Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8

70% Redmi Note 8 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
We're more positive about how the Redmi Note 8's base variant fares against its competition at the Rs. 9,999 price point than we are when considering the Rs. 12,999 price tag of the unit we've actually reviewed. The company has chosen its specifications wisely and while you could pick up the Realme 5 (Review) or Vivo U10 (Review) for less, you don't get the same combination of RAM, storage, or screen resolution.

Redmi Note 8 Camera Review: Good in daylight, lacks in low light!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Redmi Note 8 gave mixed results in the camera department. Although, it delivers some good results in daylight conditions with photos coming out with good details and dynamic range is to the point. However, in low light conditions, the results are quite average. The photos came out to full of grains and noises were clearly visible in the images. The shots taken from 48MP camera delivered good results in low light conditions, though in daylight, there was not much of a difference. The selfie performance is decent in daylight, though in low light it surely shimmers.

70% Redmi Note 8 First Impressions

Overall, it seems as though Xiaomi has done what it needs to do in terms of matching or exceeding the specifications that the competition offers for less than Rs. 10,000. However, real-world performance remains to be seen. The more premium variant that we're reviewing will of course have stronger competitors to fend off. Do stay tuned to Gadgets 360, as the full review of the Redmi Note 8 is coming up very soon.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8: Unboxing and First Impressions
Source: Team Android English
Tracing back to the device, holding Redmi Note 8 in the hand, it feels quite premium and solid. The glass back has been a great design choice at this price-point as it gives users a sense of luxury once they hold the phone. Also, our Moonlight White color is amazing to look at with its subtle blue/purple gradient. Lastly, there is a gloss surround to the whole phone and it is curved outwards for better grip.

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.
