To compete with Xiaomi, the competing brand Realme continues to bring to the smartphone market with excellent value for money. The new GT Neo 2 is no exception with its powerful Qualcomm processor, ultra-efficient fast charging or even its screen displaying a very high refresh rate, all for less for an even cheaper price than at launch thanks to a reduction of 90 euros at several e-merchants.

A smartphone with minimal concessions

To lower the price of the final bill, the Realme GT Neo 2 obviously had to make some sacrifices, but not as many as you might think. The first shortcoming is undoubtedly the lack of an IP certification to resist dust and water, so you will have to be very careful depending on where you will be using the smartphone. The second then intervenes in the photo part, which does not offer good versatility, in particular with a perfectible portrait mode and a completely useless macro mode via the dedicated 4 megapixel sensor. That being said, the GT Neo 2 still captures beautiful shots thanks to its 64-megapixel main sensor and 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, even at night.

A clearly premium technical sheet

We could also blame it for an effect cheap from the frame to the junction between the front and back sides of the Realme GT Neo 2, but this is just a tiny detail that does not interfere with the user experience. To stay in the design, it is generally classic compared to the competition and we greatly appreciate the matt glass back which does not catch fingerprints. The 6.62-inch screen, which takes up almost all the space of the front panel, is of very good quality since AMOLED and Full HD + with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz.

The Realme GT Neo 2 then continues with elements as high-end as ultra-fast charging up to 65 W thanks to the charger included in the box. Allow about 15 minutes for the phone’s 5,000 mAh battery to drop from 7 to 63%, then a little over a quarter of an hour to go to 100%. On the other hand, wireless charging is not part of the game. Regarding the raw power of the smartphone, it is very high since it is powered by a powerful Snapdragon 870 compatible 5G, which has the particularity of being more powerful than the Poco F3 and Vivo X60 Pro, while the latter are with the same graphics chip. A difference that we owe in particular to the good cooling system of the GT Neo 2 to maintain good performance on a daily basis.
