Unboxing Impressions

The first thing I noticed in the realme 8 is that it has a very slim body design compared to my realme 6 despite having the same 5000mAh massive Battery, it's very light compared to other smartphone w/ the same capacity. At the box in contains free rubber casing so you can assure that your new realme 8 is protected at day one and it has also a screen protector installed in the unit

realme 8 Unit Feel

It has a Infinite Bold Design as seen at the back part of the realme 8 with its quote "Dare to Leap" that highlights when it is reflected to light which adds that premium finish feel of the unit. It is actually a flagship phone for me with its Ultra-fast In-display Fingerprint Scanner which is commonly seen in realme Pro devices. It has Ultra-bold and modern design that caters to the youth's trendy and fierce aesthetic, comes in Cyber Silver and Cyber Black

It also has 3-Card Slot (2 sim & 1 SD card slot). realme 8 boasts the flagship, ultra-clear quad camera set-up, comprised of a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP 119° ultra wide-angle, and a macro lens and a B&W portrait lens, which I will try and show the results in the full review.

The realme 8 touch screen w/ the realme UI is very responsive and is parity with the iPhone in terms of touch & response, the amoled screen makes the colors more clear and vibrant to look a. It is powered by MediaTek Helio G95 which is exclusively designed to be the core of an incredible smartphone gaming experience, which I will try and post it in my realme 8 full review.
