Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

74% Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Review – Powerful Midrange Smartphone?
Source: Manila Shaker English
Definitely. This handset retails for PHP 13,990 (4GB + 64GB) and Php 16,990 (6GB + 128GB), and we can say that this is a bang for the buck. The Mi 8 Lite has great ergonomics, classy and youthful design, powerful performance for its price, fast charging, and decent cameras. Xiaomi continuously proves that consumers don’t need to splurge huge amount of cash to get the best value.

Mi 8 vs Mi 8 Pro vs Mi 8 Lite: What's the Difference?
Source: PC Advisor English
Assessing which of these three Xiaomi phones is the best really depends on what you need. The Mi 8 Pro is technically the best, with the best specification and the fastest performance and highest amount of memory and storage out of the box, but the Mi 8 Lite is significantly cheaper and has a better selfie camera, albeit sacrificing some speed and display quality. The standard Mi 8 is, as you might expect, the best all-rounder, offering the performance, cameras and display of the Mi 8 Pro at a more attractive price, and all you really lose is the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite initial review: Mixing up the mid-range

‌We'll bring you more on the Mi 8 Lite once we get the chance to spend more time with it, but first impressions are good. This is a good-looking phone that doesn't feel like it's lacking in build quality.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite Quick Review: Can’t Get Any Prettier Than This
Source: Unbox English
Xiaomi’s been teasing the two phones for quite a bit in their social media channels, though both devices are expected to make their global debut in two days’ time. We earlier reported pricing for both devices through a leaked flyer provided to us, but apparently, Xiaomi says the price isn’t final yet and is still subject to change. So there’s still a chance that the price tags for the 4GB/64GB variant (Php 14,990) and 6GB/128GB (Php 17,990 ) variant of the Mi 8 Lite, and the prices for the 8GB/128GB variant (Php 32,990) for the Mi 8 Pro can still change for the better.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite Review: A latest Budget Flagship Smartphone For Young People
Source: Igeekphone English
In general , based on the price of 1399 yuan (about $203), it is difficult to find an opponent who is comparable to the camera and the face value. The low price but the flagship Smartphone configuration is still the mainstay of Xiaomi phone and this Mi 8 Lite is more promising to lose the “young” taste.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Xiaomi:
