Here but if you’ve already seen that video – and you still want to know more about its little brother – then maybe this one’s for you now there are a couple of key differences between these two phones, but will the realme 8 be enough to be better than the Pro variant, let’s check out some more design wise. The real me 8 shares a very close resemblance to its pro counterpart, but, unlike its sibling, this one achieves a glossy plastic finish with the same metallic, looking frame, keeping everything all together and, of course, we also have that dare to leave tagline here as well. Despite the whole rear panel being smooth to the touch, the bolt text complements this by being a little bit more reflective just to give it an eye catching appearance again. This could be a little tacky to some people, but that can be easily fixed by slapping the included case, not to mention add more protection. That’S, not the only highlight of this area anyway, since you’ll still be greeted by four large circles that represent your quad rear camera. Module on the left is a triple card tray for two nano sized sim cards and a micro sd card with expandable storage. Up to one terabyte, while on the right are the volume keys and the power slash lock button you’ll find nothing at the top except the secondary microphone and underneath is a 3.5 millimeter audio jack, the main microphone, a usb type c port and a single bottom firing.
Loudspeaker checking out the display we’re getting a 6.4 inch super amoled panel, with full hd plus resolution, the same screen that you’ll be getting with the pro it has a pixel density of about 411 pixels per inch and maxes out at a thousand nits as well. Making this a no brainer to use even under the sun, we are missing the 90 hertz refresh rate found in its predecessor, but we do get a touch sampling rate of 180 hertz, meaning the screen is very responsive, perfect for some fast paced competitive gaming. There is a little bit of a chin, though, but shouldn’t be much of an issue since the rest of the bezels are quite thin. The display settings allow you to choose between a cool default and warm look and comes with osei visual effect, so everything is generally nice and vibrant and if you look at the top there’s a punch hole on the screen’s left corner housing, the front shooter. As for software, it runs on android 11 out of the box, with real miui skinned. On top and out of 128 gigabytes of storage, there seems to be 111 gigabytes of usable space left, which is still a good amount of storage. So basically, loading this with a bunch of apps and games will have no problem, and since we do get microsd card support with up to one terabytes of storage, we’ll have more things to be able to store, like multimedia files, you’ll be getting some signature.
Realme apps such as soul, loop, real me, link, hey fun, facebook and lazada and, of course, the usual apps from google, like youtube, gmail, drive photos and like, of course, we’re also going to be getting a dedicated dark mode that can be toggled on in the settings. As well as eye care mode to lessen eye strains during the evening now, underneath the hood instead of the qualcomm snapdragon processor we’re, getting a mediatek helio g95 cpu paired with a mali g76 mc4 gpu. This is actually also the same exact chipset found on the real d7, which is powered by two cortex a76 cores clocked at 2.05 gigahertz and six cortex a55 course clocked at 2, gigahertz taking it up for some gaming we’re gon na fire up some of the usuals Checking call of duty mobile first, the graphics and frame rate setting will be set to high by default and as smooth as it already is. Both can still be bumped up to very high and even have the frame rate maxed out so no problems here. Next up is pubg mobile and taking a quick look at the settings, it looks like we’re at hd graphics, with the frame rate set to high as well and is the max. This is going to be able to handle, although far from being able to handle the highest quality, it’s still very much playable and does not stutter and hang, which is more important. Our third game on the list is mobile.
Legends bang. Bang no surprise that this can run very smoothly even with raised settings. It plays at high by default, with shadows off and hd plus hdr set to on with optimized frames, enabled it feels like we’re running at 60fps and doesn’t feel too much different from using a higher spec device and, last but not least, is gentian impact, which is Probably one of the hardest games to run on android. Currently, surprisingly, we were able to achieve medium settings by default and managed to get some good action out of this. This gave slightly better results compared to the pro which ran on low out of the box. You can even play a bit around with the settings to make gameplay smoother as well, even if it does say you’re going past your threshold. If you’re still curious here are some benchmark scores for you to check out. The realme 8 supports wi fi 5 bluetooth, 5.1. Fm radio and sat nav systems, but apart from the lack of 5g we’re, also missing nfc capabilities. So if you often use this feature, just keep that in mind and of course, as for security, we’re, getting an in display fingerprint scanner along with face unlock powering. Everything is a 5 000 milliamp hour capacity battery, which is slightly larger compared to the pro and on average, is more than enough to last throughout the day, just as long as you’re, not the type to game for hours on end.
In our standard video loop test, which entails a 1080p video playing at 50 brightness and 50 volume, it gave us an impressive 23 hours and ‘ minutes, which is just 20 minutes shy from a full 24 hours and as for charging, the realme 8 comes with a 30 watt dark charger out of the box and takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach from zero to 100 percent. The realme 8 comes with a quad camera, consisting of a 64 megapixel main lens, an 8 megapixel ultra wide, a 2 megapixel macro and another 2 megapixels for depth. Sensing, while at the front, is a 16 megapixel selfie shooter. Now, although the realme 8 pro does boast a larger rear shooter that doesn’t mean a 64 megapixel camera isn’t, just as good, we were able to get great photos during daylight and still manage to get a good amount of detail without too much noise. The color reproduction is alright and is possible to still get that natural look. Turning ai color enhancement on does help in some situations, but sometimes it tends to look a little bit oversaturated, especially when it comes to nature and plants, but it’s nice to see that portrait mode does work like a charm with decent subject, background separation we also get This purplish tint in some photos, but thankfully it doesn’t occur all the time. The realme 8 is also capable of up to 10 times digital zoom and although it’s pretty blurry at least it still gets the job done when it comes to night mode.
You’Ll get a mixed set of results, depending on how much light is available for the camera to use. So if you’re in a spot with almost no source of light, then it won’t be making much difference, except maybe make things a little bit sharper with some added contrast. But if you are in a place with a fair amount of lighting like this shot of the scooter, that’s nearby a lamppost, it does make a notable difference when it comes to selfies, beauty features will be switched on by default and, frankly, we just wish it was. The other way around, nevertheless, shots were still fairly decent with that 16 megapixel shooter. So no complaints here. Okay, now that we’ve checked out some sample photos let’s see how video recording holds up okay. So this is the realme 8 recording at 1080p at 60 frames per. Second, with ultra stabilization, turned on now we’re just going to be doing a quick walk around around the rooftop and let’s. Just do some quick jogging as well pan to the left turn to the right. What do you guys think? Okay, so right now, we’re recording the realme 8 at a resolution of 4k and with this you’re going to be losing a couple of things, the first being that ultra stabilization feature, and the second is the 60 frames per second option. But even though detail is still pretty good and the colors are looking quite nice, what do you guys think alright? So now we have the realme 8’s front, camera recording at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 30 frames per second, and as you can see, we also have some video stabilization here as well.
So let’s just give this a quick jogging test jump up and down pan to the left pan to the right how’d that look now as for how much it costs the realme 8 is priced at 13, 990 pesos and is available in all real me stores nationwide. As well as on e commerce sites such as lazada for 3000, pesos less does this seem like a more bang for buck offer.
