mimi, 08 Nov 2020is redmi note 8 still a good phone for this year or nah? Yes
Zrell, 09 Nov 2020Is it still good to buy this phone right now for gaming purposes?Depends on your expectations. There are better chipsets than Snapdragon 665 for gaming in this price, but it's also fine.
I recommend going for minimum of Snapdragon 710/712 or Helio G90T for good gaming experience.
But if you can settle for lower graphics and about 40FPS in games like PUBG (which is good), then:
Snapdragon 675 are also great.
Snapdragon 665 is a bit less powerful than these, and will give 35-40FPS. So it also offers reasonably smooth gaming experience.
Just make sure you only buy 4GB RAM variant or more.

I got update to android 10 miui 12. I live in Serbia, phone is note 8 64gb, not bought in official store but online
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2020Why would we buy a Xiaomi phone just to waste time flashing a rom instead of buying a good Sam... moreBecause only Samsung S & Note series are good, which are quite expensive.
I don't know about their latest phones, but I've used Samsung Galaxy A51 & A50. Their camera quality is comparable to phones that cost only 30-50% of their price.
In fact, I went to dinner with friends and we preferred taking pictures with Realme 3 & Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 instead of Galaxy A51.
That's how Samsung compares to Chinese brands.
Their chipsets are also always way too weak for its price (I can buy Snapdragon 835 & 845 in A51 price).
I can get similar or better performance than A51 in 50% of its price from Realme phones.
Xiaomi has its own share of problems. I don't disagree with that. Their MIUI is heaviest Android OS & always lag on 3GB RAM phones, Consumes most Battery, offer Lowest Performance and have Most Bugs than OS of Huawei, Realme, Samsung, Oppo, OnePlus and even Infinix.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2020Yes, Xiaomi just sucks in software. Redmi Note 8 has no software upgrade till now but the chea... moreThat's why telling not to take Chinese crappy phones. I'm using Galaxy a20 and i got in june. Still you guys didn't get? What a sad story. Poor in developing software, and i think they said global version released and almost everyone didn't get the update.

Do some research. Ultra wide lens wont work with custom roms sometimes. And other features too.

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2020Imo it's only worth it to buy flagship Samsung phones. You can get phone with better hard... moreBetter?
Is that why we still don't have Android 10 but midrange Samsung does?
Is that why notifications only work when you disable a bunch of settings but work out of the box with any Samsung?
Is that why we can't uninstall or disable over 15 Apps but you can with Samsung?
Well, this is the last time I will buy the "better" brand then.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2020Noone said flagshipImo it's only worth it to buy flagship Samsung phones. You can get phone with better hardware at lower prices if you buy from xiaomi or other brands.
