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.

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2019This or Mi 9 Lite? Gsmarena should do a review of Mi 9 Lite... moreThe answer is always redmi k20. Will leave you no regrets.

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.

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2019This or Mi 9 Lite? Gsmarena should do a review of Mi 9 Lite... moreIt is true that some prefer Oled screens over LCD screens; only, weighing the pros and cons you must realize that in the face of the other advantages and strengths that has the Redmi Note 8 Pro, knowing that its LCD screen supports the HDR (rare thing for this type of screen: by the way only the TCL Plex also supports my knowledge) it is better to choose him !!! Because for me, taking into account tests and performances, it is the best mid-range of this year 2019! So choose the Redmi Note 8 Pro; not to mention also that it is really good in photo.

TheWanderer, 04 Oct 2019"...it overtakes pretty much all of its directs rivals" Gsm... moreReferring to the test results on AnTuTu V8, for the comparison of gravure g90t and SD 730g, it appears that: Hélio G90T scores 281,000 points against 220,000 points for Snapdragon 730g. So, what are your claims based on ???

TheWanderer, 04 Oct 2019"...it overtakes pretty much all of its directs rivals" Gsm... moreThis is false what you say here! Apart from the GPU part where the SD 730G has a very slight superiority over the Helio g90t, for the rest the gravure g90t is indeed better. Really consult first the results on benchmark before coming to affirm anything. Thank you

This or Mi 9 Lite? Gsmarena should do a review of Mi 9 Lite to help me choose which one to get. They are actually at same price in my country, with exact same storage/ram combinations. It's really hard to choose

All hail King Xiaomi !

"...it overtakes pretty much all of its directs rivals" Gsmarena, please don't make me laugh. Helio g90t was created to take on sd 730g and the benchmarks prove that it'll definitely fail to match its performance

The Note 8 pro on the low light studio scene is very soft.

Great review as always. You could add the heavy weight of this Redmi to the list of the cons,as other rivals are lighter sets. Thank U

Can the issues with the ultra wide and macro cameras be fixed or at least improved with software updates from Xiaomi?

  • Mikey

The video section mentions nothing about stabilisation. Surely it can stabilise 1080p videos, right? Probably even 4k.

My 4 y.o flagship takes better photos.
They look awful for 16MP mode.
You can narely see tiles of roofs, trees that are far away were turned into sponge.

Finally! Thanks for the review GSMARENA
