Summary Realme 8

The design of the Realme 8 is concentrated on making it thin and lightweight and does a great job at this. The major difference from Realme 7 is that the Realme 7 lies in the display that is the 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a full HD+ resolution instead of an LCD screen. It’s the Realme 8 is one of the most comfortable phones I’ve recently reviewed and should be a breeze to use.

Realme 8 Realme 8 reuses the MediaTek Helio G95 SoC that was used in the Realme 7, which has been proven to be adequate to play games at this price at this level. It’s one of the very first phones to come with the Realme UI 2.0 from the beginning, which is built upon Android 11. Regarding performance Realme 8 is fast. Realme 8 feels snappy. I didn’t like the fluid scrolling capabilities offered by the 90Hz display, but the usability was good. This Helio G95 SoC has good benchmark performance as well, scoring 2,895,587 points on AnTuTu. These cameras of the Realme 8 are definitely serviceable under the right conditions However, it isn’t a leap up on that of the Realme 7 in terms of specifications or performance.

Realme 8 Realme 8 might not have any major flaws however, it doesn’t have anything exceptional, not in comparison to its peers which makes it difficult to recommend it.
