It's a good phone with special features. Don't expect much from the camera though. I own a galaxy s10, so I use it as my secondary phone. I will say, its a cheap value for money.
Delta01, 16 Aug 2020- Redmi 8 has received UPDATE within huge file 1.9GB . I am receive Android 10 update my mobile redmi 8
Price it's low
Build quality seems great for the price range
Screen has poor color accuracy, due to low pixel density and massive screen, 720 content seems a little blurred ( my moto g from 2013 it's sharper)
Battery autonomy it's a little low for 5000mah, 24h with normal use( that includes casual gaming, multimedia, browsing, etc)
I miss a notification led I have to constantly turn on the screen to see if I've missed something, yet I have an almost useless Infrared port....( Its 2020 wtf)

Olumzee, 13 Aug 2020Yesterday I received Android 10 on Redmi 8 and that I'll update in the night immediately,... moreIt's using miui 11 or miui 12. Miui 12 has heavy animations but I have seen Xiaomi reducing the animations to minimal in lowe end phones
Belkacem9920, 12 Aug 2020Where are you from? Yesterday I received Android 10 on Redmi 8 and that I'll update in the night immediately, I started hearing people saying in FB that I should download it ASAP if not I'll disappear and i remembered people On Facebook getting updates only later to discover that it vanished.
So without wasting time I downloaded the file which took me an hour plus using MTN Network in Nigeria for a almost 2GB Data it took but it was worth it Which I'll get to in a bit. After I has finished I installed which took me almost 10 mins but before installing I remembered checking my battery it was 89% so when I was done installing it was 87% before that I was downloading the file My battery was 96% - 90% and then I noticed some amazing changes.
The battery now lasts way longer than before, When browsing the web it's faster, playing Games is also a breeze and Man! It is .Some other things I noticed are the my message app and digital wellbeing Features which on android 9 didn't get dark mode on them but with Android 10 it does Also the security feature you see on your home screen has gotten a Face lift now as well as the battery and the SOT ( Screen On Time) .
While most of you using the redmi 8 haven't started downloading the android 10 you better cos you'll miss out and if you received immediately don't waste time before you won't see it again although it will come but will take time.... And oh if You're afraid to download cause of hugs surprise! surprise!! No Bugs it's smooth sailing all the way. Xiaomi really too their time in making it stable for us and hoping other Redmi models will also get a stable update.
Xiaomi 4 Ever👍👍👍💯♥️
