Design, build quality, handling

The Realme GT5 Pro is the first smartphone from the brand with an IP64 rating - we've seen a couple of IP54s in the last few weeks, and there have been splash-resistant Realmes, but this one is the closest we've seen to proper dust and water sealing. The GT5 Pro is one of just six handsets in our database with this combination of dust and water protection - and it's a peculiar selection of devices that share a parent company. Now, we're not saying the GT5 Pro will survive a dunk in a fishbowl, but we wouldn't be surprised if it does - otherwise, it's only rated for splashes, but it's also dust-tight.

Realme GT5 Pro review

Moving on from our musings on IP ratings towards the matters of color and finish, the GT5 Pro is available in three colorways - our review unit goes by Red Rock (according to Google Translate), and there are also Bright Moon and Starry Night.

Realme GT5 Pro review

Our orange unit and the (off-)white one have vegan leather back panels. It's one of the softer takes on the subject and makes for a nicely grippy feel, while also being immune to fingerprints. The black one is one of those sparkly glitter-like finishes that looks plain at first sight but quickly turns fancy once bright light hits it (ideally sun) - the proper high-end vivo X100 Pro was the latest we had with that type of glass back.
