High-end gaming smartphones don’t come cheap – take a look at Asus’ ROG Phone 5, which has everything a gamer might want, but comes at a price. Asus’ ROG Phone 5 (First impressions) is available in three variants priced between Rs. 49,999 for the base version and a whopping Rs. 79,999 for the top-of-the-line ROG Phone 5 Ultimate.

Realme GT Neo 2 Summary

The Realme GT Neo 2 is a solid contender as a mid-range gaming smartphone. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor offers plenty of raw performance and the phone’s cooling system does a good job of sustaining that performance during long gaming sessions.

The Neo Green finish of the GT Neo 2 does stand out quite a bit and bright neon green colour can be a bit too much for some buyers. Thankfully, Realme offers two other subtle colourways that also look equally unique.

Battery life with the 5,000mAh battery is excellent and easily lasts a day and half even with some gaming sessions. The dual speakers are quite loud and clear and make for an immersive experience while gaming and are loud enough for watching movies as well.

Camera performance is a mixed bag at best. While daylight performance is good, it’s not consistent. Low light camera performance isn’t great and the same can be said about video. And this also means that the GT Neo 2 is not an all-rounder.
