Not long ago, I reviewed the Realme C21 which came out to be one of the best entry-level smartphones. This time around, I got my hands into the Realme 8. During my time with the device, I found it to be an exceptionally good mid-range phone that’s worth the value. Well, this is the Realme 8 Review and let me share my experience with you.

|Good Performance||Heats a bit while gaming|
|Good Display||Too much fingerprint friendly rear panel|

Realme 8 Review
Amazing Display & Cyperpunk Design
Trust me on this, you will love the display of this device. This FHD+ Super AMOLED panel not just delivers brilliant and vivid colors but also boasts 60Hz Refresh Rate. Plus, if you turn on the Smooth Scrolling option from the realme Lab option in Settings, the Refresh Rate of the display gets an additional boost.
This display gives alluring gaming and YouTube video watching experience. Moreover, scrolling through social media news feeds or apps feels super smooth and satisfying. Videos on YouTube are vivid, crystal clear, and filled with clarity and detail. There’s nothing more to ask more from a display.
Nontheless, the display is an Always-On display and houses a super fast In-display fingerprint sensor, as well as the top, left corner confined punch-hole. The punch-hole blends in good with apps, games, and videos. Therefore, it never disturbed me when I was consuming some contents from the device. Also, there’s no interpreting during playing games.
Now let’s talk about the design, I used the Cyberpunk Silver color finished. The way it reflects vibrant light is amusing. Its thickness is 7.9mm and has a weight of 177g. So, it becomes comfortable to hold in hand and feels very slim. As soon as you hold it to your hand, you will feel the slim thickness and the finishing level I’m talking about.
However, the rear panel is very much finger-print dent-friendly. You will want to use a transparent cover that comes in the box to stay away from these dents. Overall, the display and the design of the Realme 8 is flagship killer-like.
Dynamic 64MP AI Quad Rear Camera
The camera performance of this device is just awesome. All are the benefits of having a 64MP AI Quad Camera Setup. The 64MP Mode snaps some crystal clear images filled with detail whilst the Normal Mode isn’t any different. However, you can Zoom in more in the photos snapped with 64MP Mode.
Plus, if you Turn on the AI Scene Detection, the AI identifies the Scene and optimizes accordingly for extra good results. Nevertheless, The Pro Expert Mode snaps some quality images but the size of the image increases extensively. This is all because of the details it confines in the image.
The 12MP Ultra-Wide Angle Lens goes super wide and captures some really good wide shots with detail. But, at some images, I found colors being a bit dull and get a bit unsaturated. The 2MP Macro Sensor shoots amazing closeups with some good details and vivid colors. The same goes for the 2MP Depth Field Sensor that soots a really good Portrait with nice edge blurring.
Portraits are filled with vividness and beauty. Coming to the Night Mode, Night Mages have better sharpness and color correction. When I shot with Normal Modes, the images come out blown out with colors and lights. Whereas, when I used the Night Mode, everything was in place with a good detail level.
Nontheless, the 16 MP Sony IMX471 Front Camera also shoots some seriously good selfies. Skins are nicely whitened and softened while the natural details are still preserved. So, every selfie came out very beautiful during this Realme 8 Review. Video recorded with it are also good
When I recorded a video with an amazing 64MP AI Quad Rear Camera setup, I was satisfied with every video. 1080p recorded videos at 60fps felt very stable even when I moved the device at a fast pace. However, you can only shoot Ultra Wide Videos when at 1080p at 30fps.
Whilst recording 4K videos, I felt the videos were very clear and detailed but at the same time, I felt a bit off with the stabilization. In 1080p at 60fs, videos have good colors and good stabilization. If you are recording videos with this device, I recommend you to shoot videos in 1080p at 60fps.

The performance of the device is incredible. The gaming experience is also exceptional. Might be because of the powerful MediaTek Helio G95 chipset that combines with a 2.05GHz OCta-core processor. However, the device feels like heating after some time of gaming. But the temperature never rises up from there as the Copper Liquid Cooling System comes in.
Well, I played PUBG in HD Graphics with Hight Frame Rate settings, and the game with smooth. There was never lag or sort of anything. Also, I played PES 2021 a lot and this game is a graphics and power-hungry game. Even this game also operated smoothly. The speakers have some good sound that gives extra pleasure while gaming.
I used the 6GB RAM variant but you can go all way up to the 8GB RAM option if you want to. As for storage, it’s the same as 128GB. Now let’s talk about software. The Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 gives a very stock-like experience. However, there are lots of bloatware pre-installed.
Nontheless, in the About section in Setting, you can go in RAM and expand the RAM virtually up to 5GB. Also, you have other useful stuff like Game Space, Phone Manager, and all. Game Space automatically detects games and boosts when started. Whereas, the Phone Manager app can help you clean useless cache and optimize your device in different manners.
Ultra Capacity 5000mAh Battery
The device never went out of juice during my test. Might be because of the 5000mAh battery integration. I played PUBG for 1 hour straight with 12 Percent of juice. That’s exactly, 8 hours of straight PUBG gaming with 96 Percent of juice. And that is also in HD Graphics with High Frame Rate settings in PUBG.
When it comes to charging, the device support 30W Dart Charging. The Realme 8’s 5000mAh battery got 46 Percent juice in just 30 mins of charging. That’s approximately 92 Percent charge in just 1 hour. Also, because of the 5 Levels of Intelligent Chip Protection, charging felt always safe and the device never heated while charging.
Moreover, you can optimize the performance by using the Battery section in Settings that comes with Different Battery Modes and Battery Saving options. You can kill apps, stop their background power consuming and much more. Overall, I was impressed by the Battery performance of this device.

What’s In The Box
The box is very Realme like because of its Yellow and Back style. As soon you open the box, you will another small rectangular thin box with Manuals, Transparent cover, and SIM Ejector tool within it.
After that, you get the very device in a plastic cover. Beneath it is where you’ll find a 30W Dart Charging Adapter as well as a USB Type-C cable. All accessories are white in color and are of very good quality. Even their build quality feels very solid while holding it.
