Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite's gradient back is actually transparent

28 November 2018
The thickness difference of the back glass produces the effect.

The S10 series will not disappoint you though since it brings the best of the best on what Samsung can offer.

Subi the dog, 29 Nov 2018That's 1000 Euros. Why is the mi 8 lite so expensive. In austria... moreOr.. You can but from aliexpress global version (for example)... for 199$, and thats 175€, with free shiping. If they put price 45$, or 18$ (if you need to pay taxes above 22€ in Austria), then for 15 days you get Mi 8 Lite for 175-180€.. Those chinese phones have best prices in China.

But I get used too in few days. Speakers are the same as Note 9 too, if you're curious. Display isn't as Samsung levels, but at least I don't have those BoE issues. Cameras are phenomenal. I enjoyed it, and the storage is now 62GB left because I take too much photos and 4K videos on it. Gaming is straight awesome. Heating issues occur during 2 hours of using, so it's great. Charging is 65% on 30 minutes. And finally, my old flat screen TV in my bedroom is now used because I used it for YouTube.

Conclusion, it's my best phone so far. Also, the best phone for big screen junkies out there.

Big AMOLED screen
Stereo speakers that are not in the charging port
Big battery
Small notch and chin
Fast charging
Triple camera from the Pro
And a quite rich software on features

Oh and an IR blaster.
Personally though, the size and availability is what kills it for me

Definitely recommended. Just don't buy foldable phones yet cause it's still fragile.

I don't use face unlock in the first place. Also, I also don't like curve screens.

Good thing my mother hit the right phone for me. :)
