Although Realme is not among the largest smartphone companies at the moment, but if it continues to launch phones like Realme 8 Pro, we can only expect that it will reach the top in a few years, the new 8 Pro phone comes with the best specifications possible with a price Reasonable and suitable for everyone.
It was launched alongside Realme 8 in early 2021, which is the successor to the Realme 7 series that was unveiled last year, Realme Pro is likely to be the most affordable phone from the Chinese brand in 2021.
However, you will not feel as if the phone comes at its real price, and if it is launched at a higher price, no one will complain given that it has an ultra-high-resolution main camera, incredibly fast charging, and a premium display as well.
Our favorite aspect of the phone is its design - most low-cost phones are relatively thick, hard to hold in one hand, and made of cheap-to-touch plastic, so the Realme 8 Pro is thin, portable, and has a nice look.
This is also possibly one of the best mid-range camera phones on the market, thanks in large part to its 108MP main camera. Which captures ultra high-resolution images.
Also here is 50W fast charging, which can charge half the battery in less than half an hour, and is much faster than most other phones in the same price category. The battery will also last an entire day without any issues.
Realme 8 Pro has been launched in many regions around the world, including India, but not Egypt, Saudi Arabia or Iraq yet.
The cost of the phone is $ 248 for the 6 + 128GB version, and $ 275 for the 8 + 128GB version.
We are still waiting for the phone to be launched further next month because it will be an ideal choice for everyone who wants to own a premium smartphone without paying a lot of money.
Although it is definitely not a compact phone, the Realme 8 Pro looks very small compared to its competitors, which is great for people who do not want a gigantic smartphone. It's thin and relatively light, and it has a smaller body than we're used to.
The design is definitely plastic, but with somewhat better material than traditional plastic. The back of the phone contains the phrase "Dare to Leap", which is the well-known Realme logo, but with rather large letters, which some may find annoyingly prominent, while others may not mind.
The phone has a USB-C port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and both the volume control button and the power button are located on the right edge of the phone. Thanks to its size and button locations, Realme 8 Pro can easily be used with one hand.
The size of the phone display is 6.4 inches, which makes it significantly smaller than many other phones of similar price, but it does not come complete due to the hole hole that houses the front camera in the upper left.
The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, and is very suitable for any smartphone. It's the same proprietary resolution as most games, apps, or streaming services you'll use, although it's less than most flagship phones.
The refresh rate is 60Hz, which is common for all phones in that price category, although some phones come with a refresh rate of 120Hz. If your priority is to buy a phone with a high refresh rate, you should go for other options.
Surprisingly for a phone at this price, there is a fingerprint sensor under the display, which we found works fine and the phone barely failed to recognize the user's fingerprint to recognize the thumb during the first attempt.
Realme 8 Pro has a 108MP main camera, and it is not the first phone in that price category to have such a high-resolution main camera, as another phone preceded it which is Redmi Note 10 Pro. Joining this camera is an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera with a 20MP front camera.
"High resolution" doesn't always mean "taking beautiful pictures" when it comes to smartphone cameras, but we liked the photo clips on the 8 Pro.
In good lighting conditions, images looked excellent, with rich detail and reasonable contrast ratio.
Thanks to the high resolution, we can easily download pictures from the phone to any computer, edit and crop them, without you ending up with a low-resolution image or a blurry picture in detail.
However, not everyone will be interested in taking 108MP photos because they take up a lot of storage space, but having a great camera with that resolution in that price bracket is definitely great.
Seldom does the 2MP assistive cameras add anything to smartphones, and that is the case here too. The macro shots were so blurry that they were practically unusable.
We have to pay tribute to the front camera, as the selfies looked great, full of color and saturated with detail.
The video recording quality here is up to 4K at 30 fps or 1080p at 60 fps.
The phone runs on a mid-powered Snapdragon 720G processor paired with 6 or 8 GB RAM, but we didn't find the performance slow at all.
We did not have any issues with the phone in games, although we chose the average graphic settings in games, it was always fast during the game and rarely there is any delay
It's the same story with normal phone use, whether it's opening and closing apps or browsing social media sites where we were never disappointed either. Unless you're switching to the Realme 8 Pro from a flagship phone, it's pretty cool.
The phone comes with a 4,500 mAh battery, and we found that the phone easily continues to work throughout the day, even if we use the camera or play a lot of games. Unless your usage is very limited, it seems unlikely that the phone will survive the second day.
The fast charging here is 50 watts, and it took us less than an hour to fully charge the phone. There is no support for wireless charging here, but that is to be expected for a phone at this price.
Realme is a leader in providing fast charging for phones in the middle class, so 50W is not a big surprise, although it is a feature that Realme should praise for. However, Realme 7 Pro was launched with fast charging 65W.
