X5 Pro, a premium smartphone, but it was not launched in India.

The Reno 8 Pro 5G doesn’t offer a storage expansion option, but the phone has room for two nano-SIM cards with dual 5G support. The phone supports dual standby and also supports standalone and non-standalone 5G bands. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3 and NFC. In the box you get a USB Type-C to Type-A cable, an 80W charger and a clear TPU case.

Oppo

Talking about the software, the company has kept certain parts of Color OS for its own smartphones. The peculiarity of customizing the phone is that it can also choose which color from the selected wallpaper to choose. Also, its unique font and OPPO’s O-Haptics (vibration system) are some of the things I didn’t see on the OnePlus 10R 5G Endurance Edition or the Realme GT Neo 3 (150W).

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G’s O-Haptics system uses an X-axis linear motor that is very precise for feedback. It also works well when used for the phone’s 3D ringtone feature. The 3D ringtone feature is also an exclusive feature of Oppa. Oppo has also provided a floating window feature that lets you open multiple apps in small floating windows for sharing. The Reno 8 Pro 5G runs on ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12. The company promises two years of Android OS updates and four years of security updates, which is good.

Oppo

One thing I didn’t like about it was the daily notifications from its themed app. It kept asking me to download a new wallpaper or buy a new Oppo smartphone. Smartphones priced above Rs 40k also had many pre-installed third party apps like Dailyhunt, Josh, Moj and PhonePe etc. But it was nice that many of them could be removed. Apart from that, Oppo also had many apps like Soloop Cut, O Relax, DocVault, etc. They were useful though, but could also be removed if needed.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G performance

In terms of benchmarks, the phone performed as expected. In AnTuTu, the phone scored 901 points and 3532 points in single and multi-core tests respectively. The software performance of the phone is also good. It gets Dimensity 8100-Max SoC with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The phone is very fast when multitasking and running multiple apps. Its display with 120Hz refresh rate makes the software experience smoother. The move to a flexible AMOLED display benefited the company, making it possible to make the bezel extremely thin.

Oppo

Its 6.7-inch FullHD+ display is quite bright. Colors are vibrant and viewing angles are incredible. Compared to Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) and OnePlus 10R Endurance Edition, its display is much better. It comes with HDR10+ certification and makes it a pleasure to watch content on apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Its stereo speakers are quite loud and produce very clear sound even when the volume is turned up to full. Their output is quite balanced.

I didn’t like the fingerprint scanner shown on its display. For some reason it couldn’t read my fingerprints. Then I found that if you put a little more emphasis on it, then it is easily recognized.

The gaming performance of the phone is quite good. Whether using the camera app or playing games, its graphite-based cooling system prevents the phone from overheating. Call of Duty: Mobile runs smoothly even at the highest graphics settings. Asphalt: 9 Legends also ran very smoothly, but surprisingly no 60fps mode was enabled. The phone has a touch sample rate of 360Hz, which supports fast-paced gaming, but has room for improvement.

The phone’s battery is not upgradeable. Like the Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G, it gets a 4500mAh battery along with 80W fast charging. Using this charger, the phone charges from 0 to 52 percent in 15 minutes and gets a full charge in 34 minutes. The phone lasted 18 hours and 25 minutes in our HD video test. With normal use, the phone runs smoothly for a day and a half, which is great for a slim device. Wireless charging is not available here, which is easily available in other smartphones in this segment or below.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G cameras

The triple rear camera setup is available on the Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G. It has a 50-megapixel primary camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor, but no OIS support. The second camera is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and the third is a 2-megapixel macro camera. It has a 32-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and comes with autofocus. Oppo’s camera interface will be familiar to OnePlus and Realme users. The interface is very simple, but advanced options for some modes can be accessed by tapping the ellipsis button.

img20220726111947

Photos taken with the main camera in daylight were sharp and clear with good color reproduction. Results with the ultra-wide camera were very average, with limited dynamic range, which meant there was less detail in shadow areas. It felt like the macro camera was just edited to fill the specs as it wasn’t very easy to take a picture with it and the focus was fixed. The real difference in improving the AI ​​scene is visible in this phone. It provides good dynamic range when taking still photos, especially in daylight.

Selfies were sharp and detail and dynamic range were good. Selfie portraits were also good, but the phone failed to expose the background very well. Images looked good in low light, provided there was a light source nearby. I expected to do better with the 32MP selfie camera with autofocus.

When the photo was taken in auto mode with the main camera in low light, detail was good. The lack of OIS was felt here as the camera failed to capture raised grain detail well on any surface. A texture with black spots was found in the dark area. While capturing the photo here, the phone took more than one to two seconds, and in night mode, this time went up to 3 seconds.

img20220721210346
img20220721210402
img20220721213622

The camera was very capable of capturing details in night mode as it also captured details that I couldn’t even see with my eyes. The noise reduction algorithm is more aggressive, with the long exposure and lack of OIS, the photo doesn’t come out as good as it could be. Photos taken under lots of street lights were sharp, but the texture was a bit flat here as well.

Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G’s main camera uses DOL HDR video recording at the hardware level, with support for Oppo’s MariSilicon X NPU. Better dynamic range is claimed with this system. However, in my experience, 1080p 30fps video was average and lacked detail. 1080p 60fps video was quite shaky, stabilization was a major issue. Video came out fine at 4K 30fps. There was plenty of detail and the dynamic range was also good.

After turning on the AI ​​Highlight function, the video started playing unstable frame rates and details were also reduced. Despite shooting in daylight, the texture remains soft and noise is visible even in dark areas. 4K low-light video was recorded at its best quality when shot in normal mode. I found it better to keep AI Highlight off as it degraded the video quality.

our solution

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G clearly looks like a premium smartphone. It’s lightweight, stylish and looks premium even at Rs 45,999. It’s hard to find another smartphone with such design and build quality at this price. Unfortunately, your hopes start to dwindle when it comes to the camera. The camera is not the best for the price of this phone.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G stands out here as a solid option with better hardware and camera performance, with a decent macro camera at a lower price. It misses a bit in design but offers tremendous value for money at a starting price of Rs 37,999.

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G phone has come a long way from its old model, so it now stands shoulder to shoulder with OnePlus and Motorola. There is also the OnePlus 9RT 5G which offers decent camera performance, is equipped with a Snapdragon 888 SoC, a 120Hz OLED panel and is priced at Rs 42,999. Then there is the Motorola Edge 30 Pro which has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, a quality rear camera , a 60-megapixel selfie camera, IP52 rating, and a hands-on Android software experience.

The OnePlus 10R Endurance Edition and Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) are also available at the same price, but you can check them out if fast charging is your first priority. Finally, there is the Redmi K50i 5G, which is priced at Rs 25,999. It’s equipped with the same processor, 144Hz display, 5080mAh battery, but the phone is built with a gaming bent.

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G will appeal to those who are fans of Oppo, want a very attractive design, want an IP rating and also want fast charging. The phone ended up being a bit expensive and not the best value for money.

OnePlus 10T 5G first impression: Things have changed!

Published

on

Gadgets 360 Hindi
OnePlus isn’t just a phone, it’s an individual brand. The company has carved a niche for Android fans with its never-failing tagline and flexible software. The growing popularity of the company has brought it to the mainstream and the prices of the phones are increasing continuously, but still the company is doing something different to make the fans happy. Now, however, all that has begun to change. OnePlus is now merging with its subsidiary Oppo, the software efforts of the two companies are merging, and that separate boundary of OnePlus seems to be eroding now.

The company’s new OnePlus 10T 5G is quite attractive. The company is saving the “T” smartphones for a mid-year launch. But no OnePlus 10 has been coming here. This phone is new from the OnePlus 10 Pro and has some features that can be called modern since it was launched as the successor to the OnePlus 10 Pro. The base variant of the phone comes for Rs 49,999 in which 8GB RAM and 128GB storage are available. Above that is the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage model that comes for Rs 54,999. If you want to go even higher, there is also a 16GB RAM and 256GB storage variant that costs Rs 55,999.

So what exactly do you get from the company? Is it just an old phone, or has OnePlus found a new way to make it stand out? Here we recount the first impressions of the OnePlus 10T 5G.

Instead of the big box of OnePlus, now the company has given a standard design. There is a protective case, a red Cable Club membership card, some stickers and a large letter from the company for the phone. There’s also a 160W charger and a red USB Type-C cable.

In the camera layout of the smartphone, you will see a similarity with the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, but the rear panel of the phone is quite prominent. You’ll also find out how reflective its back panel is. The volume buttons are given on the left and the power button is on the right. There is no warning slider here. At the top there are small speakers and a microphone hole. A tray for two SIM cards, a USB Type-C port and the main speaker are located at the bottom.

The OnePlus 10T 5G didn’t feel very premium to me, even though its back panel is made of glass. At 8.75mm, it’s quite thick, and at 203.5 grams, it’s also quite heavy. It comes in a slightly textured finish Moonstone Black and glossy Jade Green. We have its Jade Green variant.

All variants of the OnePlus 10T 5G support 150W charging. If you are concerned about safety, then the company has provided a complete list of measures taken for this, which we will talk about in the full review. You can also charge other devices including laptops as it comes with USB-PD support up to 45W.

During the setup process, you’ll get privacy and customization options. You can choose the system font, set up security, and even practice navigation gestures. It comes preloaded with apps like Netflix, OnePlus Community and Game Manager. This device comes with Android 12 based OxygenOS 12.1 with July security patch. If you dig deep into the settings, you’ll find some customization options. The company announced OxygenOS 13, but unfortunately the 10T 5G does not come with it.

oneplus

The company has termed the design of this phone as weightless or weightless, which can be said to be useful and more accurate. The company has removed the alert slider from it, which was the most visible feature to differentiate it from other Android players. This simple switch took up a lot of space in the body, and the company says it prefers that space to accommodate the battery capacity. In addition, better cooling and antenna are also included here. The company seems to have tried to save some costs, but after removing the 3.5mm headphone jack a few years ago, I still don’t see how things have improved for the user.

Apart from all this, the company has also not provided wireless charging, official IP rating and e-SIM support, which the company thinks its fans will live without. Even the Hasselblad camera brand has been removed. The company says the 10 Pro 5G is still a flagship option for those who want better camera capabilities. While the 10T 5G will appeal more to those who prioritize gaming and fast charging more.

The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC with improved cooling system, 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB UFS 3.1 storage. For the best option, the company says you can run 30 apps simultaneously in the background, so you can pick up where you left off.

The phone’s 6.7-inch Fluid AMOLED panel features full HD+ resolution, 120Hz peak refresh rate and an integrated fingerprint sensor. The edges are thin all around and there is no thick chin. The display supports HDR 10+ and is made of Gorilla Glass 5. The OnePlus 10T 5G also has a 4800mAh battery, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC and GPS.

The main rear camera with OIS is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor with f/1.8 aperture. Along with this, a primary 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera are also available. The front camera is 16-megapixel. These specs aren’t very good, but the company promises richly detailed photos and videos on the back of 10-bit color capture support and better processing algorithms. Video recording can be done at up to 4K 60fps.

The company’s latest launch, the 10R, looks like the Realme GT Neo 3 and doesn’t quite fit into OnePlus’ plan. Now the 10T 5G is also presented in the same style, which again raises the question of who is this phone for? Where does it fit into the heavily discounted OnePlus 10 Pro 5G? Are the compromises worth it? And most importantly, is OnePlus still OnePlus?

On top of all that, we’re in the process of testing the 10T 5G to see how it balances camera quality, battery life, charging speed, design, and the OxygenOS experience with CPU power. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360, detailed review coming soon.
