Xiaomi Redmi 8 Price, Specs, FAQs

Is Xiaomi Redmi 8 worth buying?

As the counterpart of the Redmi 8A, the Redmi 8 is well-engineered with tons of features to offer for a budget phone. It comes in a sturdy build with a premium-looking design that carries a glossy case. On the front, the Redmi 8 sports a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch on top, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The back case can be seen with an easily accessible fingerprint sensor and a dual-camera setup.

Internally, the Redmi 8 is fitted with a Snapdragon 439 octa-core chipset and a minimum of 3GB of RAM, which delivers a pretty average performance for simple tasks and switching between apps, but not satisfactory enough for heavy gaming like PUBG Mobile. However, like many Android phones out there these days, the Redmi 8 has dedicated dual-SIM slots and a microSD card slot. Powered by Android 9.0, the phone receives frequent software updates for performance optimisations, ensuring the phone’s system runs smoothly.

The biggest selling point of the Xiaomi Redmi 8 is definitely its massive battery capacity of 5000mAh. Given that it’s paired with an entry-level processor, the phone’s power can last throughout the day with additional hours to spare on mixed, casual use. Once the battery is depleted, it won’t take long for the battery to be fully charged up either, thanks to its 18W fast charging support.

Marketed as a budget smartphone, it’s reasonable that the Redmi 8 does not offer the most advanced cameras. Featuring a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor as seen in the Google Pixel 3a series, its image quality doesn’t stack up against that of the Pixel 3a series as its software lacks elements that can make images look superb. Nevertheless, users can easily do some touch-up on their shots with Xiaomi’s AI enhancements. The camera struggles a little in low-light conditions or indoor settings - images appear with some noticeable noise and a lack of detail.

So, back to the question of whether the Redmi 8 is worth a purchase, it is a solid model that can perform all kinds of tasks with no problem. While its camera quality is mediocre, its superior battery performance makes up for that weakness. So if photography is not your main concern, the Redmi 8 works just fine in handling everyday tasks without running out of battery juice by a matter of hours.
