The design of the Realme 8 is largely focused on keeping it slim and light, and it succeeds admirably. The display, which is a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with a full-HD+ resolution rather than an LCD panel, is the biggest difference from the Realme 7. The Realme 8 is one of the more comfortable phones I’ve recently evaluated, and it should be simple to use.
The MediaTek Helio G95 SoC from the Realme 7 is used in the Realme 8, and it has shown to be adequate for gaming at this pricing point. It’s one of the first phones to come pre-installed with Realme UI 2.0, which is based on Android 11. The Realme 8 is quick in terms of performance. I did miss the fluidity of scrolling that a 90Hz panel provided, but usability was still excellent. The Helio G95 SoC also performs well in benchmarks, achieving 2,89,587 points in AnTuTu. The Realme 8’s cameras are clearly serviceable in the correct situations, but this model isn’t a step up in terms of features or quality from the Realme 7.
The Realme 8 may not have any major drawbacks, but it doesn’t provide much in the way of unique features, particularly when compared to its siblings, making it difficult to recommend.
