Realme 8 Pro review

OhNom, 29 Mar 2021Yes of course, but the king reduced it from 65W to 50W when... moreIt's not a huge drop though. You're still gonna get super fast charging with 50w !

It's strange that the Realme 8 Pro got a higher score with Antutu with a weaker chip (720g) than the Poco X3 NFC did with a more powerful chip (732g) ! Maybe Realme were able to optimize their software better to take advantage of the Snapdragon 720g so it could outperform the more powerful 732g ?

Where is the option of slow-motion(960fps)? I did not find it...

MobileMann21, 08 Apr 2021iqoo3 is if you are into speed and ok with 4G its a very go... moreYeah.. No 5g for now.

iqoo3 is if you are into speed and ok with 4G its a very good choice , cameras are ok , if you want gaming go for it. 24k is enticing , N10Pro i did suggest if you have 15k as you barely miss much from N10PMax.

BTW , you meant no 5G for now , right.

MobileMann21, 08 Apr 2021@suraj grover - for 2nd handset - give you few choices - ... moreNo 4g for me at least now.
Upto 15k, i thought about redmi note 10 pro.
On the other hand iqooo 3 is now at 24k, interesting choice.

@suraj grover - for 2nd handset - give you few choices -

If you want 5g full support go with Moto G5g - camera is poor but it has 11 band full 5g Support ( Only one in mdrange with this support ) , IPS LCD

If you want UI experience , haptic feedback , good video voice recording go with OPNord 256GB

If you want allrounder and ok with 4g go with N10PMax. You will not get full fast charging but rest is ok.

If you want in Cheap go with Note10P. or POCO M2 Pro ( 11k etc budget ).

I will not sugest realme as it has 4 band 5g support (x7) , & max 7 band 5G support (X7 Pro ) , but x7 pro has dual 5g 7band support so if you have nords budget you can look at x7pro but its 128GB only inbuilt.

5G Phones have step treatment in India , OnePlus 9 has only 2 Band 5G support will foreign have 11 Band 5G support with no wireless charging.

MobileMann21, 07 Apr 2021Presently all manufacturers are giving step treatment to 5g... moreHahaha.. True that! I am looking for a second handset, comparing it to 6 pro makes most others look ridiculous. Confused.

Presently all manufacturers are giving step treatment to 5g handsets , want 5g settle for inferior camers ( see mostly all 48 or inferior 64mp ) , whereas all older chipsets 720G , 732G gets 108mp. Want DImensity 800u settle for 48mp with 5G

MobileMann21, 07 Apr 2021Hahaha .. yes Realme x7 5g is just for 5g , i am not satis... moreYes. The so called "democratizing 5g" fell flat again.

Hahaha .. yes Realme x7 5g is just for 5g , i am not satisfied with inbuilt 128GB , you need atleast 256GB in this day. X7 is 7 Pro misus SD Card, & Slightly inferior primary cam. they have built for the niche 5G Public. Afterall in India they are saying 5G only after 2022. The only 5G band at recent March '21 auction was unsold. So you know the status.

MobileMann21, 06 Apr 2021Actually we are missing main point , i believe Realme wants... moreAnd we ll completely ignore X7 5G which is about the same or even less?

Actually we are missing main point , i believe Realme wants everyone to purchase either of the 3 -

1. realme 7 pro - if u want stereo , oled , 65W , sony 64mp sensor etc etc etc. best of all features
2. realme 6 pro if u are for versatile cams. & HRR
3. Realme 8 pro - middle ground - 50w , 108mp sam. sensor with good 3x 12mp shots , oled.

So the choice is for people = 7 pro is more expensive then 8 pro because of that stereo etc. etc.

The Realme 8 Series took nose dive because of -

1. Note10PMax having 120Hz. Oled vs 60Hz Oled. , 8 Pro has slightly dimmer screen in nits brightness , its marginally smaller & its SRR is low ( High SRR = better / new tech. ) & you know in midrange that difference = massacre.

2. 8mp UWIde of 10PMax is superior (SonyvsGCore) , images , detail level , infact your 6 pro & 7 Pro has better uWide vs 8Pro. , The macro cam. difference is huge - 2mpvs5mp.

3. ONLY diff. superior 3x zoom , 50w & Ui (vs Mi ui only) , rest all you will look at N10ProMax , now they say xiaomi needs case as its mobiles are fragile.

For So much why look at 8 Pro , provided you are sold on RM. , also i mentioned 12mp of RN10PMax kills 8Pro , ( Most users will click in 12MP ) , also NMode is below 6 , 7 pro , ( f/1.8 vs f/1.9 maybe?) , this leads to N10PMax leading in few areas in night mode!! Also it does not have CallRecording ( Both dont have but if 8pro had it would have been positive ).

MobileMann21, 06 Apr 2021They will afterall its class leading 1/1" BIG Sam. S... moreThose middle range devices flashing 108mp are mostly gimmicks. They know it, we know it. Hence, realme 8 series took a nose dive right down to the bottom.

They will afterall its class leading 1/1" BIG Sam. Sensor , its very close to 1" DSLR now , so quality will be there with 5x - 6x zoom , 1/2" UWIde , Specs are superb , hope it launches worldwide.
Instead of 1/1.52" would have loved 1/1/33" Sensor 108mp on 8 pro & N10ProMax.

MobileMann21, 05 Apr 2021I was talking in reference to samsung s21 - s21 ultra , the... moreAhaa.. Yes.. Dxo is raving for Mi..

I was talking in reference to samsung s21 - s21 ultra , they have excellent cams ( Now its Mi Note 11 ultra ).

No samsung s8 is expected to be defeated by todays upper midrangers.

MobileMann, 05 Apr 2021Suraj Grover - We should compare apples to apples - Samsung... moreSo, yesteryear flagship cameras are supposed to beat now a days mid rangers or even upper midrangers?
