Our Verdict On Realme 8 Pro Smartphone

The Realme 8 Pro is a popular Realme smartphone. It’s reasonably priced, but it doesn’t spend a lot of money on specs or, for that matter, attention-getting features.

This design is the phone’s 108-megapixel camera setup, which is built on lenses. So apart from the cameras, though, there isn’t anything to be excited about. While being a conventional mid-ranger, it has advantages and disadvantages. Overall, the handset offers excellent value for money and is a good buy.

Why should you buy a Realme 8 Pro smartphone?

If you are looking for a camera focused experience.

When it comes to cameras, the Realme 8 Pro has a lot of good selections, and the performance is great across the board, if not excellent.

If you want a smartphone that looks good in your hands.

The Realme 8 Pro is undeniably one of the better-looking and styled smartphones in this series, with a decent in-hand experience.

If you need fast charging.

The Realme 8 Pro is one of the fastest charging devices, with a 50W fast charge and a 65W charger in the box, and takes less than 1 hour for a complete charge.

Why you should not buy Realme 8 Pro smartphone?

If you are looking for the best display in the segment.

While the Realme 8 Pro seems to have a good appearance, it raises some little questions and fails the higher refresh rate that some gamers would choose.

2.) If you want the best battery life.

The Realme 8 Pro provides huge ergonomics, but it comes at the price of a smaller battery. It’s enough for one day, but suggest Redmi Note 10 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy M31 smartphone if you want anything that takes more time.

Realme 8 Pro Smartphone Detailed Review

We’ve seen a lot of democratization in the mobile domain in the last year or so, with models in the lower price ranges now packing some high-end hardware and even embracing innovations that were traditionally only available on high-end phones. The Realme 8 Pro is the most recent addition to this series.

This Realme smartphone, which operates in the sub-Rs 20,000 segments, offers a lot to like. Its quad-camera setup, which is housed within a square-shaped module, is, however, the key reason for its existence.

It’s a 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM2 camera, which has previously appeared on flagships and, more recently, one or two mid-range phones, including the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

We’ve owned the Realme 8 Pro for a few days now, and we’ve had the opportunity to closely test the phone’s cameras, as well as compared the findings to what seems to be its main competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro Max. Although, before we get into the cameras, it’s important to note that the Realme 8 Pro is way more than just a camera phone.

Must Read:-


The Realme 7 Pro was one of our strongest smartphones, successor to the Realme 8 Pro unveiled last year. Such a way as the Realme 8 Pro was last, the Super AMOLED display remains among the cheapest smartphones.

The Realme 8 Pro uses a modified 108MP sensor from the 64MP in the preceding version. But despite having a different camera, Realme has only one 60Hz on screen, it moves closer to Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

However, despite this, features that are not common to this smartphone segment are still implemented. The mobile does not have 5G, but this does not mean that people lose a lot.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor ensures that the smartphone performs profanity in any task, whether it is gaming, photographing, or using multiple heavy applications.

The phone also has a good design and monitor, as well as a strong mid-range processor. So let’s get started with our Realme 8 Pro review to see if it’s a phone worth your pocket.

Realme 8 Pro Mobile Design Review in Detailed

Realme 8 pro: images, photos, Processor, Display, Camera, Battery, Expected Launch Date in India

Realme seems to have given considerable consideration to the design details of the Realme 8 Pro, and one of the most important differences in the form factor of the smartphone this time is that it is almost 0.6mm thinner than the Realme 7 Pro. Not only has the thickness been reduced, but the Realme 8 Pro now weighs 176 grams, 6 grams less than its predecessor.

But for the portion that reads ‘Dare to Leap,’ which has a glossy finish, the Realme 8 Pro is one of the few smartphones with an effective matte finish on the back panel that does not accumulate fingerprints at all.

Since it is relatively slim compared to other smartphones, the mobile has a very comfortable in-hand feel. And the metal side frame, which looks to be concave rather than convex, contributes to the effect.


The quad-camera module on the back panel has been redesigned by Realme to now be in a square shape, which seems to fit in with the overall aesthetics. In the Infinite Blue color version, we got transitions from a darker hue at the bottom to a brighter hue when it approaches the peak.

Although it appears that the camera lens covers can be scratched if the handset is placed on its back, the lenses seem to be protected by a metal frame. The cameras have two degrees of contouring, which seems to be part of the smartphone’s style.

The microphone inlet is located on the top panel of the Realme 8 Pro, while the dual-SIM slot is installed on the left-hand panel. The volume rocker is placed on the device’s right-hand side, with the control button under it, and the 3.5mm jack, two microphone inlets, Type-C port, and speaker grille are located on the device’s bottom panel, in this order from left to right.

The Realme 8 Pro, unlike some of its competitors, does not have a stereo audio solution, and when playing games or viewing videos without headphones, the speaker grille on the bottom is the only one in use. Though I am happy that Realme did not eliminate the 3.5mm jack, its placement is less than suitable for gamers.

The Realme 8 Pro has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a special material that the company says improves brightness levels. The screen is capable of viewing textures at a resolution of Full HD+. The screen does not allow high refresh rates and runs at 60Hz, but it does support a touch sampling rate of up to 180Hz for better responsiveness.

Aside from that, the device has a DC-like dimming feature and an Eye Safety Mode that helps to minimize eye fatigue. Realme also says that the 8 Pro has a sunlight mode with a brightness of up to 1000 nits to ensure that the screen is clear even in bright sunlight.

Although this is partially accurate, we discovered that the display does not exceed the company’s estimated peak brightness thresholds. The screen on the Realme 8 Pro achieved a peak luminance of 631 nits in our measurements, while the brightness at the lower end was 3 nits.

It should be remembered, however, that these reported figures are for average visibility around the screen, not for individual locations on the monitor while viewing HDR content for a brief period of time.

While most smartphones have this feature, it was a chance for Realme to stand out, and it seems that they mismanaged it. Daily users need not be disturbed by this, but gamers will note the difference. The selfie camera is placed in a punch hole on the top left of the screen, which does not seem to affect the visuals.

The display, on the other hand, has superior visibility, allowing for clear vision in the light sources. The OSIE effect guarantees clear, updated visuals that normally don’t miss the target.

However, one thing I’ve noticed is that it has a difficult time adjusting the brightness under different lighting conditions. Either it takes a long time to adapt or it just gives up and remains too light or dark.

Another thing I discovered by mistake is that when the phone is picked up and the fingerprint sensor icon shows up on the dark screen, the screen seems to flicker ever so slightly.

In bright light, this flicker is hardly visible, but in a dark space, it is easily visible. Screen flickers are not a positive indicator for AMOLED screens, and they seem to persist regardless of device settings.


Although the AMOLED panel is excellent, the absence of a high refresh rate diverts attention from it.

Realme 8 Pro Camera Review in Detailed

Realme 8 Pro 108MP camera review, quality, sensor, image

The Realme 8 Pro’s cameras have been promoted as the device’s best tool. Although the Realme 8 Pro’s camera efficiency isn’t the best in the class, we have to admit that it has a lot of shooting modes and filters to choose from.

The primary camera lens on the Realme 8 Pro’s rear quad-camera configuration is a 108MP sensor that captures images with an effective resolution of 12,000 x 9,000 but a true resolution of 9,280 x 6,944. It has a 1/1.52-inch sensor resolution and is a Samsung ISOCELL HM2. An Ultra Macro lens that shoots at a 4cm distance, a 119-degree wide-angle mount, and a black and white portrait lens are among the other three cameras.

Realme implements 9-in-1 pixel binning processing, as well as a Smart-ISO layer, to achieve ISO ranges that are typically unreachable. The primary camera provided acceptable photographs that are remarkably true to color but might benefit from a little further temperature adjustment.

The standard camera mode allows you to zoom in up to 5 times, which seems to grab a lot of information. The 108MP mode is unique in that it does not allow users to zoom in. However, we found that when we took an image with 5x zoom in default camera mode, it captured more data than when we captured an image with 108MP mode.

The Realme 8 Pro has a Super-Nightscape mode that, according to the company, captures more data than normal. Users may choose whether to set the parameters themselves with Pro or let the phone do it with AI mode in Night Mode.

This produces some excellent night shots that are clear, noise-free, and also catch some small details. The Starry Night mode, which is a little difficult to perform without a tripod, is another new mode.

This mode almost always involves the user holding the camera steady for 4 minutes, during which time the Realme 8 Pro performs its tasks. However, the end result does not seem to be as amazing as advertised.

Another latest feature is the Tilt-Shift mode, which appears to reverse engineer stuff. In the short time, I’ve been testing the smartphone, I haven’t been able to get satisfying performance for this feature.


The Portrait mode on the Realme 8 Pro cameras proves to be the spotlight, both in Night mode and in bright light. The mobile produces an impressive bokeh effect that is neither too strong nor too weak.

The 16MP Sony IMX 471 selfie camera on the Realme 8 Pro takes clear images in both bokeh and standard modes. It comes with so many filters and features that will appeal to anyone that needs them.

In terms of recording, the Realme 8 Pro does a decent job of image stabilization with the Ultra-Stead mode, which comes in handy while making videos while driving, for example.

Dual-video mode seems to be underutilized. In photographs, the bokeh effect is less impressive than in still images because the shapes seem to drift and can’t keep up with the actual subject.

Realme 8 pro Performance Review in Detail

Realme 8 Pro Performance test image, launch date in india

The Realme 8 Pro is packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, which appears to be effective for the device. It is capable of performing the majority of challenges thrown at it and does not falter under pressure.


The model we tested had 8GB of RAM and 128GB of memory. And with a game running in the background, we had no problems loading heavy applications one after the other.

On the Realme 8 Pro, we used the maximum settings to play Willing to pay a higher Impact and Call of Duty: Mobile. Even after 30 minutes of gaming, it didn’t seem to generate any heat, and the handset was somewhat comfortable to hold.

In terms of gaming performance, Call of Duty: Mobile’s extreme action sequences were relatively smooth, but there were a few frame drops here and there that were usually impossible to detect to the untrained eye. When playing both games, the Realme 8 Pro’s FPS stayed mostly between 40 and 50.

When it comes to keeping track of the RAM usage and the current FPS of the smartphone, Game Space is quite capable. In India, Wi-Fi and cellular reception are generally poor, but the phone seemed to do its best.

Realme 8 Pro Smartphone Software

The Realme 8 Pro comes pre-installed with Realme UI 2.0, which is based on Android 11. Realme smartphones, unlike their main opponent, Xiaomi, do not show advertisements. However, there seems to be a lot of bloatware from Realme, which can be uninstalled if necessary.


Realme also mentioned that the software’s selling point is its customization, which users can do with new Dark Mode types, Global theme colours, symbol customizations, and seamless fonts, among other items.

The Realme UI 2.0 is a lightweight interface for Android that appears to have useful customizations. However, it is not light, and there are better third-party options available, which Realme recommends you explore.

Realme 8 Pro Mobile Phone Battery

The Realme 8 Pro’s battery is one of the device’s best qualities. It has a 4,500mAh battery with 50W quick charge capability. The fact that the business has a 65W adapter in the box is a lovely surprise.

The mobile lasts a day of extreme use (over 8 hours of screen time), as well as light use (social media, playing and watching videos, using the app, playing games, and actually idling the display). This outperforms the majority of other smartphones with comparable battery capacities. The number is closer to 6 hours for more normal use.

Must Read:-


And, with light use, the handset will last up to two days, equating to 5 hours of screen time. The handset takes a long time to charge and takes about 50 minutes to completely charge from a 1% battery.

For those that need a smartphone with longer battery life, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is a better option.

Our Conclusion On Realme 8 Pro Smartphone

The Realme 8 Pro is, without a doubt, a standard Realme smartphone. It’s reasonably priced, but it doesn’t spend a lot of money on specs or, for that matter, attention-getting features.

All of them are the 108-megapixel camera on the rear of the iPhone 8 Pro. While some can dismiss the primary lens’s high megapixel count as a stunt, its effects cannot.

Especially in the daytime, when this lens is capable of capturing some extremely detailed pictures. The only issue is that the other lenses on the device do not meet these high standards of consistency.


Aside from that, the Realme 8 Pro is a normal mid-ranger with strengths and weaknesses. However, there’s no doubt that the Realme 8 Pro is an excellent value for money.
