Build/Design - The realme 8 Pro has a polycarbonate unibody back and frame and a 2.5D curved glass in front. There's no mention of glass protection. There's no rubber ring in the triple slot tray as well for some sort of water resistance.

The POCO X3 GT has a different design compared to its base variant. It has a glossy, glasstic back with a thick camera bump. Upfront, it has a punch-hole design with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protecting the 2.5D screen.

The POCO X3 GT takes a slight lead here with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. Both feature a beautiful design though.

Our thoughts

For PHP 1K less, the POCO X3 GT blows the realme 8 Pro out of the water for the most part. The latter only got a few points for the Super AMOLED screen. It is also a slimmer smartphone. Its major win came in the camera department as well.
