realme Note 50 vs Infinix Smart 8
In the competitive budget smartphone arena, brands try to one-up each other while keeping prices low. Two models aiming to provide excellent value are the newly-launched realme Note 50 and Infinix Smart 8. In this hands-on comparative review, we’ll examine how these sub-₱5,000 handsets stack up across critical categories like performance, display, camera capabilities, and more.
Priced very aggressively at just ₱3,599, the Note 50 promises smooth 90Hz visuals, fast Unisoc T612 processing power, and a dual camera setup for enhanced portraits – impressive at this price point. Infinix’s Smart 8 retails for ₱300-₱1,000 more depending on memory configuration, matching its rival’s chipset with a marginally less powerful Unisoc T606. Its highlight is likely the 8MP selfie camera, higher than the Note 50’s 5MP front sensor.
