Redmi Note 8 Review


If you are looking for a budget smartphone that can give you great value for your money, then the Redmi Note 8 may be worth a look. It offers reliable performance, a great camera, and excellent build quality at a very reasonable price.

The Redmi Note 8 runs Android 9 Pie on Xiaomi’s skin, MIUI 11, designed to mimic an iOS phone’s experience. While it offers some nifty features, it also comes with a lot of bloatware you may not want.


The Mi Note 8 has a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. Its pixel density is 409 ppi, and the show is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

It offers decent enough viewing angles for daily usage as an IPS panel. The display provides a number of display settings, including three contrast presets – Auto, Saturated, and Standard- and color temperature modes – Default, Warm, Cool, and a Custom option.

The display is quite bright, too, with a maximum peak luminosity of 430 nits. That’s under Xiaomi’s claimed 450 nits, but it’s still plenty to see clearly in sunlight without shade.


The Mi Note 8 is the first smartphone in the series to feature a quad-camera setup. It combines a 48-MP wide-angle camera with an ultrawide camera, a depth sensor, and a dedicated macro camera.

It’s a relatively simple and intuitive camera layout, but it has limitations. In particular, it lacks some standard features on more expensive phones (like a dedicated telephoto lens), and the lack of a portrait mode makes it harder to take sharp and well-defined shots.


The Redmi Note 8 is a suitable budget device with enough performance to satisfy most people. It runs many apps smoothly without lags or performance issues and has a long battery life.

The phone’s MediaTek Helio G85 SoC is a decent piece of hardware that can handle daily tasks like playing games and watching YouTube videos. It doesn’t feel as fast as a more powerful chipset, but it is enough for most jobs.

It gets pretty hot, though, which is a typical issue for this class of smartphones. It also can stutter a bit on occasion when jumping between different apps.

The camera on the Mi Note 8 is pretty good, but you can’t expect it to compete with its more expensive counterparts. However, if you’re looking for a phone for everyday use at a reasonable price, it is one of the best options in its class. The design is excellent, and the build quality is excellent.


The battery of the Mi Note 8 is a 4,000 mAh Li-ion powerhouse. It supports Qualcomm’s 18W Quick Charge, which fills 30% of a completely depleted battery in 30 minutes.

It’s also the world’s most efficient lithium-ion cell. It can store up to 80% more power than the average battery and last longer between charges.

Moreover, it comes with a nifty little feature: Intelligent Protection. This feature prevents overcharging, discharge, and short circuits to prolong your battery’s lifespan.

It’s no secret that batteries have become a significant part of modern mobile devices. That’s why finding a quality replacement for your old battery is essential. You’ll be rewarded with a longer-lasting battery and a more stable device, which will help you enjoy your smartphone for longer. With this new-fangled battery, you’ll be able to keep up with your friends and family without worrying about missing out on a single moment of their lives.
