Xiaomi Redmi Note 8/8T review

  • Published on Dec 11, 2019
  • The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 and 8T are two awesome midrangers. They offer identical features, build and screen quality, battery life, performance, and camera image quality but the Note 8 is sold in Asia, while the 8T is for the EU market. We've decided to review the two together.

    This device can be a great alternative for budget digital camera. I was thinking to buy a Digital camera, last year dump cannon 7.1 MP camera because of the time consuming process of recharging batteries. My budget was under 10k which is enough to take normal pictures in normal conditions. Almost decided another Cannon new model for 7k. Then suddenly i remember this phone which cost about 10k. And as a happy customer of poco F1 I think it is a perfect device. Reasons -
    1. 4 rear lenses with dedicated one and a powerful flash.
    3. Type C connector which is a great way to charge the battery and transfer the images to laptop for editing.
    4. Snapdragon processor which will definitely useful to edit photos on the device using apps like Snapseed it Adobe apps.
    5. Direct sharing of images in popular apps like Instagram, snapchat and othe similar platforms.
    So, overall i think it is far better then a basic digital camera at the same price ranges.
    Or can be a good primary phone for new users.

    So basically you should go for the the Note 8 if you have the choice. You get a notification LED and it doesn't matter what the charger is because fast charging is bad for the battery and you should never use it anyway. And NFC is also useless.

      @Sejfulah thanks for the information i also think of getting the 8T wasn"t sure of the miui but heard they updated it

    • Sejfulah

      well if u want 8T it has worse battery (4000) and if u want A3 u don't have bad battery (4030)
      but if you are a big gamer A3 is good for gaming but 8T is too but it just lags just a bit not much.
      A3 heats faster while 8T doesn't A3 has worse rear camera (48 mpix + 8 mpix + 2 mpix) But! The selfie camera is Better (32 mpix) than 8T selfie camera But! 8T has better rear camera (48 mpix + 8 mpix + 2 mpix + 2) but selfie camera (13mpix) isn't better than A3's selfie camera ,and also you get 3 modes on 8T 1,5 closure 2,5 and 4,0 i think And 8T has better splash proof {IP52} i think 8T Operating sistem is MIUI 10,and A3's is Android one,so 8T's operating system is better .A3 in Height has 6,1 since the 8T has 6,3 so it is bigger,The 8T is cheaper 220$ And A3 is Expensive 240$. And also a little thing T on 8T means Third (3).
      I prefer 8T tho

    Redmi Note 8 Pro vs Redmi Note 8
    (Note: I am not a gaming enthusiast, at least not on phones, and neither do I take a lot of pictures other than notes at school, so, apart from the multitasking ability what are the pros & cons of the RmN8Pro compared to the RmN8 if I am looking for a budget phone price vs overall performance?

      if u can get the pro version than go for it but if u can afford just the note 8 than it's also good

      yung flippie7 28 days ago

      @Lenton Thick, no. But it may feel a little too big, I mean it's 6.3 inches but im getting used to it. Also the Note 8t has Snapdragon 665 CPU and the note 7 has 660. Note 8t also has better gpu and it has fast charging, you also get fast charger brick in the box. Aand 8t is more recent(with couple of months). Hope I helped you man, have a good one!

      If you're getting in the US, I'd say get a older flagship like a LG G7 instead.
