Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 8

70% Xiaomi Redmi 8 review: Affordable yes, but what’s different here compared to Redmi 8A?
Source: The Indian Express English
The Redmi 8 is a good offering for its price of Rs 7,999 considering the big battery, and decent performance coupled with a stylish design. The weak point is the camera, which remains an issue on budget phones. The only problem is that given similar specifications, many users might prefer the Redmi 8A which is cheaper, runs the same processor and offers something very similar.

70% Redmi 8 review: Redmi 8A offers almost same value at lower price
Source: India Today English
Overall, I believe if you're looking for a good budget phone the Redmi 8A makes more sense. The Redmi 8A starts at Rs 6,499 in India. If you can spend some more money and want a phone that looks great, clicks well-detailed pictures, offers great performance and battery life then there's the Redmi Note 8. The Note 8 from Redmi comes with a starting price of Rs 9,999 in the country.

60% Redmi 8 Review: A Good Phone, But One That'S Held Back By Its Ad-Supported Ui
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Overall, the Redmi 8 offers you a great design, a good display, amazing battery life, decent cameras, and an annoying UI. Which means you actually get a pretty decent daily driver in the Redmi 8. While the Redmi 8 a great phone, I still think it's worth shelling out just that little bit more for the more capable Redmi Note 8, though.

Redmi 8 review: A performer for its price, if you don't mind the processor
Source: Business Standard English
Starting at Rs 7,999, you get USB-C port and 3 GB RAM, among other things. Even the 4GB RAM variant is available for the same price (first 5 million units only; after that you will have to fork an additional Rs 1,000). Xiaomi has definitely done some good work in key features, but a big trade-off has been in downgrade of the processor which might deter a few users. If you can ignore that, you get a decent performer that also looks beautiful and goes on and on, and some more.

70% Redmi 8 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Many Indian smartphone buyers are very conscious of specifications, down to the number and type of SoC CPU cores. This is especially true of young people who upgrade at least once a year and buy devices online – which is a huge swathe of the market. With the Redmi 8, Xiaomi is sidestepping raw performance and focusing on quality-of-life features as well as design. The intention seems to be to establish a firm distinction between the Redmi models and their Redmi Note siblings which are a step or two up the price ladder.

Redmi 8 review: It’s a side-grade really
Source: Android Authority English
Xiaomi is debuting the Redmi 8 with a promotional discount of Rs. 1000 for the first 5 million units. That’s how confident the company is about the hardware. To be fair, it is a great piece of kit, even though it doesn’t really push the boundaries of performance or imaging. I love the look and feel of the hardware, and Xiaomi has made quality-of-life improvements in features like the battery. That matters a lot in the segment the Redmi 8 competes in. It might not be the most exciting phone around, but the Redmi 8 has plenty to offer if you are looking for a new phone in the segment.

Qualcomm Adreno 505:

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:

Xiaomi Tech was founded as a Chinese smartphone producer in 2010 and soon reached high market shares in its home market. Although Xiaomi is not one of the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide in 2016, it is nevertheless one of the big global players in this market segment.

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.


71.2%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
