A phone that charges from 1 to 100% in less than 15 minutes? You say it’s not possible? And yet I checked before my own eyes. The realme GT NEO 3 entering the Polish market was equipped with a powerful 150W charge. I discharged the phone to 1% and then connected it to the charging station, it took exactly 14 minutes and 48 seconds to reach 100% battery. You can see how it looks in practice in the video attached to this article. I also compared the new realme GT NEO 3 with the legend of digital photography. How was it? More details in this article.
realme GT NEO 3. Specification
On June 8, 2022, Realme introduced the fastest phone on the market, a Chinese product branded as realme GT NEO 3 with 150W charging. Super Express publishers were one of the first in Poland to have the opportunity to test how the ultra-fast charging of a new smartphone works. But one by one… The heart of the new realm is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chip (5 nm, cores up to 2.85 GHz) with HyperEngine 5.0 technology. For this we have 12 GB of RAM, the data memory is 128 or 256 GB. Realme GT NEO 3 is equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an HDR 10+ certificate.
UltraDart charging on realme GT NEO 3 150W. Super fast charging
The most powerful feature of the new realme is, of course, super fast charging. In the editorial text of the Chinese manufacturer’s new smartphone, we were able to recharge from 1 to 100% in less than 15 minutes, which is why the new realme beats the competition. UltraDart charging technology is responsible for this fast charging. Is it safe? According to the industry website Telepolis.pl: – We have taken care of the safety of fast charging. The independent charging chip ensures immediate disconnection in risky situations. Our super fast charging is safe, which is confirmed by the TÜV Rheinland certificate. – underlined Łukasz Łyżywa, regional sales manager at realme.

Without weight there is no class i.e. how much does the realme GT NEO 3 charger weigh
Of course, the question remains whether super-fast charging will become a new field of competition for smartphone manufacturers or just a dead end in a situation where most users connect the phone to the outlet for the night anyway. Does anyone remember the Nokia 3310, which could survive 25 days in standby mode … But back to Earth … For people who intensively use smartphones – both for business purposes and mainly for games and social media, realme’s proposal is worth considering. – NEO GT 3 is a typical gaming phone, for the user who, on the one hand, depends on the smoothness of the game, and on the other hand, wants to recharge the batteries as soon as possible. – highlights realme Skateboard. It is worth paying attention to the weight of the new charger, which weighs up to 187 grams. For comparison, an 80W charger weighs 107 grams. The weight of the charger will therefore be felt in the laptop bag. The weight is partly compensated by the fact that it is a charger suitable for charging not only a smartphone but also a laptop, tablet, smartwatch or wireless headphones.
realme GT NEO 3 – camera
The new realme GT NEO 3 is equipped with a pretty cool selfie camera with a resolution of 16 Mpix (f/2.45). The main camera is 50 Mpix with a Sony IMX766 matrix (f/1.88), an 8 Mpix wide angle and a 2 Mpix macro. How is this set? Definitely very good, just look at this photo of a young basketball player from Warsaw in action:
realme GT NEO 3 vs digital photography legend
And like the new realme GT NEO 3 clashing with the legend of digital photography, i.e. Huawei P30 Pro with a set: 40 MP Leica quad camera (wide lens, f/1.6 aperture, OIS) + 20 MP (super-wide lens, f/2.2 aperture) + 8 MP (telephoto, f/3.4 aperture, OIS). The cameras are 3 years apart, so it would seem like an eternity in the world new technologies. Below is a summary of the photos taken with both models. Who is the winner? I am curious about your opinions – the comments under the article are at your disposal.

realme GT NEO 3 price and summary
Realme GT NEO 3 will come to the Polish market at a promotional price of 2,999 PLN for the 12GB + 256GB version. Is it worth buying a product from a Chinese manufacturer? If you are a very heavy user who has to charge the phone even twice a day, charging in 15 minutes will be a great help and a great thing. The phone fits brilliantly in the hand – frankly, the silicone case included in the set isn’t necessary, that’s a big compliment in a market dominated by slippery phones that fall out of your hands. The new realme works well and is fun to use. Embedded camera ? In my opinion, it does the job, the photos are almost fabulously juicy, the details are clear. However, I doubt he will become a legend in terms of photography.
