The dual GPS is cool, but everything else is a blatant copy of Apple. Shame.
. . . and Xiaomi promised top benchmark results
"Snapdragon 845 chipset was not a surprise,
the Mi 8's staggering 301,472 score on Antutu sure was one.
If the result is real, it will be the highest ever reached . . ."
No, it was not real,
just a joke.
I'm seriously consider to buy this, but for me thermal throttle is the most serious cons.
Since, for a long time (like 1/2 years), phone function(such as GPS, CPU performance, etc) can degrade significantly if thermal management is bad.
I also confuse about dual GPS, since techtablets.com said that it was a joke.. GPS performance of this mi 8 is awful.
is somebody already using it??
stunning camera image quality a close competitor to galaxy flagships and the audio quality also taken care of, well not bad.
Honestly disappointing phone compared to how much the mi 6 was a better in every way than the mi 5.
I'm completely against omitting features that some people may be reliant on.
when its available in india ?
Rear camera result is solid in both good and low light, even better than S9+, which I consider the best phone camera at this point, even better than P20 Pro.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2018I agree. Xiaomi is becoming stupid with its flagship releases. Small battery, no sd card slot,... moregood think huawei is listening to what people like, it's just that they dont have a great processor
There's "one" cons that reads like this:
- No 3.5mm jack, no microSD slot, no IP rating, no stereo speakers, no wireless charging
I think you should post it like this:
- No 3.5mm jack
- No microSD slot
- No IP rating
- No stereo speakers
- No wireless charging
The colours look oversaturated even with AI turned off.
"Well, it's the company's 8-year anniversary, and it must be celebrated."
So funny )), 8 years, Is this number has some special meaning for Chinese people? Why not 10 years?
Very interested in this phone or SE version. But need sone advice how much RAM do I need? 4/6 gb? Now I play PUGB in mi 5 3gb RAM and its still enough. Please advice guys.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2018Mine has antutu score 265k...Hi, is your mi8 comes with global rom?
Nix@, 28 Jun 2018Thinking about upgrading my Mi Max 2 for this🤔🤔Don't. You'll be surely disappointed. Compared to the Mi Max 2, this has small screen, poor battery life, no sd card slot, no headphone jack, no ir blaster, no FM radio. The only thing it has that the Mi Max 2 doesn't have is the notch and a flagship processor that's only good for bragging rights but no practical use for the majority of phone users who use their phones for Facebook and media consumption.
Geric.770, 28 Jun 2018Maybe its life is finally over bro. :( Nooooooo how can something horrible happen. RIP Aloe 2018
lol my comment was deleted?
antutu268.5k, same as my one plus
camera is better than s8plus (thats only good camera i can compare) and way above one plus 6 , one plus smells budget in every pic, same is the video details.
no headphone jack
amoled (i prefer lcd)
terrible audio recording (hope that fixes with miui 10)
and ugly iphone x design,
i am using this over s8 plus and one plus 6 because of miui, it offers best standby time in any android by far which is important to me , also stock is boring.
what i regret
i could have purchased lg v30 fro about 80 dollars cheaper , that would be more versatile phone.
I think benchmark test for mi8 not that low for the sd 845 chipset. Maybe the unit that editor testing using custom rom software unstabble. i saw on youtube, mi8 tested average got more than 250k.
"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.
