Realme8 Announced on Wednesday in India Along with the RealMe 8 Pro. Phones are successful Realme 7 And RealMe 7 Pro Since last year. Starting at Rs.14,999, the Realme 8 MediaTek Helio G95 SoC comes with specifications like AMOLED display, 5,000mAh battery and 64MP quad cameras. Now, some of these specs seem familiar, because with the exception of the AMOLED display RealMe 7 also offers them. So, instead of giving RealMe 8 big improvements it comes as a marginal upgrade over its predecessors. I Realme 8 reviewed, And in this piece, let me tell you three reasons why RealMe 8 is a good buy and three reasons why you should skip this phone.
3 Reasons to Buy RealMe 8
Attractive AMOLED display
The only upgraded display worth talking about. The RealMe 7 comes with an LCD panel, upgraded to the RealMe 8 AMOLED screen. With the AMOLED panel, you can enjoy punch colors and deep blacks. Contrast is as good as the brightness of the screen. Overall, you can get a better viewing experience in RealMe 8 for playing games and using the media.
I was very satisfied with the cameras in RealMe8. The phone has a quad-camera system with a 64MP primary sensor, 8MP wide angle lens and 2MP sensor. The main camera provides bright and attractive colors and plenty of sharpness, looking good during the day. Other camera sensors work, as well as what one would expect from a phone in this segment, not to mention big. RealMe 8 also manages to take good low light photos.
Good gaming performance
The RealMe 8 comes with the tried and tested MediaTek Helio G95 chipset. We would love to see a different and newer processor under the hood, the MediaTek Helio G95 will keep you happy with the performance it offers. The phone offers a smooth and log-free gaming experience and it rarely stutters when doing multi-tasking. The chipset is capable of handling a heavy workload, but it will be interesting to see how old it is over time.
3 Reasons to Skip RealMe 8
Not a big upgrade from RealMe 7
If you are a RealMe 7 user you can definitely skip RealMe 8. Excluding the display, the two phones are very similar. Realme 7, in fact, offers a better design in my personal opinion to its clean matte finish rear panel. It also gets a 90 Hz refresh rate, as opposed to the standard 60 Hz refresh rate on the RealM8.
The hardware was fine
As the successor to RealMe 7, RealMe 8 will improve the hardware in some areas. We have seen the company launch phones like the RealMe Norzo30 Pro and the RealMe X77, which define themselves as affordable 5G phones and powerful performers. However, RealMe 8 does not have a wow factor that sets it apart from the audience. The phone can be powered with 50W or 65W fast charging support or a 120Hz AMOLED display.
The competition went on
While the features of the RealMe 8 are not bad when viewed alone, the competition will be tough this year. Xiaomi has launched phones like the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro, which offer compelling features at affordable prices. While the Redmi Note 10 Pro is priced at Rs 1,000 more than the Real 8, it offers a much higher value such as a 120 Hz AMOLED display and undoubtedly better design and performance.
