Note 8 pro user 4 mo, 21 Mar 2020Help please! When using stock launcher the icons disappear and I can't open the app menu unles... moreI change the them on the luncher it worked great or you can install an 3rd party luncher like Nova luncher in it should be fine
Help please! When using stock launcher the icons disappear and I can't open the app menu unless rebooting the phone and even then they just disappear and I can't open any apps unless recent ones from the gesture menu. Phone is updated completely and I had to change launchers, but the MIUI is the best :(. Please help!
An update for an android10 in my RN8pro here in the Philippines during this time of the lockdown is a bit stress reliever. Update please.
I'm using RN8Pro for few months already. Last month it got updated to Android 10 (MIUI Global 18.104.22.168 QGGEUXM) in Bulgaria. After the upgrade I can confirm not a single "stutter", just the opposite - the interface feels even smoother. I can also confirm that on top right corner it says 4G+, although I don't have another phone currently to compare if it gains any performance advantage.
One of the best phones I've ever owned. Pluses: Great pics and videos, expandable storage, earphone plug. Con: No Android 10 upgrade in Hong Kong yet! Come on Xiaomi I feel like an abused orphan!
Good job GAMArena! Now this helped me fixed my eyes on redmi Note 9 Pro Max for upgrade.
We are also interested in Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite long term review since this phone is similarly priced as the RN8P but bearing opposite characteristics(ex. helio vs snapdragon; LCD vs AMOLED; Samsung vs Sony cam sensors, Plastic vs Metal frames, etc.)
Thanks and God bless.
I love this review. 4G+/CA is kinda important to me and it's good to see a review that also emphasize on that particular features. Varying standards of 4G+ implementation means that buying a phone purposely for this feature can be a hit and miss. I hope gsmarena.com will continue to provide this kind of info on all of its future reviews. Believe me it will help us a lot whenever we want to decide on our next phone.
I sidegraded from the Mi9t to the RN8 Pro and I'm so glad that I did. Instantly I had an LCD screen with beautiful, natural colours rather than the blown-out, cartoony reds and oranges from the amoled panel. I also suddenly had far superior battery life a d a phone that had a pleasant heft to it.
My unit is blazing fast at all times and it's a shame that the reviewer found some lag. I also find the speaker more than loud enough with decent sonic integrity at high volumes.
My only slight gripe with the phone is that the wide angle lens struggles if the light isn't perfect but I'm still hoping this will get addressed in a software update as I'm still on Android Pie, global.
For £168, this phone was an absolute steal and the Mediatek processor is blazing fast and sips power. The fact that it has water resistance too at this price point is an absolute winner.
Looking forward to the Redmi Note 10 with 5g and 90hz so won't be upgrading to the 9.
My only problem with note 8 pro is that it gets heated up quickly while playing games :(....
watching youtube on the phone isn't great it has some kinda low res effect...cannot believe redmi hasn't fixed the bug in months. Think it's time to check out Realme phones coz i like realme ui with its stock android look and feel
It goes blank quite often with nothing on screen.
And other end person can not hear me quite often.
Cool that gsmarena made a long term review of RN8P and I think readers would love to have more mid-rangers treated like that.
But OMG who did this review??? It is far far away from the professional approach of gsmarena. Writing that phone has a great performance 80% of time and 20% of time lagging' wff? Does it mean that when using 10 hours, 2 hours is lagging. First of all totally unprofessional and not true statement. I'm using RN8P and have not expirienced any lagging or sluggish time. Moreover performance during daily using is better than S9 (I'm using both Redmi private and S9 for work).
My only problem with the Note 8 Pro is the UI. Im..... not really a fan of xiaomi's UI's. Other than that, great phone.
With It's current price around 300 € Huawei Nova 5T beats everything else in pseudo flagship category and runs around in circles around high end midrangers.
