Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is quite an interesting phone. Sure it’s missing an AMOLED display and in-display fingerprint sensor as the Realme phones it will be up against, but the Note 8 Pro gets the basics just right and if the gaming and camera performance can keep up with the expectations, the new N...

It is not the best phone in town, though, but it’s not meant to be. It is a mid-range device, priced better than most mid-range devices, and it packs some serious bang for your buck. Mid-range competition is fiercer than ever, yet the Redmi Note 8 Pro still manages to stand out of the pack and crown...

The Redmi Note 8 Pro gets a lot right: the Helio G90T is a great addition on the hardware front, as is the 64MP camera and 20MP front shooter.

Sure it’s missing an AMOLED display and in-display fingerprint sensor as the Realme phones it will be up against, but the Note 8 Pro gets the basics just right and if the gaming and camera performance can keep up with the expectations, the new Note would qualify as an easy recommendation for its price.

Same great value, same old software drawbacks

from Android Central

The Redmi Note 8 Pro gets a lot right: the Helio G90T is a great addition on the hardware front, as is the 64MP camera and 20MP front shooter. You also get great value, but the downside is the software — the phone is still on Pie, there's bloatware everywhere, and the MIUI 11 update won't be here until the end of the year.

Xiaomi has added a lot to this smartphone. You get the latest MediaTek Helio G90T processor along with a 64-megapixel rear camera, new design language and more, to make it look like a perfect smartphone for this price range. However, it is still not a perfect device. You still have problems with the ads and software needs more fine-tuning.
