In the first three months of 2021, Realme has already released six smartphones (including the Realme 8
Plus, the new phone is a little more expensive. Is the latest Realme smartphone a good choice for those looking for a smartphone under Rs 15,000?
What’s amazing about the Realme 8?
The new Realme 8 smartphone has a great design and is well-polished. However, not everyone is a fan of the company’s daring “Dare to Leap” tagline, which appears on the back of its phones. The tagline gleams in various colours as the light reaches the back wall.
The good news is the the black Realme 8 doesn’t make that tagline stand out as much.

Realme 8 Camara Experience:
The main camera on the Realme 8 is a competent daylight shooter. Outdoors, you’ll be able to take vivid, colourful images with the Chroma Boost feature, which adds a little more punch to the colours. Even moving objects can be captured in decent stills thanks to quick autofocus. As compared to the main camera, the wide-angle lens is best used in daylight, and the colours can appear slightly washed-out. With the macro lens, a similar washed-out effect can be seen.
In dimly lit settings, the night mode does a decent job of increasing exposure and minimizing noise. You can see the difference between a picture taken without night mode and one taken with the long exposure mode allowed in the image above. The leaves are not only greener and clearer, but the brightness of the street light is also more balanced.
Realme 8‘s gaming experience
When We were playing resource-intensive games at High settings. On Call of duty Mobile, the default setting was Very High, and We had to adjust it to High-Medium to get a playable and smooth experience. The device’s back panel did get a little warm after around 30 minutes of gameplay.
The “Game Assistant” was the only part of this section that I found irritating. Every time you open a gaming app on your phone, it forces you to find out what the Game Assistant can do, which can only happen if you’re new to the system and don’t know what it can do.
Realme 8 UI:
The Realme 8 comes with Realme UI 2.0, which is built on Android 11. It has a fast and sensitive UI with a few pre-installed apps such as Facebook, Snapchat, Soloop, and Amazon, among others. These applications can be uninstalled to make your home screen look cleaner, or they can be replaced with apps that you actually use.
With Realme UI 2.0, you can change the icons, accent colours, and pick between three dark mode types, giving you more ways to personalise your phone. While the phone supports Always On Display, I was unable to personalise it with artwork, as promised by Realme UI 2.0.
