Sales package

As usual, before penetrating the specification segment, of course, we first evaluated the contents circuit contained in the sales box. Still the same as before, Realme still carries a yellow packaging which is a characteristic of realme 8 5G Series this time.

When the box is opened, the customer will get 1 unit of the realme 8 5G smartphone, 18W Quick Charger, USB Type-C cable, body protective soft case, and manual guidebook.


Realme 8 5G is the thinnest 5G smartphone in the segment. The 8.5mm super slim body and super light 185g make the author feel comfortable when using this smartphone to play games.

Super lightning ultra-smooth 90Hz screen

One of the most highlighted of this series is on the screen. Realme 8 5G has an ultra-smooth screen with a 90Hz refresh speed and a maximum sampling speed of 180Hz. This 90Hz screen produces a smooth visual experience in every movement on the screen.

With a large 6.5-inch large screen and 90.5% body-to-body ratio, Realme 8 5G gives users an extraordinary visual experience. The screen comes with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 FHD +, brightness of up to 600 nits, and 16.7 million color screens.

Realme 8 5G Review - Design

Clear camera

Not only about the kitchen runway, but the camera in the realme 8 5G series is also noticed by RealMe. Realme 8 5G has a 48MP main camera with nightscape, a B & W lens, and a macro lens. The ultra-clear 16MP front camera meets the selfie needs of users with aperture F2.0, supports several modes such as AI Beautification and the effects of bokeh.

The 8 5G realm camera has many popular night filters. With multi-frame synthetic machine technology, it takes a collection of photos with different light exposures simultaneously and then combines them into one. In addition to maintaining good exposure with spotlight points, this feature can also make photos in darkness brighter and clear with more details.

According to the author, the brightness between the results of the photo taken using the Night Mode feature one level is brighter than the shots without night mode. But if the personal writer is told to choose, the author prefers to take photos at night without night mode because the results are sharper and more assertive.

Both of them don't use Night Mode and don't add any filters. When the author increases the results of the photo from a 48m camera, the photo does not break. Usually, if the 48m camera results are printed in large sizes, then it will not cause the image to break.

Big battery pack

Although the Realme 8 5G design is made slim, this smartphone is still powered by a 5000mAh jumbo battery with 18W fast charging using the type-C connector, so it can be filled quickly.

Interestingly, this Gawai supports Smart 5G Power Saving. Because 5G requires more power consumption so that which will shorten the battery life. Thus, RealMe introduces Smart 5G Power Saving for the solution.

Smart 5G Power Saving is also capable of identifying signal strength around it and intelligently switches between 4G and 5G without a pause of the transition time, resulting in power consumption of 30% lower than the cellphone without smart 5G features.

In addition, it is also a super power saving mode that uses CPU settings, backlight adjustments, and other strategies as well as targeted power savings measures for certain applications, reduced system power consumption, and smartphone life can be extended.

When the author plays the pubg game on this smartphone for 1 hour, a reduced battery is 30%. Also, the battery from this smartphone is durable all day and even more even though it is used interactively. Moreover, if you added a series of features available like Sleep Standby Optimization, App Quick Freeze, and Screen Battery Optimization.

Be the first to use density 700 5g

The name is also a 5G smartphone, it is certainly the most important thing to pay attention to is the kitchen of his race. Realme 8 5G adopts the density 700 5G processor, which combines the two core capable ARM Cortex-A76 in the OCTA-core CPU that operates up to 2.2GHz.

Density 700 5G uses the latest 7nm production processor, which is more power-saving up to 28% compared to equivalent 8nm processes, allowing density 700 5G can use high-performance processors while sucking power, extending the battery life so that users remain longer. Density 700 presents a strong GPU, namely Arm Mali-G57 MC2 with a clock speed of 950MHz.
