Xiaomi Redmi Note 8: Is It A Good Upgrade From The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7?

It seems that the Chinese phone maker, Xiaomi is unstoppable. Started to manufacture budget phones in 2013 with the first-ever Redmi phone. The next year, Xiaomi's popularity sky-rocketed that in Singapore, it sold the second Redmi phone in just eight minutes. In 2015, the Redmi Note 3 was launched. The next year, the brand decided to expand even further by making a Proline and also released the Redmi Note 4 and the Redmi 4. In January of 2017, the company launched Redmi Note 4X which became a huge success as it had a Snapdragon 625 chipset. Before the end of the same year, Xiaomi added Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus to its roster of products. In 2018, the brand is still striving to release as many phones as they can. They did succeed by unveiling the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi 5 Pro, Redmi S2, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 Pro, and the Redmi Note 6 Pro. This year, the brand still made so many unveiling that people could not keep up anymore. There was the Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, and now the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro.

Now, let's talk more about the Redmi Note 8 vanilla version. It was released together with its Pro version last August 29 in China and will be able worldwide starting this month of September.


Design

Dissecting the smartphone further, we look at the configuration. It measures at 158.3 x 75.3 x 8.4 millimeters (6.23 x 2.96 x 0.33 inches) and weighs at 190 grams or (6.70 ounces). The front is made out of glass while the other parts of the tablet's body are made out of polycarbonate with metallic frames. You can buy the Redmi Note 8 in two colorways of Crystal Green and Crystal Blue. The paint job is a gradient color one with an S wave in the middle.

At the bottom, you get the USB Type-C port, the 3.5mm headphone jack, and the lonely down-firing speaker. To your right side holds the power button, as well as, the volume rocker. The left side has the slot for Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by). On top of the device, you get IR blaster and a microphone. In front, the dewdrop notch houses the 13-megapixel sensor, where the LED notification light is also placed and at the very bottom, a very small branding is written of the thin chin. At the back, the quad-camera setup is aligned vertically next to the LED flash, with no fingerprint scanner and only a small branding at the bottom left side.

The shape and the dimension were kind of similar to the Redmi Note 7. The back is quite wide and fiddling with the Redmi Note 8 with one hand is not an easy task, but if you are talking about playing games in portrait, then it will serve you well.


Display

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 sports an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 6.3-inches in size, with 16M colors, 81.7% screen-to-body ratio, FHD+ 1080 x 2340-pixel resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 409 ppi density, and protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Another no upgrade specification for this device is the display resolution. It is still the same as its predecessor.


Performance

It is powered by a Qualcomm SDM665 Snapdragon 665 chipset with 11nm lithography, an octa-core chipset with 4x2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver CPU speed. The Redmi Note 8's CPU is them married to the Adreno 610 for your graphic needs.

This combination is powerful enough. To know more about the Redmi Note 8 's performance, here are some benchmark scores: The GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core version) gained 5,686 points while the GeekBench 4.1 (single-core version) has 1,531 points. The 3DMark SSE 3.1 Unlimited version has 1,131 points. The GFX 3.0 Manhattan (1080p offscreen version) got 20 points, the GFX 3.1 Manhattan (1080p offscreen version) got 13 points, the GFX 3.0 Manhattan (onscreen version) got 34 points, the GFX 3.1 Manhattan (onscreen version) got 27 points, and the GFX 3.1 Car scene (onscreen version) got 13 points. While the AnTuTu version 7 garnered up to 140,633 points.

Same as the other specs mentioned above, the performance upgrade in this unit is not so astonishing compared to that of the Redmi Note 7 Pro to its successor the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Gaming default is set on balance settings and medium graphics. You can improve it by bumping it to HDR without slowing and lagging the phone, but you should be warned about the device getting pretty warm, pretty quick.

The phone runs on an Android 9.0 (Pie) operating system with an MIUI 10 overlay that will be updated to an MIUI 11 in the future. Memory-wise, the Redmi Note 8 is supported by either a 64GB internal storage plus 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage plus 6GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage plus 6GB RAM options. Both the ROMs can be further expanded with the use of a microSD up to 256GB.


MIUI 10 Skin Features

  • Autofill Support
  • Android phone has been getting smarter and smarter thanks to overlays like this. This support will help you save time by automatically helping you fill password securely and easily.

  • AI
  • This phone is AI-powered with its AI voice assistant. The preloaded feature will also help you reduce app loads and predicting apps to launch and preload instantly. The AI-trait of the overlay also helps with taking images with bokeh effect.

  • App Management
  • This feature will guide and inform you of the latest updates, replicated applications, app permission grants, and batch deletion in just a tap of your fingerprint.

  • Android Pie-like Volume Slider and Notification
  • Just like the MIUI taking inspiration from iOS, it also used some from Android Pie. The notification shade is that of a bold white background found in the Android setting. It also comes with features such as adjust ringer, media, and alarm volume individually. It also has silent and DND buttons, as well as a Countdown timer which comes handy with people on meetings forgetting to set their phone into the silent mode.

  • Gesture Support
  • This feature is one of the newest additions to this overlay. It runs smooth and does not have any stutter, even if it's in the beta stage as of the moment. It is quite iOS-inspired with the swiping from the right to the left edge of the screen gesture and holding the app to go back to previously opened ones.

  • Menu Update
  • One of the MIUI 10 fan upgrade favorites, you can swipe up and hold to see a recent menu, which will be displayed in mosaic style pattern. This update allows you to swiftly switch in between several applications. You can also look into the background by pressing and holding on to the app card.

  • MIUI Lab
  • MIUI Lab offers a variety of that can be experimental. One of the things included in this feature is the Taplus, Find photos in Gallery, Super-resolution, and Car mode.

  • Picture-in-Picture Mode
  • Introduced in the Android Oreo operating system, this feature was also adapted to the MIUI 10. PIP is said to be a special type of multi-window mode people use for video playback. It lets the user watch a video in a small window pinned to a corner of the screen while navigating between apps or browsing content on the main screen.

  • Quick Pay shortcut in Quick Ball
  • This feature might not work with other versions, but the Chinese one does have it. This feature lets the user pay quickly by sending then money asap. It is usable for the WeChat and Alipay. Some rumors say that the global version might get one too if the WhatsApp and Paytm payment support is compatible.

  • Screen Recording
  • Not a lot of people use this feature, but it still nice that it was improved by allowing the device to record system sound also. This will be useful for those who like to record the game while playing it.


Camera

The camera in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is very promising. It has four sensors are the back with the primary one being the wide sensor while others have an ultra-wide-angle lens. The primary sensor is a 48-megapixel with f/1.8 aperture, with ½-inch, 0.8µm, PDAF. The secondary one is an 8-megapixel with f/2.2 aperture, is 13mm (ultrawide), is ¼-inch and with 1.12µm. The third one is a 2-megapixel with f/2.4, aperture, 1/5-inch, and with 1.75µm dedicated macro camera. To wrap-up the rear-camera setup, the 2-megapixel with f/2.4 aperture, 1/5-inch, and is with 1.75µm depth sensor. These cameras have LED flash, HDR, and panorama features. It captures videos at 2160-pixel@30 frames per second, 1080-pixel @30/60/120 frames per second, and the 720-pixel@96 frames per second with gyro-EIS.

Selfie-wise, the front-facing sensor is a 13-megapixel with f/2.0 aperture and has video capability of 1080-pixel @ 30 frames per second. It has features such as HDR and panorama. The images produced by the smartphone are quite decent. The images, even outdoors, are punchy enough with the help of the HDR software although some people might find it oversaturated, lacking in details, or the poor autofocus.

The overall camera performance needs more sharpness. Images produced looks flat and dull. The video needs some image stabilization and the low-light outputs are quite noisy and grainy, even on night mode.


Battery

Packed with up to 4,000mAh of battery, the Redmi Note 8 comes with a fast battery charging adapter of 18-watt. It would take more than two hours to fully recharge it from zero percent which is kind of a long time for people who needs to be constantly on the phone or on the go. For the PC Mark Work 2.0 battery life test, it garnered 14 hours and 25 minutes score. That is a good score considering the price.


Connectivity

For the connectivity, it still needs to wait for a 5G band. For the time being, these bands are good enough. GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 for 2G, HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100 for 3G, and LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 8(900), 38(2600), 40(2300), 41(2500) for 4G. The device also can be at the maximum speed of HSPA 42.2/11.5 Mbps, LTE-A.

It has a Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac connection with a specific absorption rate of 0.26 W/kg (head) and 1.00 W/kg (body). This SAR rating is to measure the rate of which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field. This is very important although a lot of people do not have any clue about it. The heat that the device emits is absorbed by our bodies, so we need to know how much heat generation a device has if we want to use it for long periods of time near our body.


Sensors

Communication-wise, the Redmi Note 8 offers the following: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, A2DP, LE, A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS, Infrared port, FM radio, Fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass. There is NFC available but only work for the Chinese version as of the moment.


Difference between the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

First, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is much bigger than the vanilla Redmi Note 8. The Pro variant also sports a different design with the cameras sitting in the middle while the vanilla one is aligned at the left side of the backside. Another difference is the main camera selection, the Redmi Note 8 Pro has 64-megapixel instead of the 48-megapixel that the normal Redmi Note 8 has. The battery life and capacity of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is much larger than the Redmi Note 8 by 500mAh. In addition, there is a difference in the hardware, Redmi Note 8 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, while MediaTek Helio G90T processor. With all these difference in the specifications, the price of the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro is understandably different. The Redmi Note 8 will carry a price tag of 4GB RAM + 64GB for 999 Yuan which is approximately PHP 7,344, the 6GB + 64GB storage model costs 1199 Yuan which is approximately PHP 8,814, and lastly the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model comes for 1399 yuan which is approximately PHP 10,284.

Sad to say but with very minimal upgrades from the Redmi Note 7, it would probably better to save a little more money and go for the Redmi Note 8 Pro edition instead. Why? It because the Pro has a better processor, better design, better camera, and bigger screen size.
