My only issue with this phone is no signal at my home. I use dual simcard with different telcos and both have no signal compared to my other phones. Anyone having this problem?
Help me guys, after reset my phone (redmi 8) the home screen top bar like battery and network has moved on bottom front camera instead of being line of front camera line..

Loco , 24 Dec 2022Mine is having ghost touch problem please what's the solutionI am using a Redmi 8 since 2020 January, i have been having this issue+some others too.
When you have ghost issue, lock the phone wipe the screen and then try using it
Works for me
Loco , 24 Dec 2022Mine is having ghost touch problem please what's the solutionMost likely a hardware issue with LCD
This is not a good device model but it's okay, the only problem is ghost touch, maybe the use of a screen protector and case... the software and the comfort of the change effect seem a bit stuck....

I don't write reviews normally but i will say the full truth here,
Been using the phone since Nov 2019 (3 years) since it was released, and i would definitely recommend it to any of my friends and family even recently, it cost me 200$ back then but now it worth about 130$ but in Turkey here still cost 200$ until this day because of IMEI registration to GSM signals upon reaching Turkey, so the value is still the same after 3 years.
About reliability this phone fell on floor more than all my previous phones but never had malfunction or a break of screen, still working amazingly, (been using it 2 years without screen protection) still no harm.
As for speed its . more than average unless the memory is full it could be laggy and some apps turns off automatically when Switching apps (frustrating).
I got 265gb sd card for 25$ recently to save apps and media but (NO APPS CAN BE INSTALLED OR MOVED TO SD *NEVER) SD card only good for media storing.
I have 64gb rom/4gb ram type, if you had 32gb its a nightmare for you i guess.
Best pros is that its long time battery, only noticing running out recently (upon using ofcourse)
GSM, BLUETOOTH, MOBILE DATA, HOTSPOT, FLASH, CAMERA, WIDGETS works fine
Games only mid , not for pro gamers.
Camera quality is fair (compared to MegaPixels of new phones)
Hope this clarify most important aspects about redmi 8.

FYI, my mother is still using it and she loves it. Battery lasts for 2-3 days for her.
Slow and locked up even when no apps running. Not blocking, allows too much garbage build up in cache. Average camera.
im still using it perfectly.... what a master phone from a chinese company just love this one
I've been using this for about 30 months, so far it's not that much of a problem, it's just that sometimes it's a little slow even though I still have a lot of phone memory and also don't open many applications, and it heats up quickly, if it's too hot often my signal and cellular data disappears automatically. suddenly
*I'm using miui 11 & android 9 so far and didn't think to update it ^^
