Tech Review: Redmi Note 8 Pro || Something For The Power Users
<div class="text-justify">

In 2019, Xiaomi released yet another mid-range phone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro. They, of course, released it with other models, the low-range and their flagship, but with budget in mind, I had to kick out the flagship models from the equation.

At that time, I was on a budget, and yet, I was searching for something that would be worth my money with the specifications I was aiming for.

You see, with tech and gadgets, I go all in for performance. I am a freak for performance. Before I consider price, I always consider my usage and needs. So when I do come up with that, I then begin to look at what my budget is, and often times, I am on a tight budget. <sub>*Money don't grow on trees, y'all.*</sub>

In this case, I needed a new phone, as my [Honor 8](https://www.gsmarena.com/honor_8-8195.php) at that time just wasn't cutting it anymore. I needed a new phone that would serve me well in terms of power, speed, display, memory, camera, sound, and the like. And my budget at that time was about $100 (₦75k).

I found the Redmi Note 8 Pro after a friend suggested it to me. I checked it out and realized that it was just right for what I needed. The only thing was that it was $120 (₦90k). 20 extra dollars for something that was perfect for my needs didn't seem like a bad deal, so I went ahead and bought the phone.

It's been three years since then, and this phone has stuck closer than a brother. We have been through thick and thin. It is now time to let it go because it no longer meets my needs (which have grown enormously) and it no longer meets my basic necessities.

![divider4.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/olujay/23w2cVaD3qRLCVJLkxCFRPtjYM4WtbgwAzVaQiZfXqVAmbXBbGsMwUNJKUGmEhdhg6Rew.png)

<center>**ʙᴏᴅʏ**</center>

The phone has a whopping weight of 200 g. That's a little heavy. And it's most noticeable when compared to a phone that weighs 50 g less.

It felt heavy in my hands at first, but I got used to it and could only tell (or remember) when I recently held much lighter phones. And with three years under my belt, it had become part of me.

<center>**ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ**</center>

The Redmi Note 8 Pro has a 4500 mAh battery. That is a lot of power for a midrange phone. At the time, such a large battery was mostly found on flagship models from larger competitors like Samsung. And this was really good as it gave me more juice for my daily activities.

This was particularly useful during the pandemic, when I had a lot of time on my hands and was into mobile gaming a lot. Games like Call of Duty Mobile are power-intensive applications, and this phone did so well at giving me enough juice to play for a very long time. Even after three years, it still provides enough juice to fire.

The phone was designed for 18W fast charging. With my experience, it took about 2 hours to go from 0% to 100%, and somehow, it maintained that charging rate for 3 years.

<br>

<center>**ᴘʀᴏᴄᴇssᴏʀ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍᴇᴍᴏʀʏ**</center>

This phone has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM, as well as a MediaTek Helio G90T (*12 nm*) processor. And this was a lot of computing capacity for a mid-range phone at that time. It was simply fantastic for gaming. It meant faster processing speed and great power usage optimization.

With 6GB of RAM, I was able to do a lot simultaneously without worrying much about lags and slowdowns. There was never a time when I felt the phone was not working properly. It always managed to power through.

In terms of processing speed and strength, the Mediatek Helio G90T (*12nm*) processor performed admirably. But this particular chipset had something I never liked about it: overheating.

![1650567207642-01.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/olujay/EoptM7jd6dD2vv6sS8LxHPYcxL9aPPuvqrfzRBxYjQTybXjW9JEu52qQYc6ZR6qhwhj.jpeg)

Overheating was a big problem with this phone. During intensive power usage as well as prolonged use of specific features such as video shooting, it frequently became extremely hot. And this is especially true in mobile gaming with games like CODM (Call of Duty Mobile). I found this really infuriating most times, as I'd need to wait for it to cool down before continuing.

<br>

<center>**sᴏᴜɴᴅ**</center>

This particular aspect of this phone was not much out of the ordinary. It has a great speaker that has really clear audio and some considerable punch with bass and beats.

It only has one loudspeaker for its main audio, so stereo sound out of it.

The most interesting thing, however, would be its microphone. I would say, as I am, that it has such an amazing mic. It does really well to capture the sound around it. With great reception for the necessary frequency range, I could make sound recordings (and videos) and get really clear audio. And somehow, it has stereo recording.

<br>

<center>**ᴅɪsᴘʟᴀʏ**</center>

The Redmi Note 8 Pro uses an IPS LCD screen. Over the years, it has been the most commonly used display screen used in Android phones. Now, there are much better displays like AMOLED, Super AMOLED, and Dynamic AMOLED *and the list goes on and on*...

![1650531995021-01.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/olujay/23xydoZW2EhtzFZcHjrRVYNAjysRct5co4r3xco5Yt5AqscA8QphsXPhtJPMoKTHyAYGE.jpeg)

This screen may look ordinary (compared with AMOLED), but one thing I love about it is the protection it has. The phone has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Corning has been known to make really strong glasses for mobile phones over the years and has been ever-improving. I've heard a lot about the Gorilla Glass 5 and how durable it makes the phone.

The phone was advertised as being really strong and capable of withstanding impacts should it fall, or be hit. I can attest to this as I spent 2<sup><sub>1</sub><sub>/</sub><sub>2</sub></sup> years without needing to replace the phone at any point in between. All the phone sustained were some cracks, but the touch screen and display worked just fine.

It was only six months ago, in July, that something entirely new developed on the screen. Half of the screen just went black, making it extremely difficult to see all of the information the phone tries to display. And this will be the only reason I'll need to replace the screen.

<br>

<center>**ᴄᴀᴍᴇʀᴀ**</center>

This is the main attraction of this phone.It's the special sauce in this phone that has made my mobile gadget experience over the last three years very productive.

In most cases, Android phones that are not flagship models tend not to have the best cameras. They are frequently outfitted with subpar cameras. But with the Redmi Note 8 Pro, we have something beyond the average for a budget phone. With its camera, I was able to advance (to some extent) in my photography.

It has a 64-megapixel camera (that's a lot of megapixels) and some other jargon that does really well to deliver photographs with great detailing and color capture. It also has great portrait mode, which I never really used much but still appreciate.

It has a gyro-EIS (electronic image stabilization gyroscope) that greatly helps with image stabilization. This is particularly useful when I am making videos and my hands are not, you know, stable enough and could cause undesired motion in the video frame. Many of my videos made with my phone handheld come out really stable. It's also great for taking photos, as they'll be less blurry than if your hands aren't stable.

The phone is also equipped with a macro camera. Although it is only 2 MP, it comes in handy when I feel the urge to experiment with macro photography. It has a really small resolution, so I never used it often, but it's great to have it there.

It's unfortunate that, for some reason that I still do not know, the cameras seem to have gone on an indefinite vacation; that just happened recently.

<center>**ɪʀ ʙʟᴀsᴛᴇʀ**</center>

This is another cool feature I love about this phone—and probably one thing I love about Xiaomi. IR (infrared) blasters make it possible to use the phone like a remote controller for many appliances.

I used it often to turn on and off air conditioning systems and TVs. There are numerous options and appliances to select from. And it's really cool to have that power in the palm of one's hands. It, however, does not have a long range but serves really well at a good distance.

![divider4.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/olujay/23w2cVaD3qRLCVJLkxCFRPtjYM4WtbgwAzVaQiZfXqVAmbXBbGsMwUNJKUGmEhdhg6Rew.png)

<center>**ᴛʟ;ᴅʀ**</center>

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is a phone that was worth every penny I spent on it, and maybe even more. It is one of Xiaomi's proudest models, and one that I feel privileged to have used.

I could have gone longer with it, as it still managed to deliver well, but now that many of its functions are out of service, like its camera and screen, I'd have to move on to another device. Three years is quite a number.

There are many more mid-range phones that perform far better than the Redmi Note 8 Pro, but it's amazing that so much can be crammed into a phone that is affordable. It is without a doubt something for power users.

I have now gone for something new and different, as my needs required. I am still observing it's performance. Again, I went for what exactly I wanted (and needed). But that'll be a story for another day.

The screen went bad, and even the cameras seem to be disconnected as they no longer work. I have now gotten a much new model, the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

The Redmi Note 10 carries much more interesting specifications. It's not the latest model, but I went for it particularly because it seemed to be much appealing (and more affordable) than the latest model, the Note 11 Pro.

I think I may stick with this brand, Xiaomi, for a long time. I love their UI, and they seem loyal to making their phones affordable so as to make customers like me happy.

What phone brand's your favorite?

Great review!
I've been using a Redmi 9 as my daily driver since 2020.
Although the specs are not as good as the Note 8, many features are comparable.
Xiaomi tends to make good budget phones whose quality make them feel premium.

I bought the phone new at about ₦66,000 ($88 using the conversion rate you used in the post).

It's 2 years old and it still feels good.

Since Xiaomi released the Note 8 series, I have observed some sort of decline in their specifications. I think that may be owing to the chip scarcity we experienced for a while. Nonetheless, they still manage to deliver well.

I have a cousin of mine (the guy in on the photos I shared in this post) that uses the Redmi Note 9 Pro. He saw how much value Xiaomi puts into Redmi phones while still ensuring affordability. He has ever-since loved it and never regretted his decision. He also is into photography and he takes really amazing photos with his phone.

These are good photos of your phone, and I love the feel I am getting from your wallpaper.

I think the 'decline in specs' is a general thing actually, though subtle in bigger brands.

Look at the Samsung Note 10 Plus and the S22 Ultra for example.
The base model for Note 10 plus has 12 gb RAM while that of S22 Ultra has 8gb RAM. Not really a problem but it is what is.

Thanks about the wallpaper. I use this automatic wallpaper carousel. So it changes from time to time.

I needed to get a new phone, since my Redmi Note 8 Pro was beginning to fail, and I went for the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

Redmi Note 10 Pro is not the latest model, but I went for it particularly because I just didn't like the Note 11 series. Xiaomi went on to reduce important specifications rather than upgrade them: that was disappointing.

I have been using the Note 10 Pro for a few days now and I am loving every single bit of it.

Other than the bad recording quality, is there anything you don't like about the Note 11 Pro?

I used the note 8 in 2020 immediately my Samsung galaxy a52 was stolen. The Note 8 was lighter. I can attest to the fact that the battery was awesome. Xiaomi have a fetish for storage and good speakers. But Samsung will always remain my best. I currently use the galaxy A72 and it's been a stellar experience. 


You went full on review on this. The pictures are astonishing. You put in a lot of work as well with arranging the phone for the shoot. 

Maybe one day you should consider contenting on YouTube as well.

Darn it! That would have been difficult to process. I do not like any of my gadgets to go missing, no matter how small or big. It can get me depressed. In fact, I thought I lost my Oraimo Freepods Pro once and was really bummed about it, and it's well over a year old now.

Xiaomi has a knack for jamming a lot of goodies into their products for a much lower price. I love that about them. But I'd still admit that Samsung is king at this time; I would not dispute that.

I know how interesting I found the A50 they released about three years ago, and then the A52, and then the A70. I have no doubt that the A72 model is incredible. I particularly like the A series. I believe there are a lot of considerations for a wide spectrum of users, and that you are indeed having a stellar experience.

> You went full on review on this.

I mean, writing has now become something that I cannot do without; it's more like an extension of myself now. I just couldn't help myself.😁

I love putting out content now (the more reason I try to be more intentional with every day that passes), and really, I am considering sticking with a niche more often now. It's going to center around tech, as that's something I have always loved and have unconsciously grown a propensity to explore.

Thank you for the kind words, man.

I love that you use the word "monstrous." 😁 I guess that's the best way to decribe it.

I am not sure you can still get it in the market as it has been off production for a long time now. But I think they are still out there. You may as well get yourself a good one.

Redmi is so popular right now because Xiaomi offers so much value for such a low price, and especially because they produce phones that are extremely durable and solid.

My new phone is the Redmi Note 10 Pro. It's not the latest model (last year's model), but I went for it because of how much it packed into just one phone. I am a power user, and that was important for me. Moreso, Samsung's equivalents are much more expensive in comparison.

One thing particularly amazing about Xiaomi is how they managed to get to top three with Apple and Samsung with the fact that that many of their phones are mostly affordable as opposed to their competitors.

Xiaomi somehow manages to give much for much less price.

I was going to go for the Note 11 series, but I found the 10 series to be quite impressive, and within my budget.

What's your favourite thing about your phone?

Right now I am looking at myself asking How do you guys make pretty shots with your phone camera. It’s been long I used Redmi which was about 2 years ago. I used a Redmi Note 9s. I loved the device but I misplaced the phone. It pained me so much. 

Right now, I am using Poco that’s a flagship device but the camera is no where great. Hurts though.

The pretty shots were taken with just a click of a button—the shutter button. 😉

I love Redmi for their affordability and sophistication. Other brand series tend to cost more as they are often flagship phones. The Redmi models are often in the mid-range category, which is our level.

I believe it's not just about the camera. One's perspective on observation plays the major role, followed by control of the parameters of the device.
