I managed to flash mine from Global(11.0.6.) -> EAA(latest)
-> Global(12.5.1). I think there was no difference between EAA and Global other than no ads. I flast mine because I want to root it the safest way possible and I did.
(Secret): Gamepad Panda Pro an app for key mapping will activate itself when you are rooted which is very helpful.

But I do plan to upgrade to a better phone since now i got the money to buy something better. But for Note 8 Pro, probably will bring it repair shop (to replace the degraded battery) and keep it as my spare phone.
I got my redmi note 8 pro around end of 2019 and I'm still using it right now and still good for me but i thinking of upgrading my phone right now bcoz sometimes my phone becomes laggy and sometimes its overheating .
I have this phone since 2020 its sooo good I really recommend this one. Camera is good but when you already took a photo it kinda blures so thats not a plus.
Doesnt lag,you can also play games. All I can say I recommend this one

But then again, I take real good care of my devices (except when I throw them and drop them, intentionally, a lot)
I gave this phone as a gift to my dad in Feb 2020. After 2 years of usage the phone's screen just started acting up like everything's unreadable. Even the OS became buggy too.
Very disappointed in the phone. I just gave my dad a Oneplus 9 afterwards.
Using it from February, 2020... working fine and smooth!!
Eggward, 11 May 2022I bought this phone on january this year, for only 115$ and the nfc is like 163$ i cant afford... moreSame for me you can even play APEX Mobile on Max Graphics at 40fps that's crazy for a 2019 phone.
Still using it since Nov 2019, so far so good.
Rogerbak, 30 Apr 2022Hey im only buying this phone bcz i need better device for codm,is this good device?overheatin... moreIt is good but old. If you want you can up to POCO X3 pro or F3 or Xiaomi 11T Pro
I bought this phone on january this year, for only 115$ and the nfc is like 163$ i cant afford more so i bought rn8pro i must say it's a beast i am very impressed i can play genshin now on 60hz and semi high graphics, codm on max just needed to play with a fan tho, i lower codm to 60hz and high graphics to play without a fan, not the cooling fan I'm talkin about the big desk like fan i can't afford a gaming fan yet, it's a pretty satisfying experience for me.
Rogerbak, 30 Apr 2022Hey im only buying this phone bcz i need better device for codm,is this good device?overheatin... moreJust buy Poco X3 pro, it's better, this phone sucks.. I have it and when I play codm it lags, even on medium graphics, so I have to set on low and it still lags, it says I'm using Max framerate and high graphics but I still get 40-50 FPS, not even 60, reaching 60 FPS in this phone playing codm is like a miracle.
Rogerbak, 30 Apr 2022Hey im only buying this phone bcz i need better device for codm,is this good device?overheatin... moreMine was bought in 2019 and still works fine. I have been playing Asphalt 9 from the day I brought, in 2022 I have started playing BGMI, CODM and surprise to see that it works great. But some time it shows some fps drops during gameplay cuz I have been playing since I bought it and the fps drop can be ignored it occurs for about only 3-4 secs in a gameplay. If you are a normal user than it is the phone that you can do your daily tasks.
AND REMEMBER IT IS THE 1ST PHONE TO HAVE 64MP REAR CAMERA.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2022I use it for CODM and genshin without any issueHey im only buying this phone bcz i need better device for codm,is this good device?overheating,is it 60hz or 120hz and how does it perform? I hope u would answer my friend wanna sold me newlike one 120e.

Kev Gat, 17 Apr 2022Bought this phone in january 2020. after 2 years and 3 months, I can say the battery is at 78%... moreYou shouldn't update. People are all crazy about updates but the best thing to do is keep a software version that works best. I still have the same software from a year and a half ago and the phone almost works like new.
I purchased this phone 2 years back, Still working excellent like a new one...Good model
I have this phone since 2019 and it's still performing great ! I don't regret buying it at all :D
Bought this phone in january 2020. after 2 years and 3 months, I can say the battery is at 78% health, the connectivity is problematic with WiFi and sim data occasionally, MIUI is terrible with every update. Hardware wise this is was a beast in it's time for the money. All in all I had a great time with this phone. Now it's time to sell it and buy a new one!
Still no 4G+, LTE Advanced!
My old MOTO X4 have 4G+, LTE Advanced, on the exact same network with the exact same sim card, with more than double the download speed than my Redmi Note 8 Pro!
For a long term phone, this is underrated.
It was a big deal at the time I know but it should remain one because it is worth it.
