TwelveMoon, 01 Jun 2018There are no microSD card slot on the Mi 8, you might want to read the spec sheet once again. ... moreHi,
I have the mi-8 lite (64 gb onboard storage)
The dual sim card tray allows me to use my 32 gb sd chip.
It is not perfect however as some apps can access the data easily
some do not be able to. I have no idea why this is so.
I did get a file manager app which allows me to easily edit copy paste files
that will not work properly.
My Mort player audio book app can not see the sd chip
most of my other apps are fine.
I bot the phone nov 2018 in Hanoi Vietnam for use in Kanada.
Fak you Rogers !!!
"we have a 20MP front-facing sensor with large 2µm pixels for better low-light selfies."
20MP at 2µm pixel size and it would be a monstrous sensor, never fit on a phone for a front cam.
Actually, Mi 8 SE's front cam is powered by a 1/3" Samsung S5K3T1, which is 20MP at 0.9µm pixel size.
You can't called it 1µm (so you got that 2µm typo) only because you could integers it. 20MP @1µm means a 1/2.8" sensor, like Exmor IMX376 that equipped on Redmi Note 5, Oneplus 6 and 5T.
I really like the rectangle form factor. If it launches in India with the same price as China then I would definitely buy it.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2018It could have been so much more if it had a bigger battery. Jeez louis...why hurt yourself in ... moreBut that is a bigger phone with less potent internals and an LCD. So the Mi 8 has a smaller battery but it's pretty standard for most 5.8 inch phones
This is my next phone.. Like the square form, not rounded. This will be sell like cookies out there with affordable price. Well done, xiao mi..
Shanti Dope, 31 May 2018There's a microSD Card slot on the Mi 8 anyway, and 64GB is still enough in today's standards,... moreThere are no microSD card slot on the Mi 8, you might want to read the spec sheet once again. And as far as I know, pretty much all Mi series phones (especially the flagship, not the upper-midrange ones) doesn't come with it, so it's hardly a surprise. Nonetheless, 64GB (50GB user storage) is still fine for today's use, although I hoped someday Xiaomi will broke this tradition and start selling their flagship phones with microSD card slot on it :D
SohailSays, 31 May 2018Should have been a SD card option or 128 GB version. Should have, could have, would have.
Andy, 31 May 2018Since there's 3 versions they could've at least made one notch free Better yet, all of them.
It could have been so much more if it had a bigger battery. Jeez louis...why hurt yourself in potential sales Xiaomi? The redmi Note 5 doesn't have such a large STB ratio...
Weduz97, 01 Jun 201820mp 2um sensor? Are you kidding me man? The sony imx400 has 19mp resolution and only 1,22um ... moreSorry. Sony IMX x00 series is only available for their own Flagship phones. No other phones use that but they rather use the watered down but actually superior (in common with every phones rated overwhelmingly positive by DxOMark) sensors. Sensors like IMX 363 or anything below IMX 400.
Fly agaric, 31 May 2018Not at all - check current prices on LG G6. It outperforms Mi8SE in every aspect and for a bet... moreNot pricewise where I live.. and I prefer amoled screens and better battery life
20mp 2um sensor? Are you kidding me man?
The sony imx400 has 19mp resolution and only 1,22um pixel size.
a s d f, 31 May 2018why's the big notch if it doesn't have infrared face scannerI mean Xiaomi is known as the Apple of China
Brano, 31 May 2018"On the camera front, we have a 20MP front-facing sensor with large 2µm pixels". That so... more2µm actually means merging 4 pixels into 1 in low light. Don't be fooled by the Chinese marketing.
yee, 31 May 2018wow, that's something new! never seen a NOTCH before on any device other than ishit! lol Looks like this will be a the world's first handset to "feature" a camera bumb too. Kudos to you Xiaomi, kudos to you ^_^ .
