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?

Suraj Grover - We should compare apples to apples - Samsung S8 is/was a good camera and relevant even today , Samsung s21 series all have good cameras , but in that samsung s21 ultra is best.

MobileMann, 03 Apr 2021@Suraj Grover - No , thats just to update members here. ... moreHahaha..more than half of what is provided has to meet set conditions in order to work smoothly.
My father's s8 has a better camera than what is being pushed today in the name of 48/108 binned images.

@Suraj Grover - No , thats just to update members here.

Anyways Slo-Mo has its own issues , it needs proper sunlight / light to work well & mostly useful outdoor.

MobileMann, 02 Apr 2021Update Guys , i think realme has introduced 240fps SLo-mo i... more.... And yawn...
Because everyone wants to shoot slow mo all the time?

Update Guys , i think realme has introduced 240fps SLo-mo in latest update , as i said in my earlier post.

[deleted post]I know right? For me Realme 7 Pro is a better deal. It even more powerful.
You can view the full durability test of it from youtuber called "CNTechRoom" from india.
It also had stereo speakers compared to 8 pro which is only single bottom firing speaker. And just loud is not enough. You will lose the stereo effects.
The camera even it's has higher 108 mega pixel, is not good enough i think. I heard someone said it has gen 2 sensor from last year made by samsung. And i m o the 64 mp sony imx682 is already very Good Enough. Because "good" cameras is mainly produced by Sony in fact even samsung did use sony camera for their Flagship.
Or you can just buy" a camera" if big mp is what you want.
For me, this 108mp battle camera phone is ridiculous.
What else next 6 month 200mp? 512mp? Lol.
Smartphones really turned to a camera overtime.

Looks good

Jayeash - don't compare it with S21 as both are worlds apart (Camera) , S21 has best night mode in the market.

@theacidbat - Realme 8 pro has crappy Micro cam. thats why i said UWide & Macro go for Note10ProMax.
There is hope to improve night mode , right now its close to but superior to Note10PM , but loses out to 7 pro & 8 Pro. ( My views , but Purist might rate 8 Pro for its real life dimmer photos ).There is news Realme with introduce 240FPS SLo-Mo ( Right now only 120fps slomo possible ) , so some updates are expected.

Jayaesh - I just answered your question , 8 Pro is not a bad buy , but is not compelling because of 120HzOLED on Note10PM , but yes Realme 8 Pro has good built quality , Redmi Phones are fragile (Cost Cutting) & meant to be used with Case , else it will...

Certified Gamer, 30 Mar 2021Yes the Dare To Leap is craphave u use it can u tell a 120 hez from 60? kids just write crap from the comfort of a crapping phone

Thanks Suraj n MobileMann ,so I have gone ahead and ordered 8Pro, once it arrives I will keep u guys posted n do a comprehensive camera comparison with S21 , I know Apple n Oranges but it will be fun nevertheless, If I don't like it I will not spare the phone, I am not the bloke who defends his purchases, Case in point : My LG CX which I criticize in every forum n incur the wrath of LG Oled fanboys 😜

See u guys in a few days...peace out.

MobileMann, 31 Mar 2021@Jayeash - Yes , spend some time comparing & also seen ... moreYes! Amen to that!

  • AnonD-131754

MobileMann, 31 Mar 2021@Suraj - Yes you opened Pandoras Box - Take my word - Realm... moreAbsolutely right! You said what i felt all along!
I am glad i bought this early on, not realizing it ll be one off from realme.
I agree with you 100%, they deliberately suppressed 6 pro. Even though they are available in some quantity on flipkart, you are again bang on correct that it wont be available in the future.

@Suraj - Yes you opened Pandoras Box - Take my word - Realme 6 Pro will be absent for next one Month to not cannibalize sale of 7 pro & 8 Pro. ( 2k more for stereo speaker & 65W. Charging for 7Pro BTW. )

Realme 6 Pro is rarely visible since last 8 Months , only once in 1 or 2 sales it was available for 2 - 3 days max and then it again disappears. Whereas Realme X3SZ is ever available with similar config. so you know its "Deliberate" by Realme , they feel the Telephoto will Finish 7 Pro & 8 Pro off. Realme x3sz while have 5x zoom , has a disappointing 64Mp Primary ( With 2x More Noise then 6 Pro & lets forget about night mode on X3SZ ) , so you know why they dont sell 6 Pro as Camera is important selling Point.

You will not get 6 Pro even in Retail Offline Stores , Unless you are lucky.

Yes , Jayeash - Redmi K20 i have heard quite some compaints of screen quality , battery life afterall it was unique phone for xiaomi with pop out cams. But Apart from K20 & K20 Pro other models are good. ( But with case ).

@Jayeash - Yes , spend some time comparing & also seen reviews.
Final Thoughts - The Only thing that Trumps Realme 8Pro over Note 10ProMax is 3x Looseless "Digital" Zoom improved by stacking ( Marginally better photos at 3x & 5x then n10PM ) , & marginally better 108mp ( Which Redmi can improve in updates ) rest all goes on Note10PM side.

But yes Redmi - Xiaomi UI is buggy thanks to heavy customisation (Apple like in MIUI12 ) , whereas Realme has lesser ads & near stock android experience ( If you disable all animations etc. ) , hence you might feel Realme more stable , maybe components are also superior.

Realme 6 Pro is unique as it has a good night mode , proper telephoto ,good 30W Charging etc.
