Xiaomi has unleashed a whole pack of new Redmi and Redmi Note smartphones over the past month, as the market shows no signs of slowing down. There has so far been no lack of competition for the Chinese giant, but it has managed to keep up. Buyers don't seem to mind too much, as they're getting more for their money than ever before. The Redmi 8 is the latest iteration of one of Xiaomi's most affordable models, and so it automatically has a huge potential target audience.

Redmi 8 Summary

Xiaomi has taken its base Redmi series in a new direction, with a weaker processor than the previous model but improvements overall in terms of design and features. The company is hoping to deliver a more rounded experience, so while gamers might be disappointed, there's enough for most poeple to be satisfied. The Redmi 8 feels great in the hand, with a relatively sober exterior and a choice of three jewel-toned colours. The build quality is excellent, and you won't find a rough edge anywhere. However, this phone does borrow a lot from its less expensive sibling, the Redmi 8A. 

The Snapdragon 439 SoC is relatively underpowered but there's 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage. You also get a 5000mAh battery and support for 18W fast charging, though only a 10W charger is included. The HD+ screen measures 6.22 inches and is decent for a phone at this price. 

While general performance was good for day-to-day use, the cameras were disappointing. Images didn't always come out looking sharp, and photo quality was especially poor at night. Xiaomi's MIUI software is also full of bloatware and ads. 

Overall, this is a good phone to buy if you want a polished experience, but you might need to spend a bit more if you need raw performance.

  • Worst phone ever from security perspective
    Rashmi Agrawal (Oct 27, 2020) on Gadgets 360
    Dear All, REDMI/XIOMI has serious issues with data security. I am writing this review as I do not want anyone else to be victim, anyone else shall not go through what I have gone through. Personal data from REDMI can be accessed by 3rd party without your consent or notification. 3rd part can trake all your activity, infect they can operate your phone. I have already written this to XIOMI team and awaiting response from them. Kindly do not purchase any XIOMI phone, it has serious data security issue. There is no option to give -ve rating hence giving least. Govt shall boycott this phone before many users come into same situation. Kind regards,

  • FlipKart can close return window I am not going to return it
    Sivaraman Hariharan (Dec 2, 2019) on Flipkart
    FlipKart can close my return window now itself. I am not going to return this phone at all. At last a budget phone with massive 5000 mAh battery and superb camera. BTW, If you want a good smartphone in this price segment I will highly recommend this phone. Go for it blindly. I ordered on Nov 29th 2019 Friday, & FLIPKART got it delivered on December 01st 2019. (colour- Ruby RED, Variant- 4 GB Ram & 64 GB RoM) Now let me start about with the pros & cons about the new "Redmi 8" --- Pros :) 1. 5000 mAh high capacity battery 2. The new Aura Mirror design (Looks very attractive...!) 3. Corning Gorilla glass 5 protection (Front side) 4. 18W fast charging supported with Type-C port. 5. 2+1 dedicated micro SD slot. 6. 15.8cm (6.22) Dot Notch Display. 7. 12+2 MP AI Dual back Camera (Sony IMX363 sensor.) 8. 8 MP AI Selfie camera. 9. It has Android 9 with MIUI 10, upgraded to MIUI recently 9. Dedicated face recognition scanner which actually works in the DARK ! Cons :( 1. No headphone available as Xiaomi did everytime. 2. ***PROCESSOR - Now we talk about the processor of this mobile. I think Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 is not suitable in this mobile. If you're a PUBG or other high defination game lover, than this is not for u (they can be played but not so smooth). And in Redmi 7a, there is same processor available. So, it's a funny part of this mobile. BTW, If you planning to buy this mobile then, go for it, bcoz in this price segment MI did an great work for ourselves (except processor). If it helps, please click the like button. It will help a lot of people.
