Imrobin, 02 Sep 2018Can i download and use google services like maps, photos, gmail? If i canÂ’t thn its a no buy for meof course you can !
if you are buying from local retail store then you'll get the global version which already has Google Apps installed .
but if you are directly buying from china then you'll not have google apps already installed !
because google services are banned in China .( not banned in hongkong )
Can i download and use google services like maps, photos, gmail? If i canÂ’t thn its a no buy for me

Pramod Wadekar, 31 Aug 2018I am waiting for Mi 8SE In India when it launches if any body knows reply meThis would have been a great competitor to Nokia notch phones in India.
I do hope they do not outdate the product and then release it globally.
A new member is added to Mi/MiNote series, almost every 6-8 months. 2 months later, its still not available.

Just bought this phone.
- Great 5,8" AMOLED display (great contrast, great black), sharp and vivid as better Samsung's displays, eye-friendly
- Newest, fast and future ready SD710 chipset (QC 4.0, enhanced audio & photography, battery friendly etc.)
- Well built, nice design, also light and very comfortable using one hand
- Good battery life
- Nice features as IR universal blaster, AOD, HDR 10, usb type C, swipe gestures (no buttons), fast charge 3.0/4.0, Android 8.1 + Treble
- Lousy MIUI ROM (no official global yet!), full of chinese bloatware tied with locked BL
- Not bad but still not good camera, could and should be much better, despite low price! Or software algorhytms are bad. Too much noise and bluriness. AI does improve some but not enough.
- Not enough options for display color correction.
- Stupid notch
- One-color LED notification (in 2018, really Xiaomi??)
- Idiotic USB audio adapter.
Verdict: If XIAOMI engineers improve camera trough software (eis, noise), then this phone could be the best buy of 2018! It is very well balanced phone and pretty cheap (around 270 euro now).
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2018Reason why Xiaomi need more powerful chips is because there MiUi is a heavy UI, while Samsung ... moreWell, in the Mi 8 SE it has the same Super Amoled as Samsung devices, and when I mentioned chipsets, I was talking about actual benchmark scores. The Mi 8 SE has scored 174k in antutu while the Galaxy A8 (2018) scores 116k which is the same price as the Mi 8 SE. Same goes with the A2 and Galaxy J8 which are both same price but with 77k difference in antutu score in favor to the A2. Huge difference; granted the Xiaomi A2 runs Android One but the point still stands.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2018Which phone should I buy; Mi 8 SE or A2? And are there better options in the same price range ... moreReason why Xiaomi need more powerful chips is because there MiUi is a heavy UI, while Samsung Grace UX is much more efficient UI, i have been using 1 Samsung & 1 Xiaomi for sometime, i found Samsung is way better than Xiaomi even if the chips is lower range, not forgetting light year advance display & camera.

I've been hearing some mixed opinions regarding updates. Gsmarena review says MIUI has a good update history but some other people say updates are late and bugs take a while to get fixed. Also how does it manage RAM and internal storage?
