A new affordable model in the Realme GT series.
The Realme GT Master comes in grey vegan leather with the design inspired by a suitcase!
The new phone has a powerful but efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset
Grey Vegan Leather
The GT Master has the same dimensions and basic design, but it switches the bright yellow vegan leather for grey. I like it and it is good to see these different materials used on lower priced phones
The Master GT has a competant camera
Most people will be happy with the camera but it is one of the weaker areas of this phone. The new GT Master Explorer is the phone to get if you are a keen photographer
A big upgrade from the SD765G
The Snapdragon 778G offers a decent 27% uplift in performance vs the SD765G of last year in the Antutu benchmarks.
>>> Performance Comparison
No thermal throttling but not the best gaming chipset
While it is a massive upgrade vs last years 7-series chipset, it falls way behind the just-announced Explorer Master with the SD870. However, there is almost no thermal throttling (unlike the SD888)
120Hz AMOLED Display
The Realme GT Master has the same display as the flagship Realme GT. It is extremely responsive and a nice size in the hand
The Realme GT Master will easily get you through the day and lasts much longer than the flagship Realme GT. It then has 65W charging, just like the flagship model.
Lenovo Ideapad Slim 3i
