Realme has launched yet another 5G smartphone in India, and this time it's in the sub-Rs. 20,000 price segment. This new smartphone is the Realme 8s 5G, and it's positioned slightly higher than the Realme 8 5G which was launched a little over four months ago. This new smartphone brings a new processor, improved camera sensors, and support for faster charging. So is the Realme 8s 5G the phone to buy under Rs. 20,000? I put it to the test to find out.

Realme 8s 5G Summary

The Realme 8s 5G looks nearly identical to the Realme 8 5G. It has a  6.5-inch display with thin bezels on the sides but a slightly thicker chin. The Realme 8s 5G has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Realme 8s 5G has a triple camera module which protrudes enough to cause the device to rock when kept on a table.


Powering the Realme 8s 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 810 5G processor, and is paired with  either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Both variants have 128GB of storage which is expandable using the dedicated microSD card slot. Realme also has a Virtual RAM feature which lets you use 5GB of storage to extend RAM. You get a 5,000mAh battery and a 33W charger in the box. Battery life on the Realme 8s 5G was good, and it can last beyond a day quite easily. Charging the 5,000mAh battery with the supplied 33W Dart Charger got the phone to 94 percent in an hour.


Realme 8s 5G has a triple camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 2-megapixel B&W portrait camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. It managed good photos in daylight but the lack of an ultra-wide angle camera makes it less versatile than some of the competition. Lowlight camera performance was average though Night mode helped improve the output.

  • Good phone 🙂
    Himanshu Kargeti (May 29, 2022) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I bought 8gb one. Its good to operate it. I don't play much games but use YouTube Instagram and the battery lasts till the next day. Uninstalled some pre-installed apps like those were not good I feel. It's photos are looking so cool. no storage issue. No hanging issue. overall a good phone I bought.
