Realme GT5 Pro experience: Starting price is 3,298 yuan, the main camera is high-quality telephoto, a camera phone with flagship performance

On December 7, Realme officially released the new generation flagship product Realme GT5 Pro. The first sale price starts from 3,298 yuan, and there are 4 storage versions.

What it looks like when all the flagship elements are gathered together

The back cover of the Realme GT5 Pro lacks the fancy features on the Realme 11 Pro, and it feels like a return to the original elegant style of the Realme GT series. The back cover only retains the super large rear multi-camera module, and there is a glossy Realme Logo under the module.

There are three colors: Red Rock, Haoyue and Starry Night. The back cover of Starry Night uses AG frosted glass with star flash technology. The effect of the dark night starry sky is presented by integrating the flash points on the frosted back cover.

Haobai, like the Chiyan we have, uses a technological nano-skin back cover with a texture similar to lychee skin. The friction feeling is more obvious when holding the phone in your hand, and the technological nano-skin is also relatively resistant to dirt, so you can simply wipe it on daily.

The mobile phone protective case that comes with the phone has also changed from a smooth gray model to a matte protective case with a leather-like texture, and the texture has been improved a lot.

The overall color of the red rock color fuselage will be darker, and the metal frame is close to the dark copper color effect. The top of the frame has a brushed metal texture, a transparent cover is added to the texture, and openings are made for the infrared sensor and earpiece.

The buttons are all concentrated on the right side, and there is a card slot, speaker and USB-C interface updated to USB 3.2 at the bottom.

Realme GT5 Pro is equipped with a 6.78-inch 1.5K BOE new generation S1 customized flexible screen on the front. The manual brightness of the screen can reach up to 1000nits, the global maximum brightness can reach 1600nits, and the local peak brightness can reach up to 4500nits.

The screen supports Pro-XDR high dynamic display and Ayoteon's Dolby Vision video playback, and supports DC dimming under high brightness.

There is also 2160Hz high-frequency PWM dimming in low-light conditions, and the screen itself will also ensure color performance in low-brightness conditions.

In terms of refresh rate, Realme GT5 Pro uses 8T LPTO smart refresh rate technology from 0.5Hz to 144Hz. Realme said that when the mobile phone plays short videos, it is 60Hz, and 144Hz is turned on when starting the game, and the 0.5Hz mode is used on the mobile phone's AOD display to further reduce the power consumption of the AOD display.

A 32-megapixel front-facing camera is placed on the top of the screen. In addition to being used for selfies and facial recognition, this camera is also responsible for palmprint recognition and gesture operations.

The performance is basic, but the control is surprising?

Since palmprint recognition and gesture operation are mentioned, let’s talk about this part first.

Realme GT5 Pro adds a new palmprint recognition function based on fingerprints and faces. The operation of palmprint entry is similar to facial recognition. Just put your palm in front of the front camera, align it with the viewfinder and fix it for a few seconds to complete the recording. .

After the recording is completed, put your palm in the air about 2-3cm in front of the camera with the screen off. After the phone recognizes it, the screen will turn on, and a palm-shaped unlocking logo will appear under the camera. Wait until it finishes rotating. Unlocking is complete.

When the phone can recognize the palm normally, the efficiency of palmprint unlocking is similar to that of facial recognition. If it's fast, after the phone recognition is completed, it will skip the lock screen page and go directly to the main page.

After entering the palm print, the phone will automatically jump to the gesture settings page. Realme provides 12 gestures, including left and right gestures for swiping the desktop, single-finger gestures for opening apps from a distance, plus Bixin and OK gestures dedicated to commonly used apps such as Douyin.

When the phone is fixed on the wireless charging pad or charging base, you can simply unlock it with gestures to read a message or browse TikTok without picking up the phone.

Speaking of charging, the Realme GT5 Pro is equipped with both wired and wireless charging.

The fuselage comes with a 5400mAh battery and SuperVOOC power management chip. It supports wired 100W light-speed second charging and 50W wireless flash charging. It can be fully charged in about ten minutes before going out.

I mainly focus on taking photos and gaming every day. If I occasionally browse Weibo, Douyin, and Xiaohongshu, the Realme GT5 Pro still has 30-40% remaining power at the end of the day. There is no need to worry about battery life or charging efficiency.

Nowadays, most high-performance flagships focus on wired charging, and fewer and fewer models come with built-in wireless charging. Realme has given support for 50W wireless charging this time, which is quite sincere. Even if the user does not plan to purchase a dedicated wireless charger, it can be placed on the charging stand before going to bed at night, eliminating the trouble of plugging in the cord more than once.

The phone itself also supports UFCS integrated fast charging, and the daily requirements for wired chargers are not high.

The built-in 100W charger can not only quickly charge mobile phones, but also laptops. It would be even more perfect if the charger connector could be replaced with a USB-C interface.

Finally, let’s take a look at the performance. The Realme GT5 Pro is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform. It has a storage combination of up to 16GB of memory and 1TB of flash memory. It supports the latest GT Mode 5.0 and can run over 2.15 million points using AnTuTu. It is Standard Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 flagship level.

Turning on the GT mode and running Genshin Impact with the highest image quality settings, we used the Realme GT5 Pro to run back and forth in the Fontainebleau. We found that as long as the phone completely loaded the venue, there would be basically no lag, and the viewing angle switching and operation were smooth.

Occasionally, there will be some lags when playing the kill animation and when the scene is completely loaded, but it does not occur frequently, and the overall operation and animation playback at rest are still smooth.

The USB-C interface at the bottom has been upgraded to USB 3.2. Use Android's official file transfer tool to copy photo materials. The reading and copying speeds are good. The measured material of about 1GB only takes about 30 seconds to complete.

Flagship main camera, main camera telephoto

In terms of cameras, Realme GT5 Pro uses a standard three-camera combination of "ultra wide + wide-angle main camera + 3x telephoto". The wide-angle main camera and 3x telephoto camera are both full of materials.

The main camera is equipped with a 50-megapixel 1/1.4-inch Sony LYT-808 sensor, the lens aperture is F1.69, and it is equipped with a super light and shadow algorithm engine. The video part supports 8K and 4K HDR Dolby Vision video shooting.

Thanks to the Super Light and Shadow Engine algorithm, the main camera retains highlights and dark details without greatly distorting the scene light ratio. The HDR effect is not obvious and the picture is clean and transparent. The dark parts will not turn completely black, the lines on the wall will still be visible, the entire photo will not turn gray, and the light and shadow that need to be retained in the picture are still there.

Therefore, if you want to shoot light and shadow, you don’t need to deal with it too carefully or in post-production. You can get the effect by simply pressing the exposure during shooting.

The line details presented by the main camera of the Realme GT5 Pro are sharp and the colors are slightly richer.

The 65mm-equivalent 3x telephoto uses a 50-megapixel, 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 main photography sensor. The lens aperture is F2.6, and a large sawtooth-shaped structure is added to the edge of the lens. The effect is similar to the light shading of a camera lens. hood to reduce the impact of glare when shooting.

The lens supports macro as close as 25cm, which makes shooting much more flexible.

The simplest thing is to use the 25cm macro and the large aperture of F2.6. Realme GT5 Pro can easily shoot this kind of shallow depth of field and large blur effect. If you enlarge the photo, the focus position also has good clarity.

As long as you adapt to the distance difference between 2x and 3x, you can achieve good results with this telephoto.

In the portrait mode effect of telephoto shooting, the recognition of spatial distance is not bad. Even if there are many gaps in the picture, the mobile phone can basically calculate the distance relationship, and it is not so easy to distort the look and feel. However, the aperture still cannot be opened too wide, otherwise there will be an obvious "cut-out feeling".

The effect of shooting still life in portrait mode is also very good. The colors are bright and the details are sharp. Coupled with the telephoto angle of view and blur simulation, it is easy to produce pictures.

The high-pixel sensor is conducive to cropping. The Realme GT5 Pro also provides a 6x viewing angle using 3x telephoto digital zoom. After zooming, it basically does not affect the display of picture details.

The ultra-wide-angle camera of the Realme GT5 Pro is equipped with an 8-megapixel, 1/4-inch Sony IMX355 sensor with an aperture of F2.2. The imaging style is consistent with the other telephoto and main cameras. When dealing with overall brighter scenes, the picture will be slightly lighter, but it will not be grayish.

However, if there is an obvious strong light source when shooting, you still need to avoid it, otherwise the glare will still be a bit obvious.

In terms of night scenes, Realme GT5 Pro is equipped with a super light and shadow engine algorithm and ProLight super night scene mode, which can start processing from the RAW domain to brighten the overall picture while retaining the scene light ratio and the natural transition between light and dark in the picture.

The shooting style of mobile phones in low-light environments will be similar to that in daytime. The photos have sufficient contrast. Whether it is telephoto or main camera, the details of the windows can still be seen clearly after zooming in on the dark buildings, without obvious noise or smearing.

The details of the night scene taken at telephoto are sharp, and the texture of the trees under the viaduct can still be seen. There is no need to lower the shutter speed very low when shooting with a mobile phone. The shutter speed of 1/52s combined with the large aperture of the outsole can still produce a clean and bright picture.

A high-performance camera that takes better photos, and a camera phone with good performance

When the performance part of performance flagships has evolved to close to the ceiling, manufacturers have invariably shifted their goals to the photography of performance flagships.

Replace it with a better sensor and algorithm technology of the flagship model, and then add a telephoto lens to the Pro model. This will become the image enhancement process for the current performance flagship.

Indeed, the Realme GT5 Pro is also following this direction.

The mobile phone has a flash memory chip of up to 1TB and a high-quality high-brush 1.5K screen. It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 flagship mobile platform and has a performance score of more than 2.15 million points. The fuselage is equipped with 100W wired fast charging and a large 5400mAh battery. Realme even adds 50W wireless fast charging, both in terms of performance and battery life.

Although it may not be "flagship" enough without 24GB RAM, if you have very extreme requirements for long-term retention of applications, or do not have the need to play four or five games at the same time, then 16GB RAM is still enough in the current environment. Very adequate.

As for the camera, I think the Realme GT5 Pro not only achieves the goal of "improving flagship photography performance", but also makes photography its own advantage.

With a flagship-level sensor and flagship image algorithms and technologies, photos can achieve a balance between information, tone, and style. Even the telephoto, which is often ignored by high-performance flagship phones, has been upgraded to the main camera level this time.

To say that the Realme GT5 Pro is a “flagship with enhanced camera performance” may not be appropriate. After using it to take pictures, I think the Realme GT5 Pro should be a "camera phone with performance configurations upgraded to flagship levels."
