Realme XT review: 64 Megapixel goodness

The Realme XT is not just a good mid-ranger, it is a good phone with an exceptional camera on the back.

Realme has been on fire lately. The brand started out by bringing some great value for money devices and a year later, they’re established in the mid-range segment. Now they produce their own audio equipment and are beginning to enter the upper mid-range strata too.

The company made headlines by launching the Realme X with a pop-up camera months ago. They then brought the quad-camera setup to the masses with the Realme 5. Adding in a 48MP sensor and a better chipset to the already good device we had the Realme 5 Pro. And now, we have the Realme XT, the first phone to commercially launch with Samsung’s new 64MP camera sensor. With word that the brand is slowly heading into the flagship segment and will even have their own UI soon, we’re really loving the direction and pace the Realme is continuing to pick.

Back to the current telephone, the Realme XT takes a shot at the attempted, tried and fruitful layout of the Realme 5 Pro. The telephone is fundamentally the 5 Pro, with a 64MP principle camera sensor and some slight spec changes to a great extent. We jump into the gadget and every one of its abilities to decide whether the brand did to be sure figure out how to deliver one more staggering gadget in a similar month as the Realme 5 and 5 Pro.

Design, Build

In the event that we needed to portray the vibes of the Realme XT in a word, we’d doubtlessly call it dazzling. The ‘Pearl White’ gadget accompanies a white glass back with slight blue and purple angles on the sides. A silver-edge camera knock juts from the upper left of the back and a metal edge with a chrome completion goes around the gadget and looks tasteful.

The front of the telephone is about all glass, with the exception of the dew-drop indent and the marginally thick base bezel. There is the speaker grille, USB-C port, mouthpiece, and earphone jack on the base and the top just has an auxiliary mic. The left edge has the SIM plate and the volume rockers while the privilege of the telephone has the power to catch with a gold complement.




The Realme 5 doesn’t simply look great, it feels premium in the hand and the strong form makes a difference. The gadget feels pretty much the correct size to not be exceptionally enormous or little by 2019 cell phone norms. The reduced size is additionally decent in addition to the general size. The telephone is additionally Realme’s first offering with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front just like the back. This means a gadget you can utilize certainly when out in the urban wild.


The screen on the Realme XT feels precisely like the 5 Pro, which is certainly not an awful thing at all since the 5 Pro had an entirely decent show. The 6.4-inch 1080×2340 goals feel fresh at 403ppi and hues look profound gratitude to the AMOLED board. The maximum brilliance is adequate to make text clear outside and survey points are incredible as well.

At the base of the showcase is the unique finger impression scanner that is insane quick and exact. Maybe one of the quickest unique mark scanners in the portion, the scanner didn’t neglect to perceive our fingers even once during over seven days of our testing.


Like the Realme X, 5 and 5 Pro, the Realme XT additionally keeps running on ColorOS 6 and keeping in mind that a few people may fancy it, we don’t. Indeed, we’re one-sided towards spotless, negligible and near-stock Android encounters, yet notwithstanding keeping that judgment aside, there are other custom Android skins that are lighter and offer greater customizability—The two noteworthy columns whereupon a custom Android skin remains on.

ColorOS isn’t terrible using any and all means. It is straightforward, loaded with highlights, bright or more all, simple to adjust to. There are little concealed highlights that make life simpler, similar to the gleaming overlay pointers on either side of the indent that let you realize what number of gadgets are associated with your hotspot and how much information they devour, all while you’re caught up with chipping away at different applications. Furthermore a large portion of the extravagant stuff the telephone can do is discretionary and the skin doesn’t overpower you with a lot at once.

In any case, a great deal stays to be chipped away at. The subject store, for instance, enables you to change “topics” yet doesn’t change significant components like the warning bar and fast flips. There is still no dull mode notwithstanding the telephone having an AMOLED screen. Swell is insignificant on the gadget, and what’s there can be uninstalled, aside from the brand’s very own irritating application advertise that includes a few organizers like symbols to your rundown of applications that you just can’t dispose of.


This is it, the USP of the gadget. The Realme XT accompanies the main 64MP camera in a cell phone. Not simply that, it additionally has a quad-camera arrangement on the back involving the fundamental focal point alongside an 8MP ultra-wide focal point, a 2MP profundity sensor, and a 2MP ultra-full scale focal point. The forward-looking camera is a 16MP shooter.

The camera interface has consistently been extraordinary in Realme telephones and it’s no special case here. Different photography modes are perfectly concealed in a cheeseburger menu on the left side.

The ultra-wide focal point isn’t the greatest out there yet carries out its responsibility well in catching a huge view in one shot. There is no product rectification for the twist impact you see on the edges of pictures. Yet, as far as subtleties and shading, the photographs were really great.

The ultra-large-scale mode while valuable is difficult to use at its maximum capacity since it requires your full-scale subjects to be at simply the correct separation. Not simply that, even the scarcest development will destroy a shot, and that incorporates you relaxing.

The front camera is great, yet not excellent. While open-air photographs turn out great, presentation now and then explodes in reasonably lit conditions. Photographs taken in counterfeit light and inside look great on hues, however, miss out on some detail regardless of it being a 16MP. Because of the UI, it offers a huge amount of impacts and magnificence channels to change facial components. It can make your nose littler, your eyes greater, and then some.


The Realme XT draws its capacity from a Snapdragon 712 and that makes it quick enough to not perceive any sorts of falters or slacks all through the interface. The variation we have additionally had 8GB RAM and that fundamentally means clients having the option to run a lot of applications together simultaneously while having the option to switch between them easily and with no restarts.

The smartphone additionally didn’t warmth up a great deal while gaming and the not too bad battery life gets a decent measure of gaming in a solitary session before you need to go after the charger. The conservative structure helps in simple gaming.


The Realme XT packs 4000mAh of juice and accompanies quick charging as the organization’s VOOC 3.0 innovation. That fundamentally implies the Realme XT can without much of a stretch most recent daily of moderate utilization and on light use can undoubtedly last as long as a day and a half. VOOC 3.0 offers great paces and the telephone generally charges around 50 percent from 0 of every 30 minutes.
