Realme GT Neo 2 5G Review: Old Games, No Worries

 Along with the development of gadgets, the need for games with qualified specs can no longer be tolerated. Because, to experience a cool game, such as Role Playing Games (RPG), First Person Shooter (FPS), and strategy requires a sultan-level smartphone.

This is what Realme seems to be well aware of by offering the Realme GT Neo 2 5G. Eits, if the price can be said to be competitive and not expensive either.

Let's look at the review of the Realme GT Neo 2 5G in the last few weeks, how the performance of this cellphone in daily activities, being taken to games in a matter of hours can make the cellphone heat up quickly or not, and things that can be our knowledge of this device.


With an unusual appearance, the bright color of the neo green gives a different impression from existing cellphones. Yes, the neo green color looks cute and cute, but talking about the specs is certainly something different.

Brings falling in love slowly, even though in it there are other surprises. This feeling was felt the first time you saw, held and tested this new Realme phone.

Switch to the back of the phone. The green color of the highlighter of the Realme GT Neo 2 5G does not look plain, there are thick and thin lines in which the words realme and the jargon dear to leap are written. This line is unobtrusive, in fact it looks sporty in person.

Then on the top left there are two camera modules are quite large and one small size. This rear camera has a resolution of 64 MP, 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP macro camera.

Seen from the right side there is a power button, then from the left side the volume button. While at the bottom stacked with speakers, a USB type C port, a mic, and both nano-size dual SIM slots. Meanwhile, in the section there is only a mic.

When holding it in plain condition, aka without a casing, it doesn't leave fingerprints on the back of the phone.

Realme GT Neo 2 5G has body dimensions of 162.9 x 75.8 x 9 mm x 8.6 mm combined with a weight of 200 grams, we feel this device is quite okay to hold comfortably.

It's a bit of a shame, this charming neo green bandage must be tightly closed by the casing. But this is the user's choice, to protect the phone if it falls.


With a 6.62-inch landscape display that carries the E4 AMOLED with Full HD + resolution. Then it is supported by a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a touch sampling rate of 600 Hz, and a brightness level of 1,300 nits which is a beautiful combination in terms of pampering the eyes on the Realme GT Neo 2 5G.

Punch holes are placed on the side of the screen enough to provide flexibility in viewing the screen. As we know, mobile phones that adhere to the present, want to have thin bezels, but the camera position in the middle is often a problem for users when playing games or streaming movies.

While the Realme GT Neo 2 5G is held horizontally or tilted, the screen looks as if it is more spacious with nothing 'perforated' due to being blocked by the front camera.

Also invited to multitask, this cellphone can provide a fast response. Rarely do we experience slowness when switching applications.

The quality of this screen is even more fantastic with the Dual Stereo Speakers feature which has already bagged Dolby Atmos certification. It means, the screen is relieved, uh, the audio is not cans for sure.


Realme GT Neo 2 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 870 7nm Mobile Platform chipset with Andreno 650 GPU supported by 12GB LPDDR5 RAM + up to 7GB Virtual RAM, 256GB UFS 3.1 ROM, and Android 11 with realme UI 2.0.

This spec seems to indicate that Realme has gone all out to provide the best for users, especially those who like to play games.

Let's test it with a test application, before describing the gaming experience with this Realme GT Neo 2 5G.

Playing light games, there's definitely no problem for the Realme GT Neo 2 5G. The response given is no longer a challenge. So, what about heavy ones, such as Genshin Impact? Apparently it's not a problem either, the response given is still in a comfortable level.

Likewise playing games that need fast responsiveness, such as PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty Mobile. You can also play old games, because this cellphone has a cooling system of 4129 mm2 which is arranged in an 8-layer graphite structure with Diamond Thermal Gel on the CPU.

Diamond particles measuring 40-50um are used as materials to make gels to speed up the cooling process, making it effective and efficient. Even though I was invited to play the Genshin Impact game for 2 hours non-stop, it didn't feel hot even though it was a little warm.

As the name suggests, this phone supports 5G network. Indonesia currently has three cellular operators that have deployed 5G networks, including Telkomsel, XL Axiata, and Indosat Ooredoo. You can try 5G using the Realme GT Neo 2 5G.


While speaking of battery capacity, this Realme phone has 5,000 mAh which can be used all day without charging. Of course, this condition is for daily activities, such as browsing, social media, or chatting.

In conditions of 20% battery power, it can still last up to one hour more which can be used to watch YouTube, while the highest quality Genshin Impact game is about 30 minutes.

Realme provides 65W ultra-fast flash charging. To fully charge to 100% it takes only half an hour.


For photography needs, the Realme GT Neo 2 5G is equipped with a triple camera. The main lens measures 64MP f/1.8, an 8MP f/2.3 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP macro lens. Moving on to the front, the device is equipped with a 16MP f/2.5 selfie camera.

The hallmark of the Realme photo produced is a more pronounced contrast. For indoors, as well as in night conditions, it really helps.

But if it's outside, the contrast is a bit too much. So, you need to set it manually if you want to get the shots you want.


Realme GT Neo 2 5G by design is amazing, it can be categorized out of the box with a light green or neo green color as Realme calls it. The screen to the interface is also okay, referring to good.

The owner of the Realme GT Neo 2 5G can certainly experience using the fifth generation cellular network.

Bloatware or default applications on Realme phones are often a problem, because some are not needed, but it doesn't matter because there are things that can be uninstalled.

In terms of playing games, the Realme GT Neo 2 5G can be included in the list of recommendations to have, because it can compete with premium class cellphones. Old games also don't heat up quickly. Meanwhile, the quality of the camera, yes that's it.
