Realme GT has a very original and attractive design. There is a choice of colors, including a two-piece faux leather back, one made of faux leather, and a black glass strip with a beautiful pattern on the inside. This phone obviously reminds me of sports cars, so it is called GT. This phone is also available in a variety of colors, with a traditional glass back cover. OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a not-so-unique phone — it has a beautiful design, but it has a classic glass back, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The cell phones are more or less the same size.
Realme GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G are also very similar in display. Using these devices, you will get two 6.43-inch AMOLED panels with Full HD + 1080 x 2400 pixels and HDR10. Certification to improve image quality. There are also fingerprint readers that are not shown. The only major difference between the two panels is the refresh rate: Realme GT is better because it supports up to 120 Hz, while OnePlus Nord 2 5G stops at 90 Hz. Please note that the refresh rate does not affect the image quality, only the smoothness of the screen.
Specifications and Software
Realme GT has a better hardware department, simply because it contains a better chipset.We are referring to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 mobile platform, which is definitely stronger than the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 in the OnePlus Nord 2 5G. With Dimensity 1200 SoC, you can still get flagship-level performance, but it doesn’t matter whether you have a Snapdragon 888. The memory configuration is the same: 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal UFS 3.1 memory, depending on which option you choose. These phones run Android 11 with OxygenOS and Realme UI. Now these two user interfaces are very similar because they are both based on OPPO ColorOS.
The main advantage of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G is the best camera settings it must provide. It is equipped with a Sony IMX766 main camera with a resolution of 50 MP to provide the best photos and is also equipped with optical image stabilization. With Realme GT, you will get a 64-megapixel floor camera without OIS. The auxiliary sensors of the rear view camera module are the same: an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro. OnePlus Nord 2 5G also provides a better front camera. The resolution is 32 MP, while the Realme GT’s lens is smaller than 16 MP.
The Realme GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G have the same 4500mAh battery, which supports 65W fast charging. Are their battery life the same?It depends on the usage. If you use a 120Hz refresh rate on the Realme GT, it will use more batteries than the 90Hz on the OnePlus Nord 2 5G. In addition, Snapdragon 888 is manufactured using an improved 5nm manufacturing process. Therefore, it may provide lower power consumption in some cases, but the final battery life should not be much different.
Realme GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G for the global market start at 399 euros / 472 US dollars. Overall, for those looking for good camera specifications, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G seems more interesting. And Realme GT is more attractive to those who like the original design, higher refresh rate and better chipset, otherwise they are almost the same.
