  • As aforementioned, the very first similarity between the devices is their MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset that is an octa-core 5G chipset with a primary clock speed of 2.4GHz. And this is why, both Lava Agni 5G and Realme 8s contain the same Mali-G57 MC2 GPU as well. However, the advantage with the Lava device is its Stock Android 11, while Realme 8s runs on Realme UI 2.0
  • Both the devices occur with a similar max RAM and ROM support. Both of them have a max of 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. However, Realme 8s contains a lower variant with 6GB RAM as well.

  • Talking about their cameras, while both of them have an exactly similar 64MP main camera and 2MP each for depth and macro, Lava Agni 5G contains an extra 5MP ultrawide camera and this makes it a quad-rear camera device against a triple rear camera in Realme 8s.
  • Talking about the price of the devices, both of them occur at around 20k in India, but for 20k, you get Lava Agni 5G with 8GB RAM and Realme 8s with 6GB RAM.
