Seems a better alternative than Poco M3 Pro, however the price will be more expensive (by much).

Why would anyone buy this over Samsung S8, S9, Note10?

What a trash crapieey CPU, and Snapdragon 836, 845, 855 would blow this out.

I wonder why i has more antutu score than Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G even tho they're both Dimensity 700 and with the same GPU. Any idea why? Realme 8 5G has around 300k Antutu while Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G has around 260k. Why is that?

Kiran, 16 May 2021It takes around 4 hours to charge from 0 to 100, in this ru... moreThere seems to be some compatibility issues or damaged cable / charger there bud. Even my old Asus max pro m1 does 5000mah at 10w at just over 2 hours.

2 core gPU! As we learnt with the G80 it is the wrong way to go

Anonymous, 15 May 2021damn theres lotta apple haters on this site. bro i just ... moreYou should argue diligently with valid points instead of straight away crying and accusing those that didn't agree with you as 'haters'. No one likes a crybaby! Btw, pretty sure your Redmi Note 8 got problem if it lags every time you touch the screen. Another tip for you: Don't exaggerate just to make your choice look better. It is easy to see how biased you are.

Cuz no midrange or entry level phone charges that slow. Heck even 7k mah battery with 15w charger won't charge for like 4 hour I think u use 5w charger or u may be talking about that it last 4 hours of gaming

wongwatt, 15 May 2021Why would you buy this over the 7 5G? That phone is better... moreMarkets. Not every market got 7 5G variant. So somewhere this 8 is a new entry.
Plus there is Narzo 30pro which has D800U processor.
Things are really confusing these days. Or atleast brands want to confuse us.

Since when did snapdragon 480 5g have 8 cortex a53 cores? Doesn't sd 480 5g have 2×a76 + 6× a55?

Anonymous, 15 May 2021damn theres lotta apple haters on this site. bro i just ... moreWhat sane person would recommend an ancient Apple device at the end of its support cycle over a brand new device though?
It's illogical.

Why would you buy this over the 7 5G?
That phone is better in just about every way and has dropped to a price that's very close to this one, I don't understand why there are so many downgrades on the new model or why they've even bothered to release it given that the 7 is a perfectly competent device.
