A GOOD PHONE, BUT ONE THAT'S HELD BACK BY ITS AD-SUPPORTED UI

For a low price, the Redmi 8 looks fantastic and looks great on paper.
Perfect size, perfect balance, perfect price.
But there are compromises, that might just make this a deal-breaker.
The display is beautiful, but can feel overly sharp and uncomfortable to view for color rich images for long periods.
There are noticeable lag spikes, which are to be expected at this price point, but they occur very often even on basic apps.
While the rear camera comes with autofocus, I did find the phone struggling with the focus sometimes. If you are someone who likes to click pictures on the go, then the Redmi 8 isn’t for you. You can blame the smar...view more

Great battery, good performance

One of the best battery among similar priced devices while performance level in general is good as well. Also really nice build quality and well tested bug-free UI, compare to some other devices in the price range.

Hungry ads

Advertising galore, especially in stock apps and other strange places. Consumes device storage, not much, but slowly grows. No doubt a potential problem in the future. Issue is, when you turn your mobile data on, quite a chunk is consumed to download more ads. Needed a simple but smart phone on the go to save me money. This is not saving me money, or my sanity.

Ads became too much

I knew there were ads and was prepared to live with it for the price, but in the last few months it has gotten worse.
Ads are alot more persistent and harder to get rid off.
Worse still, are the content of said ads, alot of scam/NSFW/dodgy stuff.
Which is a shame really, bcos the phone is excellent and I was about to buy another one for my daughter.

Great phone for the price

For the price, this phone is absolutely perfect. Very fast and allows me to do everything I need. The camera quality is a little bit worse than my previous phone (S7 Edge.) Sometimes it has connectivity issues with my bluetooth devices but other than that the phone is well worth it.

Not quite as good a deal as my earlier model RedMi, but still good value

I loved my RedMi 5?, so went back to XiaoMi for the replacement.
There are a few odd missing features on the 8, such as no 5GHz wifi, and no notification LED, and there are a few more money-grubbing built-in apps. I've also had issues with services stopping automatically that I managed to keep going in the older one.
The proper double SIM will probably be useful once we can travel overseas again. The better battery life is supposed to be a plus on this model, but it's not actually so, as it doesn't look like it will quite make it to 2 days with my usage, so I still have to charge every night.

Redmi 8 provides reliable performance for everyday use. This model is focused on extra-long battery life, if you plan on gaming we would recommend stepping up to the Redmi Note series for extra performance and significantly more GPU grunt.
