Smooth and silky performance and better speed of 439 Sdragon. Worth the money, if you want gaming this will not be a bad choice. For heavy users battery will be a good option and fast charging works well. Vibrant and firm looking not too fancy. All in all excellent phone for the price.
Redmi 8A has no blinking light notification. So light during charging and no notification for missed call or sms unless one unlocks the screen. Standard feature in most basic smartphones but missing from Redmi 8A!
PaulC, 27 Dec 2019Out of the box with MIUI 10 the fast charging did not work at all for me. After updating to MI... moreI want to ask that my redmi 8 is updated on miui 11 but still takes 2:50 hrs for battery to charge with fast charger...
Does hard reset will work??
i buy a rdmi8a it's very good phone you can play many games with high graphique it's better than a20 i think this phone just need a finger emprinte and the camera is very good she come with AI it's a cheap phone you need to buy them
Hey guys. which phone is do you think is more price-worthy and better for me? Galaxy A20 or Redmi 8A or Nlokia 3.2?
also it`s important for me to have no lags as possible and support future android updates (which i think all of these 3 phone has) and of course the display size and picture quality (i`m a movie and ebook reader guy)
i am so disappointed i was about to purchase this phone but the comments am seeing are not encouraging so i will backoff thanks
I bought brand new Xiami Redmi 8A. two months ago. Flash light ( torch ) is blinking continuously. The phone is not charging at all. As a new user of Xiaomi I am so disappointed.
I can't recommend you to buy this phone
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2019Lightning cable? Are you sure you are using a Xiaomi device?Actually it's the Anker powerline+ braided cable and not lightning, sorry for the confusion. Anyways it's far superior to the crappy charger/cable that comes with the 8A
Out of the box with MIUI 10 the fast charging did not work at all for me. After updating to MIUI 11 and hard reset of phone, the fast charging now works perfectly. Using an Anker 18w nano charger with lightning cable it only takes 2 hours flat to go from 5% to 100%. With MIUI 10 it took 2 hours 50 minutes.
Beloy, 22 Nov 2019Just wondering... is it true that the battery capacity of the phone is 5000mAh?Yes
Does your display have a yellowish tint when you go to Settings, Display, Color scheme, and choose Original instead of Auto?
Overall for this price phone is very good.
I just bought this on 12:12 Flashsale, and figured out Redmi 8A that sold officially in Indonesia has different back camera sensor. Instead use IMX363 as wrote on specs, they use omnivision_13b10i after check it on Settings > About > All Specs > Triple Tap on Kernel version > Version Information (Hardware Info).
I'm so disappointed, I wish it would replace my Xperia XZ as my daily driver, well seems like I must bring these Redmi and Sony Xperia together.
So far, I'm impressed with Redmi 8A long-last battery. Combined with QuickCharge 3.0 is perfect for a full-day working.
SL_sami, 28 Nov 2019Pubg is too leg to this .I don't no what's the reason. Anyone know the reason please tell me. These phones are not intended for gaming. Consider buying Redmi Note 7 or better models for at least fair experience.
We need review from Gsmarena. Please add a battery stats.
Do NOT buy this phone.
I bought a Redmi 8A, used it for two weeks. and sold it, and bought a Redmi 8.
And from what I understand,
8A wasn't that bad. But,
-8A is a little bit thicker & heavier than Redmi 8.. Redmi 8 feels great in hands.
-Redmi 8's camera is way better than 8A's.
I'm totally content with the Redmi 8.
If you are looking forward to buy a Redmi 8A. Spend a bit more and buy a Redmi 8, instead.
DamDSx, 12 Nov 2019The phone has been out for a few months.... How have you been using it for years???Haha
How about the camera..??
