Krika, 02 Oct 2019Exactly. Chinese vendors just stick with the same formula, and spews out phones with various s... morethey are following samsung's strategy of flooding the market with ranges upon ranges of devices in hope to stimulate sales.
Euhm.. SD425 isn't that an error.
The redmi 7 has a SDM632 which is much better than the SDM439.
From the specs alone IMHO the redmi 8a isn't a sufficient upgrade over the 7 and it's even worse compared to this Redmi 8. While between the redmi 7 and 7a is a significant difference (screen size, SoC, camera's)
The redmi 8 has a worse main camera (coupled with that useless 2mp portrait crap) but a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Everything else is the same as the 7a (screen size, battery, SoC, comms etc...). Fuck this, that CA73 from the Redmi 7 is much better than these milked-to-bones ridiculous A53's (yet again!!!!).
For god's sake these goddamn Cortex-ARM53's have been around since late 2012! Can we please STOP using them! Besides despite all these smartphones having (most of) the same internals with regards to SoC you, dumbass manufacturers, don't provide updates beyond 1 year for these "low end" devices anyway! So use the newer 360 silver or 460 silver kryo's instead of this! PLEASE!
Oh why do I even bother? I might as wel keep using my old Honor 8 which is still significantly faster than any of these!
falcon, 01 Oct 2019The mentioned price may be for 2 pcs...Price (now) is 1290 euros, for month it will be under 100 euros for 3/32.. And for that price who know maybe it will be ok
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2019any snapdragon starts with a 4 should not be touched.439 is ok, even today, for basic tasks (or in phones around 100 euros), 439 is similar to 450 or old but gold 625 in cpu and gpu, just made on 12nm
Wasper, 02 Oct 2019Sounds more like redmi 8A pro than redmi 8Yes, in India, Global version is Redmi 8
Essen, 01 Oct 2019Couldn't they have made this the one under 6-inch phone on their line up? 5.6-5.8 inches? What... moreExactly. Chinese vendors just stick with the same formula, and spews out phones with various shitty specs but similar screen sizes. These phones would sell very well in 5.5-5.8' range with a long battery life.
Essen, 01 Oct 2019Couldn't they have made this the one under 6-inch phone on their line up? 5.6-5.8 inches? What... moreI am too frustrated with all these new phones getting bigger and bigger day by day. Its has become really hard to get hands on compact phones nowadays and all these companies are not listening to the users who still like small or compact size phones. Just hoping if any company changes this ongoing big size phone trend just like they followed the shitty notch creation by Apple.
I think it's redmi 8a pro specs not redmi 8's,
I really don't think that they use SD439 in redmi even when redmi 7 has SD632.
CptPower, 01 Oct 2019Would like to know whats makes this phone different from a redmi 8A because i dont see anything. 8A = single rear camera, 2 + 32 , 3 + 32
8 = dual cam (wide + depth) , 4 + 64
Rest of specs are same.
tigerbomb1996, 01 Oct 2019better buy redmi note 7 (sd660)Better not buying any.
Awful UI, phones with high SAR...
Also I do not trust any chinese brand with my data.
Couldn't they have made this the one under 6-inch phone on their line up? 5.6-5.8 inches? What's the point of releasing a 100 phones every month all of them between 6.2 to 6.5 inches? It's getting annoying to not come across one compact, one-handed phone. Seems like the Galaxy S10e, A20e and A40 are the only ones that come close. The last two are only in limited markets in limited numbers.
Better to be Snapdragon 660 or 665 or if is Mediatek that must be Helio P60 or 65
Well, as expected
vanilla redmi is well known to have WORST value/price in redmi lineup, A and note usually better
Redmi 8 and redmi 8 pro and redmi note 8 and redmi 8a are diffrent devices
