It just got launched in malaysia here for rm1299 for a single spec. It comes with 8 gigabytes of ram and 128 gigabytes of internal memory, but this device here is a pretty interesting one and why i say that is because um there’s a couple of uh, really interesting decisions that have been made about this device right here. So first up a couple of things has been downgraded. A couple of specifications has been remade and i’m talking it with reference to the real me, seven pro so and there’s only one major item that has actually been upgraded and i think you might already know what that is about. So we’ll talk a little bit about all that and whether realme is headed in the right direction, with what they’re doing with the realme 8 pro. So before. I start that i just want to show you guys what came in the box. Naturally, you get your very standard casing right here, transparent case, nothing too spectacular about that. You also get your 50 watt charger, so this is the china version, but obviously, if you’re in malaysia you’ll get the malaysian version, you also get your type c cable right here and that’s, pretty much everything that you get in the box, including your device of course. So taking a look at the uh realme 8 pro right here i mean a lot of people on youtube, have already been complaining about this, dare to leave being too big and whatnot, but to a certain extent.
I believe that some people might actually like these wordings. There i mean me personally, i’m, not a huge fan of this, in fact, i’m, not really a huge fan of the back panel as well. It is this very smooth kind of like sandstone kind of like feeling at the back here. Take a look at this detail that you can see on the back panel right here. It is actually very, very slippery and i’ve almost dropped the device a couple of times now uh. Of course, i didn’t use the case, but just bear in mind that this is super slippery to hold, but it does looks nice. I mean in a certain way the gradient from the top to bottom is actually mirrored on the sides here with the silver top and the bluish bottom yeah. So pretty nice frame here overall, look it’s, i would say it goes for a pass very common. Look here. Nothing too special. One thing you can take note of here at the back is the lenses, so they do stick out a little bit, but it’s only the four rings at the back here. So again, not too big of an issue there. You do retain your headphone jack at the bottom and i think that’s a good point right there and moving on to the front. This is where we get your amoled display so i’m, going to talk a little bit more about all that in the coming minutes.
All right so let’s check out this device right here. We do have a in display fingerprint scanner, which occasionally works very well like how i just showed you, but occasionally it doesn’t work very well, either so it’s kind of a hit and miss kind of situation here, but there you go. We just missed that right. There. Second time fail third time fail. There we go so like i said it is a hit and miss for the in display fingerprint scanner and that’s pretty much how this device looks like you do have a tiny cut out camera at the top left corner. If you can see that so it’s a pretty small one – and i appreciate that with the real me 8 pro all right, so i was saying there’s a couple of things that have downgraded and the first thing i want to talk about that is the selfie camera. At the front, so me personally, i’m, not too big of a selfie fan, so it doesn’t really affect me that much, but if you’re counting the real me 7 pro had a 32 megapixel selfie camera, whereas this has a 16 megapixel selfie camera. So this device is a very straightforward device, i’m going to tell you everything, that’s, pretty much same as the real me 7 pro from the previous generation and we’re, going to start with the yeah let’s just start with the display. So this is an amoled display. It is uh.
What is it again? It is a 6.4 inch amoled display and unfortunately, you still do not get a high refresh rate. So what i mean by that is that this device here in 2021, is still running on 60 hertz, um it’s, not to say the slowest. But if you’re used to something at least 90hz or 120hz – and you can get that at devices that are actually cheaper than this device right here so you’re only getting 60hz – which i think is a – is a missed opportunity here with the realme 8 pro. So you have to live with this panel if you are buying into this device right here. So the second thing i want to mention about is the processor as well so powering this device is a snapdragon 720 g, which was exactly the same as the previous gen. As well no improvements here, it still works. Fine, i mean for a mid range device, you’re getting some decent performance here. Gaming’S. Obviously, you can’t play games on the highest settings, but i could still enjoy my game of mobile legends on this device. Pretty happily not too much of an issue there, but just bear in mind that you’re getting the 720 g and not like the 732, which uh some other devices are using so that’s in terms of the processor moving on. We still have the same slow memory, so it’s still ufs 2.1 here for that 128 gigabytes internal memory.
So, like i said a couple of stuff here that has been remained the same and again. I think it is a miss opportunity, all right so what’s the deal with this device, then what is it really about? Why did uh real me launch this so it’s, particularly due to the main camera? So we have four sensors at the back here and three out of four of them are the same as the previous gen. So there’s, only one major change right here, and that is with the 108 megapixel main sensor. So i’ll talk a little bit about about that. In a couple of minutes uh, we also have the same eight megapixel wide two megapixel depth and two megapixel macro, which um again it is not much too much user. But yes, that 108 megapixel sensor is a pretty good one right here and whether or not you think it’s good enough for you to actually make that purchase. Uh let’s check out a couple of sample photos right, so i’ve taken a couple of photos with the realme 8 pro right here and, as you can see in my gallery, i have lots of shots here, both in the day and night, and one thing i did Notice about this sensor right here, the thing that i really like is that it has kept the temperature levels like the cool or warm kind of levels, uh at a very accurate rate, so notice that, even when the weather wasn’t too good the colors on my pictures Turns out pretty accurate and i could actually see like the real kind of colors that i was seeing with my eyes so that’s one thing that i really like about the camera and in the day.
Another thing i want to talk about. That is the resolution because it is 108 megapixels, so naturally, images turns out pretty crisp and sharp right here on the realme 8 pro. I do need to point out one thing, though, with the camera, and that is the hdr which, to be honest, in my opinion, isn’t really showing too much of shadows. So we still get a couple of dark images here and there but uh. Maybe that could be fixed in a software update all right, so those are the daylight shots, i’m. Moving on to your night mode, okay, this is where it gets pretty interesting, because i kind of like the images coming up from this device right here when taken at night, so images taken at night is really good in terms of the colors once more. The colors are very accurate and you can see a lot of a very nice kind of night mode here: it’s, not the kind that will just brighten the entire environment, but what it does here is creates a very natural looking night image that you can actually see Very clearly so again check out these samples right here and let me know what you think about the sensor of this realme: 8 pro um, so that’s pretty much the main sensor, the 108 megapixels uh. In a nutshell, i think i i kind of like this sensor right here, although it is not the best in the industry right now, but it is something that is very strong for a mid range device like this.
Moving on to the ultra wide the macro and the dev sensor, honestly speaking, it just looks a little bit underwhelming compared to the main sensor. So i didn’t take that much shots, but here is an ultra white shot for you to check out. The resolution is lacking and it is not the clearest, so this is what you can expect in terms of ultra wide, alright. So two more things that i want to mention right here before i close up this video uh. One thing is the battery at the back. Here it is still 4500 mah, so same again to the real me 7 pro, but this time you’re being downgraded in terms of the charging speeds uh. Previously, it was like 65 watts, i think, and now it’s 50 watts, but nevertheless it is still very fast charging, because you can still go from zero to 100 in less than one hour, so that’s not too much of a complaint in my opinion. Lastly, the last thing i want to talk about here is actually the speaker at the bottom, so we still get a single firing speaker right here. It is not a stereo speakers of anything like that. The single firing speaker here sounds a bit echo ish it’s, not the sharpest again, not the crispiest right here, so it’s, an average speaker right there and yeah. Before i go last thing. I almost forgot about that. The haptics on this device guys um.
It is not a good one. The haptics here just feels like a a budget device that you know when you just press on the device right here, the kind of buzzers, the kind of vibrations that it gives it’s, not the short and sharp kind that you would like to expect from a device. But yeah that’s uh in terms of the haptics here so again, this is my very honest review of the realme 8 pro uh, essentially just to wrap this up. Like i said, the main thing here, the main upgrade is that 108 megapixel sensor, which does uh, does a pretty good job for the mid range segment right here, but that’s pretty much it uh with the real me 8 pro all right, guys, uh. Let me know what you think about this device right here.
