Design & build

When it comes to smartphone materials, paper isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, but that’s precisely what Realme’s design team utilised as a starting point for the finish on the GT 2 Pro.

While the phone can be had in a relatively pedestrian Steel Black in Europe (as well as Titanium Blue in india) with a conventional glass back, Realme has also given the GT 2 Pro the Master Edition treatment by once again partnering with Japanese designer Naoto Fukusawa to create a unique set of finishes that pull away from traditional smartphone tropes.

The version of the Realme GT 2 Pro that you’ll likely see in any promotional imagery is the Master Edition variant; sporting either the Paper White or Paper Green colourway. The first phone to feature a back made of biopolymer, the lightly grooved texture across this plastic is meant to evoke the feel of paper.

In practice, I’ll concede that perhaps the sensation could be attributed to coarse, heavily recycled paper, but not your average sheet of notepad A4.

As for the aesthetics at play, the texture adds a nice amount of grip that differs from conventional glass of plastic-backed phones, while diffusing light in a way that gives the phone a clean and fingerprint-free appearance from any angle.

Rendered in either a warm white or a mint green, however, this pale finish does look as though it might hold onto grime within those minute grooves after extended use, which itself might be difficult to clean.

While Realme’s Master Edition phones often feature Fukusawa’s signature somewhere on their bodies, the way in which the Realme GT 2 Pro’s back gives his John Hancock a dedicated plinth next to the camera module seems a little gaudy; encroaching on the phone’s otherwise clean hardware layout.

It’s not even something you can hide with the included dark grey case, as while that covers the all-important finish with a near-featureless outer shell, it inescapably features its own plinth, again adorned with the designer’s signature.


The display of the Realme GT 2 Pro is, as expected, high-end. The 2K screen has a great resolution and looks fantastic. It has a peak brightness of 1,400 nits and LTPO 2.0 technology, which allows it to switch between refresh rates.

With a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, you’ll receive silky smooth performance, even if you’re playing a fast-paced game like BGMI Mobile.

Whether you’re streaming or browsing under an overcast or brilliant, bright sky, the Realme GT 2 Pro display looks great. The display is sharp and colourful, as one would expect from an OLED panel.


On the surface, the cameras on the Realme GT 2 Pro appear to be quite typical. On the rear of the phone, there are three lenses: a main 50MP camera, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 3MP 40x tiny lens. A 32MP selfie camera is located on the front of the phone.

What sets the GT 2 Pro apart is how it employs those lenses. The ultra-wide-angle lens snaps at 150 degrees, and the resulting photographs are stunning, with plenty of detail. Even if you don’t have a telephoto lens, you’ll end up taking a lot of wide-angle images.

Likewise, the 40x microscopic camera is the lens you didn’t know you needed. With a little practise, you’ll find yourself photographing a variety of materials and objects just to see how they seem when zoomed in.

You’ll probably use the primary 50MP camera most of the time, but it’s fun to show off every now and again.

There’s a starry mode, street photography, 50MP mode, and a decent night mode to choose from.

Colors are realistic, lively, and photos are detailed in the majority of cases. The digital zoom is the only evident flaw here. The graininess of the images produced by this setting is noticeable.


The GT2 Pro is a gadget that not only looks good on paper, but also performs well in the real world. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which is top-of-the-line and works in tandem with the UI.

Using Geekbench 5, the Realme GT 2 Pro achieved a single-core score of 1,244. Comprehensively speaking, that score beats the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra’s score of 924. 

Multi-core performance comes in at 3,724 – again beating the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 3,085. Compute scores are slightly lower, at 6,010, compared to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus’s 6,990. 

However, all you really need to know here is that the Realme GT 2 Pro is fast. Loading up BGMI Mobile was speedy and general use of the phone makes multitasking a breeze.

This is a fast phone, however you plan on using it. 

The Realme GT 2 Pro comes with Android 12 installed as standard along with the Realme UI overlay. A few apps are already installed like Tik Tok, LinkedIn and other social media apps, but as a whole, it’s fairly clean and bloat-free. 

For a relatively pure Android experience, the Realme GT 2 Pro is it.

Battery life

The Realme GT 2 Pro includes a 5,000mAh battery and a slew of other features that make it a long-lasting phone. That mileage may vary based on what you do during the day, but this is a phone that will last, even if you have a full day ahead of you.

When you do need to recharge, Realme’s 65W SuperDart Charge allows you to get from zero to 100 percent in just 30 minutes. However, the lack of wireless charging functionality is a disappointment.

Final Words

In the smartphone industry, the Realme GT 2 Pro is set to make a big splash. It has flagship-level performance, super-fast charging, and a great screen, but the pricing and size are more in the middle.

If you’re looking for a killer camera, go elsewhere; this is better for the casual and novice photographer. That’s not to say it can’t generate nice images; it can, as long as the lighting and focus are both perfect.
