The best Realme smartphones

Realme 8i

It arrived in Italy in October 2021 and features a 120 Hz screen with LCD technology. It’s not a compact device, measuring 164.1 x 75.5 x 8.5mm, weighing 194 grams, but given the screen size it was difficult to do better. The 5,000 Mah battery, assisted by an 18 watt recharge, allows you to cover a working day without any particular problems, even the most intense one, and with some attention you can get to two days. The photographic sector is average, with a 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8) flanked by two 2 megapixel sensors. Too bad for the absence of an ultra wide angle which would have been very convenient.

Realme 8 5G

It is available in our country from May 2021, in two memory variants and two different colors. The 6.5-inch screen, along with not particularly optimized bezels, brings the dimensions to 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.5 millimeters, with a weight of 185 grams. So the compromise between ergonomics and screen is not bad, too bad for the plastic back cover with a decidedly cheap appearance. The 5,000 mAh battery, which now seems to be a fixed point in this price range, allows you to get to at least 8 hours of screen and a couple of days of autonomy, as long as you don’t overdo it with 5G. Also in this case the 48 megapixel sensor alone is able to take good quality photos, even in more difficult situations. Substantially useless the other two sensors, depth and macro that do not help to improve the quality of the shots.

Realme 8 Pro

Realme 8 Pro was also launched, like many other smartphones, in March 2021 and is available in two different memory versions and three color variants. The dimensions (160.6 x 73.9 x 8.1) are important despite a 6.43-inch screen, but the weight of 176 grams allows you to keep ergonomics within more than acceptable limits, thanks also to a cover in satin plastic that improves grip. The 4,500 mAh is more than enough to arrive in the evening without problems, even on busy days. In any case, there is the fast charge at 50 watts that recharges the smartphone in a heartbeat. Realme shoots high with the main rear camera sensor, a 108-megapixel (f / 1.88) model, flanked by an 8-megapixel (f / 2.25) ultra wide angle defending itself, while the two 2-megapixel (f / 2.4 ) are of little use. Overall very good photos, good exposure and color balance.

Realme GT 5G

Sales of Realme Gt 5G began in summer 2021, with two different memory cuts and three colorways, including the iconic yellow color. Despite the 6.43-inch screen, the dimensions are acceptable: 158.5 x 73.3 x 8.4 mm and 186 grams of weight. The design is anonymous, but if you buy the vegan leather version, yellow with black insert, it is spectacular. With its 4,500 mAh battery Realme GT 5G it offers a good autonomy, enough to cover even the most demanding days.

Realme X3 SuperZoom

Arrived on the market in 2020 forwarded, Realme X3 SuperZoom obviously focuses on the photographic sector, without neglecting the rest of the technical data sheet, which is really very valid. We are not dealing with a compact smartphone, the 163.8 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm and 202 grams of weight are felt in the hand, but given the characteristics it can be there. Among the smartphones with periscope it is undoubtedly among the lightest. With its 4,200 mAh the battery will always take you to the evening, but if you set the screen refresh to 120 Hz you could have problems on busy days. At this point it is better to think about setting it to 60 Hz, so as not to have problems. The rear camera is very rich, with 64 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8), 8 megapixel 5X periscopic zoom (f / 3.4), 8 megapixel ultra wide angle (FoV 119 degrees) (f / 2.3) and 2 megapixel macro (f / 2.4). The photos are very good even if more was expected: at maximum level the zoom leaves something to be desired and at night some improvement will be needed. For the rest, however, the photos are of good quality.
