If you are looking for a phone that is not too expensive and gives you nearly all the features that are mainstream, the Realme 8i is a good option to consider. Realme 8i will go on its first sale today. It was launched last week alongside the Realme 8s as the last two 8-series phones. The Realme 8i comes with a MediaTek processor, a big battery, a big display with a high refresh rate, and a catchy design that most people will like. The Realme 8i is for people that want a decent phone on a budget, so if you like gaming or something that needs high power, there are other options.
I tried the Realme 8i for a few hours, and I wrote about my experience with the phone in my first impression. The Realme 8i has a very intriguing design that includes a mirror finish on the back. It is similar to the one that the Realme 8 has, but with a few changes here and there. The Realme 8i has a high refresh rate display, which means navigating it is going to look smooth. The processor also seemed good enough for everyday tasks. I am sure it can also handle games, but not ones with high graphics. At its price, the Realme 8i is a good phone to go for.
If you think you are convinced enough and want to go ahead with the purchase of the Realme 8i, here are the details.
