Xiaomi Mi 8 review: Big bang for your buck

 

This Chinese phone brand's flagship offers affordable power - but there are compromises. Here's whether this Xiaomi should be on your shopping list.

Good value for money ; Plenty of power ; Great design

MIUI software needs refinement ; Low-light shooting not the best ; Battery life could be better

There's a lot that the Mi 8 does right for its asking price. While there are compromises, the experience is positive overall. It's only really the more established competition from OnePlus that poses much of an issue.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Review

 

We review this wallet friendly premium smartphone with a standard wide-angle camera, 2x telephoto camera, and a fast SnapDragon processor.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 has a number of flagship features, including an impressively fast SnapDragon 845 processor, yet the smartphone has a price tag that is roughly half the price of many other flagship smartphones!

... while you can use every SIM card you like, there are no system updates that are not delivered via Three, and they are reluctant to care for the MI8. Keep that in mind - the device itself is great, but Very doesn't advertize that the system is...
