When it comes to smartphones, it's usually difficult to find the perfect balance between performance, design and price. But Realme, the Chinese tech giant, has risen above this dilemma with its latest model, the GT5 Pro. This phone not only brings technological innovation, but is also a feast for the eyes - and at a price that will leave you speechless!

We explore the Realme GT5 Pro, the latest star in Realme's smartphone galaxy, which combines exceptional performance, innovative design and advanced features, all at a surprisingly affordable price.

A design that is different enough!

At first glance, the GT5 Pro captivates with its minimalist yet elegant design. Available in colors such as Red Rock, Bright Moon and Starry Night, it offers something for every taste. But the real star of the show is its vegan leather back, which is not only eco-friendly but also adds a touch of luxury. With its refined texture and understated elegance, the GT5 Pro is a true fashion statement in the world of technology. The phone looks nice in the picture and doesn't look cheap. Materail, however, promises to be durable.

Under artificial skin

When we open the lid of this elegant device, we come across an impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. This processor ensures that the GT5 Pro runs the most demanding applications and games without any problems. With a variety of memory options, from 12/256 GB to a mighty 16/1 TB, the GT5 Pro allows users to choose the right configuration for their needs. All of you who follow the world of smartphones will be extremely surprised that this phone has a "flagship" configuration, in the way that the Poco phone once offered. Let's move on to the screen, the GT5 Pro's 6.78-inch AMOLED display with high resolution and stunning brightness of up to 4500 nits offers vivid colors and crystal clear images. With a 144Hz refresh rate, every movement on the screen is smooth and stutter-free, making the GT5 Pro ideal for watching videos and playing games. We don't see any serious compromises here either.

Interesting fast charging and large battery

It is powered by a huge battery with a capacity of 5400 mAh, which ensures long-term use without the need for frequent charging. But when charging is necessary, the GT5 Pro enables fast wired charging with a power of 100W, which means that the battery is charged in record time. For additional convenience, there is also the possibility of wireless charging with 50W. All these numbers are beyond great.

The most important thing for buyers is the camera!

The Realme GT5 Pro also boasts an advanced camera system that includes a 50MP main sensor, a 50MP periscope zoom and an 8MP ultra-wide camera. For selfies and video calls, there is a 32MP front camera. The ability to record 4k60fps and 8k24fps videos further raises the standard that the GT5 Pro sets in the world of mobile photography.

Practically insane price for the specs on paper

Despite all these impressive features, the GT5 Pro is surprisingly affordable. Compared to the US and European markets, prices in China are significantly lower, starting as low as around $465. When we consider everything this phone has to offer, it's clear that the Realme GT5 Pro offers exceptional value for money. In Europe, it should be sold at a price of 430 euros (source: GSMArena). The phone is also waterproof to the IP64 standard, which is a rarity in this price range.

The Realme GT5 Pro is not just another smartphone on the market. It is a watershed moment in the world of mobile devices, combining exceptional performance, advanced features and elegant design in one device. The GT5 Pro undoubtedly sets new standards and represents the future of mobile technology.

Known as an innovative smartphone manufacturer, Realme is actually a subsidiary of Oppo, a prominent Chinese electronics manufacturer. In 2018, Oppo founded Realme as a separate brand aimed at younger, price-sensitive market segments​​. Just like Xiaomi founded, Poco. Interestingly, although Oppo and Vivo often compete against each other in the same category, they are actually owned by the same parent company, BBK Electronics. BBK Electronics Corporation, headquartered in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China, is the parent company of brands such as Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus and Realme​​​​​​ BBK Electronics was founded in 2004 and was initially known for its DVD players before the company ventured into the more lucrative business of mobile phone manufacturing​​.
