With NFC, USB-C, Dual SIM and microSD support, a versatile quad camera and a 4,000 mAh battery, it's easy to meet the needs of not too demanding users who want a complete smartphone for less than £170. It doesn't work miracles but simply what it was designed and built for.

It looks great for the price, has a best-in-class camera, performs well, sports an excellent set of connections and there’s even a case in the box. This phone really does beg the question, who actually needs to spend any more than £169 (plus £10 top-up) on a phone today? It's a query that's increasingly hard to answer, but our best guess now is nobody. So, if you want to spend more, go for it. But if you don’t, you know what to do.

It might not provide an upper limit of what a smartphone can feasibly offer in 2019, but when you consider that it costs as little as £180, then the Redmi Note 8T begins to present astonishingly good value for money. I’m yet to test it thoroughly, but at this early stage I’m mightily impressed with what the Redmi Note 8T has to offer. Motorola better watch its back, because its budget reign may be usurped in the coming months.

A very minor upgrade on a phone you haven't used

from TechRadar

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T feels like any other mid-range device, but for its price, that's actually a marvel: it has a design and specs you'd typically pay much more for, and feels relatively snappy too.

The Redmi Note 8T’s value just can’t be beaten on paper, and it impresses in the flesh too. For under £200, it delivers a splash-resistant, good looking body with a scratch-resistant glass front and back, and respectable internals. All combined with a big battery and four cameras, Xiaomi’s at the head of the pack when it comes to balancing budget phone affordability and quality.
