BlackHat, 04 Oct 2019Barely beat the GPU of 712? So, how do you fight against yo... moreYep, gladly sacrifice 1 fps for Snapdragon for versality, efficiency, and modding community support.

It seems they tested G90t in testing board with water chiller so it could win against 730G, meanwhile, xiaomi takes aggresive stance to keep rn8p cool by implementing aggresive thermal throttling.

Later, some indian will release thermal throtling remover module and rn8p might able to reach 730G performance, if you comfortable with >50 celcius gadget....

  • Xiaomi is the KING!

Note 8 Pro or Mi 9T/K20?

  • Karam

Does the phone allow shooting in raw?

regarding the price range and market i am blown away by daylight camera samples , excellent quality, but ofc can't expect much from low light , ultra wide and zoom in this price range , the best camera at this price range so far. that's the first time i see xiaomi going beyond expectations in camera section.

Especially given the quality of rigor that Xiaomi provided for its smartphones, well, their abundance can only be beneficial for the customer who will have a multitude of choices to suit, according to his tastes, his means; while being beneficial for Xiaomi themselves as they sell a lot and forge a large market share through a growing customer base loyal to Xiaomi.

Here are some strengths that the Redmi note 8 pro:
1) It has a robust battery of 4500mah, giving it a 114 hours endurance rating, which is just stellar and prodigious (knowing that it is a performance worthy of batteries 5.000 mah) ...
2) It has a UFS 2.1 type storage that gives it a PCMARK score of 13115 (which is just phenomenal when you know it's a close UFS 3.0 type of storage.) ...
3) The processor of this smartphone (Hélio G90T) has a stress test identical to that of the SD 845; it gives you an idea of ​​its ability to handle heating under heavy workloads and yes sir! Thanks to Xiaomi for this liquid-cooled room that equips this Redmi note 8 Pro ...
4) It has a GPU of 800Mhz (higher than the frequency of the SD 855); A triple ISP processor for the image processing for the camera ; It has a best score ever achieved so far on PCMARK Work 2.0, surpassing the powerful SD 855 and the Kirin 990 with a score of 10013 (if you doubt what I say go check yourself) ...
5) For those that it can delight and who particularly like Amoled screens, well, its LCD screen supports the HDR ...
6) With an AnTuTu V7 score of 225,000 points it is far better than the iPhone X (186,000 points) and is on par with the Huawei P20 Pro (besides the Helio g90t is better than the Kirin 970 which equips this P20 pro) ...
7) it is equipped with a GPS chip that has a precision of 2m (just famous !) ...
8) It is equipped with a NFC chip (NXP-, SN100T), so it supports the NFC for the pleasure of those who use it a lot ...
9) Since Xiaomi has already downloaded the Kernel source codes released by Par Mediatek for this phone, and well, certainly the custom ports for the gcam will be available soon without o ublier the possible update for Android 10 which can now be possible with the release of the sources of the kernel ...
10) it is compatible with Quick Charge 4.0 and Pump Express 4.0 (even if in the box the supplied charger is just compatible Quick charge 3.0). Thank you!!!

TheWanderer, 04 Oct 2019"...it overtakes pretty much all of its directs rivals" Gsm... moreHere are the comparison with Mi9T (SD730) :

3dmark Sling Shot Extrême Opengl3.1
Mi9T : 2178
https://benchmarks.ul.com/hardware/phone/Xiaomi+Mi+9T+review
Redmi Note 8 Pro : 2439

GFXBench Care chase (on-screen/offscreen)
Mi 9T : 13/16
https://www.frandroid.com/marques/xiaomi/599597_test-xiaomi-mi-9t
Redmi Note 8 Pro : 14/18

This is great device for that price. If someone like sd procesor and amoled screen,he can get 9t,which is 20€ expensive. Most important is that we have choice.Everything depends of customer flavor.

Lol whateverr i don't care if how powerful the g90t is. one thing i don't like this chip because of the heating problem. wtf why mediatek do this? because they want people to suffer Like hell in there hand's when holding a phone lol that's the big reason. why i don't waste my money with this stupid kind of chip. peace Lmao. 3

TheWanderer, 04 Oct 2019"...it overtakes pretty much all of its directs rivals" Gsm... moreIt did it in past benchmarks but now he barely moves away from 712, maybe Xiaomi's solution for temperatures was throttle the soc, many people are forgeting that is a 12nm chip.

Digs, 04 Oct 2019I've read the online result 730G vs G90T. Go on see for yourself.Yes I saw many videos where the G90T go first a few minutes then throttles at 730 sub levers.
