The Redmi Note 8 includes many refinements over its predecessor, with its new quad rear-facing camera array being one of the greatest. The device has a 48 MP primary camera, an ultra-wide-angle sensor, and two identical sensors for macro shots and providing depth-of-field information. Xiaomi has upgraded its Redmi Note series to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, which also includes an Adreno 610 GPU.
There’s a Redmi smartphone in every price segment that caters to consumers’ needs. Redmi Note 8 is a clear upgrade over the Note 7 when you consider the phone costs exactly the same as its predecessor. 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.

Notebookcheck Verdict – A strong overall concept
The Redmi Note 8 is another successful entry-level smartphone from Xiaomi that offers plenty of power for those who are operating on a budget. The hardware that Xiaomi has included for around 150 Euros (~US$165) is remarkable, although please keep in mind that this pricing only applies to the imported version. The same applies to its high-quality workmanship and build quality, while we are fans of its large IPS panel too. Although the latter does not offer the contrast ratio of an OLED panel, it does use PWM to regulate luminosity, which is a bonus for those who are sensitive to that type of oscillation.
Xiaomi has hardly compromised in any areas either, but the 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM top model costs almost the same as the Mi 9T or Mi 9 SE. While the Redmi Note 8 matches its Mi siblings in many areas, it cannot compete with them on camera performance.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is a triumphant entry-level smartphone. Make sure you buy the right version, though.
A word on buying an imported Chinese variant. Firstly, you may incur costly warranty exchanges or returns, which one would not experience with a handset bought in their local region. Secondly, the Chinese version of the Redmi Note 8 can only stream DRM-protected content in standard definition, a drawback that does not affect the European model. Finally, the Chinese model does not come with Google Play Services preinstalled, although these can be sideloaded. However, few smartphones at 200 Euros (~$220) offer as much as the Redmi Note 8, so we would wholeheartedly recommend checking out the European version if the issues that affect the Chinese model have put you off.Notebookcheck.net
There were times when the new Redmi Note was the best in its niche, but that time’s gone now. With Realme going all-in, and Samsung trying hard to snag a piece of that pie, Xiaomi needs to step up its game. The Redmi Note 8 is a great smartphone, sure, but we somehow expected just a little bit more.
Xiaomi does not need to worry about losing its fans – they are not going anywhere. And the Redmi Note 8 is an excellent choice as it is a worthy sequel and also a proper phone to own and carry around. It’s the newcomers that have more options now, and they won’t be as impressed with the Note 8 as those once were with the older models.GsmArena.com
Xda-developers verdict – Great Value For Money Without Compromise
The Redmi Note 8 is an all-round beast, delivering great value for money without compromising on the quality of components or cutting any corners that may give you pause. From design to cameras, to battery to performance, the Redmi Note 8 does everything reasonably well for the price it’s asking. If you’re not a serious gamer or a power user, it would make sense to save money and opt for the Redmi Note 8 as it offers a great camera package and reasonably good performance at a much cheaper price.
We welcome Xiaomi’s decision to ditch the 3GB/32GB variant and fitting the base model with 4GB/64GB memory as we feel 3GB of RAM doesn’t hold up well in the long run, and it’s not fitting for a 2019 device. Hopefully, this move will also force the competitors to follow the same. We wouldn’t recommend picking the top model (6GB/128GB) as we feel it deflects the value for money equilibrium. In that regard, the base model provides the most bang for the buck and the combination of 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage should be enough to provide an optimal smartphone experience for most users — if you want more storage you can always insert a microSD card.
The Redmi Note 8 will face direct competition from the recently released Realme 5s which matches the Redmi Note 8 on many fronts. It packs the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, a similar quad-camera setup, a bigger battery, the same memory configuration, and even starts at the same price point. But there are also compromises to be made. Realme’s latest budget phone also compromises in quite a few areas. For example, it comes with a low-res 720p display (as opposed to the full HD+ panel of Redmi Note 8), features a plastic back instead of glass, doesn’t come with a fast charger and still uses the age-old microUSB port. So even though the Realme 5s has managed to redress the balance to a great extent, in our opinion the Redmi Note 8 remains the best budget phone on the market that offers a truly non-compromising smartphone experience.XDA-DEVELOPERS.com
