The 3T just felt outdated to some commenters. The Snapdragon 870 is a fine, efficient chipset, but is quite old now and doesn’t look good in the €400 price segment. The 1/2.0” 64MP sensor is hard to get excited about as well. Weekly poll results: the Realme GT Neo 3T struggles to attract fans
This result shouldn’t be too surprising, the GT Neo2 itself was eyed with doubt when it launched, but it did find a decent number of supporters. Releasing nearly the same hardware six months later was never going to be a popular move.
The Realme GT Neo 3T is not viable at its usual price of €430, according to last week’s survey (and the temporary €30 reduction isn’t enough). What went wrong, exactly? Well, you can get the same hardware for less money, and you don’t even have to look long — Realme’s own GT Neo2 is essentially the same phone, with the exception of the charging (65W vs. 80W) and camera (the Neo2 actually has a slightly bigger sensor). It’s also available for €330, which is €100 cheaper than the 3T.
Anyway, cheaper phones may not be GT Neo 3T’s biggest worry – instead it was compared to similarly priced and even to more expensive phones and it was found lacking. Indeed, more people would rather spend €600 for a Realme GT Neo 3 (non-T) than get a 3T. Of course, the GT Neo2 and GT Neo 3 are just the in-house alternatives – competing companies have many excellent alternatives in the this price segment.
