Display and Design review of Redmi Note 8:-

This smartphone comes with a 6.39-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) LCD IPS panel display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. So this large screen is also sufficiently bright in all the lighting conditions and also offers great viewing angles. However, whether it be low light or great daylight, the display is perfectly fine in that particular situation. It provides you with better viewing performance. Coming to the design, this smartphone comes with a more attractive and improved design than the Redmi Note 7. The edges of this smartphone are also curvier than the previous one. This mobile comes with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front. The back adds to the overall design of this smartphone.

Hence, this glass body makes this mobile look premium, expensive, classy. But this is available at a more affordable price which was definitely one of the appreciating factors in this mobile. This handset is also light in weight compared to the Pro version. The power button and the volume buttons are to the right and the fingerprint scanner. The quad rear camera setup is placed at the back and you also get a 3.5mm audio socket, USB Type-C port, and a single speaker on the bottom. You can find an Infrared emitter on the top. The dual-SIM plus microSD card tray is placed on the left side. This smartphone is available in three color options including Neptune Blue, Space Black, and Moonlight White.

Camera review of Redmi Note 8:-

This smartphone comes with a rear quad-camera setup. That includes a 48MP f/1.79 primary camera which takes 16MP shots by default and you can record video at up to 4K 30fps or 1080p 60fps. And there is also an 8MP f/2.2 wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. Coming to the photo quality, this smartphone has delivered a highly impressive performance.

The 48MP primary camera gave bright images with great colors and has a good natural depth of field. The close-ups are perfectly fine but the subjects at a particular distance were willing to be grainier than expected. However, when shooting brightly colored objects, or in scenes with contrasting backgrounds, details were found to be lost sometimes. Pictures taken with the wide-angle camera were tended to suffer in terms of clarity and exposures were not balanced. It was also hard to capture anything that was moving.

Coming to the recording, the quality at 1080p is pretty good. It records at 60fps but the colors were pretty overblown at 4K which is 30fps. There was also a little lack of stabilization and at night, video quality was just ok and didn’t reach the expectations. This smartphone has a 13MP f/2 front camera for selfies and video calls. This provides a more smoothened and softened skin texture. If you want to turn off the Beautification, it should be done manually and it is a multi-tap process. The selfies came out grainy and blurry at night time but thanks to the night mode which improves the performance.

Performance review of Redmi Note 8:-

This smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The full-HD+ display paired with better audio delivers a better experience to the user in terms of entertainment. MIUI ran perfectly smooth while multitasking and fingerprint and face recognition sensors work perfectly fine and fast.

As per the benchmark tests, the performance score is 1,69,832 in AnTuTu and in Geekbench 5 the scores are 314 and 1,327 in single-core and multi-core tests respectively. These scores are very impressive for this smartphone which comes at a very affordable price. Coming to gaming performance, GFXBench’s T-rex and Car Chase tests ran at 33fps and 6.3fps respectively on this high-resolution screen mobile. However, PUBG Mobile ran at its low preset and the graphics quality is also low. But the game ran perfectly smooth and didn’t face any problem even the quality is manually raised slowly. But the major disappointment is that the back of this smartphone got pretty warm even after just one single match and Asphalt 9: Legends was a little laggy.

Battery:-

For a full workday, this 4000mAh battery is pretty enough and it doesn’t run out of charge even though performing multitasking and streaming videos, playing games, and taking lots of photos in that full workday. Interestingly, about 28 percent charge is leftover at the end of the day. And also the HD video loop test ran for 13 hours and 9 minutes which showed a pretty good performance with its high-resolution screen. However, this smartphone was charged from zero to 37 percent in half an hour, and up to 81 percent in one hour with its 18W charger.

Price:-

However, under Rs. 10,000 this smartphone is a pretty good choice because of its amazing multitasking performance, impressive battery, high- resolution display, pretty good design, and excellent cameras. This mobile is priced at Rs. 9999 for the 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage variant and the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 12,999. This mobile is available in three color options including Neptune Blue, Moonlight White, and Space Black. However, it is worthwhile taking this smartphone at this price segment with its amazing features.
