What are the strengths of the Realme 8i? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the Realme 8i is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Realme 8i

Realme 8i's size

The Realme 8i is 3.0inches (75.5mm) wide, 6.5inches (164.1mm) tall, and 0.3inches (8.5mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Realme 8i, it weighs about 6.8oz (194g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Realme 8i, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Realme 8i's screen

The Realme 8i has a 6.6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Realme 8i is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Realme 8i

The Realme 8i has an extremely high processing power of 2.05GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Realme 8i has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The Realme 8i is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Realme 8i's storage capacity

The Realme 8i has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the Realme 8i is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Realme 8i

The Realme 8i has an ultrahigh performance 50 MP main camera. This allows you to make high-quality photos and will rarely leave you wanting with regard to camera performance. This will make using your camera fun.

The Realme 8i is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.
