Whackcar, 20 Feb 2019I do. Single Core scores are terrible. It is actually behind last year's Exynos. That's really... moreWhen looking for improvement, look at the previous model from the same company. Samsung uses wide cores like apples in their mongoose cores.

bla, 23 Feb 2019There is EIS in video up to 30fpsThank you. EIS good enough then?
zamroni1, 23 Feb 2019it's not waterproof. that's why it can be cheaper than flagship of samsung and AppleYeah because making it waterproof costs 600$

Gary, 22 Feb 2019No OIS, but video sample is very stable. Strange. There is EIS in video up to 30fps
How's haptic feedback on this phone?
is it as good as the Pixel 3 or LG V40?

It is the same with a pc,it is better that you have a highend graphics card,then only a highend cpu.Your pc will run smoother with a highend graphics card than only a highend cpu.But if you have both,it is even better.Gfx bench is only cpu performance and Antutu is cpu(processor)and gpu(graphics card)!!!
Why snapdragon chipset have less single core multi core and gfx than competitors(in this case A12) but higher antutu ? Are they cheating? I noticed this in many snapdragon chipsets
Gary, 22 Feb 2019In Hong Kong, I saw Mi 8 on sale for 2100 HKD (US $267), 128G version. I live in HK. It is about 3000 HK$ ($380) here in HK for a new mi8 128GB. Refurbished 128G ones goes for $300 that is about 2400HK$. Either you are looking at stolen ones or just plain fake ones. Yes! They do make fake Xiaomi phones. Go figure!
Dan, 21 Feb 2019Just checked AliExpress too and Mi 8 starts at $328 there.In Hong Kong, I saw Mi 8 on sale for 2100 HKD (US $267), 128G version.

Erht, 21 Feb 2019There's a different type of stabilization, a closed-loop voice control monitor which have his ... moreYes, I've read about Closed-loop VCM tech they employed. But it seems that this tech only helps the autofocus function of the camera. Meaning, it will be able to keep track and focus objects much faster. This is useful in well-lit shots where objects can easily be monitored by the sensor, which in turn will communicate to the Lens and the VCM. So yes, it still does help in the stabilization 'like an OIS'... but that doesn't seem to help in long-exposure shots where camera sensor stability itself is a major concern. Long-exposure shots(like the Night Mode) has little concern on the 'autofocus' function of the camera, where the VCM is most applicable. On the other hand, Long-exposure shots concerns more about the stability of the sensor - which considers the entire frame of the shot to be steady. LE shots are less on autofocus and more on sensor stabilization, given that it considers the entire frame of the shot(like landscape mode) and not a focus point alone, even though they take multiple pictures and stack it to produce a final output. This translates to subpar quality of night time shots. Im looking forward to this phone. So i hope Xiaomi will optimize its camera software to maximize the benefit of employing the close-loop VCM tech.
