Reviews for the realme 8

81.4% Realme 8 smartphone review - Without fast internet the better phone? | Notebookcheck
The realme 8 4G costs just as much as its 5G brother. Does that make sense? Are there better features elsewhere? In the review, we take a look at for whom the inexpensive smartphone is worthwhile.
Realme 8 Gaming Review - Better than Realme 8 Pro?

On our gaming review of the realme 8 Pro, we maxed the settings to test its gaming capabilities. and now We will do the same with the realme 8 to see if the Helio G95 can outperform the snapdragon 720g.

Also despite the lofty advertised 1000 nits of max brightness, the legibility in bright sun is a challenge. Color rendition isn't particularly accurate either. The quad-camera setup also doesn't quite live up to its hardware potential. That latter point can potentially be addressed with software updates, but as things currently stand, the Realme 8 arguably gets outpaced in the photography department by the Realme 8 5G despite its basic camera hardware.

Another one of the new addition of realme on their number series. This is the realme 8, unlike the pro version, this one has a smaller 64mp main sensor, but with a bigger battery. What else separates the vanilla version from the Pro version?

realme 8 Unboxing, Quick Review: All About the Display
Source: Unbox English
Despite being almost similar to its predecessor as far as specs are concerned, our unboxing of the realme 8 in the Philippines shows the shift from IPS to AMOLED does make a good impact. The display upgrade not just introduces an in-display fingerprint scanner and a better overall video experience, but can address the rather inferior battery life of the realme 7.

70% Realme 8 Review: Not Enough of a Change
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
After spending a week with the Realme 8, it's safe to conclude that it's nothing more than a Realme 7 (Review) with an AMOLED display and slightly worse camera performance. I think the Realme 7 is still a better pick as it's less expensive, offers a 90Hz display, and hopefully should receive an Android 11 update soon. The only real advantage of the Realme 8 is that it's slimmer and lighter than the 7. Realme is also preparing to launch a 5G version of the 8 very soon, which could be priced between the Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro, so it's worth at least waiting.

Realme 8 Review: Steady Performer Caught in Note-land
Source: Tech PP English
The Realme 8 is a good phone but while it is a competitive one, it does not really bring anything startlingly new to the table – in fact, at times it even does not seem a big step forward from the Realme 7. It is a very good option for those who want to stay in the Realme ecosystem and want a Super AMOLED display, but it has some very formidable competition to contend with.

70% Realme 8 review: Able and efficient smartphone
Source: Gadgets Now English
Realme 8 is a capable smartphone and it does almost everything a mid-range smartphone should do. At a starting price of Rs 14,999, the Realme 8 is a good option for those looking for a practical smartphone that offers good battery life, display, a decent set of cameras and also excels in design. So, if you are looking for a smartphone in a budget that does not disappoint then Realme 8 could very well be your next choice.

80% Realme 8 review: New design, familiar experience
Source: The Indian Express English
Realme 8 isn’t a major update over the Realme 7, but you are getting a vibrant AMOLED panel and good performance at an accessible price. Those who want a great battery life will also be happy with this device. You also get 128GB as the base storage variant. The cameras on the Realme 8 will give you good shots in daylight. It is priced at Rs 14,999. Realme 8 is a good smartphone as it is offering most of the key features that a user might be looking for in the Rs 15,000 price range. However, if you care about having stereo speakers, a high-refresh-rate display and a good camera setup, then you will have to look elsewhere. The Redmi Note 10 Pro smartphone might have an edge in the camera department or you can straight up consider the Realme 8 Pro, which has a better camera to offer.

realme 8 Review

The realme 8 isn’t a game changer but has enough traits to draw attention. From its Super AMOLED display, Android 11 out-of-the-box, 30W fast charging, plenty of storage, to its 64 MP quad cameras, it can be a good pick under ₹15,000 as far as if you aren’t asking for a 90 Hz screen. The realme 8 is currently priced at ₹14,999 for its 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and goes up to 16,999 for 8 GB RAM variant.

70% Realme 8 review: a lot like Realme 7, but with an AMOLED display
Source: 91mobiles English
Realme has played it safe with the Realme 8. The phone is not a major upgrade from the Realme 7 apart from the display moving from LCD to AMOLED. With respect to the chipset, cameras, and battery, the two phones are identical. This means that Realme 7 users have no reason to upgrade to this phone. The predecessor also comes with an arguably better design. The Realme 8 is not as exciting as the Realme X7 and Realme Narzo 30 Pro that launched earlier this year. However, the Realme 8 is still a solid smartphone if you look at it in comparison to other devices in this segment. The closest competitor is the Redmi Note 10, which starts from Rs 15,999. By paying Rs 1,000 more, you get a 120Hz AMOLED display, a better set of cameras, and stereo speakers. The Realme 8 offers a great display, good cameras, and a decent performance, but it could have been a better successor to the Realme 7.

ARM Mali-G76 MP4: Integrated graphics card based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture. Uses 4 of the 20 possible clusters and according to ARM offers twice the performance per cluster than the old Mali-G72.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Helio G95: ARM based octa-core SoC with 2x big ARM Cortex-A76 cores and 6x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores. All clocked up to 2.05 GHz. Integrates a Cat-12 LTE Modem (4G) and a ARM Mali-G76 graphics card clocked at 900 MHz (+100 MHz versus the identical G90T).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.40":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.177 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


74.89%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
