Realme continues to surprise its fans around the world with its collaboration proposals for its smartphones range top. A few months ago we discovered the Dragon Ball version of GT NEO 2. This time it throws the house out the window with the launch of the realme GT Neo3 Naruto Editiona variant of the base cell phone that will surely motivate you to find your ninja path.
Although it is not officially for sale in Mexico, as well as in various regions of the world, we had the opportunity to try it in recent weeks and these are our impressions.
- Panel: AMOLED 6.7 inches Full HD, 2412×1080
- Processor: MediaTek Dimension 8100
- RAM: 12GB
- ROM (Internal Storage): 256GB
- Drums: 4,500mAh
- Frontal camera: 16MP
- Rear camera: Main with 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, 8MP ultra wide, 2MP macro
MediaTek empowers this device with the Dimensity 8100 chip, which, as in other brand devices with these processors, presents an exceptional level of optimization and performance. Another peculiarity that we notice when turning it on is the fast loading of the operating system, which does not take long to show the installed applications and shortcuts in the start menu.
This also happens with high demand applications such as Apex Legends Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, or PUBG MOBILE, which it plays without problems, although without any peculiarity that makes it stand out in this area. Of course, the graphic performance takes it to the limit in terms of the loading of the biomes or the fluidity of the FPS, without mostly conditioning the heating of the back of the device, which makes it one of the ideal phones for casual gamers or those starting to immerse themselves in the world of competitive gaming.
As for 360 image processing, such as with a Ricoh camera, we had no major problem, and it was even agile in the transfer and playback of this type of multimedia content.
With a resolution of 2412×1080, its AMOLED FullHD+ panel provides an average color display, despite the fact that it has a unique tool with default settings, we do not perceive a deep treatment in the images, only a slight increase in the warm tone with the option ” vivid”.
In addition, it has an HDR video processing system that improves its visual appearance, although the team itself warns that when it is activated, the brightness of the screen can increase, causing the possible overheating of the back. However, one of the features that made it stand out in the consumption of multimedia or gaming content was its refresh rate, which can be modulated from 60hz to 120hz, or select the automatic mode, option, which according to the system , improves battery performance, although we didn’t really notice a substantial change in battery life.
When talking about the consumption of multimedia content, on YouTube we managed to reproduce content in 2160p 60FPS HDR, a fairly high standard considering the range in which the phone is located. In the case of Amazon Prime Video, as well as sports channels such as Fox Sports or F1.
This is one of the features that has left us speechless, having its battery divided into two modules, charging it makes two modes available to the user. The first of them, the “normal”, completes the charge of the equipment in just 29 minutes, going from 2% to 100%, while the fast charge mode, with which it uses the 150W of its powerful charger, I go from 1% to 100% in just 16 minutes.
Its duration was around a day and a half with all the tests mentioned above, without activating the energy saving mode.
This is one of the items that gave us mixed results, in optimal lighting conditions, it provides photographs of great detail and color, the wide angle throws postcards with a greater angle of vision, almost replicating the panoramic mode, although in our tests it seems that It darkened the shot a bit compared to the normal lens.
The x10 digital zoom presented a considerable level of grain in the shot, in addition to the fact that it did not finish focusing completely, so we do not suggest its use in situations of a lot of movement if you need to take detailed photos. This was something that also happened to us in places with regular or poor lighting, so we recommend using it in a measured way and even supported by an external lamp.
As for video recording, it allows a quality of up to 4K at 60FPS, but like the camera, it presented problems in terms of night shots, in certain cases, it even impregnated the shot with a kind of non-existent mist in the environment, perhaps to compensate for the lack of light.
Selfies also behave in a particular way, in places with a good light source, we will have good photographs or alone, while night postcards or in places with several lighting points will overexpose the user’s skin complexion. In addition, it makes available to the user a series of tools that will help improve your appearance for these handy shots for social networks.
One of the main additions to this team is the customization layer with icons inspired by the work of Masashi Kishimoto, in addition to a series of exclusive wallpapers included in the software. It should be noted that being a smartphone that is only available in certain parts of the world, the unit provided for this review only had pre-installed applications for the Asian region, however, thanks to the phone clone solution, we were able to install certain software. such as the Play Store to download official software from the Google store.
Like other equipment of the brand, it incorporates the realme lab, a function testing section where the manufacturer grants the user the possibility of evaluating betas that will soon be released in new versions of its operating system.
For that gamer in you, it incorporates the software solution called Hyperboost, a platform that allows us to monitor the performance of the system with the game that we are playing, as well as knowing how many frames per second the equipment is throwing at us. But if you want to take your game to another level, it is also possible to modify the tactile response of the equipment, optimize the performance of the network, and suspend notifications to avoid distractions. In addition, as in other equipment of the brand, it has the GT-modean overclocking with which the system increases the internal processing of the games that we are running, but not before alerting us that the system may possibly increase its temperature.
Unlike the original version, this outfit has distinctive details from Naruto’s jacket in Shippuden, such as the black and orange colors, as well as the iconic red swirl present from the first installment of the anime. On the other hand, the camera module replicates the bands that are given to the ninjas of the leaf village, while the legend “realme X Naruto” can be read, a detail that fans of the franchise will immediately recognize.
By placing it horizontally, we will find a stereo arrangement of the external speakers, thus improving the playback of multimedia content, a feature that has become common in new generation devices. At the bottom of the device is the tray for the SIM card and the USB C charging port.
The panel is girded by an almost imperceptible bezel, while the front camera is positioned at the center of the top through a moderate hole punch.
Realme has broken boundaries with its disruptive teams and sensational collaborations, despite this, in our evaluations we always prioritize the performance of the teams, above all. This GT Neo3 proposal next to one of the new global anime icons of the last two decades, Naruto Shippuden, leaves much to be desired in its photographic section, however, we consider that the optimization of its chip, both for productivity operations as well as for gaming, as well as the unbeatable performance of its battery, which literally takes minutes to recharge, make it one of the ideal phones for those who depend on it in extreme use throughout their daily routine.
I RECOMMEND YOU
