Mobiles have one basic function. To RING when a call comes in and have a very visible notification when you miss a call. This mobile rings whenever and might even notify you when you receive an email. Might is the keyword here. Very disappointed and would not recommend it at all.

The most unreliable device out there by far. If you want a phone to just talk and play old games on, this is the phone for you. It literally has no other uses, steer clear of this phone

Dont recommend. If you use it only for calls and chat, then its ok. My experience: recorded videos sometimes play audio while video itself lags. Gyroscope wasn't working properly for first few months. Now screen stops responding when gaming or watching YouTube, lock/unlock or restart fixes it for a while. Could be because of low ram.

Purchased two of these for me and my husband back in April 2020, we both still hold them and they work perfectly fine. To be honest I didn't expect it to work for so long this well.
The camera is pretty bad as soon as it's not daylight, the processor isn't good at games at all.
Now, I read the reviews here and I believe that most critics are unjust about this phone. Guys, get a little more real: you can't expect a phone for 150$ to be as good as one for 1000$, it's just not possible. But for it's cost Redmi 8A gets the job done perfectly. If this is the only option affordable to you at the moment, go for it, it's not a bad phone at all, just keep in mind it's specs. As long as you don't demand what it's not supposed to be doing, you're gonna be fine with it.

Ammy, 19 Nov 2020What is the meaning of this 40 - Global 1, 3, 5, 8, 4... moreSim card operators use different bands to connect your phone to their network, that they have license to use. Global version can use more bands so foreign sim cards can work on them.
