The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T is the European version of the popular Redmi Note 8 and the latest addition to the budget series.
The Redmi Note lineup needs no presentation - it has always delivered good smartphones with sustained performance and long-lasting battery life on a bargain price. The Redmi Note 8T is an enhanced version of the Redmi Note 8, and we very much believe the 8T will repeat the Note 8 success.
So, the Redmi Note 8T is a Note phone done by the book - it has a large 6.3 IPS LCD screen with a small notch, a promising Snapdragon 665 chip, some whooping camera count on the back, and a beefy 4,000 mAh battery within.
Naturally, the Redmi Note 8T uses a dual Gorilla Glass 5 shell and its back is painted in some trending gradient colors - Starscape Blue and Moonlight White, but you can also opt for a more traditional Moonshadow Grey that is not as casual and is easy on the eyes.
The Redmi Note 8T adds NFC option over the regular Note 8 and comes packed with an 18W fast charger (up from 10W). It runs on Android 9 with MIUI 10, and while MIUI 11 is coming at some point, it's not available just yet.
The Redmi Note 8T also offers basic splash-protection via the so-called special nano-coating, so there is nothing missing on the 8T. Realme also offers splash-resistant phones at the same price bracket, and it will be one very tough choice if it boils down to Redmi vs. Realme in the end.
The Redmi Note 8T box contains the usual - the phone itself, a USB-C cable, and an 18W charger. This is a bit different from the Note 8 - it is bundled with a slower 10W adapter.
There is also a semi-transparent silicone case in the box, which is appreciated. What's not on the Redmi Note 8T is a factory-applied screen protector. Maybe it will come with extra shielding in some markets. Maybe it won't.
Personally I would prefer the Redmi Note 8 pro as it has outstanding battery life and good specs. But at the mid tier price range I don't think the note 8t makes the cut.
