"No 3.5mm jack, no microSD slot, no IP rating, no stereo speakers, no wireless charging"
Five cons in one bullet?!
This phone is simply forgettable no thanks to all of the omissions.
At least it got the notch though. It helps me remember to just ignore this phone more.
It's time for Flagship Killer camera shootout : Xiaomi Mi 8 vs OnePlus 6 !
Tanase Adrian, 28 Jun 2018sadly,i don't like where xiaomi is going....is used to be great value for money,but seeing som... moreI agree. Xiaomi is becoming stupid with its flagship releases. Small battery, no sd card slot, no ir blaster, no FM radio unlike its cheaper midrange offerings. It has become another run of the mill flagship with a clear motive for planned obsolescence in a year or two.
Not very detailed review,i wait for global release review.can someone confirm about led notification light,is it multi colour or just white color like Last year Xiaomi phones.
the truthfinder, 28 Jun 2018this mi8 is slower than oneplus6. camera quality is poorer. video only up to 30fps, but the ... morewell mate ...... mi8 may be slower than one plus 6 as one plus is really good with their software (custom stock android ), but in terms of camera quality mi8 camera is superior to one plus 6 so plz before you comment u must check the device itself.....and on comment i had already mentioned from my point of view mi8 camera is better so plz u find the truth and get ur fact ri8
helping hand, 28 Jun 2018the OnePlus6 is cheaper/similar priced as the mi8, has better specs (8gb ram), is faster, take... moreYou should check the facts before you write this..1+6 is 600euro,Mi8 450.1+6 have fake second camera..gsma explained this in details..
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2018After seeing the weak benchmarks results I changed my mind for the Mi8 I was also shocked, but then... take a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a56lEY6RvPk 268k sounds much better... As stated in the review, there may be a problem with ROM.
I hope GSMarena reviewer turned off MIUI optimization option in Developer options before running benchmarks.
Thanks for review, appreciate your hardwork.
One suggestion though can you please enable photo camparison tool on your mobile site as well, not everyone access this site on their computers, laptops, etc..
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2018Thats a good price for the Mix 2s, but I personally prefer Amoled displaysi prefer lcd. No screen burn in issue for long term. Planning to use my mix 2s for 2 years atleast. So far its worth the price. Cheapest snapdragon 845 phone you can get in Msia. The rear camera is very good too. While the front camera is pretty bad quality aside from the weird placement(not a problem for me just that the quality matter)
plus NO NOTCH
is my reason to get Mix2s over Mi8. A day after the announment of Mi8, I straight away purchase mix2s :)

Awful b... moreYou forgot:
(Probably no proper 4G+ support outside China),
Actual resolution less than 1080p (like OnePlus 6).
sadly,i don't like where xiaomi is going....is used to be great value for money,but seeing some basic things that defined xiaomi gone(like 4.000 mah battery, ir blaster, apearence of a notch) just doesn't feel right....also, as if it wasn't enough, i don't feel that the phone software is well optimized as well, given that the 3.400 battery has 86 hours endurance rating, seems kinda low.
Jahidx, 28 Jun 2018are you crazy? the only point where op6 beats xiaomi is the design, every other thing is bette... moredude, you serious? the mi8 loses in terms of almost everything to oneplus6.
go get your facts straight before commenting.
mi8 video only 30fps....that is so 2016....
