Reviews for the realme 8i

74% Realme 8i Review: Jack of All Trades
Source: Tech PP English
So should you buy the Realme 8i? The phone is available for Rs 13,999 for the 4+64GB variant and Rs. 15,999 for the 6+128GB variant. At this price, it faces some serious competition from one of the most popular devices in this segment – the Redmi Note 10, which comes with a Snapdragon 678 chipset and a Super AMOLED display. In fact, the 6+128GB variant of the 8i is priced very close to the company’s own Realme 8, which has 5G support and an 90Hz LCD display. That said, if you are looking for a device that offers great battery life, decent performance, capable cameras, and more, you can consider buying the Realme 8i. Yes, it also has its fair share of shortcomings like slower charging and a single speaker, but the Realme 8i is a pretty good smartphone for the price if you can overlook those issues.

70% Realme 8i review: progressively better

So, where does that leave us? Well, the Realme 8i retails for Rs 13,999 and Rs 15,999 for the 4GB and 6GB RAM variants respectively. For the price, the smartphone brings good performance, a big 120Hz display, and solid battery backup to the mix. Of course, the handset’s chipset has to be tweaked to support graphically-intensive games better. That said, having tested Helio G95 and Snapdragon 662-based devices like the Redmi Note 10S and the Realme 7i, I can confidently say that the Helio G96 chip is, in fact, a better performing SoC – it just needs to be optimised better. Lest I forget, the handset’s virtual memory should come in clutch for buyers opting for the 4GB RAM variant as well.

ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
