Realme 8 review

The Realme 8 is a good phone for the price. Its design is very flashy, which is why it may find suitors in some only. The display is bright and colourful but does not have a high refresh rate. Performance-wise, it handles multitasking well. Some games run fine with high graphics settings, but a few need you to lower the settings to run properly. The battery on the phone lasts a day and some more. The 30W fast charging takes around 2 hours to fully charge the phone. The photos that the Realme 8 clicks are good and carry details, but things begin to suffer in low light photography. For Rs 14,499, Realme 8 is a good phone but you have Realme 8 5G available for Rs 14,999.
