⚠️ Don't buy! Good on paper but too bad in performance ⚠️
9 December 2019
Redmi has been a prominent smartphone brand which has given a quality product at a pocket-friendly price range. I have a lot of expectation from Xiaomi. I have used almost 4 of their smartphone in last 2 Years but truely disappointed with Note 8.
I Won't use the complex word & would like to make the review very simple & to the point.
The Negative things of Redmi Note 8 are:-
(1) 😔 Battery drains very fast if you're using Wifi, low signal area & of course while gaming like PUBG & COD. Needs to recharge after 6-8 hours. But 18W Fast charging will help you to charge quickly but that doesn't solve the entire problem.
(2) 😡 Can't disable pre-installed apps. Lots of annoying ads & Can't give these phone to someone new to android or smartphone (eg. Parents because of unnecessary ads & you need to be very careful to handle them).
(4) 💥 Flashlight very poor ( Note 5 Pro, A3 & Note 8 Pro has better flash).
(5) 👀 Unnecessarily forces to use location in all apps (which is most annoying). Why is Mi so much interested in our location?
(6) 📷 The Quad camera works fine but zoom doesn't make much difference. Good for normal use & Justify the price segment.
(7) 🤮 Everyone tries to make UI & Design as simple to operate but Xiaomi MiUi is so disgusting & difficult to operate.
(8) 🤕 Apps crash here and there. I hope they will consider this in upcoming updates.
(9) 🔥 Heating issue while charging the phone & while using it for even 30 minutes.
⚫ Overall: It is a nice phone for average use but if you're amazed by its so-called features & you think that it can survive your high-end requirement then be aware it is not for you.
