realme 8 5G Review: A Mid-Range 5G-Capable Smartphone On A Budget

5G technology is one of the features that consumers are looking for in a smartphone. High internet speed, low latency, more reliability. These are  some of the things what realme wants us all to experience. In short, to capture infinite possibilities with the power of 5G. That is why they have come up with a 5G capable mid-range smartphone under their 8 Series that is way affordable and has amazing specs. The realme 8 5G.

If you are planning to buy one, then let me share with you these 5 cool features which I love.

I always love a minimalist look. This is what realme 8 5G is giving us. A simple yet classy back panel design. If you noticed, compared to its other siblings in the 8 Series(realme 8 and realme 8 Pro), realme 8 5G does not have that “DARE TO LEAP” brand tagline on the back. realme retained the simple brand logo, same as we are seeing from its predecessors. The back panel also has a glossy finish that reflects a speed light design which gives this smartphone a premium feel especially when light strikes on it.

Customizing this smartphone is super easy as realme 8 5G runs on RealmeUI 2.0 based on Android 11. It’s has a very user-friendly interface. What I like about realme’s own UI is that I can customize the display and choose over a variety of customization options from system colors, themes, wallpapers, fonts and display size, icon styles, app arrangements, and many more!

One of the features to consider when buying a smartphone is the camera. I usually use my smartphone to take photos that I use for my blog. That is why I see to it that the smartphone that I’m using will provide me good quality photos. And realme 8 5G did a pretty good job in doing so.

So let’s start with the 16MP front-facing camera. I’m really amazed how the front camera can take nice quality selfie photos. The colors are on point, vibrant and has clear details. There may be some noise when being zoomed in, but when being viewed on regular frame the noise is hardly noticeable. Just like other realme smartphones, realme 8 5G has Beautification Mode that gives your selfie photos a more cleaner and smoother appearance. It also has a Portrait mode if you want to have a soft-focus background (adjustable bokeh effect). AI Filters are available too if you want to give each selfie a different vibe.

Other front front camera features include Time-Lapse, Panorama  and  Video Recording that can record 1080P/30fps or  720P/30fps videos.

Now for the rear camera. realme 8 5G has a triple-lens camera set-up consisting of 48MP main + 2MP Macro Lens, and 2MP B&W Portrait Lens that users will definitely enjoy as this produces decent and nice quality photos. For its price point it definitely does. The color saturation, reproduction, sharpness, and details are good. It may lack in texture a bit, but when you turn on the AI Enhancement feature, it definitely adds up on the vibrancy and details of the photo.

The rear camera also has a Night Mode feature so you can take better pictures even in low light environment. This mode has 6 built-in filters such as Modern Gold, Cyber Punk, Flamingo, Astral, and Dazzle where each provides a certain color hue and ambiance that will give each of your night photos a different look.

Other rear camera modes available: Slo-Mo, Time-Lapse, Expert, Panorama, Text Scanner. For Video Recording, it can record 1080P/30fps , 720P/30fps, and 720p/120fps slow motion videos with UIS Video Stabilization, UIS Max Video Stabilization.
