  • Rocky

I am using redmi note 8 pro 6gb/64gb. Now am going to UK to complete my course. I have small doubt about my phone whether india phones will work or not in UK??

I regularly buy Redmi note. This time also I have bought it from Flipkart however the experience this time is very bad so far. The new phone redmi 8 pro - 8gb/128gb was simply not installing. It was stuck at updating stage. I have called both Mi and Flipkart. As per MI it may be a defective piece and asked to get replacement. Keeping faith in redmi I have asked for replacement from Flipkart. So far no replacement rec'd. The way flipkart is handling things I was disappointed.

Yeah in my phone its instant

It takes a few minutes to turned it on even while charging after baterry went 0%...

Is it only in my case?

Unfortunately you didnt check how much time it takes from drained baterry to the point you can start using the phone while in charging.. It takes a few minutes.. Its Like hell when you need to use it.

I purchased Redmi 8 pro phone after viewing detailed report on gsmarena. This report does not mention about accepting xiaomi terms and conditions for for opperating each and every feature of this phone including setting of alarm, viewing your photo and video clips recorded on this phone. This phone has made me extremely disappointed. Also sound system of this phone is below average. You just can not enjoy melody of the old hindi cine music.

I've issues with the Netflix app.
I can install, but when I run it I get error -1001 .
Problem is, there is no internet connection issue.
I can run Amazon Video, YouTube etc., But not Netflix.
It seems that the Netflix does not accept Note 8 pro video chipset ...
I was lucky with Note 4 but now with note 8 pro I feel cheated...

Not for gaming or heavy use.

For regular browsing, watching movies and expecting Good Loud speakers. Which one should I buy?

Samsung M21 (6 GB, 128GB) = INR 15999 (Readily available with exchange of my old phone)


Redmi Note 8 Pro (6 GB, 128GB) = INR 16999 (Readily available with exchange of my old phone)


Redmi Note 9 Pro (6 GB, 128GB) = INR 16999 (Have to wait for the next sale on 21-July-2020)

Call recording not works so help me

I have xrn8p, but the camera can't used for a while, photos/videos can't be saved on internal or sd card. To use the camera (photo/video), the phone must reboot.
Help me to solve this problem.

Labrador10, 05 Jun 2020one as usually I guessThe device has received plenty of updates depending on version. Indian version has gotten 4 major updates as far as I remember, global and Chinese versions got a lot more, and android has been upgraded to Version 10.
You can check the firmware-related posts in XDA. And custom ROM development is picking up pace.
Just search a bit before you make assumption.

Hardware video playing isn't good. it's like old lcd screens, sharpening video too much and ruin the experience. With mx player. u can test that. when playing a nice quality video switch to software decoder and video suddenly getting smoother. video graphic gpu settings are not wuite right imo. its not like big issue most of the people i guess but for me it's a bad new. really really bad news :/ HATE IT!
