Realme 8 – Elegant Smartphone (128 GB, 8 GB)4.5/10 (Expert Score)
The Realme 8 reuses the MediaTek Helio G95 SoC from the Realme 7, which has proven to be good enough for gaming at this price level. It’s one of the first phones to ship with Realme UI 2.0 out of the box which is based on Android 11. In terms of performance, the Realme 8 feels snappy. I did miss the fluidity in scrolling offered by a 90Hz display but usability was still good. The Helio G95 SoC posts good benchmark numbers too, scoring 2,89,587 points in AnTuTu. The cameras on the Realme 8 are definitely serviceable in the right conditions, but this model is not a step up from the Realme 7 in terms of features or quality.
The Realme 8 might not have any deal-breaking flaws, but it doesn’t really offer anything special, even when compared to its own siblings, which makes it hard to recommend.
Overall, with its strong chipset and 8 GB RAM, the Realme 8 is an excellent gadget for streamlining your daily operations. With the 5000 mAh battery and 30W Fast Charging compatibility, gamers can play for long periods of time and compete in several tournaments. Realme has now fulfilled the demand of people looking for amazing cameras by integrating powerful quad cameras on the backside, along with a 16 MP selfie-shooting lens.
