Our main focus while reviewing Realme XT will be its Display, Performance and Cameras. These three are its strongest features.
Realme XT Display
You always feel the need to talk about the display panel of any smartphone that very moment you realize it is an AMOLED panel. And AMOLED panels need no introduction. Pick up a phone with it, like Realme XT, and straight away you will notice the clarity and sharpness of it. Now on Realme XT there is not merely AMOLED but Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. It has a crisp 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution going on with that 6.4 inches panel. Realme XT’s display is one of the best in the market today. 403 ppi density shows for it. The upgraded high-precision dispensing technology and COF packaging technology allows this phone to reach a 91.9% screen-to-body ratio.
Besides being a sharp and vivid 16.3cm (6.4”) FHD+ Super AMOLED display there is also something going on with it. This is the fingerprint scanner which we neither see on the back panel not embedded on the power button. This is because it is underneath the display. Speed and accuracy in unlocking Realme XT is what it is worth. This scanner is the latest optical module from Goodix 3.0. Careful research shows its has a multi-monitor identification system and it adds a filter that can identify colors for a more secure unlocking. This simply translates to better security and assured privacy. Visit Realme XT official website to learn even more about this display.
Realme XT 64MP Quad Camera Expert
Very quickly let me mention the four (quad) cameras.
- 64 MP f/1.8 flagship-level wide sensor
- 8 MP f/2.3 ultra wide
- 2 MP f/2.4 dedicated macro camera
- 2 MP f/2.4 depth sensor
“The World is Full of Filters,I Want to Shoot What’s Real.” These words were spoken by Aaron Huey. You check him out. What’s important to note is that for a photographer of his caliber agreeing to be associated with Realme XT in this department tells quite a lot. That 64MP quad camera is able to take 9216×6912 ultra detailed photos. Such photos are four times larger than photos which are taken with an everyday 16MP camera. This in turn produces unmatched pictures that are detailed even when zoomed-in.
This 64MP shooter also features a four-in-one intelligent pixel grouping and a 6P lens with light-gathering capability making Realme XT produce what the company calls, Flagship-level photography. Indeed this is true. And seeing that there is support for 4K video recording 2160p@30fps sends this right home. There isn’t any OIS here thought but gyro-EIS still got your back, somewhat. Think also about the possibilities of that 16 MP selfie camera lens Realme XT has. When it comes to camera performance of this phone, think studio quality.
Platform and performance
There is a planned upgrade to Android 10.0 for Realme XT which you will unbox and find running Android 9.0 (Pie) with ColorOS 6. One stunning experience which with the software of this phone is Dark Mode which we should have discussed while talking about the display. Anyway, because it is an AMOLED panel the same is supported. And it saves a great deal of battery life. Under the hood is a Qualcomm SDM712 Snapdragon 712 (10 nm) chipset that is built to perform. It has aout 10% performance improvement with a 2.3 GHz clock-speed. Moreover, the 3.0 AI engine increasingly enhances efficiency in image processing and optimization.
VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 is fast becoming popular and a fan’s favorite. It only takes 80 minutes to fully charge Realme XT’s non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. This phone, to quote Realme now, has “screen power-saving feature and AI cooling further reduce power consumption and prolong battery life.” These are words you can count since at Phone Place Kenya we have run our tests and we have found this a truly long lasting battery. With it you can achieve a whole day of mixed usage with ease. That includes social media, watching videos, browsing and even some video gaming from time to time. If you are the kind of person that worries about battery life then Realme XT might just offer you some comfort. Buy it with us today.
