I am not a hardcore mobile phone user and only need it for some WhatsApp, mail and for making phone calls. All I wanted for my new phone was: bigger memory, longer battery life, bigger display and faster response time. All this has the grade 8 and much more.
Setup was easy, but the included manual has no use at all. GsD there is YouTube, otherwise I wouldn’t even have known how to insert the sim card. But after this 1st hurdle there were no more obstacles. The fingerprint scan was a bit longer, with long fingernails it’s not that easy :-).
The color neptune blue is very nice, the display is very clear and sharp. The mobile phone lies well in the hand and thanks to an additionally purchased flipcover, even the protruding camera is well protected. All apps and programs react quickly and without jerking. The camera takes good photos. The battery lasts mega-long and the charging time I find very short. Unfortunately, the included charging cable is also very short.
I am very satisfied and therefore full star count.

It took me a long time until I finally decided to buy the Redmi Note 8 from Xiaomi. Had a Samsung before and thought the changeover would be unfamiliar and complicated, because young people find it much easier to make decisions and get used to the new one. But I have not regretted the purchase. The display is great, the menu navigation is self-explanatory. The pictures are perfect for a smartphone, amazingly sharp, pleases me again and again. I also find the battery life amazing. The only drawback, I have eliminated the fingerprint reader, it annoyed me because after several attempts it did not work. But it could also be that I put the smartphone into a suitable protective cover and the angle changed a bit while reading. Anyway, this is no shortcoming for me. I do not need an I-Phone or the newest, most expensive mobile phone because I put it in my pocket and do not hang it around my neck. For me, the price-performance ratio is right and therefore full points and clear purchase recommendation!

I bought the phone for my wife, the setup was a disaster, the apps freeze all the time or don’t work. Updates from the market are installed only sporadically. Unfortunately I had to send it back.

how can you write such a review the phone is top, setup is easy, I throw away every Samsung Especially the camera is awesome, no cell phone has ever taken such great pictures. Then it was defective at most, but this can happen with any brand. price performance is not to be surpassed

An honest consumer.

I can’t understand it. Setup is fast with Xiaomi (I have a Redmi 6A and now also a Redmi Note 8). And which apps should freeze all the time? Maybe something that does not work with Android 9?

Obviously, you should have let your wife set up your phone so you didn’t have to send it back. The setup of this device is ingeniously simple.

The camera on this phone is great, I was really impressed with the phone. After 6 hours of using it, the phone kept restarting itself, maybe about 10 times in the one day I used it. This was not only really annoying, but it meant I missed some really important work calls as my sim needs a code once phone restarts. I read up on the problem, and it seems like I’m not the only customer with the exact same fault. When I called Amazon to report it, the sound quality went from good to bad during the conversation, and the person from the technical team could not hear me well! Just keep this in mind when ordering, you may not experience the same but if the restarts happens randomly once/twice just return it straight away. Amazon deals with the problem efficiently but I probably won’t order the same phone again.

I needed a new Smartphone, because my old one has slowly given up the ghost. For me the camera was very important to take pictures of the beautiful landscapes on trips. The camera is just great and has a great resolution, I really didn’t think that it is so good. br>>br> I use the phone a lot every day, the battery lasts from about morning when I leave the house until evening. Only when I watch movies and series on the phone the battery doesn’t last the whole day.

Also the screen resolution is really good, for occasional movies and series it’s really good.

Compared to products of brand manufacturers the product is really impressive. The price difference to branded products is in my eyes not the quality of the smartphone, but only the fact that you don’t buy a brand name with it.

This smartphone was the right decision for me in any case

When I open the package I realize that the phone doesn’t come with headphones. This is not mentioned in the title of the product or in the specifications of what comes in the box. How am I supposed to listen to music? Should I spend more money? I demand compensation.

The smartphone is optimal for every type of use, because it has all the features you need. The price-performance ratio is very good here, as it is a great price for a – in my eyes – top class mobile phone. The face recognition works optimally. Only when there is not enough light, you have to unlock it manually, but for this there is a fingerprint sensor, which also works very well. With the camera you can take pin-sharp snapshots and the battery lasts very long with normal use of the device. The power and speed of the processors are very high, so that the smartphone can be used quickly and smoothly. What I like best about the Xiaomi is the design and ease of use.
I can 100% recommend this device to anyone looking for a top smartphone at a low price.

The information about the battery life is relatively worthless without the information about how intensively or sporadically the smartphone was used during this time (but at least now you know what the box looks like in which it is delivered).

I don’t buy any other brand anymore! I know this now for sure!
Have been through so many brands and must honestly say that on the one is now Xiaomi… 🙂 thanks!
48mp camera I had in comparison with the P30 Pro. There it can keep up really very well! Speed until now after about 4 months just TOP! Mobile phone closes the apps that are open in the background in general and apparently as a matter of principle always closes itself (that’s how it should be)! The Android version of Xiaomi is the sense of the product! Everything you need and no garbage 🙂 Guys I don’t get anything for it but check it out… Back if necessary. But that will not happen. Thank you – √√√√ TOP

I am completely satisfied. For the price-performance ratio almost unbeatable.

negative – display mirrors strongly
– slow motion video unusable
– no NFC

but with the price negligible.

The rest is top!

The previous mobile phone was already the hammer but this is really a mega device! The display is just cream and the feel and speed is a dream. The everlasting battery, which I am already used to from the company, is also very important for me. If my old Xiaomi Redmi phone would not have fallen from the 8th floor, I would still have it, after three years of use, only then I would have overlooked the current new one with the better camera 🙂 Yes, the photos are also better. All around a really successful mobile phone!!!

I would not have thought that the phone is so much fun. The setup quickly without problems. It looks great and makes good photos, but you should not expect too much from the 48 MP. Or parallel to DSLMs pull a Cam APSC with 24 MP makes still better photos! This becomes clear when you look at the Redmi photos at 100%. There the photos are muddy. Printouts up to 13×18 are ok.
The hammer is the battery lasts for 5 days – never seen before. One can recommend the mobile phone without hesitation.

TOP mobile phone for the TOP price,

very short: for the son for his birthday, old mobile phone (Galaxy S8) defective,
-&gt, absolutely equivalent, Ram fits, games run super smoothly, (even Fortnite),
the sixtieth shortcoming is the video calling the front camera / pictures a little cracked but
who can live with it -&gt, OUR OPINION -&gt, All around a mobile phone for everyday life, equal to the established providers.

So mobile phone arrived today. Shipping was fast through Prime.
Unpacked and noticed that it has no power plug for Germany. Very annoying.
No key to open the card slot, no headphones, only the mobile phone.
It is impossible to send a mobile phone without the right accessories, fortunately I have these things from my old mobile phone.
So the look is for this price range in any case very nice.
Camera also very good, you should not expect an IPhone but if you can make a few sections a quite soliedes Altagstaugliches mobile phone.

I have been using the phone for a month and I am very satisfied. Despite the price, it is well made and has not shown any problems so far. The colour is very unusual and really pretty. Unfortunately the camera is not the best, but for the price you can overlook that.
