It is rare to get a 5G smartphone this cheap: The realme 8 5G costs just 199 Euros. It even comes with a 90 Hz display and a pretty fast SoC. Is the smartphone the new price-performance king?

While 5G at the Realme 8 5G's price point is an impressive achievement in itself, the company trimmed a little too much off this generation's budget 5G blower to render it a worthwhile buy versus the competition.

Realme 8 5G Review – Better Price but with Downgraded Specs?
Source: Manila Shaker English
Overall, Realme 8 5G is a worthy device and one of this era’s affordable 5G handsets. Even though it has downgraded specs from the Realme 7 5G, Realme managed to fit the price ratio inside the competition’s bracket. Most competitors offer the same chipset, and it feels like a counter-offer. If you’re not into 5G, some devices within the price range offer more than you expected. On top of that, if you still want to experience having the latest realme phone, the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro are both equipped with a Super AMOLED panels and have more cameras and megapixels. But they are more pricey than the Realme 8 5G.

Locally the realme 8 5G has an SRP of PHP 11,990, making it a worthy contender in the affordable 5G smartphone market. It is slightly better than the 5G-ready POCO M3 Pro and Redmi Note 10, but if 5G connectivity isn’t much of a priority for you, there are better options available in its price range. Nonetheless, if 5G connectivity is something you really want to experience, which by the way will still depend on if it’s available in your area, then the realme 8 5G is a recommendable smartphone for you.

Then we have Realme, which already has a long line of solid, inexpensive phones behind it. New for 2021 is the Realme 8 5G, which offers more of the same: a respectable level of performance and an appealing design for not much money at all. In fact, you won't be able to find a cheaper 5G phone than this right now in some markets.

The Realme 8 5G's early bird price is €179, but it will climb up to €199 once the promotion ends. If you get one at the special price, it will make a perfect sense - you probably won't be able to find a better offer. And we do recommend getting it while this deal lasts.

70% Realme 8 5G review: A good cheap 5G phone
Source: Tom's Guide English
It’s hard to find 5G compatibility on budget phones, so the Realme 8 5G just existing is already a benefit. It’s also got a surprisingly nice display for such a cheap phone with its AMOLED panel and 90Hz refresh rate, so you can put that 5G to good use enjoying a video or online gaming while away from Wi-Fi.

60% Realme 8 5G review: Brings 5G on a budget
Source: Gadgets Now English
To ensure that the phone is future-ready — 5G support — Realme has made quite a few compromises compared to the non-5G variant of the smartphone. The Realme 8 has a better display and better charging capabilities. Realme 8 5G misses out on both features.The phone’s design is quite nice but it is a fingerprint magnet. The camera performance leaves a lot to be desired on most counts. Having said that, if you are looking for a phone that handles routine tasks capably and easily then this could be the phone for you. Realme has done a fine job on making a phone that will please most users who buy devices for good performance and little else. Starting at Rs 14,999, Realme has got 5G on a budget but don’t forget that there’s still no clarity on when 5G will be ready in India. Realme 8 5G is a phone that is ‘future-ready’ but misses out on some of the features that matter in the present.

65% Review: The Realme 8 5G shows us the real cost of 5G
Source: Android Police English
For the sake of 5G connectivity, the phone sacrifices a bunch of features available in Realme’s own competing devices — the Realme 8 and the Narzo 30 Pro 5G. The camera setup is inadequate, charging is slow, and the display, though isn't bad, is not an OLED panel. While these may not seem like absolute dealbreakers, there are competing offerings like the Realme 8, the Redmi Note 10 Pro, and the Moto G40 Fusion that offer a lot more bang for your buck and even have extras like stereo speakers, higher-refresh-rate displays, IP certification, glass backs (granted, that's subjective), and faster charging. In order to qualify to be the cheapest 5G phone in the Indian market, the Realme 8 5G makes too many compromises. Being the cheapest 5G phone is of little value when 5G spectrum hasn't even been auctioned in the country, and mass adoption is at least a couple of years away. Rest assured that by the time 5G rolls out for real, you'll have a buffet of budget phones to choose from that will be better on all fronts.

73% Realme 8 5G Review: A Solid Showing For The New Dimensity 700 Soc
Source: Think Digit English
The Realme 8 5G is a feather in the company's cap when it comes to performance in phones under 20K. The smartphone performs admirably well in most scenarios and beats out its competitors in most benchmarks. The phone's real-world performance didn't disappoint either when it comes to gaming or day-to-day tasks. What did disappoint us though is the camera's performance that proved to be mediocre, at best.

70% Realme 8 5G review: all eggs in one basket
Source: 91mobiles English
The Realme 8 5G is a capable phone in the performance aspect but its average camera quality and less than impressive charging speeds do raise some question marks. Yes, you are getting 5G on a budget but does it really make sense to sacrifice some key aspects of a smartphone experience just to have the next-gen communication standard, especially since the networks aren’t available yet? I think not. Getting a 5G-capable flagship or even a mid-range phone is acceptable since they are devices that will end up being used for a longer time. 5G on budget phones right now does not make them a worthwhile investment. Display and software on the Realme 8 5G are decent but the downgrade to IPS LCD is again a compromise that could have been avoided. I think that the Redmi Note 10 Pro is an extraordinary device that does miss out on 5G, but is a better phone in just about all other aspects, available at a similar price.

Realme 8 5G hands-on review: What’s the point?
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Realme 8 5G delivers on fast data speeds, long-lasting battery life and a fluid 90Hz display — sacrificing camera quality, an in-screen fingerprint reader and the inclusion of a fast charger, alongside downgrading internal components and stuffing it full with bloatware.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
