Realme GT 2 Pro Makes Other Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC Powered Smartphones Look Expensive

|

Realme has officially launched its first premium flagship smartphone -- the Realme GT 2 Pro. Given the prices of other smartphones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, I expected the Realme GT 2 Pro to cost around Rs. 60,000. However, with a starting price of Rs. 44,999 (including bank offers), the Realme GT 2 Pro just became the most affordable Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC powered smartphone in India.

While the Realme GT 2 Pro isn't a perfect premium flagship smartphone, it has covered the basics pretty well and has even surpassed the competition in some aspects. Besides the processor, the smartphone also comes with a 2K AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO technology, which is something that is only seen on phones that costs a lot more than the Realme GT 2 Pro.

The company's unique take on the back panel makes the Realme GT 2 Pro stand out from the crowd. However, I would have really liked to see a variant of the Realme GT 2 Pro without the designer's signature on the back of a smartphone that almost costs half a lakh rupee.

Shortcomings Of Realme GT 2 Pro

As mentioned before, the Realme GT 2 Pro, despite being called a premium flagship smartphone misses out on a few features that we usually associated with premium smartphones. The Realme GT 2 Pro does not have an official IP rating, and the phone also misses out on wireless charging.

Even in the camera, the phone has a capable triple camera setup with a dedicated microscopic sensor. However, the device does not have a telephoto lens, which is again something that we usually see on premium flagship smartphones. While the phone offers the latest Android 12 OS, the custom Realme UI 3 has a load of bloatware, which again something that we do not associate with a premium flagship smartphone.
