I've had this phone since 2018... didn't drop it once, always in the protective case... it cracked sitting all by itself in my bag doing nothing in 40 degrees C heat. Small crack right around the front facing camera and on the inside of the glass, all smooth on the outside. This was less than 1 year since buying it and it was so cheap I didn't bother with the warranty.
Yesterday it pissed its pants and died. It was on the desk, I was sleeping, wake up, come to the desk to check my notifications. after unlocking it, screen starts blinking like a bad ribbon connection and the screen dies. I could hear my notifications so I knew the phone was still working, but the replacement screen is more expensive than the whole phone.
Either way, you get what you paid for... crap, good crap while it lasts but still crap.
Used this phone since Dec 2018 until today, battery drains too fast, but my phone has already fallen in the toilet bowl 2 times and in the river 1 time still working without any problem. Camera is still quite nice. Hope will get a new update (android&MIUI).

Xiaomi Mi 8 lite also kbown as Xiaomi Mi 8 youth or Mi 8X. Mine is 128gb ROM/6gb RAM. For almost 3years this September 2021. This was updated to Android 10 QKQ1 Version. MIUI 12.0.3, 2020-08-01 Android security update. What i can say is, phone is very stable. Software was improved. Resolution is awesome. Camera was all perfect, front and rear and even the night mode was improved a lot. Refresh rate was perfect tho 60hZ only. Battery can last me 1day and a half for normal usage without games. Hardware was still great as both front and back is Gorilla Glass. Charging was a bit improved and quicker as honestly, from 20%, i can fully charge in 50 minutes only as i am doing that almost 2-3 times a week. Xiaomi phones, perfect 10 points out of 10!

Love, love this phone since March 2019. 6gb/128gb, global version. Fast, great user interface (I was originally pretty skeptical about MiUI, but it's actually much better than plain Android. For example, it offers me to copy a security code from any message when signing in to any service, so I don't have to even open the text). Great manufacturing and materials. Excellent, lightning speed fast fingerprint access Lots of various cases on AliExpress. Great camera - I finally was able to give up my standalone DLSR. Now looking for a similar model for my son. If they were still selling it, I'd definitely buy one again!
Gustavo, 25 Sep 2020I found this terminal on sale at $ 140. It seems like an opportunity to me although I doubt th... moreYes, still a good device. Fast, good sound, quality, notification led. The battery could be better.
Don´t have jack but provide an adapter in the box.
With that price there is no doubt. Have Android 10 and received now MIUI 12 global stable.
Also, the notifications in the calendar app - reminders sometimes fails, don´t ring. Is the only drawback I have.
I found this terminal on sale at $ 140. It seems like an opportunity to me although I doubt the duration of its battery ... Do you still recommend it today for that price? Thanks for your help in advance

Great phone for value. Nearly 2 Years old and received Android 10. No bugs and still smooth.
The Phone is awesome in Design and Specs good camera could be better at night specifically. Also the Night mode it has is the worst ever I seen which make pics distorted. The battery is OK but not Good it could be better with efficient battery saver which itself doesn't work great until u have to change the individual battery restriction for each app manually. The network signals it catches are strong than the Nokia or oppo phones in here in Pakistan. Battery drain heavily on games and 4G browsing slightly better on WiFi but should be improved. The Miui 11 is the best UI ever great features and themeing whole areas. Overall its a great budget phone. Better than F9pro in cam.
