Story Highlights
  • 108MP Rear Camera
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G Chipset
  • 50W Fast charging support
  • Smooth Performance
  • SUPER AMOLED Excellent display
  • Design is up to the mark

Six months after the launch of the Realme 7 Series, the brand is now launching the Realme 8 Series. Realme 8 Pro comes with a slight upgrade than the previous one.

This version goal is quite literally to make a bold statement and it is attached behind the company’s “Dear to Leap” caption. New types of branding will attract mixed feelings from buyers.

Though it has a competitive price tag, there’s no harm to use it and move on. If we try to speak about this phone, the spec sheet will remind you about the Realme 7 Pro as it is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. A major upgrade is that the Realme 8 Pro comes with a 108MP camera, more new software, and design.

We’ve been dealing with Realme 8 Pro for some time and we will now try to discuss Realme 8 Pro review in detail according to our experience. So, let’s dig out everything.

Pros and Cons for Realme 8 Pro:

Pros ✅ Cons ❌
  • ✔️ AMOLED screen with better brightness quality, HDR10, and a tiny punch-hole.
  • ✔️ Battery life is excellent, and charging is fast.
  • ✔️ Most games run smoothly.
  • ✔️ In broad daylight, the picture and video quality are excellent.
  • ✔️ The 3x (almost) lossless zoom is one of our favorites.
  • ✔️ The combination of Android 11 and the Realme 2.0 UI is stunning.
  • ✔️ FM radio, NFC, 3.5mm jack, tri-card slot with standalone microSD, 3.5mm jack
  • 👎 There is no ingress defense at all.
  • 👎 The screen is set to 60Hz.
  • 👎 Chip is getting old.
  • 👎 When photographing at night, the main camera moves slowly.

Design:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Realme 8 Pro is a testament to that. I can’t really say, I’m a fan of the “bold” design choices on the back of the phone. The unresolved brand slogan is a bit too loud and unnecessary for my taste.

Speaking to Realme, I was told that the language of design has proven to be very popular for the brand. So, you know, your mileage can be different.

The rest of the phone ends in a matte gradient that is of course dazzling and shifted from light to blue shades. The finish has a very subtle effect that almost shines in direct sunlight. It’s rather bringing.

Overall, I appreciate the choice of gradient and colors, but the brand slogan on the back just doesn’t work for me.

The other distinctive element in the back is the camera island. The four-centered cameras boast a raised rectangular module. While picking up the phone, I saw myself endlessly pointing my finger at my camera, and the fingerprint of this page smeared through the entire lens – which is not ideal.

Display:

The Realme 8 Pro comes with a 6.40-inch AMOLED display with a 6040 Hz refresh rate. As I said, we have the Redmi Note 10 Pro with a 120Hz AMOLED display, I’m comparing, just releasing it.

The phone also has 1000 night brightness which will help you when you use this phone in sunlight. So if you are a person who travels a lot then, there will be no problem while watching movies or doing some work.

Also, Realme has used good quality AMOLED displays. However, Realme did not say what kind of glass they used to preserve the gorilla glass on the front. But there is no information in the glass version.

Now if I flip the phone back and forth, it has a plastic back and a plastic frame. It is a huge downside to this device. I know you will use it most of the time but still, if you hold the phone it doesn’t give a premium vibe, it seems cheap.

How do I feel about display quality? There is no doubt that the display quality is great. The brightness is a bit lower compared to the Redmi Note 10 Pro, also, the Realme 8 Pro does not have a 120Hz refresh rate.

Performance:

I can’t say much about the performance because Realme used the same Snapdragon 720G that is available in Realme 6 Pro, 7 Pro, and now Realme 8 Pro. If you own any of these smartphones or the Redmi Note 9 series, you know how the performance will be.

For those who don’t know, you can play COD Mobile or PUBG Mobile without any problem but the gaming experience. It will not be top-notch. So if you are a casual user and if you don’t play games too much then this might be the best phone. But if you are a hard gamer then I would say, just go with Realm Narzo 30 Pro or Redmi Note 10 Pro at most. Realme 8 Pro runs on Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11 just like Redmi phones.

Overall, this is disappointing for those who have been waiting for the Realm 8 Pro. From my point of view, I am not offering Realme 8 Pro. Because there are more priced phones with more specifications in the lower price tag.

Memory

It is incompatible with Realme features and is not much different from realme7 Pro (review). realme8 Pro still has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with full HD + resolution and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

It is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor with unchanged RAM. Its storage combinations are 6 or 8 GB LPDDR 4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. The battery capacity is also equal to 4,500mAh, but the charging speed is limited to 50W, and realme7 Pro can charge up to 65W.

Battery

The Realme 8 Pro has a 4,500mAh battery with 50W fast charging support. It has bundled the 65W charger in the box. Now if you’re wondering, why does it feel different so why is it?

The Realme 7 Pro had 65W fast charging support and the Realme 8 Pro has 50W, you get it, they downgraded.
Talking about battery life, the phone will run one day. For example, if you charge the phone at 9 a.m., you have to charge this phone again between 5 and 6 o’clock. Also, if you are a heavy user, you may need to charge Realm 8 Pro before 5 pm. It will depend on how much you use the phone.

Camera:

I think you have to sit down because the phone has some big numbers. Don’t have a heart attack, the Realm 8 Pro comes with a 108MP quad-camera setup with an 8MP Ultra-Wide, 2MP macro sensor, and 2MP depth sensor. The phone can also shoot video with rear cameras at 4k @ 30fps, which isn’t great.

Price of Realme 8 Pro in Bangladesh:

Realme8 Pro price is 27,990 BDT for the base variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It comes in three color options: endless blue, endless black, and yellow. The latter has glow-in-the-dark darkness that has now become an unusual design element.

Final thoughts:

We did not find Realme 8 different from its predecessor, and Realme 8 Pro is not a big step. The list of brief features is much longer than the list of add-ons in Realme 8Pro. Yes, the phone is cheaper than the Realme7 Pro, but I still don’t think it’s worth the money.

Realme7 Pro is a better option for most people than Realme 8 Pro because you get faster charging, stereo speakers, and overall camera performance, and you can get it for a good price when it goes on sale.
