Now let’s talk about the Camera. The Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 comes with a triple camera setup. The main camera is 50 megapixel F/1.9. There is an ultra-wide lens of 8megapixels as well. This is a pretty amazing Camera setup which means the photos will contain more details. There is only 4K at 60 FPS. The videos will contain more details and will be sharper thanks to its chipset. There is optical image stabilization on the main lens. The Oppo Realme GT Neo 3. Also supported the slow-motion 480P at 960 FPS. This is the same sensor that was used in the last-gen Realme 9 Pro Plus. This sensor is sharp and big. That collects more light at night thus making it the best camera sensor. The angel view of the ultra-wide is 120 degrees.

Lenses:

Wide (main) lens – 50 MP
– Aperture: f/1.9
– Focal length: 24 mm
– Sensor: 1/1.56″, Sony IMX766 (Exmor-RS CMOS)
– Phase autofocus
– Optical stabilization
Ultra-wide lens – 8 MP
– Aperture: f/2.3
– Focal length: 15 mm
– Sensor: 1/4.0″ (CMOS)
Macro lens – 2 MP
– Aperture: f/2.4
Camera features – Bokeh mode
– Pro mode

The main sensor is 50MP. Which is Sony IMX766. Sony IMX766 sensor can be seen in a lot of smartphones in the midrange category also. And also in Flagships like the OPPO Find X3 Pro, OnePlus 9RT, OPPO Reno 6 Pro. The main camera saves 12.5-megapixel images by default. These are all right with enough detail for this class and true to life colors the dynamic range is good. However, these photos are not ideal with visible noise and over-sharpening, and some corner softness. This sensor is brighter and big. Thanks to the aperture f/1.9. This sensor can take stronger portrait shots and can take great shots in the nighttime because it’s combined with a wider aperture. This sensor is very good at maintaining a good dynamic range in harsh conditions. This sensor is also good at taking very amazing portraits with strong bokeh and good depth of field. At night the main cam takes good low-light photos. There is enough detail realistic-looking exposure and well-preserved colors. The noise is handled well too night mode photos are sharper with more resolved detail and, you get a wider dynamic range with restored highlights, and develop shadows while the exposure is slightly brighter. The Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 doesn’t turn night and day but can take best night shots. It is a 50MP sensor so, combining that with great software can result in the best in smartphone photography. The autofocus in this camera sensor is incredibly fast. The sensor is a dual pixel. Overall the sensor is big, bright, and powerful. There is also Optical Image Stabilization support on this sensor. Which is not smooth like the other flagship model does, but it’s good enough to take some of the best steady shots.

There is also an ultra-wide lens of 8Mp. This is also a great sensor considering its capabilities. The 8-megapixel ultra-wide photos are ok for this price range. But nothing great you get enough contrast and wide dynamic range but they come out soft with a low level of detail and the colors are a bit off. In harsh lighting conditions, this camera sensor suffers a lot because of its aperture which is only f/2.3. This sensor cannot take enough light to take good shots at night. There’s no night mode for the ultra-wide cam you can force HDR on getting a better result, and you will end up with less noise. In the video, this camera sensor has a lot of noise. Which is very annoying. You can’t use this ultra-wide camera at night time because it will contain so much grain and noise in the videos and pictures. The sensor aperture is F/2.2 which cannot collect more light in night time thus can take average shots at night time with more noise.

There is also a 2mp macro lens. Which is not used regularly. These camera sensors can take good shots with amazing details, amazing sharpness. The main lens also has optical image stabilization. Which is not as good as the flagship phones but still can do a good job while taking photos or making videos.



SELFIE CAMERA:

Megapixels 16 megapixels
Image resolution 4920 x 3264
Aperture f/2.5
Focal length 26 mm
Sensor type ISOCELL CMOS
Sensor size 1/3.09″
Video resolution 1080p (Full HD) at 30 FPS

The Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 has a 16-megapixel Selfie Camera. It is good on the phone but, I’m so disappointed to see that there is no 4K recording on the Selfie Camera. The recording is only kept on 1080P up to 30 FPS. But considering this Selfie Camera is 16 megapixels. This means it will contain more details. It’s also F/2.4. So, that makes it not brighter enough at night time. Taking photos at night time will be a big issue for the sensor.

Connectivity:

Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax)
Bluetooth version 5.2
USB type USB Type-C
USB version 2
NFC* Yes
Infrared port No

It gives you a better upload and download speed. There is also an NFC port. Which is quite useful for today’s technology. Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 comes with the USB type C 2.0, which makes Charging faster and more efficient.


Network:

Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 also has 5G support with the best bandwidth.

There is no Esim support. But we do get the Hybrid slot. The download and upload speeds are also great thanks to the latest modem of this MediaTek Dimensity 8100.

SOUND:

Speakers Stereo
Headphone audio jack No
Dolby Atmos Yes

Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 doesn’t have a headphone jack. It’s a Flagship smartphone so, it has Stereo speakers with Dolby atoms support. The speakers sound well. You can listen to music and can take calls with these speakers. It’s also supported by Dolby atmos which makes the sound experience on another level. The speaker has a nice amount of bass in the sound. You can feel the beat with the nice sound.

The Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 comes in three colors. There is Black, Silver, and Blue. I personally like the black color, because it gives a natural look to the Oppo Realme GT Neo 3. There are three colors available on this smartphone. But I know everyone is going to put a case on the back of the Oppo Realme GT Neo 3.

Considering this phone for gaming and for daily usage then it’s a good option. Oppo Realme GT Neo 3 is rich in specs.
