The Xiaomi Redmi 8: A premium phablet from the Chinese telecommunication giant. Xiaomi this time has hit the mid-range market with a sensational piece.
Xiaomi is a Chinese telecommunications company that has been manufacturing all the top electronic devices. It is one of the largest telecom makers in the world and the only company who has managed to grow its sales in the year 2017, developing all the latest Android tablets and smartphones and selling them at a really affordable range. The company has recently launched the latest Xiaomi Redmi 8 phablet with the latest technology and is all set to rule the market. The main show is the specifications offered with the package. Looking at the specifications, looks like Xiaomi is trying to steal some of the One Plus 6’s lemon light.
Xiaomi Redmi 8 is a 6.2-inch Android phablet which is big enough for productivity and small enough to remain wieldy. It features the new Qualcomm SnapDragon 845 octa-core SoC clocked at maximum 2.8GHz which is really a very nice thing to have in a mid-range device. It comes with either 64GB of storage or 128GB or 256GB of internal storage both models paired with 6 GB of RAM. Well, it may make some users looks again but the device does not have any SD Card slot so you’ve got to stick with what you already have. With Graphic purposes, the device is given an Adreno 630 GPU making it a great gaming device too.

A POWERFUL MID RANGE PACK!
Premium Build And Design
The Xiaomi Redmi 8 hosts a 6.21-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2248 pixels and 402 ppi 24-bit panel. The design somewhat looks like iPhone X because of the notch and 19:9 display. The display at this price is a bit disappointing being AMOLED and not delivering the expected looking. The device has a full-sized notch housing all the sensors and front camera sensor and the IR Lens as well. Also, there are thin bezels at the bottom making the design asymmetrical. Even if the device looks like iPhone X, it is giving top-notch features and in less than half the price of actual iPhone X. The rear camera setup is kept vertically aligned positioned at the side and not in the middle making it a little old-fashioned.

Tasks Are Executed Nicely And Quickly
The Xiaomi Redmi 8 works on Android v8.1 (Oreo) operating system with MIUI 10 layered over it. Moreover, it boasts of an octa-core Qualcomm SnapDragon 845 2.8GHz processor which is the latest yet in the smartphone market. Paired with 6GB of RAM the performance is outstanding and holds many high-end tasks effortlessly. Adreno 630 really pulls out the gaming potential of the device making it work even smoother. The MIUI is one of the most bloated and heaviest UIs in the smartphones, which keeps some people from having the phone with them. The unwanted bloat-ware and tendency to make the phone slow is the biggest downside for MIUI.
With A New IR Face Unlock
Xiaomi Redmi 8 features a 20MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls along with 12MP+12MP dual rear camera setup with LED Flash. Although, the picture quality is decent, in sunlight conditions the pictures are sharp and colored but in low light conditions, the camera doesn’t hold much. It has IR Face unlock features just like the FaceID but less secure than Samsung and Apple’s technology. It uses a dedicated IR Lens for the same which takes shelter in the notch above the display.

Full-Day Battery Backup
The Xiaomi Redmi 8 is powered by 3400mAh Li-Polymer battery which can work a full day under normal usage. The 3400mAh battery really supports the device despite the heavy MIUI it has to power. Under moderate usage like a little gaming, internet surfing and video watching, it provides a full day juice which it reduces if the game time is tweaked a little.Although, the device isn’t actually a gaming type but designed like that if the user wants it to be.

Xiaomi Redmi 8 may be a little oversized to some people who love to have a device they can single-handedly use, but the phone actually is in rivalry with OnePlus, therefore, it is not that much big. The display is good, the performance is excellent and the overall experience is quite great. Furthermore, the big thing buyers need to consider is the non-expandability of storage and camera quality.
Overall, Xiaomi Mi 8 is a great smartphone, and people who do not want to go high enough for OnePlus 6 might want to consider Mi 8 for once.
