Design

The new Aura Mirror design scheme of the Redmi 8 is definitely very attractive. It adopts a camera module placed at the center of the back cover alongside the Redmi logo placed vertically and a reflective back with suggestive light effects. It is surely the most interesting, despite it is made of plastic just like its rivals. Some may like the Realme C2 more since it has a more minimalistic design. But the Redmi 8 is also splash resistant with the P2i hydrophobic coating, while Realme C2 is not. Note that Realme C2 lacks a fingerprint reader, while Redmi 8 and Samsung Galaxy M10s have a rear-mounted biometric sensor.

 

Display

The Samsung Galaxy M10s is one of the few entry-level smartphones to sport an AMOLED display, and it definitely deserves the first place in the display comparison. It shows more brilliant colors and deeper blacks, even though the resolution is the same as Redmi 8 and Realme C2. Samsung Galaxy M10s also offers another important advantage: it has a larger display diagonal, that is excellent for people who want a comfortable phone for multimedia and productivity. So if you want the best display, go for the Galaxy M10s.

 

Specs & Software

Redmi 8 wins the hardware comparison because it comes with a more reliable SoC and a better memory configuration. It is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, while Realme C2 offers max 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage. There is a micro SD dedicated slot in each case, but it is not the same as having more internal storage. Android 9 Pie is installed out of the box.

 

Camera

Due to its pretty nice primary sensor and the presence of an ultrawide sensor, I personally prefer the Samsung Galaxy M10s if we consider camera departments. Currently, it is not easy to find an ultrawide sensor on an entry-level phone with a so affordable price tag. Further, the main camera has a bright aperture and it behaves well in most of the conditions. In the second place, we got the Redmi 8 which still comes with a bright focal aperture, but it lacks the ultrawide sensor. Realme C2 is inferior and we are talking about both the rear and front camera setup.

 

Battery

The real battery champion here is the Redmi 8 for the most simple reason: it sports a much bigger battery. And it even supports 18W fast charging. If you do not stress it too much, you can get up to three days of battery life on a single charge.

 

Price

You can grab a unit of the Redmi 8 for just €100/$110, Samsung Galaxy M10s starts from €115/$127, and Realme C2 starts from €95/$105. Note that the above-mentioned prices are referred to as the Redmi 8 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, the Realme C2 in the 2/16 GB configuration and the Galaxy M10s with 3/32 GB. With the actual prices, the Redmi 8 is an overall better smartphone due to its higher amount of RAM and storage, as well as a bigger battery. But Samsung Galaxy M10s still deserves an award due to its great display, bigger display size, and ultrawide camera.
