The Realme GT series is FINALLY back after 2 years of absence! If you remember, I really liked the Realme GT Neo 2, later was also re-launched as GT Neo 3T, it was a good performance-centric phone back then. And the legacy now continues with the Realme GT 6T. The phone costs INR 30,999 (NPR 49,599) in India but after bank and exchange offers, the base 8/128GB variant of this phone costs Rs. 24,999 in India which converts to NPR 39,999. And for that price, it has got a lot of good features to talk about – like a LTPO display with GG V2 protection, a powerful SD 7+ Gen 3 processor, a big 5500mAh battery, and a 50MP SONY LYT 600 camera. So, how’s the phone? Let’s find that out in our Realme GT 6T review.

But as always, let’s take a peek at the specifications first.

Realme GT 6T Review


Let’s get started with the design. And it’s nothing extraordinary as you can see. You get a pretty big camera module with a dual-tone finish. Actually, it looks similar to the Poco F6.
Plus, the back as well as the frames is Plastic here and Catches a lot of fingerprints and smudges, which is something I didn’t like. Maybe they could have given an eco-leather back finish like with the Realme 12 series.

But the overall heft is surprisingly good. And If I have to compare it against the Poco F6, this one feels more premium in the hands. Plus, the back and the display are also curved, so it provides a nice grip too. Upfront too, Realme GT 6T has GG Victus 2 protection. I think it’s the most affordable phone to have such robust display protection.


The Realme GT 6T also has the best display quality you can find on a midrange phone! This display is very identical to the OnePlus 12R. 6.78-inch LTPO panel, 12-bit color depth, it can go up to 1600 nits in HBM and a whopping 6000 nits peak HDR brightness.
The color calibration out of the box is fantastic. So, you will enjoy watching the video content here.

Realme GT 6T Video Playback

As of now, Netflix doesn’t support HDR playback, but it should get updated soon. There is HDR support on YouTube though. You also get High-frequency 2160Hz PWM dimming, so you shouldn’t be seeing flicker at low brightness settings. Plus, it also has TÜV Certification to minimize harmful blue light emissions and flicker. The touch response is also quite good here. So Whether I am scrolling through the web pages or playing games on it, it feels very responsive.

Refresh Rate

Inside the display settings, you can choose 3 refresh rate modes, and while using it in auto-select, the refresh rate is quite optimized. Navigating through the UI is at 120Hz, watching videos switches to 60Hz, and apps like Chrome, Instagram, etc run at 90Hz.
However, I didn’t see any apps going as low as 1Hz as Realme claimed in their review guidelines. Anyway, if you don’t want apps to run at just 90Hz, you can change it to a High refresh rate and even modify it to run certain apps as needed.

Another interesting feature I found here is the AI Eye Comfort which detects eye fatigue with AI and adjusts the color temperature. Likewise, Realme has done a nice job by including flagship-grade X-axis haptics. It’s as good as the OnePlus 12 and 12R. You can even change the intensity of the haptics as you like and get feedback while navigating in the multitasking bar. Super Neat quality of life improvement!


Another thing to love here is the speakers. It’s definitely much better than a typical midrange phone. It’s loud, has some base, and a nice treble too.


Realme has also upped its software game with the GT6T. It’s currently on Android 14 and the company has promised 3 years of OS and 4 years of quarterly security patches. Plus, there is less bloatware this time, less than the Poco F6. And most of them can be either disabled or uninstalled.

Realme GT 6T UI


As for the performance, you get the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3 chipset, which has a similar CPU architecture to the SD 8s Gen 3 that we get on the Poco F6. But, the GPU on the 7Plus Gen 3 here is slightly less powerful than the 8s Gen 3 and you get a slightly slower X63 modem here.

Realme GT 6T Benchmarks

Putting technicality aside, the 7+ Gen 3 is a very very good chipset. Everything here is as fast as some of the flagship phones. Superb multitasking. Super Fast App opening. No signs of jitters. Everything! The difference is now getting so close that you don’t have to spend $1000 or over a lakh to get a flagship-grade performance and this phone and also the Poco F6 are a prime example.

By the way, the memory type here is LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage. Realme also claims that they have included a pretty big 10000mm² Stainless Steel Vapor Chamber, but on my regular usage, it was getting slightly warmer, especially when I was on data.


Now for gaming, in PUBG mobile, I am getting a stable 60 fps, while the temperature didn’t exceed 40 degrees. Decent! Even, in Genshin Impact, in medium graphics and 60fps setting, the average fps I am getting was 59fps, and there is no dip in the fps as you can see from the chart. But since I am playing it on the GT mode that prioritizes maximum performance, the temperature is slightly higher.

Realme GT 6T Gaming

However, what I found out is, that unlike Poco F6, you cannot enjoy any of the games in high 90 fps or 120fps – not even the low-end games like Mobile Legends. That’s actually something common on all realme phones.

But overall, this is a fast phone you can enjoy games with good stability in most games. Although, I have to say you will get slightly better stability, and smoothness with IQOO Neo 9 Pro or the Poco F6.


Another aspect that I really like about the GT 6T is its battery endurance. Just like the latest OnePlus phones, it comes with two 2750mAh cells. A total of 5500mAh and I am easily getting like 6 to 7 hours of SOT on heavy usage. So, it will easily last you for a full day without a beat. And with the 120W wired charger, it can take the phone from 0 to 60% in just 15 minutes and 100% in half an hour.


Ok so far everything I have talked about the Realme GT 6T is near A+. Be it the robust build, display, speakers, or the performance. But how’s the camera? I think I would give it a 7 out of 10. It’s got a 50 MP primary camera with OIS and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor.

Realme GT 6T Camera

Camera performance is I would say “satisfactory’’. Reviewing Poco F6 side by side, I can instantly say that realme is better, but I will talk about it in detail in my full comparison.


For now, if you look at the samples I took from Realme GT 6T, it has a nice sharpness in photos, and slightly oversaturated output, but looks good in certain conditions. Dynamic range is well maintained too.

Sometimes I found whites to be overbearing, the camera just overprocesses the images and during those times, the images come off subpar, but other than that, I have been pretty satisfied with the output.


I especially like the portraits, it has a nice skin tone and color reproduction, and you also get a 2x option which makes the subject focus better, but at the cost of details! Overall, you can get nice portraits from the phone.


The 8MP Ultra wide images have average details, but the color reproduction is close to the primary images, so it is not that bad.


Selfies have good colors and all, smoothened, but nice no complaints!


Nighttime performance in photos is outstanding. I never felt the need to turn on night mode, normal images have great exposure, details, etc. However, as expected, Ultra-wide nighttime images struggle to maintain proper details and lights!




Now, videos from the back camera were something I expected the GT6T to do well. But both the 4K 30 and 60fps don’t have the best of stabilisation. You get slight jitters and wobbles if I am taking the videos while vlogging or panning, and the video quality and the sharpness aren’t exactly great. And the same with the Ultra-wide camera. It can record only in 1080P 30fps and does not have good details and most importantly dynamic range.

Selfie Video

So, overall, the Realme GT 6T. It’s an excellent effort from the company to dominate the midrange segment. And definitely a step up from the Realme 12 Pro and 12 Pro+, which I think was a pretty average offering.

Realme GT 6T Review: Conclusion

I think this phone truly does make the midrange segment interesting again! I think, with this phone, you are getting as good of an experience as the OnePlus 12R at a much much cheaper price! I like to call it as a OnePlus 12R Lite.

Plus, what I like about Realme phones is they do push a few updates to improve the cameras. The same thing happened with the Realme 12 Pro where after 2 or 3 updates, the cameras performed better. So, hopefully, Realme optimizes the cameras by a bit. But still, this is a great phone for the price.

realme-gt-6t-reviewThe GT 6T from Realme stands out as a superb comeback for the GT series in the global market. It's got a great display and audio. And the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 is all about performance and power while its cameras are also on the decent sides. But one particular downside here is Realme capping the high fps games at 60fps.
