Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite in for review

18 November 2018
Officially, it costs about half as much as the premium Mi 8, which could make this a great value-for-money mid-ranger.

I am waiting for review of mi 8 lite by GSMArena. Please review this phone as soon as possible.

Anonymous, 18 Nov 2018Man, i was so excited when they announced the mi 8 lite but... moreThere is this thing about aspect ratios: My Redmi Note 5AI (I had j5 2015 before buying Note 4 and then Note 5) has an 18:9 6" screen. 18:9 6" feels like a 5.5" 16:9 pone in hand and the 19:9 inch Mi 8 Lite should feel like a 5.6" device in hand so you shouldn't really worry about it being that big.

On the other hand, if you really want a smol device, the Mi A2 Lite exists. It has a 5.8" 19:9 display which should feel like a 5.2"-5.3" device in hand. I recently ordered this device off Aliexpress for my aunt so I'll get to see it in person too. Hope I helped you!

S9, 18 Nov 2018Does Mi 8 SE exist in global version?i think there is none, sadly... one of the best phones in that price range

If I understand range right, Snapdragon 660 is as fast as 820, but packs more cores? (have the 820 in Xiaomi Mi5). Kinda lost touch with Snapdragon CPU types, only know 845 is their current top of the line and 820 used to be like 2 years ago. Never really checked other ranges much...

S9, 18 Nov 2018Does Mi 8 SE exist in global version?Every xiaomi phone can be turned to global with xiaomi.eu roms.

  • Zamach

What justifies a significant price bump on this iteration, the Mi A2 has the same processor, chipset yada-yada-yada, its main camera and battery size may be a bit worse compared to this (oh, and this one has a notch), but in my book that's not enough of an 'improvement' to justify what, 60-70$ price bump? Maybe I'm missing on something...not sure...but at this point you may as well turn your attention towards Pocophone...

Anonymous, 18 Nov 2018Is it already NFC? It doesn't have NFC to my knowledge. I don't think any Xiaomi phone under €400 does
