Summary

Quite flawless in this regard

Realme 8 Display

The phone's display is built with a 6.4 inches Super AMOLED panel and a Full HD+ resolution, leaving behind traditional LCD panels. The fingerprint sensor is an in-display one, which makes it fast and easier to utilise. The brightness of the display goes as high as 600 NITS.

realme-8-Display

The display has been provided with a Dragontrail glass screen protector that copes well with mild to moderate stresses.  The 90Hz display, lets you glide over your experience, ultra-smooth. This, in turn, gives a 50% higher refresh rate than the normal 60Hz. The 180 Hz, Touch Sampling Rate provides a quicker touch response.

Having an AMOLED display, it instantly illuminates up images and videos, making the Realme 8 a good device for media experience.

Summary

Descent and effective

Realme 8 Battery life

The device contains a Mega 5000 mAh Lithium-ion battery, that lets you "speed to infinity''! The Battery life is solid and can easily last an entire day, even after ultra-smooth and even more, in case of lighter use.

Summary

A very powerful one

Realme 8 Camera

The Realme 8 Camera is again a very empowered one. There's fixed a 64-meggpined primary camera, 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome camera in the rear. The selfie is a common 16 megapixel one. It off2-megapixel range of shooting modes or filters, inbuilt.

realme-8-Camera

The image quality is somewhat average with respect to the camera configurations. Detailing isn’t vivid and the image often cracks and gets textured upon zooming. Close-ups happen to be a lot more clearer, shot from this. The AI scene enhancer boosts colours, to give your image a fuller and contrast look. But if you require a more natural depiction, you better go with the mode off.

Low light captures in the Nightscape mode are quite of a doable quality, with a bit disturbing autofocus.

It records videos up to 4K, 30fps resolution, but without stabilisation. At lower pixels, the videos are of quite compromised quality even in bright light.

Summary

Serviceable but not as per expectations

Realme 8 Design

The build is really slim and lightweight. The all-plastic body helps it attain a total weight of 177.8 g. The buttons on Realme 8 are really firm and of good quality. At the bottom, there lies the normal speaker, headphone jack and USB Type-C port.

Now, the rear view of the device is really a tricky one. The Cyber Silver colour might look a little too bold and flashy to some, and the ''Dare to leap'' slogan imprinted on it, keeps customers hesitating for the choice. To its comparison, the Cyber Black variant is quite subtle and subdued due to the absence of the rainbow effect as in the case of CyberSilver.
