In fact, here’s one I made a while back, and this guy starts at just 190 pounds, which is insanely low for a 5g phone. So let’s get started, and here we have the well-known genuine me yellow box, with the following headline specs: A 705 g chip, a 90hz screen, a large 5000 mAh battery, and a 48-megapixel triple camera array are all included.
In terms of the phone itself, we get a 6.5-inch display. I have the supersonic blue model, which is rather lovely. Looking closer, there’s a black as well, and it’s kind of cool how the light catches it.
You get this almost three-dimensional effect. Of course, it’s plastic, and it smudges easily, but I like it, and you can understand why when I compare it to its siblings, the regular real me, 8, and the 8 pro.
The 5g model is the only one without the garish daring to leap motto and the dual-tone design, but which of the three do you think looks best now that you can see them side by side?
At 8.5 millimeters, the 5g variant is slightly thicker and heavier than the other two. It’s approximately a half-millimeter thicker than the eight, and you’ll notice what appears to be a quad-camera configuration, although the top right lens isn’t one at all.
It simply states ai, which may be a little deceptive at first glance. We also have a fingerprint scanner built into the power button, a single speaker on the bottom, no twin speakers, but we do have a three and a half millimeter headphone port and a three-card tray if I open this up.
So you can add up to two 5G sim cards and a microSD card, giving you a total storage capacity of one terabyte for all of your 4K family movies. That’s a joke I’ve used before. I’ve done it three times now.
I need to quit doing that and then come out in front. We have a hole punched out for the selfie camera, which also allows face unlocking, although it is a little larger than the one on the 8 and 8 Pro, as you can see. Every move realme has taken with this phone appears to be aimed at making it as cheap as possible, because on paper at least, the realme 7 5g is cheaper than last year’s.
This is a step in the right direction. Down. The one from the previous year. The phone sported 120 hertz faster charging and a quad-camera setup, however, it cost 280 pounds at launch, despite the 75g being dropped since then.
So the difference between that and this isn’t as substantial, but if 5g is crucial to you, presumably to make your phone more future-proof, and you’re also on a low budget, this is the way to go. Then this is an incredible value, thanks in part to being one of the first phones to come with Mediatek’s new dimension, 700 chip. It’s definitely a mid-range processor, but it’s actually Fairly capable. To give you an idea, if I combine the geekbench and 3dmark results for all three 8 series phones, the 5g actually has the fastest CPU, though not by a huge margin, and it also fa
Helio g95 Realme 8. Even though genshin impact, which is honest, one of the most demanding games on mobile right now, was playable, albeit, with the occasional frame drop and stutter, it played Call of Duty effortlessly on medium high settings.
However, the 85g entry-level model only has four gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of storage, which is understandable considering the price. However, seeing a 5G phone with only four GB of RAM seems strange.
They usually’re mutually exclusive because you’d expect a 5G phone to have a high spec, but this is kind of tossing that on its head, and I believe I’d spend a little bit extra to get this with six GB. Of ram simply makes it a little more future-proof, especially if you’re buying it for its future-proof 5g capabilities, and you can always add a micro sd to extend the storage.
But it seemed speedy overall, thanks to the current Android 11 and realme ui 2 software, which I genuinely like and has a lot of customization choices. The 90-hertz refresh rate screen, on the other hand, really helps to make this feel faster.
So we’re back to balancing and deciding if you want an AMOLED 60 hertz screen like the basic, realme 8, or a 90-hertz LCD like the 5d model.
Personally, I believe that a 90-hertz refresh is more valuable. I believe you encounter an AMOLED screen more often than you realize, which provides greater contrast, ratios, and viewing angles. But you’re not using it if you’re using it at a fair straight-on angle.
You’re looking from the side, and you’re concentrating on the black bars that surround the movie in general. On a daily basis, there isn’t much of a difference, and it still looks fantastic. It’s an ips with up to 600 nits of brightness, so it’s suitable for outdoor use.
But, what do you think? Would you prefer a 60hz AMOLED or a 90hz LCD? Although we would all prefer both in an ideal world, the benefit of having a 90-hertz refresh and 180-hertz touch sampling is that the phone seems lot smoother and more responsive? You can select to keep it at 90 hertz all of the time, but I prefer to leave it in auto mode so that it changes dependent on the app and saves you some battery. Unfortunately, we don’t got 5g where I live in the Southwest of England yet, so I can’t test how fast it can go or the effect on battery life.
Although we do have various 5g battery setting modes built-in, in my experience using this with 4g and wi-fi, I can get to approximately 11 p.m. at night with 30 minutes left, which is really decent, and also watch one hour of YouTube.
The battery life was good at 50—brightest, which utilized 8% of the battery life. However, if you use 5g, it would have an influence as well. The charger, on the other hand, is the main drawback. In the package, we get an 18-watt charger, which is a step down from the 30-watt charger that came with the genuine me eight or even last year’s.
Seven 5g had 30 watts of charging power; thus, it was weird to decrease down to 18. But, again, I suppose it’s about saving money. Let’s get started. Let’s talk about this camera for a minute. Unfortunately, the ultra wide lens, which was available on the 8 and 8 Pro, is no longer available.
However, we still have a 48-megapixel main camera and a macro lens and a black-and-white portrait lens, which is designed to increase picture quality and bokeh. Of course, you must reduce your expectations for a phone that costs only 180 pounds, but I believe it performs admirably overall.
You may shoot at a resolution of 48 megapixels. If you’re looking for the greatest possible resolution, you’ve come to the right place. There’s also a pro mode for tinkering, as well as an ultra macro lens. However, as usual, these traction macro lenses don’t provide much value.
However, in my opinion, we do get a decent night mode that works with both the back and front cameras, which is always a plus. Although low-light photos can be a little grainy and have a limited dynamic range, they are still a good camera.
However, I believe that, for the price, it is adequate as a quick point-and-shoot – and I particularly enjoy the selfie camera – albeit it may lack a little sharpness and clarity. But the exposure and colors look fine, and that’s with all of the AI beautifying options turned off (though I probably should have kept them on), so that’s the new realme.
The nice stuff, at 8. 5G! We’re getting an amazingly cheap 5g phone with good battery life and a triple card slot with a microsd dual sim 5g 3.5 mil headphone jack, which is nice. I believe it looks fantastic, too, especially with the 90-hertz screen, so all in all, it’s a fairly good all-around phone with an absurdly low price.
Yes, it is. There is no ultra-wide camera on the LCD, and strangely, the charging speed has been reduced. However, while there are a few concessions, you can’t really do much better than this if you want solid dirt, cheap 5g phone, although if you’re not that bothered by 5g just yet, and frankly, I’m not sure if it’s really necessary, especially at this price range.
Then I’d advise you to use the normal realm 8. Although the frequency is only 60 hertz, we do receive an AMOLED screen. For gaming, the helio g95 chip is superior. A high-resolution, 64-megapixel camera with an extra-wide lens, as well as an in-screen fingerprint scanner and speedier charging, are all included.
My only criticism is that the distinction between the seven and eight series isn’t as distinct as it should be. It’s a little more complicated than that. Now, if you want to check it out for yourself, I’ll leave the links below, as well as the fact that the real me is running.
There are some great launch bargains available right now, so get in early if you want to upgrade, but what do you think? Would you be tempted to buy this, and do you think it’s worth it to have 5g at this price? Is it just a tad on the pricey side? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
